I have an Omega 300 which gets used on both my 10.5" .300AAC, and my 12" 6.5 Grendel - no issues / no complaints.

Dead Air Sandman Ti is now my favorite 30 caliber can. Direct thread, not welded closed and I can screw on a 5.56 endcap for that use too.

But, but, Buzz said they are the best...

I've seen two SilencerCo Omegas go down range. They made it right both times, because their QD was at fault.

You can find issues with all brands....

https://www.ar15.com/forums/Armory/Crux-suppressors/20-487765/

I own several different brands and only had problem with one and it was taken care of. I will say I have shot more different TBs than other brands and have not had any problem so far.

Ive shot 1000s if rounds through my YHM on several different platforms and calibers all QD mounts and it has never even loosened. Now I have sent a suppressor cover down range before.

Was it quiet when it hit the ground?

I've had an AAC SDN6 for about 10 years and a Silencerco Harvester since they came out (5 years?). Both are great. I use the Harvester a lot more just because it is lighter.


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.

I used to think so when I first got into cans..
My position has changed where I think taper mount is better:

Provides a consistent lockup up for accuracy
The don't loosen like a direct thread can
More mounting options for different rifles

I just don't see the extra 100 bucks per gun for each taper mount is worth the money.

I own three Q suppressors and one from Rugged. All things considered the Q suppressors are my favorite.

I think it's well worth it for a cry once lifetime purchase. Also enables you to buy one 30 caliber can that you can fit on multiple barrel profile and caliber sizes. Or would you rather buy another can for the fit?

What 30 cal can can you buy that you can just screw on multiple caliber and barrel profile sizes?

As long as your gun has the meat to be 5/8 thread youre good.

The thread size is not the only requirement. You could have a smaller barrel diameter with the same thread count and it's not going to fit.

I'm new to game and purchased a sig srd7.62 qd( 17 month wait) with 4 different mounts one half inch and three 5/8 locked em down with rockset and have mounted the can numerous times on the qd.
Its considerably more quiet and has improved the accuracy on both my grendels 1 ar and 1 bolt. It has done well with my creed as well. Still working on my 223 I have an adjustable gas block coming
for it.

That doesn't even make sense 5/8-24 is 5/8-24.

Ok then I will explain: I have a .308 with the same thread count but a larger barrel profile(diameter) than my 6.8. The can would not fit both barrel profiles unless I added the wedge/brake made to fit the 6.8 barrel profile and the brake/wedge is made thicker or wider to accept the 30 cal can.

Unless your can comes past the shoulder back over the barrel, that still doesn't make any sense. As long as there is enough barrel to shoulder against the can on both rifles, you should be good to go.

Your "as long as their is enough barrel" is the answer to your question. There are many different barrel profiles that are thicker in diameter than others. My 6.8 and 6.5 CM are thinner profile barrels that would not fit my 30 cal can without the wedge/brake.

So basically you have pencil thin barrels that aren't large enough to be threaded 5/8-24. I can see the use of a adapter for that application.
