Have you ever questioned the need to suppress your AR? The 5.56 caliber is supersonic and will never be subsonic, so it’ll never be that quiet? The AR-15 is one of the most widely used firearms for both competition, leisure shooting, and hunting, but the 5.56 caliber's loud report can be harmful to your hearing. A suppressor can help make the loud report bearable. In this post, we'll look at the advantages of silencers on an AR-15 platform and how they can prevent hearing loss.
The 5.56 caliber is one of the most widely used, but it is also extremely loud. A 5.56's report can permanently and irreversibly destroy hearing if the user is not wearing hearing protection. The AR-15 may be lessened to a lower decibel level that is considered bearable. “Bearable” is a very important aspect. Depending on the model of silencer, shooting several rounds without additional hearing protection is safe. However, it is important to note that prolonged exposure can still result in hearing loss, even with a silencer attached. Essentially, a silencer on an AR-15 allows the shooter to make a few shots without the immediate need for hearing protection such as on a hunt or a home invader scenario.
A suppressor has additional advantages than just hearing protection. Silencers can also aid precision. Suppressors aid to improve the accuracy of subsequent rounds by reducing or eliminating muzzle flash by controlling the expanding gases from the muzzle. Why is the flash important? If you are hunting hogs at night for instance, reducing the flash will make follow up shots much easier. Suppressed AR-15s are ideal for hunters or anyone that requires communicating with other people. One such example may be communicating with a fellow hunter on a hog or coyote hunt.
In conclusion, an AR-15 silencer may be a useful accessory. Your hearing will be preserved, communication become easier, accuracy may be increased, and flash is reduced. A suppressor can nevertheless aid to minimize hearing loss brought on by loud gunshots, even if the 5.56 caliber is not as quiet as a 300BLK or a 9mm. The hearing of recreational shooters and hunters across the world may be preserved as a result.

I ship nationwide (to free states that is). If you live in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, I can prepare/submit your Form 4 and transfer to you. Don't see what you want? Let me know and I'll bring it in! Suppression made easy!
