SilencerCo announces “Salvo 12” shotgun suppressor

    Short live blog style notes:

    “Catalina Wine Mixer” is a fun Step Brother’s movie reference.

    “1st Annual” event- so maybe more to come.

    CEO Josh takes the stage, goal of SilencerCo is to make innovative products. Went from zero to the market leader in a short six years. They sell more suppressors than their competition.

    They want to innovate and make new products. No commercial silencer company has ever been able to pull this off, until now.

    It can shoot slugs and wadded shot, and comes in varying lengths for multiple types of shotguns. It installs via a choke system for your particular shotgun make and model.

    Noise level is around an unsuppressed 10/22 shooting .22LR.

    MSRP: $1400

    I’ll be getting some hands on time with the guns later as well as a press kit with more pictures and details, so I’ll post more soon.
