New Suppressors You Want to "Hear" About in 2015

New Suppressors You Want to "Hear" About in 2015

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.

SIG Sauer Suppressors

SIG Sauer introduced a host of new rimfire and centerfire suppressors for 2015 in calibers ranging from .17 HMR to .338 Lapua Mag. SIG Sauer didn't just release a lineup of new suppressors though, it also introduced several technical innovations to suppressor design. The company incorporated tubeless rifle suppressors to maximize volume and reduce weight and developed a fast-attach mounting system that uses a modular three-piece design that doesn't require timing to the barrel to minimize point-of-impact shift. SIG also introduced new tapered direct threads that eliminate the need for a crush washer, resulting in a more secure fit. All of the new suppressors use 100-percent 17-4 stainless steel baffles and are designed to be hearing safe.

Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC) Suppressors

Advanced Armament Corporation (AAC) has four new suppressors for 2015, all made for rifles. In 5.56 NATO, AAC has brought out the SR-5 and 556-SD, both fast-attach suppressors using 100-percent Inconel 718 baffles. The SR-5 uses a variation of AAC's 90 Tooth Ratchet Taper fast-attach system that requires little effort to mount and minimizes point-of-impact shifts. The 556-SD is based off the previous AAC M4-2000 design and uses the 51T Ratchet Mount fast-attach system. In 7.62 NATO, the company has introduced the SR-7 (shown here) and the 762-SD. As with the SR-5, the SR-7 uses the 90 Tooth Ratchet Taper fast-attach system, while the 762-SD uses the same 51T Ratchet system as the 556-SD. Both 7.62 suppressors also offer reliable performance with 300 AAC Blackout, 6.8 SPC and 5.56 NATO.

Dead Air Armament Suppressors

Based in Lawrenceville, Ga., Dead Air Armament is a relatively new face in the suppressor industry, though its founders have been developing suppressors for some time. For 2015, Dead Air is offering three models in its 7.62 NATO Sandman suppressor lineup, and its new Mask-22 .22-caliber suppressor, which was introduced at the SHOT Show. The 7.62 Sandman suppressors are available in short (Sandman-S) and long (Sandman-L) versions, as well as a lightweight titanium (Sandman-Ti) variant. The short and long versions of the Sandman both utilize precipitation hardened, nitride-finished stainless steel tubes and incorporate a quick-detach (QD) system for simple mounting with zero seizing and minimal point of impact shifts, while the titanium variant uses precision rifle direct threads. The company's new Mask-22 is manufactured from a blend of titanium and 17-4 PH stainless steel and features an easy-to-disassemble design.

Gemtech The One Suppressor

Gemtech has a couple new suppressors for 2015, but "one" of our favorites is Gemtech's The One suppressor. Designed to be the go-to suppressor for any situation or application, The One is compatible with an incredibly wide array of calibers ranging from .17 HMR to .300 Win. Mag. Even some of the more obscure cartridges such as the .220 Swift and .280 Remington and others are included in The One's list of supported calibers. Manufactured from Titanium and Inconel, The One has a slight overall weight of 16.3 ounces but remains a durable design that performs to SOCOM standards. It uses an interchangeable quick mount and thread mount and is 7.5 inches in length.

SilencerCo Omega Suppressor

Utah-based SilencerCo made some waves in the summer of 2014 with its Salvo 12 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 Omega .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 Octane K 45 and Osprey K 45.

SureFire Ryder 9mm Suppressor

SureFire's Ryder 22-A won G&A's 2014 Suppressor of the Year Award for it's innovative design. Building on the success of the rimfire model, SureFire has added to the Ryder series in 2015 with its new Ryder 9mm suppressor. As with the previous Ryder, this one also features an easy-to-disassemble design for user maintenance. The 9mm suppressor is almost identical to the Ryder 22-A in appearance with the exception of being larger to accommodate the bigger 9mm round.
