    From the press release …

    The Silencerco Saker 5.56 represents years of Research and development, with tens of thousands of rounds expended. No effort and no expenses were spared in an effort to bring the finest centerfire rifle suppressor in the world out of R&D and into reality. The Saker series of rifle suppressors features 3 key innovations that make it stand alone in its field. The MAAD (Multiple Accessory Attachment Device) mount is an industry first, interchangeable centerfire rifle mounting platform that is used to attach a Saker, or other muzzle accessories, to the users choice of many popular flash hiders and other mounts. With the Saker the user is no longer trapped by a specific proprietary mounting system. The Saker allows the user to configure the mounting system to suit the task or taste of the individual. With several MAAD mounts for popular platforms available now and more planned, the Saker gives unparalleled mounting solution flexibility to its user.

    Durability and Accuracy are often a direct result of design effort, and the Saker has no peer in this arena. The Patent Pending Hoplon blast baffle is a radical departure from traditional cone blast baffle designs that uses “new to silencer design” materials, strategic reinforcements and improved geometry to achieve incomparable strength, longevity and repeatable accuracy.

    The biggest cause of rifle suppressor damage is end cap strikes. The Saker also Features the MAAD cap, the first ever user replaceable, rifle silencer front cap. The MAAD cap is threaded to the fully welded suppressor tube and does NOT hold any silencer parts inside, so there is no reduction in strength like non welded designs. Users can purchase a spare standard MAAD cap or any other MAAD cap accessories, like our available MAAD cap flash hider and replace them without the need to return the suppressor for repair. This also allows the user to customize the front of the Saker to meet the task at hand or taste of the user. Modularity is the key defining word of the Saker, from the back to the front.
