AREA 419 MUZZLE DEVICES
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.
