Looking to buy a suppressor to use on multiple guns including my AR15 in 223 wylde, AR10 in 7-08, 700 in 30-06 and custom 6.5 creedmoor. Eventually I plan to have multiple cans more fit for specific purposes/gun but want a multipurpose can. I don't want something too long or too heavy so I'm thinking something in the 7" range. I'm really interested in the Thunderbeast 7 ultra. Also don't want QD but not direct thread so I can utilize a break/flash hider and screw on the suppressor. Appreciate any recommendations or thoughts on the Ultra 7.

Saker's like half a pound heavier than the Omega. If you're going for 30 cal, Omega is probably the way to go. ASR system is rock solid, and Silencerco is one of the best companies in the business. The Ultra 7 seems like a great can (even saving several ounces over the Omega), but comes in at a couple hundred more than the Omega.

If you've got the money and really want to prioritize weight over all else, the Ultra 7 is your choice. But for a few more ounces, you can save some money and (IIRC) get better suppression with the Omega.

The saker 762 is a little heavier than the omega because the saker 762 internals are welded instead of glued together like the omega. Saker 762 is rated full auto and built to take abuse. The omega is rated as a light to medium use suppressor.

If you'll go check out the silencer shop website they have demo videos showing the actual decibels on different silencers.

Not too concerned with full auto capabilities. I want the best possible db reduction and accuracy as this will mainly be for hunting and long range shooting.

The omega is full auto rated. It is apparent by your post that you do not have first hand experience with the omega. The internals are not glued together. The baffles are welded just like other cans. The titanium sleeve around the outside of the can is the only part that is glued in place. This saves weight without sacrificing performance or durability. This is an advancement in the industry that should be applauded, not a cheap out move or sacrifice.

Good job just regurgitating what the silencer shop website says by the way.

OP the omega is arguably the best .30 cal can going right now.

I have a SilencerCo Harvestor and I am very happy with it. It is built for the requirements you laid out.

Not QD and not direct thread... I'm not sure what else is out there. TBA Ultra 7 and the SilencerCo Omega are two of the top cans out right now. If it were me, I'd go with the Ultra 7.

All the reasons I went with the Omega. Just got in line this weekend. Now if I can just forget about it until I get the call...

I have a 30cb7 which was the predecessor to the ultra 5,7,9. It's the best precision can on the market. There are lots of cans that reduce sound well etc, but since you specifically said it will be used on multiple guns than repeatability is KEY. It's absolutely pointless to get a multiuse can if you have to rezero every time. I've never once had to rezero my AR, 308 or either creedmoor with my tbac.

Let me rephrase that, I've had 100% repeatability in my POI shift.
