goliath-front-768x614

Liberty Suppressors announced a new sound suppressor called the Goliath. The Goliath is a .45 caliber suppressor designed for use with the .458 SOCOM round. According to the company, this is the largest .45 caliber suppressor the company makes.

The Goliath is 10″ long and has a 2″ diameter. The end cap, core and tube are all made of titanium and the total weight comes in at 20 ounces. The thread inserts are made of stainless steel. This is a direct mount suppressor with 5/8-24 and 5/8-32 thread inserts included.

Liberty Suppressors claims the sound dampening of the Goliath is “virtually unmatched” with an average sound reduction of more than 31 dB.

Based on a chart shown on the company’s website, the first shot of SBR 450 gr subsonic ammo measured 137.3 dB. The following four shots measured 130.5 – 131.5 dB. The test gun was an 11″ AR-15 rifle. Unsuppressed, the same ammunition measured 163.1 dB.

The suggested retail price for the Goliath is $999. That does not include your federal tax stamp.

Liberty Suppressors is a Georgia based company that makes a range of sound suppressors for rifles and handguns. Other suppressors the company has released in the recent past are the A-Kaotic (a .30 caliber can for the 7.62×39 and 300 BLK) and the Chaotic Ti (another .30 caliber can that is rated to 300 Win Mag.)

    Considering you can launch 500 and 600gr pills with 458 SOCOM….. OH BABY…

    Liberty Suppressors: Come do our beta testing for us!

    I don’t know, maybe I’m being too hard on them, but I’ve never seen them make the same can twice. Their entire line is constantly “evolving” which makes me wary as a customer. Good for some people I guess, but what some might see as “ahead of the curve!” I see as small time shop I can’t trust to support a product long term.

    Not an issue if HPA goes through, but I’m certainly not holding my breathe.

      Pretty Much. Little reason to take this over a more adaptable SiCo Hybrid, unless those decibel numbers are true.

    Jiminy Christmas, a baffle strike from a .458 would be like a claymore going off…
