Much like power adapters for small electronic devices, each silencer manufacturer has their own mounting system that is rarely compatible with competing companies products. While each system has its positives and negatives, I believe that consumers secretly want uniformity in their suppressor attachment systems. Blackwater Ammunition is unveiling the new BWS series of silencers that is capable of attaching to standard bird cage flashiders, giving shooters the ability to swap between hosts easily and quickly.
A word of caution regarding any mounting system that is designed to work with traditional muzzle devices like flash hiders: don’t forget to replace the crush washers with shims or spacers. Doing so will help you avoid
pesky awful baffle strikes. Details on Blackwater Ammunition’s new suppressor and mounting system lineup is listed below.
All current and leading suppressor manufacturers have been chasing the universal quick latching system to make suppressed operations with AR type of rifles a matter of seconds, but no one has yet mastered this technology. BWA has finally filed a Patent for the very first, AR-Universal mounting system for proprietary silencers, fitting all .223 and .308 Calibers weapons, both for semiauto and full auto functions. The BWA-1 line of suppressors will now re-address the global market.
BWA is introducing a true revolution: the first universal AR-Quick Release and Mount suppressor platform for any weapon bearing an M2 “Birdcage” flash hider. The new line of Stainless Steel tubes with Titanium Grade 5 and Ergal 7075 cores are going to set a new standard for silenced operations in the battlefield. The specific design of the new line of BWS-1 suppressors also acts as a very effective muzzle brake, enhancing dramatically the accuracy of any AR when engaging in rapid, aimed semiautomatic fire. The forward part of all BWS-1 line of suppressors is assembled and disassembled by hand, for ease of inspection and periodical cleaning, while no tool or flash hide substitution is required for fast latch and take down of the suppressor from the weapon. Typical one-hand mount and detach of the suppressor on any AR type of rifle does not exceed 5 seconds for each operation.
