SAS Suppressor

Hi Guys,
I am considering buying a suppressor for my .308 rifle. I've done some research on the subject and concluded that and SAS (Suppressed Armament Systems) suppressor may be in my future.

I'm looking at the Arbiter .308 Titanium Suppressor. It seems like the obvious choice when looking at the data. My question is: does any one have any experience with the SAS Arbiter?

All advice is appreciated.

No personal experience, but others on precision shooting related forums seem to like them alot. I've got the new Reaper (same as Arbiter, but 2" shorter and only weighs 10 oz as opposed to 12.4) at the dealer waiting on a stamp. Bought it over the AAC 762SDN-6 after hearing from others. Mine will be sharing time between a 10" 300 BLK Noveske (primarily)and a 16.5" POF P-308. The POI shift is reported by many users to be minimal, whereas the AAC cans seem to be all over the map lately.

Thanks for your response RyeDaddy.

What Precision Shooting forum are you taking about? I need to get more feedback.

Ironically I also have a POF 308, mine has the 20" barrel. That's my favorite rifle, absolutely love it. It's mated to a Swarovski Z6 5-30x50. Check it out.

I love my POF as well, kudos! Sniper's Hide Forum has the SAS info you seek. Over there the members seem very fond of Thunderbeast Arms (for which Houston Armory by you is a stocking dealer) and SAS, but there's a wealth of info on just about any kind of rifle suppressor you could want.

Mile High Shooting (the distributor for SAS) is a member over there, and they post pretty regularly. Kino (username on Sniper's Hide) has alot of info about SAS, and posts quite a bit, I don't believe he works at SAS, but he seems to go to the range regularly with Tim, the owner. If you search through his posts you'll find a bunch of info. If you have any direct questions about Suppressed Armament call Mile High Shooting in Colorado, they are the exclusive distributor and answer calls and questions when you need info. Trying to contact Tim at SAS is just about impossible being it's basically just him running the operation. Apparently he thinks (wisely i believe) it's more important to make his products for customers than answer the phone or check his email. Good luck in your search, and good luck to all of us awaiting approval from the ATF!
