Griffin Armament Releases their XM177 Linear Comp Gen 2

For you “Retro-Heads” out there looking to recreate the classic Vietnam-era XM177E2 carbine, Griffin Armament has recreated one of the most prominent features of said carbine – its iconic Moderator. Not so much a Suppressor or muzzle brake, the XM Moderator was designed to tame the massive bark of a short-barreled rifle. Usually, when you look for a reproduction they’re just a solid piece of steel with slots milled to recreate the look and nothing more. Griffin Armament has taken the design and converted it into a functional muzzle device with their XM177 Linear Comp Gen 2.

Engineered Silence – this is the tagline that Griffin Armament adheres to with both its rifles and suppressors. Today’s episode of the TFB Behind The Gun Podcast not only features Griffin Armament, but today our host Pete takes the time to ask these good fellas just exactly how they measure their suppressor products against the current standards for sound reduction, other methods of measuring sound reduction or peak sound pressure and also talk at length about all the different types of tools out there used to test and measure suppressors.

NEW: Griffin Armament DUAL-LOK Rifle Suppressors, Muzzle Devices

A recent poll of 956 silencer owners showed that 69% prefer to use a quick disconnect (QD) mounting system over direct thread mounts. Out of those who responded, 100% of them require a solid, dependable mechanism that is easy to use. Ok, I just made up all of those numbers, but theoretically, it could all be true. Griffin Armament has just announced a new mounting system and muzzle device lineup for rifle suppressors. The Griffin Armament DUAL-LOK mounts use a simple spring-loaded locking ring that has two locked positions separated by a neutral position for installation and removal. I’ve been using the system for about a week and it works as advertised. Give me another week to get both suppressors and a variety of muzzle devices out on the range for a full report.
