Below, is the product description and specs for the Oppressor Lite.

Product Description

The Strike Industries OPPRESSOR LITE is the little brother to the original SI OPPRESSOR which also aids in redirecting blast and sound. Unlike most other blast shields on the market, the OPPRESSOR family is designed with computer aided flow dynamics to maintain the recoil reduction of SI muzzle devices. The LITE version is designed to be more lightweight than big brother, 3 full ounces lighter. Not only does LITE refer to the reduced weight, the design of the attachment mechanism has been made to be easier and quicker to install when removing without the ratcheting system like big brother. Using the SI patent pending Strike Rapid Engage Mount (SREM) system found on majority of SI muzzle devices and other SI SREM compatible devices, you can easily transfer the OPPRESSOR LITE to the weapon you are currently shooting as long as it has the compatible business end. If you are going for that tucked look, any current SI rail/handguard inner diameter is designed to work with a suppressor up to 1.57” (39.9mm) so you got the green light for the OPPRESSOR LITE as well as any handguard made to clear majority of suppressors on the market.

The OPPRESSOR LITE is made of a steel core with a 6061-T6 aluminum body and is anodized in SI black, red, blue and FDE colors. The OPPRESSOR family is multi-caliber compatible with .223/5.56, .308/7.62 and 9mm calibers. The OPPRESSOR LITE is a no compromise solution for redirecting the gas pressure produced by aggressive brakes and compensators. Advanced internal geometry actively draws the gasses out and thrusts the gasses forward through vents to accomplish linear braking in order to retain more efficiency. The OPPRESSOR LITE can be rapidly installed before transitioning to prone shooting positions, indoor use or to not scare the poop out of the person next to you in a training class setting or on the firing line.

  1. I purchased my Oppressor Lite last week and received a tracking number from you within 24 hrs. However, the shipment has not progressed from “label created” in 5 days! So, has it shipped or not? What’s going on guys?

    • David, I know I’m answer this late. I can’t speak to Strike’s website or shipping issues. Idk, if you received your Oppressor Lite by now or not. I hope you have. Strike Industries has a good customer service from my experience. Hopefully, an email got everything cleared up with them. Let me know what happened and how their customer service was for you.
