The Monolithic Integral Suppressed Barrel: One of the Quietest and most Accurate Integral Suppressed Rifles on the Market Today

In its website, the Suppressed Weapons Systems says it “has reinvented the relationship between the suppressor and rifle making them one piece. Our barrels and suppressors are made from a single piece of billet material; no welding, threading, screwing, attaching etc. We have named this technology the Monolithic Integral Suppressed Barrel. The MISB is quieter, lighter, stronger and reduces recoil better than any other rifle on the market. The MISB can be quickly disassembled for cleaning in the field without the use of any tools.”

In a nutshell, the MISB ensures the following:

  • Sub MOA accuracy out of the box
  • Zero chance of baffle strikes
  • Superior sound suppresion over traditional suppressors
  • Dissipates heat faster than traditional thread on suppressors
  • Reduced recoil of up to 40% in large calibers
  • No impact shift
  • Serviceable
  • No increase in back pressure

It requires an enormous amount of force to be able to propel a bullet. This force, however, produces a very loud sound that can damage a person’s hearing. It is because of this that gun enthusiasts are always on the lookout either for a good hearing protection or the most efficient gun suppressor.

The sound a gun makes comes from three different sources:

  1. The gun’s hammer striking the firing pin as the trigger is pulled. This action creates a sharp, metallic sound. Although this is not as ear-crushing as the gunfire itself, it still contributes to the sound a gun makes during each shot.
  2. Expanding gas. As the firing pin strikes the back of a bullet, it hits a primer that triggers the powder propellant inside the bullet’s casing to quickly generate an enormous amount of hot gas. The hot gas creates immense pressure at the back of the bullet, usually at 3,000 pounds per square inch, which pushes the bullet down the barrel. As the gas expands, it creates a sound which can be as loud as 165 decibels, which may cause permanent ear damage.
  3. Bullet coming out of the barrel. The third sound is created when a bullet finally comes out of the barrel and whizzes past a target. It is called a bullet crack. A ballistic crack is so unique that it makes it possible for you to distinguish gunfire from booms created by fireworks, for instance.

To silence a gun, gun owners use suppressors, also called sound suppressors, sound moderators, or silencers. A gun suppressor is a device that is attached to the barrel of a firearm or air gun. It is used to reduce the amount of noise and visible muzzle flash generated by firing. A suppressor, however, is only able to silence the second sound (the sound created by hot gasses). Due to the longer and wider provided by a suppressor, the escaping propellant gas is slowed down plus the hot gas is given more room to dissipate, thus, decreasing the sound created by the pressure.

More efficient in silencing a gun, especially, a rifle, however, is the combination of a suppressor and a barrel. Among the quietest and most accurate integral suppressed rifles on the market available today is the Monolithic Integral Suppressed Barrel (MISB) – this may be the best choice for gun owners of today.
