Hi I am new to the AR platform. What kinds of cost should you expect when shoping for a suppressor? Thanks for your time.

Always take into account your $200 Tax Stamp.

A QD (quick detach) or FA (fast attach) are the same thing and typically run a bit extra.

The only cost you SHOULD have to consider are the cost of the can, and the cost of the NFA Tax.
If you go through a dealer that charges you for the transfer, that sucks, but it might be you're only option. If you get to a dealer that has the one you want IN STOCK. That's great.

If they charge you to to help you fill out/send in paperwork...that sucks.
It's all stuff you can do on your own with a few questions on a board.

There are a few other threads dealing with suppressors lately that you might find some good info on.

Good Q & A here.

The money is not the hard part!

It's the waiting that sucks the most!

cost of the suppressor itself
$200 stamp
Cost of a living trust if don't have a nice LEO
dealer fees if he has any

That should cover it all OR if you want a safe amount and your not shopping for a high dollar one $2-3000 should cover ya!

Yeah, that's a little excessive. Actually, that's a LOT excessive.

Even if you drop a grand on a suppressor. (and you can get any number of VERY GOOD suppressors for less than $1000) If your spending an extra $1000 on fees or paperwork or whatever, you're either getting jerked around, ripped off, or you're paying extra and are clearly not concerned about it.

Saw an article in the latest Varmint Hunter Magazine that I received yesterday that seemed to say 'gas flow' or something in Suppressors(only skimmed it last nite)caused the first bullet to be off from the follow up bullets in ARs?????Off by an inch or two.
Correct?Comments?

that probably depends on the can, but my YHM doesn't do that.

If you are going to put it on an 223 I would buy a .30 caliber can that way you can use it on anything smaller than .30 except for some magnums. Cost for a centerfire run from 500-1500. I have a Thunderbeast Arms 30P-1 that is rated for up to 300 win mag. It was 1095 plus the stamp. Their are videos on YouTube of guys shooting 223 and 308 through it.

cbass, Have you had a chance to shoot multiple yotes on the same stand with your whizzer setup with can? I was wondering how the other dogs reacted to the noise. I noticed a slight noise level at your gun from your videos.

We did a set this morning. I was not the shooter, only the camera man, but my cousin was shooting a SRT Hurricane XL TI (i think)
He took one out of a pair at about 35 yds, the other was another 100yds out and took off without presenting a good shot so we let him go.
Before we could even get the dog for a post kill interview, we hear 3 barking off in the distance so we decided to give it another minute on the Prairie Blaster.
Sure enough, 2 of them start coming in too.

There are lots of videos where folks pop one out of a pair using a suppressor and the one still breathing doesn't even flinch. OF COURSE, this happens when people shoot at dogs that have never been called or shot at too, but not all of us have that luxury. It's really dependent on the dog, some bolt, some don't know what the heck happened.

If you haven't seen my deer hunting video about the reaction of the deer when shooting suppressed, take a peek.
I'm going to work on another one with coyotes but it's not very representational considering that you never know the reasons that will make a coyote run. Maybe he saw you, maybe he's been shot at before, maybe he smelled something wrong. Just never know.

Thank you for the info! It would be for a .223 I wanted a little more info before i got infont of all those people who suck! It would be a sound suppressor.

$2-3000 is not all that far off

$1000 for the suppressor
$500 for a lawyer to do a living trust
$200 tax stamp
$1700 total

Plus if you live some where like me the only place to even see them is 1.5hrs away so you still have to figure in gas at least two trips.

Easy answer is $200 more then what suppressor will cost you.

If they were cheap everyone would be shooting with one!

$300-$1300 difference in your price break down vs the estimate you gave is a LONG way off. That's the price of another 1-3 guns or even another suppressor.
I don't know about your cash flow, but if someone gave me a quote (on ANYTHING) that ended up being 10%-43% off, I'd be pissed.

$1000 for a suppressor is on the high end but not uncommon.

You can do a trust yourself, and have a qualified lawyer double check if for peace of mind for MUCH less than $500 and even then...its a one time expense that wouldn't factor into any subsequent NFA purchases.
NOT ONLY THAT, but the trust is not limited to guns or suppressors. You can use that for a car, a house a plot of land. Anything you'd like.

That's like including the price of a car in your gun purchase budget because you use it to get back and forth to the shooting range.

I'm not trying to break your balls on the topic, cause you're right, they are expensive and if they were cheap or easy (or legal in all states) everyone would have them, but no suppressor owners in my shooting circles have dropped that kind of EXTRA coin on a purchase.

Suppressor = $200-$2000+ (depending on caliber and materials)
Tax = $200
transfers and paperwork via dealers = ($0-$50) should be minimal to non-existent

Say for a .223rem, the AAC M4-2000 MOD 08 is rated at the top of the heep if not the top. Think I paid $800 or $900 for it plus a $200 tax. So out the door I was at or just above a grand.

Then you need a adaptor so either another $80 for the flash hider or $150 for the break.

I also got help with my living trust from my dealer so it was free. And I have heard alot of people have used quicken wills and not had any problems.
