Furthering their reputation for constant innovation in firearm sound suppression, SilencerCo has released the Omega–the shortest, lightest and quietest full-auto centerfire rifle silencer on the market.

Combining the best features from the Harvester, Saker and Specwar rifle series – all leaders in their respective classes–SilencerCo has built a true multipurpose product that excels in any scenario.

"The fact that we have the best performing and selling trio of .30 caliber silencers on the market doesn't mean we stop innovating," states SilencerCo CEO Joshua Waldron. "We're constantly looking for ways to improve upon our successes, and 2015 will be no exception."

The Omega is comprised of titanium, tool-grade stainless steel and Stellite, keeping its weight at 14 ounces, while providing strength sufficient for full auto applications. Length is only 7 inches using a direct thread mount, or 7 ¾ inches with the Active Spring Retention (ASR) quick-detach mount – both included with each purchase. Sound is minimized to an industry-leading 133 decibels on a .308 platform. In addition, a removable Anchor Brake provides significant recoil reduction for larger calibers.

Available immediately, the Omega will start shipping to distributors in January 2015. For more information, visit: http://www.silencerco.com/omega.
