Those who attended SHOT Show 2023 know that Daniel Defense brought a new suppressor, dubbed the Daniel SoundGuard, because it was everywhere. The company always seems to have a big presence at the show, but with encroaching competition from the likes of major players like Smith & Wesson and FN, the focus was squarely on the newest suppressor from the famed rifle manufacturer.

Though the Daniel Defense Wave has been around for several years, the new SoundGuard design is the company's first foray into the high-flow suppressor world aimed at keeping maximum gas out of the shooter's face. The SoundGuard also gets its name from the company's claim that it uses KGM Technology to significantly lower noise levels. While this is a true partnership with KGM, which handles all the welding, it’s still a Daniel Defense suppressor and comes with the famous Daniel Defense lifetime warranty.

This is being marketed toward the AR-15 shooter with three models available: the hard-use SG-556 (.223/5.56), SG-30 (.223 Rem - .300 PRC), and the titanium SG-30Ti (.223 Rem - .300 PRC). 

All suppressors promise to have a rapid attach/detach system using industry-standard HUB 1.375x24 UNS, which provide secure mounting. Along with that secure mount, it also promises to make the new can versatile. Finally, the company promises the combination of the patented baffle-stack design with the proprietary material coating will reduce the firearm's flash signature to “virtually zero.” 

All the models are rated for full-auto fire, with the MSRP at $750 for the SG-556 and SG-30 and around $1,000 for the SG-30Ti.
