    between yankeehill machine, gemtech and advance armament which suppressor would you choose for a cmmg 22lr dedicated upper? i'm looking at these 3 brands right now because that is what my dealer sells. would like some opinions. the one i'm most interested just by looking them over is the gemtech g5-22. i like the way it has a quick detachable mount. any feedback and/or opinions would be great thanks

    anyone? i've been doing as much searching and research as i can, and am now thinking maybe the quick detach isnt the best way because then i will need an adaptor for any firearm i put it on. they all seem pretty close to the same, but am kind of leaning towards the AAC Element. any thoughts?

    Try silencer talk or rimfire central.
    I have a rimfire suppressor but it isn't one of the cans you mentioned.

    I don't see much need for a QD in a .22LR. They all (the suppressors) seem to be 1/2"x28 and then you need to buy adapters for the specific barrel threads like on the Walter P22, GSG, SIG Mosquito, etc. If you are having a barrel threaded just get it done 1/2"x28 which is also the norm for 5.56 ARs but a .22LR can will be destroyed on a 5.56. You don't want to shoot .22LR through your 5.56 suppressor because of lead build up.

    I've ordered the Silerenco "Sparrow" because it looks like it'd be the easiest to clean I plan to use it on my Walther P22, Spike's Tactical dedicated .22 upper, and my wife's SIG 522.

    G5-22 is designed to "look right" on an AR 22 style rifles, IMHO it means it'll be too large for a pistol and make getting sights to see over it even more of an issue.

    If you go to mail.com you can make a free email account that isn't on the silencer talk blacklist, eg plunge@techie.com
    I did something similar for the 3 or 4 forums I joined that don't accept yahoo or hotmail addresses.

    Depends on the weapons I guess. Our club has mainly Ruger 10/22 (and family) rifles. Those are threaded 1/2 x 20. Seems most of the suppressors available in the UK are 1/2 x 20, I would be interested in seeing a quick poll on this. Would like to know which threads are the most common of the three (UNF, UNEF, metric).
    I got a SIG522 and had to get an ASE Utra for 1/2 x 28 threads.

    For that reason when I got my R55 threaded, I chose 1/2 x 28 so that I can mix and match.

    I don't recall Ruger offering 10/22 with threaded barrels, at least not in the US. So if they were non-factory threaded or done to a UK "standard" makes sense they'd be threaded to what was that "standard" where they were sold.

    You are absolutely right, I didn't think of that, they were threaded here.

    Its the 10/22 tactical model. Just bought another one 2 days ago. Threaded in 1/2×28 and comes with a SR556 flashhider as a thread protector. Im running a Thompson Machine Zepher on it and it works like a champ.

    Too bad I got my 10/22 "Tactical" before they started doing this :( I believe I saw the "new" version at the gun show Saturday. Doesn't help me but overall I'm glad to see this and the "new" Savage SR "suppressor ready" bolt action coming on the market.

    But I've already got two 1/2x28 threaded .22LR rifles (Spike's dedicated upper, Sig 522) so I'm ready.

    Zak, I must say those do look nice!
    Any chance of shipping those to UK or is that wishful thinking on my part?

    If you have an export agent with the right licenses in the US, who is familiar with ITAR, it might be possible... We don't touch it ourselves.

    Out of the options, I would go AAC, Gemtech and then Yankee Hill. Though my first choice would be SWR Spectre.

    The Thompson Machine CHD looks so right on an AR. They're proper quiet, too.

    I like my tac-65 and I use it on a Dedicated 22cmmg upper and if I get another it would likely be another tac or a silerenco Sparrow....

    I am also a happy owner/user of a Tac-65. I've had mine for six years and I shoot it often. If I was buying one now I have no idea what I would buy. Options have increased dramatically.

    Huntertown Arms makes some nice .22 suppressors for a VERY reasonable price. They tested pretty well LINK HERE.

    They are aluminum K baffles throughout. Similar in size to the other comprable cans out there and fully user serviceable. They cost about half as much as the gemtech alpine which also uses K baffles and is user serviceable. Both of the end caps come off.

    I have a Gemtech Outback IID and it's a fine suppressor. However, it is not rated for .22 Magnum or FA if that matters to you. If I had to do it all over I would look at a larger steel can or if money was not an issue I would seriously look at the new Surefire can with the mono core.
