SureFire Shipping SOCOM260-TI & SOCOM260-RC2 Suppressors!

Wednesday, November 21st, 2018

Fountain Valley, CA—SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, is proud to announce the launch of two suppressors for 6 mm, 6.5 mm and .260 caliber weapon systems. First, SureFire’s exotic SOCOM260-Ti is extremely lightweight and quiet, best suited for bolt-action rifles where back pressure isn’t an issue. Next, the versatile SureFire SOCOM260-RC2 suppressor meets and exceeds the needs of 6mm,  6.5 Creedmoor and .260 caliber, semiautomatic rifles by utilizing the same technology that earned the SOCOM556-RC suppressor a victory in the harshest, most demanding suppressor trials in US Special Operations Command history.

SureFire’s SOCOM260-Ti is the lightest rifle-mount suppressor in the lineup, but if you want the best in noise attenuation, quality materials and precision craftsmanship, it’s a genuine heavy hitter. Of course, the Ti in the model name stands for titanium, and it should come as no surprise that SureFire employs only high-grade titanium alloy to produce a premium suppressor that weighs a mere 12 ounces while maintaining our strictest durability standards. But it isn’t just exotic materials that make the SOCOM260-Ti. Our engineers painstakingly crafted the SOCOM260-Ti’s  V-shaped baffles to optimize performance for maximum noise attenuation. Precision tolerances, strict attention to bore concentricity and suppressor alignment with our versatile Fast-Attach® mounting system combine to provide the best titanium suppressor available.

When designing the SOCOM260-RC2 suppressor, SureFire refused to use anything but the highest grade high-temperature alloys that are CNC laser-welded and uncompromisingly durable and better suited to the higher-round count abuse of precision gas-guns. Inside, SureFire’s advanced vented baffling reduces back pressure, so as to not affect the reliability of the gas operated weapons platforms this suppressor is intended to be used on. In addition, SureFire’s patented Fast-Attach® system makes attachment/removal of the suppressor quick and easy in any environment. The SOCOM260-RC2 incorporates the latest in manufacturing techniques and materials to produce a class-leading suppressor, delivering the utmost in sound attenuation and a tremendous reduction in flash and dust signature.

Built for consistent performance and a long service life, every SureFire suppressor is proudly made in the USA.

Griffin Armament – Paladin 5 Suppressor

Friday, November 2nd, 2018

The Paladin 5 is a user serviceable .22 – 250 rated .22 suppressor. It weighs just 12.5oz thanks to a combination of a 17-4 Stainless Steel body and 6AL4V Titanium components.

Griffin Armament claims the following sound levels:

• 16″ 5.56mm AR15 with nato ammunition measured 131db at the muzzle and 141db at the ear

• 22LR on a 3.5″ barrel pistol with CCI standard velocity measured 115db quieter than some 22 rimfire suppressors on the market.

• 22-250 Remington, at the ear on a bolt action rifle measured 128

“User serviceable rifle sound suppressors are becoming more and more popular and requested.  We have been fielding requests for them for probably the last 5 years with decent volume.  It’s not applicable to all end users as a lot of users don’t really shoot a lot.  But if you’re one of these guys that is on the range all the time or out on the back 40 shooting all the time it’s definitely really nice to have.  Depending on the ammo you’re using how dirty or clean the powder burn is etc,  how badly the twist in your barrel shaves copper off your bullets and throws molten lead in your suppressor… all of that adds up for people that shoot a lot.  What do we mean by a lot?, we’re talking thousands and thousands of rounds so it’s not needed for most people, but if you are a heavy shooter and you want to be able to clean the suppressor and set it back to factory specs, that’s a really nice feature.  Cans get heavier over time due to the carbon and copper deposits building up in the suppressor with use. And the Ratchet-lok™ end cap on the Paladin® suppressors makes them super easy to take apart and service but also ensures they stay together even under hard use.

Personally, I like them. The Paladin is right now my favorite series that we make. It’s definitely not the easiest suppressor to make but its its one of the best.  “

–Evan Green,  Business Development Manager Griffin Armament

It comes with a minimalist taper brake, assembly tool and pouch. For full details, visit www.griffinarmament.com/paladin-5-suppressor.

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.

2DD1EEBE-78F8-4790-81D5-4185288BC125

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).

1CB9D8B0-2115-4BB3-8C10-A425E1551741

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.

41B406B3-D308-4AE3-8DC2-671D3C5FB6B1

“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.”

8684CE9E-1201-457D-838B-DC5AE889FB38

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.
