Default 22 Suppressor/Silencer

Just curious if any DFW folks have input here. Looking to get one and would like to know if there are any preferences or experiences anyone might like to share. Possibly even meet up for a demo if you have one. I am pretty basic in my desires, just want to make a 22 plinker quiet. Thanks, J

I have a Huntertown Arms Guardian-22. When paired with my Savage Mark II FV-SR bolt-action and subsonic ammo, it is super quiet - all you hear is the trigger action.

Suppressors are a dirty affair. The blow back gets on everything. Consider how easy, or not, the can will be to clean:

Silencer Co Sparrow hands down. Can be broken down for sonic cleaning as well.

Blowback isn't too bad on a pistol or 22 rifle, on a AR platform it can be nasty as there is a ton of high pressure gas right at your nose.

Ruger 10/22 with an integral suppressor. They can be ordered from Ruger if you have the paperwork. All you hear is the click of the bolt.

I think if a .22 is you choice, then I think I would be looking at the Ruger with the suppressor and barrel matched together. I recently bought a suppressor for my 1911. The 45ACP ammo is naturally subsonic so it pretty easy to keep the gun quite with a suppressor. It still wouldn't have the round capacity of a .22 tho.

The new thing in suppressors is to get one that has interchangeable caliber cambers. ATF gives you a license on the outer canister but you can change the internals as you please, so you can get a suppressor that will fit multiple guns. I'm not sure if they go from .22 to .45 but I haven't really researched it a lot.

Something to consider with integrally silenced guns is that you'll be limited to that one weapon. I use my HTA Guardian on both my Sig Mosquito pistol and Savage Mark II rifle.

Regarding one silencer for multiple calibers, it is not a good idea to use a 22lr can for 556mm rifle; however, you could use a threaded 556mm for a 22lr rifle, but it will be heavy and the can will get much more lead and carbon fouling.

I use a 762 can for my 762, 300blk, and 556 rifles and I use a 45acp can for 45acp and 9mm pistols. The rifle can (AAC 762-SDN) doesn't need any changes to switch calibers, but my 45acp can requires a 9mm piston specifically for it (AAC TiRant 45) in order to thread onto my 9mm pistol.

Have any of you guys heard of Maddmann Whisper Devices , sounds legit right? LOL, in all honesty, I spoke with him at the Gun show last weekend and was impressed with how small his silencers were compared to others. He also commented as to how quiet his are in comparison to others. Was thinking about taking a trip out to his facility to shoot a bit and check them out in person. Will report if I do, but his claims were that a DFW area law enforcement group came to his facility with a verity of guns/silencers and after the comparison of what they had he ended up with a large order of his products. So I asked him how he stacks up with SilencerCo...without a pause he said his were hands down quieter...now I just need to see/hear for myself. Any experience with this company would be appreciated.

I received my Silencerco Spectre II a few weeks ago and it's been a blast. I want to suppress everything now. Hehe.

I have a SilencerCo Sparrow and AAC Element II. Both are great cans. The Sparrow's selling point is ease of cleaning, but has a monocore baffle and therefor with suffer from a mild first round pop. The Element has individual baffles that make it more difficult to assemble and clean, but has less first round pop. Can't go wrong with either, but if you intend to use it a lot, I would lean toward the Sparrow due to the cleaning issue. Rimfire ammo is DIRTY.

The Spectre is a great suppressor as well and look at the Surefire Ryder (haven't had a chance to shoot the Ryder yet).
