SureFire Introduces The Quietest .30 Caliber Suppressor On The Market

Thursday, April 30th, 2015


Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-performance illumination tools, suppressors, and tactical products, has begun accepting orders for the latest model in its high-performance line of SOCOM Fast-Attach® sound suppressors. The new SOCOM300-SPS is the quietest suppressor ever built for 300 Black Out (subsonic and supersonic), .308 and 300 Win Mag. This versatile suppressor is also very effective in suppressing the 5.56mm cartridge.


The SOCOM300-SPS owes its sound-suppressing prowess to highly specialized baffles creating a longer dwell time within the suppressor and achieving unprecedented levels of sound attenuation. The suppressor is constructed of Inconel, an advanced high-temperature alloy, and stainless steel, and it typically adds only 6 inches to the length of a weapon. Computer-controlled welding enhances the suppressor’s overall durability, as does a corrosion-resistant coating of Ionbond DLC and Cerakote™ ceramic finish. In fact, the SOCOM300 SPS, like all SureFire SOCOM Series suppressors, is durable enough for full time use and designed to typically outlast the weapon barrel to which it attaches.


A precision indexing system ensures that the suppressor mounts to a compatible SureFire SOCOM series adapter—which also serves as a high-performance muzzle brake or flash hider when the weapon is unsuppressed—securely and with perfect alignment every time. This patented no-tools Fast-Attach system also makes the suppressor easy to remove after extended firing because the index tab is located in a low-carbon-buildup area. Like all SureFire SOCOM suppressors, the SOCOM300-SPS produces minimal and consistent point-of-impact shift compared with the unsuppressed weapon, regardless of the number of times the suppressor is attached and detached to and from the weapon.


The SOCOM300-SPS suppressor is available in two colors—Black and Dark Earth—and has an MSRP of $1075. It is available for purchase in states that allow suppressor ownership through authorized SureFire suppressor dealers. For complete product information visit: www.surefire.com/socom300-sps-2

Warrior West – Sneak Peek “The Dude”

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

One of the first things I was shown at this year’s ADS Inc Warrior West Expo at the San Diego Convention Center was this gun case. Its only marking was a decal from Stumpies Custom Guns. Located in Swansboro, NC, Stumpies is a small custom shop run by wounded warrior Marine EOD Vets amd well known to many.

The real surprise is once you get inside the case, and the story behind it. Named “The Dude”, this rifle will be raffled off later this year to raise funds for the EOD Warrior Foundation. The name derives from the nickname of a buddy of Stumpies owner, Brad Lang who was killed in action. As raffled, it will include everything you see here like the Leupold optic and Adams Industries night vision device as well as several other goodies not yet ready.

As you can see in this photo, the .308 AI action has been engraved with the rifle’s name.

You’ll be seeing a lot more of this gun. In fact, it’s scheduled to be a featured article in an upcoming issue issue of Harris Publications‘ Tactical Weapons magazine.
