AAC Ranger

Advanced Armament Company, also known as AAC, has been a leader in firearm sound suppression since 1994. Now AAC is expanding its premium suppressor lineup with the introduction of the all-new Ranger Series. The first two models in the series are the Ranger 5 and Ranger 7. These suppressors were developed specifically for AR-15 and AR-10 platform rifles and feature a compact design and reduced weight that delivers reliable, on-the-move performance for tactical or sporting applications.

The Ranger series is constructed of Inconel 718 high-strength nickel alloy and 17-4 H900 stainless steel for maximum strength and corrosion resistance and are built to withstand the harshest environmental conditions and high-volume operation. Both Ranger suppressors are treated with a high-temperature Cerakote finish for additional protection and are full auto rated.

The compact Ranger 5 is designed for AR-15s chambered for 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. and offers 32dB sound reduction when used with M193 5.56mm ammunition. The Ranger 7 works for rifles chambered up to .300 Win. and provides up 30dB (M80 .308 Win.) reduction performance with M80 .308 Winchester ammunition.

The Ranger 5 and Ranger 7 suppressors also incorporate a built-in muzzle brake and have standard 1.375-24 mount capability and are compatible with conventional HUB adapters.
