I was somewhat amazed at the lack of useful neutral information out there about what to look for in a suppressor. Yes, I understand that it’s still a niche market compared to most other firearms markets, but the suppressor business is booming, even if suppressed guns aren’t.
My new article at Shooting Illustrated on what to look for in a suppressor should help you figure out what you want in a suppressor while we wait for Congress to collectively grow a set and make these safety devices easier to acquire.
And if you are waiting to buy a suppressor until the HPA or SHARE Act or some other law to pass that removes the tax stamp and paperwork makes it through Congress, don’t. Both of those bills have provisions for refunding the tax fees from the past few years, so if/when they pass, you’ll get your money back, and wait times for stamps are finally falling, with the possibility of them falling even more next year.
I also wrote something about the Deadfoot Arms folding buffer system, which is not a bad little gadget to have if you’re looking to shorten the overall length of your AR and still be able to shoot it.
Go read them.
