SureFire Awarded Additional SOCOM Contract For Muzzle Brakes And Suppressors


Fountain Valley, CA–SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest–and most innovative–illumination tools and tactical products, is proud to announce Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane posted an award for a $10 million contract to SureFire for “SUPPORT/SUSTAINMENT FOR MUZZLE BRAKES, AND SOUND SUPPRESSORS IN SUPPORT OF THE MK13 MOD 7 SNIPER RIFLE, 10.3 AND 14.5 M4A1 UPPER RECEIVER GROUP (URG)”. This is the second award based on the most rigorous and extensive suppressor selection in USSOCOM history.

SureFire SOCOM suppressors provide unmatched performance, reliability, and durability. Because they’re built for combat, in addition to providing impressive sound attenuation, these best-in-class suppressors also reduce muzzle blast; provide minimal and consistent point-of-impact shift; securely attach/detach with no tools; minimize gas blowback; and effectively reduce flash, including the virtual elimination of first round flash. Lightweight SOCOM suppressors don’t weigh down a weapon and are durable enough for full time use.

      I think your confusing muzzle device with muzzle brake! They’re not issuing warcomps, but as you read in the article, muzzle brakes!

        The description in the actual award specified flash hiders, “Award of a Firm-Fixed Price (FFP) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract on a sole source basis for Flash Hiders, Sound Suppressors and Blank Firing Adapters from Surefire, LLC, 18300 Mount Baldy Circle, Fountain Valley, CA 92708 U.S.A. for the Family of Muzzle Breaks and Suppressors (FMBS) supporting the MK13 Mod 7 sniper rifle.
