You are stuck buying their muzzle devices which is fine if to like them. They are some of the heaviest muzzle devices at 4oz.

Now some entrepreneurs out there are "jailbreaking" cans by cutting off the fixed mounts and making them 1.375x24 like for the SDN-6. https://www.facebook.com/ECCOmachine...type=3&theater
Could probably be done on a resonator as well.

If YHM made the Resonator that was threaded 1.375x24 like the Turbo K it would be my top choice for a 30 cal rifle can.
It may just be me because I have a lot of cans, but the ability to standardize or even swap between multiple families of muzzle devices has never mattered that much to me. I tend to buy a can with one or two firearms in mind (or even build a rifle with the can in mind) and just leave those the way I have them.

Given how popular it is nowadays, I am probably missing something. Maybe in a few years when new generations of cans show up I will be kicking myself for not worrying about it.

I think you would be really happy with any of those three. I don't know if this changes your mind at all, but Griffin is currently running a promo where you can buy their new modular aluminum 22lr can for $125 + tax stamp when you buy one of their other suppressors (including the Optimus). I think all of their rifle cans are really nice and tend to sound good. The downside is that Griffin sells a lot of different .30 Cal cans outside of the Optimus, so you might get bogged down trying to figure out which one suits you best.

There are so many good ones out there from so many different companies that even I have a hard time deciding what my priorities for future purchase might be. Pretty silly given I already have 4 .30 Cal cans . . .

I have the griffin paladin I really like. It has a taper mount which is a hybrid between Direct thread and QD. Best of both worlds. I really like the Rugged Radiant that just came out as well.

I ended up ordering the Resonator. For what it could do for the price, it was clear cut for me. I'll buy a couple extra muzzle devices and be good. 90% of the time ill be shooting suppressed in my back yard so im not too concerned about the device as long as it holds up. The suppressor is primarily for my neighbors and my dogs benefit.

If it works as well as the YHM Turbo I have does, I think you'll be happy. I keep having to talk myself out of a Resonator to have a beater can lying around.
