When I started getting into suppressors, I sold off all my AK rifles and gear to fund quieter hosts. That decision to purge anything and everything AK-based might have been a bit rash. Dead Air Armament just pushed out a sneak-peak of the Wolverine PBS-1; a silencer optimized for the AK Platform. Nathan S. covered the initial announcement a few weeks ago and now Dead Air is releasing a few more details.
The Wolverine PBS-1 will be a direct-thread suppressor and as it stands now, Dead Air plans on the following thread pitches: 14L, 14R, 24R, 26L, 15mm, 16mm, 1/2×28, 5/8×24, and 9/16L. Each of these will be available as swappable adapters so that the Wolverine can be used on multiple combloc rifles.
We are extremely pleased with the first Wolverine prototype. In fact, we could launch it as it is, it’s that awesome. But we want to push the boundaries even further for the AK and Combloc gun lovers, who always seem to be overlooked by silencer companies. With a few more modifications and tests, we’ll be satisfied for production. – Mike Pappas, Dead Air.
To date, the Wolverine PBS-1 has been tested on numerous MOD Outfitters AK variants, WASR-10 in 7.62×39, RPK in 7.62×39, Rasheed 7.62×39, and AK-47 in .308.
Rumors are floating around that the Wolverine will be also be available as a package deal with an AK variant. Maybe Dead Air will release more information in the coming months. Since I’ve sold all my AKs, I personally hope the Wolverine/rifle package becomes a reality.
