  • Suppressor (Silencer) Brand Choice for Hunting

    I'm starting the process of getting a suppressor or silencer for hunting and target shooting purposes, and I am overwhelmed by suppressor manufacturers... most of which seem way too tactical for my purpose. Can anyone point me to a small number of suppressor manufacturer recommendations, which ones work the best in a hunting and target shooting situation?

    I always though silencers were illegal for hunting. Something change?

      What caliber/s are you looking to suppress? Different companies make good ones for different purposes.

          I always thought they were illegal also but a search through the regs doesn't mention it. There is no reason they should be illegal.

              Do you think that if suppressors were to be declared illegal in Alaska, the incidence of poaching would decrease:confused:

                I think poaching would be illegal whether you have a silencer or not.

                  Supposedly it is legal in some states. Commiefornia and Fascist New York you can hold your hand on your butt. Here is the best site I could find on the issue.

                    Buy a cheap one..not much difference in actual field performance. The expensive ones are like designer jeans, cost more but Carhartts work just as well.

                      Go talk with Steve at Alaska Tactical on Muldoon, he can walk you through it.
                      Which can is "not so tactical" doesn't matter. They have a simple job to do and these days they are all so similar it doesn't really matter which brand. There may be warranty differences to consider but the rest is fluff. I look at weight and $

                        Exactly what kubs said! Steve will talk you through the +/- of them and then go from there. He will have some on hand to look at. Just like guns and rods you can spend a lot or less...

                          I've been a bit interested in one. A friend of mine in England reports it's considered essential and nearly every centerfire rifle has one over there.

                          I watched some video of him shooting his .270 with the suppressor fitted... not as loud as a plain muzzle but still pretty darn loud.

                            Silencers on High-Powered rifles don't really "Silence" as the speed of the bullet causes a loud "crack"
                            If we all agreed....this would be no fun

                              Supressors are required in some countries/areas. They are favored in populated areas and in Africa because it aids the PH in hearing the hit.
                              They make alot of sense to protect hearing so you don't end up like me, hearing loss and hearing aids and getting worse with age. Funny they make us wear seatbelts but we can' t protect our hearing because someone MIGHT break the law.
                              When I was looking at New Zealand for hunting, I can carry my gun into a shop, and $700 later walk out with a supressor, barrel threaded ready to shoot. Not in this country, 6-8 month wait and $3000 later..... under suspicion becuase I followed the law...
