Barrett made one specific to that model but from what I have found out, it has never been released to the general public. They did make one for the M468 but it will not work on the REC7 as per Barrett. I still hope they do release it sometime in the near future.

The Rep I spoke to at the Silencer Shoot when I kind of asked/guessed was that there was too many good manufacturers out there already, they didn't see it worthwhile to throw their hat in the ring on Suppressor Manufacturing, so they had stopped.

With that being said, I have no idea what their intentions are, but I'm inclined to believe him.

AAC made a suppressor that screws onto the gas black some years ago.
It was an "exclusive" contract so at the time none were released, however if you call AAC they may be able to give you a line on where some may be.
I will check the one guy who I know of who may have one and PM if he does.

Good luck finding the threaded gas block model. I had a customer that wanted one like that, as well as the suppressor to go with it. I called Barrett to find out more info, and they told me only the first prototypes were released that way. I looked all over and have never found one. I got him a new REC7, and now it's time to decide what suppressor arrangement to go with.

I saw an AAC built suppressor on gunbroker awhile back. I cant seem to find it again though.

Here is an custom AWC titanium suppressor though.

So you don't have the rifle now?
If you don't know where one is right now then it will be extremely hard to find.
A buddy of mine has one and put his order in back when they were the threaded gas block but when his arrived it was what we see today.
No option to get the other.

There are gen 1 rifles on gunbroker....

But I don't want the rifle without the correct suppressor.

Thanks, Greg
