New for 2024: Silencer Central Banish Speed K

posted on January 22, 2024

Born from a partnership between Federal Ammunition and Silencer Central, the Banish Speed K was developed with an eye toward those in uniform. A 5.56 suppressor of diminutive dimensions, the Banish Speed K is just four inches long and 14.1 ounces in weight. Crafted completely from Inconel, however, in maintains outsize durability for its size, paired with supreme maneuverability.

The can features clipped-wall baffles and a finned blast chamber for excellent sound reduction—20.8 dB to be precise. Controlled flow technology and a vented fourth baffle minimize blowback, with only a 5.8-percent increase over unsuppressed shooting. This means virtually no modification is necessary on AR-platform rifles to keep them functioning properly. Finally, its Inconel construction promises a massive reduction in heat retention. All this combines to make a suppressor that passed seven rounds of SOCOM testing, with 1,400 rounds being fired in each stage.

Ed with Banish Speed K

While obviously geared more towards CQB, high-volume shooting, the Banish Speed K should find favor among serious predator hunters as well. While less essential in the open field, a short length is great for maneuvering around blinds, and a light weight comes in handy when out chasing song dogs all night. A caliber range from .17 to 5.56 means that this one suppressor can adequately be used on most any gun in a predator hunter's arsenal, while the flash suppression it naturally provides makes it an excellent choice for those shooting under NODs. Turning your coyote gun into a quieter, less visible version of itself sounds like a win in anyone's book.

The Banish Speed K comes with an Industry Standard Hub mount for easy attachment, but can also be threaded directly onto a muzzle. It is available threaded to 5/8X24, 1/2x28, .578x28, 11/16x24, 3/4x24 or M16x1RH. For more information, check out silencercentral.comMSRP: $1199
