The suppressor category is also new this year, with Tactical Solutions’ Axiom taking the top spot. The Axiom is constructed of titanium with a stainless steel split tube to make for easy removal and cleaning of the baffle stack. At just 1 inch in diameter, under 6 inches long, and only 6 ounces, you’ll barely notice the Axiom. It’s rated for full ammo and will take .22LR, .17MH2, .22WMR, .17HMR, .17WSM, .22 Hornet, and 5.7x28mm. Threaded ½x28, it comes with a pouch and wrench.
As you might expect with a suppressed 22, the evaluators had a blast with the Axiom. They found it to be easy to install, disassemble, and clean. They praised its quality, craftsmanship, design, and effectiveness at noise reduction despite its compact size.
