Last week we discussed integral silencers and their potential resurgence as NFA ownership continues to climb and personal suppressor collections diversify. Similar arguments can be made for shorter and lighter silencers as well. Beginning buyers often often search for maximum sound suppression above all else. Later, after enough range or field time, many shooters are ready to sacrifice a few decibels in exchange for a weight and length reduction. Enter the Rugged Suppressors Micro30.
The next level of versatility is modular suppressors. The Micro30 is designed around a removable front section that can be unscrewed in less than a minute to give the shooter a five inch setup rather than the full six and a half inches for maximum reduction. Weighing in at less than 12 ounces, the short-form Micro30 has the potential to virtually disappear on longer barrels.
I have yet to venture into the world of owning a modular silencer. But for a host weapon like a short barreled PTR91 that is heavy, a Micro30 may be the answer. Details, specifications and links are below.

BELT FED RATED™
Constructed entirely of 17-4PH Stainless Steel and featuring a full Stellite™ baffle stack, the Micro is built for anything you can throw at it.
LENGTH & WEIGHT
At 5″ long and weighing in at 11.8oz, the Mico is the shortest and lightest in it’s class.
ADAPT™ MODULAR TECHNOLOGY
ADAPT™ Modular Technology allows the Micro to be configured in a standard 6.5″ or short 5″ configuration within seconds.
DUAL TAPER LOCK™ MOUNTING SYSTEM
Patented quick detach mounting system ensures a rock solid lockup between the suppressor and muzzle device. We strategically place the engraving on the thickest cross section of the 17-4 stainless steel mount for fast and easy replacement should the suppressor become damaged beyond repair it also serves to make the Micro infinitely upgradable in the future.
OPTIONAL 5.56 FRONT CAPS
The Micro30 is a perfect choice for both 7.62 or 5.56 caliber rifles and with the addition of 5.56 front caps, sound suppression levels are improved up to an additional 2 dB.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
The Micro comes standard with the suppressor, ADAPT Module, 7.62 R3 Flash Hider (5/8×24 Thread Pitch), 7.62 Front Cap, Tool, Operator’s Manual, and Micro30 Logo Sticker.
