It's worth reading the link above, but the short answer is that a suppressor by itself reduces recoil by adding additional weight to the rifle at a location that's very helpful. Now, many suppressors can be mounted on attachments that have real brakes themselves. In that case you have both the benefit of the brake and the additional weight at a helpful location. That's the best of both worlds, at least I think so. I have a Griffin Armament Sportsman DT on a .30-06 and it's great, but it's nothing like my Griffin Armament Precision Hunter over a brake on my .338 LM, which takes a light .338 LM and makes it feel like a .308.

Absolutely. Recoil is reduced from the extra weight on the end of the rifle and from controlling the blast from the end of the barrel. I have noticed a reduction in recoil in everything from a .45 ACP up to a 7mm Rem Mag.
It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.
If you use two same model silencers on a single rifle, does POI change? I've been keeping my silencers to the specific rifles I sighted in with. I plan to do a test in the future. Or I could just test it on hogs
My Omega silencers have ports/integrated anchor brakes.
+1 Even though I already have one in jail I want to see an actual review on it! I know Silencer Shop is putting out a video on it soon though. This waiting is just brutal...
this is best I have found, but was pre production
Ya, I've seen a couple but I need to experience my suppressor vicariously through reviews until it gets out of jail so I need more! Also none of them really measured DB's. It's also nice to get different people opinions on it.
