Factors in Judging a Combat Suppressor
Fountain Valley, CA— (ArmsVault.com) – SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of the world’s finest—and most innovative—illumination tools and tactical products, has launched a new video highlighting one factor for consideration when purchasing a suppressor. In this video, SureFire VP of Suppressors and Weapons Barry Dueck, and Director of Product Management for SureFire Suppressors and Weapons Cody Carroll, demonstrate the USASOC Operator Suppressor System Durability Test to compare the performance of the SureFire SOCOM556-RC2 suppressor against a competitor’s low back-pressure suppressor.
Their philosophy has always been that durability, signature reduction, accuracy, repeatability and sound suppression are the most important factors to consider when evaluating a suppressor design for combat or duty use. In this video, we are addressing the issue of flash signature by comparing the SOCOM556-RC2 to a low-back pressure competitor. Our combat-proven and US Special Operations Command selected series of suppressors eliminate the first-round flash phenomenon and continue to suppress flash signature through continuous firing, be it is semi-auto, pairs, bursts or full-auto. Built for consistent performance and a long service life, every SureFire suppressor is proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.
It should be noted that the USASOC Operator Suppressor System Durability test is torturous to the host firearm, however one can experience the results in the video in a much shorter round count or abbreviated version of the test.
