Testing and evaluating silencers is no easy task. On the surface, the process seems easy – setup to record video and shoot the host/suppressor combination. Unfortunately, consumer-grade electronics are not capable of accurately recording the peak impulse of a gunshot. The most affordable option is a B&K 2209 analog decibel meter that has been out of production for years, costs about $3,500 used and still may not be able to record the short but extreme peaks of firing a shot. The next best option is the B&K Pulse System that is priced in new car territory and is a scientific instrument that requires training, proper setup and careful planning. My friends over at Suppressed Nation along with Hansohn Brothers, one of my favorite NFA dealers, have taken suppressor T&E to the next level. In their latest video they test the YHM Resonator K on a variety of different hosts and compare it to the YHM Turbo K with hard data from the B&K Pulse System to back it up.
