SilencerCo Hybrid 46M

Versatility and flexibility are something we often seek as consumers. Multi-role products allow us to save money and space. This demand for modularity has crept into the firearms industry. In the past, firearm enthusiasts had to purchase multiple suppressors if they wanted to reduce decibels on a variety of firearms and calibers. SilencerCo has solved this problem set with the Hybrid 46M. Now you can purchase one multi-role suppressor to cover the broad spectrum of calibers from 5.56mm to 338 LM. This can is an excellent option for someone’s first suppressor as you can run it on practically any host.

SilencerCo Suppressors, the Omega™ 9K and Omega45K are excptionally versatile suppressors. They are the smallest, lightest, and quitest in their classes.

Modularity

The Hybrid 46M can be utilized in two lengths. The 5.78-inch configuration is perfect for pistols, while the longer 7.72-inch version is at home on long guns. It comes with a Charlie 46 end cap installed, allowing any calibers under 0.46 inches to pass through. Additionally, a .30-caliber end cap comes in the box for greater decibel reduction on smaller calibers.

Mounts

The SilencerCo Charlie ASR Mount is compatible with all ASR muzzle devices. This is the way to go for rifles when quick installation and removal are desired. Additional mounting solutions are sold separately to accommodate whatever threaded barrel platform you may have. Charlie Direct Thread Mounts are available in a wide variety of thread pitches. The Charlie Piston Mount allows you to pair the Hybrid 46M with semi-auto pistols. Lastly, a tri-lug option is available if that is your jam.

Testing

I ran the SilencerCo Hybrid 46M on various hosts, including a Stribog SP9A3, multiple AR-15s in assorted calibers, AR-10 in 8.6 Blackout and a bolt gun chambered in 6.5C. Unfortunately, I could not utilize it on any traditional semi-auto pistols due to me not having the Charlie Piston Mount. Testing parameters included sustained and rapid fire with an evaluation period of 1000 plus rounds.

Final Thoughts

First, I want to cover who I envision as the ideal user of the Hybrid 46M. I see this suppressor catching the attention of a first-time suppressor buyer with a collection of firearms that includes large bore rifles and .45 caliber pistols. Being able to swap length configurations and end caps truly makes this suppressor a jack of all trades.

Construction is super robust, and it handled short-barreled ARs with ease. It didn’t show any signs of baffle erosion. I didn’t expect there to be any – due to its full auto rating. Rapid fire testing did get the suppressor hot enough to cause the finish to smoke, discolor and blister in a few areas. This is very common with suppressors when subjected to extreme heat. I don’t have a fancy decibel meter, but it appeared to be within the hearing safe range of under 140 dB in the long configuration on everything I tested it on. The ASR mount locked up solid on all the muzzle devices, including the single port brake, with no concentricity issues. Switching to the direct thread mount was a breeze using the included spanner wrenches.

SilencerCo crushed it with this suppressor, which I strongly recommend due to its modularity and versatility. Normally modularity comes with some significant tradeoffs, but in the case of the Hybrid 46M, I didn’t feel like I was sacrificing anything.
