All CGS rifle silencers are based on what we call “Hyperion VCD Technology”. Hyperion Tech is a signature suppression system developed internally by CGS Group LLC designed to address multiple issues that have plagued rifle silencers in various ways for the past 130 years. The patented and patent pending features incorporated into CGS rifle silencers utilizing Hyperion Technology are the current state of the art for signature suppressors and there is nothing on the horizon that will surpass it any time soon.
1) The absolute best supersonic sound suppression available by a significant margin, all while not sacrificing subsonic sound suppression or blowback reduction. Before you stop reading, that is not marketing speak, that is a verifiable fact (see PewScience note below).
2) Function Changing Front Caps completely change the function of the silencer as desired by the end user. The end user can make the CGS Hyperion a “traditional” type silencer by using the Solid Front Cap (included) which is ideal for something like a bolt gun or most semi auto and select fire hosts, or the end user can make the CGS Hyperion a “flow bypass” type silencer simply by removing the existing front cap with a 7/8” wrench and replacing it with the Vented Front Cap (purchased separately). The Vented Front Cap allows excess gas within the suppressor to vent to atmosphere without further influencing the host weapon system and further preventing toxic gasses from being blown back at the shooter. In the future, different front caps will be made available such as those with longer central flash hider to improve flash elimination, and those with varying vent size and quantity, and those with flash hiding features for each peripheral vent. While “flow bypass” type silencers are nothing new, having been around since 1909 and in their current form since 1927, the convertible and adjustable function concept in CGS rifle silencers certainly takes suppressor capability to the next level and was never attempted or perfected until now. It is the best of both worlds in one simple package.
3) No first round pop.
4) Additive Manufactured (3D Printed) Core with a proprietary internal Hexagonal Boron Nitride coating to prevent the buildup of fouling an and external black DLC coating. AM allows for the elimination of failure points such as welds or machining errors and is stronger than that billet material that silencer parts are commonly machined out of, and allows for excellent concentricity throughout the suppressor.
5) CGS rifle silencers manufactured via AM use a proprietary heat treatment process which vastly improves strength of the silencer core compared to the standard heat treatment used by other manufacturers.
6) All 7.62mm CGS rifle silencers come by default with a 5/8×24 direct thread mount compatible with the SIG Sauer 25 deg taper barrel shoulder. Barrels with 90 deg shoulders must have a minimum diameter of .735” at the shoulder, however barrels under .735” diameter at the shoulder can use the CGS Hyperion Thread Adapter (sold separately) which will turn a 90 deg barrel shoulder into a 25 deg barrel shoulder and is compatible with all barrel diameters. This gives the user the retention benefit of the taper shoulder and will also allow the use of skinny barrels utilizing muzzle shoulders such as the FN SCAR 17. The Hyperion Thread Adapter is also offered in 1/2×28.

We’ve been anticipating the Hyperion suppressor from CGS Group for awhile and managed to get our hands on one recently. CGS Group is located in Artesia, New Mexico and also known for the design & manufacture of the CGS PANDORA™ firing device. The Hyperion suppressor we have is a 0.264″/6.5mm bore that attaches via 5/8″ x 24 direct thread. We wasted no time putting the suppressor on our host rifle. The first thing we wanted to test was “host rifle accuracy”.
Host rifle accuracy is a very important attribute to have in a suppressor used on precision rifles. The suppressor must maintain, or increase the accuracy of the host. We record results using the suppressor with a proven rifle & ammunition. This allows us to determine that the suppressor and mounting system maintain the rifles accuracy potential. Below is a 5 round group shot at 100 yards with the CGS Hyperion suppressor attached to our Shorty 6.5mm.
Host rifle accuracy test result
Our host rifle is a DMR Shorty 6.5 Creedmoor with; 18″ Bartlein barrel, Trigger Tech trigger, Ultimatum Precision U300 receiver and XLR Industries Carbon chassis. The ammunition I’m shooting is a hand load we developed and proven to consistently shoot 0.5 MOA at 100 yards. The CGS Group Hyperion performed very well in our host rifle accuracy test and we found its suppression performance to be excellent. CGS is currently in the process of manufacturing a run of Hyperion suppressors and we suggest contacting them about getting one.

On a 22" bolt gun firing supersonic 6.5 Creedmoor the Hyperion's even quieter than some other silencers firing subsonic Blackout through an 8" bolt gun: CGS Hyperion 6.5CM Supersonic PewScienceand Q Half Nelson 300 BLK Subsonic PewScience
And it's very nearly the same suppression rating as the Energetic Armament Vox S with a WIPE 300 BLK Subsonic PewScienceand Hyperion's still quieter at the ear.
It's also quieter firing supersonic 6.5 Creedmoor on a 22" bolt gun than shooting subsonic 9mm through the CGS MOD 9 on an HK P30L: CGS MOD 9 9mm Subsonic PewScience
The additive manufacturing process we use makes our rifle silencers far stronger than other comparative rifle silencers for a few reasons. Our manufacturing process creates parts with even higher strength and hardness than billet or forgings or castings or MIM, and does so with increased material density. There are no welds so there are no welds to fail and no welds to warp causing concentricity problems along the length of the silencer. This eliminates welding issues such as welds breaking and their byproducts such as warping, entirely. The monolithic structure and lack of welds make CGS rifle silencers very strong and eliminates failures, concentricity problems, and QC issues from welds. Even if the weld looks perfectly silver on the exterior you can easily have something that looks fine on the outside but the weld won’t penetrate properly for a number of reasons such as electrical problems within the machine itself, operator error, contamination, etc, so it’ll be super weak and it won’t be caught until the weld failure occurs in the end users hands as their using it. That applies to all materials, not just titanium, and failures like that are part of why CGS no longer gets silencers welded by another silencer company.
The Hyperion VCD design itself makes the silencer stronger than any other comparative silencer by better controlling heat and pressure to prevent hot spots from forming. The first chamber is immediately vented and gas is allowed to flow around the first core and is then reintroduced to the main flow further down stream and this also helps reduce thermal signature. Simplicity in design eliminates small, complex cavities and other undesirable features. The titanium silencers also have a proprietary heat treatment applied which further increases strength and hardness. They're internally coated with hexagonal boron nitride which decreases friction, increases surface hardness, and prevents fouling from sticking in the first place which eliminates the need to clean because fouling can't easily stick to internal geometry, though they still could be cleaned if ever required. The internal coating also limits/eliminates titanium white sparking depending on cartridge and barrel length. Titanium white sparking is a separate thing from flash and can't be controlled with a flash hider. The exterior is coated with black DLC. They're also the only dual function silencers available that can be converted simply by changing out the front cap with a 7/8" wrench. This allows you to have a traditional type silencer and a flow bypass type silencer all in one simple package. With future front cap releases it'll also be adjustable across the entire spectrum of sound, flash, and gas reduction just by swapping out the front cap. No longer do you have to live with just one permanent setting on a silencer. The Hyperion has a 5/8x24 direct thread mount with a SIG 25 deg taper already machined into it. The Helios QD is basically a short Hyperion with a 1.375x24 rear mount interface so the mount type can be changed out. Both front caps and rear caps are retained with shallow taper joints which helps with concentricity and cap retention as it has more grip than a square shoulder. This also makes it future proof so regardless of when new front or rear caps are made they'll always be concentric to the silencer bore.
As an example of another benefit of the unique CGS design, here's an old uncoated Hyperion which was torture tested in a very short amount of time on an 18" AR10 to a round count of 12,800rds of 260 Remington. Note that if this older silencer was coated with hexagonal boron nitride it wouldn't contain that fouling which is shown in this uncoated cutaway, and also note the newer DMLS models are even stronger and more durable than this was: Link
CGS rifle silencers are also some of the very few that don't sacrifice subsonic performance to achieve supersonic performance, it excels at both without compromise. Usually rifle silencers will either be good at supersonic and mediocre at subsonic, or good at subsonic and mediocre at supersonic. This can be seen with SIG and Q silencers where they're good at subsonic suppression but don't perform with supersonic ammo anywhere near as well. Since 99% of strikes occur on the front cap, since we don't use any welds in our silencers, and since our DMLS process creates a superior product in every meaningful way there's nothing that's going to need repairing other than on extremely rare occasion the front cap which is easily sent in the mail. In over three or four years no DMLS rifle silencers have been returned for repair from military, government, or commercial customers or consultants because the root of the primary problems are eliminated. Take the Helios QD series as an example which is a 5.56 silencer but the bore is .355" in diameter tapering larger going forward to .375. This eliminates strikes from unstable projectiles when fired out of super short barrels such as the 5.5" Maxim PDX. This is the end result of the Helios QD on a Maxim 5.5" 5.56 PDX after it was put through two SOCOM firing tables, make sure to read the caption and comments for further details: Link
The CGS Hyperion was originally built for an 18" 260 Remington AR10 and a 6.75" 300 Blackout machine gun, it wasn't made for bolt guns. Even though it wasn't built for bolt guns it excels at long range precision while also providing additional recoil reduction compared to traditional silencer types. All CGS rifle silencers have symmetrical blast chambers, making each model excellent for long range precision. Having a symmetrical blast chamber is a prerequisite for a silencer to be considered a proper long range rifle silencer. Some silencers such as those with asymmetrical blast chambers can have accuracy/consistency/first shot/POI issues with long range precision but it varies. The Hyperion has a symmetrical blast chamber and also at the exit and the recombination region which eliminates the potential for those issues to even arise, so long range precision is good to go as you can also see in the below pictures. All long range precision rifle silencers will have a symmetrical blast chamber and those that are advertised as such which don’t, should. The trade off is that notching out all the baffles increases sound reduction at the very likely cost of long range precision accuracy/consistency/etc to some degree. As you’ve probably already seen the Hyperion is the quietest silencer PewScience has tested. If it was to be made even quieter it’s as simple as notching out all the baffles. Same thing with the Helios QD and our other rifle silencers. Helios QD was originally made for the M249 SAW, MK46, and variants and 10.3", 10.4", and 10.5" 5.56 select fire carbines and compared to other silencers the CGS models excel and flash hiding as well and in the future additional front caps will be offered with further enhanced flash hiding capability as well as for the vented front caps which will have a flash hider for each peripheral vent for as close to complete signature reduction as is possible. All CGS rifle silencers standard front caps have a micro flash hider built into the 7/8" hex feature. Here are some precision and POI shift pics: Pic 1, Pic 2, Pic 3
The Hyperion VCD technology is also used in our GPMG 762 silencer made for the M240, MAG 58, MK48, etc as well as belt fed 338 Norma Magnum machine guns. Here's 1259rds fired through one on an M240: YouTube Link
The effectiveness of this technology can also be seen plainly in the Helios QD. It's nearly 2" shorter than a Thunderbeast Ultra 9 but it's very nearly the same suppression level and the Helios QD is just as capable of a precision long range rifle silencer as an Ultra 9, if not more so: CGS Helios 308 PewScienceand TBAC Ultra 9 308 PewScience
An old Hyperion variant:
And here's a short write up I did before for the MOD 9s:
To clarify some things for everyone, the Kraken and MOD 9 in both fullsize and SK size were designed to conform to SOF requirements/needs/wants for a part of the Ministry of Defence. That's where the MoD in the MOD 9 name comes from. They're purpose built for being the best at doing what the original user needed them to do in their intended applications. Same goes for most everything we make besides the Nautilus 45 and rimfire stuff, some features of which were derived from those other projects for the civilian market. The MOD 9 has a stainless steel blast baffle, and anodized 7075 T6 aluminum is used on the forward baffles for better balance on a handgun as you mentioned, and also for increased sound performance. By using anodized aluminum in the front end we're able to leave additional material on the baffle which increases sound reduction without increasing weight. If we were to make those baffles out of stainless steel and left all of that material on them to maintain the sound performance then it'd be way too heavy for it's intended use and balance would be off. If we made those baffles out of stainless steel and thinned them out and removed features to save some weight then we'd lose sound reduction. Everything is a trade off, even materials, and in the case of the MOD 9 when compared to a 100% stainless baffle stack all you lose is three extra cleaning methods on the forward baffles and get less full auto capability. And if you don't own a machine gun then at that point you're just losing three cleaning methods. Many people don't want to use the dip either since it can be dangerous, so that leaves you with ultrasonic and pin tumbling as the only thing you're losing.
If you don't want to use a soda blaster, then before using the silencer you can also coat the baffles in Bore Butter or welding anti spatter or a similar viscous nontoxic product and it'll make cleaning easier and a lot of the fouling will wipe off. All you have to do is knock off the chunks anyway, they don't need to be and shouldn't be perfectly clean. People often clean them too much and/or at intervals that are unnecessarily frequent. The anodized 7075 T6 aluminum used in the forward baffles is more than durable enough for multiple lifetimes. There's nothing wrong with your bore apertures and it's completely normal. Durability is not an issue at all.
Different materials have different uses, and since the MOD 9s weren't made for extensive full auto use there's zero reason to use stainless steel in them where it isn't necessary for their intended applications. While anodized 7075 T6 aluminum forward baffles aren't ideal for every single application (extended machine gun use) they're certainly ideal for most. The materials are chosen and used where they're used for very good reasons. So then a person just has to figure out whether they really care about having two extra cleaning methods or not, but people need to be realistic with themselves about whether having two extra cleaning methods is really worth losing sound reduction, better balance, and lighter weight. Some care, some don't. Some people want modularity, but it's also important to keep in mind that most people leave the silencer in one configuration or another and then leave it on a host and don't mess with the length change feature ever again, especially once the person starts buying more silencers. That doesn't apply to everyone, but it applies to most people. The original user didn't want a modular length feature, so MOD 9s aren't modular.
Long story short, the MOD 9, the materials used, and where the materials are used are more than adequate for most everyone and their uses, with exception being those people that really need/want the two extra cleaning methods while understanding the trade off, people that want a silencer for extensive machine gun use, or people that want and will use a modular feature. In the case of the Obsidian you can remove the front cap with the piston and it's compatible with Silencerco pistons, but that's not something most people will want to do long term anyway since the Silencerco pistons all have Osprey orientation slots which leak gas back at the shooter because of the imperfect O-Ring seal.
Paraphrasing Derek Smith of AAC, Silencershop, Gemtech, and SIG, after decades of aluminum silencers the only thing that's wrong with them is the internet.
The CGS Three Lug Mount is a unique design from others in the industry for a few reasons. The lug seating surface that the male lugs of the three lug adapter shoulder on are machined in a way that makes them perfectly perpendicular to the bore line. Normally three lug mounts are machined in those areas using an endmill and on occasion during machining that end mill can slip into or out of it's collet, meaning that one or two of the three lug seating surfaces will be on a different plane which causes a lack of perpendicularity which can cause a baffle or endcap strike. Our three lug mount eliminates the potential for machining errors which would lead to baffle or endcap strikes. It's also coated with S-Line which is the same thing we internally coat our rifle silencers with. It's super slick and a lot of the fouling wipes right off because it can't stick well in the first place. It also has a tight fit within the inner piston cage so that fouling won't be able to accumulate as much so when you want to go back and use it as a piston set up on a handgun the spokes won't have as much trouble getting through caked up fouling to get into battery with the spoke lock up area. You can see this as the mid band on the exterior of the three lug mount housing, and the design releases the gas from firing a round a bit further forward than some other designs. This is in contrast to other silencer three lug mounts which use just a piston and a spring with a rear cap that leaves a lot of open area where fouling can get caked on, particularly where the piston locks up and where it travels. Ours is a three piece design so that you can disassemble it with the same tool you'd use to disassemble the silencers front cap, allowing the end user to easily clean the system and replace O-rings when needed. On the exterior surface you have a 1" hex feature so you can easily install and tighten it to your silencer using a 1" wrench. The three lug whole design is made of nitrided stainless steel so it is very strong and has no issues with abuse.
The CGS Fixed Barrel Spacer can be used on fixed barrel hosts where you don't want to use a three lug mount, one such case may be when you want to rest the silencer on a surface during shooting for whatever reason, or if you want a lighter set up. It just replaces the spring in the assembly and when you screw the rear cap back on you'll notice the rear cap sticks out slightly more than it does when the spring is installed, this is to let the user know that the fixed barrel spacer is installed instead of the spring. The fixed spacer has six vent slots and twelve spokes engagements which means those slots can sit over the vents in the piston or they can cover them up. This may help with sound of first round pop on some host and ammo configurations, it's up to the user to experiment with it and see which they prefer for their set up. It's made of stainless steel instead of aluminum because you'll occasionally see some aluminum ones from other manufacturers which start to mushroom from the force of firing, our stainless steel spacer eliminates that issue. It's important to note that some manufacturers will offer "direct thread adapters" instead of, or in addition to their fixed barrel spacers. As an example of why you should always use fixed barrel spacers in combination with pistons instead of using direct thread adapters, note that a direct thread adapter doesn't engage with anything in the silencer and is just a simply shouldering on the silencer, while a piston and fixed barrel spacer combined engage inside the silencer where the spokes lock in rotationally. This means that when you use a direct thread adapter when you go to remove the silencer from the host firearm a lot of the time the direct thread adapter will stay on the barrel while coming unscrewed from the silencer, which is bad especially if your silencer was installed under a rail and now your only way to get that direct thread adapter off the barrel would then be to remove the rail so you can get at the stuck direct thread adapter. Where the piston paired with the fixed barrel spacer shines is that regardless of which direction you turn the silencer, the piston assembly is rotationally locked in place so the silencer will always come of the barrel as one complete unit without leaving anything behind.
