Range Time Report: Griffin Armament Paladin 5

.22 LR video coming soon! Adding to an already extensive array of silencers, Griffin Armament debuted the Paladin 5, exhibiting one of the lighter cans on the centerfire market. Constructed of titanium and stainless steel, we’re pleased to say that this high-performance silencer is durable and reliable and can withstand the test of time for the avid shooter. Boasting a Ratchet-lok front endcap and keyed together baffles, the Paladin 5 allows for a quick and efficient disassembly for ease of cleaning and service. That's right, this is a user-serviceable silencer, meaning you can take this bad boy (or girl... no assumptions here) apart for cleaning. The Paladin 5 runs the same HEDP baffles from the tried-and-true Recce 5 but with the added bonus of being able to remove them from the tube by way of the patented Ratchet-Lok front cap. An included armorers wrench - or any old AR-15 wrench - will pop the front cap off and allow access to the Paladin 5. This unique feature means that the Paladin is suited for use on calibers that lend themselves to lead/copper build up like .22LR. In fact, the Paladin is rated all the way up to 22-250! The Wisconsin based company has gained notoriety for their comprehensive designs and top-tier testing to create silencers in each classification. Griffin Armament was formed in 2005 by two combat vet brothers looking to preserve firearm enthusiast’s hearing, and the Paladin 5’s sound reduction continues in this commendable pursuit. This addition to Griffin’s suppressor family maintains the precedent of their already set high standards and is the perfect addition to any household.
