SureFire Responds To Competitor Suppressor Video

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Fountain Valley, CA — Recently, a suppressor manufacturer released a video showing what they claimed to be a “government agency test,” in which their suppressor outperformed the SureFire SOCOM556-RC suppressor. In response to this so-called “government agency test” video, SureFire would like to make clear to the public that the test in this competitor’s video was not a test conducted by SOCOM or any other government agency. The test was conducted in-house by the manufacturer of the competing suppressor, with a few members of the Military and Government in attendance. Additionally, the exact opposite results were obtained in actual SOCOM testing in which the competitor’s suppressor was evaluated alongside a SureFire SOCOM556-RC. In this test, the competitor’s suppressor failed, whereas the SureFire suppressor completed the test without incident or causing malfunctions of the MK18.

SureFire suppressors are proven performers and have been in use with military special operations forces, government agencies, and law enforcement all over the world with excellent results and feedback. This video appears to be nothing more than an attempt by the video’s producers to manipulate and mislead the public and potential government end-users. That said, we at SureFire take it as a compliment that a competitor would go to such lengths to attempt to disparage our product. Combine this with the unmatched loyalty of our customers, and we see this as nothing more than confirmation that SureFire remains the industry leader.

For those of you looking for some context, this SureFire press release is in response to a video (OSS vs. Best-in-Class SOCOM Baffle Suppressor Torture Test) released last week by Operator Suppressor Systems. You can check the video out on at the bottom of the landing page.

SOFIC – SureFire Dual Switch Tail Cap

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

This is the long anticipated Dual Switch (DS-07) from SureFire. It works with any Scout light and was designed specififcally for an Army requirement. It incorprates both remote tape switch as well as integrated button.  Thanks to the Vampire family of lights, it offers both white and IR light without the use of a filter. In this case, it’s a M350V. This configuration offers weight savings over redundant lights or use of a filter.

SOFIC – Suppressed Optimized Bolt Carrier Group-Long Stroke from SureFire

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Not long ago I saw a BCG bearing the SureFire logo. I thought it was a pretty example of laser engraved branding but didn’t realize that it was actually an entirely new product called the Suppressed Optimized Bolt Carrier Group-Long Stroke. It consists of a Bolt Carrier Group, Buffer and Action Spring.

I know that’s quite a name but the new SOB-556-LS from SureFire was designed to improve reliability of suppressed AR-style weapons, particularly during full auto fire.

One major update to this BCG is the spring loaded counterweight visible at the back of the carrier. It helps slow things down a bit with the components all working together to minimize bolt bounce during full auto fire. Ultimately, it all results in more dwell time to the rear for the BCG, giving the magazine 30% more time to load before the weapon has completed cycling.

As you can see, the Black buffer of the SOB-556-LS is .4″ shorter than a Mil-Spec buffer. However, SureFire has developed different buffer weights based in your gas setup.

There is also a new action spring which is slightly longer than the Mil-Spec version and also made from a narrower gauge material. You’ll also note that it features a red marking on the end to denote it is different from the Mil-Spec spring.

Currently undergoing government evaluation, these should be available soonish.
