I got to shoot a 12 ga today at a buddies gun store in new Braunfels/mcqueeny. We shot a 870 tactical w a silencer co 12 ga suppressor. The thing is light and quiet! I kinda want one now. Thinking about a new model browning a5 w the silencer co 12 ga suppressor. I see a new duck slaying gun in my future for this coming season.

How does it attach? You've got choke threads on the inside.

Go all out. Get a 50 cal.


Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched? Because if you do, I'll stop doing it.

The suppressor is made by silencer co. It's called the salvo.

Pervis,
Any info related to if subsonic loads required? Any issues cycling semi autos? Any shotgun type preferences that work better with it over others?

Can you legally hunt migratory birds with a silencer?

I should have one approved any day now. Going on an 870 barrel cut to 18" and rethreaded. Subsonic loads are not required but they should help a lot. I havent been able to locate a factory load thats subsonic yet. May have to try to load one. Thinking 1.5 ounce of 2s at 1000fps should work well. Really looking forward to being able to hunt spots without drawing the usual attention.

Why would it be illegal?

My cousin brought his fully automatic silinced ar15 to the ranch. It was fun until you realized that with every trigger pull you don't want to let go of the trigger. So a 30 round mag at 15 bucks a mag goes in about a second. So I don't like that to start with, Then to top that off, the weight of the can way out front is not comfortable at all.

The salvo can isn't like most cans where they add alot of unwanted weight. It's light. Silencer co has made alot of improvements in reducing weight of cans. I do agree I shot alot of suppressed guns years ago and the cans were heavy on the end. The new cans coming out are not that way at all. Yeah I'd get one too to hunt places w o all the unwanted attention.

I'm not too sure about subsonic loads but I ca N tell you from personal experience it's light and quiet. The first shot has some noise, but once the gas builds from the first shot in the can it's crazy quiet. We only shot it off a pump. Next time we re gona put it on a semi auto. My reaction was the first shot was what I expected then my buddy shot it again while I was standing and listening and I was like whoa that's quiet. No bang no loud noise and you don't need hearing protection. If you can afford one it's a fun toy that's for sure.

It first became legal for game animals in TX in 2012. Oklahoma unfortunately it is not legal for public land, only by landowners and guests on private land. There is supposed to be a new Bill introduced in OK that would legalize for public. Hoping it is not like their open carry law which excludes non residents. Louisiana only recently legalized it as well.

I'm still curious about sound difference between normal vs subsonic loads. There is no regular commercial steel subsonic loads I know of. Federal makes an affordable lead subsonic field load. And more input for semi autos. I know the metro can cause problems for them. I have been interested in one of these salvos and I do have a metro barrel that I have still not used. Have not got around to buying a pump gun to dedicate to it.

Pervis, any sighting, point of aim, accuracy issues?

No no sighting point of accuracy issues. The can is designed like a hexagon sort of or rectangle you would have to see one to know what I'm talking about. The majority of the bulk of the can is lower than your barrel or offset below the barrel. If I bought one it would go on a semi not a pump. We only played w it for just a few minutes. We took turns shooting it for about 10 rounds.

Not sure on shotguns but the sound difference between normal loads and subsonic loads out of 7.62 with a suppressor is significant.

1000 fps is pretty darn slow compared to most factory loads. not saying that it's necessarily a bad thing, just that you'd have to really adjust your swing.

Remington will come out this year with a semi that will fit the metrobarel and will cycle federal metrofield load. Unfortunately lead.
Steel is still too fast to suppress the noice.
Anything above 1000 fps is gonna be too loud.
You can buy subsonic duckload, but very expensive.
Contact brezny at my signature for that
