    DPT SUPPRESSOR

    Every one says buy a dpt buy a dpt.
    So what makes them better then the rest. (only other brand i will buy is gunworks)
    Want be removing baffles for bush stalking.
    DPT vs Gunworks ??
    currently running a gunworks ten year old can sits in front of muzzle 5" approx 12.5" long 35mmdia. was going to get gun re threaded and crowned. so thought it might be time to up grade to a more compact suppressor

    DPT suppressors are generally one of the lighter suppressors around, they work well and as you say you can add or remove baffles and their good value too. Gunworks are good, a fraction heavier but I believe they will make them whatever length you want, you can go for the thicker suppressor too if you want a shorter can.

    They are light weight, they work very well, you have the option of adding extra baffles (or removing them) and the price point is right. And the owner of the business is a reasonable fella to deal with, unlike some other north island manufacturers.

    @GWH would you get the s/s blast baffle to give it extra life?

    I have several Dpt suppressors. That I swap around between various rifles, with my 7mm baffles getting used on 3 different 7mm rifles, a 22" 7mm saum a 15" 7mm08 and a 17" 284win all loaded hot so the first baffle does get a hard time. I don't have a SS baffle but prob should get one. Id say I shoot more than most.

    Being able to just have a couple of baffles on for bush stuff, versus screwing another couple on for a magnum must be pretty handy. Also, if you shoot 223 on a 1/2x28tpi thread and want to use the guts of the can on a 1/2x20 22lr, all you need is the appropriate threaded bit and you're away. Or, you have a couple of 22 sized baffles and bulk the can up with 2 or 3 6.5mm baffles. Makes a fair amount of sense. I personally don't own one (already had what I needed before I'd laid eyes on a DPT), but I've seen this with @stretch's one, and it's quite a neat solution. If I didn't have any, and had to buy cans for a couple of rifles, DPT is definitely the way I'd go

    For me, DPT is the sweet-spot compromise between weight, price, effectiveness etc. I use the SS baffle because I have seen the wear on baffles not protected by one.

    I have one on my AR and it handles semi-auto fire. DPT specifies maximum rates of fire, but I haven’t had an issue. No mag dumps, just culling mobs of goats.

    The article in R&R is a very good read and objective test comparison of lots of suppressor options. If you’re in the market for a one then worth getting your hands on the mag and have a good study. There are heaps of options. Myself I have a few DPTs and Gunworks, and I rate the DPTs. Another option to consider is the ASE cans, they’re slightly heavier but steel and very compact, only 100mm past muzzle. If you’re going to put a lot of rounds thru the cans, especially rapid fire then the ASE is worth considering. I have one on my 7mm08 bush pig.

    I have both DPT and Gunworks.
    Both are good, but DPT’s just a Fraction better
    And Darren’s great to deal with.

    I've mag dumped a number of times with a dpt on sn AR shooting goats and never an issue. My hardys gen5 works well too very quiet but a bit more $$$

    And if I want to get silly, I can take the baffle stack off my 30cal DPT and add it to my 223 DPT. Just don't do it the other way around.

    MY $0.02C,
    My first suppressor was a Gunworks for my 7mm RM, i still have it and was a 2011 model 41mm diameter and i believe full Stainless Steel as it is heavy, more than 500grams for sure. I then bought a 223 bolt action and i bought then a DPT old school, all SS and i regret sell that rifle and suppressor, it was great. Bought a 7-08 and it had a DPT modular… wow, good noise reduction and weight amazing, bought another 7mm RM and it came with a Hushpower suppressor, wow, that was light too but i had few issues with the thing, still do a great job. Later on i bought an AR15 and because i was interested in shoot goats without the round counting i bout a MAE SS suppressor to suit it, heavier, noisier and personally didn't fit my needs, so i sold and bought another DPT… since then i bought another 3 DPT suppressors, 2 for 2 creedmoor and 1 for my 243… don't regret a bit… I have see and shot with the A-Tec suppressors and they are the "chisels", i saw Hardy suppressors in action too and they are amazing, however what these suppressors brand and others DONT have in common is "PRICE"! some will work brilliantly but will cost you quiet a bit of money, other will work brilliantly too but for a reasonable fraction of the price of others.
    Some suppressors have in their material the big pros and cons such as, some will hold more heat than other and then some will soon down faster than others, material wear will be to consider and how much firing you do and how much mirage will affect your shooting…

    Resuming, many options and many utilities, may one work for many rifles may you need to have one for each specific rifle… your budget will "guide" you… In the end of the day it is all about money… Oh, in the end of the day is also night!!!
