West Valley City, UT- SilencerCo is pleased to announce the launch of the highly anticipated Saker 762. At less than an inch longer than our Saker 556, this new addition to our 30 caliber lineup is small and light weight. Despite it’s size, it offers outstanding sound suppression- as low as 126 dB with subsonic blackout. With our Stellite™ baffle system, the Saker 762 is over 30% more durable than our competitors Inconel® suppressors.
The Saker 762 embodies all the great features of the Saker 556 including the MAAD Cap, with standoff’s and flash hiders being produced to enhance and expand the user’s functionality. The Patent pending Trifecta MAAD mount and Trifecta flash hider are the industry’s most superior quick detach mounting system, allowing the user one hand operation. The Saker 762 MAAD is compatible with existing Saker 556 devices and mounts out of the box, and can achieve 134 dB’s with 5.56. Tough enough for 300 Remington Ultra Mag, and full auto use, the Saker 762 is optimized for .308 and smaller.
In production now, the Saker 762 will be shipping in Q1.
