Surefire’s new Ryder 9 suppressor (VIDEO)

    I was invited to the Surefire Institute to get a hands on experience shooting Surefire’s very first 9mm pistol suppressor. It’s an impressive piece of gear, and pretty darn quiet. I first saw it at SHOT Show earlier this year but didn’t get a chance to shoot it. Now, I get to rectify that problem.

    Built out of titanium, it’s lightweight yet also really strong. Here are the Ryder 9 stats:

    Caliber 9 mm
    Length 7.6 inches
    Weight 9.5 ounces
    Diameter 1.25 inches

    And finally, here’s the Ryder 9 in action:

    MSRP: $799.00
