North Carolina's Angstadt Arms on Tuesday announced a new baffleless ISR and suppressed barrel platform. 

The new and innovative Vanquish system features a ported barrel design that alleviates the need for traditional baffles, while – much like vaunted integrally suppressed sub guns like the HK MP5SD – allowing standard velocity 115-grain 9mm ammo to be subsonic with no first-round pop. 

Compare the Vanquish Baffleless Suppressor in both long and short configurations running Remington 115-grain and Winchester 147-grain 9mm loads, both dry and wet, in the below video. The company says they are achieving an average reduction at the muzzle of 40 dB. 



Plus, as Angstadt points out, one cannot have a baffle strike if one does not have a baffle to strike. Further, with no baffles, maintenance and cleanup is a snap. 

Angstadt plans to market the Vanquish series across several different offerings, including an all-up rifle, a two-stamp factory SBR, uppers, and suppressed barrels that are compatible with any straight blowback AR9, such as the UDP9

The Vanquish rifle, besides the suppressor system, will ship with an EMT-9 trigger, an ambidextrous Radian Raptor charging handle, and a Talon safety selector, as well as a BCM vertical foregrip.
