Recoil - - Quiet Precision -

Some­thing we hate, but si­lencer man­u­fac­tur­ers ab­so­lutely love, are pro­pri­etary muz­zle de­vices — and it’s not hard to see why. If you buy a si­lencer from Com­pany X, chances are you’ll buy mul­ti­ple muz­zle de­vices also from Com­pany X (most at more than $100 each), so you can use it on mul­ti­ple guns. When it comes time to pur­chas­ing si­lencer #2, just who do you think you’ll more likely be buy­ing a si­lencer from?

It’s like vol­un­tary DRM for your guns.

A com­pany look­ing to help peo­ple break out of this is Ohio-based Area 419. While they’re not well known out­side of the pre­ci­sion crowd, they should be.

Their patent-pend­ing Hell­fire mod­u­lar sys­tem doesn’t have the same lim­its as other pro­pri­etary mounts. This is one of the so-called “hy­brid” sys­tems we talked about.

First and fore­most, you can use the easy-to-align Hell­fire brake. But it only gets bet­ter from there.

All with the same Hell­fire muz­zle de­vice, you can get adapters for a num­ber of pre­ci­sion ri­fle si­lencers.

One muz­zle at­tach­ment gives you the abil­ity to di­rectly at­tach a Hell­fire brake, and, through the use of Area

419’s suppressor mounts you can at­tach TBAC, Crux, SAS Tomb, Si­lencerCo Omega (and there­fore Dead Air No­mad), Si­lencerCo Har­vester, Saker, and uni­ver­sal 5/8-24 di­rect threaded sup­pres­sors — with more com­ing.

Area 419 of­fers the same func­tion­al­ity for cal­ibers up to .375 with its Sidewinder muz­zle at­tach­ment sys­tem.
