    7.62 - Thunderbeast or Surefire?

    I’m new to the suppressor arena but am considering these two.
    I would like a quick disconnect feature to go between my 5.56, 7.62 and future 6.8/6.5

    Which one would you choose and why?

    I would say a multi caliber suppressor is a good choice if size & weight are not your primary concern. If you are going to be hiking around with it and actually using it for anything other than range use, a dedicated suppressor would be a better choice. At first I had a multi caliber YHM 308. I found it to be to heavy and long on my AR platform, but great on my 308. Surefire is what I went with for my AR.

    My paperwork is in on a TB 30-P. Barrels on all rifles are now or will soon be threaded 5/8" X 24 so it will just screw on whatever I'm going to shoot. I'll be using if for my .260 Rem precision rifle, AR's, my .22LR trainer, and whatever else makes its way into the safe in the next six months.

    I chose the Thunderbeast because they are popular in my area and I've shot a number of them. Lots of good reports from users here, so it seemed a safe choice.

    Thunderbeast has a "group buy" going on until Dec 7, 2012 that gives you 10% off any of their suppressors. Works out to $109.50 off of the $1095 retail price on the 30P-1 if you are planning on buying soon. Here is a link:
    Thunder Beast Arms Corporation [TBAC] | Gb

    Pretty straight forward, sign in, print the confirmation number, take it to a dealer and save the money.:thumbup:
