Shockwave Flash Forward™ MK1 MOD 0 aka Not a Silencer™
Help protect your hearing!* And do so without a $200 NFA tax stamp!
Introducing the newest Shockwave™ Technologies Flash Forward™ muzzle device–now for .22lr Ruger 10/22 firearms with factory unthreaded muzzles. Its design redirects the expanding gases at the muzzle of your firearm away from you and toward the target. In testing, we have seen the peak decibel reading at the shooter’s ear reduced by an average of 5.3 db**. (As the decibel is logarithmic, this is a noticeable difference.) However, because the overall sound level isn’t affected—just redirected—the Flash Forward isn’t considered an NFA item. It’s classified as a simple “muzzle device.”
This hard-anodized, 6061-T6 aluminum “can” mounts directly to your factory unthreaded muzzle. No need for adapters. For a semi-permanent installation, be sure to use the included roll pin.
Optionally, extend your pistol barrel to rifle length.
Given an overall length of 5.25” and an interface of 1.125”, the Flash Forward lengthens your barrel by 4.125”. The 1.00” outer diameter fits under many popular handguards.
*Please note that OSHA’s “hearing safe” threshold is 140 dB. The Flash Forward is not an approved hearing-safe suppressor. Please always wear hearing protection, such as OSHA-approved ear plugs, earbuds, or over-the-ear earmuffs.
**Testing methodology: Larson Davis SoundTrack LxT decibel meter microphone placed 0.15 meters left of the left ear.
