Griffin Armament has released details regarding their new Paladin 5 Silencer.
User serviceable rifle sound suppressors are becoming more and more popular and requested. We have been fielding requests for them for probably the last 5 years with decent volume. It’s not applicable to all end users as a lot of users don’t really shoot a lot. But if you’re one of these guys that is on the range all the time or out on the back 40 shooting all the time it’s definitely really nice to have. Depending on the ammo you’re using how dirty or clean the powder burn is etc, how badly the twist in your barrel shaves copper off your bullets and throws molten lead in your suppressor… all of that adds up for people that shoot a lot. What do we mean by a lot?, we’re talking thousands and thousands of rounds so it’s not needed for most people, but if you are a heavy shooter and you want to be able to clean the suppressor and set it back to factory specs, that’s a really nice feature. Cans get heavier over time due to the carbon and copper deposits building up in the suppressor with use. And the Ratchet-lok™ end cap on the Paladin® suppressors makes them super easy to take apart and service but also ensures they stay together even under hard use.
Personally, I like them. The Paladin is right now my favorite series that we make. It’s definitely not the easiest suppressor to make but its its one of the best.
