How we test Silencers
Posted May 19, 2015
A lot of you have asked how we test silencers for our videos here at Silencer Shop. In this post, I’ll explain how it’s done. The MIL-STD-1474D is the standard military test to measure potential hearing damage from noise. This is the industry-accepted standard for testing silencers,…
Hunting with the SilencerCo Omega
Posted January 20, 2015
I have to admit that the first thing I thought of when I heard about the new SilencerCo Omega suppressor was my first car – a 1976 Oldsmobile Omega. Fortunately, this new suppressor is nothing like the car (although I do have to admit that I loved that thing). Anyway, this last weekend I had…
SilencerCo Salvo Review
Posted August 07, 2014
We spent some more time at the range with the SilencerCo Salvo 12 this week; and, once again the results were impressive. One of the great things about the Salvo is its modular design that allows it to be configured as either a 12″, 10″, 8″, or 6″ suppressor, depending on…
Hands On with the SilencerCo Salvo
Posted July 28, 2014
This last week, we spent some more hands-on time with the SilencerCo Salvo 12 – and to say we were impressed would be an understatement. We pulled out the sound meter and tested the 12″ configuration with multiple types of shot, from #8 down to #4 – and will be posting videos on…

Are suppression results really comparable?
Posted February 06, 2014
This morning we were out at the range in the 26 degree weather, freezing our butts off. You non-Texans may laugh at that; but, trust me when I say it was truly cold – especially with a light breeze thrown in. Regardless, we did set up the sound meter and spent time testing some of […]
.308 through …. an M4-2000?
Posted November 06, 2013
Well, it was bound to happen eventually; but, we finally made the mistake of shooting full-power .308 ammo through an AAC M4-2000 suppressor a few days ago. I will admit that I’ve always been a bit curious about what the result of that combination would be – and we were fortunate enough to…
