SureFire awarded suppressor contract.

SureFire LLC has been awarded its largest suppressor contract to date. The $23.3 million contract is for an indefinite quantity of sound suppressors, suppressor adapters, blank firing adapters and training adapters. The contract was awarded by the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division--the primary solicitation center for U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).

According to SureFire, its suppressors were selected based on test criteria such as: reliability, sound reduction, accuracy, point-of-impact shift, endurance/durability and operational suitability.

"From day one, SureFire's commitment has been to increase the safety and success of the warfighter and peacekeeper by developing products that exceed the standards for performance and quality," said Barry Dueck, director of SureFire's Suppressor Division. "Our suppressors are no exception. We build these to enhance the operational capabilities of our customers, knowing their lives often depend on their equipment. We're very pleased that USSOCOM will now have multiple models available to improve their operational effectiveness."
