AR silencer info wanted

I'm putting together an AR for coyotes, . . . thinking about maybe using a silencer to knock the noise down some.

I know because it is a supersonic round that it will still be noisy, but I'm looking for an effective AND economic "helper" to do something to the noise.

All suggestions (except the oil filter one ) gladly and thankfully received.

May God bless,
Dwight

Silencer Shop for sure! They can get you set up and help you with the paperwork where ever you are. Give them a call. I have a AAC 7.62SD that works well in several guns from 5.56-7.62. Tell them what you have and what you want to do as well as your budget; they will point you in the right direction.

Thanks from dwight55 and Red Leg

Dwight,

Silencer Shop is about a mile from my house, I can swing by there and chat with them about your application. I bought my Surefire suppressor from them back when they were operating out of their house a few years back. In my discussion with them, we settled on a 30 caliber Surefire can. I used it from my 300 WM down to my M4 Carbine. I just installed the brake/suppressor adapter on every rifle I want to use the suppresso, I even have one my M1a hunting rig.

I suggest that you do the same - get a 30 caliber can. It can be with 5/8x24 thread for direct threading on the barrel or one that utilizes adapters with 5/8x24 thread.

The AR match rifle barrel I am sending you will be threaded 5/8 x 24 before I box it up. Do your research on which can you like and let me know. There are some cans with adapter that require clearance past the adapter. My SPR project with Allen Engineering can requires 2.4 inches past the muzzle to be .725 +0, -.005 diameter, because the SPR can design requires to have a collar that bottoms out at the shoulder, 2.4 inches from the muzzle. My Surefire requires I think, 2.75 inches. What I am saying there is no industry standard for far the can slides over the barrel, some may not even require any. No big deal though.

Let me know if I could be of help.

I have an older AWC A-970 that works very nicely on my coyote rifle.

Now I'm in a quandry, . . .

What are the threads on an M1A, Loaded, from Springfield?

While I had not thought of it, . . . your suggestion to have one can for both weapon systems, . . . sounds like a great idea, . . .

How can that be done (and keep the can price below 1K$)?

May God bless,
Dwight

I agree. They work well, and are easily maintained.

Like I said, probably the least expensive. https://huntertownarms.com/rifle.php
Titanium tube and stainless baffles for 600 is a pretty good deal. All the popular manufactures ask much more for one made out of the same stuff...

dwight, what I did was buy a AAC7.62 SD with the 51T QD adapter which allows it to quickly be attached to an AAC Blackout, Brakeout, or Brake. They make those in different thread sizes for whatever gun you are putting them on; I put them on several guns from AR's, a bolt gun, and a M1A and can move the suppressor from gun to gun. AAC has some new stuff out as well, but Silencer Shop will have more up to date info than I do. I can't remember what the wonky M1A thread pitch is, but AAC does thread an Blackout flash hider for it.

Thanks from dwight55

Bamban is spot on. If you have multiple platforms to use it on, a .30 hAndles everything smaller.
You need to convert the pitch on the M1a with an adapter. It's a unique pitch.
It makes sense to buy the .30 if you have a few rifles that might utilize it.

Some people indicate there can be some blowback on the M1a when running supppresed.

I purchased the updated AAC 762-SD with the Inconel baffle stack. It is very durable. The 51T Flash Hider mounts are available in several calibers and can be found as low as $75. The 7.62mm / 51T, .595"-32 (M14/M1A)
is available from AAC for $99 plus shipping.
