With five variants covering a wide-spectrum of calibers, CMMG’s DefCan Suppressor line is ready to hush up a lot of rifles.

What’s the noise on the DefCan line?

  • The release of its suppressor line coincides with CMMG’s introduction of its Banshee SBR line.
  • The company has models tailored for .30 caliber, 5.56 NATO, 9mm, .45 ACP and .22 LR.
  • Depending on model, DefCan reduce noise from 30 to 40 dB.
  • The suppressors have a price range from $325 to $900.

Perhaps no single accessory has stormed the market in the modern era like suppressors. Once shrouded in mystery and seemingly accessible by a select few, the noise-reduction devices have become nearly as common as the guns they’re attached. Pretty striking, given hoop jumping and extra cash the NFA-regulated doodads require on top of their base price.

The suppressor world continues to grow and by a large bound recently with CMMG jumping into the game. It seems a natural move for an AR-maker known for its extensive catalog of accessories and upgrades, in addition to unique pistols, carbines and rifles. And the introduction of the DefCan Suppressor line walks hand-in-hand with another recent product expansion — the Banshee line short-barreled rifles and AR pistols.

“DefCan is an exciting new step for CMMG. Combined with our new line of BANSHEE SBRs, DefCan suppressors will give us a strong presence in the NFA market. Additionally, the DefCan suppressor line complements our current firearm product line-up very well and will be an integral part of our plans going forward,” CMMG CEO Chris Reinkemeyer said in a press release.

CMMG enters the fray with five variants in its suppressor line that cover a wide-spectrum of calibers: .30-caliber DefCan 3Ti, 5.56 NATO DefCan 2Ti, 9mm DefCan 9, .45 ACP DefCan 45 and .22 LR DefCan 22. All the suppressors, except the DefCan 22, are completely sealed and require no cleaning and are full-auto rated. As far as noise suppression, the rifle- and pistol-caliber models offer 32 dB of reduction, the .45 30 dB and the .22 40 dB.

CMMG also offers some wiggle room in how the DefCan line attaches to a rifle. The 3Ti and 2Ti come in a traditional direct thread variant and a quick attach bi-lock QD model. These cans are the only ones with this option, as the 9mm and .45 models are both exclusively bi-lock QD and the .22 is a direct thread. Finally, the 3Ti and 2 Ti suppressors are each finished with a high-temperature Cerakote, while the rest of the line is hard-coat anodized.

Price is always a sticky point in the gun world, but CMMG doesn’t appear to have lost its mind with the DefCan line. The QD 3Ti is at the top of the price range at $900 and the .22 LR at the bottom at $325.
