Over the last couple days, SIG SAUER announced (through Instagram) their lineup for the initial launch of their commercial/civilian silencer line. I’ve got the full specs and pricing details on the first three cans to be announced below, but there is something very interesting to note . . .
The rifle cans all use a fast attach system. Kevin Brittingham has been rather famous for his stance that fast attach systems are stupid and inaccurate, and yet here he is launching a new line of fast attach cans. That said, their system is pretty slick: there are no ratchets to play with or wear out, and the taper on the mount allows the can to more accurately align with the barrel.
That’s appreciated on the consumer end, since it means people can still buy one can and put it on everything no matter the thread pitch, but it makes me curious as to how it stacks up to the more modular SilencerCo Omega. We’ll get them side by side ASAP and report back.
