With the price of suppressors being as high as they are, wouldn’t it be great if you had one that can do it all and be switched from one firearm to another regardless of caliber? You can pretty much use a larger caliber suppressor on a smaller caliber gun, but the suppression isn’t quite as good.
The Optimus Silencer from Griffin Armament is a true multi-caliber suppressor. This high performance and versatile silencer can service many firearms from rimfire calibers up to .300 Winchester Magnum. It has full 17-4 stainless construction with user adaptable components. Full size standard configuration is a 9.4-inch 18.5 ounces, taper mounted .300 Winchester Magnum rated silencer. A 7.9-inch, 16-ounce .308 Winchester rated Mid Size Taper Mount configuration is attained using the optional minimalist brake shield.
Reconfiguring the suppressor with the included booster assembly and piston transforms the Optimus into a high performance, reliable, 9mm pistol silencer. The optional low profile three-lug assembly can also be interfaced with the Optimus pistol configuration, providing secure attachment for 9mm, 5.56 and .300 Blackout carbines. Additionally, the user can enjoy quiet rimfire shooting by switching to the included .22 cal. end caps. Includes: 9mm and 22 caliber end caps; full booster assembly, 1/2×28 piston, and 5/8×24 .30-caliber Minimalist Brake Mount.
