When it comes to suppressing big bore calibers, such as .50 Beowulf, .50 Alaskan, .458 SOCOM, .45-70, and so on, your initial instinct might be to choose a one-suppressor-does-all solution. Unfortunately, the all-in-one options start having problems as the bore size increases. For some guidance, we offer the following words of advice:
In order to effectively suppress a big bore caliber (e.g., .50 Beowulf or .45-70), a suppressor needs quite a bit of volume. Do-it-all models run small because nobody wants to run a can that is big enough for a .458 on their AR-15. (Wink, wink.)
Founded by Tom Bowers in the late 1990s, Bowers Group designs and manufactures subgun/carbine suppressors in 9mm and .45, three .22 offerings, big bore options, and even a .45 pistol unit. Situated in inspiring Oregon, their Vers 50 silencer is the definition of both durable and reliable.
If you want to effectively suppress your .50 Beowulf or other big bore calibers (e.g., the .45-70), then the Bowers Vers 50 should be at the top of your wish list! This can is a .50 caliber, high-efficiency suppressor designed for use with calibers .510 and smaller, and up to 2,200 fps velocity. It is also suitable for slower rounds that will fit through the bore.
The Vers 50 comes with Bowers’ AIMS™ mount and accepts the Versadapt™ series of thread adapting inserts. In fact, one standard insert is included with your purchase! Moreover, for a minimal upcharge, the Bowers Vers 50 is now available with a stainless steel baffle stack that increases the projectile rating to 2,650 fps! Ya know ya wanna…
