The SHADOW sound suppressor 5.56 / .223 is a shorter version of Hughes Precision Products LLCs
RETICENT Silencer specifically designed to withstand the rigorous
standards for todays harshest environments. The SHADOW sound suppressor is of chrome-moly construction
and exhibits greater strength than regular stainless steel suppressors it will outlast
most competitors stamped baffles for prolonged engagements. For strength,
durability and performance the SHADOW suppressor is unparalleled.
The SHADOW sound suppressor is offered in standard 5/8″-24 (2A) thread
All muzzle attachments, including suppressors, will change barrel harmonics and
standing waves resulting in slight change in point of impact with the device in
place. The degree of change in the point of impact will vary with the specific
weapon and both the rigidity and metallurgy of the barrel. When used with standard
weight varmint, law enforcement or military grade barrels, there will be no
detrimental effect on group size.
This suppressor is effective in manifestly reducing the sound of the muzzle blast,
making it difficult for an observer to determine the origin of the shot and reducing
the need for shooter hearing protection. There is no way of eliminating the
ballistic crack (sonic boom) of the projectile traveling downrange.
This suppressor contains no expendable parts. We recommend against cleaning
the interior of the suppressor. This instruction manual give the necessary
instructions for maintenance of this unit.

designed to operate completely DRY. Introduction of liquids, greases or other
foreign materials can cause abnormal pressures and must NEVER be used. Any
resultant damage is not covered under warranty.
