When I first started collecting silencers (currently have 18 stamps with 8 more pending) I wanted to standardize my muzzle breaks, I chose the DeadAir KyMo, because I figured I would want to move silencers between hosts. As I found which combinations I liked, that silencer never came off. Now I wish I had more direct thread silencers. There is less weight involved with the overall system, and you get less tolerance stacking. The last 30 cal silencer I got was an Energetic Armament VOXk (4.4" x 1.5" diameter, 9.9oz) I plan on putting it on my 20" 308 AR10 and leaving it there. If I do choose to move it, I have an extra KyMo sitting in the safe that can replace the DT insert.Other than costing a little less, is there any benefits to direct thread suppressors versus quick detach ones? I was looking at some Q LLC suppressors and a couple other manufacturers and was wondering why they'd even bother making direct thread ones if there wasn't some other upside since quick detach ones are only like 5% more. Is there some minor effect on accuracy? I tried to search around a bit and it seems a lot of people just suggest QD unless you really only have one particular rifle in mind for it. Also, how big of an impact is the suppressor length for shorter barrels and longer barrels respectively? I'm sure it makes a difference but do you all feel it's worth the extra length on the end to go for some ~7.5-8.5" can vs something like 6-6.5"?
