Our take on the Rugged Oculus:
On first glance at the Oculus, we quickly realized why Rugged is one of the hottest new Suppressor manufacturers in the industry. Just like other Rugged Suppressors, this Suppressor has an extremely detailed outer body. It’s also super easy to take apart including the baffle stacks. This makes cleaning much easier. Probably the coolest feature of the Oculus is being able to break it down into a smaller configuration(modular). It’s super easy to break down to a smaller size. All you have to do is unscrew the front cap, unscrew at the seams located a third of the way down the Suppressor, and screw the front cap back on the smaller configuration.
On the range, we fired in the full configuration, and the shorter configuration. For the test fire, we used a M&P .22 Pistol, and sub-sonic ammo. In the full configuration, there was absolutely no “first round pop” in which Rugged advertises as such. The Oculus was impressively quiet in the full size, and had very little POI shift. In the short configuration, there was a first round pop, and you could tell the Oculus was slightly louder. However, even in the shorter configuration, the Oculus was still impressively quiet.
In summary, in the days of innovation in the Suppressor Industry, the Rugged Oculus takes .22 Suppressors to the next level. Rugged has set the bar high with this one. Now it’s time to see if others follow suit.
