    Advice? Just PM Friwi. Very helpful and knowledgeable b'stard. Probably because he works at DPT. Need a hip replacement? Do you operate on yourself. Save yourself some grief. Get the best advice. 2C.

    Ffs, I don’t know what some of you do with your suppressors to go through so many. Pest control work on goats,pigs,deer,etc, suppressors are good for 5000 rounds or so. The suppressor wore out/carboned-up about the same time as a Ranger/CJA AR15 or the barrel got worn on other rifles. I guess punching paper or targets is a bit harder on them but seriously, over a dozen Hardy’s plus others. I’ve used Wairau cans and Gunworks over barrel with no problems. Used Sonic 45 & 35, they work but not so impressed. Guess I’ll stick with what I know works for me, Gunworks or Waitaki Engineering. As an aside, if you think ones a bit heavyweight do some feckin weight training, a slightly muzzle heavy rifle never hurt.

    My 2 cents worth. I've tried several, Gunworks, DPT, Maniatis, Ghost, Hardy Compact, Hardy Stealth and MAE, I rate them for noise suppression in this order:
    Hardy Stealth.....quietest of the lot, longer in front but that's where the suppression comes from, no free lunches.
    Gunworks........quiet, cheaper than the Stealth above, again longer in front but worth it, as above.
    Maniatis... light, good suppression but not as quiet as the above.
    DPT....depends on how many baffles you use and at $50 per baffle how far do you go, tried 6 baffles, still not as quiet as the Hardy Stealth or Gunworks.
    Hardy Compact and Ghost, nope, noisy compared to the rest.
    That's how I found them, only Hardy Stealths and Gunworks in my cupboard these days.
