Rimfire cans might be quieter and rifle suppressors are more practical, but pistol silencers take the badass cake. They won’t make you James Bond, but you can pretend they will.

Busy July for Suppressor Enthusiasts

July has been one heck of a month for silencer enthusiasts. First of all, the ATF appears to have finally cleared the pre-41F paperwork onslaught! That means approvals should speed up significantly. Second, a variety of manufacturers have announced new suppressors. Just two weeks after Thompson Machine revealed its new fully-modular .22 suppressor, SilencerCo and Q have thrown their hats… Read more »

Griffin Armament Announces Revolution Upgrade Program

One of the unfortunate truths of NFA firearms and the long wait times associated with the approval process is that sometimes that can you bought eight months ago and just picked up might already be out of date. With a litany of companies producing suppressors and new releases hitting every few months, it isn’t uncommon for an entirely new release… Read more »

Silencer Shop Authority: AAC Ti-Rant 9M Review

Back in 2013, I made my first suppressor purchase – a SilencerCo Octane 45 HD. At the time, my decision made a lot of sense as I didn’t have any other cans and caliber flexibility was paramount to me. In the four years following that purchase, I’ve learned quite a lot about myself as a shooter and silencer enthusiast, primarily that… Read more »

Silencer Shop Authority: Gemtech Aurora Review

In June 1995, at the tail end of the Bosnian War, an American pilot, Captain Scott O’Grady, was shot down in his F-16 while flying a sortie over Serb controlled territory. For the next six days, O’Grady managed to successfully evade enemy forces who actively sought to flush him out of hiding. For the entirety of his six-day struggle, O’Grady… Read more »

SilencerCo Announces Omega 45K, Kills Trifecta Mounts and Specwar Line

This afternoon, SilencerCo dropped a YouTube video outlining changes to their silencer lineup for 2017. In the spot (featured below), they show off the new Omega 45K, a larger brother to the company’s popular Omega 9K. However, it’s changes to existing products that have the firearms community buzzing. To start things off, SilencerCo is officially abandoning the Trifecta mounting system… Read more »

Silencer Shop Authority: Reviewing Alpha Dog’s Alpha 9 Suppressor

The past few years have been extremely good to suppressor enthusiasts and manufacturers. In spite of the threat posed by ATF 41F, the sheer numbers of silencers in public hands has exploded and in response to this growth, we’ve seen plenty of new companies hop in for a piece of the pie. A few of these newcomers happen to be cranking out… Read more »

Silencer Shop Authority: AAC Ti-Rant 45M Review

For me, AAC’s Ti-Rant series has always been analogous to that person that all of your friends know and love, but you’ve never met. The Ti-Rant 9 was, according to many, the quietest 9mm suppressor on the market for several years and the short S-models are probably the most successful “K” cans available. Even after all this praise, it has… Read more »

Silencer Shop Authority: Rugged Suppressors Obsidian 45 Review

Back in December, the guys at Rugged Suppressors kept silencer fans on their toes when they dropped two new products within ten days of one another. The first out the gate was their compact Razor 762, a .30 caliber can that offered the same durability as their Surge 762 in a much smaller and lighter package. The second release (and… Read more »

Silencer Shop Announces Post-41F Purchasing Program

For many suppressor enthusiasts, July 13 just got a lot less ominous. This afternoon, Pete over at The Firearm Blog dropped the details on Silencer Shop’s new program to equip dealers to handle the new ATF 41F requirements. Though I’ve known about Silencer Shop’s plan for quite a while (after all, they are Modern Rifleman’s largest partner), it is now… Read more »

NRA Annual Meetings 2016: YHM’s Nitro and More

While cruising through the first day of NRAAM 2016, I took some time to meet with the folks from Yankee Hill Machine. Through my work with Silencer Shop, I’ve sampled a few of their cans and I wanted to see how the upcoming Nitro was shaping up. Since it was first shown at SHOT back in January, YHM has shaved… Read more »
