Will three baffles disappoint me?

I was looking for suppressors for my Ruger Scout and I came across the rex silentium custom. Is ordering one with 3 baffles a dumb idea?

I prefer to shoot heavy subsonics, and my supers are usually below minimum charge too, and I'd probably wearing earpro if I was shooting supers anyway, so I figured how bad would it be?

    Everything depends on muzzle pascals which in turn are dependent on barrel length and cartridge. If you're firing 7.62x39 from a 26" barrel you won't drop a decibel even doubling the internal volume of the suppressor. If you're rifle is in .300 RCM with a barrel of twenty inches you'll see a different outcome.

      That doesn't really help me. I was more interested in hearing from someone who had a tiny suppressor like this and could give an anecdote.

        I have a Turbo K. It’s a bit bigger than what you’ve ordered, but with a similar number of baffles. Since it’s a .22 cal suppressor, it’ll never really be hearing safe on anything I’ll put it on. That said, it definitely makes a big difference. I’ve fired it without ear pro and, while uncomfortable, it’s not deafening or painful. If I were you’d I’d probably add an extra baffle to bring it up to four. But it will still help, especially with making subs tolerable without ear pro

          my FFL just called and they got my Turbo K in today! I already have an R9 and it works pretty well on 5.56, but I figured might as well get the dedicated can instead of swapping between my 9mm and my rifle.

            Nice! I’ve been looking to pick up an R9. I have a Resonator R2 that sits on my hd gun, but it’s so damn long it’s just like a normal carbine now even with the 10.5” barrel. Makes 300 subs laughably quiet though

            I also vote for 4 baffles.
            Whatever you choose, can is better than no can.

        Oh, I've got a rugged micro 30, it's 3 baffles long, and 2 short, it's pretty loud. Is MG7 too big? I'm thinking of buying one of those, honestly. I'm just lazy af, so I'll need silencershop to carry them first, or someone else invent a fingerprint kiosk network.

        Field reports revealed the blast baffle was indeed too close to the muzzle and had tremendous amounts of premature wear and tear.
        I'm not saying the mini can pictured by OP is a scam. But it's awfully small and you're fighting dimensional problems with a small suppressor.

        Rex are legit.

    Suppressing a Ruger scout can be a pain in the ass btw op
    It's been done obviously and can work but it seems to be a crap shoot dictated by your gun, get an alignment rod to be sure.

      The suppressors are larger than OP's photo makes them look. 1.7" diameter, full auto rated, no barrel length restriction fwiw

        Is the baffle stack removable? The forward half looks to have welds every 1/2" or so.

            Bummer. I've got a couple of suppressors. Only one I can open and clean the baffles. It vexes me that my 22LR can -- the one that gets the most dirty -- is welded shut.

              Rifle cans generally never even need cleaning because 1) you're probably not firing uncoated lead and 2) the blast blasts away all foreign particles

              With that being said, where the heck did you find a .22lr can that wasn't serviceable? I didn't even think they made those. Maybe in Yurup where you can get 22lr cans for 20$ or something, then it would make sense

                Gemtech Outback. My first suppressor. Purchased last century. My chief signed so personal ownership, no trust hackery.
                The original ones, pre-buyout, back when Gemtech was in Boise ID, were welded shut.
                nu-Gemtech offers a "core upgrade" for $200 or $300 but I'm not sure I trust the nu-Gemtech (on the east coast)

                Yeah, when Doc, Greg, and Kel sold Gemtech, they sold to a guy whos name I forget.
                That started good, but didn't go well.

                S&W swooped in and picked up the logo and, maybe, the IP.
                > Doc was really good about having Gemtech license the IP from a corp he owned

        yeah that's bs, and you're coping hard if you think they have some special titanium that's different than everyone else in the world.

        Ti cans are for very very slow rate of fire

            Does heat treated stainless matter when its gonna get heating up until those crystallisation structures change if you use it full auto?

    OP fun fact when yhm was designing their turbo cans, they had way more baffles and werent happy with the results so some engineer there suggested removing a bunch, and the results were very surprising. The turbo k has like 3 and sounds really good for its size

    Better play it safe and get 4 baffles. It will still be lighter and shorter than basically everything else on the market

    Yes you will be disappointed with a 3 baffle can. Get the mg7k at a minimum...what caliber are you trying to suppress .308?

      Yes it's 308 but like I said mostly subsonics and light loads

        Yeah, those short cans are for just taking the edge off of supersonics...will sound like ass on subsonic...I would really go mg7k or mg10x or what not, the one that screws in half

    Are slower bullets quieter than faster ones, both with an equal powder charge? If the bullet stays in the can longer, that gives the can more time to more uniformly pressurize, and thus the gas is at a lower peak pressure when vented into the atmosphere? Am I right in thinking this is the case?

    • 1 month ago

      generally yes. and because the gas itself is moving slower too.

      i have personally witnessed it with 556, comparing 77gr to 55gr with a 14.5 barrel and 6" suppressor. identical powder charge, the 77gr was noticeably quieter despite both being super.

    if you are shooting 300blk bolt action youll need at least 5-7 baffles to shoot without earpro

    3 baffles will be painful and not enjoyable at all

    No one here owns or shoots guns. Buy whatever you want. Even a 3 baffle can is miles ahead of a no baffle can.

    I find "Kurz" suppressors to be disappointing. I only would get one for a pistol and that's only because really long/heavy ones are awkward to use with them.
