When a standard tread-on suppressor is attached to a firearm, it is possible that the projectile may actually come into contact with the suppressor as it leaves the barrel in what is known as a baffle strike. Though it should really go without saying, these incidents can be exceedingly dangerous for the shooter and anyone else standing nearby. The likelihood of a baffle strike occurring with a standard thread-on suppressor will significantly increase if:
- The thread-on suppressor is improperly attached;
- Debris gets on the threading of the suppressor and causes misalignment; or
- A sharp impact caused the threading to bend and become misaligned.
With our Monolithic Integral Suppressed Barrels, the possibility of a baffle strike drops to almost zero. Since the suppression system and the barrel are combined in a single-piece construction, it is impossible for a baffle strike to occur under the circumstances that are associated with standard thread-on suppressors and highly unlikely under even the most adverse of conditions.
