SilencerCo Shotgun Suppressor Hits Market

SilencerCo has debuted a shotgun suppressor, the Salvo 12. The Salvo 12 is made to suppress a 12-gauge shotgun firing 23/4-inch or 3-inch slugs or wadded shot.

I’m here in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the launch of a new product the creators say could revolutionize hunting as we know it. And they just may be right.

SilencerCo just debuted a shotgun suppressor not 30 minutes ago, the Salvo 12. The Salvo 12 is made to suppress a 12-gauge shotgun firing 23/4-inch or 3-inch slugs or wadded shot. Current MSRP is $1,400.

The Salvo 12 is built around a series of rods and baffles to muffle the sound of a shotgun blast, and SilencerCo promises it will greatly reduce the recoil on a shotgun, too. The suppressor is built in four different size configurations, from 6.42 inches long to just a bit over 12 inches, and weights from 21 ounces, at the smaller length, up to 34.5 ounces.

SilencerCo tested the Salvo 12 with pump-action, gas-driven and inertia-driven shotguns from the top shotgun makers, including Beretta, Browning, Mossberg, Remington and Weatherby.

I will be shooting the Savlo 12 on a variety of shotgun platforms this afternoon. Can’t wait!  More photos and video to come.

Way too long and heavy to be functional. In my opinion the biggest opportunity will be to integrate the suppressor into the barrel. You can keep some balance and run the suppressor or the last 12' of the barrel

No, but it would sure save your hearing if you ever had to fire a shotgun at a bad guy indoors.

I'm guessing these won't help the way your shotgun 'swings' on a bird. Adding 1.5 to 2 lbs on the end of my barrel won't help the handling characteristics much.
