Do you own a shotgun and are you looking for a shotgun suppressor? If the answer is yes, then you have come to the right place. Finally, there is a commercially viable shotgun suppressor available and it is made by a company’s name that you trust, SilencerCo. SilencerCo is one of the top gun silencer producers in the world. SilencerCo announced, at the end of July 2014, the release of the first and only commercially available shotgun suppressor, the Salvo 12.
The Salvo 12 has instantly gained customers’ trust because it is marked with the same quality and standard as other products of SilencerCo.
Hunting in the fields and jungles around the world is a passion for millions of men and women every year. With the increasing popularity of rifle and handgun suppressors, a real problem about ear protection has always worried shotgun owners. Some users opt for ears muffs or some sort of plugs in order to protect their ears, but this solution only works in a controlled atmosphere and it is useless in home or field use where it is necessary to recognize other sounds for safe hunting.
Flexibility and the ability to customize is the prominent feature of the Salvo 12. You can add or remove any section from the shotgun to keep a balance in sound, weight and length. When it is at its fullest possible length, which is 12 inches, the sound at muzzle is 137 dB. This level of sound is much below the 140 dB that is a standard level set by OSHA for safe hearing and ear protection.
Salvo 12 is the best silencer for all types of 12-gauge shotguns whether you want to use it for hunting, shooting for sport or for home security. The only condition is that you must have a choked barrel. Note: Due to differences in shotgun manufacturers and choke preferences, it is important that you select the correct adapter when you purchase.
One more important feature of the Salvo 12 that makes it more prestigious is that it comes with a lifetime guarantee. The Salvo 12 carries the same celebrated lifetime warranty as all other SilencerCo products.
The Salvo is not yet available for 20 gauge, 410 shotguns, etc…
