    There are tons of suppressers on the market know, but does anyone have any experience they would like to share on a certain type.
    I was looking at a threaded PAC-LITE 22/45 upper for my Ruger the other day. Anyone have one I could hear about?

    Silencer suppressor? Not a flash suppressor?


    I have a Silencerco Sparrow. It has a noticeable first round pop on pistols but none on rifles. It is easy to disassemble and is a bit more expensive.

    Second place is SWR Spectre II. It is slightly longer and heavier but does not have the first round pop.

    There are a ton of good choices. Just pick stainless or titanium. Aluminum can be damaged with some cleaning techniques.

    unless a suppressor is using a wipe type system they all have first round pop regardless of brand.

    first round pop is the rapid expansion of hot gasses in the oxygen rich suppressor after the first couple of rounds they quiet down a bit. if you wait a bit between shots air will get back into the suppressor and they get a little teeny bit louder. like the first shot was.

    to get around that some folks put wire pulling gel or water in the suppressor.

    i dont bother with it since its not really that noticable.

    i would recomend the silencerco sparrow ss. small light works great on a ruger mk3

    That's a good point. I was looking at titanium. Although they are a bit more money, seems like life time would be considerably longer.

    Not current pricing. But you can buy online and have it shipped to a local sot ffl just like buying any other ffl item online

    Take a look at the Thompson Machine Isis-22. I use their Suppressors on all my weapons.

    There is a very long time between application and receiving your $200 tax stamp to make it legal.

    My nearest SOT gun shop had the Sparrow at $450 and the Spectre was $375. Add $200 for the tax stamp and 6-9 months of waiting. Check the Silencer Shop for lower prices if you have a dealer who will handle the transfer.
    I am working on my rifle caliber can. I ordered it from Silencer Shop in march. It arrived at my local dealer in late may and the tax money went out in June. I won't get the stamp back until January at the earliest. But it is well worth it.

    Just make your own out of an oil can save money and time.

    Another reason to consider titanium is that a suppressor used for rifle calibers and/or rapid fire can reach 500 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Titanium is extremely resilient to heat damage and deformation from being frequently reheated.

    Not sure how much of a role this would play but, titanium also has a significantly lower thermal expansion rate than that of aluminum. Something like 47% less depending on the alloy. Im sure this would play into the lifetime of use. Unfortunately im in ny so I have zero experience with silencers, just materials. That's my 2cents.

    My outback 2 was 325 and a little break cleaner and two small rubber stoppers over night and your good, I can send it out and they will outfit it with a take apart option, further can buy titanium baffles for further endless use. Cci whisper rounds are phone book drop quite. Very fun to shoot something so quite and no one knows what is going , a few feet away!

    I have not tried these as I worry the heavy bullet won't stabilize well and may cause baffle strikes.

    you dont need subsonics in a pac-lite. the barrel is too short for the bullet to get to supersonic speed. there is no diff tween a subsonic and extra velocity 22lr in noticable sound since neither get fast enough in those short barrels to break the sound barrier.

    in a rifle you need the subsonics to avoid that super sonic crack but not in the short barreled pistols.

    you still have to register and serialize the adapter for the oil cans. otherwise if you get caught you get a free ride to prison to become some gangster's man-wife

    That would work well.

    22 twist is usually 1/16 and I have seen. Aguila SSS designed barrels are 1/9. My 22 is 1/16 and I'm not willing to buy any to test it out when other 40 gr subs are available.

    I do not have a 22 conversion kit for my AR.
