Griffin Armament have launched their latest offering, the Paladin 5. The latest instalment of the Paladin series the 5 is a .22 calibre suppressor rather for everything from .22LR to .22-250 Remington.
The Paladin 5 is user serviceable and weighs just 12.5oz, with a 17-4 Stainless Steel body and 6AL4V Titanium components. Griffin Armaments claim “the Titanium components to drop weight to… significantly less than most market 5.56mm (.22cal) offerings.”
Griffin Armament’s product page for the Paladin 5 lists the following sound level notes:
• 16″ 5.56mm AR15 with nato ammunition measured 131db at the muzzle and 141db at the ear
• 22LR on a 3.5″ barrel pistol with CCI standard velocity measured 115db quieter than some 22 rimfire suppressors on the market.
• 22-250 Remington, at the ear on a bolt action rifle measured 128db

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
