Product Spotlight: Area 419 Maverick Modular Suppressor

As the old saying goes, "Silence is golden," and today Caleb is joined by Craig from Area 419 to tell us how the Maverick Modular Suppressor can make rifle shooters' lives golden. The design goal behind the Maverick was to develop a sound suppressor that was also an effective muzzle brake. Traditional muzzle brakes tend to make gunshots louder, which can cause shooters to blink. The Maverick gives you the "physiological advantage" of keeping the target in view through the shot cycle down to seeing the bullet strike. The Maverick's helping you track the shot makes it an excellent can for benchrest shooters, precision rifle shooting (PRS) competitors, and hunters, too. The Maverick's modularity lets you assemble it in different configurations: suppressor-PLUS-brake or a pure sound suppressor in different lengths for different levels of noise reduction. Craig demonstrates how you can configure your Maverick into anything from a short 4" moderator up to a 9" full suppressor, and a couple of suppressor-PLUS-brake lengths. But... why can't you mount the brake portion of the Maverick to its longest suppressor module? Craig explains. Hint: "If you want a muzzle brake to be effective, you need to feed it gas." The forethought in the Maverick's design even extended to balancing the total weight of some of the configurations, so you can practice in full suppressor mode, then hit the field or PRS competition with a shorter brake-plus-suppressor and not suffer point-of-impact shifts. The Maverick uses Area 419's Hellfire suppressor mount, so you can swap it on and off your rifle and still retain your point of impact.

WARNING: Never attempt to disassemble or reassemble a firearm unless you are absolutely certain that it is empty and unloaded. Visually inspect the chamber, the magazine and firing mechanism to be absolutely certain that no ammunition remains in the firearm. Disassembly and reassembly should follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
