In 2002 SureFire® created its suppressor division to redefine suppressor technology, materials, and construction. Starting with the finest U.S. mill-certified high-temperature alloys available, SureFire® engineered the most advanced and fail-safe suppressor baffle system ever devised. It met all their ambitious criteria for sound, flash, and dust signature reduction while remaining compact in size, lightweight, and supremely durable. They torture-tested every design relentlessly to ensure that it met their goals while consistently producing a sub-1 MOA shift in point of impact compared to the same weapon unsuppressed, regardless of the number of attach-detach cycles. Their patented front plate design virtually eliminated the first-round flash signature. Their patented Fast-Attach® mounting system provided a rock-solid interface with the weapon and fast and easy detachment after extensive firing. The philosophy at SureFire® has always been that durability, signature reduction, accuracy, repeatability, and sound suppression are the most important factors to consider when evaluating a suppressor design for combat or duty use.
Once they were satisfied, they had met their own goals; they summated their suppressors for the SOCOM suppressor solicitation. The SOCOM suppressor solicitation was the most demanding suppressor trial ever performed by the U.S. Military. In 2011 SureFire® was awarded the SOCOM Suppressor contract for $23.3 million.
In 2017 they were awarded another $10 million contract.
This contract is the second award based on the most rigorous and extensive suppressor selection in USSOCOM history.
In 2019 The military established NSN’s for the SOCOM556-RC2.
SureFire® makes SOCOM model suppressors for weapons systems from 5.56 to .50 Caliber weapons.
There are four SOCOM series models in 5.56 caliber; SB2, RC2, the Mini2, and MG. All of these come in both black and dark earth. All of these suppressors except the Mini2 have NSN’s assigned to them.
There is additionally four SOCOM series models in 7.62 caliber; SB2, RC2, TI, and MG. The MG model has an assigned NSN.
The SOCOM300-SPS was designed for the 300 Blackout, but works for all calibers from 5.56 thru 300WM.
The SOCOM338 TI is 9.9 inches long and weighs 22.0 OZ, but it is a beast at handling the 338 Lapua and has an assigned NSN.
The SOCOM 50 SPS at 14.4 inches long and 86 oz is a large suppressor to be sure, but it also accommodates the large 50 caliber round. The SOCOM 50 SPS delivers up to a 99% reduction in flash to conceal the shooter’s location.
The newest kids on the block are the SOCOM65-RC2 and the SOCOM65-TI. These suppressors are for 6.5mm, 6mm, .260 calibers. The SOCOM65-RC2 is the 6.5 mm/6 mm/.260-caliber version of the U.S. Special Operations Command selected suppressor for the Mk13 Sniper Rifle.
All SureFire® suppressors are designed and built in the USA.
