I am new to the suppressor scene and I have done my research on how to obtain one. So I am looking for a suppressor for my vanguard varmint .308 (http://www.snipercentral.com/vanguardvs.htm). I was looking at this website (http://www.advanced-armament.com/default.aspx?pageId=25) and i was wanting to go with one of the first 3 options. I would like to see what you all here on the site would recommend. I'm assuming that any local gun smith should be able to install it?

AAC has a pretty big following. They are one of the biggest names in the suppressor business. I am sure someone will chime in saying that they are junk. Every major company has it's haters, some justified and some not. I don't know I don't own an AAC can.

Unless your local gunsmith is a 07/02 or knows his stuff about threading barrels DO NOT have him mount that can. If your barrel is not threaded, find someone who knows how to do it right. If the threads are just a little bit out of alignment with the barrel you can have some severe baffle strikes that will destroy your suppressor.
