The quest for the quietest can seems to have taken a back seat this year. The biggest craze was modular and short silencers designed to make firearms as small and maneuverable as possible. The SilencerCo Omega 9K is one of the best examples of this design mentality.
TTAG’s readers were impressed enough by the 9K to choose it as 2016’s Best New Silencer. This is SilencerCo’s third straight award in this category, winning in 2014 for their Salvo and in 2015 for their Omega modular silencer. Quite a hat trick.
