Regular TFB readers don’t need to be reminded that using firearm suppressors to protect shooters from hearing loss is a subject that is important to me. Over the past 10+ years, there has been an evolution in the way most silencers are designed, focusing on reducing the resulting gas and noise blowback that can occur in semiautomatic operating systems. OSS Suppressors, now HUXWRX Safety Co., has lead the charge in “Flow Through” suppressor designs that vents pressure out the front and not back down the barrel or gas system towards the shooter. The FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team will be using the HUXWRX FLOW 556k after an intensive evaluation period. The contract is for five years and is valued at $4.9M. Additional details can be found below.
HUXWRX FLOW 556k Wins FBI Hostage Rescue Team 5-Year Contract
US DOJ FBI awards HUXWRX Safety Co. (formerly OSS Suppressors) with the FBI Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) contract for production and delivery of their new 3D-printed FLOW 556k suppressor. The Indefinite Deliverable/Indefinite Quantity Contract is worth $4.9 million to be paid out over a 5-year (1-base year, plus 4 option years) term and is the largest law enforcement suppressor contract to date.
I PERSONALLY WANT TO THANK THE FBI AND BALLISTICS RESEARCH FACILITY FOR RUNNING THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE SUPPRESSOR DOWN SELECT EVER EXECUTED BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. THE HUXWRX TEAM IS EXTREMELY PROUD TO SUPPORT THE TIP OF THE SPEAR OF LAW ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONALS WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. – RICHARD (RICK) ELDER, CEO HUXWRX SAFETY CO.
Out of all the submissions that participated in the rigorous FBI Ballistic Research Facility testing, the FLOW 556k finished first in weight, unsuppressed and suppressed flash/spark, sound suppression, gas blowback, and user assessment testing.
HUXWRX Safety Co. is honored to have developed systems utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques like 3D printing. This emerging technology allows for extreme tolerances, better quality control and flash/sound suppression, weight reduction, and improvements in the development cycle. Ultimately, they have created a product that enables production efficiencies unavailable with traditional CNC manufacturing. The 3D-printed FLOW 556k is one of many technologically advanced systems to come from HUXWRX Safety Co.
The FLOW 556k is currently only available for Military and Law Enforcement agencies.
