    Suppressor mounts for a newb

    Howdy all
    Iíve been kicking around getting into suppressors for a while and Silencerco got me with their BOGO deal.
    Velos paperwork was signed/submitted today, Omega 300 when it arrives in a few months.

    So I have some time to research mounts.
    Hosts are going to be 14.5-20Ē ARís in 5.56 and 6.5 Grendel.
    Iíd rather something a bit shorter than the ASR mounts and I like what I see from rearden mfg, but I donít know whatís what truthfully. I know the reardens donít lock like the ASR do, but is that something I really need?

    Anything other than rearden I should consider? Key considerations for me would be flash hider mounts that can pin and weld to a 14.5 to get 16Ē, and shortest adapters for the cans.

    Taper only mounts are pretty well proven by now. I donít think you need the secondary locking mechanism for any normal consumer uses.

    Iíd recommend you just use the direct thread base or mount system that comes with the silencer for a while before you start pinning mounts.

    I have a couple that are going to have to be pinned to be used at all, hence the question.

    You may not end up wanting to use it on every one of your ARís.

    I have never seen any Rearden mount in person. The design doesnít look bad or anything, Iíve just never seen anyone use it.

    One concern of combining the shortest mount and longer muzzle devices for pinning is how much room your silencer has to the first baffle. Definitely something you want to confirm will fit your silencer before you start pinning muzzle devices.

    While we are here, are there ‘families’ of mounts? The comments here read like there are types that will work a few cans, or that cans can work with a few mounts?

    The pistol brace to SBR is a gateway drug for me on NFA items with suppressors next on the list. The mounts were my first question.
    The Second Amendment ACKNOWLEDGES our right to own and bear arms that are in common use that can be used for lawful purposes. The arms can be restricted ONLY if subject to historical analogue from the founding era or is dangerous (unsafe) AND unusual.

    It's that simple.

    Many current silencers donít have a mount permanently built in. The mount to silencer thread is more or less standardized into something called HUB.

    So you buy the HUB mount for the family of muzzle devices you want to use.

    Check out Griffin Armament taper mount devices and Plan A adapters. They have pinnable, extra short, and titanium devices and 3 lengths of Plan A adapters. I agree with the sentiment that secondary locking features are unnecessary.

    Yup, Iíve tried a variety of mounts and settled on these a few years ago. Iíll be using them with my Velos and Omega 300 that I BOGOd. Its on 4 of the 6 rifle cans in my safe, already. The other two have permanent/non-replaceable mounts.

    Another cool thing about them is theyíre readily available in all kinds of thread patterns, so you can use it with some AKs, or a .338 Lapua.

    Light, short, inexpensive, available, doesnít carbon lock, holds the can on well, every type of muzzle jewlery you could want, doesnít affect accuracy, etc.

    Thanks, these look about perfect.
    I was having trouble finding a SiCo Charlie thread adapter but it looks like Griffin has that and everything else covered.
