Forum Input for Suppressors

Post by panzermk2 » 12 Jun 2010, 20:33

Guys I need your input. I get asked all the time what cans do and don't work with the 5.7x28. Now while I wold love to own and test every single suppressor out there it's just not going to happen.

So to that end could everyone who has a can that works please post the info here so I can put together a list. Please keep it to just posts about what works and with what ammo you have used.

I will be pruning since thread hi-jacking here is not just a sport it is a way of life.


To help clarify Dan freelienr suggested these additional criteria.



Just thinking it might be a good move to set a standard of terms for everyone to use since certain wording may be taken differently form another pov.

_Dan


rating system
1-a decent bang still in the report
2-loud "pop" report that overpowers the sound of the bolt slam
3-bolt slam audible, with a pop report
4-all you can hear is the bolt slam



Cans that work,
SWR Spectre........................................................rating 2-3
silencerco's Sparrow 22...........................................rating 2
Gemtech S-FN57...................................................rating 4
Gemtech M4-96D upgraded G-5 mount.........................rating 3
AAC M4-1000.......................................................rating 4
Liberty - Constitution...............................................rating 4

Cans that don't work
Knight M4 5.56 it may work great with M249 Machine guns and M4 but it's first set of baffles is to small causing a pressure spike with SS ammo popping the magazine out.

the can: silencerco's Sparrow 22
the ammo: Elite Ammunition's 10.5 Quietor



preformance:
definitely a deafened report, but still a decent bang. Good can for the 5.7 to shoot without ear protection. Best for a .22 round for optimum quietness.
if you're wanting to just hear the slam of your bolt, this is not the can for the 5.7 round. But it does unscrew and come in half, for very easy cleaning, good for 5.7 recreation shooting without ear protection.

*I'd rate it at a 1... maybe a 2

Gemtech S-FN57. Designed for the FiveseveN and used by me on the FsN. Works as advertised with everything I've thrown at it (which is everything commercially available or available on the secondary market - FN, EA, [Baca - now defunct])

Supersonic rounds are quieter with the can, muzzle blast is significantly reduced, and muzzle flash is essentially eliminated. Muzzle flip is also reduced and there are POI shifts.

Subsonic rounds are a must for quietest operation.
I never was thrilled with SB193 (inconsistent cycling of the action), and strongly prefer EA's FsN-tuned QuieTOR or my pet loads.

Hollywood quiet is achievable with primer-only pellet rounds. These will not cycle the action, but they sure are fun.

Even with primer-only hand-loads, the set-up is only truly silent if I keep my finger off of the trigger. (I don't, however, let the pursuit of perfection get in the way of "good enough.")

Other considerations:
Adjustable sights or a red dot sight are a must if you want POI to coincide with POA. The added height of the red dot is a boon for a clear sight picture.

I have an AAC M41K that will go on my PS90 after my SBR paperwork comes back. I also have a M42K but I'm leaving that on another rifle.

SWR Spectre is a great can for the IOM,USG.We just completed a silencer test July3rd 2010 and the Spectre was tested that day on an IOM with factory SS195.Results of the test(data)will be posted free to all on nfatalk.org under the review section.

There is a place that looks like it objectively evaluates cans. Here is the link below:

http://www.silencerresearch.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

There's freebies and a $30 subscription upgrade where the more recent reviews are done. He seems thorough.

Well, Jay I use my older Gemtech M4-96D with the upgraded G-5 mount on the SBR and I found it to be very good with both sub's and hi-velocity stuff. Although heavier it's a GREAT can.

On the 1 to 4 scale in the first post, what is the level of suppression?

I have an SWR spectre and have used it on my SBR PS90. It is hearing safe in my opinion. I haven't shot subsonic ammo so most of what you hear is the ballistic crack of the bullet. It is definitely alot more pleasant to shoot than unsuppressed. I just sent my five seven barrel off to be threaded so I don't have any experience with that as of yet. I would say the spectre would fall somewhere around a 2 or 3 on your scale. I've shot it into the ground in my back yard and no one called the cops. It would be hard to distinguish it as a gunshot except for the ballistic crack. It sounds similar to a pneumatic nail gun.
