.30 Caliber Supressors

Recommended Posts

I am considering getting a .30 cal can for one of my hunting rifles.  Before I buy one I would like to test fire the rifle with and without the can.  I want to make sure there is enough of a reduction to justify the cost.  Anybody in the Nashville area have one and wouldn't mind me tagging along the next time they go shoot?

 

I am thinking about putting one on one of these two Kimber rifles.

You're welcome to shoot mine anytime.

What's the thread pitch on those Kimbers?

Not sure on the thread pitch.  Is there an easy way to determine thread pitch?

It's probably listed in the manual somewhere.  Typically I'd say it's 5/8x24 on a .30 cal.  But, that might not be a fair assumption on a Kimber. I know they did some in 7/16x28.

It’ll be enough to shoot with out hearing protection but that’s about it unless you go sub sonic but then you may run into bullet expansion issues. I hunt with my 6.8 AR suppressed 100% of the time due to the likleyhood of multiple shots on hogs but it’s an sbr and is balanced nicely with an OAL barrel length of about 17”. That short kimber may balance and Not feel awkward which maybe the ticket but definitely smart to try before you buy. 

I tried it and decided to wear hear pro when I go with my bolt guns

I have a couple 30 cal suppressors, you are welcome to come with me and shoot some.   I have some pistol suppressors and a MG.  Bring some 9 or 45 an you can shoot the MG as much as you want :)

It was going to be for a hunting rifle. After seeing what I would have to invest for a good can I decided it was not worth it for something I was only going to shoot a couple times a year.   Decided to just put that money towards another gun.

I hear ya...I got a TiRant45m and its pretty cool but honestly since im not a hunter a 30cal can would probably just collect dust for me too....I wouldn't mind dabbling in hog hunting with my KS47...but that's what ear protection is for, right?

      In today’s entirely predictable outcomes, the ATF has begun arresting folks who bought Glock autosears off of Wish.com. How they didn’t see this coming from a mile away, I don’t know. If anyone reading this was dumb enough to make this mistake, I’d get on figuring out how to get rid of it in a way that the ATF might take mercy on you. At least do it for your dog’s sake

      I have a spare stripped upper to go with my TGO billet lower and have always intended to build an upper to match my 18” upper. For a couple of years now, I’ve gone back and forth as to whether I should do a 14.5” barrel with a pinned flash hider to avoid the cost and hassle, or go the SBR route and go with something like a 10.5” barrel.  
      Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve researched the process. Is it still a painful and time consuming process?

      There are a couple of new products but I'm going to focus on this one.   

      The AAC Jaeger 30.   MSRP $449.   Sounds awesome.   A very affordable can rated for 300 win mag and smaller.

      Everything sounds amazing until you get to that aluminum mono core.   I'm very curious how long that would last shooting 300 win mag through it.
