In the video above, our director of business development, Chase Glenn, covers the full SilencerCo product lineup to help you find the perfect suppressor to meet your needs. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or if you already own suppressors and are looking to add another can to your collection, Chase guides you through the selection process.

We want to provide you with the information you need to find the right suppressor for your needs, so you can go out there and have a pleasurable shooting experience that’s nice and quiet with reduced recoil.

Choosing a Suppressor

We understand that purchasing a suppressor can be overwhelming. When choosing a silencer, sound suppression is often a top priority. However, there are other important factors to consider. Construction materials, modularity, and compatibility with different firearms are crucial factors.

If you’re a first-time buyer, it’s essential to consider the firearms you currently own that you’d like to suppress. Also, think about your future plans and how broad your want your suppressor collection to be. For repeat buyers, we can help you identify the specific suppressor that best suits your needs. If you have any questions about the purchasing process, be sure to watch our video that explains the relationship with the ATF, the concept of a tax stamp, and the suppressor buying process in detail.

The full SilencerCo product lineup includes pistol and rifle suppressors, as well as shotgun and rimfire suppressors.

Rifle Suppressors

Rifle suppressors are among our most popular products. If you are buying a suppressor for the first time, you may want to choose a suppressor that is versatile and modular for a wider range of use. On the other hand, our suppressors in the “hard-use” are caliber specific. They have a full-auto rating and typically are belt-fed rated. They’re extremely tough. While these suppressors are not typically recommended for first-time buyers due to their caliber specificity, they excel in specific-use case.

Here is the full list of SilencerCo rifle suppressors.

Rifle And Pistol Suppressors

Pistol Suppressors

When you’re looking for a pistol suppressor, there are a few questions to ask yourself. What are you going to suppress and how are you going to use it? Is length a concern? Do you want to be able to use it on PCCs? Do you want the shortest package overall, or is sound suppression your highest priority?

Suppressor Mounting Accessories

When purchasing a suppressor, consider accessory compatibility. SilencerCo provides multiple accessories to attach to various hosts. Whether you prefer muzzle devices for quick transitions between hosts or direct thread options, we have a wide range of accessories available. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us or your local dealer for guidance on suitable accessories and attachment methods. Our knowledgeable dealers can guide you in selecting the right accessory for your specific needs.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning and maintenance are crucial for optimal suppressor performance. Rimfire suppressors should be cleaned every 1500 rounds to remove lead spalling and unburned gunpowder residue. Our Octane series is designed for easy cleaning, particularly when using cast bullets.

Our rifle suppressors, on the other hand, are welded together for durability and do not need to be cleaned. They’re made to be run under hard use conditions, under high pressure, and be durable for you for a lifetime.

If you do clean your suppressor, avoid using steel wool, abrasives, or chemicals that may damage the suppressor’s finish.

Budgeting for a Suppressor

We cover the topic of budgeting a little bit deeper in a previous video, but keep in mind that regardless of the suppressor’s cost, you will need to pay a $200 tax stamp to the ATF. This is a mandatory fee. Additionally, consider that certain accessories may be required to accompany your suppressor. It’s essential to conduct thorough research beforehand. Lastly, ensure that you budget appropriately to accommodate these factors.

Be a part of the SilencerCo legacy!

Whether you’re looking for your first suppressor or the next suppressor down the line, we hope you join the SilencerCo Family. We take pride in our products and unprecedented warranty, and our goal is to support you for the entire lifetime of your suppressor.
