BLACKHAWK! Suppressors!

image

BLACKHAWK!, makers of holsters, ballistic nylon bags/cases and entry tools has quietly announced a new line of sound suppressors to their product line. The details are scant at the moment, but from the looks of it, BLACKHAWK! will be offering a full line of silencers that will cover anything from .22lr to handguns to magnum centerfire rifle cartridges.

Although the styling an aesthetics are unique, the mounting systems, end caps and other specifications have a striking resemblance to SilencerCo’s offerings. For example, the locking ring attached to the rifle mount pictured seems to match up with the ASR mount from SiCo.

I am unaware of any of the current silencers on the market being licensed, rebranded, marketed and sold by a different company all together. Although I am having flashbacks to the Tracking Point/Dead Air Armament story we released as breaking news a few weeks ago.

As I have said before, the more silencer companies (and silencers) on the market the better. Increased ownership will lead to demystifying suppressed weapons and hopefully someday leading to deregulation. So, for that matter, I don’t care where their cans are made – I say go BLACKHAWK!.

As a global leader in tactical product innovation, BLACKHAWK! is excited to announce our entry into the world of sound suppressors. Built around proven designs, and coupled with patent pending BLACKHAWK! components.

With seven models available ranging from .22 Rimfire up to 338 Lapua Magnum, there is a BLACKHAWK! suppressor built for your shooting platform. Constructed from superior materials which deliver superior noise reduction, our suppressors stand out from the competition.

Check with your local firearms dealer for more information on the new debut and when delivery begins.

AVAILABLE IN LATE SUMMER 2016

    Hmmmm, I wonder what “superior materials” they will be using….
    Why even mention what they will be constructed with if you aren’t going to be specific? The firearm owning crowd tends to be pretty technical and critical of components used to build equipment, and that goes double for the kind willing to mess with class 3 stuff.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Look at them… 100% of their “innovation” is on the outside.

      They are more or less knockoffs of the SiCo line. And when someone says they have a new line of silencers but lists no weights… No.

      • iksnilol

        Or length, don’t forget length.

      • Bill

        For a company that started off as a real innovator in the field, BLACKHAWK! has become the knock-off Walmart of “tactical” junk. Pity.

  • They were showing these off at NRA. I’ll post photos and some more details later this week.

    • iksnilol

      Do you also have specs? How much do they extend past the muzzle?

  • Edeco

    I wonder what the BAFFLES! look like!

    • Gorilla Biscuit

      Like this!

      • Pete M

        Omega.

      • Squirreltakular

        Is it just me, or are all of those names also Oakley sunglasses models?

        • Dave D

          Boy, I just really don’t like the “Gas Can” name.

      • Edeco

        OK! Thanks!

      • AD

        Hmm, that first baffle has a really sharp shoulder that seems to be almost completely blocking off the second expansion chamber; I feel like that’s a slightly careless bit of design there.

  • TV

    I don’t understand how the market supports all of these suppressors. There are so many companies out there now with approximately equivalent products.

    • Bill

      Me neither. For all the noise (see what I did there?) about suppressors, they really are a niche product. The market has to be nearing saturation. If and when suppressors become unregulated, if not before, they will be massive bloodletting when the herd is culled.

    • Dave D

      Simply supply and demand. The demand for cans as grown leaps and bounds. Companies like Blackhawk, Ruger and Remington are chasing the buck. While others like Dead Air and Rugged are former employees of established companies. But remember that the silencer companies are pretty small in comparison to the industry and a company like Silencerco has only been around since 2008, yet is considered one of the sales leaders.

  • Gorilla Biscuit

    How about barrel length restrictions???

  • blehtastic

    Gross. Like I’m gonna wait 9 months and blow a tax stamp for crap. The only reason ATI and Blackhawk exist is because there’s a constant stream of new gun owners that haven’t made that mistake yet.

    • Pete M

      Let’s withold judgement until we see them in action. By default the have to be US made.

    • Dave D

      Got to disagree on Blackhawk stuff, at least their pouches. Their pouches work great and tend to hold up as well or better than other more expensive brands. Of course its easy to talk bad of the Serpa holster, but their other stuff is decent.

  • Budogunner

    Clearly they can’t make quiet suppressors if they can’t disable caps lock for their logo. #burn

    • Kimjungill

      They’re going back to lower case.
      With silencers they won’t need to yell anymore.

  • A Fascist Corgi

    I’m still waiting for companies to come out with suppressors that cost under $200. It’s a threaded metal tube with baffles. I can’t think of a product that’s easier to manufacture.

    • markrb

      It’s called an $8 FRAM oil filter. And it works great. As a solvent catcher, of course.

      • Navy Davy

        Cheapster! cheap is good unless you have barrels of money.
        Replaceable.
        Legality only requires you to place the old serial onto the new filter can.

        • markrb

          Actually, I believe if you were going to use the oil filter as a suppressor, you can register the adapter. There’s a company that’s set up for that and they charge like $40 for the thread adapter. It’s got numbers on it and you register it with your $200.

  • Talos

    Here’s what is like to see from a new entrant in the suppressor market: inexpensive. Why does a tube filed with baffles, simple rally, need to cost so much? Figure no less than $800 for a suppressor right now (including the $200 tax stamp) at a minimum. Why does such a simple device need to cost $600 and up? (Before the tax) How about taking the market away from the others by selling them at half that price?

  • politicsbyothermeans

    Does this mean you’ll be able to buy cans in a blister pack at the PX?
