Griffin Armament – Revolution MOD3 Silencer Series

Griffin Armament dishes details on their versatile new pistol cans

Griffin Armaments’ Revolution Silencer Series brings new to market features and versatility in the pistol silencer class.  The Mod 3 Revolution Series silencers are now rated for 7.62×39, 300 BLK supersonic, and 5.56mm for hunting applications.

“We saw the market trending In our direction on our modular silencer concept and we thought it was time to kick it up a notch and get back on top of the dog pile. So we decided to re-engineer the product and improve it with a lot of versatility and some high pressure caliber application.” -Austin, Lead engineer and primary owner of Griffin stated. He continued, “With the HPA losing steam, and silencers continuing to have a tax stamp associated, we wanted to give the customers more usability in the product. Ultimately it would be great if the HPA were to pass in some form, but it doesn’t like it will anytime soon.  I think consumers are going to be putting their money into versatile products and we are happy to provide those for them.”

The Mod 3 Revolution Series silencers also now support the Griffin Taper Mount Muzzle Devices for hunting application.

In closing, Austin stated,

“I feel these silencers are great for people who want to buy something fun like a pistol silencer but who might want it to do double duty with centerfire and rimfire hunting applications.  There’s more to shooting than staying on the range and dumping magazines and these products cater to the practical outdoorsman just as much as the recreational shooter.  More states are hunting legal than ever before and it’s a great time to protect your hearing while enjoying one of America’s oldest traditions.”

“Make Silencers Great Again” Promotion from Griffin Armament

If you are just waiting for HPA to pass before picking up a silencer, you may be in for some disappointment. HPA hardly a slam dunk and even if it does become law, it could be a long time before it takes effect. Worst of all, the suppressor market is going to be like the wild, wild west if it passes with high demand, high prices, and fly by night operations popping up all over the place. The long and the short of it is, if you want a silencer… buy from an established manufacturer like Griffin Armament and now is the time to act.

Griffin Armament is rolling out a very cool promotion where they will basically give you your $200 tax fees back and they are calling it the “Make Silencers Great Again” promotion. Every Griffin Armament suppressor (rimfire excluded) will now ship with $200 worth of store credit at Griffin Armament’s website. That means you can buy a can and then get the muzzle devices needed to set up a few more rifles for free.

From Griffin Armament:

Sales are down unnecessarily, said Evan Green business development manager at Griffin Armament.  “When the markets have been rallying and jobs are being produced, consumer misunderstanding of the legislative process and the Hearing Protection Act, is hurting an otherwise stable industry.  Many people who want to buy are sitting on discretionary spending in the hopes that HPA will soon pass. The entire industry has come to a very similar conclusion that it will be quite a while until HPA is able to pass if at all despite almost unanimous support.  People not buying right now is only further delaying them from enjoying silencers.  It just doesn’t make any sense and this shouldn’t have happened.

Unfortunately a lot of misinformation was flying around and nobody in the industry was trying to educate consumers on how long it actually takes to get a bill to pass, what percentage of bills pass, that the legislative process usually takes hundreds of days etc.  This bill in some form has been presented to congress since 2015 and this congressional session is closing in a few months, so it looks like it will be rolling to another year.

Griffin is just as hopeful as everyone else for the HPA.  However having a realistic viewpoint on it is critical to the survival of the silencer industry and the Americans who work hard to move it forward.  The ‘Make Silencers Great Again’ promotion is the most we can do as a company to try to encourage spending right now.”

Evan continued. “It’s honestly an amazing time to be a buyer.  I remember when I was younger and was spending my money on an OPS INC can and promotions didn’t exist in the market. You could barely even get a dealer to handle the sale for you. Muzzle devices had to be purchased separately from the silencer, etc.  I remember having to help my local class 3 dealer to understand the paperwork because he did so few transactions. But times have changed and there are plenty of dealers on the market selling products at great prices and walking the customer through the purchase quickly while keeping them informed.  This program is also a great way to let consumers know that we appreciate them, we’ve been wanting to so something like this for a while.

Griffin Armament MK1 Signature AR-15s

Griffin Armament started as a silencer company, became known as a leading muzzle device manufacturer, grew their brand further into a full fledged AR-15 accessory source, and now their growth is reaching its logical next evolutionary step – complete carbines.

From Griffin Armament:

Griffin Armaments’ MK1 rifle line which has been in development the past couple of years is complete.  The MK1 series is a direct impingement line of signature rifles.

“Like most serious end users, we’ve been using and building AR’s as a hobby for the past 20 years.  We wanted to ensure our rifles were a turn-key fully featured firearm, meaning the end user doesn’t have to buy 4 or more different parts and own the rifle in a semi-complete state for months before it feels mission ready.  We’re proud of designing and integrating into these guns, a complete package of upgrade features.” -Austin, Lead engineer and primary owner of Griffin stated. He continued, “From a business perspective, we are also aware that the current AR market is extremely competitive, which is why we wanted to offer an unbeatable combination of quality, performance, and features at a great price.  Offering value is something that Griffin customers have come to expect from us, and we are happy to deliver it in this signature line of AR’s.”

Many components of the Griffin rifle represent individual, often lengthy, design and engineering projects.  Thousands of design and developmental hours were spent to ensure a proper ratio of performance and features versus cost.

In closing, Austin stated,

“ We formerly developed a fully featured rifle for another respected industry company, so our performance expectations were abnormally high at the beginning of this project.  The MK1 project developed a rifle system that resulted in a few meaningful patents, and a firearm that several of our employees wanted to own, which is typically a good indicator of success.  When you put a product in a person’s hand and they feel an immediate desire to own it, that’s the hallmark of a successful project.”

Griffin Armament M2 Back Up Sights

Griffin Armament just release their M2 Sights. They are slick, packed with features, and dripping with versatility.

gam2dk-2

You can watch the video below for full details but here are some highlights: They weigh in at just over 2 ounces and can be configured as standard or offset sights (offset to either side, south paws rejoice) simply by switching the base. The M2 Sights have a very compact footprint. They are machined from steel and Melonite processed. The front sight even uses a standard front sight post!

Best of all, they are very competitively priced – especially when you consider they are 30% off for Black Friday! These should turn some heads. Check out the M2 Sights at Griffin Armament.

The Griffin Armament XM Linear Comp is Back

The linear comp that launched a thousand XM177 replica builds is back!

Griffin Armament just completed another production run of their XM Linear Comps due to popular demand. You can read more about these from our post regarding the original run. These are a lot more than just a pretty face!

Griffin XMLC-2

The original XM comps had internal baffling that makes them an NFA item. Most replicas of these comps serve no function other than to look somewhat like the original. Griffin Armament’s XM comp adheres to the original drawings on the exterior but the interior is redesigned to work as a linear compensator. So, not only is it accurate in terms of appearance, it is actually functional.

You know you want to start an XM177 replica build! Check out the XM Linear Comp at Griffin Armament.

Griffin Armament Low Pro RIGID Rail – Now Available without the Kit

Griffin Armament’s Low Pro RIGID Rail was initially released as a kit that included one of their excellent Primo Gas Blocks, a full set of their Sheild Rail Panels, and a sling swivel. The kit is a great value if you are setting up a new upper but if you just want the rail by itself, I have good news. The Low Pro RIGID Rails are now available to be purchased on their own.

They come with everything you need to mount the rail including the lightweight barrel nut and a useful armorer’s tool. The Low-Pro RIGID Rails are available in 4 lengths: 8.6″, 10.5″, 13.5″, and 15″. You can learn more about the rails in the official press release. The Low Pro RIGID Rail is available at Griffin Armament.

Best Look Yet at Griffin Armament’s Low-Pro Rail Kit

Griffin Armament released all their official press today for the Low-Pro Rail Kit. You can see our previous post regarding this rail and read on for new details.

 

 

From Griffin Armament:

Griffin AR15 rail kits include rail panels, gas block assemblies, and all tools and hardware needed for a turnkey rail system.

The design objective for the Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rails were to provide a slim, ultralight M-LOK rail, with increased rigidity over current similar market options.

“We had been looking at the market for a while and noticed that there were two types of rails essentially.  Rails that were beefy and strong, and rails that were slim and unfortunately weaker.  We wanted to combine the desirable attributes of both category products into one optimal rail system.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on, “The final design resulted in 70% more rigidity than current similar market slim rails.  This is important for those who need to use IR lasers as armed professionals or for hunting.  There are a lot of great options now in IR laser aimer products that have solid mounting and solid bodies and we wanted to make a slim rail that provided industry leading point of aim / point of impact for those aimers.”

Low-Pro RIGID™ rails feature a 7075 aluminum barrel nut which can be installed with the included Griffin Armorers Wrench.  The mounting is done with included shims and flat head cap screws for an ultra-flush and low profile mating to the receiver.  17-4 stainless QD flush cups are included which thread into the barrel nut through holes in the rail.

The kits include the Griffin Primo Gas Block™, a 416R stainless .750” ID gas block which can be set screwed in place and / or pinned.

Additionally, the rail kits include the Griffin RAIL SHIELD™ panels as standard equipment.  This 4 piece kit provides a 4.6” length surface for heat protection and griping.  The user can choose to use the flat bottom panel or angled grip panel for enhanced recoil control.

Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rail kits    $ 259.95 – 284.95 msrp

Available in 8.6”, 10.5”, 13.5”, and 15” lengths

Rails weigh 5.9 -10.5oz

Public Service Announcement: Check Your Bore/Suppressor Alignment Before Shooting

Griffin Armament recently posted this picture of a 30SD that fell victim to an out of alignment AKM. It is not uncommon for AKs to have muzzle threads that are out of aliment with the bore but this can happen with almost any firearm. It is a best practice to check for alignment with any firearm/suppressor combination before shooting.

Remember: The threads must be concentric to the bore, not the outside of the barrel (though ideally, the threads, bore, and outside of the barrel are all concentric). If you are going to invest in a suppressor, it may also be wise to invest in a suppressor alignment rod.

The good news here is that the damage was confined to the baffle stack and Griffin Armament was able to repair this 30SD.
