“I love it when a plan comes together.” – Hannibal Lecter. Wait, I think I messed that up. Even so, the partnership between B&T and HK for U.S. made silencers has finally left the planning stages and is now ready for rollout. For years, suppressor loving shooters around the world have enjoyed HK silencers designed and built by Swiss perfectionists. Everyone, that is, except for Americans.
Due to import restrictions, foreign manufactured silencers are only available to license holders as well as military and law enforcement customers. As of today, however, B&T can officially announce the U.S. manufacture of a variety of HK silencers available to the civilian market.
Dealer pricing as well as MSRP is still being hammered out. However if you are interested in one of the seven listed models, I’d start pestering your dealer now – I can almost guarantee a mad rush of sales. Details and press release are below.
The line forms behind me, people. I’ve got dibs on a 11.9″ MP5SD can.

HK USA IN PARTNERSHIP WITH B&T USA TO RELEASE FACTORY SUPPRESSORS FOR THE US MARKET.
Columbus, GA/Tampa, FL – HK USA together with B&T USA (formerly Brügger and Thomet) are proud to announce the release of the HK branded line of suppressors to the commercial market in the US. Finally, the same battle proven line of suppressors previously available exclusively to Law Enforcement and Military are available to purchase for your HK firearms in the USA.
In keeping with decades of OEM partnership between their respective European counterparts B&T and HK’s US-based subsidiaries have teamed up to deliver factory suppressors manufactured to the same exacting specifications and quality of suppressors designed and manufactured specifically for HK firearms to market. Initial release models will include suppressors for pistol caliber handguns, PDWs, and carbines with those for rifle calibers to follow.
Demanding users of HK branded suppressors have come to rely on their performance in terms of uncompromising durability, reliability, and sound suppression.
US consumers who have come to trust and rely on their battle-proven HK firearms can be equally as confident when choosing a suppressor designed specifically their firearm without hesitation. Additionally, customers can rest assured that suppressors bearing the HK logo are certified by HK USA and will not void their factory warranty.
The ultimate choice in suppressors will be manufactured and distributed by B&T USA to the exact specification as those provided by B&T to HK and subsequently to Military and LE around the world.
