Travelers Rest, SC – Dec. 31, 2015 – Rugged Suppressors, the company that created the industry’s first-ever modular rifle suppressor with the Surge 762, has now launched the industry’s quietest 45 pistol suppressor—the Obsidian 45™.

This new multi-caliber, modular pistol suppressor meters at an industry-leading 129.3 decibels dry on .45ACP. Constructed of aluminum and 17-4PH stainless steel, the Obsidian 45 also comes with Adapt™ Modular Technology. The Adapt™ module allows users to configure the Obsidian in a standard 8.6” to a 6.7” short configuration within seconds. It’s full-auto rated for pistol calibers up-to .45 ACP can be used with 300 Blackout subsonic rifle ammunition.

“We’re known for our modular suppressors,” said Henry Graham, President of Rugged Suppressors, “so when we were designing our introductory pistol offering, we knew it had to be modular. What you have with the Obsidian is a no compromise 45 suppressor that customers can choose to configure themselves.

The Obsidian 45’s namesake comes from the tough, naturally occurring volcanic glass made from cooled lava. And it lives up to its name. It comes with an unconditional lifetime warranty. (Drop it from a mountaintop and Rugged will fix it or replace it free of charge.)

In keeping with a mantra of creating innovative products that upset the industry, Rugged has chosen to serialize the suppressor mount instead of the tube.

“We strategically place the engraving on the thickest cross section of the 17-4 stainless steel mount for fast and easy replacement should the suppressor become damaged beyond repair.” said Michael Derdziak, CEO “It also serves to make the Obsidian infinitely upgradable in the future.”

The Obsidian 45 is available immediately for shipping with a suggested retail price of $850. Visit obsidian45.com for more information or to find a dealer near you.
