In the realm of quieter firearms, entrepre-neurship capitalized on the kit craze in 1979. The next step was to commercialize, then mass produce the easy-to-assemble kits. Soon all sorts of do-it-by-the-numbers suppressor products appeared. Since 1980, about a dozen small companies have been formed to...

Isaac Lewis once termed The Ordnance Ring. The planners1 new idea was to consolidate, coordinate, and cut cost. In 1977, this new...

Silence Is Golden Again

When the Big Guys who run this country decided not to win the Vietnam war and settled into the murderously slow process of diplomatically giving away American lives and prestige, part of this loser effect was the cessation of firearm silencer suppressor research and development.

It was open season on the doves of...

Testing and Evaluation

Silencer Area Deception

Unfortunately the criteria and techniques for judging small arms sound suppressors are not standardized nor even validated. The principal, but not the only criterion of silencer quality, is the degree of acoustical attenuation. This requires the definition of some terms and units of measurement. Muzzle blast is measured in terms of blast overpressure, usually pounds per square inch, or in terms of peak sound pressure level or peak deci-Bels. Although the deciBel scale is nonlinear, we can...
