Re: Suppressors

Suppressors are the best , I run the YHM phantom an silencerco osprey and a few from Huntertown Arms . If your serious about getting one find a dealer that will let you demo one and compare them to others .

Re: Suppressors

I run a self built suppressor on my 308 win. A well designed suppressor is well worth the trouble

Re: Suppressors

I run a suppressor on my 243,260 and 308.
The good: much more pleasent to shoot in general. once you shoot with one you feel stupid shooting without it. Its like running your car without a muffler.
Animals cant tell where the shot came from. they often run towards you.
The bad: The weight and added length. My 243 and 260 have 26" barrels add 9" of suppressor makes them pretty awkward. my 308 has a 20" barrel wish I had gone 18". Get a titamium one if you can swing it. When I know I am going to be hiking a long ways I leave it off due to the weight.

Re: Suppressors

The only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on a suppressor is the fact that ALL of the guns that I would use it on all wear 30" tubes.

I just can't see cutting 6 - 8 inches off of any one of them!!!

Re: Suppressors

You dont really have to cut them it would just look like a 1800's french musket if you didnt.
