Over the last few years, Savage Arms has expanded into a number of new product categories, ranging from shotguns with its Renegauge to handguns with its Stance concealed-carry pistol and all-American 1911. Now, the company is entering yet another category with the launch of its AccuCan suppressor line-up.

Three models round out Savage's suppressor offerings at launch. The first is the AC22, a .22-cal. rimfire can designed for use on firearms chambered in .22 Long Rifle, .22 WMR and .17 HMR. The next is the AC30, a .30-cal. suppressor made for use with .308 Win.- and 6.5 mm Creedmoor-chambered guns, yet is also capable of being used on firearms in other chamberings, such as 6.5 PRC, .300 Blackout, 300 PRC and even .300 Win. Mag. The largest suppressor in the new collection is the AC338, designed specifically for use on rifles chambered in .338 Lapua Mag.

Weighing in at just 3.5 ozs., the Savage AC22 is billed as one of the lightest suppressors on the market. Finished with a hardcoat anodizing and Cerakote treatment, the unit is built from a combination of 7075-T6 aluminum and 6Al-4V titanium and uses a titanium thread mount. The name of Savage's suppressor line, AccuCan, speaks to the use of a MonoKore design that's not only designed to reduce flash, recoil and sound, it's also said to enhance accuracy. Using Gemtech subsonic ammunition, Savage noted that its test rifle's report measured 114 dB at the shooter's ear.

The AC22's three-piece construction makes it easy to disassemble for maintenance and cleaning, and it comes with built-in self-cleaning carbon cutters. Another key benefit of the MonoKore design is that it makes the suppressor easily repairable, and the core can be upgraded without having to destroy the serialized component. The can features a 1/2x28 TPI thread mount and extends 5.4" beyond the muzzle, once mounted. Price: $400.

Moving up a step, Savage's AC30 is also designed to be a lightweight option in its class, weighing in at only 10.8 ozs. The design is crafted from a combination of Gr-5 titanium and 7075-T6 aluminum and uses a 5/8x24 TPI threaded aluminum mount with a titanium threaded insert, and it's treated with a hardcoat-anodized finish. The AC30, too, uses a MonoKore design, and when attached to an 18" 6.5 mm Creedmoor test rifle, the report was measured by Savage as being 134.7 dB at the shooter's ear. The suppressor is modular, having a replaceable core and end cap, along with a serialized thread mount. Its three-piece construction makes the design easily user-serviceable. The AC30 adds 7.25" to the overall length of a firearm, when mounted. Price: $700.

Featuring a similar construction to Savage's AC30 suppressor, the AC338 provides a robust, yet still lightweight, option for magnum rifle shooters, with the can weighing in at 18.5 ozs. When used on a 26" barrelled Savage test rifle, the company claims that the firearm produced 136.6 dB at the shooter's ear. The AC338 adds 10.9" to the end of the muzzle, once installed. Price: $1,000.

Notably, Savage also says the new suppressor design eliminates any detectable first-round pop, ensuring a safer shooting experience from the first shot fired. Disassembly of all the suppressors in the AccuCan line can be accomplished with common tools. For more information, visit savagearms.com.
