    We don't publish dB data simply because there are a bunch of manufacturers who publish values that are not reproducible, or use an ad-hoc test instead of a mil-spec test. In many cases we've tested the exact same suppressors they've advertised with 30-40 dB reductions and found they are actually in the high 20's instead.

    Rest assured that our suppressors meter amongst the quietest cans on the market. Our R&D cycle involves both "meter" testing and "human ear" testing against our competition.
