SilencerCo – shorter, lighter “K” version 5.56mm suppressors

SilencerCo released two shorter, lighter versions of the Saker and Specwar product lines today – the Saker K 556 and Specwar K 556.

These suppressors were designed to meet a military requirement that emphasized shortest overall length more than sound reduction – SilencerCo tested the K versions on 11 inch, 14.5 inch and 16 inch 5.56mm barrels with 62 grain M855 ball ammunition with a range of results from 137 to 140 dB.

“Our goal with the K versions of the Saker and Specwar was to create the shortest and lightest hearing-safe 5.56mm silencers available,” noted Josh Waldron, CEO of SilencerCo. “These K versions of the Saker and Specwar still carry our lifetime warranty and can be used for full auto fire on barrel lengths down to 7 inches.”

SilencerCo is now opening these models up for commercial sale.

SAKER K

Founded in West Valley, Utah in 2008, SilencerCo began with a belief in the fundamental premise that firearms don’t have to be loud and has now become the market leader in sound suppressors, muzzle devices, and related products. By investing in innovation, customer service, organic manufacturing, advocacy, education, and talent, SilencerCo is now focused on making firearms hearing safe for all hunting and shooting applications, introducing products that have never been made before, and improving the buying experience.

IWI 40 mm Grenade Launcher

The IWI 40 mm Grenade Launcher is compatible with all types of assault rifles, is made of lightweight materials, is easy to assemble and operate, and offers a stand-alone option that enables firing separately from the weapon.

Developed in cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the IWI GL 40 Grenade Launcher – which weighs only 1.400 kg – is a single-shot 40x46mm launcher, ergonomically designed, and versatile.  Available in two barrel lengths – for 400m and 300m range – the GL 40 is designed for low and medium velocity (longer than usual range) rounds.  Unlimited feed for most 40mm rounds enables operation in any situation or combat conditions.  The stand-alone option enables firing separately from the launcher when it is dismantled from the weapon.

Attaching to the lower rail of the weapon and locking rapidly with the lever, the GL40 can be quickly assembled and disassembled by a single soldier without any additional tools.  Due to its side-opening barrel, which allows a simple injection and extraction of the grenade, it can use various lengths of ammunition including long grenades.  Picatinny rails on the bottom and sides enable the incorporation of various devices and accessories.
