    New Release: Energetic Armament ARX 5.56mm Suppressor

    To the uninitiated, suppressing the 5.56/.223 AR-15 feels like a no-win scenario. As Ted Lasso might say it’s like drinking 3.2% beer as a teenager: half the fun, with all of the headache. In reality, however, a well-engineered 5.56mm suppressor will knock down most of the blast, hold up to blistering abuse, and have minimal impact on the gas system and the cyclic rate. Not only that, but a really good AR-15 suppressor will be lightweight and offer a variety of mounting options. The new Energetic Armament ARX appears to check all of these boxes.

    Energetic Armament is known for making well-engineered products that perform. Check out the details on the ARX below.

    The ARX™ 5.56mm centerfire silencer for AR-platform eXtreme performance. At less than 8 oz. the ARX™ represents best-in-class light weight for a hard use 5.56 dedicated silencer. The ARX™ features composite C-300 nickel-cobalt maraging steel baffles with laser welded Inconel® 625 leading edges. This hybrid composite baffle design leverages the best engineering properties of both materials to create a baffle core that can stand up to full auto 5.56 use with no barrel length restriction. The nitrided C300 baffles handle extreme pressure at thin, light cross sections and the Inconel® 625 leading edges provide hot gas erosion protection to the bore aperture. The ARX™ is designed with a ported blast baffle and stepwise progressive bore to balance backpressure and sound suppression. Less gas to the shooter, less sound to the ear.
