    I was at my LGS the other day, trying to pick the perfect Suppressor...
    The guy showed me a Rebel 44 and it seems like a "good" all-around option.
    If you haven't seen it, it's modular!
    Add/subtract baffles, different threads all in one.
    I know it has to be a compromise but is it useful for the average/occasional suppressed shooter?
    And, it's reasonably priced!

    Your $0.02 please?

    Tfb did a review some time back on one of their cans had severe erosion after 19 rounds.

    Maybe they have changed since then, but they don't seem to have a long service life worked into the design

    Thanks!
    I'll look for that review.
    I found a couple on YouTube but they only addressed sound not, durability.

    Interesting read...
    Maybe "one size fits all" & low price aren't what I'm looking for?

    I do have 2 as a dealer (22 Lr and 30 cal). They were very cheap in cost but the first ones that I have ever owned. I have a 223 on order again just because I could get it at a great price. These are marked not for resale. I have run the 22 LR on a 1911-22 and the 30 cal. on a 300 BO so I have not pushed them to their limits as far as rating goes. They do work. The first time ever shooting them was in an indoor range without hearing protection I have had no baffle strikes. When I talk to Rebel they said that they have redesigned their cans because of problems they had.
    Now for the question are they worth the price and the answer is YES but I am not sure I would pay the $200 tax stamp and the 10 to 11 month wait. I am waiting on a Dead Air that I will have in the trust and pay the tax stamp.
