Griffin Armament has built a reputation for making fantastic suppressors and their Revolution 9 is best of the breed.  For those who don’t care for or require the modular design of the Revolution, and want to save a few bucks along the way, the Griffin Armament Resistance 9 is an excellent choice.

Manufacturer claims 31.5 DB sound reduction.  The Resistance 9 is built on a 7075 T6 aluminum tube with 17-4 stainless steel anti-rotation baffles.  Length is 6.7 inches.  Full specs here.   

One school of thought is that most shooters only needs three suppressors.  A .45 pistol suppressor with a 9mm piston, .30 caliber suppressor with appropriate thread adapters, and a rimfire can.  This is certainly the path I took and I routinely run my AAC Ti-Rant 45 on various 9mm hosts.  That said, more is always better and a dedicated 5.56 or 9mm suppressor is nice to have.

This particular Resistance 9 was a demo unit from the Silencer Shop.  When testing any suppressor that disassembles, I always take it apart – for a couple of reasons.  First, so that I can share a photo of the components including the baffle stack.  Second, so that I can report first-hand my experience.  Does it require a specialized tool?  How tight or loose are the tolerances?  How do the baffles reassemble?  In this case, I started down that path but stopped when I saw how coked up the baffles were.  No telling how many rounds this demo can has seen.

The Griffin Armament Resistance 9 ships with the standard 1/2 X 28 piston, Armorer Wrench, and end-cap hex tool.  The suppressor is user-serviceable.

Finish is the standard Mil-Spec Type III Hardcoat Anodize Black.  Fit and finish are typical of silencers in this class.

I ran the Resistance 9 on my M&P Pro.  A decibel meter wasn’t available but no matter.  At this point in my experience, the raw db levels don’t seem to make much difference to my ear.  I can’t tell the difference in 1-2 decibels in the real world.  The suppressor performed as expected and was pleasant to shoot without ear pro.
