The Griffin Checkmate uses a unique monocore baffle design that provides all the benefits of both monocore and K-Baffle designs, without the downsides:
A true K-Baffle suppressor is extremely quiet, with a minimal First Round Pop; but, tends to be more difficult to take apart and clean. The Checkmate solves the maintenance problem by using an monocore baffle design and includes a pusher tool to remove the core from the outer tube if it gets "stuborn."
This allows the Checkmate to perform like a K-Baffle suppressor without the maintenance hassles.
We've shot the Checkmate quite a bit and it's definitely one of the quietest suppressors on the market!
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
7 years of development and 6 generations of checkmates brings us to the new modular system which negates the general rule, monocore suppressors tend to have a louder First Round Pop than suppressors with multiple stacked baffles. They are, on the other hand, typically easier to take apart and clean.
The design of the Checkmate's interlocking baffle design allows it to come apart as easily as any other monocore - but negates the First Round Pop.
The Checkmate's baffle core is 17-4 stainless and reinforced by the outer tube. As a result, it's one of the toughest suppressors out there - and is fully capable of handling calibers like .22 Mag and .17 HMR.
Are you looking for a direct thread suppressor, or a quick-attach? With the Checkmate, you essentially get both!
A simple conversion kit is available that will allow you to convert your Checkmate QD into a direct thread mount.
