SALT LAKE CITY, January 17, 2023 – AMTAC, one of the most respected firearm suppressor manufacturers in the world, today announced a new brand identity that reflects the innovation and strength of its products and tunes into one’s “Inner Warrior.” AMTAC’s new look and feel is inspired by Polynesian symbology and traditions. The company is also announcing a new over-barrel CQC rifle suppressor, which is ideal for law enforcement and hunting.
“There is wonderful and powerful symbolism that runs throughout Polynesia,” said Brady MacKay, COO of USDGI, parent company of AMTAC. “Many of us here have deep connections to that area of the world and we wanted to shine light on and honor this history and tradition. Not only do the tribal-inspired designs work beautifully with our product lines, but the names are easy to pronounce and remember and the concepts behind them align with our mission to deliver the highest quality safety equipment on the market today. For example, our 9MM pistol caliber carbine suppressor is named Ku, after the Hawaiian god of war, but that term also means ‘stability,’ which speaks to the solid design, performance and balance inherent to our entire line of suppressors.”
The AMTAC product lines are as follows:
KAHA 300 BLACK OUT SUPPRESSORS: Meaning “strong” or “great.”
AMTAC is proud to introduce this new state-of-the-art suppressor. The KAHA CQC suppressor offers the ideal balance between length, weight, and sound performance. With this suppressor, the added overall length is only 3.7 inches, which delivers better balance and makes it possible to store in police cruisers and be much easier to wield while hunting. KAHA is rated for magnum calibers and designed for 300 Blackout rifles. Noise reduction: up to 28dB.
TAO .22LR RIMFIRE SUPPRESSOR: Meaning “spear.”
The TAO suppressor is a premium rimfire suppressor capable of handling multiple calibers. It is impressive with .22LR but can also be used up to 5.7×28 on a 16″ barrel. Noise reduction: up to 37dB.
KU 9MM PISTOL CALIBER CARBINE SUPPRESSOR: Meaning “god of war” and “stability.”
Designed specifically for Pistol Caliber Carbines, the KU features a unique over-barrel design that adds only 3.7” to the carbine’s length while drastically reducing both sound and recoil. It fits under most handguards for an integrated look and balanced feel. Noise reduction: Up to 30dB.

AMTAC’s flagship over-barrel suppressor, the KOA is designed around a 16” barrel with a carbine-length gas system. The shortest version adds only 3.7” to a rifle’s overall length.
