Liberty Suppressors Zulu Integrally Suppressed AR Upper Receiver

When looking for an integrally suppressed AR, there is only one true option to choose. The Zulu is literally designed around the 5.56 NATO cartridge and is optimized for the AR15 platform. We made the decision to build the silencer into the upper as an integral part of the rifle to see just how good we could get the build.

We made several design decisions that we felt incorporated the gas impingement design. Things like putting the gas block inside the silencer module to capture the gas that leaks out of the gas block in the areas when it meets the gas tube and barrel. This done another thing, we were able to extend the back of the silencer module past the gas block which allows for a significant amount of volume to be added to the blast chamber. This added volume allows us to lower the initial blast pressure dramatically before entering he subsequent baffle chambers. This lowers overall tone and reduced gas spitting to some degree.

Another innovative feature of the Zulu integrally suppressed AR upper receiver assembly is the peripherally ported front cap. This allows pressure to bleed off at a controlled pace to further lower internal pressure and to also reduce back pressure even more.

The next trick we employed was the use of all that titanium in the construction of the suppressor module. We figured that this would do several things at once for our idea of the perfect integrally suppressed AR upper assembly. The first thing is the most obvious though in that it makes the fact that there is a silencer on the rifle not even noticed, it is incredibly lightweight and points very easily. The next thing that the titanium does is to help with heat dissipation where it will lot hold the heat very well, there by reducing the amount of stored heat from shot to shot a lot less than what we would have had with stainless steel. Dont get me wrong, this girl can get feisty! But with just a short period of time to cool, it can have decent manners much faster than if we have used other metals.

So when you are looking for integrally suppressed AR builds, we feel this is the best you can find.

So until next time, keep your powder dry!

5.56 suppressor variations and why?

There is no shortage of 5.56 suppressor designs, and we have several here to choose from as well.

The reason for all of the variations in 5.56 suppressor designs is that there are many needs for the Suppressors. When you are looking for a suppressor for your 5.56 rifle I would suggest that you decide what is most important first. Cost, weight, or suppression are all factors that need to be considered. Once this has been determined, you can move forward with your choice at that time.

The first thing that most people need to decide is weight. Weight is a big factor for a carbine and with a really heavy muzzle silencer it causes some problems and solves some problems. Our Constitution direct thread 5.56 suppressor works well with SBR designs and makes for a cost versus weight balance that is hard to beat. The weight on a short barrel rifle causes transition muzzle over-shoot when transitioning from one target to the next it also makes the gun more stable in the hand, so there is less sight bounce. But on a longer target rifle style firearm, it will cause the muzzle to drop a little from the added weight on the end of the barrel, adding bullet drop to the position of the aim.

Once this has been decided, the next thing is cost. A lot of people have very specific needs and do not want to spend large quantities of money on a silencer and it is important to decide how much money you wish to invest in your suppressor for your 5.56 suppressor. Things like material choice, or design will affect price. Another thing to consider is integral designs like the Zulu. It will cost more but adds significant accuracy and sound suppression in one package.
