An Affordable Suppressor from Radical Firearms

    Jeremy S. at The Truth About Guns reviews an affordable AR-15 suppressor from Radical Firearms that retails for around $350 and comes with a generous lifetime warranty. Jeremy writes

    First, some stats. The RF 5.56 is made entirely from 316L stainless steel. It’s 7 inches long, 1.5 inches in diameter, and it weighs 20.7 ounces on my scale. It’s finished in high-temp Cerakote. What this all means is that it’s a bit longer and heavier than your average 5.56 suppressor, and due to the materials choice it is not full-auto rated. It is rated for use on as short as a 10.5-inch barrel, though, and carries a lifetime warranty as long as you don’t violate those two restrictions (no full-auto, 10.5+ inch barrel).

    If/when the Hearing Protection Act is passed into law, and I think there is a good chance it will at some point in the next four years, the market for affordable suppressors will explode. The pent up demand will result in all sorts of innovative and low cost suppressors.
