Silencer Review: YHM Turbo K 5.56 Suppressor

With all the CoronaZombies out and about I’ve upped my EDC gun to a Brownells BRN-180S upper on their BRN-180M lower (review coming soon). Chambered in .223 Wylde and in my case shooting either 5.56 NATO or .223 Remington, this beast needed to be suppressed . . . but in the most compact, unobtrusive way […]

Silencer Review: Gemtech Lunar 9 Suppressor

It’s official; the silencer market has gone modular. Which makes sense given you’re asked to plunk down $200 in Federal tax and wait about as long as it takes to make a new human being before receiving approval to take that new suppressor home.

SHOT Show: F-1 Firearms Releases New Suppressors, Pistols

Coming to F-1 Firearms this year is a full line of rifle suppressors plus a smattering of aluminum-framed, Gen3 GLOCK-compatible handguns. Covering everything from .22 LR to .50 BMG, which I’d have to say takes care of most things you can shoot from a rifle, F-1’s new suppressor line is made entirely of titanium and […]

SHOT Show Range Day: Integrally Suppressed KelTec SUB2000

KelTec was quietly showing off an integrally suppressed SUB2000 prototype at SHOT Show’s Range Day, and it was a huge hit. For obvious reasons. The folding, lightweight 9mm carbine is a super handy little gun, and suppressing it within the footprint of a 16-inch barrel is a big win. This is an entirely in-house project […]
