    So as you probably know by now im about to go on a NFA binge

    As well as the SBR's i plan on putting together over the next few months
    I have decided to purchase a suppressor First and formost, its going to be for my .22's

    So I have a few brands ive been considering and wondered if anyone has experiance and or a preferance and if they would care to explain.

    I also need / want to purchase a wather p22. Anyone have a good cheap link where to buy one? Cheapest ive been able to find is 320 bucks.


    Ok onto the suppressors

    Gemtech Outback 2 - $325
    SWR Warlock .22 - $395
    AAC Pilot .22 - $350
    AAC Aviator .22 - $450
    AAC Blackout Prodigy .22 - $595

    These are retail prices ive found not including BATFE fees.
    So lets discuss which is the best and which will give me movie quality supression.

    those are all good ones. plus its a 22 supression isn't going to be that hard, now if it was a 308 or 223 or 45/9mm that would be different but its a 22. All those are good.

    They also aren't cheap. I was going to go with a cheap one and went with a better made one.

    I've shot the Outback and the Pilot. Both are good, I've shot the Pilot more and I like that a lot. IMO the ability to clean a .22 can is pretty important too, they are going to get dirty quickly.

    +1 for the Gemtech, I shot one filled with electrician's lube, on a bolt action with some powder less .22LR, the only thing you heard was the "snick" of the hammer, and the "thwap" of the round hitting the phone book 50' away. Surprisingly, I got ~2.75" of penetration on the phone book.

    It's not "silent", but it changes the sound signature so drastically that the average person wouldn't be alarmed in any way.

    Through a semi-auto handgun it's only slightly louder.

    Perfect for varmint control.

    Of the ones youve listed I have a Pilot. I like the shit out of it and it's cheap.

    So the pilot is able to be disasembled and cleaned? That would be a huge + in my book

    The Prodigy is the disassemblable .22 can from AAC. I would buy the Aviator or the Pilot, personally. Cleaning a .22 can is good, but I prefer more quiet. Figure out YOUR priorities.
