What suppressor for Kimber Montana?

Am considering getting a Kimber Montana in .308. The barrel is prethreaded for a suppressor.

Any thoughts on what would be a good suppressor.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Spot, unfortunately suppressors are illegal in my state. How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

I presume the rifle will be used for hunting? If so, weight will be a top priority. A stainless can might be 20-25oz. Titanium construction will be half that.

Another consideration is attachment. Less expensive cans simply thread onto the barrel. Other designs are used in combination with a compensator/brake installed on the barrel. The can will quick attach/detach to the muzzle device. Most muzzle device attachment designs will lock the can in place and won't loosen after repeated shooting like a simple muzzle thread-on design might.

Length is a consideration for guys looking for a compact rifle/can package but that won't be a criteria for a Kimber Montana. However... 30cal can will work with all your other 30cal or smaller caliber rifles where compact size might be more important-- like an AR platform. So that might be worthy of consideration.

There are so many choices out there your head will spin looking at them all. silencershop.com are very knowledgeable and great to do business with. You might take some time on their website learning what's available and then call them with your questions. If you're unfamiliar with NFA class III purchase process they'll walk you through it... no worries. Good guys to work with.

For your specific application I'd recommend looking at the Thunderbeast Ultra 9 or the Silencerco Omega. Capital Armory carries them both. Good luck!
