The AWC Raider™ has proven itself as a very successful military suppressor.
This unit was produced under contract for the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Air Force Special Warfare Units and has also been acquired by the U.S. Navy for Specific Users.
The Raider™ represents the “state of the art” design in a durable, compact, ultra quiet silencer for 5.56mm caliber series. The original RAIDER suppressor was created to meet a requirement for a highly compact and effective suppressor for the Colt M16. The AWC Raider™ is so effective that it can be used safely and comfortably without hearing protection in confined areas such as underground structures, aircraft hangers and small seagoing vessels. This is where the majority of military documented use of suppressed 5.56mm weapons have been utilized in recent history; however, in a totally open environment, such as an open field, it is incredibly efficient. Today the technology of the Raider has, among other advancements in sound reduction: less weight, blow back reduction control and high tech heat dissipating ceramic exterior coating. Close quarter battle scenarios typically require a few fast semi auto shots. The Raider is capable of withstanding rapid-fire semi auto and “full auto” bursts.
Secure mounting is accomplished simply with our new 2 piece “Cam Lock” system. This system of mounting will not cause the adverse accuracy effect commonly associated with the “Quick Detach” silencer types. In fact accuracy is enhanced!
The Raider is a very strong unit, constructed of 100% stainless steel with each component solidly 360 degree welded as it has been since the inception of the Raider. The Raider is also available in our TI “titanium” configuration for reduced weight. The Raider can be mounted on any 5.56mm rifle including all AR-15/M16 style weapons, the SIG556, Ruger M-14, HK 5.56mm and the Styer AUG.
