    I have a few .22 suppresser questions.

    Who makes a good .22lr Suppresser?

    Dose the length of the suppresser have any effect of its function? I need it to be as short as possible.

    And could I use one suppresser for more than one gun? Like use it on a 10/22 then take it off and put it on a 22lr pistol.

    My take is the silencerco sparrow ss is the best on the market damn thing is short and very very quiet.

    No suppressor works well on a 22lr barrel longer than about 4 inches unless it is integrally suppressed. Reason being supressors muffle the excess gas combusting outside the barrel. On rifle length there is not much if any excess gas. The benefit isnt much if any

    On pistols with shortbarrels they work superb.

    The Silencerco has a new .22 cal suppreser that even out does the Sparrow by almost 10db. I am not sure what the name of it is I only seen the video of it last month.

    I was researching about Walther P22 and thinking getting it with suppressor too. Mostly i read nothing but good reviews on the Gemtech Outback iiD. And youtube has more videos of it than the others.

    That's grate I love that they are so easy to clean. And not as expansive as I thought it would be. I know I got to pay what another $200 for a tax
    Stamp.

    No crap? Well they must build them better than I thought. I figured 5.56 would blow the guts out o it lol. Sad thing is I can't buy it yet and I'm scared I will never be able to git it bc of the election.

    Any silencer chambered for. 22 Cal should be able to handle the highest pressures for that caliber unless it specifically says rimfire only.

    I just looked it up. It said rimfire. But if I get one in 5.56 I could use it on the .22lr?

    If its for 556 then yes you can. I wouldn't advise it though because the results wont be the same or as good as you expect.

    you can but you will ruin your rifle supressor in a few thousand rounds. leading is a HUGE issue with nonjacketed bullets and supressors.

    centerfire suppressors are typically not able to be taken apart for routine cleaning as they dont need to be cleaned. the exception is 22lr suppressors. the better ones are easily taken apart about every 1000 rounds for a good de-leading.

    they gunk up FAST. ive got several thousand rounds through my sparrow and being able to clean it is a must.

    while you can shoot 22lr through a centerfire supressor its not wise. about the same thing as buying a zr1 vette brand new then shooting it with a machinegun to see the holes.
