    Potential new suppressor

    Looking at getting my a-bolt 270 threaded for an overbarrel suppressor.

    Just from the websites im leaning towards gunworks but the other option im looking at is hardys.

    From other threads im gathering gunworks are the better option, so whats the price difference between the spartan and standard models?
    Learn to close that ******* bolt quietly!!!

    And weight, and size.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Depends how much $$ you have i guess. But DPT duralium over barrels are 335 grams and only $370 verses HRE at 290 grams and $555.

    HRE is shorter and fatter

    Duralium DPT 308/243 over barrel Rifle Suppressor - DPT Machinists

    Gen 4 Suppressor - Standard calibres - Rifle Suppressors - Suppressors

    Gunworks Ltd - Lightweight with Aluminium Internal Muzzlebrake; 1/2 X 20 UNF Thread for .223

    Would be interesting to do a side by side on the same gun/cal

    Here's a DPT modular over barrel on my 243, with one baffle out. Light and short. Moderation is adequate.
    Only negative is that its not suitable for high volume fire, otherwise great in every respect.

    Plus fitting for the dtp.

    Dan is great to deal with an cans are well made, to me he is the leader in cans. Spent the last couple hours fittings them up. The new ones now have nice logo etc on them its a nice touch.
