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.

How SilencerCo is Undermining Silencer Shop’s Kiosk Program

It didn’t take long for Silencer Shop’s post-41F kiosks to attract the ire of competitors. In an email sent back in May by SilencerCo to their distributors, the suppressor giant accuses Silencer Shop of “spreading the next wave of Post (sic) 41F misinformation” and advises dealers that licensees are not permitted to collect fingerprints under the new regulations. The whole message,… Read more »

Silence Evolved: 2016 New Suppressor Preview

In Modern Rifleman’s first silencer preview last January, I made what seemed like a bold forecast when I proclaimed that 2015 would be the “Year of the Suppressor”. At the time, several major brands had new cans just over the horizon and a few young, but promising, companies were just leaving the ground. Despite my assertion, I’m not sure I… Read more »

Modern Rifleman’s Favorites of SHOT Show 2016

Last week, firearms manufacturers, dealers, and media headed to Las Vegas for the industry’s largest trade exhibition, SHOT Show. As is the case each year, SHOT’s 2016 episode brought several new product announcements and updates, a few of which particularly caught my attention.

The New York Daily News Embarrasses Itself, Others Take the Bait On Wednesday, the New York Daily News dropped with this cover story: Throughout the rest of the day, other “journalists” latched on to the theme and posted similar stories in popular news outlets lambasting the NRA for supposedly arming terrorists.

Indeed, outside of SHOT Show, this has probably been one of the most interesting weeks of firearm announcements in recent memory.

Silencer Shop Authority: Eccentric Pistol Suppressor Roundup

When I was writing my reviews for the AAC Illusion 9 and SilencerCo Osprey 9, I often found myself drawing comparisons between these two eccentric pistol suppressors.
