SilencerCo Osprey 2.0 — Enhanced Usability

There are practically endless reasons it’s a good idea to run your guns suppressed. Perhaps most importantly is the fact that suppressors protect not only your hearing but the hearing of everyone around you. Of course, if you’re a hunter, suppressors also quiet shots fired enough to help not blow an area for other game or predators and enable you to take multiple shots at something like a big sounder of feral hogs. SilencerCo is well known for their suppressors and the Osprey 2.0, which is offered as the Osprey 9 2.0 or the Osprey 45 2.0, is yet another example of their dedication to quality and stellar performance.

SilencerCo Product Manager Andrew Herbst made a statement about the Osprey 2.0:

Our goal is to create the best user experience possible. By simplifying the indexing system on the Osprey, we have taken a top performing product and made it quicker and easier to use.

The respected suppressor manufacturer released the following details of the Osprey 2.0:

The Osprey 2.0 uses a single button to properly index to a host firearm. This will make the Osprey more robust, more reliable and allow for a quick and secure alignment. It will also make the suppressor more repeatable, meaning the shooter will be able to consistently put it in the same position on every firearm. Previous Osprey versions used a lever mechanism to align the suppressor.

Aside from the magic button, everything else about the Osprey 2.0 is essentially the same as the original. It still has the same impressive sound signature and eccentric design to accommodate standard pistol sights.

One thing customers need to keep in mind is that the Osprey 2.0 is not retrofittable with old Osprey parts. Due to the placement of the ATF required serial number on the back cap, anyone needing to send in their original Osprey to SilencerCo’s Warranty department will receive a repaired suppressor with the same lever mechanism. Customers will continue to be taken care of and can have their original Osprey serviced, it just won’t be replaced with the new button system.
