NRA’s American Rifleman Names Silencer Central’s Banish 46 as 2023 Golden Bullseye Award Winner

The National Rifle Association’s publication, American Rifleman, officially named Silencer Central’s Banish 46 the 2023 Golden Bullseye Accessory of the Year. Silencer Central is proud to announce this accomplishment as the Golden Bullseye Awards recognize field-tested products that exceed the expectations of experts in the industry.

Each year, the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the outdoor industry. The awards are selected by a seven-member committee consisting of editors, graphic designers, and veteran NRA Publications staff. 2023 serves as the 21st year of the esteemed Golden Bullseye awards.  

“We’re extremely honored that the Banish 46 was recognized as the top performing accessory by the American Rifleman staff, a group of talented and seasoned experts,” said Brandon Maddox, CEO of Silencer Central. “Our line of Banish suppressors continue to revolutionize the hunting and shooting space, and we want to recognize our entire team for being a part of creating the most successful suppressors in the industry.”

The Banish 46 is a modular silencer capable of handling a wide range of calibers including .338 Lapua, .45-70 Government, 10mm and .45ACP. Made of titanium and Inconel for the ultimate combination of durability and weight reduction, the Banish 46 weighs only 16.3 ounces in its short configuration of 7.9 inches. The 10-inch configuration provides more sound reduction with a weight of just 20.4 ounces.

American Rifleman’s review explains that “Silencer Central’s new Banish 46 takes that versatility and kicks it into the stratosphere. Thanks to its rugged construction, large diameter and plethora of mounting options, the Banish 46 is compatible with a truly staggering assortment of rifles and handguns.”

Recipients of the Golden Bullseye Awards will be recognized during a special breakfast on Friday, April 14, 2023, at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis.
