OSS Introduces Radical Rimfire Suppressor – RAD 22

Wednesday, April 17th, 2019

Millcreek, UT – April 17, 2019   OSS Suppressors has introduced a new .22 suppressor that builds on their advanced Flow-Through™ technology to deliver unmatched performance for rimfire shooters.


The RAD 22 is built with OSS’s innovative Flow Baffle™ design. Based on patented Flow-Through technology, the Flow Baffle directs expanding gases away from the bore-line, and radial grooves route them forward through the suppressor and away from the shooter. This means it runs quiet and cleaner than other rimfire cans, and is easy to disassemble and reassemble without special tools or indexing.

Here’s what Tyler from The Bullet Points said:

“I was blown away by the Flow-Through technology, and the new RAD 22 is exactly that.

It’s RAD – and it’s very quiet and a blast shoot.”

RAD 22 specs:

• Delivers 115-119 dB performance at shooter’s ear on most rimfire rifles and pistols
• Made with titanium and 17-4 heat-treated stainless steel, and is 5.57” and 6.2oz
• Full-auto rated up to 5.7mm, has a lifetime warranty, and uses a ½ x 28 thread pitch to connect directly to the host firearm
• MSRP $449 / MAP $349 (Introductory Price ends Labor Day)
• Available for delivery in May.

Sneak Peak – MODTAC Insulated Handguard

Monday, March 25th, 2019

Modern Tactical Creations was founded by two SF NCOs to create solutions to problems found at the operator and team level. We’ve mentioned a few of their products including the Suppressor Shield.

They are currently working on an insulated Handguard which is an extension of their Suppressor Shield.

It is a carbon fiber construction which will minimize mirage, cool the barrel naturally, and protect the operator.

CMC Triggers Suppressed Optimized Bolt Carrier Group – Enhanced 223/556 AR15

Monday, March 25th, 2019

Last week, I got a few hours at the 10th Annual USASOC Sniper Competition At Fort Bragg’s famous Range 37. One of the companies I spoke with was CMC Triggers who showed me their new Suppressed Optimized Bolt Carrier Group – Enhanced 223/556 AR15. It is a new version of their Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group but intended for use with suppressed rifles. Some suppressor optimized BCGs are so tuned, they only run when a suppressor is presemt. This one eas designed to still work, even when the suppressor is removed.

The flared rear of the enhanced bolt carrier is designed to reduce carrier tilt/cant during recoil and increasing reliability by strategically relocating key bearing surfaces.

The Bolt is “true” Mil Spec dimension and external surfaces are CNC ground after heat treat for a precision fit. These bolts are held to the highest possible tolerance possible. The “trumpet” area behind the gas rings, where carbon normally collects, is precision CNC Ground after heat treatment, to ensure as smooth of an area as possible, easing clean up, and longevity.

• 9310 Case Hardened Steel
• All Bolt components Shot Peened & Black Nitride coated
• 4340 Steel, Manganese Phosphate coated
• Magnetic Particle Inspected (MPI) and High Pressure Tested (HPT)
• Black Nitride low friction coating
• Mil Spec Extractor Spring & O-Ring
• 556 223 and 300 Blackout Compatible

It features a Black Nitride Plus finish which you mave have also heard referred to as SBN (Salt bath nitride) and sometimes QPQ (quench polish quench). All of these are a form of nitrocarburizing which is a chemical hardening of steel.

Griffin Armament – EXPLORR

Friday, March 22nd, 2019

Unknown to many, Griffin Armament was a technology innovator in tubeless silencer design, developing the first commercially available tubeless suppressors in 2010, The Recce Series (gen 1).   Tubeless designs although relatively featureless compared to user serviceable or modular suppressors do have a unique advantage in that they can be made very lightweight and durable.  Deleting the outer tube helps reduce weight of the system but also imposes other engineering hurdles that have to be overcome.  Griffin, having a solid R&D background in tubeless suppressors, sought to push the limits of what was capable by creating the EXPLORR™ series.  The goal was to create dedicated rifle suppressors as light as possible, including the mounting system, that nearly matched the lightweight specifications common to full titanium suppressors.  Once the program was completed, the consumer could have the lightest weight products available with better than currently available material durability in the existing class. By accomplishing this product goal, a new class of suppressors was created. Truly Lightweight and durable rifle suppressors.

Austin, Primary Owner and lead design engineer at Griffin Armament stated,

“Dedicated suppressors still have a place in the market despite so much popularity surrounding modular cans.  Modular cans are neat, but they are typically a jack of all trades stand in solution for consumers venturing into silencer ownership for the first time.  Once that user realizes the benefits of shooting a suppressor on a variety of their firearms, they usually look for more dedicated product options to fit certain interests in their shooting hobby.  This is the point where the consumer becomes very critical of performance, features, function, and price. We aim to offer a suppressor product for every consumer regardless of our own personal interests. Many people are satisfied with a modular or universal type suppressor, but most find themselves wanting to expand their collection once they get their first experience with suppressors.  The EXPLORR™ series was designed to provide users with the lightest, most accurate, and durable suppressors on the market, hands down.  You’ll find a host of special features on some of our cans, but the EXPLORR™ is a bit stripped down in terms of features but is packed in terms of weight specs and performance. This can family is designed for guys who love shooting rifles with cans. We’re excited to launch the EXPLORR™ and believe it will help keep Griffin at the forefront of suppressor offerings.  As always, I’d like to say thank you to all our great customers, without them we wouldn’t be able to have careers that we love. So thank you.”

OSS Now IWI Official Suppressor

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

IWI Feels the Difference with OSS

Millcreek, UT – OSS Suppressors LLC is proud to announce that IWI, the international firearm manufacturer of the innovative and legendary TAVOR®, X95® and GALIL® rifles has officially endorsed OSS and will carry our line of Helix products as one of their official suppressors.


Extensive testing with the OSS products – including sound levels, flash suppression, and durability – preceded IWI’s decision.  A critical influence on their decision was how the OSS product did not affect the performance of IWI’s weapon systems.  For example, when tested with OSS suppressors, the TAVOR and X95 rifles produced some of the quietest decibel levels at the shooters ear IWI had seen.  They truly felt the difference. 


OSS 5.56 and 7.62 IWI suppressors can now be purchased direct from IWI.  They come coated with custom dark grey, high-temperature C-Series Cerakote® and the IWI logo engraved on the can.

Enforce Tac 19 – H&K SFP9 OR SD

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

German manufacturer Heckler & Koch displayed the SFP9 OR SD at Enforce Tac. It is a striker fired 9mm pistol. Most of you are probably comfortable with the SD designation indicating suppressed, but you may not be familiar with the OR suffix which stands for Optics Ready.

In this case, the slide was equipped with a Delta Point Pro by Leuplod Optics. It also featured a flared mag well.

This Impuls-IIA Compact Suppressor was produced by Switzerland’s Brugger & Thomet specifically for sale by H&K.

ASE UTRA: Data Sheets for the New DUAL Suppressors

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

As promised last week, here are the datasheets and pictures for the new suppressor models which will be displayed at Enforce Tac and IWA.

You could say they feature a flow through design and they are the result of a long product development project and are the best models we have ever developed for assault rifles.

The DUAL556-BL model features minimal ( less than 10% ) addition in bolt carrier speed across different 5.56 weapon types and barrel lengths. The higher end of 20% is only see with extremely short barreled weapons such as the HK G36C with less than 9″ barrel. On this weapon the more traditional suppressor types have 40-50% increase. Data sheet is available at Ase Utra DUAL 556-BL suppressor.


The DUAL762-BL model features c. 5-20% increase across different barrel lenths and weapon types. Data sheet is available at Ase Utra DUAL762-BL suppressor.

Why do they not feature 0% addition on all weapons and barrel lengths? This would greatly compromise not only the sound suppression but also flash suppression on these compact suppressor models.

Due to the design they also feature reduced first round flash and virtual elimination of the muzzle flash on the following rounds.

They are manufactured from 300 series stainless steel and feature a very robust construction.

The DUAL556-BL can pass the U.S. SOCOM Suppressed Upper Receiver Group (SURG) tender stress test requirement with an eight 30 round magazine cycle with a specific rate of fire.

The suppressors feature our proven BoreLock mounting system, a simple but very secure mounting system that also allows easy suppressor removal after extended firing. The mounting system does not allow the fouling to enter beyond the tapered alignment surface.
