Ever since the Microtech Defense Suppressors were approved by the ATF in 2017 we at TFB have kept you updated with news. They were caught in the wild at Big Daddy Unlimited as well as on other occasions.
Here’s the story of creating this suppressor, as told by Microtech Defense:
Over 3 years ago, MDI set out with a vision – To create the most effective and most durable modular 9mm Suppressor on the market.
Testing material after material, searching for the best quality and durability, we have constructed the main body, accessory module, end cap and every baffle from 6AL 4V Titanium.
All sound testing was done in accordance to MIL-STD 1474D. We used the same manufacturer and lot number of 147gr. commercial 9mm ammunition for all of our testing.
All of our decibel reduction numbers were verified with independent suppressor testing facilities using their equipment and testing locations.
As usual with Microtech, there are lots of options. I wonder when the Marfione Deluxe version will get here?
Our entry into the suppressor world was not built overnight. Years of development and rigorous testing with endless rounds and scenarios went into the birth of the R2 K9.
Not everyone will let you look inside their suppressor, so it’s nice to have such a detailed overview from Microtech.
