Simply thread the silencer on until it is tight, and you are good to go. The second method is by way of some sort of muzzle device attachment. Usually, this mount is attached semi permanently to the muzzle of the host rifle and gives a consistent style of mount for the silencer. We sell silencers that use both types, and have found that each type has positives and negatives that are dependent on the customer's use case.
