The SilencerCo Osprey Gets An Upgrade; Nominated For Silencer Hall Of Fame

Featured in The Walking Dead, The Accountant, and a variety of other Hollywood releases, the SilencerCo Osprey is one of the most recognizable suppressors in modern history. Instead of a nondescript round tube, the Osprey has a rectangular profile that features an offset bore allowing for the use of standard height sights. SilencerCo is announcing the release of the Osprey 2.0 that uses a push button instead of a throw lever to index the suppressor on the barrel. The result is a streamlined, elegant system that brings the Osprey into a new era. If there was a suppressor Hall of Fame, the Osprey would have already been inducted as one of the most recognizable silencers.

SilencerCo Launches New Osprey 2.0 with Enhanced Usability

July 25, 2022 — West Valley City, UT — SilencerCo is launching a 2.0 version of their iconic Osprey 9 and Osprey 45 suppressors. The Osprey 2.0 has the addition of one very important feature – a button. This button will enhance the user experience and make this suppressor easier to use (and it looks better than ever). The Osprey 2.0 will begin shipping this month.

The Osprey 2.0 uses a single button to properly index to a host firearm. This will make the Osprey more robust, more reliable and allow for a quick and secure alignment. It will also make the suppressor more repeatable, meaning the shooter will be able to consistently put it in the same position on every firearm. Previous Osprey versions used a lever mechanism to align the suppressor.
Aside from the magic button, everything else about the Osprey 2.0 is essentially the same as the original. It still has the same impressive sound signature and eccentric design to accommodate standard pistol sights.

“Our goal is to create the best user experience possible,” said SilencerCo Product Manager, Andrew Herbst. “By simplifying the indexing system on the Osprey, we have taken a top performing product and made it quicker and easier to use.”

One thing customers need to keep in mind is that the Osprey 2.0 is not retrofittable with old Osprey parts. Due to the placement of the ATF required serial number on the back cap, anyone needing to send in their original Osprey to SilencerCo’s Warranty department will receive a repaired suppressor with the same lever mechanism. Customers will continue to be taken care of and can have their original Osprey serviced, it just won’t be replaced with the new button system.

Product Specifications:

  • New indexing button for fast and secure alignment
  • Eccentric offset design allows for use of most factory pistol sights
  • Osprey 9 2.0: weighs 8.8 oz. and is 6.9” long
  • Osprey 45 2.0: weighs 9.2 oz. and is 7.9” long
  • Constructed of aluminum and 17-4 stainless steel
  • Compatible with pistons and fixed barrel spacers
  • Can be shot “wet” by using 5cc of water or wire-pulling gel
  • MSRP of $840.00

    Pete, do you have an Osprey? How does it compare to other cans outside the offset thing? I use dots.

    Great redesign but doesn't help me much. Already had to send back my O45 because the STEEL locking lever eats away at the ALUMINUM locking ring over time. The only real solution is to put it on one gun and leave it there.

      @El Duderino The locking ring is not aluminum. Both components are steel. But prone to wearing and stripping nonetheless.
