The HX-QD 556 Ti is rated for full-auto fire with 5.56 rifles and no minium barrel restrictions. The New Flash Cap eliminates virtually all-flash and combined with OSS’s patented and proven Flow-through and Torque lock technology makes for superior accuracy and reliability.
Dipping into the white paper provided on the OSS website there are a few other interesting pieces we can see about the Ti release of the suppressor. The suppressor is capable of delivering a Sound Pressure Level of 140 dB at the shooter’s ear per the TOP 3-2-045 Testing Methodology. This result, however, is highly dependent on the weapon system used, barrel length ammunition, and environment.
The white paper also goes on to list a maximum external temperature for the suppressor of 1238 degrees Fahrenheit. This was tested using a reliability stress test which consists of 8 magazines shot in succession after the system has cooled to a temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit using forced air before proceeding to the next magazine. During this test, the firearm is not cleaned or maintained until after the test is complete.
The suppressor is available for purchase online through Silencer Shop. The suppressor goes for an MSRP of $1,199 plus the additional cash you’ll have to throw down for the transfer and tax stamp.
