Dead Air Armament Launches 7.62 Sandman Suppressor Line

    Mike Pappas, formerly of SilencerCo, is coming to market via Dead Air Armaments with a three new suppressors; the 7.62 Sandman line.

    From the press release:

    The 7.62 Sandman-S® delivers performance in a small package. The “S” stands for short, measuring in at 6.8″ in length with a weight of 17.3 oz., making it the perfect cross-over can for 5.56mm, 300BLK and 7.62 platforms. The QD system features easy one hand removal in mere seconds without the wobble or seizing that can often times affect performance. Easy-on-easy-off with minimal point of impact shift or loss of precision. As an innovative 7.62 design first, the front cap is detachable and features an integrated flash hider. This affords better performance, particularly in low light conditions. The detachable front cap also provides some level of insurance when that “accident at the range” happens and the can gets dropped or abused. The front cap can be replaced trouble free without the need of sending it back for time consuming repairs.

    The 7.62 Sandman-L® is designed for those demanding absolute performance in a suppressor. The “L,” or long version, is made and constructed from the same materials used in the “S” version and measures in at 8.9″. It offers true sound reduction of 31dB firing standard 7.62 ammunition. Just like the “S,” the long version uses Dead Air’s industry best QD system for fool-proof quick one handed mounting. The mount features Nitride® finished 17-4 stainless steel construction for the ultimate in durability. The Sandman-L® features a detachable front cap with an integrated flash hider. The whole suppressor gets a Cerakote finish for ultimate corrosion protection. The Sandman-L® is ideal for a tactical bolt rifle or a .308 AR.

    For those demanding the ultimate silence from a precision rifle suppressor, the Sandman Ti® suppressor is it. It features a titanium tube with precision rifle direct threads and detachable front cap specifically designed for the challenging environments faced by law enforcement professionals. The exterior is finished in Cerakote for ultimate durability.

    I am hoping to buy a suppressor soon (after completing the setup of a trust), so I am definitely keeping an eye on this company!
