The new multi .22 SLINGSHOT suppressor from Innovative Arms goes from precision accuracy to backyard plinking while remaining easy to clean even after heavy use. The SLINGSHOT gives you extraordinary sound suppression and an ear pleasing tone all in a durable, ultra-small size. The SLINGSHOT is constructed with a stainless steel or titanium outer tube and a one-piece heat-treated stainless steel monocore. It’s also available in an extreme micro size and in various colors. The core design and durable material choices allow the SLINGSHOT to be .22 Long Rifle full-auto rated, and it can also be used with rounds such as .17HMR, .17 Mach II, .22 Magnum and 5.7×28 (pistol). The SLINGSHOT has only three parts. Just unscrew the retaining nut and remove the core.
Alpha Silencer from Griffin Armament is a hybrid, lightweight, centerfire suppressor with a Rachet lock baffle system offering performance common to longer or fatter silencers. The baffles are fully shielded and can be removed for cleaning and maintenance. It has end caps that can be switched from .30-cal. to .22-cal. meaning you can shoot rimfire through .300 Win. Mag. using the same suppressor. It includes a 1/2x 28 taper mount direct thread adapter, .30-cal. minimalist brake mount, and .30-cal. end cap. Construction is Grade 5 titanium and weight is a scant 14.5 ounces. Coupled with the Minimalist Taper Mount Brake, the Alpha is only 16.3 ounces.
