Rugged Suppressors' Obsidian 45 Pistol Suppressor lead

Rugged Suppressors is hitting 2016 hard — and quietly — with the Obsidian 45, “the industry’s quietest 45 pistol suppressor.”

The new multi-caliber, modular pistol suppressor meters at an industry-leading 129.3 decibels dry on .45 ACP.

Constructed of aluminum and 17-4PH stainless steel, the Obsidian 45 also comes with Adapt Modular Technology. The Adapt module allows users to configure the Obsidian in a standard 8.6” to a 6.7” short configuration within seconds. It’s full-auto rated for pistol calibers up-to .45 ACP can be used with 300 Blackout subsonic rifle ammunition.

The Obsidian 45’s namesake comes from the tough, naturally occurring volcanic glass made from cooled lava. And it lives up to its name. It comes with an unconditional lifetime warranty. (Drop it from a mountaintop and Rugged will fix it or replace it free of charge.)

In keeping with a mantra of creating innovative products that upset the industry, Rugged has chosen to serialize the suppressor mount instead of the tube.

“We strategically place the engraving on the thickest cross section of the 17-4 stainless steel mount for fast and easy replacement should the suppressor become damaged beyond repair,” CEO Michael Derdziak said in a statement. “It also serves to make the Obsidian infinitely upgradable in the future.”

The Obsidian 45 is available immediately for shipping with a suggested retail price of $850.
