Jesse James Firearms Unlimited is a very new player in the rifle world, and now they have decided to dip their toe into the world of silencers as well. We hear that the inspiration for the new silencer adorning this .308 Winchester rifle is the gas tank off of a motorcycle, and it definitely fits the bill as something new and different in a world of concentric circles and circumferential welding. The internals are very different as well . . .
On the inside, the can looks like something out of the 1980’s. There’s a ton of internal volume so its guaranteed to suppress the sound of the muzzle blast, but the effectiveness as well as the weight still has yet to be seen.
The biggest news about this can is their claim about its suppression capabilities: 78 dB when measured 3 feet from the muzzle. Considering the sound of a bolt cycling on an AR-15 is over 100 dB, that’s a claim that is raising some eyebrows. The guys from Liberty Suppressors thought so as well, and called Jesse James FU out for a head to head test in Texas. Jesse James confirms that the gauntlet has been thrown, and that they have accepted the challenge. Naturally we’ll be there to watch the sparks fly.
