The Rugged  Surge is a modular suppressor with a thread on locking mount. 

Below is an example of a direct thread suppressor mount.  In this example, the suppressor threads on the muzzle where the flash hider or muzzle brake would thread

The Ghost is a modular .45 suppressor that includes a wipe. 

​This is the SIG SRD762QD mount.  Its a modular mount.  It is a thread on mount with a single latch.

​This is the Surefire mount system.  It is a slip on style mount with a rotating collar that engages the mount to lock the suppressor on the mount

This suppressor has a monocore baffle stack.

I am often ask about suppressor mount sytems and ​​design.  To the left, I have an X-ray of silencers that was from Robert Silvers of AAC. 


A suppressor, sound suppressor, sound moderator, or silencer is a device attached to or part of the barrel of a firearm or air gun which reduces the amount of noise and visible muzzle flash generated by firing. Suppressors are typically constructed of a metal cylinder with internal mechanisms to reduce the sound of firing by slowing the escaping propellant gas and can also slightly increase the speed of the bullet.

​When a firearm is discharged, there are three ways sound is produced.
Muzzle blast (high-temperature, high-pressure gases escaping after bullet)
Sonic boom (sound associated with shock waves created by an object exceeding the speed of sound)
Mechanical noise (moving parts of the firearm)

A suppressor can only affect the noise generated by the two primary sources—muzzle blast and sonic boom—and in most cases only the former. While subsonic ammunition can negate the sonic boom, mechanical noise can be mitigated but is nearly impossible to eliminate. For these reasons, it is difficult to completely silence any firearm, or achieve an acceptable level of noise suppression in revolvers that function under standard operating principles. Some revolvers have technical features that enable suppression and include the Russian Nagant M1895 and OTs-38 revolvers, and the S&W QSPR.

The Knights Armament QD mount system is different than the others.  It slides over the mount, engages the index pin and the uses ball bearings as a retention lock systems.

These are Integrally suppressed rifles.  The suppressor is permanently attached to the barrel.

Ruger has entered into the suppressor market with this silencer.  The most interesting aspect of this silencer is the baffle technology.  The other suppressors on this page have machined baffles.  Ruger's core competency is casting and these baffles are cast. 

This is the surefire Ryder.  It is a very light weight suppressor.

This is the AAC 90 tooth mount.  It is a thread on type and a latch engages teeth on the mount

​The Dead Air Sandman L mount system.  It is easy on and off.  This type of mount slides on and off the mount and the suppressor rotates to lock on the mount.   

​The TBAC, Thunderbeast Arms Corp Ultra 9 and 7 are Brake attach Precision/Hunting suppressors.

The Griffin Armament is also a Brake Attach mount system.
