As Griffin Armament continuously refines and improves its designs and develops new technology, it has been very good about applying these improvements not only to its new products, but to its existing product line. One example is the Recce 5, which has been a solid choice among dedicated 5.56 suppressors for nearly a decade and is now in its fourth generation, aka the Recce 5 MOD 4.
Thanks to Silencer Shop we were able to borrow a Recce 5 MOD 4 and put it through its paces on the range. Check it out by hitting play on the video embedded above or click HERE to view it over on Rumble.
Summary: the MOD 4 flavor of the Recce 5 brings a touch of additional sound suppression performance to the table along with a meaningful reduction in backpressure thanks to Griffin’s new “ECO-FLOW” baffle design. My personal opinion on the suppressor is that it’s a solidly-made, durable 5.56/.223 (up to .22-250) silencer that performs slightly better than the market average at about your typical 5.56 silencer size and maybe slightly heavier than average weight. It’s a good value for the price, especially with Griffin’s very strong warranty protection.
