When SureFire submitted its SOCOM556-RC suppressor for consideration by the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM), we expected that the road to certification would be tough, and yet we were confident that our uncompromising standards would be the fundamental factor in our success.

Our design not only passed SOCOM’s rigorous trials, it obliterated the competition in every aspect of performance and durability. What better way to earn the right to wear the esteemed SOCOM name.

Designed specifically for use with 5.56 mm (.223 caliber) weapon systems featuring a minimum barrel length of 10 inches, the SureFire SOCOM556-RC2 showcases our know-how in cutting-edge suppressor design and incorporates the latest in manufacturing techniques and materials to produce the finest tool of its kind. You can count on the SOCOM556-RC2 to deliver the utmost in sound attenuation and a tremendous reduction in flash and dust signature. There’s no question why it is our best-selling suppressor model.

Precision-built of advanced Inconel alloys and stainless steel, and CNC laser-welded for uncompromising durability, the SOCOM556-RC2’s unique internal baffling design reduces back pressure as well as sound to match supreme accuracy with extreme quiet when compared to an unsuppressed weapon. And SureFire’s patented Fast-Attach ® system makes attachment/removal of the suppressor quick and easy in any environment, from combat to field sports.

    Shipped fast and BTO had no problem linking my purchase to my Silencer Shop account ensuring my eForm 4 process would be smooth as butter. One month down, hopefully only two or so months to go. >.>

    Fast shipping and quick responses sending my FFL info to big tex. Surefire suppressors are awesome, use the 3 prong!

  3. keel_haul21 (verified owner)

    It’s SureFire! This thing has been tested thoroughly by enough people I trust. I’ve got SF muzzle devices on all my carbines, so kind of a no brainer. Not the lightest, but durable as hell and checks the other boxes I was looking for. This is my first can and Big Tex made the process super easy for my FFL. Just waiting for it to get out of NFA jail.

    This is the best can out there. The durability and poi shift is unmatched. Shout out to BigTex for the quick shipping!
