Suppressor junkies rejoice! The latest 5.56 suppressor from B&T is finally shipping! The ROTEX-X Suppressor is a lightweight version of the ROTEX-V which is currently in use with NATO allies over in Europe. The ROTEX-X apparently maintains the same performance as its heavier predecessor but manages to somehow weigh 20% less than the ROTEX-V. This reduction in weight should translate to a similar reduction in the point of aim/point of impact while still providing great sound and flash suppression. The new suppressor is on sale and shipping now from your B&T retailers and is sold for an MSRP of $675. TFB’s Editor in Chief Pete will have a full review of the ROTEX-X suppressor coming up in about two weeks, so be sure to check out his review over on Silencer Saturday to get the lowdown on it.

New B&T ROTEX-X Suppressor Now Shipping
The ROTEX-V has a rich heritage and is widely used on the service rifles of many European NATO countries, and has so for many years” said Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA. “The ROTEX-X is an evolution of the V, which maintains the same performance attributes of its predecessor, yet has been reengineered to reduce its weight by about 20%. Industry leading sound and flash reduction, as well as ease of use remain unchanged. Like the ROTEX-V, the new X will be available in 5.56 NATO and 7.62 NATO, compact and full-size models — each with a double-lock quick detach mechanism compatible with NATO-spec A2 flash hiders. The ROTEX-X is an incredible value at $675 (MSRP), making it a true standout among its competitors, especially given its list of military and federal end users.
I will be very eager to see what Pete has to say about the new ROTEX-X. The QD mechanism that is compatible with standard A2 flash hiders seems particularly interesting to me and should that turn out to be a reliable and robust quick detach method, I think we will have a very practical and affordable new suppressor available to us.
