Okay, I have been a bit indecisive as to what I am going to purchase, part of that is due to lack of a big budget. I have to keep reminding myself that eventually, I do plan on moving (currently Dallas Co) and at that point, I can hopefully purchase additional suppressors.

Quick facts:
My budget is $1220 including stamp(s)

I have pricing on the Harvester 30($565OTD), the Octane 45 ($660OTD) and the AAC Ti-Rant is ($670OTD) not including stamps. However, I really would like to get the most fun out of it as I do not hunt nor do I shoot competitively, all for fun.

With that said I have taken ya'lls advice and started looking into the Sparrow ($379OTD) and integral barrels, specifically for the 10/22 as the more I read, .22 rimfire is one of the most fun rounds to suppress.

Huntertown has a Fusion T22 that is pretty cool, they will also let you send the unit back to have it re-chambered in any caliber you want assuming it is a rim fire cartridge. Then there are YHM, Thompson Machine...etc

I am overwhelmed with ideas and a limited budget which is making this decision more difficult than necessary. I REALLY want a .30 can though only because I think they are pretty cool, I don’t hunt right now so this would be for paper punching which leads me back to the 10/22, I just love the "Hollywood" quiet they offer.

I need some help; I am going mad over here...

I am basically in the same boat as you. However I have narrowed my choices down to 2 solid 7.62 cans and 1 on the fence. In order of consideration.

YHM Phantom LT
YHM Phantom Ti
AAC 762-SD

Two .22 cans I'm looking at are:
AAC Pilot 2
YHM Stinger

My factors are cost, weight, decibel reduction.

I've got a silencerco specwar 7.62 and silencerco warlock II for the .22 on order. Both had solid reviews and for the price couldn't be beat.

not really, I've Factored them all together with more thought towards cost verses weight and decibel reduction.

So the Phantom LT is 20oz with a 35db reduction for less than $600.

Do not get sucked into comparing DB ratings as there is no official standard and the better companies don't even bother publicizing them.

There really needs to be an NFA sub-topic.

Agree


I decided to go with the sparrow and a harvester 30. I watched a video of the sparrow on a 15-22 and a mark ii FV-SR-sr and now I want one...and the Mark ii FV-SR, lol.

Now to get my tikka threaded.

I just ordered a silencer co specter ii, i almost went with the sparrow, but read online about how some people didn't like the first round pop, so i decided against the sparrow. I have a element 2, love it but a little harder to clean. They come with a pusher that pushes baffles out for much easier cleaning. My main thing was finding a rimfire suppressor that had no or very little first round pop! Now my centerfire suppressors, i go for light, as my rifles are heavy enough, but light is almost always more $$$. My centerfire suppressors are a yhm phantom and a yhm phantom titanium. They seem very solid, nice suppressors for the money. The regular phantom is very heavy, i could drive nails with it and not hurt it.

That's what my brother and I both bought after much research and the clincher was the unanimous recommendation from 3 guys at the Silencer Shop for it.

Just received my can from jail. Looking at around when you ordered, I purchased my AAC 762SDN in April and submitted via Eform. This was when the Eform for form 4s was locked so SilencerShop asked if I wanted to just submit as a Paper Form. I ended up doing that and the check was cashed on June 2nd. Form 4 was approved and stamp received on Oct 2. Drove down to Austin and picked her up yesterday and wanting to load up some Subs and see what she can do.
