Griffin Armament Announces Mod3 Silencers

Griffin Armament Suppressor

Griffin Armament announced the company re-engineered its Revolution Silencer Series to add “a lot of versatility and high pressure caliber application.” The Mod3 Revolution Series sound suppressors are now rated for use with 7.62×39, 300 BLK subsonic and 5.56 NATO for hunting applications.

The Revolution Series is a line of handgun sound suppressors. With handgun rounds, the suppressors are full auto rated. However, the cans are good for hunting applications in rifle calibers. By that, Griffin Armament states that the suppressors should only be fired 5-7 times before being allowed to cool to ambient temperature.

While that is not ideal for someone looking for a can to use with an AR for high volume shooting, it does allow someone to occasionally suppress a rifle with a silencer that is frequently used on a pistol, subgun or pistol caliber carbine. This may be a narrow niche, but it does give customers some additional flexibility on a single tax stamp.

According to the company’s video (below), other rifle calibers have been tested and performed well with this suppressor.

Part of the decision to offer this silencer seems to be based on the political difficulties related to loosening the laws related to sound suppressor ownership in the United States. According to a press release issued by Griffin Armament:

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.

    HPA passage was just more BS from the Orange Idiot-In-Chief

    • PK

      Given the structure of the US Government, even if everyone were 100% behind the HPA it would take a year or longer to really push through. Betting on that and holding off on buying is foolish – by the time a stamp filed today is back in hand, there will likely still be stamp requirements. What’s the loss to go ahead?

        “What’s the loss to go ahead?”

        $200 obviously.
        Personally, I think it’s worth proceeding anyway, rather than wait for some mythical day in the future.

        Also, some people argue that suppressors will become much cheaper, but I don’t think top quality cans will drop much. I expect lower prices due to a race to the bottom.

          Not really, because if it passes you get your 200 back. If it doesn’t, well, you’d still have to pay the 200.

    • Joshua Graham

      It was never going to pass. Even if it could get the votes in the House, it’d fail in the Senate.

      Trump never said anything about HPA afaik, people conflated his other ambiguous, “pro-2A” statements with support or even knowledge of it.

      Yeah his son was in a video interview with SilencerCo, but that still had nothing to do with Trump himself.

      Not defending Trump, just saying it wasn’t something he campaigned on like he did for a bit with national reciprocity. IMO, I’ll be shocked if Trump does anything pro-active for 2A, and not just the passive “don’t come after the guns” method.

    Griffin is thinking ahead, which is good.

  • Anonymoose

    I like the short-barreled M240 there, for the ad for the “not full-auto-rated in .30cal” suppressor.

    • PK

      “Well, it’s not ON the gun, so…”

    • iksnilol

      Maybe it’s a semi auto ?

      • Anonymoose

        I doubt it. Ohio Ordnance Works is only about an hour from where I live, and they quit making them recently (as if anyone bought them anyway).

  • Texas-Roll-Over

    You clever bastards! good job dudes.

  • Treyh007

    Wish they would be a lil more specific with this, there’s already Rev9’s & 45’s on the market, will they be able to do this? Also their Resistance 9 & 45 is the same can as the Rev’s minus the modular piece, will they work as well? I’ll call to verify but wish they would explain more in depth.

    • Cymond

      No, the older models are not rated for rifle calibers. They reinforced the design for the Mod3, although I’m not sure exactly how.

      In a similar manner, Liberty reinforced their monocore with a ridge down the middle.

    Smart idea. No problem using the can on your pistol (IE for home defense) and then using the same can on a hunting trip.

    + I think it could work on 300 BLK for more than 5-7 shots if you’re using subsonics.
