I am going to get a 7.62 suppressor for my new savage scout rifle.

A local shop has a Advanced Armament 762-SDN-6 which is nice and welded shut.


$200 cheaper and made here in Brunswick GA is a model that can be taken apart and different end caps used.


What do you think?

IMHO, you need to be able to take it apart and clean it on occasion.

Most real extreme-duty suppressors cannot be taken apart. It's NOT necessary per the manufacturers, from AAC, Surefire, Gemtech, etc.

I have the SDN-6 and it's a rock star. You would not be unhappy with it.

Brunswick...sigh. I miss that paper mill smell.

I would choose the SDN-6 over the Coastal. AAC uses much better alloys than the 4140 used by Coastal

The SDN-6 is a good can but my next 7.62 can will be the SilencerCo Omega. Maybe the Saker but probably the Omega

Or make your own? On form1?

I prefer the Specwar 762

I'm just coming around to appreciating the usefulness of a can, so this thread is appreciated. I'd be interested in both suggestions and also the reasons or specifics behind the preferences :beer:

I've built several for Form1s but they were for rimfire. The complexity goes up substantially for a centerfire. Alloys used, equipment needed, etc....

You can try a Form1 if you like. You'll so much money into it, the most expensive store bought can will be cheap by comparison.

If you insist on building your own, Silencertalk is the place to go. I would bet money any can you build will be overly heavy and burn out a lot quicker than a store bought can.
If you're a machinist with your own shop, it won't be near as expensive and you'll already know what alloys to use.
If you saw my shop, you'd shit your pants but I still don't build centerfire cans

I have a number of cans, both home shop made and store bought. I use cans on 22lr, 223, 300BLK sub-sonic and supersonic. Also use them on SBRs and 16" ARs
Also reload for 223 and 300BLK

If you have a question, I can probably answer it. PM me

I have a SpecWar 7.62
It's a great can, durable and quiet but it's long at 9". The weight isn't a problem as it's an 300BLK SBR with an 8.5" barrel.

Something you're not going to believe but a SpecWar 7.62 on a 14.5" SBR is much better handling than an AAC M4-2000 on a 16" AR

The center of gravity is further back. It's not nearly as front heavy as the 16"

I like making take apart cans.



Where you at in GA, Jon?

I have a coastal can for my Uzi, and it is fine. I rattled it over at Red Hill one year and they fixed it for a reasonable fee.

I have a form 1 at the local Sheriffs office and parts to build a 10" Titanium unit on the way. $500 for parts $110 for a die to press stainless steel baffles.



Spoke with ATF --- No manufacturing till form 1 comes back

SD Tactical are good folks to deal with

Jon, let us know how your Form 1 can goes. I'm seriously considering going the same route to add to the stable.

Let me know if you need any help, Jon.

Form 1 sent on a Friday, check cashed the next Tuesday by ATF.

A little late to the conversation but I use YHM. I have never had any issues and they come apart for cleaning.

January 30, 2016, 22:18
They always cash the check's right away,but now you have a 6-8 month wait for the paperwork too come back.Form 1 sent on a Friday, check cashed the next Tuesday by ATF.
