SHOT Show 2016: Delta P Design Suppressor Excels at Weight, Sound and Visual Signature Reduction

Delta P Design BREVIS II 5.56's short overall length of 3.7in allows the BREVIS II 5.56 to be employed in close quarters without a handling penalty. The overall length of the BREVIS II 5.56 is close to that of two M16-A2 flash hiders. The BREVIS II is a true flash hider replacement that performs as part of the host system. With a lifespan similar to that of the barrel, this suppressor is rated for select fire use and performs well with 5.56 NATO barrels as short as 7.5 inches.

The BREVIS II 5.56 grew from the concept of offering a fully functional sound and flash suppressor within 2X of the length envelope of a traditional 5.56 flash hider. In addition to this short length, this suppressor supplies performance appropriate for full length suppressors. The suppressor offers very light weight while at the same time possessing unrivaled durability.

The suppressor is constructed in its entirety of a single piece of proprietary hardened Inconel alloy vs. a collection of individual parts. This suppressor possesses a weight (11.5oz) only previously seen with titanium suppressors, according to the company. This construction allows the BREVIS II 5.56 to be manufactured without welds, threaded connections, press fittings or other traditional points of failure previously seen with suppressors. Also available at 6.6oz Delta P offers a titanium variant, called the Ultra, which is described by President as a titanium-inconal hybrid.

The BREVIS II 5.56 is designed to be able to be fielded as an armorer level installation that may be left on the host barrel. The host barrel may be serviced with the suppressor attached. The standard NATO 19mm wrench flats allow for a consistent torque during installation.

As with all BREVIS II suppressors, the materials are extremely corrosion resistant and come standard with a high temp infrared absorptive ceramic coating.

Delta P Design first debuted the BREVIS line of suppressors in 2008 with the BREVIS 7.62. Since then the company has continuously refined its products with the input of end users.
