LEAD TIME: Expect approximately 6 to 8 months from order to delivery. SBDs are custom built just for you. The 2021 supply chain, from raw materials to machine tools to finishing services like nitride, has been unpredictable and slower than usual. We are working on bringing the lead time down to the point where we eventually have SBDs in-stock, but if you’re reading this message please understand that we currently don’t make it ’till you order it, and it is likely to take 6 to 8 months.
SBDs ARE NFA ITEMS: We will need a copy of your dealer’s SOT and FFL licenses in order to transfer your SBD from us to them so they can perform the Form 4 for transfer to you. Please have them email this info to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or, in the “Order Notes” section during checkout, please let us know what dealer you’ll be using and we’ll call them up and request their licenses.
(At checkout you’ll have the option to pay the total up-front or to pay a 50% deposit with two, 25% payments due at future dates. The total is the same either way, and there is no interest or credit check or anything associated with the payment plan option.)
We build SBDs in three flavors: Rifle, Modular SBR, and Modular Integral Pistol
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 14 oz) or in a custom-inletted Grayboe Ridgeback stock with Grayboe DBM (~8 lbs 14 oz). The SBD rifle is an insanely quiet gun that’s fully-suppressed within the length of a standard, 16-inch rifle! Chambered in 300 Blackout, .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, or 375 Raptor.
Modular SBR: Available only in 300 Blackout. 6.5-inch 1:5 twist barrel in our Pork Sword Chassis with folding Stock Option. 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 two-stamp gun (one Form 4 for the SBR, one Form 4 for the silencer). The SBD Modular SBR 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 Integral Pistol: Available only in 300 Blackout. 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). 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.
On a B&K 2209 decibel meter shooting at AB Suppressor’s test range, a loud hand clap three feet from the meter registered at 128.2 dB. The SBD 308 firing supersonic ammunition with the dB meter three feet to the left of the muzzle metered at 129.6 dB. It’s INSANELY quiet!
Jeremy, Black Collar Arms Co-Owner, gives an overview of the SBD line and puts a few rounds downrange:
Video from when we shot the first production prototype!…
Integrally suppressed rifles have a reputation for poor (sometimes extremely poor) accuracy. Not so with the SBD! We expect to see approximately 1 MOA, five-shot groups at 100 yards with good factory ammo. Subsonic ammunition is more variable and the firearm may show a stronger preference for one load or another, but we still expect 1.5 MOA to 3 MOA groups depending on ammo choice. Regardless of what rifle you’re shooting, we always suggest firing accuracy groups with a sampling of different bullet weights, styles, and ammo brands to hone in on what your rifle shoots best.
Here are some typical, 5-shot groups from the SBD 308 shot at 100 yards with various types of ammunition (note that many manufacturers use 3-round groups; if we did that the SBD would be well sub-MOA much of the time):
