**Press Release**

Griffin Armament is proud to announce the “Make Silencers Great Again Promotion” Effective immediately every silencer* shipping from Griffin’s manufacturing floor to its Dealers and Distributors will contain two $100 coupons which can be mailed to Griffins address in exchange for store credit on their website.  Boxes containing coupons will be sealed with a gold label.

“Sales are down unnecessarily”, said Evan Green business development manager at Griffin Armament. “When the markets have been rallying and jobs are being produced, consumer misunderstanding of the legislative process and the Hearing Protection Act, is hurting an otherwise stable industry. Many people who want to buy are sitting on discretionary spending in the hopes that HPA will soon pass. The entire industry has come to a very similar conclusion that it will be quite a while until HPA is able to pass if at all despite almost unanimous support. People not buying right now is only further delaying them from enjoying silencers. It just doesn’t make any sense and this shouldn’t have happened.  Unfortunately a lot of miss information was flying around and nobody in the industry was trying to educate consumers on how long it actually takes to get a bill to pass, what percentage of bills pass, that the legislative process usually takes hundreds of days etc. This bill in some form has been presented to congress since 2015 and this congressional session is closing in a few months, so it looks like it will be rolling to another year.  Griffin is just as hopeful as everyone else for the HPA. However having a realistic viewpoint on it is critical to the survival of the silencer industry and the Americans who work hard to move it forward.  The ‘Make Silencers Great Again’ promotion is the most we can do as a company to try to encourage spending right now.” Evan continued. “It’s honestly an amazing time to be a buyer.  I remember when I was younger and was spending my money on an OPS INC can and promotions didn’t exist in the market. You could barely even get a dealer to handle the sale for you. Muzzle devices had to be purchased separately from the silencer, etc. I remember having to help my local class 3 dealer to understand the paperwork because he did so few transactions. But times have changed and there are plenty of dealers on the market selling products at great prices and walking the customer through the purchase quickly while keeping them informed. This program is also a great way to let consumers know that we appreciate them, we’ve been wanting to so something like this for a while.”

**NEW** Griffin Armament M2 (Micro Modular) Sights

Posted on November 29th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’ve been looking for BUIS lately you’ve probably noticed that what used to be a one or two dog show has all of a sudden become a main event with some really nice contenders. Now you have to decide… “Are these bulky sights okay or should I look for a super compact set?”, “Do I want to go really cheap or really expensive?”, “Do I want normal 90 degree BUIS or should I go for a set of offset ones?”, on and on the decision making goes until your head is spinning. Apparently Griffin Armament has had this same experience because their new M2 (Micro Modular) Sights address all of that and more. The new M2 Sights are very compact, can be user configured in 90 degree or 45 degree offset and the price point even for the complete “Full Deployment Kit” is right in line or cheaper than many non-modular BUIS.

griffin-armament-m2-micro-modular-sights-1

The M2 Sights can be purchased in a 90 Degree Kit, 45 Degree Offset Kit or the Full Deployment Kit which comes with both 90 Degree and 45 Degree mount plates. The Full Deployment Kit retails for just $185. They also sell just the mounting plates, so if you go for a 90 Degree now instead of the full kit you can still convert them to 45 Degree Offset BUIS down the road. Read more about this awesome new product below or head on over to www.GriffinArmament.com.

griffin-armament-black-friday-2016-sale-1

Griffin Armament is proud to introduce affordable Micro Modular Sights (M2) compatible with Picatinny rail systems. Griffin M2 sights offer an industry first, patent pending, modular base plate system. Constructed from QPQ Treated 17-4 and ordnance grade steel, Griffin M2 Sights were designed to be the correct product for every backup sight application.

griffin-armament-m2-micro-modular-sights-3

A shooter can use these durable, low profile sights in a 12 o’clock mounted application while having the flexibility to reconfigure them to ambidextrous 45 degree angle sights using the alternate and available angle plates. This flexibility ensures these sights can be used by anyone and will never end up in a box of undesirable legacy kit. The full M2 deployment kit includes the front and rear sight assemblies as well as both vertical and angled bases for a complete modular system. However, sights and bases are available separately for users who wish to buy parts as needed. The front A2 sight provides elevation adjustment while ensuring maximum aftermarket support for your favorite post, be it tritium, fiber optic, match grade, or otherwise. An extremely low profile, snag resistant, slotted rear windage screw, affords easy but more importantly secure adjustability.

griffin-armament-m2-micro-modular-sights-3

Robust spring tension of both front and rear flip up assemblies ensures accurate repeatability every time the sight towers are actuated.

Never before has a product in this category offer this degree of flexibility. Griffin M2 Sights have a minimal foot print, and are among the smallest backup sights on the market. For a mere 2 and half ounces your rifle can be equipped with a durable iron sight system, to provide aiming capability in rain, snow, or fog, on or off axis without dependence on batteries or glass.

Griffin Armament Header Banner

Griffin AR15 rail kits include rail panels, gas block assemblies, and all tools and hardware needed for a turnkey rail system.

The design objective for the Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rails were to provide a slim, ultralight M-LOK rail, with increased rigidity over current similar market options.

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 3

“We had been looking at the market for a while and noticed that there were two types of rails essentially. Rails that were beefy and strong, and rails that were slim and unfortunately weaker. We wanted to combine the desirable attributes of both category products into one optimal rail system.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on, “The final design resulted in 70% more rigidity than current similar market slim rails. This is important for those who need to use IR lasers as armed professionals or for hunting. There are a lot of great options now in IR laser aimer products that have solid mounting and solid bodies and we wanted to make a slim rail that provided industry leading point of aim / point of impact for those aimers.”

Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID Rail Kit 1

Low-Pro RIGID™ rails feature a 7075 aluminum barrel nut which can be installed with the included Griffin Armorers Wrench. The mounting is done with included shims and flat head cap screws for an ultra-flush and low profile mating to the receiver. 17-4 stainless QD flush cups are included which thread into the barrel nut through holes in the rail.  

The kits include the Griffin Primo Gas Block™, a 416R stainless .750” ID gas block which can be set screwed in place and / or pinned.

Additionally, the rail kits include the Griffin RAIL SHIELD™ panels as standard equipment. This 4 piece kit provides a 4.6” length surface for heat protection and griping. The user can choose to use the flat bottom panel or angled grip panel for enhanced recoil control.

A Disposable High Quality Armorers Wrench??

Posted on April 25th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve spent a lot of money on Armorers Tools so I can build them faster, better and easier. Unfortunately there are a ton of overpriced junk tools out there. One of the first tools I bought was one of the long cast metal Armorers Wrench that I found by searching online. It had a very thick layer of brittle paint on it so the specs were off and hardly worked. One day I snapped the castle nut wrench off of the wrench just trying to tighten down a buffer tube. Just junk and worst part is it cost me $35. 

Fast forward to now, the guys at Griffin Armament are hoping to fill in the need for an inexpensive, high quality Armorers Wrench with their new $9.95 Griffin Armorers Wrench. This wrench is made of 4140 Steel that is hardened to 48RC with a Black Oxide finish. This one single wrench comes with a 1/2″ Drive Slot to attach to a ratchet or bar, 5/8″ and 3/4″ open end wrenches, 3 prong buffer tube wrench and …. a bottle opener. 🙂 

This tool should be all but indestructible but at just $9.95, if you happen to destroy it somehow, the price makes it what I consider somewhat disposable and you just buy another one. Don’t spend the same or more on an Armorers Wrench made of crap metals or bad design. Snag one of these from www.GriffinArmament.com.

Griffin Armament Armorers Wrench

The Griffin Armorers wrench is a 4140 steel wrench hardened to 48RC. Black oxide and oil dipped. Some finish irregularity is common to this industrial tool. The wrench allows installation of Griffin Muzzle devices, Castle nuts on AR firearms, Griffin Low Pro Rigid™ rails, and interfaces with many Griffin Silencers for maintenance or configuring. This tool allows easy access to your favorite bottled beverage.

Features
– 4140 Steel hardened to 48RC
– Black oxide / oil dip finish
– 1/2″ drive compatible
– 5/8″ and 3/4″ open end wrenches
– 3 prong CAR wrench geometry
– Bottle opener

Griffin Armament AR Furniture Now Shipping

Posted on March 14th, 2016 by ar15news

I recently had a chance to put some of the new Griffin Armament furniture kits to use and so far over the first few weeks I have really enjoyed them. They’ve been run at the range a bit and definitely have a great feel and a very unique look. Even though I liked the unique look at first, it has grown on me even more. I will be writing up a full review on these once I’ve had more range time with them. I’ve seen some torture testing they did with the ECS stock and was pleased to see it outlasted other stocks like the Military issued SOPMOD stock. Below are some crappy photos I took 😉 and the press release from Griffin Armament. The new Griffin Armament furniture kits are now shipping. Order yours at www.GriffinArmament.com.

The design objective for the Griffin AR furniture products were to bring quality, functional options to the market that offered unique benefits at affordable prices. The ECS™ (Extreme Condition Stock), RailShield™ M-LOK™ compatible rail covers, and A3 grip are available in Black, FDE, OD Green, and Grey.

Griffin Armament Furniture Kit

“The Extreme condition stock definitely took the most effort.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on to say, “I wanted to make something unique and better. There is a lot of stuff that has come out on the market the last few years that is unique but doesn’t necessarily add any new function or improvement over what already existed.”

The Extreme Condition Stock features a proprietary low drag latching system designed around a beefy stainless tool steel locking pin. This mechanism in conjunction with optimal geometry, and impact modified injected materials, allow the ECS™ to pass a 10 foot drop test when used with the Griffin MRE-HD (Maritime Receiver Extension Heavy Duty). In Griffin’s testing, the ECS stock, when used in conjunction with their MRE, allowed direct impingement Ar15s to pass an “Over The Beach Test”. Holes in the rear butt plate and along the sides of the stock communicate with holes in the MRE allowing for reduced pressure in the operating system when fired immediately after the firearm is removed from the water. The stock has a canted rear butt angle for improved ergonomics to the body. This also ensures recoil is kept high and in-line with the barrel to minimize muzzle rise. Also the top of the stock is “beard friendly” meaning there is no hole present as found in mil-spec style stocks. A low profile anti-rotation QD sling swivel socket is the provided means of sling attachment.

The A3 grip is simple in that it doesn’t have a plug on the bottom. “We polled a lot of our friends from military and contracting and a very small percentage ever used storage in plug grips even when they had them.” Said a representative from Griffin. The goal of this product was to make a very affordable improved grip over the A2 grip. “It features a more vertical grip angle and deletes the annoying finger shelf that nobody really likes.”, He went on to state.

Griffin Armament Furniture Kit

The RailShield™ panel kit sections are 4.6” long ensuring that you can get a full hand grip on the panels protecting your hand from thermal transfer of a hot rail if you are going through a lot of ammo fast. The styling of the kit matches the A3 grip. Four pieces are included. The user has the option of running the bottom flat panel or palm stop panel. The palm stop geometry is placed as rearward as possible, again allowing a full hand grip while giving the shooter an anchor point to pull the gun hard into the shoulder pocket to control recoil and grab fast follow up shots.

Griffin Armament SN-ACH Ambi Charging Handle with Gas Port

Posted on August 15th, 2015 by ar15news

The new Griffin Armament SN-ACH or Suppressor Normalized Ambi Configurable Handles are back in-stock. The new SN-ACH ambi charing handle features a gas port on the right side that redirects gas away from the face of the shooter. It also features ambi modular handles that can be easily swapped out for smaller or lager handles. 

Griffin Armament SN-ACH 4

Normally when you shoot an AR-15, the gasses that make your gun function are expelled through the ejection port but during suppressed shooting there are excess gasses and pressure that usually forces gas right into the face of the shooter through the charging handle opening at the rear of the upper. By machining a gas port on the portion of the charging handle that is outside of the receiver, the SN-ACH allows most of those excess gasses to exit away from the shooter.

Griffin Armament SNACH 5

If you’re looking for an extremely robust ambi charing handle or shoot suppressed and are tired of getting gas to the face, the Griffin Armament SN-ACH is an option to look at. Head on over to www.GriffinArmament.com and snag one before they’re sold out again.

NEW!! Griffin Armament M4SD 5.56 Suppressor

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by ar15news

We all know that owning Suppressors is an expensive addiction to have can make it very hard for most people to even get started in their NFA ownership. Thankfully, Griffin Armament has brought back the M4SD suppressor, a more affordable option versus their flagship M4SD II suppressor.

The M4SD has fewer parts and is faster to machine than their flagship M4SD2 and M4SD-K suppressors so they are able to pass on the savings to the consumers. The M4SD still has the same billet construction and QD system but does not come with a mount (muzzle device that the suppressor mounts to). Instead you can mount the M4SD to an inexpensive A2 compensator or upgrade to any of the Griffin Armament M4SD suppressor mounts. Take a look at the pictures and details below. Whether you are ready now or hoping to start purchasing suppressors in the future, the Griffin Armament M4SD is definitely worth putting on your list of suppressors to own.

Griffin Armament Header

The M4SD suppressor is back- providing the original project goals- an affordable, sound suppressor with support for compatible A2 compensators. Taking the lessons learned from the M4SD II flagship development program, we simplified and produced a more economical suppressor and are passing on the savings to the customer. The M4SD retains the welded, 17-4 billet construction and is as durable as the flagship suppressor. Full auto rated, equipped with a user friendly snap on interface, backed by an extensive muzzle device family- the M4SD suppressor is a great suppressor for the entry level NFA enthusiast desiring a QD interface.

Griffin Armament M4SD suppressor 1

The M4SD mounting system does not suffer from the wear prone issues of ratcheting systems common to the marketplace.
Our SDQD mounting system was designed to provide trouble free use.

Diameter: 1.5″
Overall Length: 6.6″
Weight: 17.1 ounces

NEW!! Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield Muzzle Device

Posted on October 13th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’ve ever stood next to someone shooting an AR you’ve definitely felt and heard the ear drum shattering concussion with every shot. The new QD Blast Shield from Griffin Armament helps reduce this concussive force by redirecting it forward away from the shooter or those next to the shooter. The QD Blast Shield is certainly not the first of its kind but has some unique features that make it one of the best designs I’ve seen. 

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

One of the main features I really like about the QD Blast Shield is that it will work with multiple muzzle devices that Griffin Armament offers but is also compatible with the readily available A2 flash hider giving you multiple different options for the muzzle device you use under the QD Blast Shield. However, I would recommend one of the Griffin Armament QD 5.56 mounts if you really want to have a sweet setup! 

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

The QD system itself is another thing I feel Griffin Armament improved on. Instead of a screw on or ratcheting system the QD Blast Shield locks on by pressing the locking gate to the side and engaging the spring clip. To remove the QD Blast Shield you have to manually disengage the spring clip and then pull the locking gate out to the side making it virtually impossible to disengage accidentally. This is the same QD system that they use on their flagship M4SD Silencers.

Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 1

There are plenty of nice features of the QD Blast Shield but the last one I’m going to touch on is the visually appealing aspect of it. This thing just looks awesome. The black Melonite finish and triangular shape is much different than other similar products on the market but these looks are an upgrade in function as well which you can read more about below.

 Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield 4

The QD Blast Shield was designed to offer significant concussion reduction for the end user and other team members operating in the immediate vicinity. Often team members in CQB environments experience concussion from muzzle blast that is not only deafeningly loud, but also can cause prolonged headaches that can last for days afterwards.

Especially effective on short barrels, the unique design of the QD Blast Shield directs concussive force forward while triangular gas flow pockets allow the muzzle device to retain it’s specific performance goals. Ultra strong 17-4PH stainless steel provides a robust material to withstand intense use and full auto fire without fear of failure. Fluted geometry in the triangular shield lightens the unit while providing internal front supports for the muzzle device.

Melonite QPQ surface treatment provides an extremely hard, durable, and attractive finish.

The QD mechanism is fast, positive, and free of wear prone geometry commonly found in ratcheting devices. The QD Blast Shield also comes with a shim set and overtravel stop to refit your A2 compensator for optimal use.

The Griffin QD Blast Shield is compatible with our line of QD 5.56mm mounts, Including the Flash Comp, Muzzle Brake, Compensating Flash Hider, and Tactical Compensator. It is also compatible with A2 Compensators that fall within the NATO spec blueprinted dimensions. Although many companies manufacture A2 style compensators not all of them are dimensioned properly. Not Compatible with BCM, BCE or PWS muzzle devices.

Griffin Armament has continued to pursue product development that will enhance hearing safety in tactical and shooting sport situations. The QD Blast Shield is a great product for those that would like to reduce the concussion of their muzzle devices.

You can order your QD Blast Shield from Griffin Armament at www.GriffinArmament.com.
