    I have had a Gen 6 and it was a good suppressor. The combo price is good, however it is over priced if buying by itself. I have changed out all my Hardy/DPT for A Tec suppressors through Stager sports. they are a seriously good unit and much quieter.

    +1 for the A-Tec. I have a Carbon 2 on a .243 which is very quiet and lightweight. Expensive though, and not really for use at the range as you cannot get it too hot.

    I don’t know anything of the 100 XT, but I have a Sauer 202 Elegance in .25-06 and a Blaser R8 .243. The Blaser is a much more accurate rifle.

    The Sauer is good and accurate for the first couple of shots, but as the barrel gets hot it is not as accurate. Perfectly fine for deer hunting, but not impressive at the range.

    Whereas the R8 doesn’t stray with a hot barrel but is limited by how hot the Carbon fibre shell of the suppressor can get - if it gets too hot it is knackered. Perfect for hunting, but have to wait for it to cool a lot at the range.

    +1 for the Gen 6. Have one on a 358Win 20" barrel. Definitely better than what my mates have on their 7M08 & 223 even with the larger hole.

    Also have a Gen 5 Stealth on 243 & 223. Would buy again.
    The older gen 4's that had the extra ports out the front that tended to direct sound/gas sideways which lead to them sounding louder to the shooter (But possibly gave a more confused sound signature to whatever was down range)
