    Wow. So much advice! Thanks everyone! Couple more questions.SgtStrykerUSMC43, how often do you have them in stock? I'm interested, but I just need a bit of time to think. Also, what are the major advantages of running a 30 cal can on a non-30 cal rifle? And does it carry platform to platform?

    The major advantage of running a .30cal suppressor on non-.30cal rifles is that you only need to buy on suppressor, one tax stamp, and only have to go through and put up with the ungodly long wait time once. There really no performance benefit from running a .30cal suppressor on no-.30cal rifles.

    One disadvantage with running a .30cal suppressor would be if you never plan on running it on anything other than a 5.56, a lot of the .30cal suppressors are a good bit heavier(most are almost double)than a dedicated 5.56 suppressor. Most of time this isn't the case, once you go suppressed you start to want to suppress everything and with a QD suppressor you just need to buy the correct mounts for the other rifles you want to suppress from .30cal down to the 5.56.

    It pretty much boils down to this... You will be happy with any of the big 3(Gemtech,AAC, or YHM phantom). I just prefered to get one "can" that would satisfy many rifles and loved the idea of a QD(quick detach) system that I don't have to wory about messing up my threads and can quickly change them over.

    I order them on a regular basis and haven't been able to keep a Ti 7.62 Phantom for myself yet. I just sold another one and have 3 more on order due to lead time. I anticipate demand staying strong on the Ti 7.62 Phantom and I try to keep up with it as best I can. I currently have another (2) pending with BATFE and (4) still waiting to be mfr'd.

    If you only have the SCAR 16, and don't see a 17 in your future, just stick with the 5.56 suppressor and you'll have a lifetime of shooting pleasure.

    Talhoffer already covered the points and I have nothing to add from an individual standpoint. As an 07/02 SOT, I need more than one for testing and demo purposes.

    PM me whenever you're ready and I'll help you any way I can.

    Haha this is so amazing everyone. Thanks again. I don't see another SCAR in the future, so I think I'm gonna stick to a dedicated 5.56 suppressor. Still undecided. If I have anymore questions I know where to go! Thanks again everyone!

    I am not a fan of using a 30cal. can on 5.56 rifles. Tried it once and did not like it. Many 5.56 silencers are sold ever year, if it made no difference customers would only buy the 30cal cans and manufactures would only make the 30cal cans. I have used a 45cal pistol silencer on 9mm and 40S&W pistols and it was great but my main use was for a 45.

    I have a Gemtech OutBack (22lr) Gemtech Halo (223) and YHM QD Phantom 7.62 SS Let me ad my voice to those who say if you are going to be a one can guy start with the 7.62. While there is a slight difference in perceived report it is minimal enough that I would have saved the cost of the Halo and stamp. Also as noted you really can't go wrong with any of the Big 3 brands. As far as Budget goes it is hard to beat YHM
