Only a few large suppressor manufacturing companies use this metering system and MasterPiece Arms is proud to be one of them. The software used to test the sound suppressors includes National Instruments NI USB-4432 DAQ, National Instruments Labview Full Development System and National Instruments Sound and Vibration Toolkit. The microphone included in the test was a GRAS ¼” Microphone Type 40BD with Preamplifier 26CB with TEDS info. Finally, the calibrator used was a GRAS Model 42AB 1khz, 114 DB. MasterPiece Arms’ sound suppressors all offer the user the low decibel reading on the MPA test equipment under the most ideal testing parameters providing for a comfortable sound experience.
