Benefits of suppressors.
The word silencer doesn’t accurately define the benefits of a suppressor. At SEG we call them Suppressors because they do much more than reduce sound. Suppressors change the signature of a weapon and offer additional advantages. Our military uses stealth as an advantage, in addition to reducing the sound; the muzzle flash is suppressed to reduce visibility in low light. Suppressors also lower the pressure exiting the gun; this reduces the movement of leaves, water, as well as dust and sand when shooting from the prone position. Suppressors also reduce recoil.
