APEX 22lr Suppressor Video/ Pic

I know, I know, video is not a good for judging the reduction of sound but I wanted to post it anyways. Production starts today and they will be packaged for delivery Fall 2010.

That's a really large OD for a .22lr silencer.

Hmmmm, would be good for a rifle/SBR can though.

Is it a take apart design?

Yes, it’s take apart (as shown in the video). User serviceable with no tooling required for disassembly. This particular suppressor is made to be shorter but have a larger OD (1.25“). The diameter does not hinder sight acquisition. It does however offer more internal volume in a short package which assists in sound reduction.

Phillip wanted to designed a take apart 22lr suppressor that he could build cost effectively so folks can have an elite suppressor at a good price. For the first 30 days of availability the APEX will be offered at dealer cost. Full retail price will be below 250.00

Sorry, didn't watch the vid.

Is the endcap that attaches to the host gun removable? That wasn't clear in the video.

The one piece core is what attaches directly to the host weapon. The core threads into the tube body. The core is aluminum and has a SS thread insert. I wish I could show you Phillip’s billet core design, it’s pretty neat. We’re waiting for patent paperwork to be in place before we feel comfortable showing the core its self. That’s why they will not be available for transfer for a couple more months (lawyer said September).

Do you know what the decibel reduction is? Have you decided on what the dealer cost is for the first month of sales? please keep me/us informed cause you have definitely caught my attention and at the right price point I might be ordering one.

OK, thanks. Would be nice to get some metering. Video is just so terrible for telling how quiet a can is.

I will definitely keep you in the loop; I’m very excited about his designs. If you are interested in more info, here’s a link to his facebook page. He updates fb with his project info first and offers it to folks on there before he post it on the website.

It’s almost time.
Patent paper work should be in any day. Phillip has been busting out cores day and night. The final pricing is not what he estimated though. He upgraded the can to have laser engraving, knurling, wrench slots and a take down tool to assist with core removal.







Final Specs:
.22lr cal
5.25” length
3.8oz weight
1 1/8” OD

Materials:
7075 Alum Core (hard coat anodized)
6061 Alum Tube (hard coat anodized)
Stainless Steel Thread Insert

I like the way it looks in the picture of the fine lady shooting it. I dont care for the new look. I like the knurling.
