Best Multi Caliber Suppressor Attributes

Best Multi Caliber Suppressor Idea

When thinking of what makes the best multi caliber suppressor, one has to look at what they need in a silencer like this. The suppressor needs to be versatile, yes, but it also needs some other things to make it more useful in a variety of roles. We have been making multi purpose silencers for a very long time, so we feel we can speak on this subject with confidence.

The first thing that comes to mind is obvious, the best multi caliber suppressor needs to handle a huge amount of caliber variations. This can be genre specific or it can cover a ton of different areas. Things like rimfire firearms and centerfire pistol calibers are just a few.

Rifle/Pistol/Rimfire or what?

Does a multi purpose silencer have to fit every role imaginable? No. It only has to fit the roles it is designed for really well. The Infiniti X fits many roles well and several incredibly well. Just to name a few things that this suppressors has been used on with great success are.

  1. Booster Operated Pistol Silecner
  2. Non-booster Operated Pistol Silencer (Usually Rimfire but some centerfire too)
  3. Direct Thread Hunting Rifle Suppressor
  4. Direct Thread Carbine Suppressor
  5. Direct Thread Precision Rifle Suppressor
  6. Direct Thread Rimfire firearms in general.

I am sure there are more but I cant think of them at the time of this writing. The Infiniti X excels at all of these roles and weighs almost nothing while doing it. The weight is actually why it works so well in pistol and hunting rifle applications, it is not a burden to carry.

There are other silencers that have been classed as the best multi caliber suppressor, but the opinion of Liberty Suppressors is the Mystic X silencer are the absolute best. Some might consider our opinion biased, but it can be right too… We love our multi purpose silencers and we feel you will too.

A 350 Legend Suppressor…

Choosing a 350 Legend Suppressor is easy.

OK, now we have to look a little at what makes a good 350 Legend Suppressor. We just happen to have a one so lets take a closer look and see what we have.

The first thing a good 350 Legend Suppressor needs a to be made from durable materials. This is why we don’t use aluminum here, it has two strikes against it right out of the gate. One is low tensile strength and the other is fatigue life. The problem with aluminum for me is that fatigue issue, when it fails, it fails catastrophically when it does. This is cool if you want a dramatic show, but not so much when you want to keep your rifle nice and quiet.

silencer suppressor carbine AR15 goliath 350 legend suppressor

Special metals we do like

Metals like titanium and high grade stainless steels are our preferred metals. These metals have good cost versus features for our needs. You see, there are technically better metals out there, but they are very expensive to buy and work with in general. So it winds up costing so much more to use these special alloys. You see, no one wants to pay the price it would cost to use them. Because of these factors alone, we chose 17-4PH Stainless Steel and 6AL4V Titanium for our needs.

Our Goliath while being primarily designed for the 458 SOCOM and the 338 Lapua Magnum works exceedingly well. It can be used on many big bore cartridges available today and the 350 Legend is no exception. It is constructed mainly of titanium with a few parts made from stainless steel. The core and tube being titanium makes this silencer very light for it’s size. This was one of our primary design requirements aside from sound suppression. We wanted it to not be a burden to deploy into the field when on a hunting trip.

Sound Suppression can not be overstated…

This catagory is where we put almost all of our emphasis when we design a silencer. We feel the whole point of having the suppressor on your firearm is to reduce the sound signature. This first and foremost spec leads us to make some “out of the box” designs to make sure our users are happy. For one we design specific baffle geometry for each model that is specific for the type of rounds being used. We will sacrifice other specs for this, like size is an easy one to think of here… This is why the Goliath silencer is 2″ in diameter, it just makes sense when suppressing a 338 Lapua or 350 Legend.

All that aside a 350 Legend Suppressor like the Goliath will serve most anyone perfectly for many years. This is why we recommend it so much when we do, it just works and works really well. Be sure to consider all the aspects of a silencer when looking for your 350 Legend Suppressor and not fall for clever marketing. I hope this has helped eve na little when looking for your big bore silencer needs.

Multi-purpose Silencer or Dedicated Suppressor

When choosing a silencer for your project, it is important to choose one that fits your needs in the scenario that you will be using it in. This is the most common stumbling block for most first time buyers and even veteran silencer owners. Let’s take a quick look at what can be some of the criteria that should be looked at for choosing a silencer for multi purpose use or a dedicated application.

multipurpose silencer suppressor

Multipurpose Suppressor

When most people decide to get a silencer for the first time, they usually gravitate to the multipurpose silencer. This makes a lot of sense too as it gives the most versatility of use that can be had for the purchasers dollar. Sometimes this is a good thing and sometimes this is a problem. The problems come in when you want a very specific application and this application has criteria that the multipurpose suppressor can not fit in. Things like small carbine builds for mounted operations. You would definitely not want a something like the Mystic X in a situation like this. Now, multipurpose designs do have merit though so things like a rimfire rifle as well as a centerfire hunting rifle is a great application where one day you are on the square range shooting steel targets with your Infinti X multipurpose suppressor, then the next day you are in your tree stand hunting whitetail deer with your Savage Model 110 in 308 Winchester. This dual application setup is a perfect example of what a multipurpose suppressor is supposed to be used for. There are many more but this is a good one to start with

suppressor silencer carbine

Dedicated Suppressor Designs

This area is where I normally steer a more seasoned silencer owner as this is where you start to dedicate silencers to specific firearms. The most common applications for dedicated suppressor designs is like the photo above of a 556 NATO short barreled rifle and that it will see heavy use on the firing range. The Constitution 2 silencer seems to be the unit of choice for this application actually.

Another application for a dedicated silencer is on a rimfire pistol, these are very popular setups and for good reason. When people goto the range the first time to shoot a suppressed 22LR firearm, the pistol is usually what it is. If you have never used a high quality rimfire suppressor on a rimfire pistol host you are missing out. This is one of the true joys in life for the firearms enthusiast, to experience the exhilarating pleasure of shooting a quiet rimfire firearm.

My conclusion to all of this…

So here is my conclusion to this topic, at first almost all people should get a multipurpose suppressor to “dip their toes in the water” so to speak but once they have done that, the next one will be a dedicated unit to be “married” to a certain firearm. This is the logical progression in the United States with the way the process is currently structured for silencer ownership. Some people will obviously fall outside this area, but most will fit nicely inside this box and that is ok. Get your silencer and go have some fun with it.

22 LR bliss with a silencer

22LR Silencer choices

When people start looking for a 22LR suppressor, they normally look for one that has as many options as possible for calibers as they want as many choices as they can get for the same dollar spent. This makes perfect sense as the user would be wise to do this…for a multipurpose silencer…

A 22LR silencer should fill that role really well and not really any other. The only real exception to this is other rimfire calibers like 17HMR and 22WMR. But you will want it to be as quiet as possible on 22LR as the main suppressor application. We tend to get hung up on options here in the United States for some reason and that is not always a good thing.

The right choice…

22LR is a caliber that is special in that is can be made to be subsonic without too much work. this is different from almost all other calibers on the market. The 22LR is the right combination of bullet weight and velocity that there are several choices of ammunition that can easily be driven to the subsonic level without much effort. One brand that comes to mind right away is CCI Standard Velocity, even with it’s claimed supersonic velocity on the box, it routinely comes in as subsonic. It works so well in fact that we use it exclusively for our testing ammunition here at the facility!

So if you like to shoot 22LR, just get a suppressor to fit that round and one that works really well for it and don’t worry if it can handle 22-250 or some such. Are you REALLY going to be shooting these other calibers on your rimfire can? Most people will answer “No” if they are honest with themselves here.

When you choose your rimfire silencer, simply be honest with yourself and if you wont be shooting it on anything other than 22LR (and this applies to most people) Then save yourself the headache and just get a really good 22LR silencer. We make two different ones and they both excell at two different things well. The Regulator is just drop dead quiet, that is it’s claim to fame. Ridiculous suppression and a light weight package. The other suppressor is the Vector and this silencer, while not as quiet as the regulator, is designed for ease of maintenance in mind. This way you can choose based on which camp you live in. The ease of maintenance camp or the absolute suppression camp.

Multi caliber suppressor by Liberty Suppressors

Multi caliber suppressor is a term we basically were involved in the invention of. We went down this rabbit hole a long time ago and have stuck to this mantra ever since. The use of high grade stainless steels and titanium in our multi caliber suppressor designs has really brought us to the forefront of the multi caliber suppressor community.

Mystic silencer

A little multi caliber suppressor history…

When we made out first true multi purpose silencer, it was the 22 suppressor designs that we started with. we made these designs to be able to handle all the new rimfire cartridges of the period. When new rimfire rounds were added, we chose to work those into the designs as well. Later came the true multi purpose designs though and that is where the story gets interesting. The Mystic is where it all began. We even made a little video back in the day showcasing it a little.

Why multi caliber suppressor evolution

The Mystic paved the way for an entire industry, bringing fresh thinking to the scene. Everywhere one looks these days, they can find a multi-caliber suppressor. Embracing fresh thinking allows many minds to work on this idea, breeding great innovation. It has always been believed that innovation stems from a large group of people collaborating. This perspective aligns with the core belief of seeing the industry thrive through constant innovation is what makes progress possible.

Innovation being the key construct of the Mystic silencer, the next evolution was the Mystic X suppressor. While the Mystic was a wonderful design for a suppressor, the Mystic X excelled way beyond the world that the Mystic lived in. Liberty Suppressors went all out on this design and even continues to revise and improve it to this day as we discover things that will make it better. Then comes the variants where you get to have them in different metals or finishes. This is also driven by innovation as we have improved the coating over the years to a more durable CeraKote finish instead of the moly resin of the old days.

Wrapping up

We take innovation very seriously and will continue to do so as long as we are able. Liberty Suppressors looks forward to seeing what the future brings to the silencer world and hopes to be there when the next big breakthrough occurs.

Unlocking Enhanced Shooting: The Nielsen Device’s Role in Pistol Silencers

Exploring the Physics of Pistol Silencers: The Role of the Nielsen Device

As gun owners, let’s delve into the intricate world of firearm accessories, particularly for pistol silencers. Among the crucial components of these suppressors is the Nielsen Device, a mechanism that plays a vital role in optimizing their performance. Let’s explore the significance of the Liberty Suppressor booster in pistol silencer applications.

Cutaway booster assembly

Understanding Pistol Silencers: A Physics Perspective

Understanding the fundamentals of pistol silencers requires a grasp of the mechanics behind sound suppression and recoil management. The Nielsen Device, also known as a recoil booster assembly, is a key element in achieving these objectives. Its innovative design allows for the effective management of recoil forces generated by the firing process.

The Nielsen Device: Harnessing Physics for Recoil Management

At its core, the Liberty Suppressor booster operates on the principle of Newton’s third law of motion, which states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. When a pistol is fired, gases are expelled from the barrel, propelling the bullet forward. Simultaneously, an equal and opposite force is exerted backward, causing recoil.

Here’s where the Nielsen Device comes into play. By harnessing the energy of the recoil, this ingenious mechanism redirects it to facilitate the cycling of the pistol’s action. This not only ensures reliable functioning but also minimizes felt recoil, resulting in a smoother shooting experience.

The Ingenious Design of the Nielsen Device

The Liberty Suppressor booster achieves this feat through a clever arrangement of springs and pistons. As the pistol recoils, the device allows for a brief period of free movement before engaging the piston. This delay in action ensures that the pistol’s slide can cycle fully, extracting the spent cartridge and chambering a new round without interruption.

Selecting Quality Nielsen Devices for Enhanced Performance

When selecting a pistol silencer, it’s essential to consider the presence of a quality Nielsen Device. Liberty Suppressors offers a range of recoil booster assemblies that are specifically designed to enhance the performance of pistol silencers. With features such as durable construction and precise engineering, these devices ensure consistent and reliable operation.

Conclusion: Optimizing Pistol Silencer Performance

In conclusion, the Nielsen Device plays a pivotal role in the functionality of pistol silencers, allowing for effective recoil management and sound suppression. As a second-year physics student, I appreciate the intricate physics behind this essential firearm accessory and recognize its significance in optimizing shooting experiences.

Multi caliber suppressor thoughts.

A multi caliber suppressor is something you need to look at more carefully than you think. When choosing a swiss army knife of sorts like this, you want to take all the things into consideration that you will need for it to fill your needs and do that well.

Weight

I personally love the Infiniti X silencer for use as my personal multi caliber suppressor when I grab one. This is because it can do literally everything the Mystic X can do. It weighs almost half what the Mystic X weighs though. You see, weight is a big factor when it comes to multi caliber suppressor choices. This is because there will be times when this silencer is pressed into service on hunting rigs. If you carry you gear for any length of time, you know that weight is the enemy of a good experience. So, I automatically gravitate to the Infiniti X because of this one item alone.

Infiniti X Multi Caliber Suppressor Front Cap

Caliber

Another reason I love the Infiniti X for my use as a multi caliber suppressor is that it can handle calibers all the way up to 300 Win Mag. Those long range rifles are easily protected from excessive noise as well due to this fact. But the best use on a rifle is a lever action 357 MAG with 38 Special subsonic loads is magical. When it comes to rifles and silencers in my book this is the pinnacle. If you have never heard this combination, I highly recommend you find one and try it for yourself. It is life changing…

Mounts

Another thing to consider is the choice of mounting solutions for your multi caliber suppressor. When looking to mount it on several different host weapons it becomes necessary to use many different mounts to get it on those weapons. Having a silencer that has a nice well established set of mounts is important to that development. This is another reason we love the Mystic X, Infiniti X, Cosmic and Centurion family of silencers, they have a huge selection of mounts for virtually any firearm out there.

So if your looking for something like this, dont hesitate to give us a call and talk to us about it, we are here for you. Till next time, keep your powder dry!

Silencershop and other vendors…

When people start looking for a silencer, they will inevitably run across silencershop.com and a few other websites that will stock a plethora of silencers to choose from. The problem with these kinds of sites is that they are not all inclusive but rather they are fairly selective in what they offer, excluding some brands completely or only offering certain models from a maker. Not all places on the web do this, but most do.

Take silencershop for instance, they dont offer our suppressors even though they offer our brand name on one of their pages. This is why it is important to look past the first two or three hits on a google search before just clicking on the top result. Sometimes there are wonderful gems right there to be had for the taking right under these top results. You see, these juggernauts work tirelessly to improve their search ranking till it is at the top or very close to it. This is actually very smart for them as it taps into the part of human nature we all like…lazy. You see we are in a hurry most of the time and want to get the answer the easiest way possible so we simply click on the first result we find that looks relevant…I am guilty of this too. So you get what they offer and nothing else. Why bother right? They have plenty to choose from…

Well, this actually stifles innovation as you are corralled into an area where you can choose from a selectively curated list of makers of their choosing and all the startup companies that are doing the real innovation are now pushed out by these “big box stores” of sorts. Allow more people to play the game and the next real breakthrough has a much greater potential to happen. 3D printed silencers seems to be the way of the future…for now, what comes next though? Well, if you ask places like silencershop, it will come from one of the brands they offer on their page… or not at all.

If you goto their page and search our company, you will find our name and a ton of linked models on that page (albeit a quite dated description but it is there none the less), but there is a pseudo bait and switch it seems. When you click on the links it simply takes you back to the page of silencers that they currently sell, none of which are our silencers. It is like the links I have placed above of their name that links directly to our silencers webstore page. It says one thing on the name and takes you somewhere else. This will put it into the mind of the buyer that we as a company, are either out of business or our models are sold out so they simply choose something else from the list instead, this is powerful marketing that works. We know this because people have told us they though we were no longer in business just for this reason.

So in closing, if you want stuff that places like silencershop offer, then they are a great resource, but if you want to get a clearer picture of what is out there, look a little deeper then the big online retailers and you will find a whole other world of options out there. Go luck in your search and remember we are just a phone call or email away to answer your questions.

Why choose the Constitution 2 rifle silencer?

When we set out to make the original Constitution silencer it was originally intended for use on the FN P90 in 5.7mm but quickly became a fan favorite in the 5.56mm community instead. While it did see some adoption by the 5.7mm community, we have sold so many to 5.56 NATO owners instead that we officially changed the caliber designation years ago to reflect this.

Pictured above is the original Constitution alloy steel silencer.

This silencer is rugged, simple and has great suppression. This is part of why it has become an almost iconic suppressor, but the main reason is that it is dead simple to use. You see the Constitution didnt have all those complex widgets or mounts or springs to get stuck. It is a simple direct thread suppressor that works. We found that most people are in one of two camps, they either want all the complexity of the QA mounting systems out there or they want something dead simple, literally just screw it on the rifle and go shoot.

We wanted to make the most user friendly design possible so we chose direct thread only here, we also wanted to keep costs down so it doesn’t have a ton of parts in the build. In fact it only has two parts. Yeah, two… The tube and the core is the whole thing, this does many things in a good way. One of those things is it all but eliminates stacking tolerance issues between parts since the rear cap, baffles, and the front cap are all one solid, homogenous piece of alloy steel. There are no part connections internally to get out of alignment. As long as the rear threads are square and the rear face is true to the bore, the can is good to go.

New 5.56 can, Constitution 2 rifle silencer.

When we decided to improve this venerable design, we decided two things right away. The first was to change the tube material from 4140 alloy steel to Grade 9 titanium reducing weight while not sacrificing strength. The next one was to change the core material from 4140 alloy steel to 17-4 PH stainless steel and have the core nitrided like the original suppressor to give it a gorgeous black finish as well as make it incredibly durable at the same time. Silencers like this are not easy to find today in a market filled with gimmicks and widgets. Do you want a quiet suppressor that wont break the bank? The Constitution 2 is your answer.

Where do I see the silencer industry going in the future?

Where is the silencer industry headed? This is something that I get asked fairly often. I have thought about it from time to time, and the real answer is not so cut and dried.

First of all ,we have to look at the silencer industry as a whole first and foremost. The industry is strong with growth in many sectors like new companies are coming into the space and even large brands like Smith and Wesson and Ruger have even gotten on the band wagon.

silencer for a shotgun made from billet aluminum

What I see with most of this though is that people still feel that there is room for new ideas and want to share those ideas with the world. This is good as this means that innovation is not stagnate and that there will be newer and better designs come to market. This means there will be new technology used in the making of the suppressor and this leads to designs not previously feasible due to manufacturing costs. The easy one here is powdered metal 3D printing. This technology has evolved rapidly and even Daniel Defense is on this train. Another neat technology is the new idea of using a mig welder to build in 3D like they are using to make the Space X rocket tanks. This is possibly a type of manufacturing that would work well in the silencer world. Time will tell, but this seems like a perfect way to make complex silencer designs.

As for Liberty, we dont have a metal 3D printer at this time, but that is not to say we won’t get something in this space. We are intrigued with the idea of 3D printing as it “takes the gloves off” of traditional silencer making. We have drawn concepts that were only possible in the past through complex setup processes and were completely non-feasible to produce. This is why we make very specific designs and have to stick to those design parameters, cost to change manufacturing techniques is very high and usually involved a lot of time as well.

What does the future look like for Liberty Suppressors specifically? Well for now we will still be making some of the worlds best silencer designs. The next thing we will be looking at is 3D printing as well as more advanced stack baffle designs as we feel there is room in both of these arenas to improve and we want to try some ideas we have there… this will probably take a few years to produce something that is ready for the masses, but you dont get to the point of releasing something unless you start your prototyping now… I hope you enjoyed my view into the abyss of the US silencer scene and hope to see you soon!

Until next time, keep your powder dry.

AR15 Recoil Buffer Science

When we make an AR15 Recoil Buffer we make it to solve many common problems associated with this rifle platform.

Liberty Suppressors AR15 buffer

When we set out to make our AR15 recoil buffer, we knew that people would be using them with our Leonidas integrally suppressed upper assembly as well as the mate to it, the Zulu integral 5.56mm AR15 upper assembly. Knowing this led us to figure out what weight serves these users the best and it turned out to be 4 ounces. This is about 50% more than a “stock” buffer of 2 3/4 ounces but is enough more than stock to help with feeding of subsonic ammunition as well as dampening excessive bolt velocity on supersonic rounds as well.

One of the things we noticed right away was that it make ejection of spent brass more consistent as well. This comes from the extra mass of the buffer slowing down the velocity of the bolt carrier assembly slightly. Another benifit from this is that it reduces battering of the receiver extension because almost all 16″ carbines are way over gassed. The gas system on these builds are typically used from the 14.5″ builds and the shorter dwell time of these guns. By using this gas system we are great increasing the gas delivered to the carrier as there is significantly more dwell with an extra 1.5″ of barrel. The time is very short here, but the pressure is so high that any increase in dwell time will result in significantly increased back pressure.

The next time you are at the range, take a few minutes to watch how far the AR15 rifles eject their spent brass and if it is more than 8 or 10 feet, it is way over gassed. Most should be about 10 feet from the rifle is gassed correctly, this will clear the brass from the weapon system and not over work the rifle action to cause premature wear on the system. So until next time, keep your powder dry!

The Mystic X is a the best silencer available…

…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.

Out with the old mystic
Original Mystic Silencer

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…

Why dont we make welded core silencers at Liberty?

The simple reason is cost. The cost to setup to make welded core silencers is pretty high once the process for a machined silencers is established or should I say, the cost is really high to add it to our current system… let me explain.

silencers suppressor carbine AR15

Let’s take a look at some of the factors that go into making this design change. There is the cost of adding on to the building to make room for the needed machinery to make these new silencers. We currently dont have the room we would need for a stamping press or the bridge crane needed to handle the tooling and metal to make these designs with. We would also have considerable expense in specialized tooling to go in the stamping press as each component in the design has to have a set of tools (these are called dies: form die, draw die, trim die, ect.) for it. These can be quite expensive and time consuming to make, plus they require significant maintenance to operate properly and none of this is cheap. So how these pay off are in HUGE volumes. Your margin per part is a lot lower so you need to make a lot more of them and this is why stamped designs seem to be cheaper, they are spreading the cost of manufacture over a much larger batch of parts as to where we machine our silencers from bar stock, allows us to make smaller runs, but the cost per part is higher for us. This gives us flexibility in what we make as our machines can be repurposed almost instantly, but it makes our “per part” costs higher. This is what makes mass production so desirable for everyone. It lowers the “per part” costs due to incredible volume of manufacture.

Since we do not have the three primary machines (stamping press, special welding fixture/cnc welding machine, wire EDM to cut bores) to make stamped/welded core silencers, you dont see us offering them. So if you have ever wondered why Liberty has not gotten into making stamped baffle silencers ,these are the main reasons why. Another problem with these designs is that you can not easily make design changes to the product. It requires modifying the tools when you want to add or remove a feature, this also is very expensive to have done by die makers. It is pretty common to see stamping dies with interchangeable parts to change models and such, but if you are tinkering with the design and find something that improves performance a little, it costs too much to implement it in a stamping die to where with our CNC mills and lathes, it is a simple program change and the new feature is now integrated into the very next run cycle. We are about continuous improvement here and want our users to have the best possible device available. A great example of this is our Mystic X suppressor as it has went through several revisions over the years to be better and better.

Now the next question that comes up is why dont we outsource the making of the baffles or the welding/edm work? Well, to be quite honest with you, people just dont care about quality anymore (or so it seems). We tried this several years ago and it was nothing but problems. We had to reject so many parts and be late on deliveries so many times with our silencers that we simply decided to internalize all of our manufacturing and not to use subcontractors ever again. It is just too painful to get good parts delivered on time from third party suppliers…period.

Those are the two main reasons for not jumping into the stamped/welded core designs at this point. So when you are ready for a high quality fully machined silencer for your firearm, we are here to serve you. Until next time, keep your powder dry!

Why are QA silencers more appealing?

Today we take a look at why the Quick Attach silencer is so popular in the american suppressor scene.

It seems there is no shortage of makers who have their own take on the QA silencer design. Many of them work really well, while some do not. Still it seems that even the bad QA designs are more popular than direct thread suppressors. Why is this? Well…

First let’s look at some comparison specs:

  1. Are QA suppressors lighter? – Nope. The QA mount always adds to the weight of the suppressor and adding a mount to the host firearm also adds even more weight.
  2. Are QA suppressors smaller? – Nope. The length added to the back of the silencer by the QA mount makes it longer as well. Now some will argue ” over all added length” because they have also added a mount that the suppressor telescopes over, but in reality, this is misleading as the direct thread screws over the barrel and and QA mount will never telescope to the same point on the barrel as the mount will move the silencer forward somewhat almost every time.
  3. Are QA suppressors quieter? – Nope. They are the exact same model with a QA mount screwed into it. Also rifle silencers are not known for their “movie gun” suppression due to super sonic bullet flight noise, so even if it some how measures a dB or 2 better, it is still going to be in the 130dB range. This is still really loud so that is out.
  4. Are the cheaper? – Nope-a-roo… Adding the QA mount always adds to the cost of a design over a direct thread end-cap. This is basic economics, it simply costs more to make all the QA mount parts and the weapon mount that the silencer fits over than it does to make a simple end-cap.
  5. Do they have “Cool factor”? – Yep. This is where the magic begins to happens for the QA silencer. You see it looks more complex so it has this appeal to men as men typically like complex mechanisms for some reason.
  6. Do they have longer service lives? – Yep… usually. You see with the muzzle brake mount designs, the weapon mounted muzzle brake will act as a sacrificial blast baffle that takes the beating from unburnt powder granules and hot gasses so as to make the silencer baffles last much longer. Plus if you burn the bore out of your brake, simply replace the worn out brake with a new one and you are basically right back to the beginning of the service life cycle.
  7. Do they add versatility? – Not really. You see, some people will also argue that they can put the same mount of multiple weapons and simply move the can from one rifle to the next. They fail to mention that a direct thread silencer can do the exact same thing. The only real differences are that the direct thread takes longer since it takes more time to unscrew the silencer and screw it onto another rifle. (something like one minute) and the direct thread design leaves the muzzle threads of your rifles unprotected so you need to either be more careful with them or use some thread protectors on the threads.
  8. Secret sauce… People are free to choose what ever they want. This is why we sell both kinds of silencers, some people want mounts, some people dont. We are all free to choose what ever we want for our rifles, but just know that slick marketing will try to tell you that the QA designs are the ones to get as they cost more which in turn increases the monthly sales numbers for your favorite silencer company…not because they are better…

This is all my personal opinion on why silencers with QA mounts outperform direct thread suppressor in sales for the most part. We have long felt that direct thread silencers were better and been very slow to adopt QA designs. We finally have done a few but we still recommend our Amendment and Constitution suppressors regularly over our more expense QA designs like the Sovereign and Agent.

Food for thought, hope you have a great day and keep your powder dry!

Does a silencer actually protect your hearing?

In a nutshell, yes and no. Silencers aid in protecting your hearing but are not the end all of the task.

When silencers began to become more mainstream some 20 years ago there was all this hype about “hearing safe” silencers and how they had to be under this level or that level to “protect” your hearing. What this is based on is the OSHA threshold of 140dB and to be honest about it, this is still too high…

This seems to be some arbitrary number to use but you see this is not the whole story. The level also has a time factor also. So if you have 140dB for say some short time like 5 milliseconds then after that it is too much…straight guessing here, I am not a OSHA regulation specialist. Continuing on, that level combined with some sort of time limit are what equal the maximum permissible exposure level, not just the dB number alone.

So for guns like the 22LR this means the exposure can be much longer with a high quality rimfire suppressor than say a 300 win mag with a suppressor installed. Simply because the rimfire silencer is suppressed to 113dB and the 30 WinMag in sitting at 138dB… So here is the rub, 113dB is still high. The difference is that is can be exposed for longer periods of time since it is a lower level.

Armed with this information, I always recommend additional hearing protection for anyone shooting a firearm, whether it has a silencer or not. The additional protection of the ear pro added to that of the silencers lowers the level even more and thereby lengthening the exposure time longer. This reduces the risk of permemant hearing loss, but again, I am no audiologist so take it for what you paid for it. This is just what I have learned over the years.

So when you see you tubers like MrGunsNGear wearing ear pro while shooting suppressed, that isnt because the silencer is bad, it is because the suppressor alone is not enough…especially on a rifle. What a silencer does that ear pro doesnt do is that it protects the hearing of literally everyone in the area instead of the one person wearing ear pro. This simply makes everyone’s ear pro that much more effective. I hope this helps someone protect their hearing and makes life better for everyone.

Until next time, keep your powder dry!

Liberty Suppressors Carbine Buffer

When you think of Liberty Suppressors, you dont normally think of AR-15 parts, but we do offer a couple of things that apply to our suppressors and help our users get the most out of there guns. This buffer is one of those items.

When we set out to make our own buffer, it was from a need to have one that was heavier than stock but not overly complicated with a ton of interchangeable parts or things that can get lost easily. We also wanted it to be completely reliable as well. This meant that we could not make it to where it could be altered by the end user and needed to fit into the existing buffer footprint perfectly.

We also wanted it to have a sort of “signature” of our making, so we chose to make it out of stainless steel, the same that we have used is some of our silencers in fact, and it needed to look good to boot. We achieved both of these with room left over. This buffer comes in at 4 ounces which is about 50% heavier than stock and this slows down the action somewhat to reduce the effects of over gassing. We documented the results in video and it is noticeable in that the ejection angle is modified when the heavier buffer is used. This also smooths out the recoil cycle in the firearm making it easier to control and faster follow up shots and such…

This design is a simple drop in modification that simply requires the end user to remove the old buffer from the carbine and just insert the new one in its place. It is literally that simple. No muss or fuss, just drop it in and have better performance. What could be simpler?

The extra weight makes it easier on the user when it comes to excess gasses as well since it delays the unlocking of the rifle making more of the gasses go out the muzzle instead of the ejection port. There you have it, some simple reasons to add the Liberty Suppressors carbine buffer to your AR15 style rifle. Till next time, keep your powder dry!

Why are suppressor adapters needed?

When using a suppressor on your project, there is always a lot of things to consider and one of those is whether or not to use a sized silencer or an adapter to couple a suppressor of a different thread to it.

Small adapter to couple 30 caliber rifle silencers to 556 rifles
Small adapter for rifle silecners

We are always looking to make the dollars we have go a little further and adapting a silencer is an easy way to do that. Most suppressors on the market come in one thread pitch or mounting scheme. So adapting those silencers to guns that are setup differently can be a great way to not have to buy a second silencer.

We make quite a few adapters that can couple three primary types of suppressors with them being in one of the following categories.

  1. Direct Thread with a Common Thread Pitch
  2. Mount coupled (The silencer fits a specific mount/device that stays on the host weapon)
  3. Modular mounting designs specifically designed to be used with a large quantity of adapter.

An example of the first one would be our Amendment 7.62 suppressor. This silencer comes threaded 5/8-24 and this is not able to be changed. So we have an adapter that will couple it to 5.56mm rifles typically threaded 1/2-28. This adapter is called the Freedom Coupling and is available on the website.

The second one is really common in todays world and an example of one of these would be our Sovereign rifle silencer. It has a mounting scheme designed to fit a set of mounts that we make for it. It couples to a large diameter thread and breeches on a taper for positive engagement. This can easily be adapted to our Mystic X family of adapters with the Sovereign to Mystic Adapter.

The mystic x kit covers most calibers

The last category is by far our most popular. The modular mounting silencer family. This is a specific family of suppressors and mounts to make adapting the suppressor easy and fast for a plethora of different applications. These mounts are almost endless and couple our popular Mystic X to everything imaginable. We have so many adapters for this silencer, that we have to make multiple pages on the site to cover them all. These can also be used to couple many other suppressors on the market to various host firearms and they are also popular with the project builders in the community. So if oyu have a Form 1 build you are working on, we have the thread spec available to make the rear of your silencer fit our mounts seamlessly.

If you have any questions about adapting a silencer to a firearm, just give us a shout and we will be happy to help.

What about the 6.5 creedmoor suppressed?

What is it with us not making the 6.5 creedmoor suppressed with a dedicated muzzle suppressor? Well let’s take a small look at why.

When we started working on our newest rifle designs like the Sovereign and the Agent, we wanted to make them work as good as possible on as many calibers as possible right out of the chute. This meant testing them on a host of different guns over time and seeing what the numbers say on the sound meter.

What we learned out the 6.5 creedmoor suppressed platform is that we need to be able to make it work on other calibers as well. You see, there really isn’t a huge demand for a dedicated 6.5 creed moor suppressor at this time. The PRS community uses them some but not extensively so we dont see a huge demand for a specialized version of a silencer just for this caliber. What we do see are people wanting a good 308 suppressor that they can also use on their 6.5 creedmoor.

Enter the Sovereign, with the titanium construction and the high pressure optimized baffle structure, these silencers work surprisingly well as a 6.5 creedmoor suppressed platform. When we designed the baffles they were specifically designed to work with our muzzle brake so the rifle can be shot with a brake in places where the silencer cant be employed. Then simply screw the silencer over the brake to turn the brake into a sacrificial blast baffle of sorts for the silencer. The brake does two jobs this way and the end user benefits the whole time…

What we did for a 6.5 creedmoor suppressed platform ultimately was to build a dedicated integral to be able to maximize the silencer for the 6.5 creedmoor and make it as small as possible to keep weight and size to a minimum for the hunter who is fielding the rifle all day. This project which is called the Whitetail is what we feel is the perfect deer rifle for 99% of north american big game.

So ultimately, you have to decide which path is right for you in your silencer journey, do you need a suppressor for a PRS rifle that you will also want to use on your hunting rig or will it only be the hunting rifle and this one will get lots of use? We can help you sort out these questions and much more, so if you need some help with your journey, dont hesitate to give us a call! Until next time, keep your powder dry!

Making a 50 BMG suppressor

When you make a 50 bmg suppressor, there are things to consider. Things that need consideration are like pressure, gas volume, weight and size. All these come secondary to sound suppression but must be considered.

These are the four main things aside from sound performance we looked at when we made the Behemoth 50 bmg suppressor. So lets take a little closer look at those specs.

Pressure… is a funny creature. It can do work, it can be destructive, it can be a byproduct of another job, all sorts of things but for us, it is a problem. We have to design the 50 bmg suppressor to handle incredible levels of pressure as this cartridge is propelling a 750gr bullet at almost 3000 feet per second. This kind of energy delivery takes a lot of pressure. Like from 9000 to 11,500 PSI in most modern bolt action sniper style platforms. So you have to design the silencer to absorb this pressure and then be able to mitigate the noise signature at the same time.

The gas volume of the 50 BMG cartridge is enormous to say the least. There is 290 grains of gunpowder in a 50 BMG round, compare this to a 308 Winchester which has 41 grains of gunpowder and you start to understand how massive the 50 bmg suppressor has to be to handle it. That is 7 times the gunpowder… So this necessitates that a good 50 bmg suppressor be fairly large. We need to be able to capture that gas column and hold onto it momentarily to be able to do the things with it we do and then let it go under controlled conditions.

Weight is an obvious spec that has to be addressed. This is because these guns are meant to be man portable and not crew served. Since we are having to carry this thing in a pack of some sort, we have to keep weight manageable or the soldier will not deploy with it. He will simply choose to leave it behind to conserve space and weight. This is why we chose to make it out of titanium, almost exclusively. We had to keep weight under 3 pounds and titanium allowed us to do that. Another great benefit to titanium is that it is incredibly strong as well as light, these two things made it the obvious choice for the Behemoth.

Size is the final spec we are talking about today with this design. The size is dictated by volume as well as bore t bore aspect ratio. When we decided to build a 50 bmg suppressor, we knew it would be fairly large, but we had no idea it would be as big as it turned out. This was in part due to us also wanting it to be hearing safe at the shooter’s ear. This basically means we wanted it to meter below 140dB at the shooters ear since that is the person that will be closest to the rifle when it is being used. We achieved this metric and then some with it consistency measuring 134 to 136dB at the shooter’s ear. This was only possible through the use of titanium and the size we finally chose to work with.

There was a lot more to designing the Behemoth 50 bmg suppressor, but these are some of the highlights and this gives you a glimpse into the world of making a suppressor for one of the largest rounds out there for civilian use today. Hope you enjoyed this little peek behind the curtain so to speak and until next time, keep your powder dry!

Building a 300 blackout suppressor

This is something that I have personally enjoyed working on over the years. The perfect 300 blackout suppressor is one that has size, weight and sound performance at the forefront of the list of attributes that is has to have. So let’s take a look at my favorite 300 blackout suppressor.

Leonidas Gen 2 main image - 300 blackout integral rifle silencer - best 300 blackout
Leonidas Gen 2 ready to go!

The first and absolutely best 300 blackout suppressor that we know of it the Leonidas Gen 2 integrally suppressed AR15 upper. This is a personal pet project that has evolved into one of the very best suppressed 300 blackout rifles on the market in our opinion. We use titanium in the construction of the core, there is very specific geometry to prevent things like gas pinging that makes the silencer ring like a bell so to speak. We also have VERY caliber specific baffle geometry that is optimized for the subsonic variant of the cartridges that are on the market. This doesnt mean that you cant use supersonic rounds in the Leonidas, it will work great with those too, but to see the real magic, you need to shoot subsonic ammunition in it.

There are so many little nuanced things that have been done to this design over the years to improve it that I could probably write an entire book called ” The Ultimate 300 Blackout Suppressor “… Things like putting the gas block inside the silencer module allows us to capture leaking barrel pressure gas around the gas block as well as adding significant volume to the expansion chamber to lower to pressure of the gas column so the baffle stack can handle it easier. We also have improvements in barrel technology as well by using specifically designed barrels that have a tighter twist rate to help stabilize the heavy, subsonic bullets available today for this caliber.

Why are rifle suppressors still loud?

Let’s take a short look at what makes a rifle silencer seem loud when they are obviously still making the gun quieter.

When we think of what a rifle with a silencer sounds like, we automatically think of movie guns. Suppressor sounds in the movies for a long time have been creatures of the imagination of the foley artists and nothing more. This gives the general public a misconception of what a silencer should actually sound like.

30 cal suppressor, suppressor for 6.5 grendel, integrally suppressed rifle
Sovereign 30 cal suppressor on a long range rifle.

The first thing we have to understand is that the bullet exiting a 30 cal suppressor, like the Amendment silencer, is basically traveling Mach 2.7 right out of the gun. So with something going this fast, there will be an associated sonic boom as the bullet passes through the sound barrier. This sonic boom is proportional in size to the object so it makes a loud “pop” instead of a boom like we are used to hearing when a fighter jet passes over that is supersonic (which as I understand it, they are not supposed to do)… This pop is very loud at about 135dB usually, this makes the bullet in flight, the loudest part of the gun firing when there is a suppressor for 6.5 grendel, integrally suppressed rifles or any other rifle silencer installed IF the measured sound comes in at about that number. Since we have no way of suppressing this level of sound this will make it to the sound meter no matter what.

The usual 30 cal suppressor, a suppressor for 6.5 grendel (we recommend the Sovereign suppressor for this application), and even integrally suppressed rifles all suffer from this phenomenon. These are some of the carbines and rifles we see that have silencers installed on them that will also have people question why the silencer doesnt make it quieter. Once we get the bullet below the speed of sound, integrally suppressed rifles in particular sounds much better.

The Zulu integrally suppressed 5.56mm AR15 rifle is a great option.

Lastly, understand one other thing about rifle silencers as well. They are dealing with a lot more energy than pistol or rimfire calibers firearms. This fact alone makes designing a 30 cal suppressor that is super quiet a daunting task right out of the gate. We have done it with several of our models, but it is not easy to do. Even our integrally suppressed rifles like the Leonidas or Zulu are great examples of this concept. So if you have questions concerning getting a suppressor for your rifle, or just need to ask us about something we make in general, just reach out to us at 706-661-6911 and we will be happy to help. Until next time, keep your powder dry!

A Silencer for 450 Bushmaster

This is a subject that has been coming up more and more. A silencer for 450 bushmaster is a interesting proposition to be honest. When looking at this cartridge, one has to consider the huge volume of gas as well as the large bore diameter the suppressor needs for this caliber.

We always suggest something like the Goliath for this cartridge as it has the best sound characteristics when it comes to a silencer for 450 bushmaster. Nothing that we are aware of beats this silencer for sound signature. It also has the ability to be a suppressor for marlin 45-70 as well. The 45-70 is a very similar performing cartridge as the 450 bushmaster so they will perform very well with the Goliath .458 socom suppressor.

What makes the Goliath silencer so good? Well, three things in particular. The material of construction is almost all titanium so it is incredibly light weight for it’s size. It is large enough to deal with the huge volume of gas that these cartridges produce and lastly, it is engineered specifically for these large bore, high volume calibers.

silencer suppressor carbine AR15
Goliath makes a great 308 suppressor as well.

We chose titanium to do tow things in particular, one was to dissipate heat rapidly. which titanium does well. The second thing was that we could make the silencer light weight as titanium is a very strong material as well. Titanium is also very rigid so there is little to no baffle flex with these powerful rounds and this translates into better accuracy on target and more repeatable results over time. Another thing to consider is that this silencer can also be used on other calibers as well since it will clear anything in diameter smaller than 45 caliber. Things like the 338 Lapua Magnum and 408 Chey Tac are perfect examples of large caliber rounds this silencer can work with. IT is also light enough from the use of titanium to be a viable hunting silencer as well. It can basically do everything you need in a rifle silencer and we also ship it with an Armageddon gear suppressor cover so when you shoot the mighty 450 Bushmaster through it, you wont have to deal with heat mirage for several rounds on your hunt.

So if you have questions about the Goliath silencer and how it works as a silencer for 450 Bushmaster, just call us at 706-661-6911 or shoot us an email, which is plastered all over the website. Till next time, keep your powder dry!

What makes a premium 308 suppressor…premium?

When looking at 308 suppressor choices there is an amazing amount of models to consider. Well, the one that no one seems to talk about is the premium suppressor. So today we will look at our premium 308 suppressor and go over what makes it “premium”.

Sovereign 308 suppressor on a hunting rifle.

The first thing is material it is made from. The Sovereign is made from titanium almost exclusively. This metal is a wonder metal by almost all measurements, it is lighter and stronger than steel. It handles heat really well with a melting point 400 degrees higher than that of steel. There are only two real issues with it…the cost and how difficult it is to work. Both of these factors drive up the price of a premium silencer too. The raw material is several times more expensive than stainless steel so that automatically passes through to the retail price by necessity. The other factor drive price through several channels like: increased tool usage, slower cycle times which translates into less productivity with the same fixed costs, greater difficulty in finishing tasks like deburring and such. All of this adds additional machine hours, man hours and tooling costs to the final product. So when you look at the Sovereign and wonder why it is so much more than an Amendment silencer, these are some of the reasons why.

The next thing that makes a premium 308 suppressor “premium” is adaptability. This comes in several forms but the most common is multiple mounting solutions like QD mounts or what we have with the Sovereign, TOMB mounts. TOMB is an acronym meaning Thread Over Muzzle Brake and is where the connection for the silencer is part of the rear of the muzzle brake where the suppressor can be screwed over the brake so the brake does not have to be removed from the gun when the silencer is not in use. This does a couple of things for the end user, like protect the muzzle of the rifle when the silencer is not installed from impact damage like banging it into things. The muzzle threads are also not worn from repeated install and uninstalls of the silencer module. It also leaves a very effective muzzle brake on the rifle for when the suppressor is not needed…although I would argue this is never…

Another feature of premium 308 suppressor designs is exit aperture options. This comes in the form of replaceable front caps so if there is a front cap strike, then it can be repaired easily without having to scrap the whole silencer. Also other end cap options are available like the muzzle brake front cap where we add up to 10% additional braking with a muzzle brake on the end of the silencer. We all know the most effective brakes are nearest to the muzzle of the rifle as this is where the gas pressure is the greatest, but we still get moderate braking at the end of the Sovereign silencer as well, so we offer this option.

Finally there are the accessories, like the Sovereign comes with a Armageddon Gear mirage cover that protects the view of the shooter for many round from heat mirage distortion in the optical view. This is not a fireproof cover, but is instead a high insulation factor thermal protection device to reduce thermal mirage from obscuring the shootings view of the target. All covers will eventually “soak” through with heat, but this one is the best one we have found for this application so it is bundled with the Sovereign for this reason.

Custom Armageddon Gear covers are shipped with the Sovereign 308 suppressor.

There you go, a few reason why premium rifle silencers like the Sovereign 308 suppressor are a little more costly than other models and now you have some information to help you decide if these reasons fit your needs.. If you need more information then you can call us (706)-661-6911 or email (it is on this website everywhere) and we will be happy to help. Until next time, keep your powder dry!

The Amendment: A simple yet effective 308 suppressor

When you think of a 308 suppressor, a lot of the time what comes to mind is all these fancy QD silencers that are on the market. That is fine and all if your wanting to build out a complete system and install special adapters on your rifles for them.

The Amendment 308 suppressor is simple to install and use.

What we have found though, is that most people that want a 308 suppressor typically want it for their hunting rig. This ends up being a bolt action rifle for the most part and it is also one that goes in to the field. That last part is important. Carrying a rifle for more than 30 or 40 yards to the shooting line at a rifle range, is way different than taking your rifle to the stand in the field where you might be carrying it for hundreds of yards and even up to miles… A few ounces doesnt seem like a big deal on paper, but ounces turn into pain when that gun strap is sitting on your collar bone for several hours.

Eliminating all the bulk and weight of QD mounting items and special modular designs with interchangeable widgets makes the silencer simple and light without the need for super exotic alloys to keep weight manageable. This makes the Amendment in a class by itself since it has good suppression, weight and size all in a affordable package that can be left to a dedicated rig. Another aspect that fits this well is that it works so well in this application that most people install the silencer and zero the rifle with it installed and leave it on the rifle till the season is finished…or they never remove it…

We have many silencer options to fits the needs of the end user.

This gives you the simplicity of knowing that the zero is this or that IF… it is just zeroed. Get it out and use it. Adding a 308 suppressor to the rifle system should be simple and the Amendment is that. It has the threaded socket on the back that fits the standard 5/8-24 threads and you simply screw it onto your rifle and your done. Nothing to time or shim, just put the silencer on your rifle and goto the range to zero it. Your done. So if it your planning on setting up your hunting rig with a dedicated silencer, just give us a shout and we will be happy to help you sort out what would be best for you. Till next time, keep your powder dry!

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 constitution is right at home on your 556 SBR as well as a host of other guns.
The constitution is right at home on your 556 SBR as well as a host of other guns.

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.

Once you have decided these things, the next step to get one in process. This is really easy if you just reach out to us, we will be happy to assist you in getting the ball rolling. So until then, keep your powder dry!

Why use silencers?

When I get this question, it brings back memories of a time before I knew I could own these mythical devices. As silencers grew in popularity I was drawn to using them on every gun I owned. This was because there is an allure to not having to deal with the enormous bang associated with the gunshot. Once you have used firearms without silencers for a while, you get accustomed to the report of the firearm. This conditions you to respond in like kind, typically with a flinch for most people as the sound is so loud that it trips the “fight or flight” response temporarily. This is because sounds this loud are not normal in nature. You see, even if you dont know it, your brain does. This means that humans should never be around sounds over 120dB in normal circumstances, and even the lowly 22LR is louder than this with the use of silencers.

9mm multipurpose silencer suppressor 7.62 suppressor 9mm silencer

We normally suggest people get a suppressor for their favorite gun first then once that one is understood as to how a firearm should sound, we suggest getting another one. This gives the user time to get comfortable with the aspect of using the silencer and all the benefits that come with it. A great starter silencer is the Mystic X as it allows the user to put a silencer on many different firearms with really good results. It even has excellent results on several calibers even though is it not optimal on for them. Given the numerous mounting options that come with the Mystic X silencer, this also makes it easy to adapt to a large variety of firearms. It is literally a “Swiss army knife” in the silencer world. Many silencers work well in specific applications, but the Mystic X stands alone in the world of multi caliber suppressor designs. This is just a little taste of what information is out there for the silencer user, so until next time, keep your powder dry!

Choosing a 308 suppressor…

OK, now this seems obvious, but let me explain, a 308 suppressor is something of an anomaly these days.

You can get silencers in all kinds of flavors these days in all sorts of metals and finishes. But which ones are really best suited for your 308 Winchester rifle? Well, let’s take a look at a couple of viable options today.

The sovereign is a very versatile 308 suppressor.

The first option is the obvious one. The Sovereign silencer is a 7.62mm suppressor designed for rifle use. Just the other day we were shooting a Sovereign silencer on a 7mm Remington Magnum rifle and it worked flawlessly. The combination of titanium tube and core makes this silencer light weight and a perfect fit for your 308 suppressor needs. It has a ton of features like the interchangeable from plates that even include a muzzle brake cap design. The rear is also a adapter design allowing the use of several different interchangeable mounts to allow fitment to 1/2-28 threaded rifles, 5/8-24 threaded rifles and we also have muzzle brakes and flash suppressor mounts that fit it as well.

The Amendment 308 suppressor is a bargain for the casual shooter.

The next choice that is readily available and works really well is the Amendment 7.62mm silencer. This 308 suppressor is designed from the ground up for the 7.62mm bullet at rifle power levels. This includes many calibers other than 308 Winchester, but it is a great option for this round. The Amendment is also very economical coming in at almost half the cost of the Sovereign silencer. This is because we eliminated everything from the design that isnt absolutely needed for it to function. So it only have the 5/8-24 threaded socket on the end and this is made into the silencer. Honestly, a 308 suppressor is almost always going to be attached with this thread anyway so that is why we chose it for the Amendment silencer. It also doesn’t have any of the interchangeable features of the Sovereign suppressor. This eliminates so many machining operations and time that the cost is dramatically reduced. Sound performance is still really good though so even though you are sacrificing several features, this is one that is not being sacrificed. To be honest about it, the Sovereign is still a little quieter, but if cost is an issue, this one gets you 90% of the performance for 50% of the price.

The Mystic X silencer would also be another great choice for your 308 suppressor needs.

Once last option for a 308 suppressor is a Mystic X multi purpose silencer, this is because it is considered the best multi caliber suppressor out there by many. It performs rather well on rifle calibers and has a plethora of mounts to choose from so it is easy to adapt it to your rifle. Oddball threads? No problem here, need a suppressor cover? We got you fam. This thing isnt called the sis army knife of silencers for nothing. So if you want versatility more than anything else, then the Mystic X will be your choice. It gives you so much versatility that it sometimes overwhelms the user with options… Dont worry though, if you need advice on a setup, just give us a call and we will be happy to help you sort out the problems.

So there you have it, three different 308 suppressor options that you might or might not have considered and if you need assistance, like I said earlier, just give us a call or shoot us an email, we will be happy to help. Until next time, keep your powder dry!

Need a firearm suppressor?

The web is filled with things to capture your attention these days and finding the information you need is getting harder and harder. So how do you navigate this mine field? Goto the source. for suppressor needs, you have come to the right place.

suppressor

A suppressor is a very specific thing that most people need and just dont know it. With 100 million gun owners in the US now (estimated) the need for firearm suppressors has never been greater. We have realized this almost 20 years ago and have been supplying high quality suppressors for the industry and have also been constantly innovating on those designs as we go as well.

The need to innovate has driven us to create many class leading designs over the years in the suppressor world. To name a few, we would look to the Regulator rimfire suppressor that has some of the best suppression in the industry even though it is a monolithic core design.

Another design that leads in the industry is the Leonidas 300 Blackout integral suppressor. This integral was class leading in the original iteration and has been improved significantly with the release of the generation 2 variant. The world of integral suppressor design has always intrigued us here at Liberty Suppressors and we feel every gun should come with a silencer as standard equipment. Integrals are a natural evolution of this concept.

When you decide to add a quality silencer to your host weapons ,we are here to help with that. The process can seem burdensome to some, but in reality it really isnt. There is an extra form or two to fill and and an extra fee to pay one time, so it isnt that bad. We can explain it in detail when you call. If you are a first time owner, we have a couple other blog posts as to what we would recommend, but suffice it to say, the Mystic X usually gets the nod as it gives you the most bang for the buck…or is it the least bang… LOL

If you need to to talk to us about owning a silencer, just give us a call at 706-661-6911 or shoot us an email to support@libertycans.net and we will get you the information you need.

Which 9mm suppressor and why?

When choosing a 9mm suppressor, there is a few things to consider whether you’re a first time buyer or a seasoned owner. So let’s get into this and see what works for you from what we have seen.

9mm suppressor

The first thing to do is determine if you are looking to dip your toe into silencers or if you have already gotten one or two and are now looking for something specific. If it is a first timer, then we always recommend something like the Mystic X over a dedicated 9mm design more like the Centurion. The reason for this is that most people want to see how a silencer sounds on lots of guns when they get into the game and this allows them do it if the silencer is a multi caliber silencer.

So what people normally do is get a multi caliber silencer first then once they have one of these, they will normally get a more specialized suppressor next. This way they can cover lots of guns to start with then they can get one for their favorite gun and leave that as a set.Now the veteran suppressor owner will normally want something more specialized. This is where custom built integrals normally come into play as well. We see this in our office pretty regularly. A custom 9mm integral bolt rifle or lever gun is usually something chosen after they have a good multi caliber suppressor.

The best multi caliber suppressor in our opinion is the Infiniti X and for many good reasons. This mainly has to do with two things though, the material of choice and the design of the baffles. The baffle structure is such that it will suppress many calibers effectively and really well on a large percentage of them. The material is almost entirely titanium so it is super strong and also super light. This combination makes it arguably the best multi caliber suppressor ever made.

Now, when people move away from a multi cal silencer the idea of integrals really comes to the front just as we mentioned earlier. There is a another camp of owners that we have not mentioned yet. The camp that wants a dedicated suppressor for every gun they have.

These people will normally not care about ATF wait times or the cost of tax stamps, as they literally will buy a silencer every month or two and “always have something in transfer” so they seemingly dont have a long wait time between purchases. They people are the most awesome as they have learned how to game a system that is burdened with a ton of red tape. So which are you? Give us a call and talk to us about your next 9mm suppressor at 706-661-6911 and until next time, keep your powder dry!

A trick to adjusting POI on a 9mm silencer

When you use a 9mm silencer, there is a plethora of added parts to the pistol system that can affect accuracy. The silencer is the last part of that system and because of that, has the most potential to affect Point of Impact.

Cutaway booster assembly

How a 9mm silencer works with a booster

The first thing we have to understand is how the pistol and silencer work together. The part that connects the two devices is called a “Booster”. This little mechanism is a wonderful invention that allows the pistol to function with the added mass of the silencer to be attached to the end of the barrel. It also decouples the silencer momentarily from the gun so that the barrel can move before the the silencer does. This allows the gun to unlock and cycle in a new cartridge while the silencer “floats” in space in front of the gun. To keep this assembly repeatable, we have the booster indexed with little teeth inside the booster. There are ten of these teeth in the booster and ten slots that they fit into them. Our booster design for the Mystic X 9mm silencer family is designed in such a way that you can index the silencer in 36 degree increments.

So what this means is that we can unlock the booster and index it to a different position in the booster housing. The method to do this is pretty simple in our 9mm silencer assembly since the booster is not keyed for the full length of travel. Simply unload the gun, we dont want someone getting hurt doing this. Then grab the silencer and pull it away from the gun until the teeth in the booster clear the slots they fit into. Turn the silencer a little and reset the teeth into the next slot so not the teeth are shifted on slot in either the right or the left. This will also shift bullet impact as the silencer will impart a “nudge” to the bullet in flight due to the gas turbulence in the 9mm silencer.

silencer booster assembly
Various generations of Liberty boosters

When you shoot at the target the next time, you will notice the group will have shift somewhat to a new location based on the new index location of the booster. We here at Liberty will normally shift impact by indexing the booster until the group is at the 12 o’clock location and possibly high as it is simpler to aim based on a vertical location than any other. Normally this isnt a very large shift, but sometimes there are factors outside of our control and the planets just dont align. It is a thing that some guns just dont cohabitate with a silencer installed, but most do and this works 99.9% of the time. So if your groups are somewhere odd when you shoot suppressed, this may be the solve you are looking for. Until next time, keep your powder dry!

The Liberty Tool Kit for silencer maintenance.

Silencer maintenance

The subject of silencer maintenance comes up fro time to time at Liberty and we work hard to support our users with equipment and information to help them with their suppressor experience. The main thing that comes up after how to install a suppressor is how do I take care of this thing? Do I clean it with the same stuff I use on my gun? Do I just use it and never maintenance it? These and many more come in regularly.

We suggest different regimens for different silencers. Take for instance, the Mystic X, this silencer is even marketed as take-apart. This tells the user that it is intended to be dismantled for cleaning or inspection. So people do just that, but sometimes they are not properly equipped to do this job. The proper tools will enable the user to take the suppressor apart and reassemble it without damage to the finish and it will also make the job easier at the same time.

To give you a simple run down for different silencers, follow this general guideline. If the silencer is a rimfire gun, then it needs cleaning every time the gun gets cleaned. Rimfire is very dirty and makes the silencer very dirty at the same time, so this means you should never shoot rimfire through a silencer that is not take apart in design. 9mm suppressor use is also a very common application and this is also a very dirty operation that requires regular maintenance and will serve you well to have the Liberty Tool Kit. Almost all rifle use does not normally need to clean the silencer. The rifle build up is minimal and for most people the time it takes to build up enough material to make a difference is decades. Heavy 556 use can fill up a suppressor in a year or two, but this is normal and is not a warranty item, so rebuilding the suppressor at the factory every few years is normal service work if you shoot tens of thousands of rounds per year and should be factored into the maintenance costs of using the rifle/suppressor combo. The same as replacing worn parts on the rifle, the silencer also have to be serviced. It is normal to have to do this, so just keep that in mind.

The proper tools…

The proper tools to maintain your silencer can vary from can to can. These tools are specially designed to work with your suppressor specifically and will be the best solution for your needs. The Liberty Tool Kit is designed for the Mystic X, Infiniti X, Cosmic and Centurion silencers specifically. These are all engineered with the same basic concept of assembly and these tools will work on all of them equally well. The Liberty Tool Kit contains a special tool that is not normally purchased by our silencer owners. This is the driver tool, it is used to protect the internal threads of the core when removing it from the tube and it also helps with holding the core while cleaning off material buildup.

Other tools in the Liberty Tool Kit are the ring wrench that is used to remove the tube retaining ring, the Liberty Multi-wrench and a nylon pouch to store the tools in when not in use. The ring wrench is the one tool we see not used the most as the retaining ring can get stuck from carbon build up and people will use pliers to remove it, lacking the ring wrench. This is terrible as it always chews up the retaining ring. This kit solves that. So when you grab your Dakota Tactical D54 and your Infinti X silencer, know that you can maintain this system properly with the Liberty Tool Kit.

Armageddon Gear Mystic X 9mm Suppressor Cover

Suppressors get hot during use. This is why we collaborated with Armageddon Gear to make a thermal heat shield cover for our most popular 9mm suppressor we offer.

Custom embroidery Armageddon Gear silencer cover.

9mm Suppressor Heat Problems

The 9mm suppressor that we are talking about here could be either the Mystic X or Infiniti X multi caliber suppressor. The silencers in use here also multi-purpose, so they are often used on rifles as well as pistols. The rifle use is really where we see the need for these suppressor covers from Armageddon Gear. When a suppressor is being used on a rifle it will absorb a tremendous amount of heat from the gas column passing through it. This heat is dissipated in two different ways. The first is regenerated back into the tail end of the gas column like a traditional gas regenerator and the second is through regular old conduction to the atmosphere around the outside of the silencer. This normally isnt a real problem, unless you want to see your sights and the target so you can line them up for a followup shot or something like that… Enter the suppressor cover, this wonderful device simply slips over the existing silencer and insulates it from the atmosphere temporarily to slow the radiation of the heat to the outside.

Notice I said it “slows” the radiation of heat, this is because it doesn’t stop the heat, but simply slows it down. The heat will eventually soak through and then the cover and suppressor will have to cool before use. Also, if your cover isnt made from special high temp materials, you can get the suppressor hot enough to melt covers like this Armageddon Gear suppressor cover. This cover is not a severe duty design to prevent burns at extreme temps but is designed to reduce heat mirage for follow up shots in a hunting situation. Those applications are different from the purpose of this one. So at the end of the day, this cover works perfectly for hunters and recreational target shooters or even entry teams that fire minimal amount of rounds on an entry. Another benefit from the cover is that since it is not metal, when it rubs on a limb in the woods, it will have a much more subdued sound opposed to the high pitched sound of titanium tubing rubbing on a branch in the forest.

Armageddon Gear suppressor covers just keep giving…

Another benefit from using a suppressor cover is that it breaks up the color pattern of the black part on the end of the barrel. It basically camouflages the firearm somewhat by adding the color to the end. Then finally there is one last benefit of using a suppressor cover…it helps you not to get burned! Yep, it will reduce the chances of getting burned from a hot suppressor. LOL I had to throw that in just for fun. Anyway, these are just some of the benefits of using the Armageddon Gear suppressor cover. Until next time, keep your powder dry.

What ammo do I need for my 9mm suppressor?

When looking over things that people frequently ask us about the world of suppressor ownership, one of the main things we find is ammunition choice for a 9mm suppressor.

Ammunition comes in two basic flavors in the world of 9mm suppressor ownership, and you need to start thinking in these terms if you want to get the most out of your 9mm suppressor. Super-sonic ammunition and subsonic ammunition.

Super sonic ammunition for 9mm silencer use.

When shooting super sonic ammunition through your 9mm suppressor, it will suppress the gun’s “bang” but there is a second noise that the silencer can not suppress.The supersonic flight noise of the projectile flying to the target is much louder than most people realize and is the number one complaint of a new silencer owner when they goto the range for the first time without knowing about this kind of ammunition to use. This is a common complaint and we have tried many different methods to educate people on it, but it is still a problem with new owners. For 9mm use, ammunition is running right at the super-sonic threshold and sometimes goes over this point. This speed is approximately 1070 feet per second and varies with all sorts of parameters, but understand that it is close to this number and if you go too fast, it will “crack” because the projectile is make a mini sonic boom as it flies down to the target.

Subsonic ammunition of 9mm suppressor use.

This is the most desirable ammunition for most applications. We understand that in some applications that certain ammo is needed, but for the most part this will be the ammo that you will want to use. The easiest way to know if the ammunition is subsonic is to shoot it. If it sounds super good and like a staple gun then it is subsonic, lol. At least that is how it should sound coming from one of our 9mm suppressors like the Infiniti X pistol silencer. All joking aside, some ammunition will be marked on the box as such. Another way to tell is to look at the bullet weight of the rounds you are thinking about using. if the bullet weight is 124 grains or less it is almost certainly super sonic ammunition. If the bullet weight is 147 grains or heavier then it will almost always be subsonic ammunition. There are instances where this doesnt work, but for the most part, it does.

Another thing to remember is that some 9mm subsonic ammunition is designed to be slow enough by reducing the energy of the powder charge. This will normally produce two things at once. The first is a nice sounding suppressor, the second is erratic cycling or failed cycling of the host weapon entirely. We have seen this often with handholds, the speeds are crazy slow and super quiet, but the gun wont cycle reliably. The recoil booster on the pistol silencer will help sometimes with this, but not always, there has to be enough energy to overcome the guns system as designed and some additional drag from the suppressor as well or it wont operate as intended.

These are the main things we look for when looking for ammunition for our 9mm systems with silencers installed on them. So if you have anymore questions, click on this link to be taken to the website for help.

What is the best type of suppressor in 2023?

Suppressors come in many shapes and sizes. So when you are looking for the best type of suppressor, we want to look at several factors like application, price, familiarity with the process of ownership, what other suppressors owned, ect. Let’s take a look at these factors and see if we can clear up some of the confusion for people looking to get a new silencer.

Application

A lot of people that are new to silencers will want a one size fits all approach, but once this desire is filled, they start wanting another suppressor, but dont know exactly what they want. Here is my “secret sauce” test to see what I would recommend next for the person wanting another suppressor, but not knowing what that silencer is.

It takes a little time, but it works 100% of the time too. If you really want to get another suppressor and do the whole ownership process and spend the money and time to do it, then do this test first. It will save you a lot of buyers remorse down the road.

Get one of the little pocket notebooks or even start a note on your iPhone and every time you goto the range, log what you shoot, roughly how many rounds with that gun, and then literally any notes about what you was thinking about like, “wanting to shoot 22LR suppressor today but only had my Infiniti X so I used that.” These journal entry notes will give you a crazy amount of clarity on what you really want in a silencer versus what the current hotness is that you are looking at online.

I recommend logging at least ten range sessions before reading the results too so you can have some data points that are starting to lead you in a direction. Standard engineering practice is to collect at least 30 data points minimum, but sometimes we dont want to wait that long on picking our next suppressor…

Suppressor Price

This is a big one for a lot of people. This is why there are literally dozens of suppressor companies out there now at all price points. People have different budgets, valuations and desires. Once you figure out the caliber, now you can start looking at silencers in this caliber area and considering what your specs will be based on price point.

Say you want a 556 suppressor now that you have seen you shoot tons of 556 at your range sessions. So there are low cost 556 direct thread suppressors, mid level QA 556 silencer, and even high end special application 556 cans including things like the Zulu integral and titanium silencers like the Agent.

You are the only person that can decide how much a silencer should cost for you. Choosing a integral suppressor is a big decision and one that you will have to live with for quite some time, maybe even till you depart this realm. This being said, you should consider how much you will enjoy this purchase over the next few years and only you can decide this. Suppressors in the USA are built very well since the NFA makes ownership more complicated, so picking one that fits your desires is critical.

Process of Ownership (in the USA)

The process of ownership in the USA is kinda burdensome, and that is probably by design. Normally when congress passes a law about something they dont like, they will make the legal path to that activity very cumbersome for the person wanting to participate legally in the activity. Suppressor ownership is one of these activities and the process of ownership has to be factored in. The process for suppressor ownership in the US is something like this. You purchase the suppressor and then file some forms with the NFA branch of the ATF to transfer ownership to your from the gunstore. This process can take upwards of a year and I have seen it happen very fast too, you just really dont know for certain, but normally it take 8 months or so from the averages I have seen for the forms to clear. Then once the forms clear the ATF, you goto the gun store and pick up your suppressor with a traditional 4473 like any other gun purchase. This is the super simplified version, but you get the idea.

What other suppressor designs do you own?

The reason this one matters is that most people dont want to have redundant silencers to start out. They look to expand the range of guns that they can suppress and this usually involves getting different kinds of suppressors so they can cover these guns. The world of suppressor ownership is unique in that we have literally “do everything” silencers and the opposite end of the spectrum…integral suppressors. The integrals are the ones that most people become infatuated with after owning a couple of suppressor designs that are more versatile.

With all this I want to say, that there are no hard and fast rules to choosing your next suppressor, but these are the typical routes that most people follow. The integrally suppressed rifle is something that a lot of people wont find appealing in the beginning as it is a “one trick pony” and they can only use it like this, but after a while, this starts to look more and more appealing and people will gravitate to these eventually. Just seems to be human nature. Anyway, hope this was helpful and until next time, keep your powder dry!

What finish is on my 9mm suppressor?

We have used many finishes over the years on our 9mm suppressor designs, but the most prolific and widely used has been and continues to be, NiB Cerakote. There is good reason for the use of this coating too, it is durable, relatively easy to apply, heat resistant and it looks good.

But before we delve too deep into our current coating let’s step back in time a little to look at what coatings we have used in the past that has led to the adoption of Cerakote.

The first coating we used back in the day was KG Gunkote that we bought from Brownells in the little spray cans. It is a thermal cure epoxy based coating that is durable and comes in many colors, it is also really easy to apply, and you heat cure it with an oven. This last feature is also it’s downfall. It seems that silencers get really hot at times and this is an epoxy based coating, which if you didnt know, is basically plastic. So we would see 9mm suppressor warranties come back for a variety of things and one was that the finish had burned off really fast.

Another finish we have used in the past, and yes…even on our 9mm suppressor models, is natural metal finish, also known as “in the white” in machine shop circles.This is a rather difficult one to pull off though as it ends up that you can scratch it so easily. It looks really good though and we have done it a lot in the past. The good thing about this finish is that it doesnt burn off and we do not have to outsource the finishing. Just polish it out in the same machines you cut it out on and your done.

22lr suppressor

The next evolution in our silencer finishing journey in salt bath nitride. We used this finish for several years on a few of our suppressor models, but only on part of our 9mm suppressor parts. The Mystic X and it’s family all share a tube retaining ring that is black nitride treated. This is a great finish, but typically leaves the metal with a shiney finish… (not something you would want on a 9mm suppressor) So what we have figured out is that we have to prepare the retaining rings by media blasting them first to matte finish them prior to nitride coating. This makes them a nice dull black that is also durable.

Then we arrive at Type C Cerakote, the finish that we feel is the perfect finish for a silencer. This coating is incredible in that it can withstand an enourmous amount of heat, which even 9mm suppressor use can generate. This typically comes from either 5.56mm NATO as it is a very hot round when run through a silencer. Another is 9mm NATO when run full auto through a silencer. These two scenarios can easily burn off the finish of a painted silencer that is coated with something like Gunkote, or any of the thermal set resin type finishes. So we opted for the most durable finish we could find when we chose Cerakote as we just wanted it to work.

I hope you enjoyed this little discussion on why we use the finish we use and until next time, keep your powder dry!

Know the Laws

Suppressors are regulated by the National Firearms Act, so it’s important to know the ins and outs of the law before making a purchase.

Christmas Ideas that are easy!

When you think of silencers, you think that the process involves forms and time, but did oyu know that Liberty Suppressors also has a ton of other stuff that is not regulated like suppressors?

silencer liberty suppressors suppressor rifle silencer

We have all sorts of things like Cole-tac Boss Bags, Armageddon Gear suppressor covers and even Dead Air Keymo mounts!

If you think about it, the Dead Air Keymo mount is one of the best values in non-regulated items in the suppressor world. The Dead Air Keymo mount works on a large quantity of different silencers and in our opinion, it is the best QD mount available in 2022. So if the Dead Air Keymo mount is something that you have been looking at picking up, now is the time! We have limited stock on hand and they are ready to go.

Now, shifting to the body of the silencer, if you shoot long range or just target shoot more than a few rounds at a time, you know that heat mirage is a huge problem with scoped rifles. This is why we have the Armageddon Gear suppressor cover as an option for people on many of our silencers. The Armageddon Gear suppressor cover allows the user to shoot their rifle many more times than would be possible without the Armageddon Gear suppressor cover before heat mirage makes target acquisition possible. You see heat rises off of the silencer when you shoot and this heat causes mirage to distort the view through the scope or even mechanical sights… So if you hunt with your silencer another benifit of having a Armageddon Gear suppressor cover is that the noise of the suppressor rubbing against foliage is toned down and made to be more subdued and not sound so foreign in nature. Armageddon Gear suppressor cover is made of ballistic materials and this cloth has a more appropriate color in the field as well. It blends in really well.

Last but not least is the Cole-tac Boss Bag. This device is not for the silencer directly, but instead it aids in aiming the rifle and supports the shooter in odd positions. The Cole-tac Boss Bag is a support system that the PRS community has been using for a while now and is an invaluable resource for field ops as well. At the range, the Cole-tac Boss Bag keeps the gun nice and steady when confirming zero or shooting groups to confirm which handholds perform the best or even to just put your elbow on so you dont rest on the bench, it has tons of uses. The Cole-tac Boss Bag is lightweight and works really well when out hunting too. If oyu need a good steady bag at the lady of the rifle that is still lightweight, then the Cole-tac Boss Bag is just the thing for you. It just works and works and works…
