Area 419 Announces Maverick Recoil Suppression System

posted on November 26, 2019
Area 419 has announced the Maverick Recoil Suppression System (RSS), a modular precision rifle suppressor designed to assist muzzle control needs of competition shooters. Made of American 17-4 stainless steel and American Grade-5 titanium, the Maverick RSS utilizes the company’s patented Hellfire Self-Timing taper to ensure appropriate timing and alignment of system modules.

“As competitors ourselves, we have always struggled with the compromise of performance and comfort that come with suppressors and brakes,” said Jon Addis, founder and owner of Area 419. “But when we had the idea for the Maverick, we knew we could build a system that didn’t compromise, changing the way competitors look at muzzle devices and control behind the rifle.”

Two variants of the Maverick RSS will be available: The 5.5” Competition with self-timing brake end-cap, provides muzzle control similar to the company’s Sidewinder muzzle break resulting in a shorter device designed to eliminate felt-concussion while providing sound suppression near, or below bare-muzzle levels. A 8” Train/Hunt system, built entirely of Grade-5 Titanium, utilizes the Area 419 Stage 2 module to allow shooters opportunity for training or hunting at traditional sound suppression levels.

Both configurations weigh approximately 15 ozs. and provide little to no point of impact shift when installed. Maverick units will ship with the Stage 1 suppressor, with either Hellfire or Sidewinder mount, “Stage 2” module in either 6.5 mm or .30-cal and Maverick brake. Retail pricing is set for $1,300.

NRA 150: First Gold For American Riflemen

The modern Olympics, as we know them today, started in 1896, and there were shooting events at the games as early as Athens in 1906. After all, the man who put the games together, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, was himself a French pistol champion. Neither the United States nor Great Britain sent rifle teams to Athens, but that changed for the 1908 Olympic Games in London.
