    I've just purchased a 7.62 PWS Diablo SBR and have some questions about suppressing it. I was first looking at the AAC 762-SDN-6, put when I called PWS to ask about the threading, they told me the only can they found to work reliably was the Delta P Brevis. Does anyone run either of these cans on a 7.62 Diablo? With what adapter for the SDN-6? With stock buffer or a replacement? I'm open to all input and advice on this. Thanks everyone!

    No idea on your question, but pictures would be awesome.

    Understood, but I don't expect the stamp until maybe around May.

    How does a can "run reliably" or not? Anyway, I don't have a PWS Diablo, DB or 762sdn-6 can. I do however have a 16" 7.62x39 piston AR and a 762SD can. It works as far as suppressing the "boom" from the muzzle and cycles fine. The sonic crack will still be there, but it is hearing safe (to me). I use a standard buffer. The SDN-6 would be a better choice for SBR because of the all iconel baffle stack and endcap. I cannot see how one can is more reliable than another except for a blowback issue, but that is not a big deal with adjustable pistons.

    7 inches of barrel is typically not enough to stabilize the bullet. The Diablo has a 1:8 twist rate, so the bullet doesn't even get one full turn before exiting the barrel. Unstable round=baffle strikes, but it seems people are running this weapon suppressed without issues. That's what I'm primarily interested in. Confirmation and details on that.

    Most suppressor manufacturers will NOT warranty below 12" due to your blast baffle being absolutely hammered in something that short. If you want to suppress with that length I would suggest looking into 300 Blackout.
