Here’s Liberty Suppressors’ press release on the ZULU in full:
Liberty Suppressors is proud to announce the release of our latest silencer design, the Zulu, a centerfire suppressed rifle system for the AR15.
The Zulu is designed specifically for the AR15 rifle system and has been optimized for performance with off the shelf parts where applicable. We have wanted to build the ultimate integral AR15 upper in 556 for years and finally did it! Using an Aero Precision upper receiver and rail, St Croix bolt carrier group and an Odin Works custom profile barrel and this gun shoots as good as it looks. Couple all these amazing rifle parts with our suppressor system and you have a system that is light, quiet and durable! We have worked on several criteria with this project that include things like controlling bolt velocity, back pressure, baffle erosion and optimizing sound performance just to name a few. After several thousand rounds of ammo and many months of work we have a system that exceeds all our expectations and brings all this to you in a lightweight package. Get yours today from a class 3 dealer near you! Immediately available for transfer, all NFA rules apply.
David Saylors, Liberty Suppressors’ owner and lead designer, has put together a video talking about the new Zulu upper:
