I was lucky enough to shoot some offerings from SilencerCo in March 2012; I was thrilled with their performance. Now for SHOT Show 2013 they are introducing their new SWR 7.62 SPECWAR. I would be hard-pressed to believe this would not be as awesome as the cans I shot with last year from this company.
SilencerCo / SWR is pleased to announce the launch of the 7.62 SPECWAR at the 2013 SHOT Show. The SPECWAR 5.56 and 7.62 are SWR’s workhorse centerfire rifle suppressors. The entire SWR SPECWAR line of suppressors are intended to be working cans… We fully expect people to use and abuse their SPECWAR.
You’ve seen the press coverage of the Silencers Are Legal shoot. You’ve spent hours idly watching YouTube videos of people shooting cool guns quietly. Maybe you went to the shoot or you’ve had the privilege to fire a suppressed firearm belonging to someone else. You can’t wait to buy a can for your own favorite gun, but you’ve heard it is complicated. How does it work?
The first “Silencers Are Legal Shoot” event took place on April 28, 2012 at the Elm Fork Shooting Range in Dallas, Texas. Every major silencer manufacturer brought their latest products. Many smaller companies traveled from far and wide to show their wares. An estimated 3,000 shooters began arriving early in the morning. Participants saw the latest in sound suppressor technology, and were able to experience it by sending live rounds downrange all day long!
Steam-powered street vehicles first appeared in noticeable numbers in England in the 1830s. They were eventually driven out of common use by legislation backed by their competitors and “self-propelled carriages” did not reappear until the late 1890s. At the time, gasoline and alcohol powered cars were not the obvious choice over the steam and electric competitors. While they had many advantages, they also suffered from a great disadvantage — the noise of un-muffled engines.
Suppressor ownership is skyrocketing as more shooters learn the benefits of shooting quietly, and realize that ownership of suppressors is legal in 39 states. The power of the Internet has demystified both the suppressor as a firearm accessory and the legal requirements necessary to acquire one. With Web sites such as Advanced Armament Corporation’s “Can University” showing ordinary shooters the path to legal ownership, more civilians than ever before are protecting their hearing, enhancing their accuracy, and reducing felt recoil with suppressors. Over half of the states that allow suppressors let hunters use them for taking game already. Now, three more states are considering laws allowing the use of suppressors during hunting season.
