I'm new to this game and would like
all info I can get. I plan on purchasing
3 at one time so I need to find one builder
that will fit all my needs. My needs are ,
308 cal, 223 and 45 pistol (colt commander).
Gemtech with their bi-lock system looks interesting, AWC is the only other system that I have seen but not herd.

Any and all help, thanks.

My gun dealer has reccomended both Gemtech and AWC with the following opinions - He said Gemtech is the quietest but that AWC is more rugged and longer lasting. Having heard or seen neither I can make no comparison.

Try Roger Loock at Revelation Arms.
He works closely with Tom Bowers and they might be able to custom make suppressors for all your guns.
I have seen their manufacturing processes, and watched and listened to them not only in actual use at a range, but I have also watched and listened to them being tested in the shop. Very impressive noise reduction, and most of thier designs can be used either wet or dry. Both Tom Bowers and Roger Loock are both real nice guys and easy to wotk with.

I've had a chance to shoot AWC suppressors on both an AR and an HK Mk23 SOCOM pistol. I also shot an AWC Amphibian, a Ruger .22 with an integral suppressor. I was impressed with them, and especially the Amphibian. Just about all you could hear with it was the clacking of the bolt.
No experience with Gemtech.

Shoot straight & make big holes, regards, Richard at The Shottist's Center

I just had three Gemtech's come in on Friday. I am very happy with them. I have the raptor 9mm the .223 m96d and the .45 socom. The .30 caliber also came in but I have not been able to try it yet. I think the Gemtech's are lighter and more compact than other makes. Either way as long as you buy from a quality manufacturer you shouldn't have any problems. Gemtech is known for their customer service. They will also thread the barrel on your gun and install their quick attach mounting system.
