Sig Sauer Suppressors
The rumor mill is starting up. It seems that Sig Sauer is producing suppressors and they may have some ready to go in time for a SHOT Show 2013 unveiling… We will post any updates / updated info here as it becomes available.
Sig Sauer has been pushing their line of short barrel rifles so it is no surprise that they would produce suppressors too. The 516 uppers produced by Sig have a multi-position gas system with a suppressor setting. Hopefully they will design a flash hider that mounts on their SBR and allows easy maintenance of the gas system without removal of the flash hider.
I currently run a 516 10″ upper paired with an AAC 7.62 SD suppressor and the gas system cannot be serviced without removing the flash hider.
Update: It sounds like the suppressors initially release will be thread on – no quick detach models.
Update 10-26-12: I have been told that initially there will suppressors in the following calibers: .22lr, 9mm, 5.56, and .308. There probably will not be a .45 ACP suppressor at the launch.
I have seen photos of a near production (or perhaps a full production model) of the 9mm suppressor and it looks pretty slick.
I’m also hearing rumors that there will be a semi auto Sig Sauer SMG. This would be a SBR so it will be regulated as a NFA item. The SMG will have somewhat unique design and a charging handle unlike the H&K MP5 style release. I was told that a concept / demo model photo may be floating around the interwebs but I have not been able to find it.
