Full disclosure: I’m one of the owners of Black Collar Arms, so I’ll never review any of our products. But I’m not above sharing our press releases! Though, I gotta say, the SBD💨 line is so freakin’ cool there’s no way I wouldn’t publish the following press release regardless:
Black Collar Arms SBD💨
Austin, TX (December, 2021) — The culmination of extensive testing and development, Black Collar Arms is thrilled to announce the launch of our SBD💨 line of integrally suppressed firearms. In partnership with AB Suppressor we have created a compact, lightweight, accurate, and highly capable system that is among the quietest centerfire rifle caliber setups ever made.
Black Collar Arms currently builds SBDs in three flavors: Rifle, Modular Integral Pistol, and Modular SBR.
Rifle: 16.25-inch legal length with permanent, all-titanium, integral suppressor made by AB Suppressor (one-stamp gun). Available in our Pork Sword Chassis with folding Stock Option and SD Handguard (~6 lbs 13 oz) or in a custom-inletted Grayboe Ridgeback stock with Grayboe DBM (~8 lbs 6 oz). The SBD rifle is an insanely quiet gun that’s fully suppressed within the length of a standard, 16-inch rifle, and it’s only 27 inches long with its Stock Option folded! Chambered in 300 Blackout, .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, or 375 Raptor.
Modular Integral Pistol: Available only in 300 Blackout. A 6.5-inch 1:5 twist barrel in our Pork Sword Chassis, ready to accept the Picatinny rail-compatible pistol brace of your choosing (or file a Form 1 to SBR it and pick up a Stock Option after approval). Removable AB Suppressor Raptor 7.62 silencer with 5-inch reflex mount and 5/8×24″ flush mount, available with either 6 baffles or 8 baffles. This is a one-stamp gun (standard transfer on the pistol, one Form 4 for the silencer). In a 5.0-pound package, the SBD Modular Integral Pistol provides all the badass looks and much of the sound suppression performance of an integrally suppressed firearm, but the silencer is removable! Now you can have your integral cake but use it on other firearms as well.
Modular SBR: Just like the Modular Integral Pistol, but it ships from Black Collar as a factory SBR with our folding Stock Option already mounted. This is a two-stamp gun (one Form 4 for the SBR, one for the silencer).
SBDs are custom built to order on Black Collar Arms’ Pork Sword Custom Actions (a version of the fantastic Bighorn Origin) with uniquely purpose-built, match-grade barrels. While integrally suppressed firearms have historically earned a reputation for excessive weight and poor accuracy, neither is the case with the SBD. In fact, we have achieved the same length, weight, and accuracy of a high quality, unsuppressed 16-inch rifle all with some of the most effective sound suppression in the world built right in.
Note to customers and potential customers who have been keeping an eye on us, waiting patiently for our Pork Sword Chassis and Stock Options to return to in-stock status: 2021 has been a whirlwind, and as we complete the move into a new facility we’re quickly getting caught up thanks, in part, to increased production capacity coming online. We will satisfy any backorders and wait-list customers first, and this process is built into the custom-made SBD lead time stated on our site. In early 2022 we will be expanding our customer service team to better serve our customers via email and phone. Black Collar originally earned a stellar reputation for thorough responsiveness only to screw that up over the last year amid incredible supply chain complications and general “growing pains.” We’re fixing this and we thank all of our amazing customers for their patience of late.
