Two Texas firms are combining their talents to create mo’ bettah suppressors for ARs and other rifles. From a recent release:
F-1 Firearms, LLC., the Spring, Texas manufacturer of AR-style rifles and skeletonizing features, and Crux Suppressors, which manufactures lightweight titanium silencers, have formed a joint-operating and technology-sharing agreement to supply exciting firearms-suppression devices to customers faster.
Dion Podgurny, Owner of F-1 Firearms, said, “F-1 Firearms will manufacture Crux Suppressors in this Joint Operating Agreement and then ship and provide customer support for Crux. This partnership of manufacturing and shared office functions between F-1 Firearms and Crux will bring customers value, innovation, and speed to the delivery of cutting-edge suppressors. Crux will integrate into F-1 Firearms’ sales-and-administration team, including moving into F-1’s facility, which opens access to F-1’s dealer and distributor network. F-1 Firearms parked its suppressor ideas and innovation for too long, and now we will bring them into a new product line marketed under the Crux brand.”
Cade Nobles , Co-Owner at Crux Suppressors, said, “We here at Crux Suppressors value our customers. We’re undergoing a significant transformation within our organization to address demand, manufacturing, customer service, quality and personnel to align with a better experience. We understand some disruption is inevitable as we integrate, and we appreciate our customers’ continued patience and support.”
Kyle Haman, Vice President of Production at F-1, said, “We are happy to help out a fellow Texas company. F-1 Firearms has world-class manufacturing, finishing, and assembly departments, so we can assist them and help deliver Crux products in a timely manner.”
Haman added, “Crux Suppressors has a valuable product line of suppressors and accessories with growing challenges, so a manufacturing and technology operating agreement helps us deliver and support those great products to our customers. We are setting production levels to have minimum level inventory and quicker delivery to the origin of the order. Our goal would be to have suppressors transferred to the dealer location of order within one week. Support calls answered and handled same day. More personal touch with dealers and distributors.”
Tyler Nobles, President and Co-Owner of Crux Suppressors, said, “We are committed to finally having ample inventory and first-class customer service. We appreciate the feedback and patience we have received from existing customers and dealers. I believe we will be an improvement story in the industry before too long.”

About Crux Suppressors, Inc.
The Crux name is pronounced “crow.” Crux Suppressor’s Patented Sigma Baffle Technology was developed with the latest in computational fluid analysis, employing supersonic vortices in every baffle. This allows for hearing-safe suppressors that are as small as 1.375 inches in diameter and 7.5 inches long and weigh just over 10 ounces, yet a Crux will still outperform suppressors that are two to five times the size and weight. Crux’s Precision Mounting System (PMS) is a modular design that utilizes self-locking threads and a conical coaxial alignment feature that perfectly mounts Crux suppressors to various firearms. The PMS system includes brakes, flash hiders, direct-thread adapters, A2 flash-hider adapters, and OEM flash-hider adapters and is a more robust design than direct-thread mounting systems. Crux Suppressors is currently based in Conroe, Texas, located about 40 miles north of Houston.
