The good folks at Gemtech are stepping up their game with their new titanium G-Core silencers. These solid two-piece cans are the result of tons of research using the latest computational fluid dynamic (CFD) and finite element analysis (FEA) software. While all that may sound rather geeky, the results are hard to beat: tough-as-nails, full-auto rated, user serviceable cans at a reasonable price . . .
When mated to the Nemo Arms Tango 6 (300 Blackout), the barrel/can combination shown above is 13 & 1/2 inches long. That’s an inch shorter than an standard M-4 barrel, even without a conventional silencer attached. The GMT 300 Blackout provides 36 -39 dB of sound reduction, and is full-auto rated. Remarkably, it’s hearing safe on the Nemo’s 7.5 inch barrel with PNW 147 grain supersonic and 187 grain Gemtech subsonic loads. Also, when the Tango 6 is used in conjunction with the GMT 300 BLK, no adjustments are needed to run these two loads. The .300 Blackout can is screwed opened and closed with the assistance of a common 3/8 inch drive socket. MSRP is $995.
Another hot new product is the “Extreme Duty” line of silencers, which is gears towards heavy military use. At the SHOT show, Gemtech showcased their remarkable GMT 300 Win Mag silencer. This silencer has been designed to be used in conjunction with the Nemo Arms Recon chambered in .300 Win. Mag. (shown above). This beautiful beast of a gun (shown above) features a 18 inch barrel, which is so short that it creates unique problems for conventional silencers. According to Gemtech, The GMT 300 Win Mag is the only can on the market that can handle the pressures exerted by the Nemo’s 18 inch barrel.
Equally impressive is the fact that it is rated for sustained full-auto fire. We’re talking Lone Survivor kind of sustained fire; not just one or two mags at a time. Sound reduction = 27dB with the Nemo. The Gemtech GMT .300 Win Mag has been tested and approved by USSOCOM and is currently in operation with various U.S. tippy-spear guys around the world. BTW, can you imagine rocking and rolling with a 300 Win Mag!?! My wallet hurts at the very thought! Well, at least the can itself is reasonably priced, with an MSRP of $995.
Gemtech has also begun production on a new line of muzzle brakes. These brakes are designed by active duty military personnel to work in conjunction with the Halo and Quickmount series of silencers, and are also compatible with blank firing adapters. These brakes function as a “multi-tool;” they can be used as a carbon cutter to help clean Halo and Quickmount suppressors and they include a breaching tool for glass. You can use a standard 3/4 inch wrench (or even, gasp, a Crescent wrench) to attach and detach the brake from the barrel.
Gemtech is also continuing to produce its traditional line of silencers:
