If not for the National Firearms Act, suppressor design and technology would be pushed out towards the extremes – most consumers aren’t willing to bet hundreds of dollars, a hefty tax and nearly a year’s wait on cutting edge gear that may not be viable. Because of these laws and regulations, the U.S. silencer community as a whole is forced to play it safe. Carbon fiber suppressors currently sit on the outer edge of suppressor designs and materials. But Small Arms Technologies has a full array of woven silencers hitting the market.
For me to invest in a carbon fiber suppressor, it would have to offer a significant advantage over its metal counterparts: weigh less, cost less, be more durable or easier to clean would be a good start. At the moment, the jury is still out to whether or not Small Arms Technologies has addressed those categories. However, they have apparently worked some magic with heat management. The below video of the 9mm pistol being cool to the touch after about 50 rounds is very intriguing.
I love silencer innovation. Let’s hope we see more from these guys.
Carbon Fiber Quiet – Small Arms Technologies
The CF-9 is made for 9mm caliber pistols. With the use of the fixed barrel spacer it can be used with any fixed barrel 9mm firearms. Small Arms Technologies new 9-CF utilizes our patented COOL-CORE technology. The COOL-CORE design uses air flow to keep the suppressor cool to the touch while firing. The 9-CF is constructed out of Carbon Fiber, 7075 aircraft grade aluminum and 4140 Alloy Steel. The high end light weight materials make this one of the lightest suppressors on the market.
The 5.56-CF is mounted with our patented QD (quick attachment) device. It is one of the simplest, quickest, and sturdy QD device on the market. We constructed the 5.56-CF using carbon fiber because carbon fiber is 10x stronger than steel and 5x lighter making this suppressor one of the lightest and most durable on the market. The patented COOL-CORE technology allows the suppressor to be subjected to fire without absorbing the heat. This keeps the suppressor cool to the touch while firing. Check out our videos for more detailed suppressor information.
The OCTAVE 12 is attached to the shotgun with adapters that utilize the choke threads of your shotgun. Different threaded adapters are available. We constructed it using carbon fiber because carbon fiber is 10x stronger than steel and 5x lighter making this suppressor one of the lightest and most durable on the market. The patented COOL-CORE technology allows the suppressor to be subjected to fire without absorbing the heat. This keeps the suppressor cool to the touch while firing. The OCTAVE 12 also is threaded at the end for chokes and comes with a set of 3. (I, III, IIIII) Check out our videos for more detailed suppressor information.
