CGS Kraken Now At Zev Technologies

    CGS Suppressors and Zev Technologies have joined forces to bring the “lightest, quietest and most versatile” 9mm silencer on the market – a bold statement. The Kraken, constructed of stainless steel and aluminum, is reported as being metered at 114 dB using milspec testing standards. For those not familiar with decibel metering, suppressed subsonic rimfire rifle shooters would be happy with a 114 reading. Bottom line – it’s a really quiet reading for a suppressed 9mm.

    I’ve been following CGS for some time and I know they have been working hard to bring a quality product to market. So I’m looking forward to some independent testing. But with an MSRP of $900, the Kraken will be one of the most expensive pistol silencers available.  Is it worth it? If the numbers hold true, it just might be.


    ZEV Technologies and CGS Suppressors LLC teamed up to design and produce the lightest, quietest, and most versatile 9mm handgun suppressor currently available. The ZEV/CGS Kraken has a shielded baffle stack comprised of 7075 T6 Aluminum that has been Type III Hard Anodized to Military Specifications.
