New: Pork Sword Stalker in 8.6 BLK and 375 Raptor

Texas-based Black Collar Arms, the mavericks that brought the world the Pork Sword, has a new offering along the same pattern but in either 8.6 Blackout or .375 Raptor, the new Pork Sword Stalker.

Firing these new suppressor-optimized rounds from a big bore 12-inch barrel that’s purpose-built for hunting and tactical use, the Stalker is billed as being especially handy and capable in tight environments such as in a side-by-side, a cramped deer blind, on foot in tricky terrain, or a tactical situation.

When talking about capability, the Pork Sword Stalker in .375 Raptor uses 1:6.25 twist 5R rifling to deliver 270-grain soft point projectiles with sub-MOA accuracy and over 1,000 ft-lbs. of retained energy onto targets beyond 550 yards away. The 8.6 Blackout, with an even more amazing 1:3 twist, gives another wide range of ballistics depending on the bullet with, for example, a 185-grain Hornady GMX hitting 2,085 fps supersonic while a 300-grain Sierra MatchKing hums along subsonic at just 1,032 fps.

Compact, with a 12-inch 416R stainless barrel and no rear accessory attached, they run just 21.75-inches overall in a pistol format. Weight is under 6 pounds. Black Collar can also build it out as an SBR with a folding stock and applicable tax stamps. They ship with a short M-LOK handguard and Timney Elite Hunter trigger. The barrels are threaded in common 5/8×24 pitches.

Cost? $2,750, starting at, stamps not included. Caliber-matched AB Suppressor Raptor 8 silencer packages are also available if you don’t already have something that will work.
