Tell me about noise suppressors

I'm curious about noise suppressors (silencers). Mostly, I think it would be cool to have one. I have a lot of questions about them though.

1) Is a suppressor gun-specific? Or caliber specific?...

Is this the Wal-Mart in Cottonwood? They are so random in the ammo they get, and it goes pretty quickly. Except for the shotgun and .30-06, they seem to have a fair amount of this.

I just put a Sparc on my AR. I don't know if it works well, I can't get my wife to put it down. She seems to like it though!

I have a classic M1A with a walnut stock. It's too heavy to tote around all day. I like it, it's a 'classic', and it's fun to shoot but I'm thinking an AR-10 variant is the way to go. And no, I can't...

Interesting, thanks! Is it the same in Iowa? That's where I grew up and I never heard anyone mention it.

For those saying an M1A, that's a big, heavy gun compared to the AR10 copies being talked...

I'm not a hunter, but why is the .308 not legal for deer?

I'm looking for a .308 AR-10 style also, so I'm curious what people say. I'm looking at the S&W M&P10, the DPMS, or the new Ruger. I'm...

I have no idea what the torque specs are or I would put them in. I did 'pretty firm' hand-tight. The key is to do them all several times because when you do one, the other ones loosen.

If anyone...

Quick update - the .040 gas buffer along with the shock buffers has tamed the brass throw quite a bit. Still not as good as the AR @ 8-10 ft, but looks to be around 13-15 ft which is a TON better!

Quick update - still flinging the brass a good 20 feet or so. I had put on the .045 gas tube buffer. I'll switch to the .040 buffer (smallest one I got) and see if that helps. If that doesn't fix it,...
