So I could use a little insight on a .30cal suppressor Login/Join

I am starting to think I should take the plunge. I talked with a guy recently who has what I believe he said had a Thunderbeast muzzle brake and suppressor. The suppressor just threaded on to his mb. I believe he said that set up was about $1000 which i am thinking included the stamp. Does that sound about right?


Other recommendations on other set ups?. I would like to be able to use to shoot on different bolt action rifles mostly. He said you can use it on other, smaller calibers but your noise suppression is not as good. Which makes sense.

Thoughts.

Traditional when talking about price, the $200 stamp is not included in the tag. TBAC is considered by most to be The Bar when it comes to bolt action suppressors. Therefore commands a hefty price tag to go with that reputation! A good place to take a look around: https://www.silencershop.com/s...tml?manufacturer=480

The real question is always what are you gonna put it on and what style of shooting. As for using it on smaller calibers with a larger caliber suppressor... several companies make different size end caps that help in the that department.

My most versatile can is my SiCo Omega. I can use it with QD brakes/flash hiders, direct thread to guns without muzzle devices in caliber from 22LR to 300WM.

If bolt actions are your primary tool, length and weight will be important factors to consider. Your favorite rifle quickly becomes your worst enemy when you hang a long heavy chink of metal off the end, at least from a hunting perspective. If its jsut a range/paper puncher, it probablyu wont matter much and other facotrs may be more important such as suppression level and consistent POI when suppressed which I believe is TBACS claim to fame.

Thunderbeast has a system that I had my older 30P-1 (since replaced by the “Ultra” line) converted to. Separate flash suppressors or muzzle brakes are available with different threads to fit a variety of hosts on a semipermanent basis. The male threads on the muzzle devices are all the same and the can then screws onto them.

I now use the suppressor on a Colt AR, a Thompson Center in 300 Blackout, Sakos and Tikkas in 223, 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 (and formerly 300 Win Mag), and (soon, I hope) a Seekins SP-10 (308). As the name implies, the 30P-1 was designed for .30 cartridges, but when used on my 223 Tikka it’s much quieter than with the 308 (both have 20 inch barrels). I don’t know a lot about suppressors and perhaps a dedicated 223 can would be quieter than the 30P-1, but the latter works well enough for me to be happy with it.

What's the most powerful rifle you plan on attaching it to?

Do some research on the suppressor manufacturer’s QD muzzle device. Some perform better than others. I won’t name names but I’ve had issues with one that kept loosening up and even blew my suppressor off my barrel. Luckily no damage. I recommend Dead Air’s Sandman suppressors.

I like my Sandman but the lack of direct thread would keep me from making it my only can.

You can use a SiCo Omega on 22 LR?
Tell me more about that, before I go and buy a 22 LR can!

Thunderbeast makes a great suppressors. They are seen a lot on long range precision rifles. The ultra series uses the newer designed the threaded muzzle break which is nice design. They are known for their repeatability in terms of point of impact shift. I highly recommend them.

Thanks guys, as far as the most powerful rifle I would use stayfrosty.

Not completely sure. 300wsm or 300wm, possibly a 30-338?

But also have a 30 06 and 7mm wm among others. Wink

I’m on my iPad or I’d type up a very lengthy reply. The short version is yes you can, but don’t. You’ll be much happier with a dedicated rimfire can. I’ll expand on that in the morning when I’m back in front of my laptop.

Don't shoot 22lr in a sealed can. You will regret it quickly with all the trash a 22lr put out. Just the molten lead that ends up in a can could cause bad things with a high powered round tries to pass. I own a couple of 30 cal cans (Harvester and ARC30) and they are completely different to shoot with. Decide on what you want and spend whatever it costs. NFA items are basically lifetime investments, so buy once, cry once.

I've been out of the suppressor market since I have what I need but one thing you may want to consider is the manufacturer's blessing to use their suppressor for certain calibers, barrel lengths and rate of fire. I find calling the manufacturer directly and addressing all of your concerns is time well spent vs. trying to find answers on the internet. After questioning a few reputable manufacturers, research the ones that fit your needs and buy accordingly. Warranty is important and in a depressed market I'd stick to manufacturers that are likely to stick around to honor their warranty.

If the 22LR can is rated for .223 as well. 1-2 slow fire rounds will clean it out.

I do this on my titanium 6" form 1 can. Blows it out clean as a whistle! No need to scrape or soak.
