    Will the standard 30cal can, assuming it can handle the pressures, fit the larger bullets of the 7.62x39 and 7.62x54?

    30cal or .308 is .308
    7.62x39 is .311
    7.62x54 is .312

    Does anyone know how big the bullet is when leaving the muzzle? Or had experiance shooting a can on there .308, AK and Mosin?

    Don't know about the 7.62x54 -- corrosive ammo would be my last choice for a suppressor, unless its design made it really easy to clean, but Gem-Tech sells AK 7.62x39 M14x1LH quick mounts for their .308 HVT suppressor. I've got one and the can should be in my hands April 20th. I don't expect issues, plan to use it on my SBR Draco-C along with a couple of .308s and 5.56 rifles.

    It'll be good for .003" bigger. x54r is also .311", by the way. At least my surplus is. But yeah, don't let that go without cleaning after shooting... It'd suck for a suppressor to get corroded.

    My AAC SDN-6 is all inconel on the inside, and I was told by a guy with a PhD in nuclear engineering that I have absolutely nothing to worry about, regarding corrosive ammo. I feel confident in his guidance :) I intend to thread my new American Westinghouse Mosin-Nagant to accept the suppressor, so that is good news.

    Sounds good, thinking about threading a 30-06, .308, AK, Mosin and maybe a Tokarev and working up sub-sonics (yes, I know the semis probably won't cycle) in all of them as I reload so corrosion would only be a problem if I wanted to see how hot I could get it.

    Is there such a thing as an affordable suppressor for 7.62x39mm? I'd like to use my SA vz-58 for pig, maybe, since AZ is decriminalizing suppressors for hunting AND eliminating magazine limits.

    Huntertown Arms is making a suppressor for 7.62x39. User serviceable, and supposedly affordable.

    If your Westinghouse is in otherwise original configuration, I would avoid threading it.

    Great Scott I would agree, that is a collectible firearm, sir. it IS yours, of course, but I would "ditto" the above poster, and suggest maybe a nice Tula or Izzy?
    Editing to add, Huntertown seems to have much less expensive suppressors than they have locally, thats' for certain! Contacted for more info...

    Don't worry, gentlemen, I know better than to desecrate something like that; unfortunately, it has already been cut down to roughly carbine length (21" barrel or so) before I acquired it. I only paid $100 for it, but I find it to be much nicer than many M91's I have encountered before. Enough about that, though, I don't want to derail the OP's thread.

    I second the mention for Huntertown Arms, and I also know Thompson Machine in Florida is producing their "Thirty", which would work on those calibers. It is also user-serviceable. I have their 9mm "Isis", and I love it. The monocore is easily removed for simple cleaning.

    User-servicable is important and I like the monocore design, it seems stronger.

    Yes, you can use .308 suppressors on Russian 7.62 x XX rifle calibers.

    HTG makes a user servicable 30 cal suppressor as well.

    Would corrosive salts be hard to clean out of any can? All you would really need to do is rinse water through it and heat to dry. DI water would probably be best so no minerals are left behind.

    I'd give it the same cleaning as a rifle I'd shot corrosive through. Rinse well, scrub well, make sure nothing's left on it, check it again in a day or two to make sure.

    Im in no big hurry to shoot surplus corrosive amme threw a quality can like a 30p-1 but if I had a junker can that I wasnt worried about hurting Id put it in a Mosin Nagant for ****s and Grins, Corrosive or not.
