Recently, OSS Suppressors now known as HUXWRX was awarded an FBI contract to produce the HUXWRX FLOW 556k for the elite FBI Hostage Rescue Teams (HRTs). The FBI will be taking advantage of HUXWRX’s flow through technology. The design of the suppressor allows for gases to flow out of the front of the suppressor instead of back at the shooter. The FBI’s HRT chose the suppressor after an extensive test and evaluation process. The contract is a 5-year contract valued at $4.9 million dollars.
Below, is the press statement from the FBI awarding HUXWRX the suppressor contract.
US DOJ FBI awards HUXWRX Safety Co. (formerly OSS Suppressors) with the FBI Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) contract for production and delivery of their new 3D-printed FLOW 556k suppressor. The Indefinite Deliverable/Indefinite Quantity Contract is worth $4.9 million to be paid out over a 5-year (1-base year, plus 4 option years) term and is the largest law enforcement suppressor contract to date.
Out of all the submissions that participated in the rigorous FBI Ballistic Research Facility testing, the FLOW 556k finished first in weight, unsuppressed and suppressed flash/spark, sound suppression, gas blowback, and user assessment testing.
HUXWRX Safety Co. is honored to have developed systems utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques like 3D printing. This emerging technology allows for extreme tolerances, better quality control and flash/sound suppression, weight reduction, and improvements in the development cycle. Ultimately, they have created a product that enables production efficiencies unavailable with traditional CNC manufacturing. The 3D-printed FLOW 556k is one of many technologically advanced systems to come from HUXWRX Safety Co.
Currently, the HUXWRX FLOW 556k is only available to military and law enforcement agencies.
