    can on a finnlite

    i have never used a can on a rifle or ever shot one with with a suppressor. i am thinking about getting one put on my sako finnlite. DO you think it would be worth doing. i was thinking dan hardy gen 4 short but fat! what do you guys think?

    My mate had his new Dan Can at the range over the weekend and I found it bloody awesome. I have a Gunworks and A-Tec and the DanCan was better than both, and smaller...

    DH are a little tubbier because that's what it takes to make a more effective suppressor. Form follows function. Haven t heard a single complaint yet

    They are also wider because they dont go as far foward of the muzzle as other cans only 100mm if i recall

    I have a gunworks can on my 243 sako 75 hunter. - just like the finlight except not fluited
    I will never not have a can for my main hunting rifle.
    look into shortening the barrel to maintain the ballance. without it they are quite long and awkward shortened they are not too bad

    It will not point as fast or as well after you suppress it, that is just fact.

    it is not movie quiet or like a subsonic 22 it still cracks but dosent boom.
    if you use alot of bullets thru it it is worthwhile Ie i have suppressed my 308,223 243 but not my 280 because i dont use it that much and it needs to be light so i can climb with it easily

    Don't do it! Get a poxy rem or Tikka and suppress that.

    Gunworks just did my 75 finnlite. Suppressor come back to within half inch of stock, so still same length barrel. Just had a bark at the range and have to say I like it.

    Have a Dan Can on our 243 75 fluted. Make sure your can is cleared by your rings i.e. not too low rings. Everyone is raving about DPT but waving to one of those Ti cans i.e. weight and noise reduction.

    Dpt is easily the cheapest on the market and from what ive seen of them every bit as good as the competition
