[SHOT ’17] ANNOUNCED: The Lunar-45 From Gemtech

In the middle of their busiest time of year, my friends at Gemtech were nice enough to forward me some images and specifications on their latest creation. Making its first appearance at SHOT, the Lunar-45 is a brand new modular silencer capable of transforming into two different lengths depending on the task of the day. Marked as a .45 caliber pistol suppressor, the Lunar-45 can of handle rimfire rounds all the way up to subsonic .300BLK.

Of course, Gemtech, a suppressor industry leader for four decades, is no stranger to innovation and aggressive product development. In the past year they have announced and delivered the Aurora, a micro-sized pistol silencer based on a US military escape and evasion package made for downed pilots. Also, Gemtech is releasing a suppressed AR upper receiver called the Integra – chambered in both 5.56 and .300BLK versions.

Point being, I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time at their SHOT Show booth next week. Stay tuned for more pictures and details in them coming days.

I don’t have an MSRP to report yet for the Lunar-45, but if I had to take a guess, the street price will be somewhere in the range of $700.

    So it’s a rebranded Obsidian-45 that Rugged Suppressors make? Coke vs Pepsi

      I have an Obsidian, it’s awesome. This, I doubt has equal performance.

      I would like to know why even bother making a “short” confit that is only 1.5″ shorter than “long” config. Ends up being neither.
