The two primary accessories offered for suppressors are suppressor adapters and pistons. With the use of silencer adapters, modern day suppressors are easily removed and mounted on multiple barrels, allowing a user to purchase a single suppressor and get the most out of it.
Rifle Suppressor Mounts
Quick detach rifle suppressors use muzzle device mounts as the means of attachment. These muzzle devices are normally flash suppressors or muzzle breaks that screw onto threaded barrels, offering the suppressor a place to attach firmly and the ability to be removed effortlessly. Such muzzle devices are available in many different thread pitches, allowing a suppressor to fit on different barrels utilizing different thread pitches. The suppressor then fits over the muzzle device and firmly attaches using its chosen attach mechanism. The suppressor can then be switched out to other rifles of the same caliber or smaller calibers. This modern form of attachment offers economic advantages as the cost of a mount ranges from $170 - $115, which is much better than purchasing multiple suppressors, which range from $700 - $1400.
*Please note: It’s important to make sure that a suppressor is rated for the caliber of weapon that it’s attached to.
Barrel Adapter Suppressor | Suppressor Pistons
Quality modern pistol suppressors are equipped with removable pistons. Pistons are similar to rifle mounts except that they fit inside of the suppressors themselves. Suppressor pistons allow the suppressor to thread onto the threaded barrel. Pistons are available in many different threading pitches allowing for the suppressor to be mounted on pistols with different thread pitches and calibers. Switching a piston is easy and only takes a of couple seconds.
The cost of a pistol suppressor piston ranges from $70 - $80.
*Please note: It is important to make sure that a suppressor is rated for the caliber for which its use is intended.
