Dead Air Armament, the silent suppressor company distributed through BPI Outdoors, announced that the Dead Air 7.62 Sandman-L suppressors are part of a contract for Bergara rifles ordered by the Atlanta Police Department S.W.A.T. Unit. Working closely with the Atlanta S.W.A.T. team for several months, Bergara has created a customized rifle based upon its "Heavy Tactical" model, which will feature the Dead Air Sandman-L suppressor. Bergara is also a division of BPI.

The 7.62 Sandman-L suppressor ('L' stands for 'long') is constructed from Stellite, a non-magnetic and corrosion-resistant cobalt alloy consisting of complex carbides developed specifically for performance in hostile environments. Measuring only 8.9 inches in length, the Sandman-L offers a true sound reduction of 31dB, according to the company. The suppressor also integrates the Dead Air QD (quick disconnect) system for fool-proof, quick, one-handed mounting. The baffles form a solid welded core with a detachable front cap and an integrated flash hider. The Sandman-L is finished with a nitride muzzle device and Cerakote body.

Sandman-L Specifications for the Atlanta S.W.A.T. Bergara Rifles:

Length: 8.9 inches

Weight: 21.8 ounces

Diameter: 1.5 inches

Rating: .308 (up to .300 Win Mag)
