    Suppressors, what recommendations do you all have?

    I am sick of scaring off every animal in the forest park so I am looking for a suppressor for my Rossi wizard single shot in .243. The barrel is not threaded so I will need to get both suppressor and threading done. Can anyone recommend a lower cost suppressor that will work well? I am new to hunting so cost is a consideration. Thanks chaps/chapets

    Reloaders have got ASE SL5 suppressors (can) on sale for $399 would be another great option. Very compact

    Yeah, MAE tend to get overlooked don't they? I have one also, an excellent highly efficient can if maybe a tad heavy.

    MAE probably focus more on their exporting. Found a complimentary reference to them in an overseas forum - MAE UK company website looks almost exactly the same as MAE NZ.

    MAE chases the UK market more than local. Have a couple, a bit heavier but do the job well.

    MAE if weight is not such a problem DPT or Gunworks if weight is an issue. I think the multiple stainless baffles in the MAE suppressors work better than the alloy ones.

    i tend to go for heavy stuff just my opinion but i find the heavier stuff tends to be a bit more robust and feels better quality to me

    I use Gunwork spartans and they work well. At about $300 plus threading so if the whole lot goes to Gunworks, that's $365 job done. Not as squat as the DPT, as they are narrower but come back over the barrel further making them slender. If you can find a Sonic, they are also in a similar price bracket and are very similar to the DPT style.

    Gunworks Ltd - 35mm 13.5" dia Spartan Suppressor 222 through to 30-06

    Some people (like me) are now looking for suppressors to just take the edge off the noise to preserve hearing but not really requiring quiet for avoiding game disturbance. Hence compromises to decibel reduction to achieve short overall gun length and light weight.
    For quietest shooting you should retain the full barrel length and don't be shy to use a big long suppressor (Gunworks pride themselves on maximum noise reduction but are bigger and heavier than many new competitors) and investigate whether a subsonic load is possible (not so easy I suppose for 243). Phone Gunworks (Robbie or Amanda) and DPT (Darren or else the Frenchman) and check which model might achieve your priorities. A change in powder or ammo type might result in less unburnt powder coming out te muzzle.

    If it's deer you're hunting then surely shooting one at a time is enough ? If you're taking more than one shot then some range time or a laser range finder might be better than a suppressor.

    I'm happy with my Sonic, nothing to compare it to though. But it definitely does its job.
