SilencerCo Introduces Shorter and Lighter K Versions of 5.56 Saker and Specwar Suppressors

SilencerCo is making a lot of great moves including the latest release of a K variant for their popular Saker and Specwar Suppressors, offering increased mobility through a lighter and shorter design without an adverse reduction in functionality. We have provided their full release below along with specs for each new suppressor. The video gives you a good look at functionality and a comparison with previous models.

West Valley City, UTAH - September 26, 2014 | 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 is now opening these models up for commercial sale.

"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 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.
