In a previous post I discussed choosing the right 22LR suppressor for your needs. But what I didnt do was explain that there are many more options for a 22LR suppressor than dedicated silencers.
You see in the early days, there was caliber specific designs with very little leniency towards shooting other calibers out of your silencer. This was because people made them out of low cost materials and designed them around the caliber in question very deliberately. This works great when you want to suppressor a certain caliber only, but not so much if you want to suppress multiple calibers.
Back in late 2010 we launched the Mystic silencer. This was ground breaking in that it was the first true multipurpose 9mm bore silencer that worked really well on a long list of other calibers as well as 9mm. The truly first multipurpose silencer was born.
This gave rise to people actually using their Mystic as a 22LR suppressor. This was made possible by the team at Liberty Suppressors making the Mystic to where it could be easily dismantled by the end user for cleaning. This also gave rise to another phenomenon in the silencer world…user serviceable suppressor designs.
Another often overlooked 22LR suppressor is the integral. IF you love shooting one specific type of firearm like a 22LR rifle or pistol of a certain kind, then an integral really makes a lot of sense and will quickly become the only firearm you get out of the safe. By building integrally on the host firearm we are able to significantly lower the sound signature of the firearm WAY past that of a thread on muzzle can. Things like integral 10-22 builds and such are really common but this kind of design really shines on bolt action builds. IT can literally be made to where the rifle sounds like you dry fired it. This is incredible levels of suppression and has to be expierienced to be understood.
When you start looking into the other areas for a suppressor to go on your 22LR build, just remember that there are many more than just the little 22LR silencers that you see on the shelf. We here at Liberty Suppressors will be glad to help you design your custom build to bring you dreams to life or to even get you a multipurpose silencer for your first time purchase to dip your toes into the world of silencers.
