    So Im planning on getting a silencer for my AR15 and my 308. I was planning on getting the ADVANCED ARMAMENT 762-SDN-6™. I have the link below. Any thoughts?

    Just plunked down my hard earned dollars for one yesterday at Curt's Discount Supply.
    One of the reason I picked it was they didn't have any other choices.
    Everything is back ordered.
    All of the reviews are great, so at least I didn't pick a dog.
    The 51 tooth flash hider adapters are around $150.00, so keep that in mind when selecting one of these.

    Good choice. I have a few AA products and they are all top-notch.
    Buy the mounts as soon as you can, they can be hard to find.

    This is waiting at curt's. less than 30 days to go.

    I chose it because of the versatility and the design and reputation for accuracy.

    Primarily for 308 precision rifle and 308 carbine.

    Will also be on an AR-15 with bushing.

    Call around before you purchase. My experience is that Curt's charges full MSRP, other shops may be lower.

    I gave Curt's my business, because I firmly believe they will still be there nine months from now.
    Some of the other places I called, didn't seem to be as rock solid as Curt's.

    They'll be there for sure! Of course, so will Dan-Dee Sales, JMW, Keith's, Santiam Buyers, etc. All I'm saying is that it pays to call around.

    Have fun. Sounds killler, but a silencer is a Hollywood term. James Bond movies. The correct name for it is a sound suppressor.

    I got a 762SDN6 as my second silencer (first was a 45 osprey). It's a good choice, but there are also other good choices as people pointed out. The SDN6 is a hard-use can and will last a loong time.

    Actually it is a legal term. From 18 U.S.C. § 921 : US Code - Section 921: Definitions
    People who laugh at Hollywood and James Bond know the correct legal term is silencer or muffler.

    People correcting people saying silencer is worse than correcting on CLIPS vs magazines. The original inventor called it a silencer and so does the ATF on the form you fill to get the tax stamp to own one.

    Anyone who has heard a weapon with a silencer fired knows they are not SILENT.

    suppressed subsonic 22lr in a bolt action comes pretty darn close :)

    The name Suppressor always made more sense to me vs Silencer. They just make shooting so much more pleasant, but with the above exception, they don't 'silence' anything. Well, maybe those Aquila primer-only 22lr rounds also. 500fps so like an air gun.

    suppressors are also super effective muzzle brakes.

    silencer is the legal / marketing term, suppressor is the engineering / scientific term.

    lawyers and marketers aren't engineers, and have little understanding of science.
