OK, now this seems obvious, but let me explain, a 308 suppressor is something of an anomaly these days.
You can get silencers in all kinds of flavors these days in all sorts of metals and finishes. But which ones are really best suited for your 308 Winchester rifle? Well, let’s take a look at a couple of viable options today.
The first option is the obvious one. The Sovereign silencer is a 7.62mm suppressor designed for rifle use. Just the other day we were shooting a Sovereign silencer on a 7mm Remington Magnum rifle and it worked flawlessly. The combination of titanium tube and core makes this silencer light weight and a perfect fit for your 308 suppressor needs. It has a ton of features like the interchangeable from plates that even include a muzzle brake cap design. The rear is also a adapter design allowing the use of several different interchangeable mounts to allow fitment to 1/2-28 threaded rifles, 5/8-24 threaded rifles and we also have muzzle brakes and flash suppressor mounts that fit it as well.
The next choice that is readily available and works really well is the Amendment 7.62mm silencer. This 308 suppressor is designed from the ground up for the 7.62mm bullet at rifle power levels. This includes many calibers other than 308 Winchester, but it is a great option for this round. The Amendment is also very economical coming in at almost half the cost of the Sovereign silencer. This is because we eliminated everything from the design that isnt absolutely needed for it to function. So it only have the 5/8-24 threaded socket on the end and this is made into the silencer. Honestly, a 308 suppressor is almost always going to be attached with this thread anyway so that is why we chose it for the Amendment silencer. It also doesn’t have any of the interchangeable features of the Sovereign suppressor. This eliminates so many machining operations and time that the cost is dramatically reduced. Sound performance is still really good though so even though you are sacrificing several features, this is one that is not being sacrificed. To be honest about it, the Sovereign is still a little quieter, but if cost is an issue, this one gets you 90% of the performance for 50% of the price.
Once last option for a 308 suppressor is a Mystic X multi purpose silencer, this is because it is considered the best multi caliber suppressor out there by many. It performs rather well on rifle calibers and has a plethora of mounts to choose from so it is easy to adapt it to your rifle. Oddball threads? No problem here, need a suppressor cover? We got you fam. This thing isnt called the sis army knife of silencers for nothing. So if you want versatility more than anything else, then the Mystic X will be your choice. It gives you so much versatility that it sometimes overwhelms the user with options… Dont worry though, if you need advice on a setup, just give us a call and we will be happy to help you sort out the problems.
So there you have it, three different 308 suppressor options that you might or might not have considered and if you need assistance, like I said earlier, just give us a call or shoot us an email, we will be happy to help. Until next time, keep your powder dry!
