SHOT Show 17 – Gemtech Lunar -45

The Lunar-45 from Gemtech is a full-auto rated modular suppressor billed as “…the lightest and quietest modular 45 caliber silencer available that is able to be completely taken apart and cleaned.” Crafted from 7075 aluminum and titanium, the Lunar-45 can be configured into a 8.5″ long or 6.9″ short profile, and a variety of available mounting options will allow the Lunar-45 to be utilized with a multitude of weapons and calibers. The Lunar-45 features a high temperature black Cerakote finish, and comes with a .578-28 mount.

Gemtech tested the Lunar-45 mounted on a Dan Wesson Discretion 1911 using 230gr FMJ, and found when ran dry it produced a sound report of 129dB in the long configuration and 136dB in the short configuration. Solid numbers, and if real world results mimic performance found during testing, Genentech will have an excellent new product in their suppressor line.
