Griffin Armament: CAM-LOK Universal QD Piston System
Long the bane of suppressor owners’ existence, moving the can from one gun to another involved carrying extra tools and a lot of aggravation. Not anymore. Griffin Armaments has introduced a universal suppressor mounting system that makes moving the suppressor from one barrel to another quick and easy. According to Griffin’s announcement, “The CAM-LOK (Covert Application Mount – Locking) is a universal, QD piston system that allows rapid, secure, mounting of pistol suppressors to handguns.”
Designed to also prevent cans from backing off the threads, the CAM-LOK uses a patent-pending interface that prevents damaging and dangerous baffle strikes by mounting the suppressor more securely than conventional threads.
Griffin stated that “Durable, cam-like threaded adapters, which are available in a variety of thread pitches, are installed to 20 ft/lbs with a ¾” wrench to the host firearm. The CAM-LOK pistons then act as a universal mount like those found in rifle silencers, to couple the suppressor to the firearm with the barrel adapters. This ensures that all your handguns, both metric and English, can be adapted to fit your pistol suppressor without tedious reconfiguration back and forth with various threaded pistons to suit the pistol being used.”
Griffin sells the barrel adaptor in a variety of common thread configurations to fit just about any barrel and suppressor match on the market, with more coming along as development continues.
The system comes in 17-4 stainless steel material with a QPQ Nitride finish for attractive, durable black finish.
