How long does a supressor last?

I was told about 5,000 rounds or so?

Depends on the rounds that it is rated for. Where you looking for a 22LR. a 50 BMG suppressor, or something between???

Also depends on usage, whether it get shot through at a slow fire pace, or does it deal with mag dump after mag dump.

It depends on how the suppressor was manufactured. I have a suppressor for my M16 with over 30,000 rounds through it. Rapidly approaching that amount with my MP5 suppressor.

In addition, if you are man enough to wear one out, you can have it rebuilt.

Some suppressors are pretty tough. I have an AR15/M16 suppressor, an AAC M4-2000, that is rated for unlimited full auto including belt fed machine guns. The baffles are made from inconnel. I have been told this is a material used for very high temperature applictions such as internal parts of jet engines. It wouldn't be easy to wear one out.
If you are concerned with wearing one out, you can buy one of these cans that is rated for heavy full auto use. Even Tactical Innovations makes a .22 can rated for serious full auto use.
