[SHOT 2016 Range Day] Nothing But Silence from Witt Machine (Suppressed M1919!!!!)

    Last year Witt Machine brought a number of interesting new muzzle devices to SHOT Industry Day at the Range. This year, along with some devilish grins, they brought some new toys they have been working on.

    The eye-catching feature of their booth was a table mounted M1919 surrounded by belts of gleaming ammo. And this wasn’t even Industry Day at the Range proper—just The Firearm Blog’s exclusive pre-day. Did I mention that it was suppressed? Definitely the first time I had ever seen a unicorn like that… If you ever have the chance to shoot one, I highly recommend it. Until that day, please enjoy this teaser:

    So, is this what they are producing? Nope. This was just the flashing neon sign used to draw people in to see what they are really offering this year—integrally suppressed rifles. And if you already have a rifle, they are offering just the suppressor.

    Their 100% titanium suppressor utilizes their patented baffle system and is seeing a 37db+ SPL reduction. It is available for any caliber in any thread pattern, and you can have one with a custom serial number (available upon request). The user-serviceable suppress will come in two sizes: a 5.8 inch model weighing 11 ounces and a 9 inch model weighing 15.5 ounces.

    Witt Machine’s complete integrally suppressed rifle uses their same 100% titanium suppressor technology.

    This is the shortest suppressed .300 Blackout Hog killing machine that you can own with one tax stamp. Lightweight, Compact, and quick to maneuver in any situation from hunting to home defense.

    It will boast a mil spec upper receiver with forward assist, a nickel boron treated BGC charging handle, and hex hand guard. Barrel sleeves will be available in polished titanium, high temp graphite black, or FDE ceratoke.

Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.
