Suppressors Are... Mainstream?

It is no longer a stretch to say that suppressors have entered the mainstream.

One of the many surprises at SHOT Show this year was seeing Advanced Armament Corp. under the Remington umbrella. While the acquisition took place more than five years ago, it's still surprising (and great) to see the suppressors from AAC in the same (very large) booth as Remington, DPMS, Marlin and others.

One of AAC's new suppressors for 2015 is the adjustable Ti-Rant 45 line. With two separate sections, the suppressor can be shortened (with a commensurate loss of noise reduction, of course) depending on user needs for overall pistol length. AAC's suppressors are available for rimfire, pistol, rifle and large-bore rifles.
