Suppressor manufacturer SilencerCo unveiled today at its Utah headquarters the first commercially viable shotgun silencer ever produced. American Rifleman Contributor B. Gil Horman was on hand as one of the first in the industry to test it, and will be bringing additional reports from the field for both American Rifleman and AmericanRifleman.org.

While advances in technology have spurred a record-breaking proliferation of rifle and handgun suppressors, shotgun owners have been without a real solution for sound protection. Some choose hearing protection in the form of earmuffs or plugs for relief in controlled environments, but most spurn their use in the field or in a home protection scenario, where the ability to detect other sounds is critical.

The new product, named the Salvo 12, provides a much-needed option for shooting enthusiasts.

"The Salvo 12 represents a revolution in silencers, not just an evolution," asserts Joshua Waldron, Chief Executive Officer for SilencerCo. "There is a huge installed base of shotgun hunters and shooters that has been waiting for a product like this for a long time, and we are proud to deliver it."

In addition to its inherent novelty, the Salvo 12 is a modular design that allows the shooter to add or remove sections to balance length, weight and sound suppression needs. It arrives as a 12 inch suppressor, but can be reduced to 10, 8 and 6 inch configurations as needed. Watch SilencerCo's video below to see the Salvo 12 in use:

Adding value to the sale, the Salvo 12 will carry with it the same celebrated lifetime warranty as all other SilencerCo products. To learn more or to find out how to purchase a SilencerCo Salvo 12, visit www.silencerco.com/salvo
