Sound suppressor

SIG Sauer is introducing the new SLX and SLH series of suppressors. Both of these new product lines were developed to meet the demands of the U.S. military in order to deliver cutting edge performance when it matters the most.

The SLX series of rifle suppressors feature the new easy to use, repeatable, and extremely durable Clutch-Lok QD mounting system. The SLX has an internal multi-flow path which allows gas to exit at a faster rate than a traditional baffle style suppressors. This results in significantly less gas and debris flowing back through the ejection port into the shooter's face, allowing to stay on-target with greatly reduced discomfort. The SLX series is a performance based suppressor that is designed for use with supersonic ammunition and ideal for users focused on flash reduction and lower amounts of debris.

The new SLH series of rifle suppressors also feature the new Clutch-LOK QD mounting system, and also have an internal multi-flow path that is focused on sound reduction. Like the SLX series, they also significantly reduce the gas venting through the ejection port, lowering the output by up to half compared to a standard baffle suppressor. The SLH series is optimized for sound reduction and is a good choices ideal for users that use both supersonic and subsonic ammunition.

Both the SLX and SLH are available in .300 BLK, 7.62 NATO and 5.56 NATO, and both are made from inconel and titanium with a high-temperature Cerakote finish.

  • Direct thread mounting system
  • Clutch-Lok mounting system with an intuitive tactile locking ring and infinite radial locking positions
  • Multi-flow path that exhausts gasses at a higher rate, resulting in less debris venting from the ejection port
  • Flash reducing end cap design
