AMTAC Releases the Hornet— The first AMTAC suppressor designed specifically for pistol caliber carbines
New model brings over-barrel design of existing suppressors

Salt Lake City, UT—October 5, 2016—AMTAC Suppressors today released its newest suppressor model, the Hornet, rounding out is line of over-barrel suppressors designed to add minimal length to a weapon system.

The Hornet’s over-barrel design adds only 3.7 inches to your carbine’s overall length and fits under most hand guards to create an integrated look and feel. By reducing overall length and bringing the weight closer to the center of your weapon system, the Hornet increases maneuverability in tight spaces and provides a better balance with reduced swing weight.

Total length of the Hornet is 7.7 inches, with a 4-inch over-barrel chamber and a direct-thread attachment that provides maximum accuracy to help you squeeze every inch of effective range from a PCC. The baffle structure itself is machined from a single piece of hardened stainless steel for added durability, and delivers a dependable return to zero when the suppressor is removed and reattached.

The Hornet comes with 1/2×36 threads for compatibility with most AR-based 9mm pistol caliber carbines, and AMTAC also offers a 13.5×1 LH thread adapter to make the Hornet compatible with the Sig MPX. The 1.62” external diameter fits cleanly under the MPX’s KeyMod hand guard.

The Hornet can be used with both supersonic and subsonic 9mm ammo and can run wet or dry. It is full-auto rated and comes with a lifetime warranty. Despite the minimal added length, the hornet offers up to 30dB of sound suppression.
