SilencerCo Releases Quietest .22 Suppressor to Hit the Market

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

WEST VALLEY CITY, UT – September 25, 2018 – SilencerCo has unveiled a new .22 suppressor that is aimed to silence the rimfire market and to commemorate the company’s 10-year anniversary.

The Switchback 22 allows users to choose between three lengths, with the long configuration optimized for either a pistol or rifle host. As the most versatile rimfire silencer ever developed, the Switchback 22 is the first to use rocket propulsion principles. This approach to engineering results in non-intuitive baffle reversal and reduces the sound report on a .22LR rifle to an unheard-of 108 dB (with subsonic ammunition).

SilencerCo is not new to creating modular products—they blazed the market on modularity with the Salvo 12 in 2014. Two years later the Osprey Micro 22 continued the legacy of modularity. SilencerCo then successfully launched the first and only integrally suppressed 9mm pistol on the market, the Maxim 9, which supports modularity with its short and long configurations.

“Gas flow can be sped up or slowed down by tapering a bore wider or tighter,” said Jake Turnblom, SilencerCo engineer. “Cones act as a nozzle (to speed up) or a diffuser (to slow down) gases in propulsion.The effect a cone has completely flips when transitioning to or from supersonic or subsonic velocities. Using cones (by flipping them) as supersonic diffusers is what led to the discovery of improved suppression on rifles.”

Finished in raw titanium with black nitride end caps and coupler, the Switchback 22 has a MSRP of $499 and can be configured into three sizes. On a rifle, the suppressor is hearing-safe in the shortest configuration of 2.5 inches with a weight of only 3.2 oz. The medium configuration is 3.59 inches and 4.3 oz, while the long is 5.75 inches and 6.5 oz.

SilencerCo dealers will have the chance to purchase the Switchback 22 from distributors starting today. If a customer is interested in getting their hands on one, they should reach out to their local FFL/SOT.

The Finest in American Made Leather Outerwear
D55A8DD1-B195-4DB9-B8BA-DBE4613710CA

Prometheus Design Werx debuts the Roam Jacket as part of their new Fall 2018 line up. Each jacket is individually handmade in San Francisco in partnership with a long established leather shop specializing in motorcycle police to biker club jackets. Using the finest premium grade, heavyweight suede hides sourced and tanned in the USA, lined in MILSPEC 5050 NYCO ripstop, and industrial grade brass snaps, the Roam Jacket is part trucker, cruiser and chore coat. Classic and timeless American styling, this suede jacket is made to be worn for a lifetime, and can be passed on to your kids. From open range to open road, the Roam Jacket has 7 pockets for all your EDC, will take on the patina and stories of the owner, and become a well worn, familiar friend. Goods that are built to last. Buy it for life.

FAB9551B-21EC-48C6-AEF5-948B109C3864

The Roam Jacket represents the best in American made goods and is a part of their Built in USA CORE-Line of products by Prometheus Design Werx. Available in sizes 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, and 46.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“Our company Founder Patrick has been designing outerwear for over 20 years. Jackets of many varieties have been a part of his design portfolio from almost the beginning of his career. And as an avid fan and rider of vintage motorcycles, he has been designing and using his own custom leather jacket designs for even longer. The personal relationship Patrick has had with the custom leather shop that makes PDW’s leather jackets extends to over 3 decades, and professionally for almost 2 decades. American made outerwear made by these legacy shops operate with a different ethos; wearable goods that are crafted and built to literally last a lifetime or more. The Roam Jacket is our first suede hide style and was inspired by the trucker and ranch styles made in the 1950s and 60s. Unlike the big box, mass market, thin-flimsy suede jackets, ours are made with all US materials, and of a quality and hide weight above all others. Each Roam Jacket is literally handmade with great pride in our home city. Beyond the classic heritage styling, this jacket has an updated cut for the modern man, and can be easily worn over a sweater-hoodie to a wool shirt. You can see in the photo the Roam Jacket being worn with our Fall ’18 wool Melton Woodsman Shirt and an upcoming version of our popular Raider Pant made in WWII dungaree-style USMC cotton herringbone twill.”

The PDW Roam Jacket will be available for purchase on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 12:00 Noon Pacific via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

CRO Pelvic Binder

Monday, September 24th, 2018

CRO Medical was started to identify, design and develop medical devices for combat medics. In January 2017, the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) introduced pelvic binding into the protocols due to the high instance of pelvic fractures from common battlefield injuries. 26% of service members that died in OEF/OIF had a pelvic fracture. If you follow the principles of good medicine, carrying a dedicated pelvic binder is an absolute necessity. With this kind of data to support routine pre-hospital pelvic binding, it goes as far as negligence if you don’t carry a binder.

The CRO Pelvic Binder, now FDA approved for commercial sale, went through at least eight versions before arriving at the production model. This design is based off a 5” wrap with a BOA dial for mechanical advantage. We decided to go with BOA due the extremely high tolerances on their hardware and proven track record of reliability. The binder can be placed by a single operator. Binding occurs over the greater trochanters and requires 33 lbs of force at a minimum to “close the book” on an open book pelvic ring fracture, but studies show that over-tightening with the BOA dial is not possible, so there is no risk of causing harm to the patient.

Recently, a third pary medical research group completed the first part of a multi-stage pelvic binding study focused on pelvic binding at point of injury for DoD medical providers. The study shows on a cadaver model, that the CRO binder is the fastest to apply and the preferred option compared to the SAM Pelvic Sling II and the T-POD pelvic binders for special operations medics. Data will be submitted to the Journal of Special Operations Medicine when complete. The CRO Pelvic Binder will be available on GSA and other DoD contract vehicles in the coming weeks.

Samson Releases US-Standard Thread Adapters for 9x19mm and 9x37mm AKs

Friday, September 21st, 2018

Keene, NH – Samson Manufacturing has just released their new AK thread adapter for 9×19 and 9×39 AK-type rifles with 14 x 1 LH threaded muzzles. Constructed from 17-4 stainless or 4140 carbon steel, these adapters are designed to fit standard thread ½ x 28mm 9mm suppressors to the AK pistols hitting the market.

These will also let 9×39 shooters run subsonic ammunition through their 9mm suppressors (if rated by the suppressor manufacturer).

Samson Chief Operating Officer Tim Mulverhill explained, “These 9mm AK pistols are coming in to the country with a variety of muzzle threads. Some are 1/2×28 and can take a standard 9-mil can without an adapter, and others have the 14×1 left-hand European AK thread which requires an adapter. Sometimes both thread pitches can be seen from the same manufacturer, depending on import lot. Our adapter solves this issue for shooters with the more common 14×1 muzzle thread”.

The Samson AK thread adapter indexes on the muzzle of the barrel, which provides a more uniform and tighter lockup than cheaper versions that index on the front sight base. Mulverhill explained that, “There are so many variables in AK manufacturing as far as muzzle threading and front sight base installation – even from multiple guns in the same manufacturing lot – that the most reliable way to maintain concentricity with the bore is to index off the muzzle. Our adapter does not contact the front sight base and is not intended to, which reduces any chance of baffle strikes from poorly fitting adapters. So long as your barrel threads are concentric to the bore, our adapter will maintain that alignment with your suppressor”.

Also available for 14×1 LH to 5/8x24mm applications, Samson AK Thread Adapters can be purchased at www.samson-mfg.com  and are available for immediate shipment.
