Surefire 260RC2 vs 65RC2 - is there any difference?

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.

Surefire 260RC2 vs 65RC2 - is there any difference?

Surefire released the SOCOM260-RC2 in 2018 and it appeared in their 2019 catalog, but in 2020 and 2021 it no longer appears and has seemingly been replaced by the SOCOM65-RC2. Are these identical silencers? Did they just rebrand it to appeal more to 6mm and 6.5mm shooters who didn't understand you can use a .260 can on those guns? Or did they actually change something about the design? Along those same lines, they also changed the part number of the corresponding mounts (ie, the SFMB-260-5824 brake versus the newer SFMB-65-5824 brake) - are these identical parts? Can you mount a SOCOM260 on a SFMB65?
