    I see GEMTECH is offering to upgrade older .22 LR suppressors to their new standard.

    http://www.gem-tech.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=1137

    Anybody done this or have one of the new cans?

    Mine is 20+ years old now and can't be taken apart like the new ones.

    Thinking that $250 might be worth it, and no government wait.

    Pros: New core with longer expected life.
    .22 Mag rated.
    Comes apart for cleaning

    Cons:
    $250----about the price of a brand new can.
    Has to go back to factory for undetermined time.



    Thoughts??


    Thanks.

    Update, sent the little suppressor off the week after Thanksgiving. Work already completed and I should have it on Monday.

    Lot shorter wait than they said to expect when I shipped it to them.

    Adult signature required, LOL.

    Found it on the front porch this morning. I was in the garage changing the oil in the 4 wheeler and saw the truck delivering next door. Walked out and noticed the box on the front porch, nice. Glad I was around and picked it up. Packaging had "Gemtech" all over it.

    Got some swag along with the refurbished suppressor. Couple of stickers, a patch and a nice case to store it in. Looks like they test fired it at the factory. Will try and get some pictures up later today.

    Overall it looks good, glad to have it where I can take it apart and give it a good cleaning.

    Read and heed the recommended round count between cleanings. Crud can build up enough to make it difficult to take apart without damaging it if you wait too long.
