SilencerCo Harvester Suppressors

New from SilencerCo are the Harvester and Harvester Big Bore suppressors. Both are designed with hunting and long range shooting in mind. As a long-time suppressor hunter (both rimfire and centerfire) I recommend suppressors to hunters wherever it is legal for them to be used. The public have been taught to believe suppressors give hunters an unfair advantage, but this is far from the truth. Unless you are hunting with subsonic ammunition, the bullet will hit the game long before the game hears the gunshot. The benefits to hunters is safer shooting with less risk of injury to their hearing, less recoil and less chance of annoying anyone living nearby (or even far away in mountainous terrain).

From the press release …

SilencerCo is pleased to announce the launch of the Harvester and Harvester Big Bore suppressors. With a focus on hunting and long-range precision shooting applications these two suppressors are lightweight, tough, and accurate.

Utilizing its lightweight design, the Harvester is barely noticed on the end of your barrel. Designed to enhance your shooting experience, the Anchor Brake offers best-in-class recoil reduction across a range of calibers. Using modular thread adapters, the Harvester can be used on a wide range of threaded barrels.

The Harvester Big Bore encapsulates all the features of the Harvester, but adds the capability to allow the use of a modular adapter to utilize various mounting options. From direct thread to Patented ASR mounting applications, the Harvester Big Bore has your needs covered.

The modular thread adapters make the Harvester and Harvester Big Bore an excellent choice for a variety of shooting disciplines. Utilizing fully-welded hardened tool-grade stainless steel baffle design, the Harvester and Harvester Big Bore are among the lightest centerfire silencers available. Rated for magnum calibers up to, and including 300 Winchester Magnum (minimum of 24″ barrel) and .338 Lapua™ respectively.

The Harvester is shipping now, with the Big Bore version in production and shipping in Q2.

    Good report I really like suppressors.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Straight what the hell is with their selection of hunting footage!? Product looks great, but I’d can’t belive they were that dumb to put literally wounding animals in their footage. Yea that happens, but you don’t SHOW that in your ad!

    • Hunting isn’t all sunshine and roses.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Yea… Of course… But you know what should be all sunshine and roses? Proper advertising.

        • Patrick

          None of those animals were “wounded”. They were all good clean kill shots. Animals rarely ever die right there on the spot unless shot in the head and a head shot is ill advised. There is nothing wrong with anything in this video.

        • I am going to assume that you do not hunt very much.

          • RoninTheDog

            Maybe he does, maybe he doesn’t, but in my state there’s regs and items on the test about, for lack of a better term being respectful about the kill in regards to the public at large.

            There’s nothing inherently *wrong* about the video. But watching animals hop around in pain as they die set to awesome chugging grimdark metal music can still be in poor taste.

          • iksnilol

            Nothing dies instantly and quietly. Everything will trash around as it expires.

            But I agree, bad taste to put music like that to a hunting video. Killing isn’t glamorous and shouldn’t be enjoyed (not saying that you shouldn’t enjoy hunting)

        • Steve (TFB Editor)

          I agree with Jump, you don’t often see ‘realistic’ footage in hunting ads. Most hunting publications even have strict rules regarding bloody footage and photos. Usually heads shots are banned for publication … nobody likes to see a moose missing 1/4 of its skull.

          Not that it offends me in anyway. Just sayin’ is all.

      • That’s for sure. What we shooters need to remember is a lot of hunters shoot once a year and come out of the larger cities without a clue.

      • Jacqueshacques

        One of the things it always pays to remember is that when you make an ad, the people you want to target aren’t the only people who see it. Reality or not, I’d imagine the last thing this company would want is to have people passing this around on the internet as if it showed a bunch of BLOOD-CRAZED KILLERS WOUNDING ANIMALS WITH SILENT SNIPER RIFLES AND OH MY GOD ONE OF THEM IS A CHILD

  • weasle 94

    I would like a suppressor for my rimfire in 1/2 X 24 threads . I live in SW Virginia . Can anyone tell me the hoops I must jump through to get one? Thanks

    • Steve Truffer

      Find one, contact the seller, go through the NFA forms, pay the $200 tax, and wait for the ATF to return your papers.

    • MZupcak

      …unless that “94” at the end of your name means you were born in 1994, then (unless you’ve had your birthday already this year, happy birthday if you have) you need to wait until you’re 21 years old.

    • What Steve said below. You can get on the ATF website and download the forms. Cost of the suppressor will range from around $500–$800 for a decent one that will last.
      You send the forms in with your $200 and sit back and wait as much as 8 months and if you’re lucky 3 months. They are way behind on processing applications because of all the panic buying the first of last year.
