I am looking for the best suppressor that can be used on any AK47 including the Draco pistol, the 16 inch DSA FAL, Full size M1A and M1A socom, and any other .308 bolt action. What other calibers can I use a .308 suppressor on? My main rifle that I want to run it on is an AK47.

The AAC 762SD is an excellent choice. You can run it on anything .308 and smaller. I use mine on an HK 91, M1a, Remington 700 LTR, and an M4 in 5.56. I've heard of them being used on AK's before but just make sure the threading on the gun is concentric. Commi block weapons are not know for holding tight tolerances and it could mean you end up with a baffle strike.

YHM 762 Phantom or AAC 762-SD

YHM makes mounts for the AK but AAC does not

I ran my YHM Phantom on my AK for a while, sound suppresson wasn't great but it did help. I wouldn't spend the cash on a AAC 7.62 SD because it's to nice of a can to waste on an AK. Like Peter said YHM makes a 14-1 left hand AK mount and is comes with the YHM. The only down side is that the YHM is HEAVY.

since you do plan on suppressing an AK.. buy the YHM 762 because YHM makes an AK mount...

it's built like a tank... it's even rated for 300 mag calibers

the AAC 762 is a better suppressor in my opinion, but for what you want to do ... go with the YHM

To go on all three rifles you will need a thread-on silencer and adaptors or the YHM Phantom.

The M1A requires an adaptor to put threads on it. Delta P makes a nice one with 5/8"-24 threads. http://deltapdesign.com/products.html

Kenneth Stuteville [url]ksville@wildblue.net[/url] makes all kinds of thread adaptors, including ones to take your AK and FAL to 5/8"-24. He's very well thought of on SnipersHide.

I chose a Tornado Stubby and adaptors to use on several rifles. Still waiting on the transfer....

I guess I have a different way of thinking... I would NOT buy the yhm can because it has an ak mount.... I would not trust the threading on a stock ak, unless it say had a new green mountain barrel, and even then I would have it checked. I would just get the 7.62sd, and have the ak rethreaded for brake or flash hider, for the 7.62sd. So even if you aren't running the suppressor, you will have a nice break or a flash hider.

Would the AAC be stronger than the Gemtech? I want a super strong can tha will last. Will the Gemtech be quieter than the AAC?
