    I wouldn't want a serviceable rifle can. It'd just make it heavier and not as strong. You really don't need to clean them, shooting supers through them is all that's needed to keep them going. Just don't pump rimfire or lead projectiles through them and you'll be fine. Even pistols cans don't really need cleaned. Rimfire is about it.

    I wouldn't recommend investing in the SRD can unless you get one for stupid cheap like I did. The QD mount supply has been slim to none here lately, especially the 762 1/2-28 mounts. I think these cans have been out for quite some time now. Nyle was right about the new cans, I got an email yesterday from Sig with their new 2020 catalog and they have revamped their rifle and pistol caliber suppressors. All new suppressors and all new mounts.

    That being said, I am more than happy with my SRD762ti-QD suppressor and have more mounts than I probably need, so if I run across another crazy good deal on a 2nd one I'll probably get it. I have not experienced any accuracy issues like previously mentioned, but that's just my experience and YMMV.

    Silencerco ASR mounts have been hit or miss for the past few months now, have a lot of friends running .338 5/8x24 on .30 cal rifles and 9mm 1/2x28 on 5.56 cause trying to find the "correct" pairing has been impossible the past few months....and the ASR mount isn't going any where. Sometimes mounts just dry up for a little bit (Gemtech bi lock and some cheaper AAC 51T mounts come to mind too)

    I bet Sig will continue to make those mounts or at least for a while so a good supply will be available. I have a couple Silencerco Sakers and Silencerco flat out said they don't plan on making any more Saker mounts so what's out there is out there

    Thanks all... that's super helpful with understanding the service life and etc. Now just to figure out the thread pitch on this barrell... would prefer a direct thread vs QD mount.

    Another advantage of the Sig system: Tubeless design. So if there's a mishap / baffle strike - all that's needed to repair it is to chop off the damaged bits and re-weld new baffles onto it. Done by Sig, of course. There's no outter tube to be destroyed - which means the whole can is now useless. On Sig cans, the serial # is etched into the exterior of the blast baffle - highly unlikely to sustain a baffle strike. I do not believe Sig is the only one doing this, either.

    And you can get Sig cans in either direct-thread or QD.

    What gun and caliber? Unless it's a comblock gun or big bore it'll be either 1/2×28 or 5/8×24

    Sealed cans are the preferred centerfire can. It takes millions of slow for rounds to fill one up.
    Not saying you’re wrong, but such has not been my experience with my Sig can. I shot the best group of my life with it, a 5 shot .35moa group. Seems accurate to me.

    There are multiple threads on it over at sh. Some sig cans may be better than others but they are basically blacklisted by the prs crowd. A picky lot, but when you're spending near thunderbeast money you expect that precision.

    I think I'd be having a conversation with Sig if my can was causing major accuracy issues like what you're saying. I'm definitely not seeing those issues with mine.

    *my one flier with the 62gr Hornady was user error before anyone attempts to blame the suppressor

    It was conversation that got posted from sig that sparked some rage. They refused warranty repair and called it a poi issue. Said it was normal for groups to open with a suppressor
