SPRINGFIELD, MA., (1/16/2023) – Gemtech®, a leader in cutting-edge innovation and visionary designs within the suppressor industry, is proud to introduce the mid-length GVACTM Upper Receiver Group.

The Gemtech GVAC is a complete upper assembly optimized for suppressed shooting.

Its newly designed 16.1-inch barrel profile transfers weight back toward the chamber to improve control and is fitted for Gemtech’s proprietary flash hider, the ETMTM (Elite Taper Mount), which provides precise alignment and helps resist carbon lock.

The GVAC has a self-regulating Direct-Impingement system that includes an additional chamber to collect and counter the gases that can add recoil when shooting suppressed. The assembly is protected inside a 15-inch lightweight handguard that features a Picatinny top rail and 7-sided M-LOK® channels for the use of compatible accessories.
