Hi before I get started, I have read Nathan’s book and have found it highly informative and after some careful consideration have decided that I need a suppressor on my rifle. I have looked at a wide range of suppressors however just wanted some other opinions here first just to see others thoughts or experiences.

First Option: Gunworks Spartan Suppressor 9 inches Long and 41mm diameter weights up to 330g

Second Option: DPT Centerfire duralium over barrel modular 205mm long 44.5mm diameter and weights 260g

Open to other models/brands as well but these two above are my preferred option from the limited knowledge I have.

Have been on various forums and read a lot of good reviews but have just come away unsure and was not sure if anyone here would be able to offer up any good advice if possible.

Re: Suppressor .308
I have spartans on my rifles and love them, the .223 has its own and my two larger rifles share one with different back spacer/ring. went out shooting wallabies a month ago and both of us had GW cans..very pleasant day without any ear ringing at all despite 50 odd rounds being fired.
cant fault the service from G.W. nice guys to deal with and great product.

You won't go wrong with DPT, Gunworks or Dan Hardy's. The DPT is lighter and very well made but if you are using a scope with a very low magnification you will see this suppressor through your scope. You can take 1 baffle out for an even lighter/shorter unit and it doesn't make it any louder than the others. Gunworks service is excellent and they offer full gun smithing not just suppressors.
