Varminter 3.0: Hearing Protection, Recoil Reduction In A Compact, Titanium Package

Dakota Silencer’s Varminter 3.0 offers hearing protection and recoil reduction in a compact, titanium package designed to make your AR-15 or .308 hunting rifles less impactful on you and your environment.

Varminter 3,0’s construction from titanium instead of other metals achieves greater durability and extreme weight reduction. The combination of these things–together with the fact that this particular suppressor is designed so it can be taken apart for cleaning–make the Varminter 3.0 a superb choice for people who may be looking for their first and only suppressor.

Breitbart News used a Varminter 3.0 on a Smith & Wesson M&P AR-15 Sport in various surroundings/terrain–including a hunt for wild pigs in Texas–and the advantages from the noise reduction cannot be overstated.

The Varminter 3.0 also brings a reduction in recoil to the already minimized kick of an AR-15. This translates into accuracy–even on the first shot of the day–by reducing apprehension. We know this because our suppressed Smith & Wesson AR-15 was fired by people of various ages and shooting backgrounds in order to see how having the Varminter 3.0 on the gun affected them.

There are many misconceptions about suppressors, and almost all of them vanish with the first pull of the trigger.

For years, Americans seemed to associate silencers with the criminal element. But that theory–similar to the left’s theories about the alleged criminal use of .50 caliber rifles–has gone the way of the dinosaur. As a result, the federal push for more and more gun control has been answered by surging sales of suppressors and an expansion of the number of states in which suppressors can be used in hunting applications. In the end, Americans see the suppressor for what it is: a tool that makes hunting rifles quieter and far more manageable (re: recoil).

It also helps that putting the Varminter 3.0 on a rifle like the Smith & Wesson M&P AR-15 sport is super simple. The gun owner makes sure the rifle is unloaded, then unscrews the flash hider and screws on the suppressor in its place. That’s it. Step two: shoot and enjoy.
