TFB Review: Griffin Armament A2 Silencer Adapter

Griffin Armament makes a variety of silencers and related accessories. One of the most interesting is their A2 Adapter. It allows any silencer with 1.375×24 rear threads to mount to standard AR flash hiders. I got my hands on one and tried it on several different guns, and thought my experience would be worth sharing.

TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #109: The Return of Brandon Maddox of Silencer Central

Like last week’s episode, this week’s episode jumps right back into the hot topic of suppressors and this time we’re talking about more than just wishful thinking about getting rid of the NFA, and keeping wait times at a reasonable interval. This week we’ve brought back a favorite guest of ours, CEO Brandon Maddox of Silencer Central, to talk about all things NFA. While Brandon has the same wish as us about getting rid of the NFA, he does have some pretty poignant thoughts about what would happen should the NFA disappear and what that might look like for firearm owners and hunters on a state level. He also goes into depth with Pete about the recent surge of interest in suppressors and how that might be adversely affecting the average quality of suppressors being put out onto the market today.

The Rimfire Report: The Eternal Debate – SBR or Takedown 22LR Rifle?

Hello and welcome back to another edition of The Rimfire Report! This ongoing series is all about the rimfire firearm world and its rich history, the extensive array of unique firearms, as well as its fun and enjoyable shooting sports that are accessible to virtually everyone on the globe. Last week we talked about the extremely obscure, rare, and quite honestly pretty cool M6 Scout Rifle. This takedown, folding combination gun is one that many of us seem to have a massive affinity for, even if the concept itself isn’t all that great on paper. I think most of us might rather have a dedicated semi-auto, bolt-action takedown, or SBR 22LR rifle than an M6 as a general-purpose 22LR rifle. So today we’ll be going over the advantages and disadvantages of both, to see what the general consensus is among you, readers, as well as a few of the TFB staff that I’ve asked about the concept.
