At SHOT Show 2020 SureFire debuted new silencers for both the SOCOM and RYDER series of silencers. In true SureFire fashion, the new silencers look to build onto the existing SureFire lineup. SureFire is accomplishing this by providing new options in both build material and caliber.
SureFire RYDER 9-Ti2
First up is an expansion on the RYDER-9 family of pistol silencers. SureFire decided to refire the new RYDER 9-Ti2 by refining the materials in order to make the new can lighter while maintaining durability and reliability. In order to do accomplish this, the RYDER-9Ti2 uses a titanium tube assembly with stainless steel baffles.
The RYDER-9Ti2 has slightly different endcaps than the existing RYDER series while still remaining user-serviceable.
SureFire SOCOM Series Goes Big
The eye magnet at the SureFire booth was the new Barrett mounted SOCOM 50 SPS suppressor.
The new SPS 50 utilizes a scaled-up version of the existing SOCOM mount and adds a new blast mitigation device to the end of the silencer. As a result, there is a 66 percent reduction in recoil reduction and a 99 percent reduction in muzzle flash. The new design was tested across a variety of hosts to ensure sub-MOA accuracy when attached.
The SOCOM series also debuted two new Extreme Long Range or ELR series silencers.
These new ELR series silencers provide support for .375 and .408 caliber precision rifles. Designed to be the ultimate precision silencer, the ELR series is made out of military-grade titanium and advertises consistency when engaging targets out to 3000 yards.
Both the SOCOM50 SPS and new ELR series silencers utilize larger versions of the existing pattern SureFire Muzzle Brake or SFMB. These new muzzle devices will be span a variety of existing thread pitches for precision rifles.
SureFire indicated their new silencers are coming soon. For more information on the new SureFire silencers head on over to SureFire’s website.
