If you didnt want an integral 300 blackout suppressor then what would you choose? Well, the list here is quite lengthy but we can trim it down to three options.
Option 1 – Multi Purpose Suppressor
Something in this category would be like the Mystic X or if you need light weight, the Infiniti X silencers. These silencers are a perfect match to the job of suppressing the 300 blackout. When a first time buyer is looking to get their first suppressor, whether it be a 300 blackout suppressor or even a 22lr suppressor, the multipurpose suppressor is what we recommend. This is because it gives the end user a lot of options and they are able to use this silencer on a plethora of host weapons to see what they really enjoy the most. This then arms them with the information they need to make an informed decision on their next purchase, because we all know that they will get another one…lol.
Option 2 – Dedicated 300 Blackout Suppressor
When it comes to options for a silencer to hush the 300 blackout cartridge, the first choice is always a muzzle can. The Sovereign silencer is a wonderful choice for a 300 blackout suppressor because of this and the fact that it is a 30 caliber silencer. The dedicated rifle silencer will always perform better than a multi purpose suppressor as it has been tuned for the application of 30 caliber cartridges. So if you are either planning on only shooting rifle cartridges or just 300 blackout then a nice rifle silencer like the Sovereign would be a great choice. This is more specialized than the multi purpose suppressor, but it will perform better all around.
Option 3 – Integral / Custom builds
The third option here today and my personal favorite though is the integral suppressor. Nothing and I mean nothing can compare to this 300 blackout suppressor. When the absolute best suppression performance is needed then you look no further than the Leonidas Gen 2 integral AR15 upper assembly. This is because the whole upper is a tuned system that works specifically with the 300 blackout cartridge. If you have never fired this 300 blackout suppressor, then you are missing out. The tone, accuracy and low back pressure design is the culmination of almost a decade of suppressor design in this specific caliber. Even the first generation of this design was a phenomenal leap forward in silencer design with the integrated gas block inside of the silencer to capture any gas leaking from this part of the high pressure gas circuit. What’s more, the Leonidas Gen 2 now has been redesigned to be shorter, lighter and quieter than the previous version. The extensive use to titanium in the construction of the silencer makes this possible. We also use a very specific upper receiver design that allows for less stacking tolerance and a free floated barrel/suppressor module, thereby increasing accuracy.
So of these three choices, which one appeals to you more? Normally the end user will start with a multi purpose suppressor then move to dedicated caliber specific muzzle mounted silencers and finally they will add in some integrally suppressed systems or even custom builds. So where are you on your silencer journey? Let us know in the comments and what custom or new integral would you like to see next? Until next time, keep your powder.
