The PALADIN(R) 5 silencer is a lightweight (12.5oz) durable” high performance” and end user maintainable suppressor. The PALADIN(R) 5 uses 6AL4V Titanium components to drop weight to 12.5 ounces for a .22 – 250 rated .22 caliber suppressor that weighs significantly less than most market 5.56mm (.22cal) offerings. The Ratchet-lok(TM) front cap and keyed together baffles allow the PALADIN(R) 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(R) Ratchet-Lok(TM) 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.
