Whether used for hunting, training or general plinking, suppressors are a “booming” segment of the firearms industry. In addition to the improved safety and training benefits of using suppressors, regulations in many states are trending towards civilian ownership and hunting permittance.
Suppressor manufacturers have taken notice of these trends and adjusted their research, development and production accordingly. Several manufacturers who never produced suppressors before are investing in the industry with new offerings. We’re also experiencing innovations within the mounting systems of these muzzle devices, which enable more user-friendly attachment and interchangeability from one firearm to another.
The result? We have better suppressors available to shooters now than ever before. Below we’ve listed several of our favorite new suppressors available in 2015.
<h2>SilencerCo Omega Suppressor</h2>Utah-based <a href= "http://www.silencerco.com/" target= "_blank">SilencerCo</a> made some waves in the summer of 2014 with its <a href= "http://www.shotgunnews.com/first-look/first-look-silencerco-salvo-12-shotgun-suppressor/" target= "_blank">Salvo 12</a> shotgun suppressor, perhaps the first design ever to reliably shoot both slugs and birdshot. In 2015, the company looks ready to expand on its success with a few new additions to its suppressor lineup. The <a href= "http://www.silencerco.com/products/omega/" target= "_blank">Omega</a> .30-caliber suppressor spearheads SilencerCo’s new offerings, providing shooters with one of the shortest, lightest and quietest full auto centerfire rifle suppressors on the market. The Omega is constructed with a combination of titanium, tool-grade stainless steel and Stellite to keep the device lightweight and uses the Active Spring Retention (ASR) quick-detach (QD) mount. For 2015, SilencerCo also released shorter versions of its Octane 45 and Osprey 45 suppressors: the <a href= "http://www.silencerco.com/products/octane/" target= "_blank">Octane K 45</a> and <a href= "http://www.silencerco.com/products/osprey/" target= "_blank">Osprey K 45</a>.
