"For those suppressor customers who are out there looking for a one do-all suppressor, they're going to have a hard time finding something better than the Banish 46."

When Silencer Central first announced its Banish 46 suppressor back in January 2023, your friends at American Rifleman were among the very first to experience the utility of this innovative can at the 2023 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trades (SHOT) Show. We just knew we'd need to bring one in-house for a full review. 

The Banish 46 was created in particular to reduce the report and recoil from straight-walled hunting cartridges. It was designed for use with a wide assortment of rifle calibers including .338 Lapua up to the .45-70 Government as well as pistol calibers. In American Rifleman's full testing protocol, the suppressor provided a rating of 137.14 decibels in its short configuration and 135.97 decibels in its longer configuration when firing Hornady Subsonic 410-grain Sub-X rounds out of a .45-70 Gov't-chambered Marlin 1895 SBL. Unsuppressed, the gun produced a decibel rating of 154.12.

"Silencer Central is probably best known for the way it has revolutionized the suppressor buying process by taking over the annoying NFA paperwork for their customers, as well as giving every customer a gun trust with their purchase," American Rifleman Senior Executive Editor Kelly Young said in this great review from American Rifleman TV. ""For those suppressor customers who are out there looking for a one do-all suppressor, they're going to have a hard time finding something better than the Banish 46," Young concluded.
