SilencerCo is adding the new Hybrid 46M to their product line. The 46M represents the world's first modular, large-bore suppressor. The natural evolution of the SilencerCo Hybrid 46, the original large-bore suppressor, the 46M has the added advantage of modularity, which give shooters the option of using the suppressor in either a short or long configuration.

The 46M is compatible with virtually every centerfire firearm platform due to its wide range of available attachment accessories. It effectively reduces the sound signature of everything from 9 mm to 10 mm to 5.56 NATO and all the way up to .458 SOCOM, giving you the versatility of the Hybrid 46 with added modularity.

“The Hybrid 46M is the perfect tool for shooters hoping to suppress a variety of calibers on both pistols and rifles with only one suppressor,” said Dewie Vieira, SilencerCo’s Senior Product Development Specialist. “It’s the first modular big bore suppressor ever; it’s the answer for those who want to suppress every small and large bore caliber.”

The Hybrid 46M allows the shooter to remove the front module, providing a shorter and lighter option that is especially useful on handguns. While SilencerCo’s Omega 36M is still a great option for a modular suppressor that works with .30-caliber pistols, the Hybrid 46M gives shooters the ability to suppress big bore pistol calibers such .45 ACP and 10 mm.

The Hybrid 46M ships with everything the shooter needs to get started, including a multi-tool, a spanner tool, an ASR mount, a .46-caliber front cap and a .30-caliber front cap. 

The Hybrid 46M is compatible with the Charlie ASR Mount as well as all Charlie Direct Thread Mounts, Charlie Piston Mount, all Charlie Front Caps, all ASR Muzzle Devices, Pistons and Tri-Lug mounts. Constructed of Titanium, Inconel and 17-4 Heat Treated Stainless Steel, it is full auto rated and suitable for use with all centerfire pistol and rifle calibers including .45 ACP, 10 mm, .450 Bushmaster, .458 SOCOM, .45-70, Gov't., .338 Lapua Mag. up to .460 Weatherby Mag.

In the short configuration, it weights 12.2 ounces and measures 5.78 inches long. In the long configuration, it weighs 14.9 ounces and measures 7.72 inches long. MSRP for the Hybrid 46M is $1,117, and more information on this item and other products from SilencerCo is available at

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
