Gemtech has just added a brand new stainless steel and titanium .30 caliber suppressor, the new Abyss 7.62. This new suppressor is designed for hard use and stringent shooting tasks and can handle calibers from 5.7x28mm all the way to .300 Win. Mag. The proprietary GM S1 End Cap helps firearms reduce their muzzle flash, and also curbs the blowback of gasses from leftover from the rounds going downrange. This results in both added comfort for the shooter and the increased reliability of the host firearm. In addition to this, Abyss also uses a high efficiency baffle design to aid with sound reduction. While Abyss works with a wide variety of calibers, it does have certain barrel length restrictions to ensure that the unit works correctly and lasts for its intended lifetime. Shooters should avoid using it with barrels shorter than seven inches for guns shooting .223 Rem./5.56 NATO, 7.62x39mm or 6mm ARC. Barrels shorter than three inches are not recommended for either .300 BLK or 5.7x28mm. For calibers like 6.5mm Creedmoor or .300 Win Mag, barrels should be longer than sixteen inches. Finally, .308 Winchester barrels should be longer than 12 inches for use with this suppressor.
