So I like to be able to run same caliber with both pistol and rifle at range-- I have a sparrow and I bought it so I could run 5.7x28 and 22lr. I like that I can disasemble it and clean it- which was a must have as well as being able to handle pressure of 5.7 round. I want another can that can do these tasks -- but not sure which to get. I would like to get upper end suppression results if possible without spending over 400.$

I plan to to sbr my hk 22 mp5 (plinking), I have a ruger 10/22 ruger takedown (accuracy, and fun) and sparrow 22 which I plan to use it on.

After seeing Jeremy's test results I would reccomend the Axiom or another sparrow. You get the customer service for sure with the sparrow and I have no experience with the axiom except it is quieter according to the silincer shop.

Yeah, that video moved the Axiom right up to the top of my suppressor list*. Just waiting for it to come back in stock.



*I'm not easily influenced, honestly.

Any thoughts in the Ryder 22 or Spector? I choose the sparrow for features and oal- wouldn't mind bit longer if it is quieter but also has to run 5.7x28

I personally have the Spectre 2. I have shot every silencer that we carry any that is what I went with. The Axiom is very tempting and would probably would have gone with that if it was out when I got the Spectre.

Good to know. Will axiom handle 5.7?

I went with the AAC Element 2. It can't handle the 5.7 but from the way you are talking its only being used on your .22's. AAC gives you a tool to take it apart and it's stainless steal baffles are easy to clean as dropping them in an ultrasonic cleaner and coming back in a couple hours to take them out and reassembling it. The biggest reason I went with the element 2 was because it's 2 oz lighter then all the options mentioned above (2/3 the weight of the others). It may not sound like much but on a ruger 22/45 lite you seriously can't even tell it's on there. It also is rated for the same db reduction as the ones mentioned above. It's a little more expensive but for me it was a no brainer since I don't have a 5.7.

Oh man I hate to hear that. After seeing mac praise it I wanted it. I have a kestrel 556 and feel it was a good value for the price. I mainly liked the design with the serial number at the back. Gonna have to rethink this now. Maybe I will stick with the warlock. I Am wanting a .22lr only can. Already have the sparrow which can handle the rest. The warlock would live on my sbr 10/22

I just went through the same thing, I had the sparrow but wanted another and due to price, performance, and modularity I chose the spectre II. I almost got the warlock for dedicated 22 but hated that I couldn't use it on my FsN or ps90. If it truly was dedicated than warlock all the way but for you troubles I would vote spectre II. Its a nice little can and only slightly longer then the sparrow. People get hung up on weight but the spectre II vs warlock is splitting hairs. Plus the warlock as aluminun(pretty sure it is) it can't be put in the dip cleaner thus another advantage for the stainless steel spectre II

Any opinions on the Gemtech GM-22?
I don't have any hard numbers but it sounded good. There isn't anything that really stands out about that silencer to me. I would get the Griffin Checkmate QD for almost $100 less before the GM-22. Just personal preference.

I just ordered a Huntertown Guardian TI from Quiet Riot firearms for $269. I know K-baffles aren't the latest technology but they work pretty well and you cant beat the price. and this can is 5.7 rated

I have a Sparrow and a Specter ii. Very pleased with both. Serviceability was a big factor to me and both are easily disassembled even when filled with crud. FRP is louder with the Sparrow, but after that my ears say it is quieter than the Spectre.

All that said, I am anxiously awaiting Deadair's offerings. Mike Papas formerly of Silencerco now has his own company currently offering a .30 can with a "rimfire" soon to follow. Its no secret that Papas was a major contributor to Silencerco's success and he will probably be producing some very good products at Deadair.
