7.62mm Rifle Category: Where to start?

762 Rifle CategoryTo continue our breakdown of the different categories of silencers, we turn our attention to the expansive 7.62mm rifle group. With such a great variety of 7.62mm rifle suppressors to choose from, there are several highly-effective options available.

In order to help you select the perfect 7.62 can for your situation, Silencer Shop is ready to assist throughout the entire purchasing process.

7.62mm Rifle Overview

As the case with 5.56mm rifle units, the best approach is to decide which silencer characteristics are the most important to you, such as: length, weight, sound suppression, attachment method, and price point.

Generally, rifle units weigh more than pistol and rimfire cans due to the thicker and stronger build materials often used to enhance their durability.

With our vast inventory of rifle models, finding your ideal suppressor is just a few mouse clicks away.

Key 7.62mm Silencer Features

A main attribute of rifle silencers is their ability to shoot a multitude of ammunition. The use of subsonic (below the speed of sound) ammo makes the can perform more effectively than the use of supersonic (faster than the speed of sound) ammo. When a bullet breaks the sound barrier, a miniature sonic “boom/crack” is created, which is audible. Because silencers cannot reduce this sound, subsonic rounds are noticeably quieter when run through a suppressor.

Moreover, quick-attach (commonly called QD) 7.62mm rifle units are a popular choice for avid shooters because they usually contain a locking mechanism, which ensures the silencer from coming unscrewed from its host firearm. The flash hider or muzzle break that the can attaches to often acts as an adapter. This perk allows you to utilize the same silencer on various guns with different thread pitches, as fastening the needed quick-attach muzzle device onto the barrels permits the suppressor to easily fit multiple host firearms.  Muzzle devices for your QD silencer of choice can often be purchased separately and enable you to easily utilize one silencer on many of your rifles!

For shooters wanting to run a larger caliber silencer on smaller caliber firearms (e.g., a 7.62mm suppressor on a 5.62mm rifle), quick-attach options tend to stand out. The specific muzzle device also acts as a thread “adapter,” and these models offer great sound reduction and overall flexibility. Although all mounting styles provide effective performance, the consensus is that hunters prefer the accuracy of taper-mount cans; however, you cannot go wrong with any of the modern QD systems or direct-thread options either… Explore all possibilities.

7.62 units handle 7.62×51 (.308), .30-06, .30-30, 7.62×39, 7mm, 6.8, 6.5, and everything that 5.56 silencers handle. Some models even run .300 Win Mag or .300 Remington Ultra Mag! Needless to say, the versatility of 7.62mm rifle cans is quite impressive.

      YOu will need the adapter like the one from Smith Enterprise and probably a new gas plug. They aren’t the easiest or cheapest to suppress.
