Any gun can be silenced. It just requires the vaccum of space.

It's hard to say since I can think of at least six different models of ".22 ruger". But the larger answer is no, there are lots of different guns that can be made very quiet.

very true the P90 with a silencer the only noise is the bolt slapping metal, which with the some modding can be quieted down. Mosin revolver because the cilander moves forward to enclose the system it can be silenced pretty well, really very little noise.

The absolute quitest .22 rifle is a Savage bolt action that is integrally suppressed by Thompson Machine. I shot this gun at the Silencer Shoot outside a Memphis a few weeks ago. It put all other .22's to shame.

You can litteraly hear the firing pin whack the case.
It used to be said that a rifle was a quiet as a pellet gun. This thing makes a pellet gun sound loud.

Its called the Operative B. Look it up.

No such thing as a Class III license except for dealers. In order to POSSESS a suppressor in the US, you must have registered the transfer of ownership of the suppressor with the BATFE, and the transfer is handled by a class III dealer. You pay a one time $200 tax to the Feds. Same as a machinegun or short barreled shotgun.

The ownership of a suppressor is flat out illegal in some states. No ammount of money or licenses will get you one.

No distinction between 45 and 22 suppressors. Both and everything in between require going through the hoops setup by hoplophobic politicians
