Nice. Am I seeing the attachment right, looks to work off the choke tube threads?
"The suppressor attaches to the the existing choke threads via an adapter. Due to differences in shotgun manufacturer and choke preference, it is important that you select the correct adapter."

It has to have a different baffle design to keep the wad closed passing through, it was my understanding that as long as one necessary part was serialized and regulated, the other parts could be rearranged/replaced as desired.

I'd imagine duck hunters would be big purchasers of it, my hearing is damaged from shooting, one shot on a turkey or deer isn't a big deal but after a duck hunt my ears will ring for a day or two. With earplugs you can't hear them flying over you from behind. Most ranges are going to require ear pro regardless of suppression, and I don't see it working great for tactical uses unfortunately. If it were paired with a short enough barrel to not be cumbersome moving through buildings you would have very little magazine capacity as it hangs over the mag tube. I suppose it could be spaced to index on the barrel sideways and then attach the barrel to the gun. That would require something like an 870 with a mag extension tube though instead of the 590A1 with a long factory magazine tube.

It would also be nice if they partnered with gun manufacturers to offer it as an "integrated barrel", at least for common guns. Most manufacturers offer 14" barrels for LEO use, Silencerco could buy them direct and pins/welds the can on, 26" total. :smokin:

maybe the removable sections aren't chambers. Maybe they are "solid" at that diameter, so when removed as stand alone they cant be called a baffle.


I'm just WAGing here....
Doesn't matter if its a baffle or not. ATF has always said, parts are parts. Any extra part is no bueno.

SS expects them to be on the shelf in a couple of weeks with a price of 1K ish

Apparently they've already danced with ATF on it, it seems they are putting these out on the street.


Until some changes their minds. Again.

But whats to stop anybody from taking any user serviceable suppressor and using it with some parts removed?
Would be difficult to shoot through any can with missing baffles. At least, not more than once.

Nothing at all. The difference is, they are marketing this as being tunable, meaning you can remove parts and use it.
The ATF has always said you can NOT do that and has denied everyone that tried before this.

.

I know that.

Don't get me wrong, I hope they found a way around the ATF's position. If they did, it will change the way suppressors are made

Talked with my dealer yesterday.
He is saying he will have them right around Christmas or New years. Street price will be right at 1k.

Im thinking one of these on a little Serbu would be an awesome toy...
