    WT(Borrow) 30 cal suppressor

    Hi Guys,

    I'm in Christchurch for a month or so from next week and planning to get some hunting in with my mates there. I'm bringing my Rem700 308 with me from Aus and would dearly love to buy/borrow/rent a suppressor for it if anyone in the Canterbury area can help me out?

    I can buy a new one but that seems overkill for a couple of weeks only so hoping someone has one they can loan me or sell second hand as I obviously cannot bring it home with me afterwards.

    My rem has a heavy barrel so probably easier to source a can style instead of an overbarrel one. Thread is 5/8 x 24 but I can easily knock up a converter as I think most of the Kiwi built suppressors seem to be 1/2x20 threads.

    I have an empty suitcase on the way over so happy to fill it with duty free scotch in return for the loan of one

    Cheers

    Be a few guys with AR10 suppressors floating around with the 5/8 x 24 thread required.
    I'm going to get one when I build up a DPMS parts (mainly) AR10... when/if the import permit ever arrives.

    Yeah I'm sure it has! Simply not worth the aggravation that a conviction would cause though so this is strictly an NZ only prospect. Rog Spackman has agreed to build me a can with a 5/8 thread on one end and a 1/2 thread on the other so I can use it on my 308 and my 22 (albeit at reduced efficiency). I'll pop it up on here for sale early next year once I am finished with it
