Dead Air Silencers | No Quarter

It was founded by Mike Pappas, and if that name rings a bell, it’s because Mike co-founded another silencer company back in 2008. Among others, Mike is also teamed up with silencer designer Todd Magee. Mike and Todd have set out to build the best suppressors on the market. There is no substitute for experience.

It’s in the design.

Look at any Dead Air Silencers product and you’ll see attention to detail and aesthetic choices driven solely by engineering performance. No gimmicks or short cuts – just pure performance. As Mike puts it: “I’m finally building the no compromise suppressors that I’ve always wanted to make. No corporate bottom lines. The only thing that matters to me is how it sounds; And the Sandman™ sounds awesome…”

It’s in the materials.

There is no substitute for materials and no shortcuts with Dead Air. Our materials are chosen for the intended use of the silencer. Our hard-use silencers are made with 100% Stellite baffles – costing three times as much as stainless steel, while withstanding abuse better than Inconel under extreme use and conditions. Even in our titanium and aluminum offerings, we opt for top-grade materials to ensure years of use and enjoyment.

It’s in the manufacturing.

Design and materials are part of the equation, but there is no substitute for thirty years of manufacturing excellence. Every Dead Air suppressor is manufactured in Georgia by highly trained Americans intent on manufacturing the best suppressor on the market. Our standards are simple, “good isn’t good enough” and if a product comes off the line not up to par, then the can gets canned. It’s that simple.
