The SureFire SOCOM68 Fast-AttachÂ® suppressor is a 6.8 mm/.277 caliber version of SureFireâ€™s SOCOM556-RC, the world’s most advanced 5.56 mm rifle suppressor. The SOCOM556-RC was selected for the M4 and Mk18 carbines by US Special Operations Command after placing first in the most extensive and rigorous suppressor testing ever conducted, and it also received the USSOCOM official safety verification in support of fielding.
Compact and lightweight, the SOCOM68 suppressor adds only 4 inches (approximately) to the overall length of your rifle. Like all SureFire Fast-Attach models, the SOCOM556-RC produces minimal, consistent point-of-impact shift compared with the unsuppressed weapon regardless of the number of attach-detach cycles.
The SOCOM68 features advanced internal venting to reduce back pressure, reducing the suppressed cyclic rate and gas blowback on the operator. The new design also includes an integrated blast shield in the back section that increases durability. SureFire’s patent-pendin-plate design, along with proprietary improvements in gas-flow dynamics, nearly eliminates first-round flash, a technological breakthrough in this area. It also attenuates noise and dust signatures to an unprecedented degree.
A new indexing system means this suppressor mounts to a current-model SureFire muzzle brake or flash hider even more solidly than our previous versions, and is easier to remove after extended firing since the index tab is in a low carbon-buildup area.
The SOCOM68 is constructed from advanced US mill-certified high-temperature alloys and heat-treated stainless steel, and features a tough, corrosion-resistant Ionbond coating on the Fast-AttachÂ® lock ring and Cerakoteâ„¢ceramic finish on the suppressor body, in either Black or Dark Earth color.
All SureFire SOCOM Series suppressors require a compatible, latest-model SureFire muzzle brake/adapter or flash hider/adapter for attachment to a firearmâ€”see Parts and Accessories on this page.
SureFire sound suppressors and machine guns combine every important suppressor feature: excellent sound, flash, and dust signature reductionâ€”key components of SureFire’s Total Signature Reductionâ„¢(TSR); minimal and consistent zero shift regardless of attach/detach cycles; rock-solid attachment in seconds; compact size; minimal weight; fail-safe baffles to prevent bullet side-exit; and extreme durability permitting full-time use. In fact, your SureFire suppressor should outlast your firearm barrel, depending on use.
All SureFire Fast-AttachÂ® sound suppressors provide crucial tactical benefitsâ€”they reduce the weaponâ€™s sound signature, concealing operator’s position and protecting both the operator and team members against both permanent and temporary hearing loss, while enhancing situational awareness and communication; reduce or virtually eliminate muzzle flash, concealing operator’s position and preserving night vision and unobstructed view; reduce dust signature, concealing operatorâ€™s positionted view; and reduce recoil, improving bullet impact observation and allowing for faster follow-up shots.
NOTE: SureFire SOCOM Series Fast-Attach sound suppressors, muzzle brake/suppressor adapters, and flash hider/suppressor adapters are not compatible with previous generation SureFire Fast-Attach sound suppressors, muzzle brakes, or flash hiders.
