Nexgen2 Defense Blowback Eliminating Silencer

    Swim in the silencer pool long enough and you will eventually end up in the deep in with the AR15 shooters discussing gas regulation. There are hardliners on both sides of the debate – one team believes that a properly gassed rifle is the key to a pleasurable shooting experience. The other team believes that overpassed/undergassed situations are to be blamed on the host weapon itself, advocating buffer and spring weight modifications. Either way you look at it, the silencer plays a roll in how much gas is redirected down the barrel and gas tube toward the port and on towards the shooter (aka ‘blowback’). Nexgen2 defense is releasing the Maxflo 3D AFD silencer that is said to eliminate blowback with a specialized baffle system.

    I am solidly on team ‘adjustable gas block’ to mitigate blowback and cycling issues. My thoughts focus on the fact that most rifle silencers will change the way the host AR15 operates – Either over-gassed because of the restrictions placed on the muzzle, or under gassed when running unsuppressed. Obviously, not all suppressors are created equal – baffle designs and internal volume can effect the way gas is directed in the rifle as a system.

    Details and specifications are still pending, but at an MSRP of $1495 has me a bit concerned. Also, the tag lines of ‘Increased Safety’, ‘Increased Accuracy’, ‘Zero Back Pressure’, and ‘Zero Flash/No Pop’ points to some bold claims. Mostly because I don’t believe in absolutes.

    In the end, independent testing on a variety of host platforms will be required to either prove or disprove the claims by Nexgen2. Other manufactures have made dramatic claims, only to find out that specialized hosts were used to achieve desirable results.

    Nexgen2 Defense Maxflo 3D Silencer:

    NEXGEN2 Defense (NG2) has brought new suppression technology to the market with their MAXFLO 3D™. Utilizing “Advanced Flow Dynamics™ (AFD)” Zero Back-Pressure Suppression™ technology. The MAXFLO 3D rewrites the rules in firearms suppression. Rather than start with existing designs, NG2 erased the template and started from scratch. The result changes the game in firearms suppression. The MAXFLO 3D™ virtually eliminates all of the major issues common with firearms suppressors, back-pressure, first round “pop” and flash, accuracy robbing turbulence, recoil, excessive heat buildup, and more. All while maintaining hearing-safe levels of sound suppression across a wide variety of weapons systems and calibers. Quiet, soft-shooting, light-weight, strong, and user-serviceable, the MAXFLO 3D™ has it all.


    A TRUE ZERO BACK-PRESSURE SUPPRESSION™ USING ADVANCED FLOW DYNAMICS™
    DRAPER, UT – NEXGEN2 Defense (NG2) has brought new suppression technology to the market with their MAXFLO 3D™. Utilizing the company’s “Advanced Flo Dynamics™ (AFD)” Zero Back-Pressure Suppression™ technology. The MAXFLO 3D™ rewrites the rules in firearms suppression. Rather than start with existing designs, NG2 erased the template and started from scratch. The result changes the game in firearms suppression. The MAXFLO 3D™ virtually eliminates all of the major issues common with firearms suppressors, back-pressure, first round “pop” and flash, accuracy robbing turbulence, recoil, excessive heat buildup, and more. All while maintaining hearing-safe levels of sound suppression across a wide variety of weapons systems and calibers. Quiet, soft-shooting, light-weight, strong, and user-serviceable, the MAXFLO 3D™ has it all.

    The MAXFLO 3D’s™ AFD™ suppression technology brings firearms suppressors into the next generation. Removing back pressure allows semi-automatic rifles to operate properly with no increased bolt speed, timing interruptions or increased recoil. Bolt rifles experience no increased bolt lift with consistent recoil reduction including the first round. Reducing excess gaskeeps actions clean and free of excess carbon and debris. Cleaner magazines and ammunition ensures proper functioning. Shooters no longer endure excess gas in their face, keeping them on target without distraction or long term health issues. Sound reduction meets or exceeds any current design. The MAXFLO 3D’s™ AFD™ technology reduces heat build-up, reducing thermal signature, eliminating impact shifts during high rates of fire and increasing service life. The AFD™ design also allows it to be used on any barrel length and cartridge combination within caliber and its full-auto rated. The MAXFLO 3D™ is user serviceable without special tools, has a lifetime warranty and 100,000 round service life guarantee.

    Engineered utilizing the most cutting edge fluid dynamics software available, with input from users in every field, the MAXFLO 3D™ excels for all suppressed applications and uses. The MAXFLO3D™ can be used on any .30 caliber or smaller weapons platform, with only a thread adapter required. Constructed using high strength stainless steel and alloys, with a high-temp Cerakote, ceramic finish. Manufactured 100% in our Draper, Utah facility on the most sophisticated CNC equipment available. The MAXFLO 3D™ is the most advanced suppressor system available today. NG2‘s innovative dealer and sales support program, makes it as easy to sell as it is to use.
