TTAG’s Science Desk has turned us onto two videos from YouTube channel Smarter Every Day. In them, Destin films the flame and gas propagation within the baffles of Soteria Suppressors‘ rifle cans thanks to see-through acrylic tubes and some very high-speed video. It’s pretty sweet.

  1. I can imagine the suppressor companies would be interested in doing that as a prototyping tool when developing – optimizing a design, especially when combined with ultra high-speed video.

    Call it “gas flow modeling with eyeballs”…

  2. I watched both videos earlier this week; thought about passing them on to TTAG but wasn’t sure how to go about it. Glad to see TTAG found these videos without assistance. 🙂 The shorter of the two videos is a concise summary; Destin goes more in-depth with the footage and the science in the longer video.

  3. Who knows where suppressor technology would be nowadays had inane government regulation not retarded it for all these years…

  4. I’m just not that much into ” gun mufflers”, to really reap the benefits you have to go subsonic, take for instance a .223 , now you’ve got a heavy bullet .22 LR, and a .223 ‘s claim to fame is its speed,,, Kinda like a detuned 426 hemi cuda with Silenciio Hush Puppy exhaust
