Cut through the noise with The Suppressor Handbook from Gun Digest!

In The Suppressor Handbook, author and gunsmithing guru Patrick Sweeney quickly brings you up to speed with "just the facts" that you need to know about suppressors.

  • Cost: How much should you pay, and what unexpected costs could you run into?
  • Composition: How are they made, and why should you care?
  • Caliber: Figure out what you need, especially if you might want to use your suppressor on more than one gun.
  • Connection: Get pros and cons of the various installation methods from an authority on the subject.
