Paul Kim of PK Designlab is working on a suppressor design. You may recognize the name. He was Senior VP of Engineering at SureFire. A couple years back he separated from SureFire to start up his own company, PK Designlab, He is most well known for his work on flashlights although he has worked on non flashlight projects with companies like Lionheart who made the LH9.


Engieering due diligence is one of our core missions. My previous Gen 1 suppressor was never analyzed to this level of scrutiny. This time we are doing it right.

Here is a sneak preview of the finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics analysis of our Gen 2 VORTEX suppressor design.

Can’s reveal too much but expect a new revolution in suppressor design.

    I remember doing FEA and simulations in school. Oh, those were the days. These images bring back memories…

    The quoted portion makes better sense when read with a Chinese accent

    There can never be too many can makers.

      Right- all selling cans for $700

      If you walk up to suppressor designer Denise Jennings at SHOT Show 2018 and tell her ‘nice cans’, would it be worth the slap to the face?

      • Brett baker

        Don’t know.

      • Sgt G

        Yes, totally worth it

        Yes, but make sure you video it so we can all comment 🙂

    How do you write an article about this and not even discuss the unique porting on the design? You people have become a news ticker and it’s embarrassing.
