Looked like the recoil was lighter than usual.

No it's not. The method used to attach the suppressor to the barrel was proprietary and somewhat of a novel idea in and of itself.

Here's a pic for those that didn't catch it the first time around.

Looks like it either screws into the receiver or probably the bottom few inches of the barrel after creating threads. Probably used an M1 barrel without fins.

Was this a one time thing or does Bowers plan on selling these?

Do you feel a noticable difference in recoil?

Looks like you were at thr Peidmont, AL shoot last weekend. I was there down on the other end of the line. I missed you shooting the suppressed TSMG. Looks like it works well. That was a really great shoot. Got to fire the water cooled .50 BMG. What a blast.
