How do I purchase a Liberty Suppressor? — The steps to owning one of our suppressors are simple. Here’s a basic rundown:
That’s it! Your suppressor is now yours to enjoy for a lifetime.
What is “at the ear” measurement? — The “At the Ear” or ATE measurement is the amount of pressure exerted on your ear drums by the sound waves produced by a gunshot. This is generally accepted as being the loudest and most important sonic parameter to consider when determining how effective a suppressor will be in protecting your hearing.
Why is ATE measurement important? — The ATE measurement not only takes into account the sound pressure level (SPL) reduction of the suppressor, but also takes into account the noise attenuation provided by ear protection. This is important because most shooters wear some form of ear protection while shooting.
What are some examples of ATE measurement for a rifle with different adapters? — For an AR15 with 55gr ball ammo rifle, the ATE measurements were found to be the following.
What is tone in regards to firearm silencers and suppressors? — The tone of a silencer is subjective to the individual and is more important than absolute decibel levels in the real world. The dB meter is great for scientifically determining that a certain design is safe for use, but in the end, the person designing the silencer needs to make sure the tone generated by the can will be pleasant to the ear as well as the meter.
What makes Libery Suppressors stand out when it comes to tone? — There are many world-class 22LR silencers on the market today that measure less than 120 dB on a sound pressure level meter, but only one maker chooses to also apply the metric of tone when making silencers — and that maker is Libery Suppressors.
How can I test the difference between Liberty and other firearm suppressors? To compare, get a Liberty Suppressor and a few silencers in the caliber you are looking for. Listen to them go off side by side on similar weapons, if possible. We feel that tonal differences make the silencer or break it for people, so try them out for yourself and you too will see how great Liberty Suppressors are!
A few mainstream weapons come with threaded barrels that allow for the addition of silencers. These guns include the following.
There are many others that are compatible but are less common, so feel free to contact us if you don’t see your gun on this list.
Also, remember that brand new guns might not work properly until they are broken in (250 rounds should do it) and some sub-compacts might not work with certain models — for example, the Mystic on a Glock Model 26 can be iffy at times. Full-size and mid-size versions are the preferred choices here when choosing a host firearm.
Liberty Suppressors work on most rifles, with the exception of the following brands: Davis, Raven, Bryco, Jennings, Lorcin. The guns made by these brands are designed for a specific pressure curve and the addition of a suppressor will make them fail during use.
Also, if your weapon has an integrated barrel design such as the desert eagle, it will have to be custom machined to accept a suppressor and the addition of the suppressor might be enough weight to impede the proper operation of the weapon causing it to jam during use.
Really old guns are not good suppressor hosts either, these weapons are made with materials that are sometimes suspect in their integrity and we do not feel it is safe to use these weapons for suppressor use. The Nagant revolver comes to mind here even though people do tinker with it.
If you have to get a gunsmith to modify your weapon so you can add a suppressor, proceed with great caution as it is possible that catastrophic failure could result from this modification. Also, note that very thin barrels should not be threaded.
Please contact us if you are unsure if our silencers will work with your gun.

5. The booster should not be used on carbines
6. The booster should be used on almost all handguns that will take a silencer. Only handguns with fixed in place barrels do not need a booster.
7. The full size FBA is used on rifles primarily to lower chamber pressure in the blast chamber.
