Tony Rumore of Tromix completed my 458 SOCOM suppressed barrel. It’s an integral barrel that comes in at just under 20 inches total.

How much does that thing weigh?

Since this was basically the R&D gun for the first Tromix suppressed .458, I ended up changing the tube several times as well as several different baffle designs. This is the final configuration. I still need to clean up the custom front site a bit, but it's ready to roll. The suppressor tube extends back 14.4" and attaches directly to a one-off solid cylindrical stainless steel gas block. The barrel is 10" long with the first baffle positioned about 1.5" in front of the muzzle. The first baffle is stainless steel, the remainder are aluminum. Gun weight is 10 pounds.

I have only fired this final configuration in the shop bullet trap, but it seemed pretty damn quiet with subsonic ammo. It is hard to tell how quiet it really is in the shop though, since that 500gr bullet rings the bullet trap so loud. The bullet striking the steel trap is definately louder than the gun.

I will not be offering these in the future with any sights. That front sight was a complete pain in the ass to make and install on that float tube and it still didn't come out as well as I would have liked.
A standard screw-on version would be a bit easier to make.
