New for 2006, the Blackside replaces the SOS-45 suppressor in a shorter, lighter weight, more efficient package. Extensive testing has demonstrated that a recoil booster is not necessary for most weapons, including the difficult to cycle HK USP Tactical. Highest performance is achieved with only a minimal amount of artificial environment (such as light oil). Although not as efficient dry, it is acceptable when artificial environment media is unavailable. The mount features positive stop threading to reduce thread wear and provide proper alignment on 1911 and other pistols.


Constructed of high tensile strength aluminum alloys heat treated to Gemtech specifications, this unit does not utilize any bore obstructing "wipes" or mesh. The advanced frequency shifting baffle design creates outstanding performance. With complete suppression of the muzzle flash signature, this device is an exceptionally effective tool for tactical users.


The Blackside is currently available threaded either M16x1-LH for the HK USP Tactical and 0.578-28 for the Glock-21, 1911, and other barrels. Mounts for the HK MK23 (M16x1-RH) will be available late in the second quarter of 2006.




The Blackside suppressor  in .40 caliber for a number of handguns designed for the .40 S&W cartridge is scheduled for availability in late summer 2006. Specifications and pricing will be the same as for the .45 caliber version. The Blackside-40 suppressor will be threaded 9/16x24 (2A). On special order it can be supplied threaded M14.5x1-LH for the HK USP Tactical in .40 caliber.

EXTENDED BARRELS: With the exception of the HK SOCOM and USP Tactical pistols, weapons will require an extended barrel for suppressor mounting. It is the customer's responsibility to obtain extended barrels, which Gemtech can thread for a nominal charge. Gemtech does not maintain an inventory of extended barrels, and there are some weapons for which extended barrels may not be available from aftermarket sources.
