Good evening everyone and thanks for once again stopping by TFB’s Silencer Saturday, where even our single shot airguns are suppressed. As we slog through the meat of the holiday season, try not to think about those tax stamps that may still be six months away. Instead, let’s look forward to some reviews that we have coming up in the weeks ahead.

SILENCER SATURDAY #51: MP5SD Compact And A Look Ahead
Just out of NFA purgatory is the Kurz–sized silencer for the MP5SD and clones from TPM. This eight inch silencer changes the balance and feel of the standard/full size SD cans on the market. And in a brief backyard comparison, I can’t tell much of a difference between the two TPM suppressors. If we are lucky, the weather will hold out for a few weeks so I can get another metering day on the books. I’d love to have a comparison between the two.
And since I am now the owner of two MP5SD silencers, I may need to find a new project that will take advantage of the integral barrel porting design. Any ideas? The APC9SD is a short list contender. First-World problems, I know.
Also, just in from AAC is the Ti–RAID 30 suppressor. It is not often that you see a robust rifle suppressor that can be disassembled for cleaning. We’ll be putting it through it’s paces and hopefully getting some meter numbers on the board.
Engineered for hard use and hellfire full-auto abuse, the Ti-Raid 30 is built from 100% Grade-9 titanium for extreme durability and lightweight performance. With fast-attach and direct-thread options, the Ti-Raid 30 eliminates sound signature with ease and is compatible with 30-caliber rifles up to .300 Win. Mag. Regardless of application – sporting, competition, or defense – the Ti-Raid 30 is designed to withstand it all. #TheSilentAuthority
From Yankee Hill Machine is both the Resonator and Turbo silencers as well as the Ultimate Top End. I hesitate to say that YHM makes some affordable suppressors – for some reason that makes them sound cheap. But they are both well made and quiet and we’ll have a shot at some meter numbers on a variety of different hosts.
The Dead Air Wolverine PBS-1 was also just released from NFA jail. We will be taking a look at how well it suppresses the M.O.D. Outfitters Arsenal conversion. I’m pretty excited.
And last but not least, the TBA Sicario will be making its way towards Silencer Saturday. I’ve always wanted an integrally suppressed Ruger rimfire pistol. We’ll be’going head to head with a Ruger MKIII and a few thread on silencers.
Thanks for reading. Have fun, be safe and we’ll see you next week.
