I’ll be the first to admit: for a long time, I thought dedicated subgun silencers were unnecessary. Since many modern pistol suppressors perform so well, they often leave very little room for metered improvement, regardless of the host firearm or ammunition. To me, it just did not seem like taking on additional weight and length to support a silencer that may not be quieter than smaller options was really worth it.
As someone who likes to review firearms and accessories, there’s an ongoing challenge to question my preconceived opinions and beliefs. After all, if I don’t look at every piece of gear fairly and objectively, what sort of value do I really have to share?
A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity to put my opinion of subgun suppressors to the test. The guys over at Silencer Shop recently picked up a Brethren Armament BAP9 MP5 (review to come) and I’ve been itching to try it out. After I managed to secure some time with the roller-locked beauty, the folks down in Austin recommended I try it with Bowers’ subgun-centric VERS 9S. Though I could have sampled a much more glamorous, do-it-all pistol suppressor, I decided to take Silencer Shop’s advice. I’m glad I listened. Read on to see how the VERS 9S changed my opinion of subgun suppression. READ MORE.
