…that we can offer to the first time buyer. When a person decides to get into the NFA pool so to speak, they are inundated with choices for silencers out there on the market. Driving this point home, we offer 20 different models on our website alone! This gives people purchase paralysis and a lot of people simply just won’t buy one for fear of choosing the wrong one to start with.
When we started out in the silencer market, we would recommend a different type of silencer for the first time buyer. A rimfire suppressor would be what we would call the “gateway” to more specialized suppressors later on. This worked really well for about 4 years or so, then Obama was elected president and the gun community collectively lost its mind for almost ten years with ammo hoarding and price gouging becoming the norm for … you guessed it… rimfire ammo. In particular, 22LR was the most hoarded ammunition of he period with record numbers of it being manufactured but no one was willing to goto the range like they once did and burn through 1000 rounds in a Saturday.
With this paradigm shift came a new caliber enthusiast, the 9mm shooter. We also saw a resurgence in cast lead use as resourceful people fell back on making projectiles out of wheel weights and other such metals. This raised a new need in the silencer world. A “take apart” 9mm suppressor so the people shooting cast lead bullets could clean them. Enter the Mystic silencer, it was a revolution in the game when released, being monolithic core and a simple design that you can not reassemble wrong, this was an immediate hit with the reloading community as well as the 9mm AR crowd.
As time marched on we refined the design and moved to stronger metals to improve on the Mystic suppressor, this led to the Mystic X and it is our current offering as of this writing. This silencer has it all, light weight, strong material choice, incredible caliber list. tons of attachments to allow use on an incredible amount of firearms and mounts. It is literally the perfect first time buyer’s silencer. It gives the first time buyer enough options to explore suppressing many different host firearms with a single silencer so that they can better determine what guns they want dedicated silencers for and what guns they simply want to put mounts of and things like that. It is almost like getting to test drive other silencers without the need to buy them first.
Some people take this one step further and simply just use the one silencer for all the different guns by buying the mounts for those guns and leaving the mounts on the guns and just adding the FBA thread protectors to the adapters to keep from damaging the threads. This way you simply screw the suppressor module off of one host weapon adapter and right onto the next one.
So if you are looking to get into the NFA game and get a silencer, but you have paralysis through analysis because there are so many choices, just get the Mystic X and use it for a while to see what you think you will need going forward and you cant go wrong…
