    OK for all you quiet types, want to hear your views on which comapny's suppressors are best for the following applications:

    22 Auto pistol
    9mm pistol
    45 pistol
    45/70 rifle
    223 semi auto.

    Shot a Gemtech aluminum unit today on a Ruger Mark II, screw on, it was pretty quiet tho it heated up...cheap units so am picking up a few....

    Would like to hear re maintenance, durability, quietness, customer service, etc.

    On the 10-22, I just registered one we made today, its sort of a basic design, has anyone played with various types?

    The only one I have that falls on your list is a M16 suppressor. Mine is made by Ciener and is very durable and effective, but also a little heavy. It does get VERY hot when using it on full auto. However, it has functioned perfectly every time.

    There are some newer designs out for the AR/M16 that supposedly drop the sound signature to that of a suppressed MP5. I'd look into some of those.

    Here is a Everything in the World About Suppressors article that is very informative.

    I've got a AWC Suppressor on my AR. I love it. Also, a .223 suppressor can be used on .22LR. It isn't as effective as a deadicated .22LR suppressor but mine seams to work just fine.
