    Hi!

    I'm trying to buy an m14 type rifle and I'm considering wether or not to get a suppressor for it in the future. The ultimate suppressor would to me have the following features:

    1. Quick detachable/attachable to a flash hider or other muzzle device (preferably not a muzzle break as I'm not too fond of the extra noise).

    2. Telescopic layout, i.e. the construction of the suppressor allows it to not extend too far beyond the barrel because the suppressor uses space behind the muzzle.

    Is there such a suppressor availible? On the world.guns.ru page for the m14 rifle there is a picture of an m14 dmr with what appears to be a telescopic suppressor, and since it's a military type rifle I figured there is some sort of adapter beneath.

    Thank you, oh wise!

    You might try checking Surefire.

    The suppressor shown in the photo appears to be of Ops Inc. manufacture.

    Most suppressors are not going to telescope more than an inch and a half back, unless you want to make a form one on your own.

    Mounting a suppressor on an M14 without modification is somewhat problematic due to the small and splined muzzle threads and lack of a proper thread shoulder. Your two best bets are to either use a barrel that has a more conventional thread/shoulder arrangement or use a muzzle device on the factory threads that the suppressor attaches to.

    We did once make a replica of the Sonics M14 suppressor. It connects by screwing onto the muzzle threads but using tightening collet rear on the barrel to help alignment and provide some reflex ("telescoping") action.

    never heard of a telescopic suppressor, but YHM makes an flash hider/quick detach. I have not heard it, and most of YHM stuff I have heard is not the quietest, but I would say its good value for the sound reduction it gives.

    A telescopic silencer simply covers more than the muzzle. They are called Reflex designs (the ones from Finland) by some. They make for very sturdy mounts, but are heavier and make the barrel heat up faster than one mounted only on the muzzle. Here are a few I made.

    Thank you all for your replies, especially Ranb!


    I live in Sweden where suppressors aren't harder to get a hold of than rifles or shotguns. The suppressors used are generally designed for the hunting crowd. You could say that they are "fudd" suppressors.

    The point of this thread is for me to try and figure out if I can have an m14 style rifle with BOTH the 22" barrel AND a suppressor that doesn't make the rifle much longer than a scout with suppressor. Having an adapter or some sort of muzzle device to acommodate the suppressor would be cool, as I probably wouldn't have to use threads (that get dirty or damaged) if the rifle had one.

    I don't see how you'll be able to put much of a reflex suppressor on an M14 without changing the gas system. Taking the front sight and moving it back to the position of the Scouts will only give you around 4 inches of barrel to play with.

    the suppressor in the pic you linked to is a smith enterprises. i have the 5.56 version of that can and it is definitely not reflex. it only appears that way because it is attaching over the relatively long smith enterprises vortex flash hider

    if you search the rifle country forum, you'll find a LOT of pictures of suppressed m14s about a year ago

    If I were to make a reflex type silencer for my M-1a, I would not change the gas system at all, just remove the front sight and install a scope. It might look something like this.

    I do plan on making one for my M-1a, but it will most likely be a muzzle can that attaches to an adaptor installed on the tiny muzzle threads. In fact it might be a good idea to use an adaptor for a reflex type can also.
