PWS to attend the meeting

Primary Weapons Systems will have the full line of BDE suppressors on the range for the first time, as well as various rifles and pistols for attendees to shoot and enjoy.

PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) will showcase the BDE® (Bravo Delta Echo) line of modular suppressors with caliber-specific options for 22 LR, 9mm Luger, 5.56 x 45mm and 7.62 x 51mm at the range from Clinton, South Carolina. PWS will also have multiple rifles and pistols with the tried and true long-stroke piston system. Attendees are encouraged to see these products firsthand at the event which features 17 live-fire shooting bays, 2 clay ranges, a 1000-yard shooting range, a mile-long shooting range and much more. The event brings together the firearms community, the media and the public from March 24-25.he at Clinton’s home plantation.

The BDE line of suppressors began in 2022 with an original 7.62 x 51mm offering: the BDE762. The additions 2023 BDE9 and BDE556 are also made of titanium and are 3D printed. These suppressors are lighter and quieter. An exterior design dissipates heat and mirage regardless of the number of rounds. Tapered threading and symmetrical baffles allow for modality and improve accuracy. All models ship now and are available to purchase through select retailers and directly from PWS at

“We are excited to have the full line of BDEs in front of so many shooters,” said Director of Sales Ben Peters. “It’s hard to see how much light titanium improves the shooting experience unless you actually have our suppressors on a rifle and can reduce the range of rounds. We’ve put a lot of pressure on the team to get a full line up and running. Now that we have multiple solutions for all shooting applications and are shipping every SKU, we can really help anyone looking for a silencer.”

Long-stroke piston-driven tops and full-firearms within the MK1 series will also be on display. New for 2023 is the MK1 Compound line of firearms, which uses the MK1 MOD 2-M lower receiver and the MK1 MOD 1-M upper.
