It is worth repeating – suppressed rimfire guns are one of the most enjoyable subsets of the shooting sports world. If you have yet to join the experience, I urge you to find a friend, dealer or range willing to help you on your journey to 40gr subsonic bliss. For a variety of reasons, small silencer companies tend to start with rimfire suppressors as their first viable products. And as an industry outsider, it is awesome to watch groups like Energenic Armament grow and get their cans into the hands of knowledgeable professionals for some real world testing.
The Nyx from Energetic is an all titanium rimfire silencer that appears to hold its own alongside current market leaders. It’s also light, easy to clean and is rated up to 5.7×28. Tale a look below for additional details.
The NYX Silencer is the result of extensive engineering, testing and advanced CNC manufacturing to optimize a high performance, all-titanium rimfire silencer. It’s aerospace-inspired tube design represents the state-of-the-art in engineered firearms components. This direct thread (1/2-28RH) silencer features a seven k-baffle design to provide superior sound reduction while maintaining an extremely light weight at only 3.6 oz. This represents best-in-class low weight for an all-titanium suppressor rated for 22LR, 22WMR, 17HMR and FN 5.7x28mm.
The NYX Silencer features a unique, patented, outer tube with aerospace-style weight reduction webbing. This produces an extremely light weight, rigid tube. Titanium is used for all components for several reasons including high strength-to-weight ratio and extreme corrosion resistance. The outer tube features a shot peened finish that is a natural matte dark gray.
Titanium is naturally corrosion resistant so no coating is needed. Rimfire shooting is extremely dirty and makes cleaning any silencer every 500-1000 rounds necessary. Because of titanium’s chemically inert properties, the NYX Silencer can be cleaned with aggressive solvents and cleaning solutions without fear of damage unlike aluminum and stainless silencers. With no coating to fail your suppressor will stay looking sharp even after lots of use and cleaning. Both end caps are removable without the need for special tools making disassembly and reassembly simple.
