    AR15 Suppressors

    Any one got an Opinion on the DPT and Waitaki Suppressors?

    Looks like DPT is the lighter by 70 grams as Aluminium a bit longer and cheaper

    Waitaki being shorter, stainless steel, and a lil bit more expensive


    Any opinions of people who own them would be appriecated!!

    Have 2 Waitaki Cans, not quite as quiet as my original but for the money great value. I would buy another. I like their titanium ones but not at the price they are (8 hundy or so)

    had both - both work well, depends how many shots you plan shoot one after the other, if hunting the DPT will be fine, if service rifle matches the Waitaki
    Being over gunned is under rated.

    I got a Gen IV Hardy on my 300 AAC, very happy with it.

    It is further out the front than the "normal" ones.

    Makes the brass pretty dirty, tumblers are great things

    I have a DPT 30 cal on a 7.62x39 AR. Its not as quiet as a Reflex I have on a 308 but it is about 500 grams lighter and $300 cheaper so I am very happy with it. My gun doesn't overgas with it on either.

    I have a DPT modular can and my shooting mate has a Waitaki engeneering can, the difference is if you want to go high volume fire go the waitaki, as the DPT wont last under that treatment, the upside of the DPT is that it is lighter, and it means you have to show restraint and save bullets. I am tempted to get a waitaki aswell for when I do want to waste bullets and not wreck my super light weight can

    Or you can go best of both worlds with an ODL can - super light and designed to handle rough treatment.

    After trying Beavis' DPT one on my AR, I went for the same model.
    $200 is hard to beat.
    Balances well too.
