Ok,
First off, so far this site has faired me very well in the build. so far so good.My thanks to all.

BUT

Now I have the hankering for a suppressor now that I have the fever

What would the thread pattern be for the barrel?

Also

what would some of you that have them suggest as a good beginner supressor.

thanks for any help

Chris

You might want to try the M16 - Full Auto forum.

I'm going to be getting Gem-Tech HALO in the coming months. It attaches directly to a mil-spec flash suppressor (A2 style). The typical thread pitch for 5.56 NATO barrels is 1/2x28.

That makes a lot of sense.
perhaps a 9MM upper is in the cards.

I have an Advanced Armament M4-2000 for my CAR-15 that I like a lot. It uses a proprietary flash hider as the quick mount; the flash hider screws onto the standard 1/2 x 28 AR threaded barrel.

I own two suppressors. Both are made by a local manufacturer here in Southeast, GA. One is in 9mm and the other is .223. I have been impressed with BOTH units. Although the .223 has a significant crack down-range from the supersonic bullets, it dramatically reduces the muzzle report.
As far as the 9mm goes.....Its qieter than the famed MP-5 SD, compared at the range! it is integrally suppressed, the best way to go IMHO. Use "subsonic" rounds either commercially produced or most 147gr rounds will suffice.
