SureFire, the company so well-known for their quality lights and lasers, actually got its start as Laser Products. Laser Products can trace its roots back to 1969 when engineer and future founder Dr. John Matthews first began working towards designing a laser for industrial use. It wasn’t until 1984 that the LAPD’s SWAT team would put the company on the map by requesting and using shotguns with laser sights supplied by the company to provide security for the 19984 Olympic Games – and the rest is, as they say, history. Today SureFire’s reputation is deserved and their product line has substantially grown since the 1980s.
New for 2015 is an addition to SureFire’s SF Ryder line, the SF Ryder 9-Ti. The new suppressor is incredibly light yet strong and includes one of the company’s most innovative baffle designs. Read on for complete details.
The new SF Ryder 9-Ti—”Ti” standing for titanium—features an ultra-light titanium tube, front plate, and rear plate that help minimize the suppressor’s overall weight without any sacrifice in strength.
The 9mm SF Ryder 9 Ti—like the .22 suppressor upon which it is based—features pig-nose baffles that provide superior sound attenuation and reduced muzzle blast by precisely directing gasses from fired rounds. This ingenious baffle design—in this case built from durable, heat-treated stainless steel—also makes cleaning the suppressor a simple process. Built-in spacers help reduce carbon buildup between the baffles and the suppressor tube, and every baffle is indexed and individually numbered for foolproof disassembly and reassembly—made even easier by an included assembly/disassembly tool.
Along with use of high-grade titanium in its construction, the 9.5-ounce Ryder 9Ti reduces weight through a clever outer tube design that features rounded edges and fluting, which also makes it easier to get an accurate sight picture with the suppressor attached. The thread-on suppressor securely attaches via single-point cut threads available in either 1Ž2×28 or M13.5×1 thread sizes. Attaching the suppressor is simply a matter of screwing it on to a compatibly threaded 9mm barrel until hand tight.
Built to exacting standards and unrelenting quality like SureFire’s battle-proven Fast-Attach® SOCOM suppressors, the Ryder 9Ti is designed for recreational shooting and tactical applications. Its titanium and stainless steel construction, precision threading, and a tough, attractive Cerakote™ finish available in three colors—black, dark earth, and wolf gray—make it ideal for most any application. MSRP is $799, and the suppressor is available for purchase through authorized SureFire suppressor dealers.
