Considering its one-of-a-kind versatility, Griffin Armament aptly-named their extraordinary Optimus suppressor. Many silencer insiders will tell you that there is only so much that can be done with a baffle stack inserted into a metal tube. They will say that innovation in the industry is at a stalemate, and that there is nothing new to offer the market. Well, the Griffin Armament Optimus 7.62mm rifle unit proves them wrong across the board.
Wisconsin-based Griffin Armament was founded by two military brothers driven to preserve gun enthusiasts’ hearing. By utilizing computer-based designs and highly-tested products to suppress firearms of all calibers, this team’s industry-wide reputation continues to grow. In addition, their dedication to passing along savings to the customer is renowned. The remarkably versatile and affordable Optimus is yet another example of their prowess.
By changing out its mounting hardware and endcaps, the Optimus can be configured to shoot various calibers on a wide array of host firearms. In its full-size configuration, it is rated to handle .300WM and will work on any lesser rifle round. With the short configuration, adding a Revolution 3-lug coupler or a Revolution fixed-barrel adapter (from our assortment of Griffin Armament accessories) onto the system allows this suppressor to be run on 5.56mm or .300BLK. (Of course, these calibers are also achieved in the full-size setup). Moreover, drop the included pistol booster system into it and you are ready to shoot on any 9mm semi-auto handgun. Since the Optimus is also user-serviceable, you can run it on rimfire hosts, as well… There are so many possibilities for this all-stainless steel silencer! Designed to accommodate direct-thread, taper mount, and 3-lug options, this suppressor will perform in either large or small configurations on any rimfire caliber host platform. Its versatility and value are simply unmatched! Get yours while you “can.”
