Have you ever seen a Suppressor for the .50 BMG in real life? I did the other week, and they are much larger than I anticipated. Then again, the mighty .50 BMG is a large round with a lot of gas to take care of once fired. The new Surefire SOCOM 50 SPS Suppressor is probably a bit smaller than the one I looked at, but it’s still a Beast at 86 oz (2438 g) and a length of 14.4 in (36.6 cm).
Below you can find Surefire’s description of their new Suppressor:
Tame The Beast.
Highly specialized tools in the arsenal of our warfighters, .50 BMG rifles such as the TAC50 and M107 deliver a cannon – like report that’s as extreme as the weapons themselves.
The new SureFire SOCOM50 – SPS tames these beasts with patented baffle technology that significantly attenuates sound, reduces flash by an amazing 99% and virtually eliminates dust signature to mask the shooter’s position.
The SOCOM50 – SPS is designed and engineered to exacting tolerances and test fired to ensure sub – MOA accuracy.Precision manufacturing tolerances, attention to bore concentricity and suppressor alignment produce the most accurate .50 – caliber suppressor available.
The SOCOM50 – SPS also incorporates an optimized integral muzzle brake to manage recoil for faster follow – up shots. Manufactured of stainless – steel alloys in the U.S.A. and coated with a high – temperature Cerakote finish, the SOCOM50 – SPS is durable enough to survive the harshest combat environments.
