Primary Weapons Systems Introduces New Suppressor Line

Primary Weapons Systems announces launch of the BDE® (Bravo Delta Echo), constructed with state-of-the-art 3D printing titanium technology.

Introducing BDE® (Bravo Delta Echo), the revolutionary new suppressor line from Primary Weapons Systems. The BDE® 762 is the first suppressor manufactured by PWS and the first to be released in the BDE® line.

This suppressor is constructed of lightweight titanium alloy, commonly used in high-strength components in medical, motor sport and aerospace applications. Its modular design allows for easy customization, shipping with four removable baffles as well as two wrenches for quick configuration.

The baffles are constructed on a state-of-the-art 3D printer at PWS, then finished on in-house CNC machines. The 3D printing allows for a more effective, complex, and lighter weight construction of titanium than traditionally machined parts. The entrance chamber, being the serialized component, features a universal 1.375×24 TPI pattern allowing for compatibility with a variety of existing suppressor mounts. Each baffle is taper-threaded to minimize carbon locking as well as loosening, both commonly seen on suppressors. The internal baffle notches are symmetrically designed ensuring accuracy is not impacted, while the non-modular baffles allow gas to be diverted to lower the backpressure. The exterior design of the suppressor has been engineered for both form and function, to dissipate heat mirage and help keep the line of sight clear. All components receive a titanium anodizing treatment for a nonporous and anti-galling surface, then high temperature Cerakote is applied on the exterior for a sleek finish.

One of the things I’ve always admired about PWS has been the ability to innovate. The addition of additive manufacturing (3D printing) capabilities to our Boise facility will further accelerate that commitment. We feel confident that the BDE® 762 has versatility and performance characteristics that simply can’t be replicated with traditional suppressor manufacturing processes.
