    Sonic 35 suppressor

    Id been looking for a smaller suppressor for my 223 for a while. I like DPT but I don't see the point in using one that's designed to handle 60 gr of powder in an 06 case when I'm only using 25 in a 223.
    The Sonic 35 built in Denmark looked a likely contender.
    Its nice and compact and fits the light profile barrel on the S&L much better.

    The internals are stainless and every baffle has a stainless insert. It has a twist in the first baffle to help keep it tight on the barrel thread. I am using 4 which adds only 75mm to the barrel length.

    A pair of basic spanners is available to assist with maintenance.

    I liked it so bought another for the 243ai. Accuracy hasn't changed in either rifle. Fit and finish is very good. Took it for little walk over the weekend and it worked just fine.

    I have a Sonic 35 on my Sako Vixen 6x45, works great.

    I see the spanners in your photo - can you tell me where you got the Sonic spanners from - I bought my Sonic 35 second hand and it did not come with spanners, and some of my baffles are welded together.

    All the gear came from @faregame from Owl Optics https://owloptics.nz/ Good guy, great service.
    There was a syringe of grease as well.

    Reloaders supplies also have the spanners with a small tube of grease.

    I agree they are great suppressors, to my untrained ear they are every bit as good if not better than other brands I have been around at the same time.
