Been looking at suppressors the last few months trying to decide which route to go.. Brother got a Specwar762 late last year & has been very pleased with it but that's the extent of my experience with them.. A friend of mine sent me a link to the '$100 suppressor' thread on AR-15.com & said he's built 3 of them w/ no problem.. All above board, has all the appropriate stamps, etc.. He's offered to help me put a couple together but I'm wondering about how they compare to commercially produced suppressors.. The intrigue for me is being able to build 3 (said his actually cost around $200-$250 each) for roughly the cost of one commercial can..
Appreciate any thoughts/experience on the subject..

Diversified Machine has full kits with almost everything done so you can build one. I think all you need is a drill press (or a drill and a steady hand to finish drilling the holes for it. Even offer a MAAD or YHM mounts if you already have those. Good prices too. http://diversifiedmachine.info/
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.
