Today at Media Day I got a sneak preview of Sig Sauer’s new rifle suppressor line. I tested one on a Sig516 in 5.56, and it was quiet! This one is non-detachable.

More technical details to come later this week.

    Non-detachable? That sounds good, I don’t see why small integral suppressors aren’t included in all military issue rifles – think of all that wasted volume in the handguard that could be put to good use! Apart from cutting down on noise, you also benefit from reduced recoil and flash.

    Does it come apart for cleaning?

    If it is non-detachable why didn’t they build it into the hand guard portion of the barrel instead of hanging off the end of it?

    As a dealer, there’s no way I’m going to be getting any sales off of a non-detachable 5.56 suppressor. 95% of people who buy a rifle can want it QD, and only a handful are willing to go thread mount. It would be the rarest of customers who would be willing to put a rifle and suppressor combo into 6 month limbo for the sake of…what? The Sig name on the side of the can? Everyone else is just going to buy an AAC, Gemtech, Silencerco, Thunderbeast, SWR, etc…

    To be accurate, it is a thread-on (torqued on actually) silencer.
