    I sent in my paperwork for a suppressor (Suppressed Armament Systems) in the 3rd week of December and found out yesterday that it had been approved on Monday 3/21. The suppressor has been sitting at the dealer's shop next to my workplace since December. So close yet so far! I sent the upper of a Ruger Mark III to a buddy of mine to get threaded and it is done also. I'll let you all know how it works out after I get it put together and fire it. I'm excited after a 3 month wait! :D

    CONGRATULATIONS! That's good news.

    But, as always, I have a question. I am new to guns and trying to learn. Why would you want to put a suppressor on a .22 pistol. I thought suppressors were more for larger caliber pistols, but then, I don't really know. :)

    Because it is CHEAP and quiet fun. Suppressed .22's are very quiet when compared to the larger calibers. The suppressors are generally cheaper too.

    Congratulations! I am waiting on my choice of can to be manufactured and sent to my dealer where I have a deposit and THEN I can fill out the necessary paperwork and begin the wait.

    Looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    You need a custom fit, elongated, threaded barrel. Most suppresors have a reverse thread, so it's not a matter of just getting a barrel and threading it in your garage.

    What kind of 1911 you got Playa??:cool:

    Great info. I would love to get a suppressor for the Walther P22, Hell the barrel is already threaded.

    Yes you will need a new threaded barrel. Brownells may have them. Once the suppressor is installed, you may also have to play with the recoil spring weight to get it to run properly.

    A buddy of mine in Indiana did a trade with me for the suppressor. I transferred it through Chepaer Than Dirt Outdoor Adventures in Fort Worth.

    That's a good looking piece right there. Congrats!!

    Since I was a kid I wanted one of the old Amphibian II's with the built in bull barrel suppressor. Haven't got one, yet. :cool:

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. I am originally from Illinois (The Peoples Republic of Chicago). It is illegal for anyone but NFA licensed dealers to own these or machine guns. It's a great feeling to finally be able to have one.
