QUESTION: Guy's I obviously have an M1A, but I also have an AR chambered in 7.62x39 with a bull barrel with 5/8 X 24tpi

Is it possible to have one suppressor for both ?.

Would You 'drill out' the ends of a 308Dia suppressor to 312 +Dia to accommodate both rifles ?

Is the 5/8x24 tpi gonna trip me up or do the adapters for M1A have that size ?

Do I need to buy 2, one suppressor for each rifle ?

Your opinions would be appreciated.

I would think the "ends" of the can are already over the .311 diameter, aren't most cans at +/- .040 of bullet diameter??

.30 caliber rifle suppressor BAFFLE HOLES tend to be .338 on the low end (very unlikely, but I suspect some use this) to around (more likely) .350/.358.

.22 = .240 (very unlikely) to around .272

the difference between .308 and .3105 (which is 90%+++ of 7.62X39 bullets) is pretty much meaningless. the hole(s) needs to be large enough to prevent a baffle strike.
