Designed for the ounce-conscious hunter, the latest addition to the Silencer Central Banish lineup of suppressors is the Backcountry. Its unique construction ensures that hunters are not only saving weight on their rifle platform, they're also gaining the best possible sound reduction. American Rifleman had a chance to speak with Silencer Central CEO Brandon Maddox about the Backcountry prior to its launch, and you can view details on the suppressor, as well as helpful tips on cleaning and purchasing, in the video above.
“We took the iconic Banish line a step further with the Banish Backcountry,” Maddox said. “We’re in the business of creating the most successful suppressors in the industry. It’s no secret that Banish suppressors provide unmatched noise and recoil reduction, and the Backcountry encompasses all that and more.
The Silencer Central Banish Backcountry is constructed entirely of titanium and features fully welded construction, which contributes to an overall weight of only 7.8 ozs. The design is rated for .30-cal. rifles chambered up to .300 RUM and provides a sound reduction of up to 30 decibels, according to Silencer Central's factory specifications. Measuring only 5.5" long and 1.6" in diameter, the Banish Backcountry is sized perfectly for today's modern hunting rigs, and while the overall design is easily manageable, there's no compromise when it comes to sound reduction.
Direct-thread and muzzle-brake mounting options are available, and the suppressor is designed to work with a 1.375-24 universal mount. The suggested retail price on the Silencer Central Banish Backcountry is $1,099. For more information, visit silencercentral.com.
