In May I had a chance to take part in the Third Annual American Suppressor Association Media Day at Knob Creek and got to visit with that great tactical honey badger, Sig’s (formerly AACs) Mr. John Hollister himself and take a look at their SRD762Ti can.
It’s a pretty interesting Grade 5 Titanium direct thread silencer design with 5/8″-24tpi threads (or a QD version) to match the muzzles of a lot of common .30 caliber rifles on the market today. Rated to provide 135 dB suppression for up to 300 Win Mag it will take everything smaller in diameter ( .204 Ruger, .223/5.56x45mm, 5.45x39mm, 7.62x39mm, 7.62×35 (300 Blackout), 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.8 Spc, et.al) as well though dB mileage varies with ammo as with any suppressed offering.
Weighing in at 17.6 ounces (18.4 for the QD model) and a length of 9.25”, it’s beefy, but wait till you look inside:
Just look at all those baffles, I mean, that’s a lot of damned baffles….
The taper of the back end is actually the back of the blast chamber and there is no outer sleeve (yup, its technically tubeless) allowing for a lot of volume to dissipate the gas.
The NFA-compliant serialized portion of the SRD762Ti is the machined blast chamber, which houses the silencer’s thread interface. This SRD556 uses the same concept.
I really dug kicking the tires on the can and it makes a heck of a difference, even moderating the high “tone” that you get when shooting high-powered rifles in a suppressor. I hope to get one to review for Guns.com in coming weeks.
Of course it’s $1K MSRP, so there is that…
