Blackhawk! Suppressor Line | SHOT 2017

Blackhawk! is coming out with a suppressor line. Crazy world right? The company has tooled up, worked with sub-contractors and gotten together with Silencerco for some of the adaptors provided to bring a value suppressor line to the market. The MSRP prices listed are extremely competitive with suppressor markets currently going full bore, so this should be interesting. The companies viewpoint is that the line up is really for the average customer who just needs a suppressor, or is getting interested in the product. Of course, the company is riding on the success of the Hearing Protection Act, should it be passed in Congress.

Pulse- This is a .22 LR  (full auto rated), .17 HMR, .22 MAG, .22 WMR, .22 Hornet caliber covering suppressor, currently at $389.95 MSRP. Black Hawk! also makes muzzle adaptors for the Walther P22, M&P 22, SIG Mosquito, and GSG 1911 for the Pulse as well.

Smoke Stack- This goes up to .45 ACP, and can also be used for subsonic .300 BLK. MSRP is $849.95.

Mini Boss- Up to 9x19mm, is rated for subsonic and supersonic .300 BLK. MSRP is $799.95.

Barrage- Specifically for 5.56x45mm and below. MSRP is $699.95.

Gas Can- Up to 5.56x45mm, 7.62x51mm, and .300 Win Mag. MSRP is $1049.95.

Carnivore- Up to .300 Win Mag. MSRP is $679.95.

Wrath- Up to .338 Lapua Magnum. MSRP is $1399.95.

    Wow exciting news, I hope we’ll be able to buy the entire line next year for blow out inventory dumping prices!!

    But that giant white logo…

  • Sasquatch

    Hmmm price needs to drop though. You can’t tell me that it cost that much to make.

    • micmac80

      Most suppresors in Europe cost under 300$ and taxes and employe costs are higher than in US

      • Sasquatch

        I know. Its should be 300 max for the fancy ones.

      • iksnilol

        Not really.

    • iksnilol

      Well, sure, they could sell them cheaper if they didn’t want to make money or anything. For being *the* capitalist country a troubling amount of y’all have a bad grasp on economy.

      • Marc

        That’s what I’ve been saying for years about AR-15’s. If people would stop buying them like mad (demand) for a while, the price would drop substantially; since the market is completed flooded with them (supply). Same with whiskey here in the States; just stop buying it for a bit.

        • iksnilol

          Yeah, but companies aren’t charities. Feeding demand with no profit is stupid.

          • Marc

            I’m talking about us; the demand side, while you’re talking about the supply side. I expect companies to make a profit. Hell, I’d sell the mud off my boots for hundreds of dollars an ounce if I could. But if we notch back our spending then prices will fall.

          • iksnilol

            yeah, but again, there’s a limit to how much you can drop the price. Would you bother making suppressors if you only earned 5 or 10 bucks a unit?

        • Paul White

          stop buying whiskey? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO LIVE ON?!

          • Marc

            Your bunker you have been stockpiling. You do have a whiskey bunker, don’t you?

    • USMC03Vet

      Niche market right now. That is what happens when government restrictions treat all possible consumers as criminals and do just about everything possible to make it as much of a hassle and inconvient as possible to obtain. Once metal cylinders are treated like any other benign firearm accessory the price will swiftly drop due to vastly more sales.

      • Sasquatch

        I know it would be a great big middle finger. To all those who think it is or should be illegal to own a suppressor, and to those who classify those who buy them criminals. Also to the but hurt liberals.

  • valorius

    These would look cool with hexmags.

  • AZgunner

    $800 suppressors are entry level now? That’s on par with most stuff from trusted companies like Gemtech, AAC, and Griffin Armaments. Why would I spend the same money gambling on Blackhawk? Also, I’m not a fan of the hex pattern on them.

  • Blaine

    If nothing else, all of these cans are very lightweight. 12 oz. for a 5.56 can is pretty dang good.

  • James Young

    Why are supressors more expensive than guns even when not including the $200 tax stamp?
