Suppressed 243 Win AR

Recommended Posts

Posted a while ago my 243 upper build, finally got my crap together and got a suppressor for it, had a play this afternoon, most happy

Suppressor is a DPT modular unit, you can add or remove the end baffle sections to suit your application, weighs 8 oz. is 8" long and 1.625" in dia, 4 inches is over barrel and the rest, (basically all the baffle sections) in front of the muzzle so it doesn't add too much to overall length. The over barrel section is sleeved so the gases in the rear section don't come into contact with the barrel.

Made in New Zealand, cost me $350 NZ, ($240 US).

Short video link at under the bottom pic, enjoy:thumbup:

Damn I wish you I could send you guys these things.

Suppressors have gotten a lot cheaper here over the last year or so, there are lots of manufacturers all competing, coupled with the manufacturers tooling up with CNC centres has upped the production rate and reduced the costs.

I think the prices you guys pay will come down once/if your law makers see sense and stop being so F..ing juvenile.

Fukin legislators only care about what in it for them. Pigs will fly before that changes.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here but FFS, it just makes sense, suppressed firearms make for safer, ie less hearing damage,  hunting/shooting for all involved including your best four legged friends, (for those who hunt with them), and as for range use, well F..K, like I said to Sketch, it's almost considered rude here to turn up to a range and shoot without suppression, and when you consider the proximity of some ranges to other facilities, be they residential or commercial or whatever, the net effect is less noise complaints, less aggravation to your neighbours, less cost to clubs having to not install expensive, and for most intents, useless sound baffling.

Man I could go on and on, Who's making noises on your behalf over there????, whoever it is they need a F...in shake up, The NRA???, Who pays their wages???.

Just as well I don't live in the USA, I'd be down these F...kers necks boots and all, F...in bureaucrats give me the screaming shits.
