[SHOT 2019] Griffin Armament Goes Glock + New Suppressors

    Griffin Armament

    Griffin Armament quietly announced a line of tubeless silencers at last week’s SHOT Show. Named the EXPLORR, the lightweight cans come in 300RUM, 6.5CM and .224, feature Griffins QD mounting system and sports a smaller footprint than other options. The Watertown, WI based company also released the 30-SDK as a ‘5.56mm-sized silencer with 30 caliber performance’. And even though they were introduced later last year, I finally got to lay hands on their new GLOCK barrels with the Minimalist Carry Compensator. The thread on device is like a thread protector with benefits.

    Details, specifications and links can be found below.

    [SHOT 2019] Griffin Armament Goes Glock + New Suppressors

    Griffin Armament Explorr

    EXPLORR suppressors in 6.5 and .300RUM rated models are 12.7ounce weight 6.4″ OAL, tubeless welded 17-4 PH suppressors, capable of 139DB 308 MIL-STD Muzzle average and 136.5DB 6.5 Creedmore, 135DB 5.56mm performance.  EXPLORR suppressors utilize the proven Griffin Taper mount system for accurate alignment and consistent flawless performance.  The concept for the Explorr line was to provide 5.56mm sized suppressors of minimal weight that punched like 308 mid size flag ships which are 1.25″ longer and several ounces heavier.

    The EXPLORR suppressors come with the new Griffin Taper mount Tactical compensator, a 2 piece robot welded, high performance muzzle control device weighing 2.5 ounces.

    The EXPLORR .224 model is 5.9″ OAL 11.5 ounces weight, and provides 135DB attenuation with 140DB @right ear sound performance on AR15’s.

    The 30-SDK, new to the gate locked lineup is approximately 6.75″ OAL, 17.5 ounce weight, and features improved performance patented baffles which provide ~140DB performance in 308, 135DB performance in 5.56mm, and again emphasize 5.56mm sized, .308 capable performance for less compromised multi-caliber performance.
