Opinions on Warlock II .22 and GA Reece 5 5.56

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

Opinions on Warlock II .22 and GA Reece 5 5.56

Post by JetNoise » Mon Apr 20, 2015 3:51 pm

Trying to narrow down my choices.
Without preloading the question with my criteria does anyone have any feedback on these two cans.
Has anyone had their hands on the new Sig suppressors at SHOT that can provide feedback?

Warlock II: solid, but aluminum .22 cans suck in general
GA Reece: Never heard of them. That should tell you something if they have been around a while.
Sig: None of these are in the wild yet. Their .22 can metered loudly compared to the competition when tested by SilencerShop, though their test rig does not meet perfect milspec parameters.

GA= Griffin Armament Recce 5, Silencer Shop says 127db,
Might go for the Spectre II.
Silencer Shop say's months before SiG ships and at SHOT show it was supposed to ship around this time so they might be having issues.
Either way I want a rim fire and center fire can before June incase ATF gets their way.

Yes. .22LR cans require cleaning fairly frequently. There are like 5 ways to do it, but most of them will damage aluminum.

I've shot the Recce 556. It was very loud. Louder than the Sco K models by a lot. 1st can that I never wanted to shoot again. GA has a lot of great cans, this isn't one of them

That is quite the opposite from what the Silencer Shop said. I was ready to pull the trigger on one but now I think I will reconsider.
What host was the Recce 556 attached to?
Mine will be a 16" AR

Yes, reconsider. For one, get a 308 can for less blowback and Way more uses, THEN look at the Specwar, Saker, OR new Rugged that is from the same designer. (Who deserves the support after being totally screwed by Silencerco) All have no BS warranty and good cans. ME? I would get the Rugged because Silencerco went big corp BS like AAC. :mrgreen:

Definitely get a 308 can. The few ounces more that they weigh pales in comparison to how much cleaner they run.

I chose the Tac Sol Axiom over the Spectre II.

Axiom: Titanium Baffles (6oz)
Spectre II: Stainless Baffles (6.8oz)

Both same dimensions, and roughly the same price (Axiom Cheaper). Similar construction. Similar suppression.

Titanium cleans up as well (easy) as stainless, but an ounce is an ounce on a 22 pistol.

Tactical Solutions is not as big of a name as SiCo/SWR in suppression, but they are THE authority on rimfire pistol and rifle upgrades.

congrats, i've heard its a good can. k baffles plus a split tube. I think they should've made it clamshells instead for easier cleaning tho. I've never purchased anything from tac sol. I'm interested in their sbx takedown barrel. I get my rimfire stuff from KIDD but they're pretty exclusive to the 10/22

I have a Warlock II. Cleaning has a recommended cleaning time between intervals of 800-1,000 rounds. I have approx. 600 rounds on mine. Took it apart and looked about like it did at 200 rounds. Put it back together and will check again in another 4-500 rounds.
