IWA 2018 – the new born industrial venture Blackwater Ammunition announces a Patent Pending revolution in the field of intermediate calibers: the first Universal AR-platform, rapid mount-and-release Silencer System.
“Some other suppressors manufacturers offer quick mount fixtures for their suppressors” states Blackwater Ammunition CEO Nicola Bandini “but all of them oblige the user to substitute the flash hider, or birdcage, in order to install the proprietary male element joining the female element on the suppressors” continues Bandini. “We wanted to offer finally a real universal system, no tools, no guesswork, fast and reliable when the shooter or team companion needs it” empathizes Bandini. “The new Patent Pending technology allows the fast attach and detach of any of our Blackwater Suppressors to any AR-based weapons, providing they have a Birdcage Flash Hider according to the M2 Standard, for carbine or rifle M16A2, M16A3, M16A4, M4, M4A1 and derived versions, with barrels threaded at 1/2" x 28” concludes Nicola Bandini.
Blackwater Ammunition is highly confident this innovation will mark a change in the specific industry, as fast action in the battle field is a key factor to proper operation conduct, especially when suppressed action is required.
Blackwater Ammunition introduces a first batch of silencers, for all .233 REM/.5,56x45 supersonic and subsonic ammunition configurations, for .308 WIN/7,62x51 and for .300 BLK. The new BWA Suppressors are offered in two main categories: Stainless Steel outside tube and Rapid Mount Assembly with Ergal 7075 hard anodized cores (BWA-AL75 Series), especially designated for semiautomatic fire, or Stainless-Steel tubes and Rapid Mount Assembly with Titanium Grade 5 cores (BWA-TN5 Series), especially designated for automatic fire.
All BWA Suppressors are nanoceramic-coated, in 3 standard finishes: Ordnance Black, Desert Tan and Olive Drab. All suppressors come with a wire-cutting, multiple position front crown, in all calibers, while all versions and all calibers can be ordered in 3 different OAL lengths: Short, at 216 mm (8,1/2 Inch.) Medium at 238 mm (9,1/4 Inch.) and Long at 258 mm (10,1/4 Inch.).
Due to the specific design and telescopic construction however, the total additional length to any given weapon, will be only 156 mm (6,1/4 Inch.) for the Short, 178 mm (7,0 Inch.) for the Medium and 198 mm (8,0 Inch.) for the Long.
Currently, Blackwater Ammunition is testing the suppressors intensively in all conditions, including numerous full auto, according to MIL-STD 1474D standards (although there are no specific Mil-spec globally accepted for testing suppressors, an overall reference in use equals to 120 rounds continuous fire, with no affected sound reduction and diminished terminal accuracy).
The quick attach-detach revolutionary BWA Suppressors System is proving impervious to any conditions, rate of fire and caliber, allowing mount and release in less than 10 seconds with no tools.
Terminal ballistic accuracy is granted and repeated thanks to a zero-indexing, zero-guesswork assembly time after time, with the additional feature of single-hand operation (i.e. the shooter keeps hold of the firearm with one hand while quick-attaching the suppressor with the other hand).
BWA Suppressors are available immediately to all Government, Law Enforcement and the Military entities, and to all those civilian subjects who are entitled to ownership and use.
The recent EU change in the specific legislation does encourage Blackwater Ammunition to forecast the opening of a promising market.
