Facts

There are things about suppressors that manufacturers do not tell you. For example, suppressors create an acidic compound, when gunpowder, bullet residue and everything else exiting the muzzle of your firearm is combined with condensation (created from the heating and cooling of the suppressor) a compound capable of corroding a barrel or a suppressor is formed. Part two of this story, we have seen suppressor come apart at the end caps, stainless steel, aluminum etc. all can do this. The end caps are generally threaded or welded, creating a thinner portion near the ends, thereby allowing a place for corrosion to begin and ultimately resulting in breakage. How do I avoid this you ask, simple after firing remove the tube from your weapon so that they can air out. If the tube can be disassembled, clean your tube, or spray a very small amount of oil into the tube, wd-40, liquid wrench etc. but use sparingly as these formulas are often flammable and could go boom upon your next firing. Titanium tubes are corrosion resistant will require no maintenance

Our tubes are different, plain and simple. One key factor differentiating our tubes from “theirs” is the one piece design. This idea revolutionized suppressor manufacturing, and we own the patent. We designed and manufactured the tubes for the cheytac .408, 1 piece design, our tubes are precision milled and hand fitted to insure absolute perfection and total reliability were it counts. The one piece design means no “servicing” the tube. If you chose to clean our tubes the process goes something like this. Step one remove tube from unloaded firearm. Step 2- spray carburetor cleaner into tube and allow to soak. Step three- spray more carburetor cleaner into tube and flush out. Step four- allow carburetor cleaner to dry before reinstalling. Done. This one piece idea also means superior strength and structural integrity.

Another thing that separates us from them is the materials used. Once again here are some pics of a 30 cal suppressor tube we purposely misaligned on an ak and subjected it to a high rate of fire, (which is not something we suggest you do). Not only did the tube stay attached after at least five bullet strikes but was the removed and reinstall on an ar10 and another 20 rounds fired through it with no ill effects. Safety, that is what it comes down to. If you need it and it has a catastrophic failure rendering you and/or your weapon unusable what good is it? We do not sell anything that is not to our standards of usability and accuracy. Only the best will do.

All suppressor change the point of aim, the question is repeatability. Our suppressors and their mounting systems were chosen after arduous testing to confirm repeatability and accuracy. Our in barrel system for the .22 caliber rifle still has confirmed kills on ground hogs at distances in excess of 150 meters, all with subsonic ammo.

Unlike the movies, suppressors suppress noise, not silence it. This is accomplished but slowing down and diverting the blast exiting the muzzle, giving time to expand under controlled conditions and allowing it some time to cool. Some of this can be evidenced by the phenomenon called “first round pop” this is where the fiery blast exiting the muzzle combines with the oxygen in the suppressor and causes a pop noise that goes away after the first shot, because all the oxygen has burned out. The other factor to contend with is the bullet. Any bullets traveling in excess of 1050 feet per second are traveling at super sonic speeds. Thereby breaking the sound barrier creating a crack noise that is only avoidable by slowing down the bullet to sub-sonic speeds. Many times this is impractical or impossible. A subsonic bullet from a high power rifle is seldom stable enough to be effective at any real distance, how far you ask? Each bullet with a different ballistic coefficient is different. But we see around 150 yard or so to be fairly terminal. Yes there are exceptions, but they are not the rule.
