View Full Version : My favorite suppressed rifle...

April 19, 2011, 14:08
This was my first suppressed rifle and remains one of my favorites today. The host is a Ruger Mk 77in .308, the can is a Ciener, this was put together in the early eighties. The system is both elegant and effective, in civilian mode the rifle looks like a pretty standard heavy barrel .308 and when wearing the can it is old school classic with the length of the suppressor giving it that look. With subsonic ammo it is one of the quietest centerfire rifles I have heard. With super sonic it still performs very well, even with the sonic crack. If your are down range of it it is very difficult to determine the direction the shot came from.


The barrel is threaded with a long shroud for the thread protector. When the shroud is in place the seam in nearly invisible. The quality of the workmanship is impeccable.



Here is a brief video of the rifle in action with my sub sonic loads.

At some point in time a baffle got damaged so it is running one baffle short with a spacer filling in. The small, light suppressors are all the rage today but the old school cans like this Ciener really deliver the goods. This can is also easily dissembled for cleaning as well.

I have a very similar 80's Ceiner can on my Uzi. The baffles in mine look identical to yours. It works surprisingly well for how old it is. I rarely shoot the gun without it.

On the EBR's the newer cans look ok but the classic look of the long can on a bolt gun is timeless. Same can be said for the longer cans on the UZI's and MAC's. I also think they are more effective. The trend today is towards light and short, often requiring them to be run wet to be really effective. I have a 9mm can that when run dry just doesn't provide much reduction at all.

Can you guys point me to a manufacturer making this style of "over the barrel" cans? I would really like to put something like this on my l1a1.

David at LibertyCans makes good stuff and much of it is custom.
