SILENCER SATURDAY #70: Your NRA 2019 Suppressor Guide

    NRA 2019 suppressor guide

    Good afternoon everyone and thank you for joining us once again for TFB’s Silencer Saturday. Today we are coming to you live from the floor of the 2019 NRA Annual Meeting and convention in Indianapolis, IN. While there is no industry range day like the SHOT Show, before the NRAAM opened, Adam Scepaniak from TFB and Joel Wise from TFBTV attended a suppressor shoot hosted by the American Suppressor Association. I’ve linked up their experiences in the articles below.

    It’s almost impossible to talk about the NRA without brushing up against the political world. And while I am no longer a member, I do wish the organization as a whole would better support the silencer industry and the efforts of manufacturers to promote the acquisition and use of suppressors throughout the the shooting community. Even though we have seen a dramatic spike in individual ownership in the last 5-10 years, we still have plenty of room for growth.

    Events sponsored by the NRA are perfect opportunities to introduce shooters to the joys of shooting (relatively) quietly. Imagine Appleseed shoots that use suppressed .22lr rifles allowing for better instruction on the line. Dustin Ellermann from Top Shot fame does something similar with his shooting camp for kids using Bowers Group silencers.

    Point being, as impossible as it may seem, we need to be pushing harder for the deregulation of silencers. The fact that we are forced to pay $200 and wait up to a year to accept ownership of a suppressor is appalling.

    Moving on. We spent some time in the Silencer Shop booth where many of the manufacturers were educating potential owners on the process to buy and transfer suppressors.

    Triarc Systems (title image above) was on hand to talk about their Dead Air AR15 collaboration. The rifle is perfectly tuned to us the Sandman K or Sandman S suppressors. They are being sold directly from Triarc as well as from Silencer Shop with the option to add a Dead Air silencer at the time of purchase.

    In partnership with Dead Air Silencers, we at TRIARC Systems are proud to announce the Signature Series Dead Air rifle!  Using our 13.9″ TRACK 2.0 5.56mm barrel with a pinned and welded Dead Air Flash Hider meeting the 16″ overall length ATF requirement, you will have a suppressor ready rifle right out of the box that will perfectly complement your choice of the Dead Air Sandman-K, Sandman-S, or NOMAD suppressor!

    The rifle is also fitted with an Enhanced TRIARC Systems BCG with an NP3 coating, CMC 3.5 lb flat faced trigger, ambidextrous magazine release, as well as a Radian Talon ambidextrous short throw safety selector.  All of these accompanied by our TRILOK 13″ rail give you a perfect suppressor ready rifle, ready to go, right out of the box!
