    Waitaki Engineering Suppressor

    .223 muzzle can, 135mm length, all-stainless, 350gms weight, 38mm diameter.



    L->R $20, Roedale Delta IV, Waitaki Engineering, failed "Stonefree"



    Welded rear end cap, nicely finished



    Rolled front end





    Will report back on performance/longevity when I get a chance/the inclination to go shoot

    I believe they should be able to be made for any standard centrefire calibre, would probably be slightly longer (150mm) however for an -08 sized case.

    Approx $400 I think.

    For more details you'd have to give Mark a call at Waitaki Engineering, (03) 434 3419

    Interesting. Wonder if they would hold up to being run hard on an AR. Might be tempted to get one for my 14.5" if they're any good.

    75 rounds through it, no failure. Got it way too hot to touch. Takes a lot of 'boom' out of the 14.5" .223

    I've had mine from Mark for a month or more now, I chose an overbarrel one as I wanted quietest possible.
    Put it on the Finn Light, it's fired exactly 59 rds, no problems, sure cuts the noise of a 120BT going out at 2900+.Spent the afternoon at the range firing 140gr Amax out of it.
    I posted a picture of it awhile ago in a thread someone started wanting to know about sako ring height
