The PALADIN® 5 HD silencer is a lightweight (13 oz) durable, high performance, and end user maintainable suppressor. The PALADIN® 5 HD features 17-4 stainless steel tube body and ECO-FLOW™ baffles for a .22 - 250 rated .22 caliber suppressor that weighs significantly less than most market 5.56mm (.22cal) offerings. The Ratchet-lok™ front cap and keyed together baffles allow the PALADIN® HD to be disassembled by the end user for cleaning and ease of service. Traditionally, welded construction allowed the greatest confidence because serviceable suppressors were comprised of multiple threaded components that could loosen with no solution to retain them together. The PALADIN® HD Ratchet-Lok™ active locking front cap removes this concern and allows end users to remove copper and lead deposits which rob volume and add parasitic weight to centerfire suppressors over time. This allows lead bullets and rimfire use without concerns of damage to the suppressor and is a very desirable feature for high volume shooters.
The PALADIN® HD features a CNC machined, billet 17-4 stainless steel tube body for maximum thermal transfer and unparalleled strength and durability. 17-4 provides double the strength of traditional 316L SS tube bodies, providing redundant strength for additional safety. Years of internal testing has found 17-4 stainless steel to provide longer service life than 718 Inconel, a prior market leading alloy. 17-4 stainless is also twice as strong as cast Stellite 6. A 22 caliber 1/2x28 Taper Mount EZ Brake, and disassembly tools are included, making the PALADIN® 5 HD a terrific value.
The Paladin® HD 5 suppressor is rated up to .22-250 REM.
