Razor556: Optimized for the Most Popular Cartridge
There’s no question that 5.56 NATO or .223 Rem is the most popular rifle round in the USA. It makes sense that Rugged Suppressors, would introduce a dedicated 5.56 can for the cartridge. Because it shares design elements with the larger Razor762, the new Razor556 can has some very user friendly features. Rugged Suppressors’ dedicated 5.56mm suppressor has decreased blowback,
recoil, and flash mitigation standard while clocking in at only 13.4 oz. With its 17-4 stainless steel construction and Stellite® baffles, the Razor556 can hold up to the rigors of fully automatic fire. Lastly, included with the Razor is a 1⁄2 x 28 5.56 M2 Brake for ease of attachment to your AR pattern rifle.
- CALIBER: 5.56x45mm NATO
- DIAMETER: 1.5”
- LENGTH: Standard Configuration: 6.4′′
- WEIGHT: Standard Configuration: 13.4oz
- AT EAR dB: 132dB
In case you were wondering, the MSRP on the new suppressor is a reasonable $799. You can view more details on Rugged Suppressors’ website.
While obviously intended for AR-pattern rifles, the light weight of the new Razor556 would also make it an excellent candidate for a suppressed bolt action rifle. For example, if you were building a Ruger American Ranch rifle in .223 using the new Magpul Hunter American stock, topping it off with a lightweight suppressor like this would make a handy “do-everything” rifle that’s also 50 state legal.
