CODY, WY – The American Suppressor Association (ASA), the unified voice of the suppressor community, is pleased to announce that Gunwerks has signed on as a Tier 3 sponsor of ASA for 2019. James Christiansen, COO for Gunwerks, was also unanimously elected to the ASA Board earlier this month. Headquartered in Cody, Wyoming, Gunwerks is a manufacturer and provider of premium long range hunting rifles, optics, shooting systems, training, and suppressors.

“The team at Gunwerks is extremely passionate about firearm silencers and now with our entrance to the silencer market our partnership with ASA is even more important”, said James Christiansen. “Our silencer rights as hunters and shooting enthusiasts are paramount to the long term success and growth of our industry and the ASA is critical to the protection and expansion of our rights.”

In January of this year, Gunwerks leapt into the suppressor market with the introduction of two new suppressor models optimized for long range hunting rifles and calibers. The Gunwerks 6IX Suppressor is a compact, ultralight model ideal for backcountry hunting and lower profile carry where minimizing weight and bulk are key. The 8IGHT Suppressor from Gunwerks is slightly larger in length and volume for maximum sound suppression in a still manageable package.

“We are very excited to announce our new partnership with Gunwerks,” said Knox Williams, President and Executive Director of ASA. “As an established brand in the hunting world, Gunwerks is in a tremendous position to help more hunters protect their hearing while in the field. We look forward to working together to advance our pro-suppressor agenda nationwide and to help make hearing loss a thing of the past!”



The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.

The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, 3 states have legalized suppressor ownership and 18 states have legalized suppressor hunting. Much of this would not have happened without your support.
