"I've done a reasonable amount of shooting with the 5.56 x 45 mm Colt

Rifle Suppressors" by Leroy Thompson, Oct. 2009 issue.
"...I was very happy with
your suppressor and it performed very well. I was most impressed with the
change in barrel weight with the Quicksilver suppressor.
In my opinion Quicksilver
produces an excellent product."

The Army Evaluation Task
Force has tested our QSM titanium .223 silencer against other major
manufacturers and has found it superior in all respects!
"This suppressor is the
solution to reducing the risk of detection by suppressing the sound, as well
as the muzzle flash of the weapon. I would deploy this piece of equipment
in a heartbeat."

"Just a quick note to let you
know how pleased I am with the new silencer I purchased from your firm. The
quality is absolutely outstanding and it functions exactly as you stated it
would. The entire process was made very easy by you with your knowledge and
professional approach to the subject. You now have a new client as well as
a friend for life. I recently forwarded a memo to my Chief of Police
requesting a field review of this item for utilization by both members of
our SWAT team and Patrol Rifle members. Again, thanks for a great product
and for the cordial, friendly approach you take in your business dealings.
They are both a rare commodity."

"I swallowed my pride to send
you these pictures and story which testify to the durability of your
suppressors. I was shooting the tried and true subsonic Trailboss load in my
16" bolt gun. I decided to try a shot through my 18" poly rifled AR-10. The
action cycled and the shot seemed louder than I expected. Hmmm...something
isn't right here. I was beginning to investigate when the dinner call
sounded. Dinner took an hour and a rabbit hunt passed another hour or more.
When I returned to the back deck I noticed a target that needed taken and
grabbed the first rifle I saw. I let the bolt home and touched off a round
without any thought to what took place hours earlier...not good. You can see
the results on my new Noveske barrel with a donut of thread left in my
suppressor which flew 20 yards down range which took some time to find in
the sage brush. A chunk of barrel was found days later high above stabbed in
my brother's gable vent. Nobody was hurt, including my QSM suppressor. I
reverse tapped the donut remaining from the barrel and threaded it out. The
suppressor threads were straight and true with only two small witness marks
on the serialized face with no depth, just enough to remove a tiny amount of
finish. The 20 yard toss and enough energy to obliterate a barrel and only 2
tiny witness marks. I would be happy to send you the can with a sack of
shrapnel and return shipping so you can see for yourself. The first bullet
luckily traveled about 2" past the gas port which allowed most the
pressurized air between the two bullets to escape. I could have lost my
brother or myself from this accident and I did loose a nice AR-10 barrel,
but I did gain more faith in your cans. I look forward to getting the second

This is a heads up to
all of us who shoot subsonic loads and we're so grateful to our customer for
allowing us to share his story. We did bring this titanium suppressor back
to the shop for a thorough internal inspection, which it passed.
in writing have I endorsed a product publicly, but I feel your product is of
such quality it truly deserves it.
I have used several of your suppressors for several
years now, ranging from the QSM titanium .223 thru the latest .408 titanium
suppressor I use on an extremely large caliber long range rifle.
Over the years I have used many other name brand
suppressors. The quality of Quicksilver MFG is excellent. I personally
prefer the titanium material for the longevity and weight reduction. Many
customers focus on noise reduction only, I find QSM suppressors to be
smaller, stronger than and as quiet as much larger and heavier designs from
other manufacturers. I have found accuracy to be my main requirement. QSM
suppressors are extremely light weight and utilize a strong, simple and
repeatable single point mounting. I believe this is why my rifles shoot far
more accurately with QSM suppressors compared to others I have used.
Keep up the great work!"

"..offers a compelling mix of
performance characteristics. When used as a .22 rim fire suppressor, it
delivers a most impressive 40 to 41 decibels of sound reduction... I have
evaluated AR15/M16 suppressors that were several times larger and heavier
that weren't as quiet."

suppressors quality and appearance is most fitting for this package. I
can't say enough good about it. I'm certain it will pass the test of time
nicely. I have another "can" for two of my 6.8 SPC calibers, but it doesn't
even come close to the Quicksilver in quality and appearance.....
Thanks for your company's insight and
innovation in the suppressor market."
