Silencer Central has just added a new silencer to the popular Banish suppressor product line, the new Banish Speed K Ti, which builds off the original Banish K’s success and reputation.

The Banish Speed K Ti is a titanium 5.56mm/.22-caliber unit optimized to be compact and light in weight. It weighs only 8.2 ounces and measures only 4 inches long. Besides its shorter and lighter titanium construction, this new Silencer Central product also uses the company’s controlled-flow technology, with a fourth baffle is specially vented to reduce blowback and augment the shooter’s experience. The Banish Speed K Ti has various mounting and thread pattern options beyond the industry standard ½x28 tpi pattern. This allows it to be mounted with a wide variety of .22-caliber diameter barrels and firearms.

"Building upon the success of the original Banish Speed K released in 2023, this all-titanium version takes performance to the next level," said Brandon Maddox, CEO of Silencer Central. “We saw an opportunity to take that design and create the perfect silencer for home defense, hunting and competition use. The Banish Speed K Ti is our most compact, lightweight silencer for the .223 round to date.”

Testing shows the BANISH Speed K Ti reduces the sound by 24.4 decibels at the muzzle and 20.6 dB at the ear with a 16-inch barrel. Shooters looking for a compact 5.56 caliber suppressor will love the size and performance of the BANISH Speed K Ti.
