B&T USA Suppressor Update

Wednesday, February 7th, 2024

During SHOT Show, I caught up on the latest suppressor news from B&T USA.

The big news is that they have introduced Hub Adapters to allow their suppressors to work with different manufacturers’ muzzle devices.

Available Hub Adapters:

-Rotex SF

-NATO A2 birdcage

-Two direct mount options, 1/2x 28 & 5/8 x 24.

A Hub Adapter ships with all of B&T’s Mainline Suppressor offerings.

Both the Slim Line Reduced Back pressure and Rotex suppressors are available in 718 Inconel or Titanium with the Ti version 100% Ti to include the hub. To give you an idea of the weight savings of Ti over Inconel, a 7.62 suppressor weights 6.9 oz in Ti while it comes in at 11 oz in Inconel.

On a final note, B&T’s machine gun suppressors are now 3D printed and all of the suppressors are now available globally.

SilencerCo Releases Three New Suppressors at SHOT Show 2024

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2024

January 23, 2024 — West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo is excited to release three new suppressors at SHOT Show this year. The Spectre 9, Velos 5.56 K and Velos LBP 7.62 will all be on display at SilencerCo’s SHOT Show booth (#10560) . These suppressors are a direct result of numerous customer requests. They will all be available to purchase on silencerco.com and through retailers in early February. 

The Spectre 9 is the next evolution in SilencerCo’s collection of titanium suppressors. It’s completely constructed from titanium and designed for pistol and subgun platforms. The Spectre 9 is compatible with 9mm and subsonic 300 BLK. It’s extremely lightweight at only 3.9 ounces with no mounts. It offers competitive sound performance for suppressors in its size category. It’s also full-auto rated, and one of the few suppressors that can run on a full-auto Glock. 

The Velos 5.56 K and Velos LBP 7.62 are variations of SilencerCo’s first low back pressure silencer, the Velos 5.56 LBP. The Velos K is a shorter version of the original Velos at just 4.76 inches. It still provides the shooter with the benefits of reduced gas, but in a compact and maneuverable package. The Velos 7.62 will accommodate calibers up to .300 RUM for compatibility with more host firearms. 

“When we saw the customer excitement surrounding our recently released Scythe-Ti and Velos LBP 5.56, we knew we needed to expand these product lines,” said SilencerCo VP of Marketing, Mike Aland. “The Spectre 9, Velos 5.56 K, and Velos LBP 7.62 are all part of our efforts to create premium suppressors that are exactly what the customer is asking for.”

B&T USA Expands Production of APC9K SD2 US Army Submission

Friday, January 19th, 2024

Tampa, Florida–B&T USA, a leading manufacturer of firearms and suppressors, is pleased to announce that it has expanded production of its 9mm APC9K SD2 models complete with the company’s scalable suppressor system. This variant was submitted for consideration during the United States Army Sub Compact Weapon (SCW) trials as a demonstration of technology, with the Army ultimately awarding that contract to B&T USA for its APC9K SMG.

“To win a U.S. Government contract, you must submit a product that as closely meets the defined specifications as possible. That’s not necessarily what you think the end user needs, but when we’re developing platforms like this, we want to be two steps ahead of the game,” said Chris Mudgett, Vice President of Marketing, B&T USA. “In other words, we want to build firearms that won’t be obsolete in a year—or three years, or even 10. Without a doubt, that’s a challenge in the technologically advanced landscape of modern battlefields and urban law enforcement, but when the U.S. Army sees what you’ve done and acknowledges you gave them more than they asked for—much more—you’ve succeeded in fielding a firearm that has market longevity.

“Initially introduced in a very limited production run to service the SCW contract, the demand for the APC9K SD2 from other market segments has been unprecedented,” continued Mudgett. “What our customer want, our customers get, and we’re excited to be ramping up our production numbers in 2024.”

At less than 15 inches in overall length, the APC9K SD2 is the shortest integrally suppressed submachine gun available on the market today (a semi-automatic version is also available to both consumer and professional markets). With a 3-inch ported barrel and an over-the-barrel suppressor design that is fully contained within the short, M-Lok-compatible SD handguard, this weapon is optimized for low-visibility carriage and discreet deployment, delivering exceptional accuracy, controllability and ergonomics. Should the user require the utmost in suppression in lieu of compactness, a second-stage suppressor can be threaded onto the first, providing APC9 SD Compact-level (mid-length) decibel reduction.
