I bought a hardy AR specific supressor for my AR when i first got it,my mate had bought a DPT so one day whilst having a bit of lead therapy we thought we'd compare em, the DPT was significantly quieter and lighter.

This review only reinforces what i thought i already knew albeit mine was done with out the gear but just on what we heard. A very fair test indeed. +1

Has anyone tested the change in zero if you add/remove baffles from the DPT?

Good write up,

How did the dpt feel in the hand compared to the gunworks one? Did the alloy feel or sound thinner? tinnier? There must be some reason why the gunworks is heavier? sturdier? I'm having trouble deciding what to put on my 708 tikka!

Cheers Smiley

Yep, a great resource, cheers 7/10's.

Hopefully the DPT I ordered through a local store will be here soon.  Cool Darren, if you read this, the H&J's one is for me, get a wriggle on  Grin
  

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

Out of interest do you know off hand what the rough price of each of those suppressors are?

The ex shouted me a hardy for the 22-250 and it tamed the noise a heap. They are a loud thing though so these must make a 223 really quiet.

Was about $550

Even just the price of the DPT?

Cheers for this, good to see a side by side review of them

Turns out that is all available on the internet - DPT a fair whack cheaper.

Awesome post THIS is why I hang around this forum. Once you wade through all the bitching and moaning and personal agendas you get to read little gems like this.
Well done

Now would that mean that you are bitching and moaning about other people bitching and moaning?
Contradictory don't you think? Wink
Great original post though, and screamingly fair, though I will be going to DPT if I ever need a can.

Yes, a mate just put a DPT over barrel suppressor on his Tikka T3 7mm-08 where the barrel was cut back to 16 inches... The whole package works a charm.

I just put an over barrel on my rugger compact.  It works well.

I have a DPT overbarrel (same as the one in this thread) on my 308 Savage 99, 13" barrel. Works great, shoots a foot of flame even with suppressor on. Darren from DPT reckoned the internals will be fine.
