Liberty Suppressors announced a new sound suppressor called the Goliath. The Goliath is a .45 caliber suppressor designed for use with the .458 SOCOM round. According to the company, this is the largest .45 caliber suppressor the company makes.
The Goliath is 10″ long and has a 2″ diameter. The end cap, core and tube are all made of titanium and the total weight comes in at 20 ounces. The thread inserts are made of stainless steel. This is a direct mount suppressor with 5/8-24 and 5/8-32 thread inserts included.
Liberty Suppressors claims the sound dampening of the Goliath is “virtually unmatched” with an average sound reduction of more than 31 dB.
Based on a chart shown on the company’s website, the first shot of SBR 450 gr subsonic ammo measured 137.3 dB. The following four shots measured 130.5 – 131.5 dB. The test gun was an 11″ AR-15 rifle. Unsuppressed, the same ammunition measured 163.1 dB.
The suggested retail price for the Goliath is $999. That does not include your federal tax stamp.
