HMR - .17HMR & .17HM2
The HMR is designed specifically for varminters and target shooters using the Hornady .17HMR or .17HM2 round. Our all-stainless suppressor isn’t any .22lr suppressor dumbed-down for use with this hot round. It is purpose-built to live up to heavy use in the longest varmint hunts. The Gemtech HMR suppressor is a very discreet, low-profile thread-mounting unit that provides OSHA-safe hearing protection in a package only 7/8” in diameter and only 5 inches long. Any varminting suppressor should have zero first round pop, and the GEMTECH HMR suppressor delivers, with the first shot as quiet as the rest, concealing the shot origin and keeping the targets confused for followup pack shots.The HMR suppressor attaches to most common .17HMR barrels by standard 1/2-28 threads. Gemtech can thread your barrel for a nominal charge, or a local machinist may follow our instructions and thread it locally. This suppressor is designed specifically for the .17HMR and .17HM2. It is not suitable for use with .22 rimfire or for .17 centerfire cartridges. Accuracy of most host firearms is unchanged with the HMR suppressor attached, as nothing contacts the projectile - a fixed, welded baffle system allows passage of the bullet without risk of bullet-baffle contact. Due to the baffle design acting almost like a "frictionless barrel", the gases still push the bullet after it is freed from the lands and groove, thus velocity is boosted slightly using the GEMTECH HMR suppressor.
