I picked up my last pending suppressor yesterday, a Saker 762. I snagged a Trijicon Accupoint scope from the classifieds as well to top off the Ruger GSR. This should cover my suppressor needs though if the Hearing Protection Act passes I might get a Salvo 12 and Omega.

All SilencerCo:
Saker 762
Octane 45 HD
SS Sparrow
Spectre II

Sorry about the craptastic photos. I have nowhere good to photograph rifles at this time. At least there are no feet!

If that Act does pass, you should see a hefty tax credit.

It is, a Gen 2. I am very fond of that rifle.

not to derail your thread.. but is the rail on the 516 replaceable? I really dislike quad rails >.<

No problem, I'm not sure it had any rails to begin with. I couldn't say if the rails are replaceable but I think there are versions available with non-railed forends too. I will say that the 516 is heavy. I know some of that is the piston assembly but I could probably do without the rails myself. I built a PSA DI rifle in preparation for Clinton's win (I've never been so happy to be wrong) and it's so much easier to handle than the 516. My PSA is a everything-you-need, nothing-you-don't rifle. I still wouldn't give up the 516 for the highest shelf DI rifle though. I just kinda wish it didn't have the quad rail.

I bought a Barrett Rec7 last year. It was my first piston AR - and I am now forever sold on pistons.

It also came with a keymod rail system - which completely ruined quad rails for me from then on.

To come full circle for the thread here... I can't wait until my SiCo Saker comes in for it :P

You're going to enjoy that can, I've been very impressed with mine.

Count me in for a Salvo 12 and a Harvester to start with.

I started out with the same four, covers just about everything you should need.

I bought both the Sparrow & Spectre back in 2013 because I couldn't decide between them. It seemed a little silly at the time but I'm glad I went that route. My wife and I shoot a lot of rimfire so that lets us both have quiet fun and the Spectre is noticeably better on pistols while the Sparrow works better on rifles.

I am really anxious to try the Saker on the Ruger GSR. I've wanted to suppress that rifle since I bought it back in 2013. I set up the SIG 516 to use it as well but it was just an after thought. It was great that I stumbled upon a good deal on a Trijicon Accupoint for the GSR in the classifieds this weekend. I've wanted that scope for the GSR for a few months but kept holding off due to the price. Now I'll have the complete package ready to go for next weekend. The scope will add more weight to the package overall but I think (or at least hope) that it will balance better with the can hanging off the end.

I haven't used a keymod rail but Magpul's MLok did the same thing for me. Just add little rail sections where you need them or get accessories that attach directly. It works great on my 10/22 as well.

Yup! I replaced the rails on my scar with some MLok rails. It's amazing.

I'm jealous. Waiting on three currently. You're going to love the Saker. I shot my buddy's on his .308 and his AK. The can is a beast. I went another route just to try something different and purchased a Sandman L.

Nice collection! I've been more than impressed with the Salvo. I wouldn't have it as my first suppressor, but I'm glad I have one. Lighter than what it looks and sounds fairly decent even in the 8" configuration.

My wife and I shot one at a demo shoot and loved it. Even she wanted to buy one...until I told her the price, even through the SPEQ program. I just don't shoot shotguns very often and didn't think it would see enough use. My others will see plenty of use.

If that Act does pass, you should see a hefty tax credit.


One FFL/SOT I talked to the other day when my stamp came in for my MASK said that HE believes that the tax credit refund addendum was added to the hearing protection act to give the lawmakers something to throw out in order to pass the bill. Since everyone likes to barter and make a deal, and there's a lot of give-and-take in lawmaking, if they can throw that section out to pass it, it's worth it to the people who drafted the bill since that addendum doesn't do much for the future of the Hearing Protection Act, and gets it through.

Sucks, because I'd like $600 back just as much as you'd like $2600 back. but, really, if that FFL is right, I'd still be tickled pink that the damn bill becomes law.

I'm sure another (and maybe even the main) reason to put that language in is for those who may have wanted to wait on a suppressor purchase until it passes to save the $200. Silencerco may have lost out on a lot of sales if people had decided to wait to see the outcome of the bill. With that language in, the consumer wouldn't have to wait to save the $200 since it would be refunded to them.

photoman - Look for them on sale and on GB. My understanding is that dealers would get some for free if they spent a certain amount of money. So, some dealers turned around and sold them at reduced a cost. It's still a lot of money, but I paid $699 for mine.

I would get a $2400 check if it passes as is Smile

Yeah I'd agree that the main goal is to have the bill pass and get cans off the NFA.
Getting money back is icing on the cake - but if push came to shove... I'll take the cake without the icing.
