Sig Sauer’s New Silencer Site is Live

Sig-Sauer-Silencers

Sig Sauer announced earlier this year that they were working on their own line of silencers, well their new site is now live. They have models for rifles, pistols and rimfires ranging in price from $395 to $995.

Check out their new site at SigSauerSilencers.com.

In addition to technical innovations, SIG SAUER has rethought the utility of silencers. Primarily looked at as a military tool, silencers have exploded on the sport and recreational shooting scene over the past few years.

“As we started to rethink silencers, we also rethought how they are used,” Creamer said. “The result is a military-grade silencer that would be optimal for any unit or law enforcement agency to use, that also makes sense for the commercial market.

For example, the SRD45 silencer, designed for use on .45 Auto handguns, comes with two pistons, allowing it to be attached to either .578×28 TPI or M16x1LH threads, making it a versatile choice for use on multiple firearms. Nine millimeter and .40S&W pistons are available and greatly add to the versatility of the system. Likewise, the SRD22 rimfire silencer comes with two adapters: both ½x28 and M9.

SIG SAUER has also rethought how silencers attach to firearms, which is the key factor in accuracy. New tapered direct thread designs eliminate the need for a crush washer, allowing the silencers to be more securely torqued down, increases the surface area of contact, and is self-centering to the bore.
This design allows for a much more secure fit and significantly reduces the POI shift when using the silencer.

This taper design carries over to the new Taper-Lok™ QD mounting system. The innovative, modular three-piece design does not require timing to the barrel. Once attached, the Taper-Lok mount features interchangeable muzzle devices, so users can change from a muzzle brake to a flash hider, without the need to remove the mount from the barrel. Taper-Lok QD silencers feature a secondary retention latch, which has wrench flats machined in to facilitate proper torque and aid in removal when heavily fouled by carbon build-up.

SIG SAUER pistol silencers are constructed with 100% 17-4 stainless steel baffles, which offer the same weight as aluminum but far better wear resistance and durability. Designed to be hearing safe when used “dry,” SIG SAUER pistol silencers can also be used “wet” with an ablative material such as water. The rimfire silencer can be disassembled for easy cleaning, and the stainless baffles allow the silencer to be “dipped” into an ultrasonic cleaner, something not possible with aluminum baffle stacks.

Featuring a selection of stainless steel, titanium, direct mount or fast attach, select SIG SAUER silencers will hit the market in Q1 2015.

    Now if they ever ship them…….

    I sure love these articles that are riddled with irrelevant viglink links.

      re: … riddled with irrelevant viglink links.

      I run BitDefender and never see them. BD tells me that the api dot viglink dot com site, which TFB is emitting, is identified as infected with malware, and blocks it. I also run NoScript and routinely have Flash and Java disabled.

      In some cases it takes 6 nested “temporarily allow all on this page” ops in NoScript before pages on some sites fully load (which I rarely do, usually just from curiosity).

      Sites relying on add inserts that are 3d party content usually have no idea what they are actually serving out to the world. If a site 6 degrees away is malicious or gets hacked, guess who gets the blame.

      Ad-supported sites need to be routinely checking the totality of what they serve against blacklists. And they need to do this at frequent irregular intervals, from random IPs, because mal/hacked sites often don’t consistently emit the malware (in order to avoid getting caught). It appears that few sites do this. Sigh. Shields up.

      I don’t mind the ads, really, but the hazards of not blocking them are too great to ignore, and are likely to remain so for some time to come.

      You can opt out them. I’d post a link, but my post will get delayed, so you should google it.

    • spotr

      Agree. It makes the whole TFB site appear to be “infected” worse than a parn site from Hackestan.

  • Paul White

    I’m amazed manufacturers aren’t pushing hard to get silencers off the NFA and more available. It’d be a huge damn market–my own first purchase would be a .45 ACP with a threaded barrel then a silencer

      They’re addictive, my fourth one is on the way.
      It’s really nice to shoot without hearing protection AND be able to hear the loud ring of the steel.

    You mean like ThunderBeast?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      TB is a three over brake, SIGs is not. They are actually very little alike except they both center on a taper.

      Fwiw, using the new SIG system I wasn’t crazy impressed, but they were early/demo models. I like the SF better but maybe sig will work them out a bit.

  • vereceleritas

    Unlike most of their firearms, these are actually competitively priced.

  • valorius

    Did ATF ever drop the CLEO sign off box on its class III forms like what was widely rumored a few years ago?

    • cbunix23

      No, ATF still requires CLEO sign off. A few states have recently passed “shall sign” legislation, so that helps.

      • valorius

        OK, thanks.

  • Steve_7

    What’s a “silencer”? Don’t they mean a sound suppressor?

    • BuzzKillington

      BTD. NFA classification is “silencer.”

      • Steve_7

        So you go around calling your grenade launcher a “destructive device” do you? Plenty of laws say “assault weapon” and we all know that’s bullshit.

        • BuzzKillington

          No, Steve. The point was that this argument has been beat to death on forums over and over. I say suppressor, they say silencer. Doesn’t make it incorrect just because the literal definition of “silence” doesn’t match up with the device’s actual function. It’s still a legitimate descriptive term, despite those of us who understand the literal disparity and actual function.
