When using a suppressor on your project, there is always a lot of things to consider and one of those is whether or not to use a sized silencer or an adapter to couple a suppressor of a different thread to it.
We are always looking to make the dollars we have go a little further and adapting a silencer is an easy way to do that. Most suppressors on the market come in one thread pitch or mounting scheme. So adapting those silencers to guns that are setup differently can be a great way to not have to buy a second silencer.
We make quite a few adapters that can couple three primary types of suppressors with them being in one of the following categories.
- Direct Thread with a Common Thread Pitch
- Mount coupled (The silencer fits a specific mount/device that stays on the host weapon)
- Modular mounting designs specifically designed to be used with a large quantity of adapter.
An example of the first one would be our Amendment 7.62 suppressor. This silencer comes threaded 5/8-24 and this is not able to be changed. So we have an adapter that will couple it to 5.56mm rifles typically threaded 1/2-28. This adapter is called the Freedom Coupling and is available on the website.
The second one is really common in todays world and an example of one of these would be our Sovereign rifle silencer. It has a mounting scheme designed to fit a set of mounts that we make for it. It couples to a large diameter thread and breeches on a taper for positive engagement. This can easily be adapted to our Mystic X family of adapters with the Sovereign to Mystic Adapter.
The last category is by far our most popular. The modular mounting silencer family. This is a specific family of suppressors and mounts to make adapting the suppressor easy and fast for a plethora of different applications. These mounts are almost endless and couple our popular Mystic X to everything imaginable. We have so many adapters for this silencer, that we have to make multiple pages on the site to cover them all. These can also be used to couple many other suppressors on the market to various host firearms and they are also popular with the project builders in the community. So if oyu have a Form 1 build you are working on, we have the thread spec available to make the rear of your silencer fit our mounts seamlessly.
If you have any questions about adapting a silencer to a firearm, just give us a shout and we will be happy to help.
Until next time, keep your powder dry!
