Rimfire expert 22Plinkster lays hands on Ruger’s Silent-SR integrally suppressed 10/22 barrel and enjoys some quiet time.
Billed to be able to reduce the report of standard velo .22LR to 113.2dB on average, the lightweight Silent-SR ISB is Ruger’s follow up to their first suppressor introduced last year — the screw on Silent-SR. Designed to work with their new Takedown series of 10/22, the 16.12-inch suppressed barrel is a simple change out and its 2.6-pounds retains a center of gravity close to the rifle’s receiver.
So how does it sound? Kinda like a pneumatic stapler, but with more uses.
