CQC® 1 Suppressor

The CQC® 1 was designed with HRT, ERT, SWAT, and military personnel to provide them with a compact and lightweight unit. It is available to civilian shooters as well, although many choose the CQC ELITE model for additional sound suppression.

A CQC Brake and Cover Cap are included with each CQC 1.

Various Cerakote® color choices are available.

All models have 100% repeatability. Horizontal POI shift is minimized by the internal design.

6 reviews for CQC® 1 Suppressor

  1. Robert G.

    This was my first 5.56 suppressor and by far my favorite. It was also my first Elite Iron purchase and made me a true follower. Elite Iron makes phenomenal products and at a great price. It is my quietest 5.56 suppressor and definitely has me wanting the CQC Elite. I use this suppressor for general shooting and with barrels as short as 11.5″. I primarily use this on 16″ and longer barrels for prairie dog hunting. This is where this suppressor truly shines. I feel it really enhances the accuracy of my rifles and it shows during prairie dog hunting. I have taken shots out to 400-500 with no problem. I have had it since 2016 and it still looks brand new!

    This is an amazing suppressor, especially for the compact size. As a dealer I really appreciate working with Elite Iron. Customer service is incredible. They are knowledgeable about their products and will take the time to answer all your questions.

    I have used the suppressor for years as a member of a law enforcement tactical team. It is extremely durable and has minimal shift and point of impact.

  4. Matthew

    Great addition to my AR. I have a 16″ heavy barrel 1:9 and love to shoot supersonic rounds without hearing protection. Really works well bringing down the noise. I had this originally on a Sig 556, and subsonic rounds stabilized fine. This CQC1 suppressor was crazy quiet then. No signs of corrosion and over 6 years old.

  5. Cody Bradley

    This is an amazing can. I run it on 6×45 down to 17 hornet and it runs great. Built like a tank and shows no signs of wear after 3 years. Elite Iron customer service is second to none.

  6. Ben in Wyoming

    Amazing sound and recoil reduction on 10.5″ 223. Just don’t shoot the brake without hearing protection! Like all other Elite Iron products, this is a quality, durable product. Mine is more than 5 years old and has no signs of wear or corrosion.
