Sound suppressors can be deceptively simple. In essence, most are just tubes with baffles. Right? Well, not quite. Just like AR-platform rifles, not all suppressors are created equal. Some are indeed very simple, but many are now space-age designs to reduce your rifle’s sound signature and eliminate flash without adding too much weight to the front of your weapon. Many designs are attachable and detachable quickly in the field without any tools. You need to shop around find the right suppressor to meet your needs. Thankfully, we’ve done most of the work for you here to make your life a little easier.
