A tubeless suppressor intended for serious hunting use, the new SilencerCo Harvester EVO is rated for centerfire rounds up to and including .300 Win.

The Harvester EVO, announced Tuesday, picks up where the Harvester 300 left off. Just 6.24 inches long and with a weight of 10.8 ounces, the can is meant to be maneuverable and take up negligible space on long treks, where every inch and ounce matters.

"The most impressive phenomenon of the Harvester EVO is its lightweight nature despite being created from rugged, hard-use materials," said Dewie Vieir,  SilencerCo senior product development specialist. "Weighing just 10.8 ounces, it is constructed of 17-4 heat-treated stainless steel, Inconel, and cobalt 6 with a tubeless design. This gives the EVO an edge over other hunting suppressors."

The Harvester EVO is compatible with all SilencerCo Bravo accessories and ships with both a Bravo 1/2x28 and Bravo 5/8x24 Direct Thread mount. Further, escaping the four-digit suppressor albatross, the EVO has an MSRP of $680.

The use of suppressors while hunting is at an all-time high, with now 40 states allowing the devices to harvest game in the field. They can always be used more, however, as studies show that between 70 and 80 percent of hunters never wear earplugs or earmuffs. In related news, with the looming launch of a revamped eForms site by the ATF later this month, the onerous wait time between filling out a Form 4 and getting a stamp could hopefully get a lot shorter.
