Salvo 12 Suppressor for Saiga

Saiga-12 suppressor

SilencerCo is now selling an adapter for the Salvo 12 suppressor to be used on the Saiga 12 shotgun. The choke mount adapter is 7876 rubles ($120 US). [Ed. note: With the current state of the ruble, this is subject to frequent, unpredictable fluctuation.]

SilencerCo put together an informational video using archived footage from the Evil Empire. The video is well done, complete with mag dumps for Mother Russia and party approved dual wielding:

In all seriousness, the Salvo 12 is a very good suppressor. I had a chance to shoot one at the Industry Day at the Range event prior to the SHOT Show last month.

I observed the shotgun suppressor did an excellent job at reducing the sound and muzzle rise when shooting. Sure, the suppressor looks a little ungainly on the end of the barrel, but it works. For me, having the product do what it is supposed to do is far more important than how it looks.

If you are not already familiar with the Salvo 12, it is a sound suppressor designed for 12 gauge shotguns. The shooter can adjust the length of the Salvo 12 to find the right balance of weight, length and sound attenuation.

At it’s full 12″ length, SilencerCo states the suppressor will reduce the muzzle blast to an average of 136.8 dB. When I was at the range day, I was very impressed by how much attenuation this thing is capable of.

The Salvo 12 is available now, as is the above mentioned Saiga 12 adapter. The Salvo 12 carries a MSRP of $1,400.
