The SOCOM300 SPS Fast-Attach® suppressor boasts the ultimate sound suppression of any .30 caliber suppressor ever built. This best-in-class suppressor is able to achieve unprecedented levels of sound attenuation, with 300 Black Out—subsonic and supersonic—as well as .308 and 300 Win Mag ammunition, thanks to its expertly designed baffles. This versatile suppressor is also very effective in suppressing the 5.56 mm round. The lightweight SOCOM300 SPS is constructed of Inconel, an advanced high-temperature alloy, and stainless steel—and adds minimal length and weight to your weapon.
A precision indexing system and computer-controlled welding ensure that the suppressor mounts to a SOCOM-compatible SureFire muzzle brake or flash hider, via its patented Fast-Attach system, securely and in the same way—every time. It was designed for easy removal after extended firing and, like all SureFire Fast-Attach models, the SOCOM300 SPS produces minimal and consistent shift in point-of-impact compared with an unsuppressed weapon. And its solid Inconel blast baffle further enhances the suppressor’s overall strength, making it durable enough for full-time use.
The genesis of the resulting HK121/MG5 from the native firm Heckler & Koch came with the German Bundeswehr’s (Armed Forces) “Infantry Soldier of the Future” program, a comprehensive modernization effort concurrent with similar initiatives in the U.S. and other NATO partners.
Striding past another FN design, the commonly fielded MINIMI which is best known as the M249 in U.S. service, HK‘s innovative 5.56mm gun won the competition for Germany’s SAW (squad automatic weapon) role, designated MG4 in logical nomenclature progression. Fielded in 2004 and soon in vicious firefights in Afghanistan, the MG4’s reported reliability, accuracy, soldier-friendliness, and modular adaptability provided additional validation. But with two notable exceptions:
More powerful 7.62 x 51mm NATO ammo was needed for the longer range engagements that characterized the fight against Taliban insurgents.

From Tactical Wire:
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the Ruger® Gunsite Scout Rifle, the ideal “fighting carbine” in .308 Winchester that is a credible rendition of Col. Jeff Cooper’s Scout Rifle concept. Cooper called for a relatively lightweight, hard hitting, do-all rifle that in the hands of an accomplished shooter was able to place accurate, sustained fire out to long ranges, yet was quick-handling and light enough for all-day carry.
