Feast your eyes on the AMTAC Fire Ant — a new suppressor built for both rimfire handguns and rifles.
Touted in the press release as one of the quietest rimfire suppressors out there in the marketplace, the AMTAC Fire Ant achieves up to 36dB noise reduction. Meanwhile, its baffle structure is cut from hardened stainless steel in a single operation and threads right on to the barrel. The monocore design offers increased velocity, removes the possibility of baffle strikes, and makes it tough enough for a lifetime of use.

The AMTAC Fire Ant uses an end-mount attachment on rifles and handguns with a 1/2×28 thread, the company says. Thread adapters are available for guns with both non-standard and metric threads.
“Customers familiar with AMTAC’s reputation for quality and performance have been very vocal in requesting a solution for a rimfire suppressor,” AMTAC GM Greg Ballash said in the press release. “With the release of the Fire Ant, we’re providing shooters with one of the quietest and most durable products on the market at a price point that makes suppressor ownership realistic and attainable for every gun owner out there.
“We believe the backlog of ATF 41F is nearly behind us, and with our current Tax Stamp promotion, there really has never been a better time to get into the suppressor game.”
