For over fifty years,
silencers have influenced stealth combat tactics. Silencers have
been used repeatedly by
snipers armed with rifle silencers, although the most frequent
use of silencers has been with pistols. This book discusses
the historical use of

brings it forward to modern day use of low-signature or suppressed weapons, including
sub-machine guns, by snipers armed with rifle silencers and special operations soldiers.

Review Table of Contents
“Several distinct types of noise of high or low degree, are produced by firearms in operation. Detonation comes first,
followed by the muzzle blast of expanding gases (the joint between revolver cylinders and barrels adds to this), and then
comes the shock wave created by bullet velocity. If the weapon is of the semi or full automatic variety there are also
mechanical noises produced. If these several noises could be silenced or materially reduced, a number of obvious
advantages would be gained, particularly by the military. A sentry or guard can be killed silently with a knife, but it is
difficult to stalk within killing range without the alarm being given. A silenced firearm could do the job from a distance. It
would indeed be helpful on night raids or patrols, and for silently wiping out isolated outposts of the enemy.”
