Finally got the .50 BMG  M107A1, with a Suppressor
Got the trust, bought the package.
Should be here in a week, then how ever long it takes the paperwork to go through on the QDL suppressor.

Woohoo!!!!

Very cool. Never knew they made a suppressor for something that big

Sweet man...time to reach out and touch something!
Yeah the suppressor is ridiculous...nearly 2ft long and nearly 3" diameter.

How well does a suppressor work on a 50? Can it make it hearing safe or does it just make it sound like an unsuppressed AR or something?

Rumor has it its about 1/3 quieter.  There is a video out there shooting a .50 with a barrel as a suppressor and it still would likely pop your ear drums.
The nice thing about the Barrett suppressor is it also helps mitigate the recoil.

Thanks Tarosean,
It was a package take it or leave it deal, and didn't know much about Steiner. 
A bit of research and it appears to be a top quality product with a no questions asked lifetime warranty.
