NRA 2014 Day 1: Silencer Co Suppressors Shooting

First up at the 1st Annual American Silencer Association’s shoot was Silencer Co. SilencerCo representative Mike Aland was kind to give me a run-down of their latest offerings released at SHOTShow 2014 and on display today.

Hit the video for shooting footage of a full-auto MP5, the Osprey, and Octane.

The most interesting of the releases is the Harvester, a lightweight .300 and big-bore .338 offering for precision weapons. Not just content with baffles, the Harvester includes SilencerCo’s “fixed anchor brake” to take advantage of the few remaining escaping gasses. Mike claimed that the Harvester could take a .300 WinMag and make it feel like a .243.

The above post is my opinion and does not reflect the views of any company or organization.

    21-34 db? Is that with regular and subsonic ammo, respectively?

  • Rusty Shakleford

    Would increasing the diameter to a full 2.00″ and length to 12″ on the .338 Harvester yield more than marginal decrease in db?

  • claymore

    Are they using industry standard measuring distance from the muzzle?

    • Cymond

      SilencerCo is pretty good about using standardized metering methods & equipment. You can check out some of their product tests/demos/comparisons on their youtube channel.

        That is one thing you must check as some companies “fudge around” with the testing methods to get a better result they can post.
