There’s something strangely beautiful about the Cold War Soviet-era style. When you’re relying on secluded, secretive designers and
slave conscript labor to actually manufacture stuff the results can be, well, interesting. Case in point: the old Soviet era PBS-1 silencer. A device so strange looking that it seems more at home in a modern art museum than a battlefield. For those looking to have an “authentic” Soviet Afghanistan experience, though, it’s required equipment, and now the folks at Dead Air are designing a can to make that happen . . .
I get the feeling Mike Pappas had a lot to do with this. Mike recently purchased a BMP, a Russian armored personnel carrier, and has been driving it around his backyard for a few months now. My guess is he has a bit of a soft spot for Russian equipment and wants to kit himself out accordingly, with the side benefit being that the American consumer market gets a crack at owning this stuff as well.
No word yet on pricing or availability, but given the success of their Sandman silencer line I’m betting that this thing is gonna be awesome.
