Don’t be deceived by its quiet nature.

The DECEPTION® gives outstanding sound suppression with extreme durability and accuracy. It aggressively does its job and can endure substantial use. Its undeniable toughness, versatility and the ability to withstand adversity make the Deception an essential tool to the serious rifleman.

The DECEPTION is direct-thread on in 5/8 x 24 and is full auto rated on barrels down to 10″ (5.5″ with .300blk). Wrench flats are incorporated to allow easy pin and weld for shorter barrels. The DECEPTION is rated for multiple calibers, and almost every rifle application, including  7.62, 308, .300blk, .243, .260, 6mm, 6.5, 5.56 and .223 on down. Click the tabs below for more information, including pricing, customer reviews and how to order.

Amazing product solid construction and the sound reduction is amazing and the added benefit of recoil reduction makes my 308 a pleasure to shoot all day. Top notch product and will certainly recommend and will purchase others.

It does a fantastic job. I have used this with 7.62, 300, 6.5, 5.56 and .22lr. Very pleased.

I’ve had the Deception 762 Exo for almost 2 years now. Very impressed with the sound (or lack of sound). Have people comment almost every competition or class I go to with the can about how quiet it is. I run it on everything from a bolt gun, to a 10.5” 5.56 SBR. Will definitely be buying from Innovative Arms again.

I've got the Deception 7.62mm on my 300 Blackout SBR AR. This suppressor is very quiet and well made. It has made shooting my 300 Blackout guns much more enjoyable. I would love to purchase another Innovative Arms suppressor for my 9mm guns.

I've owned the Deception since 2015 without any problems. I've put many rounds through it using various optics and have had no problems with accuracy. I have used it on a Socom 16 and M14 with adapters purchased from Innovative Arms. Front sights had to come off when attached to the Socom but no big deal since I only use optics anyway. The Deception reduces noise to a level that I do not need hearing protection and can hear round impact but don't expect "Hollywood" silence unless going subsonic.
