SilencerCo released two shorter, lighter versions of the Saker and Specwar product lines today – the Saker K 556 and Specwar K 556. These suppressors were designed to meet a military requirement that emphasized shortest overall length more than sound reduction. SilencerCo is now opening these models up for commercial sale.
“Our goal with the K versions of the Saker and Specwar was to create the shortest and lightest hearing-safe 5.56mm silencers available,” noted Josh Waldron, CEO of SilencerCo. “These K versions of the Saker and Specwar still carry our lifetime warranty and can be used for full auto fire on barrel lengths down to 7 inches.”
SilencerCo tested the K versions on 11 inch, 14.5 inch and 16 inch 5.56mm barrels with 62 grain M855 ball ammunition with a range of results from 137 to 140 dB.
