SureFire Suppressor Division Awarded NSNs

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is pleased to announce that NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) have been assigned to the SOCOM556-RC2 Suppressor and three different SureFire muzzle devices for 5.56 mm rifles.

SOCOM556-RC2 / NSN 1005-01-668-4190

Hold the Objective. Attach the SOCOM556-RC2 to any 5.56 mm weapon system with a minimum barrel length of 10 inches, and you will. The RC2 showcases our USSOCOM contract-winning know-how in cutting-edge suppressor design, and incorporates the latest in manufacturing techniques and materials to produce the most exceptional tool of its kind. Count on it to deliver the utmost in sound, flash and dust signature reduction. Precision-built of advanced Inconel alloys and stainless steel, and CNC laser-welded for uncompromising durability, the RC2 features unique internal baffling that reduces backpressure and sound, matching supreme accuracy with extreme quiet when compared to an unsuppressed weapon. It’s the best overall suppressor in any environment.

WARCOMP-556-1/2-28 / NSN 1005-01-646-9074

Choose the Best of Both Worlds. Flash hider? Muzzle brake? The proprietary design of SureFire’s WARCOMP flash hiders/suppressor adapters provides the best attributes of both devices. WARCOMPs deliver superior flash reduction and significantly reduce muzzle rise, helping to conceal your location, preserve your dark-adapted vision and keep you on target for faster follow-up shots. They effectively eliminate more than 98% of all muzzle flash, even on short-barreled rifles, and their port direction can be optimized for virtually any shooting style. Precision-machined from U.S. mill-certified, heat-treated stainless steel bar stock, every WARCOMP includes high-precision single-point cut barrel threads for optimum thread interface. DLC coating provides maximum protection under harsh environmental conditions and facilitates cleaning even after extreme use. Surefire WARCOMPs are the best suppressor adapters in the world. Period.

SF3P-556-1/2-28 NSN 1005-01-626-8770

Hide Your Position. SureFire’s advanced SF3P three-prong flash hiders deliver superior performance with a patent-pending design that greatly reduces muzzle flash — typically greater than 99% — when compared with a plain muzzle. Available for use with a variety of rifle calibers and muzzle thread specs, they are precision-machined from U.S. mill-certified heat-treated stainless steel bar stock and DLC-coated to resist erosion for consistent high performance. SF3P flash hiders feature robust tines built to withstand the rigors of combat, and every SF3P is carefully inspected for concentricity and alignment, ensuring a rock-solid mounting surface for SureFire SOCOM Series Fast-Attach® suppressors.

SFMB-556-1/2-28 NSN 1005-01-668-7486

Reign Over Recoil. SureFire SFMB muzzle brake suppressor adapters greatly reduce both recoil impulse and muzzle rise so that your weapon tracks straight back, keeping you on target for faster shot-to-shot recovery. Our proprietary Impulse Diffusion design minimizes side blast and rear-directed concussion effects. Precision machined from U.S. mill-certified heat-treated stainless steel bar stock and DLC-coated for extreme durability, they are available for a variety of weapon calibers and muzzle thread specs, and every SFMB serves as a rock-solid mounting adapter for SureFire’s combat-proven SOCOM Series Fast-Attach® suppressors. The SFMB design incorporates multiple bearing surfaces to ensure superior suppressor alignment. Blind pilot holes at the 3 o’ clock and 9 o’clock positions enable fine-tuning of recoil characteristics for individual shooting styles or ammunition characteristics. Blind pilot holes at the 6 o’clock position enable indexing the adapter at the bottom dead center. All that’s required is a basic hand drill and appropriate drill bits.

Slide Lock Patent Granted To Hush Puppy Project LLC

Thursday, August 15th, 2019


On August 13, 2019, The U.S. Patent Office granted US Patent No. 10,378,838 to the Hush Puppy Project for its Slide Lock Device (“SLD”). Hush Puppy Project is a Louisiana-based manufacturer of suppressors, pistols and ammunition “dedicated to the art and science of small arms signature reduction.” US Patent No. 10,378,838 is directed to a mechanism that converts a semiautomatic pistol’s self-loading system to a single-shot locked breech mechanism, thus eliminating the mechanical sound of the slide cycling, the emission of noise from the ejection port (“port pop”) and collateral sound from brass hitting the ground while allowing the suppressor to achieve maximum efficiency. With the SLD disengaged, the pistol may still be fired in normal semiautomatic mode.


“Our new SLD patent covers the mechanism that converts a Glock pistol to function in locked breech mode, thus making for the quietest shot possible, especially when combined with the Hush Puppy Model 2 wipe silencer and Super Vel Mk 144 subsonic ammunition.” said Brad Gilpin, Hush Puppy Project president.

The Hush Puppy Project currently manufactures two brands of pistols with SLDs, Glock 19 Gen 5 and S&W M&P 2.0 as well as two suppressors, the Model 1 and Model 2. Super Vel Ammunition, a sister company of the Hush Puppy Project, manufactures subsonic 9mm ammunition as part of the Project’s “systems approach” to sound reduction.


Hush Puppy Project guns, suppressors and ammunition are available exclusively from Lipsey’s, a firearms wholesaler servicing stocking gun dealers. Military and Law Enforcement customers are manufacturer direct. The Hush Puppy Project is located in Baton Rouge, La.

Sneak Peek – Developmental Maxim 9 Non-NFA from SilencerCo

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

This is a developmental pistol from SilencerCo, with an action based on the Maxim 9. Its fixed barrel and proprietary delay system, push the gas forward, so it is created specifically to run with a detachable suppressor.

For those of you slow on the uptake, this pistol is not integrally suppressed. In this case, it features an attached Omega 9K.

Nonreciprocating front sight. Booster not required. Picatinny rail.

Here’s a comparison shot with the NFA Maxim9.

SureFire Shows Us Why Signature Reduction Is A Priority

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, has launched a new video highlighting one factor for consideration when purchasing a suppressor. In this video, SureFire VP of Suppressors and Weapons Barry Dueck, and SureFire Director of Product Management for Suppressors and Weapons Cody Carroll, demonstrate the USASOC Operator Suppressor System Durability Test to compare the performance of the SureFire SOCOM556-RC2 suppressor against a competitor’s low back-pressure suppressor.

SureFire’s philosophy has always been that durability, signature reduction, accuracy, repeatability and sound suppression are the most important factors to consider when evaluating a suppressor design for combat or duty use. In this video, we are addressing the issue of flash signature by comparing the SOCOM556-RC2 to a low-back pressure competitor. Our combat-proven and US Special Operations Command selected series of suppressors eliminate the first-round flash phenomenon and continue to suppress flash signature through continuous firing, be it is semi-auto, pairs, bursts or full-auto. Built for consistent performance and a long service life, every SureFire suppressor is proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.

It should be noted that the USASOC Operator Suppressor System Durability test is torturous to the host firearm, however one can experience the reults in the video in a much shorter round count or abbreviated version of the test.

Warrior EAST 19 – Mad Minute Suppressors

Friday, July 12th, 2019

Mad Minute Suppressors is a relative newcomer to the suppressor market. They claim their new design suppresses sound, flash, heat, pressure, recoil, gas and particulates. It’s also one suppressor for multiple calibers, offering at least sub 140 dB performance. They also claim a POI shift of two MOA suppressed vs unsuppressed.

The key to their Tempest Series design are the internal turbines which rotate. All gas is pushed forward, out the front of the suppressor. They also claim that their “heat sink” technology results in a cooler suppressor and weapon.

As you can see, it can be broken down and cleaned by the operator.
