YHM Phantom, Trust.

Went Pending on January 26th, should be approved sometime this month if not early next month, planning to pick it (And my YHM Cobra 9mm) up when I head home on Spring Break.

I'm thinking about getting a .30 cal sized one and using it on my .223 as well. Don't know exactly how well it's going to work like on the smaller caliber though.

Cannot have a proper battle rifle thread without FALs!


I started with these two receivers:



And chose the M14 to build first. Probably will do the FAL late this year or early next...

They suppress decently, definitely not as good as a dedicated .223 suppressor, but they knock off a good 15-20db. Some of the higher-end .308 ones rival the majority of .223 ones, though.

140db is the cutoff you're looking for, as that's what OSHA says is the limit for "hearing safe" impulse noise. Normally a .308 shot is around 167 db, and a .223 shot around 165 db.

The Phantom certainly isn't the best .308 suppressor, but it's pretty good for the money.

Before deciding what to buy, I would suggest getting a premium account at Silencer Research, as the guy who runs it just did a major test of .308 and .223 suppressors a few months ago, and his numbers are very trusted. It's $30 for a premium account, but that's a drop in the bucket to what you'll spend on a suppressor, and could prevent you from making a mistake by buying one that performs poorly.

Did someone say FAL?!

Just picked her up 2 days ago. Has a few naughty bits on it and needed a new firing pin. But after i get some cleaning supplies, it should be top-notch! It was a steal for what it is really.

Man, that thing has a bad-ass battlefield pick-up look to it!

Yeah, you can't fake a been-there, done-that patina like that. I'd leave it just as it is.
