Hey guys, not sure if everyone knows, Aero Precision is releasing a small line of .30 caliber cans called the Lahar-30. I've got a few coming in soon and can take some pictures. They seem pretty reasonably priced but it'll be nice when I can actually see them.

I have always been tricked into thinking that suppressor design is some kind of black art.
and mere mortals don't understand.
So is it really possible some new supplier gets it right on the balance of size, suppression, attachment, etc.

I think it's easier for a new player in that market to get a good product out the first time. I built a form 1 can from billet to final product in 2014. There was a wealth of information and experience out at that time for the layman. I can only assume a manufacturing company that has some sort of R&D and engineers, could very easily roll out an affordable and effective silencer the first try.

Just like any firearm, they will never be perfect at everything, but I think this will be a good entry level rifle suppressor. It's looking like it may be like some of the YHM cans but updated with some better features.

Also, the fact that some Suppressor designers are using a somewhat universal thread pitch at the rear, which allows for more mainstream muzzle systems, really helps the new guys on the block.

Who wants to be stuck with a direct thread pitch, or be stuck with a gigantic R&D cost trying to design a new suppressor mount, when you can just include a removable direct thread mount, and allow for the use of a Keymo adapter, Silencerco ASR, etc.

I know Daniel Defense’s newest line of suppressors are being shipped this way, and would expect Aero to do something similar.

Already invested in Keymo, ASR, YHM muzzle device, and don’t want to invest in another ecosystem? Great. Just swap out the direct thread module for the adapter of your choice.

That is how Aero is doing it also. I believe it’s 1 3/8 x 24. TPI.

The web page mentions the Aero Precision Mantle Quick Detach system, so it sounds like they are developing their own mounts too.

Yes, although not available yet. I see some teaser pictures, kind of looks like the Surefire mount. I could be way off though.

Well I saw B&T put out a .30 cal suppressor that accepts surefire mounts, so maybe surefire released the tdp on the mounts to relieve some pressure in the civilian market. Same could be true for Aero. Curious

The B&T is interesting as it mounts to the Surefire mount and the traditional Rotex mount.
any competent mfg. doesn't need a tdp for a product they can easily see and measure. I'm unsure if there are IP issues that needed to be solved, but I would guess not, just a marketing decision.
Not having seen the B&T in real life I wonder if the locking mechanism has the same mechanism as the surefire one.

Interesting name! If you haven't spent time in the Puget Sound region, there's the question of whether Mt. Rainier will blow in our lifetime. If it does, they believe that everything in the Lakewood and Tacoma area will be buried in a flow of superheated mud many dozens of feet deep. You can't outrun it, your only hope is to try to get to high ground. Where I worked in downtown Tacoma, the escape plan in this event was to run straight West up South 21st Street to Hilltop, uphill at about a forty five degree grade for about a mile. Basically, forget it.

That flow is called the Lahar, and Aero Precision was right next door to us in Tacoma. They are in the process of moving to their new facility in Lakewood. There is little chance they'd survive the Lahar where they're relocating. I briefly accepted a job with them, but the commute sank that. Really good people, and I wish that had worked out. I'm glad to see they're bringing a suppressor to market - that game needs more players.

Now ya'll get to know the inside joke on the name. Smile
