Dead Air Armament was founded in 2016 and has a reputation for industry leading suppressors. The recent release of their multi-purpose Primal .46 caliber suppressor demonstrates why. From big bore rifle to your pistol, the Primal will handle everything you want to put it on.

Designed to be “rifle centric,” the Primal suppressor is optimized for cartridges like the .458 Socom, 45-70 and 450 Bushmaster. However, the multi-purpose suppressor is versatile enough to be effective on sub-caliber handguns as well.

The Primal can accept the SD500 booster assembly, and as a result is useable on handguns, providing true multi-platform use. Additionally, the 1.375”-24 rear threads and HUB to P-Series adaptor allow for multiple mounting options. These options include direct thread, quick-detach Keymo, accuracy-driven Xeno, pistol boosters and 3-lug for subgun.

The 17-4 stainless steel construction is rated to handle the extreme pressures of large caliber magnums, like 338 Lapua. The stainless steel body features a high cerakote coating, while the mount/endcap have Nitride treatment. Consequently, this helps ensure lifelong durability. Also, at 16.5 ounces, the Primal suppressor from Dead Air Armament has a high strength to weight ratio.

The Primal suppressor includes a 5/8-24 direct thread insert and HUB to P-Series adaptor. As a result, your suppressor will be compatible with Nomad, Wolfman and Ghost compatible mounts, right out of the box.

“One challenge to creating a multi-purpose suppressor that does everything well, is the balance of weight, strength, and sound suppression. We call the Primal “rifle centric” because the strength and weight balance is leaning towards rifle level performance but don’t hesitate to put this on your favorite pistol. This thing will eat up anything you throw at it,” said Mike Pappas, Founder Dead Air Silencers.

The Dead Air Armament Primal Suppressor is available now with an MSRP of $929.00. For more info, please visit
