Comrade, the time has come. Dead Air Armament’s Wolverine PBS-1 AK suppressor is dropping in to distributors across the US. If you remember from our MOD Outfitter’s story a few months ago, the Wolverine is designed to tame both ejection port and gas port noise as much it supresses the muzzle blast. It also looks pretty awesome.
In addition, the mounting system takes into account for the likelihood that your AK has muzzle threads that aren’t concentric to the bore line. A common problem for combloc barrels that weren’t designed for anything more than a slant brake.
Wolverine PBS-1 Specifications:
|Length:||7.4″ (with thread adapter)|
|Weight:||19.8 oz – 24.4 oz depending on mount|
|Diameter:||1.5″ tube, 1.93″ outside diameter|
|Finish:||Cerakote body with nitrided parts|
|Min. Barrel Length:||No Restrictions|
MSRP is set at $1,099 but a quick search of the distributors I frequent shows that street prices are hovering at a hair over $900.
Dead Air (and MOD Outfitters) owners Gary Hughes and Mike Pappas have put a lot of thought into the Wolverine and it shows in the details. Mounting options are plentiful and the overall design matches the aesthetics of AK-patterned rifles with all lengths of barrels.
Speaking of mounts, here are the thread pitch options:
- 14×1 LH (included)
- 24 RH
- 26 LH
- 9/16×24 (LH and RH)

How The Mount Works:
Since I currently don’t own an AK (I’m working on fixing that), most of you thinking about picking up a Wolverine will have yours long before me. Let us know when you pull the trigger for the first time. Bonus points for Red Dawn themed action shots.
