    Is "pretty much" mean that it will be needed on other calibers?

    I run a 30 caliber can on my .556 and it works great. With a 30 cal can I can use it on my hunting rifles too.

    Well that is the only thing I have planned for it, is that one AR. I could use on a 5.56 too.

    Since I don't have any 30 cal stuff, I prefer to stick the smaller 5.56 can, some of those 30 cals cans can get up there.

    If your wanting a light durable can, I'd take a close look at the silencerco Omega. You could get it in 30cal and still be lighter that most 556.

    OK - a note on ARs and suppressors.
    On a standard AR with a can you may experience lots of extra fumes in your face.
    Either a piston gun or an adjustable gas block is the cure.

    I have looked at the Omega but I going to wait to it has some more testing. It is light, but that is about all it has.

    The omega is also pretty short and from a trustworthy company. You can also change the end caps on the Omega. Silencerco will be releasing a 5.56 endcap for the suppressor. The biggest issue is that it's a brand new can and doesn't have much in the way of reviews yet.

    I would look at the YHM Ti 5.56 can at 12 oz it's quite a bit lighter and if you are not mounting on a SBR 18oz is going to suck at the end of a 16" barrel. Heavier suppressor will also have an more of an effect on POA POI shift.

    I would not buy a rifle suppressor that is able to be taken apart unless it was a 22. It's really not needed. If you look up AAC 51t wobble make sure you understand the complaints / concerns with the mounting system before purchasing. I have no personal experience with AAC other than what I have read. I do have experience with YHM, Surefire, SWR. I prefer my Surefire Mini to the YHM. I like the mounting system better and overall, I like the Surefire can better. But the YHM Ti cans are really nice.

    Also, form a Trust (really easy) and put the can in the Trust. If you have kids, family they can benefit from it as well. If you just register it to you, well then, it's just you.
