The Truth about AAC

Having been at SHOT 2015 and hearing some of the wild rumors and unfounded speculation going around about AAC, I felt I needed to step in, clear the air, and set the record straight.

RUMOR: AAC is going out of business.

FACT: AAC is not going out of business. We are, however, moving to a new facility in Huntsville, Alabama, that will include most of the other companies that make up Remington Outdoor Company. The AAC facility in Lawrenceville, GA will cease production in February. The relocation of equipment and personnel will take place between the cessation of production and early May. We are taking steps to minimize any interruptions in communication and customer service during the transition so that the move is as transparent to our customers as possible. We introduced not one, not two, not three, but four new silencers this year. Would we do that if we were going out of business?

RUMOR: They came in and fired everyone.

FACT: No they didn’t. No employee has been fired from AAC in the last three years. This rumor has been spread ad-nauseam by a mouth-breathing oaf that writes for a blog, the title of which begins with a word that rhymes with “douche”. He’s relaying bad intel, spoon fed to him by former AAC personnel. Consider the source.

RUMOR: They ran off all the creative people.

FACT: Again, no, they didn’t. With the exception of one silencer in the current 2015 catalog, the other 30 or so silencers were designed by personnel that are still drawing a paycheck with AAC at the top.

RUMOR: They are merging AAC with TAPCO.

FACT: Um, no. Why would they do that? This is another one of those “douche about guns” rumors. Again, completely baseless tripe passed on by former AAC personnel and regurgitated by an easily manipulated blogger.

To all of you out there that own AAC products, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patronage. The four products we introduced at SHOT are not the last new products to come from us this year. There are some really interesting new silencers to come that I believe will surprise everyone, and re-establish AAC as the leader in silencer innovation. Please stay tuned!

Thanks for your time,

Mike Smith/AAC

BREAKING NEWS from Florida

As of approximately 30 minutes ago, Florida’s FWC has approved the use of Silencers for hunting in the state, ending a 57 year ban and making Florida the 33rd state to allow Hunting with silencers.

Florida joins Alabama and Georgia who both passed hunting this year. Nicely filling in the South East corner of the map

Well done Florida

Big THANKS goes out to the American Suppressor Association and Buck Holly from #TEAMAAC for all the support and moving this forward

Kendall Jones and AAC

It was our great pleasure to meet up with Kendall Jones last weekend and getting her and Taylor shooting AAC Silencers and 300 Blackout.

You may remember Kendall. Recently she dang near broke the Internet when she was on Safari in Africa and posted pictures on her Facebook page. Recently Kendall, with Taylor’s help, has launched a YouTube Channel where they go on further adventures, including an Alligator hunt and learning Modern Sporting Rifles with AAC. Her YouTube channel can be found HERE

These are two AWESOME young ladies who did an unbelievable job training with Billy Birdzell from Remington from sun up to sun down.

Evolution9 on the cover of SAR

Small Arms Review did a cover story on the Kel-Tec 9mm Integral SBR based off the Sub-2000 made by RASE Industries.

You may remember this rifle being at our booth at the 2014 SHOT Show or the Blog post by TTAG (that included a picture of me with hair, a rare event) some time back. Great fun

“My First Deer”

Kendall used her H&R AAC edition HandiRifle in 300 AAC Blackout to take her first deer. No doubt a hunt she will never forget and we here at AAC are very proud we could be a small part of it.

Well done Kendall, first of many no doubt :)

Hog hunting with Aaron

Here is a video we shot some weeks back. Patrick is a great guy and it was a pleasure for Buck and I to take him out.

We met Aaron at the 2014 NRA Show in Indianapolis. After hearing his amazing story, we were honored to facilitate his first hunt. Firearms enthusiasts, and folks with a passion for hunting come from all walks of life. Aaron proved to us that nothing can keep a determined hunter down. It was our pleasure to provide Aaron with the equipment to become a certified slayer of swine!

New Shirts up and available

Who don’t love our Life Style line?!

First up is the shirt that never was. You may have seen me at Events or in videos wearing the infamous “Make Love Loudly/Make War Silently” or as we refer to it the “MLL” shirt. One of my personal favorite designs and unless you were at the NRA Annual Meeting this year, you never had a chance to get one.


Want to show your AAC Pride, “Big X” is your shirt. The AAC “Crossed Guns” logo on the front and the web site on the back.


Also available again, after a limited July 4th release that went out quickly, the “Liberty” shirt. (Another personal favorite of mine)
