Rugged Releases the Obsidian 9 Suppressor

Rugged Suppressors is proud to introduce the Obsidian 9 modular suppressor, the most versatile 9mm suppressor on the market. At only 4.85″ in the short configuration and 7.8″ in the long configuration with an outside diameter of 1.37″ the Obsidian 9 is fully compatible with suppressor sights for seamless use on a pistol or subgun. With its’ baffles and mount machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and Hard Coat Anodized Aluminum tubing the Obsidian 9 lives up to its reputation of being BELT FED RATED® up to 9mm and rated for subsonic .300 Blackout. Being a fully modular suppressor, the Obsidian 9 allows you to go between having a suppressor for maximum suppression (full configuration) to maximum maneuverability (short configuration) within seconds as opposed to spending months waiting for another suppressor. This capability gives you more versatility as you can stay nice and short but when it’s time to get crazy quiet, simply attach your ADAPT™ module for instant additional suppression. With an outer diameter of only 1.37″ the Obsidian fits perfectly under most hand guards and doesn’t impede your suppressor sights or optics giving you more configuration options for hosts.

The Obsidian 9 is available now with a suggested retail price of $799.

Accurate Ordnance Partnership

Rugged Suppressors, is proud to announce their partnership with Accurate Ordnance.

As part of this arrangement, our three-port 7.62 muzzle brakes will be standard equipment on all Accurate Ordnance Signature Rifle builds.

Rugged Suppressors Muzzle Brake

The Rugged muzzle brake offers excellent recoil mitigation via its three-port design, while also allowing any rifle to shoot to its maximum accuracy potential. This brake also allows fast, easy and repeatable mounting of both the Surge762 and Razor762 silencers, available separately. As part of the rifle build process, muzzle brakes will be timed to the rifle. The result will be that no shims are required. Accurate Ordnance Signature Rifles such as the TMR, MARS, CTX and Stryker will begin shipping with Rugged muzzle brakes this month.

“Rugged Suppressors is excited to take this next step in our business; having our light weight high efficiency muzzle brake as standard equipment with a precision rifle manufacturer,” says Michael Derdziak, CEO of Rugged Suppressors. “Our collaboration just makes sense. We test all our Surge 762 suppressors for accuracy and repeatability before shipping. For more than a year now, we’ve been using Accurate Ordnance rifles for that testing. We have found their rifles to be some of the most accurate and consistent rifles available. We can count on them as part of our own quality control process.”

Rugged Suppressors

Suppressor industry veterans, Henry Graham and Michael Derdziak, founded Rugged Suppressors with the goal of creating innovative products and being the best silencer manufacturer in the United States. New materials, manufacturing methods and out-of-the-box thinking have created superior suppressors that users can trust. Rugged Suppressors also tests all products thoroughly. 100% of centerfire suppressors go through test firing before shipping, an unseen quality control level in the industry.

Rugged Suppressors Launches the Obsidian 45™

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.

Rugged Suppressors Releases the Razor 762™

Rugged Suppressors, the company that created the industry’s first-ever modular rifle suppressor with the Surge 762™, has now launched its little brother — the Razor 762™.

At 6.4” long and weighing in at 15.3oz, the Razor is the shortest and lightest suppressor in its class. It’s built for enthusiasts and sportsmen who want maximum maneuverability and weight savings. Not to mention, rugged durability.

“We set the bar high with the Surge 762™,” says Henry Graham, President. “While building the Razor, we focused on creating a light weight and compact suppressor that features a deep tone, back pressure-reducing design. The Razor really hits the mark on each of these.”

Constructed entirely of 17-4PH Stainless Steel and featuring a full circumference welded Stellite™ baffle core, the Razor comes more than ready for any caliber up to .300 RUM.

Like its modular brother, the Razor 762 comes with an Unconditional Lifetime Warranty and a Dual Taper Lock™ Mounting System that ensures wobble-free firing.

Michael Derdizak, CEO of Rugged Suppressors explains, “The Razor, like the Surge 762, carries the title of Belt Fed Rated™. This classification of suppressor rating was pioneered by Rugged and serves to illustrate just how durable our products are in comparison to the competition.”

The Razor 762 is available immediately for shipping with a suggested retail price of $950. Visit Razor762.com for more information or to find a dealer near you.

Henry’s Letter to the Industry

I’m very fortunate to have spent the last 8 years in research and development, producing suppressors for two great brands. This summer, I shot more rounds than I have in the last three years combined. I enjoy the design, but I live for the range. I think you can relate.

So why start another new suppressor company?
I spent weeks of range time with old friends and new acquaintances, and I started to hear the same complaints about the industry over and over again. Missed deadlines. Overpromises. Uncertainty. The lack of “fun”. So, I decided to do what I’ve always done: fix the problem. After many variations and many failures, came breakthrough after breakthrough. Success!

The big breakthrough: A truly modular rifle suppressor…the Surge 762. Why buy two different cans for twice the costs, twice the fingerprints, twice the tax stamps, twice the wait and twice the pain. No fun.

What if we created one suppressor that gives you both short and long can options? It couldn’t be a compromised product—it HAD to be a market leader in both configurations. Now that sounded fun so, that’s what we did.
