Recomendations for QD .338 muffler

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

Recomendations for QD .338 muffler

Post by GlockandRoll » Sun Dec 21, 2014 8:00 pm

Haven't bought a silencer in nearly 6 years, so I need some guidance as to what is recommended.
I'm hearing great things about the Harvester big-bore, and that it will be available with a QD model soon, and really like the SF QD system.

What is the best bang for the buck, that's not too heavy?

Same boat.

I am trying to decide between a Harvester Big Bore and a Titan.

Decided to wait until shot show to see if there would be any new additions....

yeah, I'm really thinking, for the money however, that the Griffin Armament ain't too shabby!

you may also want to consider the Thunderbeast 338BA suppressor.

I have a Thunderbeast 338 BA and a SF 338.

I am much happier with the Thunderbeast.

Here is a review I did last year on it.

Check out Elite Iron. Heavy, but heavy-duty.

I have only seen/handled the Harvester Big Bore. I hope to shoot/demo it in the future. The options of switching from a threaded to a QD muzzle mount is interesting.

Below are two links to comparisons I did with the AAC Titan QD. I have also shot/demoed other .338 suppressors including the TBAC 338BA, AWC THOR PSR, Surefire 338, SAS Vengeance, Elite Iron and others, but data was not collected. I understand some of these are T.O.M.B. and not actually QD.

To answer your question, 'best bang for buck, that is not too heavy ?'.... It is not an easy answer when looking at a .338 QD suppressor. Your options would be the Harvester, Surefire, AAC Titan, and___________ (fill in the blank for people smarter than me). With mounts utilizing threading or T.O.M.B., you have many more options. Since you are considering the Griffin Armament(T.O.M.B.), I would say 'great choice'.

Sig is also releasing one and there have been favorable initial comments on their smaller cans. Kevin Brittingham is their chief designer now.
