)-- Gun sound suppressors look pretty straightforward and simple at first glance, but there is actually a lot of careful planning and designing that goes into making a suppressor. Inside the basic-looking tube that screws onto the muzzle, there are baffles and expansion chambers that work together to reduce noise in a very complex process.
The propellant gasses and bullets pass through the expansion chamber, causing a slight energy loss as the gasses have a larger space to fill. Next they move through a series of baffles, which slow and divert propellant gasses even more. These two processes typically reduce the sound of gunfire by as much as 25 to 30 decibels.
Acutech, a company in Montana known for their precision CNC machining, water jet and laser cutting worked exclusively with gun manufacturers and design experts from Miller Precision Arms to create an innovate new design in gun suppressor technology.
Acutech is a Montana owned CNC machine shop, precision cutting shop, and metal fabrication shop operating under one convenient roof. In cooperation with Miller Precision Arms, Acutech is working on an innovative new sound suppressor.
The sound suppressor is known as The Bulldog as a shout-out to the maker’s U.S. Marine Corp past and also because of its’ short, squat appearance similar to the small but powerful dog breed. It has an innovative expansion chamber design for maximum decibel reduction and a gripped outer surface for user-ease. Unlike other suppressors, The Bulldog has a unique utilitarian appearance that adds surface area for cooling without adding extra length. Available in stainless steel and titanium, it can be used on all different models of guns. The Bulldog is known for its versatility and unique appearance.
Miller Precision Arms is a Montana-based gunsmith and firearm manufacturing company. They have extensive experience with AR-15s and building custom firearms, which came in handy when they designed The Bulldog suppressor. Acutech has a 16,000 square foot facility with a full service CNC machine shop, precision water jet and laser cutting tables, and a metal fabrication and sheet metal shop. Miller Precision Arms and Acutech’s collaboration makes for efficient, precise manufacturing of gun suppressors.
