Suppressors are now one of the most popular and sought-after firearm accessories on the market. It’s almost universally accepted now that suppressors do provide a tangible benefit to shooters when employed correctly. However, the rub has always been that suppressors in the United States still remain one of the most expensive firearms accessories on the market. The folks over at Creative Arms and Quiet Bore are taking a different approach to suppressors and instead offer some of the most affordable suppressors on the market. In today’s episode of the TFB B-Side Podcast Preston and I talk about some of the benefits of the QuietBore lineup, their origins in DIY suppressor kits, and how some of Preston’s own personal interests have translated into improvements in the suppressor market.

TFB B-Side Podcast: Preston With QuietBore & Creative Arms
On today’s show, we’ve brought on Preston from Creative Arms/QuietBore. For those unfamiliar, Quiet Bore used to specialize in Form 1 Suppressor kits where end-users would be able to take advantage of using the ATF’s regulations to construct their own suppressor at home. However, as is often the case with the ATF and firearms, the rules have changed in an unfavorable direction for DIY Suppressor manufacturers and as a result, Quiet Bore has had to switch gears to match the times. Today Preston and I discuss a bit of the company’s history, their product lineup, as well as some related fields that Creative Arms and Quiet Bore benefit from with some of their sister companies. Please welcome Preston to the show!
