The Advanced Armament Corporation (a sub-division of Remington) has launched a new firearm brand called ‘The Farm‘. The Farm line will include AR-15 and Remington 700 / Model 7 hunting rifles chambered in .300 AAC BLK and designed with suppressor use in mind. These guns will be suitable for mid sized game. The .300 BLK is subtitle for use on any game currently hunted with a .30-30.
The market for suppressors in the United States consists of military, law enforcement, competition shooters and gun enthusiasts. A market segment notably missing is the hunting market. In my opinion, this is because of the cultural and historical contempt for suppressor use that pervades the hunting community. Suppressors are perceived as sinister devices use by hollywood-style assassins and poachers. In some other countries, for example the UK, suppressor use is common and unregulated. As more domestic consumers realize that suppressors are not to be feared, sales will surely rise.Related
