Located in Austin, TX, SilencerCo Weapons Research (SWR), was founded with the intent of making hunting and shooting technologies accessible to everyone. Certain technologies have been unnecessarily prohibited from commercial sale or priced out of the attainable range of most civilians, and SWR changes that. We design affordable and capable human augmentation devices to enhance shooters’ abilities to engage targets, positively identify prey in multiple spectrums, and reduce shooter signature.
Born and bred in the land of the free, SilencerCo started life when two men in a garage machined, welded, and shaped their dreams into reality. They had one core belief: Guns don’t have to be loud. Now in our eighth year of existence, SilencerCo makes more silencers than anyone else in the market. We set the bar high for quality and innovation because in the end, that’s all that matters.
