More info out on steyr's new line of suppressors.
"The dampers developed jointly with MDG achieve these best performances with the help of the so-called "virtual volume", a novel technology that brings STEYR ARMS to the top in the field of noise reduction from zero to zero."
"STEYR UMS (universal military silencer)
with QD mounting for the original AUG A3 muzzle pieces."
14 dB (A) 1m right of the muzzle
14dB (A) by the shooters ear
Setting straight-pull mode: 23dB
(A) 1m right of the muzzle
25dB (A) by the shooters ear
quick lock for AUG A3 muzzle device
(The table below is messed up on their site)
5.56x45 NATO, 223 Rem.
580 g / 1.28 lbs
Any notion of the MSRP yet? Are they planning on offering mounts for other guns?
I think it could be a product of the AUG just not being as good a suppressor host as other semiautos.

Would be curious to see how it sounds in person.
I just want SiCo to make a damn mount for the AUG.
Those seem like very marginal suppression numbers. Regardless I'm very curious what they will sell for
Their other suppressors are listed as:
31 dB (A) 1m right of the muzzle
30 dB (A) by the shooter ear
Does "AUG A3 muzzle device" mean the tulip flash hider?
As far as I understand suppressors are not importable for commercial non leo/military sales. Nothing would stop a manufacturer to make them in the USA though.
