Millcreek UT – -(Ammoland.com)- OSS Suppressors LLC is proud to announce the City of Minneapolis Police Department contracted and issued HX-QD 556k and HX-QD 762 suppressors to four Metro SWAT Warrant and Sniper teams. These teams were responsible for securing one of the world’s major sporting events recently held in their city – Super Bowl LII.

The selection of OSS was the culmination of an extensive 4-month evaluation conducted by the Minneapolis Police Department and assisted by Sentinel MN, a leading Twin Cities source of specialized firearms, optics and suppressors for law enforcement.

Sentinel MN President owner Tom Huot said “our approach takes all the hype out of the process and puts quality equipment in the hands of the officers. Starting last summer, we presented a range of of suppressors from over 10 manufacturersmakes – including models from Surefire, SilencerCo, Gemtech, and Dead Air – and let the teams test suppressor performance with thousandsover 4,000 rounds.”

“We had evaluated suppressors a few at a time in the past,” said Mark Kaspszak, Minneapolis PD SWAT sniper, “and we had the opportunity to finally take a hard look at most of the major brands head to head and compare factors like sound suppression, muzzle flash, blowback, weight/length, accuracy impact, attachment mechanism, and how the suppressors impacted our SBR and precision rifles. After all that, leaders for both the Sniper teams and our Warrant teams unanimously selected OSS as the suppressor we wanted on our guns.”

“I want to thank Tom and Sentinel MN for their extensive work and professional approach” said Chris Estadt, VP of Marketing and Sales. “The Minneapolis SWAT officers were able to test the best suppressors on the market, and to individually experience the advantages of OSS’s patented Flow-Through technology and our new HELIX-QD 5.56 and 7.62 suppressors. We’re proud of our the public servants who are dedicated to keeping their our communities safe,” he said, “and we’re excited that more and more law enforcement professionals are experiencing the unmatched advantages of OSS.”

Then what’s good enough for law enforcement is good enough for the law abiding civvy, AND the regs and wait times should be the same!!!

Never mind the suppressor, where does one get that Spec-rest tripod?


Police officers often experience reduced hearing from firing shots, especially if they have to do it in confined spaces like the interior of a building. Silencers reduce the level of noise from shooting to a level manageable and less harmful to everyone’s ears and should be a standard, easily-accessible component for everyone without the NFA regulations. I don’t want the police officers who serve me to have a reduction in their hearing ability because they have fired guns during their lifetime — in the line of duty or not — especially if they give me compliance commands one day for… Read more »

Pure BS. How many shots were fired at the Super Bowl? Zero. If they have the intelligence, they wear hearing protection on the shooting range or other training facilities.

Suppressors for cops are just more toys for them and are a waste of tax payer’s money. Crap like this should be stopped.

Yep, absolutely useless, just like the gun itself.
Until they need it, then nothing else will suffice.
