B&T USA MARS 556 Suppressor
The Swiss elves are at it again, this time producing one of the lightest and shortest combat-proven rifle suppressors currently available on the market today. Having put a significant number of rounds through the B&T suppressor before you since we first featured it in On Target’s annual AR Issue, we’ve come to the conclusion that we’re simply astonished by its combination of durability, sound and flash-suppression levels, and uncanny lack of weight. The On Target Editors’ Choice Award-winning M.A.R.S., or Miniature Assault Rifle Suppressor, was developed following feedback from returning Special Operations Forces members based upon actual experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. The resulting MARS line of suppressors sets a new standard for small, light, ultra-durable, and effective assault rifle sound suppressors.
Also available in 7.26 and 300 BLK-specific variants, the 5.56mm MARS tips the scales at just 10.9 ounces and adds just 3.9 inches to the overall length of your rifle. Typically, short and lightweight come with drawbacks, but seemingly not in this case. The MARS QD is manufactured using Laser Bed Fusion technology to 3D print the suppressor body and baffle stack of a nearly indestructible 718 Inconel, creating a suppressor with exceptional sound suppression capabilities, extreme durability, and unmatched longevity. Inconel is typically what is used in a rifle suppressor’s blast baffle due to its heat resistance and extreme durability. The MARS is almost wholly constructed of the material to create a suppressor that will last a literal lifetime. It’s also full-auto-rated and has no barrel length restrictions.
Smart engineering and a unique endcap contribute to industry-leading flash reduction to prevent the user from being spotted by opposing elements. The MARS is available in two mounting options: Direct Mount ($830) and Quick Disconnect ($950). A MARS Flash Hider is included with QD models.
