Griffin Armament Releases The CHECKMATE-HD Suppressor


Griffin Armament has just released the CHECKMATE-HD, a new lightweight rimfire suppressor that’s rated up to 5.7x28mm.

The CHECKMATE-HD is the newest suppressor from Griffin Armament, and although it’s being advertised as a rimfire can, it’s rated for up to 5.7x28mm pistols too. Not only is the suppressor very compact and lightweight, but it also features a quick-detach system and easy, virtually toolless disassembly.


The CHECKMATE-HD only weighs 5.8 ounces and has an overall length of 5.04 inches, and the 1.07-inch tube is billet machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hardcoat anodized. Inside, the can features an Eco-Flow baffle system and CARBON-GARD technology which seals the baffle core using silicon O-rings. Griffin Armament says that this all comes together to make one very clean-running can, and that after 2,000 rounds, it should still be very easy to disassemble using nothing more than a coin. Each CHECKMATE-HD also comes with a 1/2×28 EZ-LOCK QD barrel adaptor, but it’s compatible with direct-thread mounting and the company’s CAM-LOK system as well.


Austin, head of Griffin Armament product development, said this about the new suppressor:

For its very small size and weight, the CHECKMATE-HD™ is probably the most efficient .22lr suppressor in the world. We are proud to bring back a Checkmate rimfire suppressor that can carry the lineage of our initial, 17 year old suppressor model forward into the future. Built on technology related to a recent note-able baffle technology patent, and with pending patents on the mounting system and user serviceable technology, this suppressor delivers unbeatable performance and value in today’s market. We specifically targeted the previously market leading rimfire suppressor with this model. This is the new market leader in the rimfire class.


The Griffin Armament CHECKMATE-HD is available now and has an MSRP of $459.
