Some of the more interesting products of SHOT Show 2013's Media Day at the Range weren't firearms at all—they were SIG Sauer's new suppressors. SIG is releasing suppressors in 5.56 and 7.62 NATO, 9 mm and .22LR.

The 5.56 and 7.62 models feature a unique tapered design, and have a 2" diameter tube. Wrench flats are machined into the Tube for secure operation.

The 9 mm suppressor is designed as a "wet" device and is substantially lighter and shorter than many competitors. The .22LR, meanwhile can produce results near 114-116dB at the shooter's ear with standard velocity ammunition.
