SIG Range Day 19 – MOD X-9 and X-45 Suppressors

Sunday, January 20th, 2019

For 2019, SIG has introduced the 3D printed MOD X-9 and X-45 Suppressors which are user configurable.

Featuring Titanium construction, the only steel component are the piston housing, piston and spring.

The suppressors are 7-3/4″ for 9mm and 9-1/4″ for .45 out of the box.

The look of the body is actually functional. SIG has developed a tool to tighten, or loosen pesky baffles. Below you can see performance based on configured length.

Hush Puppy Project Brings Back Hush Puppy Pistols, Silencers and Ammunition

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

The Hush Puppy Project®, in conjunction with Super Vel ammunition, will be releasing a Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 9mm based pistol featuring a patent pending Slide Locking Device (SLD) at SHOT show 2019.  To take full advantage of the locked breech capabilities of the pistol, a new silencer design (the Model 1) featuring modular components and hybrid technology will be released at the same time.  The pistol and silencer have been specifically tuned to provide maximum signature reduction with Super Vel’s Hush Puppy 147 grain FMJ subsonic ammunition.

Hush Puppy’s® M&P 2.0 pistol can be fired in semi-automatic or locked breech mode.  With the SLD engaged, the slide is restricted from cycling, thus eliminating all mechanical sounds of the gun and directing all gasses through the silencer. The original use of a slide lock device was on the Mk 22 Mod 0 pistol fielded by the U.S. Navy SEALs in Vietnam; it was also based on a S&W pistol (Model 39) and was commonly known as the “Hush Puppy.”  In addition to a Hush Puppy® slide lock device, the M&P pistol comes with a factory threaded barrel and factory suppressor height sights.

Available separately, but designed for, the Hush Puppy® pistol is a modular silencer of novel design incorporating both mono core- and wipe-style sound reduction systems. This hybrid design is comprised of three modules and is called the Hush Puppy® Model 1 silencer. The modular design allows for the silencer to be shot in multiple configurations including a hearing safe K configuration and multiple dry and wet wipe configurations for maximum sound reduction.  This unparalleled modularity has been dubbed “Tunable Technology” and allows the shooter to tailor the silencer to varying levels of size, weight and sound reduction based on their needs.  

Lastly, the Hush Puppy Project’s sister company, Super Vel Ammunition®, manufactured the original subsonic Mark 144 9mm Luger ammunition for the Mk 22 Mod 0 pistol from 1967 to 1973.  Building on this experience, the modernized Hush Puppy® pistol and Model 1 silencer are designed to function best with Super Vel’s Hush Puppy 147 gr. FMJ subsonic ammunition.  Also available is a special purpose 115 grain subsonic EXPANDING Solid Copper Hollow Point loading for the Model 1 K can configuration (not for use with the Model 1 wipe modules).

Hush Puppy Project products will be exclusively distributed by Lipsey’s.  Come see the new products at Super Vel’s SHOT show booth 1720 or at Lipsey’s booth 11329. Hush Puppy® is a registered trademark. The Hush Puppy Project® and Lipsey’s are based in Baton Rouge, La. www.hushpuppyproject.com   info@hushpuppyproject.com

The AAC Jaeger, Not Just a Silencer but an Experience Enhancer

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Huntsville, AL – The Jaeger 30 was designed to provide hunters with superior sound and recoil reduction when used on single-shot or bolt action rifles chambered up to 300 Win Mag.


The Jaeger 30 features a Grade 9 Titanium mount and blast chamber.  The outer tube and monolithic core are machined from 7075 T6 Aluminum.  The black anodized Titanium mount is the strongest component of the silencer, it carries the serial number and data panel.  The 5/8-24 threads of the Jaeger 30 are compatible with the majority of .30 caliber hunting rifles found in today’s marketplace.  The 7075 T6 Aluminum tube and monocore are finished with Type 3 hard coat anodize.


The Jaeger 30 can reduce to below 140 dB the sound pressure that results from the discharge of some of today’s most popular 30-caliber cartridges (e.g. 300 WM, 308 WIN, and 300 BLK)*. All this is accomplished by only adding 13.9 oz and 9 inches to your rifle’s overall length. The Jaeger 30 truly packs a lot of performance into a small, lightweight, and affordable package.

*Sound pressure level may vary based on various factors including but not limited to caliber, barrel length, and ammunition selection.



Thunder Beast Arms Corp Announces 338 Ultra SR

Wednesday, January 9th, 2019

We are pleased to announce the new 338 ULTRA SR suppressor. This is the first suppressor to feature our “SR” mount. The SR mount is our “QD” style mount that maintains the absolute accuracy and repeatability standards we are known for while offering more rapid mounting and removal and featuring a Secondary Retention (“SR”) or “Locking” collar. This mount meets the mil spec represented in the 2017 Advanced Sniper Rifle (ASR) solicitication, and the 338 ULTRA SR is the suppressor that Accuracy International North America chose for their ASR rifle system submission.

The main feature of the SR mount is that it acts as a secondary, fail-safe, locking mechanism to retain the suppressor on the muzzle brake in all circumstances, unless explicitly removed on purpose, by hand. It also reduces the number of turns required to mount the suppressor due to a coarser thread and enables “Quick Mount” and “Quick Detach” functionality of the mount. The mount is mechanically very simply and user-level maintenance is possible.


The SR mount uses a novel paw and cam-path system to ensure that “full lock up” can happen in either of the two adjacent detent slots for any given final shouldering position of the suppressor on the conical brake shoulder. This categorically avoids the “off by one” problem that many “clicky” mounts have. The SR mount has the exact same accuracy, repeatability, and return-to-zero characteristics that all our precision suppressors are known for.

This mounting system is covered by US Patent 9,791,234.

For more details, please visit the 338 ULTRA SR Product Page.

The 338 ULTRA SR will be offered for sale starting the first morning of the 2019 SHOT Show (Jan 22nd). We will not accept orders, pre-orders, or backorders until then. We have a considerable stock of these available but after that initial stock is depleted, additional orders will be subject to our normal production backlog.

CGS Group Incorporates Interchangeable Front Caps On Hyperion 762 and Helios 556 Rifle Silencers

Monday, December 24th, 2018

CGS Group is incorporating interchangeable front caps into Hyperion 762 and Helios 556 rifle silencers for 2019. But these aren’t just normal front caps. Due to the unique construction and signature suppression methods used in the CGS Hyperion Tech, which they claim “has actually neva bin fun befo”, by using different types of front caps the user can change the function of the silencer entirely. Use the flat cap to have the quietest rifle silencer ever produced on a bolt gun where back pressure and gas in the shooters face isn’t a concern. For a semi auto rifle host, if the user feels that the already low back pressure design of the default flat cap config isn’t enough, the user can easily install a perforated front cap which vents excess gas into the atmosphere while still being hearing safe for the shooter.

So to put it simply, function swappable front caps, and effectively two types of silencers in one simple, strong, concentric package. The vented front cap have pictured here acts as a flash hider not only for the bore, but also for the peripheral vents. There are multiple types of front caps which have different features depending on what the user is looking for in a can.

All front caps sit on a taper so they don’t come loose but will maintain concentricity. We’ve had these for quite a while but it was never shown publicly before. Patented and multiple patents pending. CGS Group promises more details to follow after SHOT Show.

Modern Tactical Creations – Suppressor Shield

Thursday, December 20th, 2018

Modern Tactical Creations was founded by two SF NCOs to create solutions to problems found at the operator and team level. In the past we have mentioned their Chemlight Cache and Antenna Keeper. This time, we’re showing you the Suppressor Shield.

The Modtac Suppressor Shield fits over a Suppressor and is designed to minimize mirage, cool the suppressor naturally, and protect the operator.

• The employment of an air gap and carbon fiber reduce the observed surface temperature up to 50%.
• The low thermal conductivity of carbon fiber reduces the “felt” surface temperature to a point that is safer for incidental contact, even at extreme suppressor temperatures.

• Solid top design eliminates mirage along the length of the suppressor.
• Carbon fiber’s low thermal transfer rate reduces mirage causing exposed outer surfaces.

• Spacers create an air gap that does not trap heat like a fabric/silicone suppressor wrap.
• Vent design promotes air flow around the suppressor.

• Mechanical attachment holds tight through heat expansion and heavy recoil.
• Suppressor can be removed without removing the shield first.

Available in six lengths, the Suppressor Shield is offered in Natural (Carbon Fiber), Coyote Tan or OD Green.
