Featured Factory Suppressor from Ruger: The Silent-SR Recoil Staff January 8, 2016 Recently Ruger announced the Silent-SR, a suppressor that they designed and built themselves. Their first foray into this part of the industry is appropriately rimfire, as their .22lr pistols and rifles have arguably been the most popular suppressor hosts for decades. The Silent-SR is user servicable (a must for any rimfire can produced these days) and supports .22lr, .22WMR, and .17HMR. While it’s not a monocore, the internal baffles themselves lock together in an effort to keep the tubes and end caps cleaner (rimfire is notoriously dirty), and it’s got to help with ease of assembly. As you can see from the photos, the Silent-SR looks right at home on the Ruger SR-22 and should be practically seamless on their threaded 22/45 pistol. Like most rimfire suppressors, the Ruger Silent-SR features a direct thread 1/2×28″ attachment. Here’s what they have to say about them: The Ruger® Silent-SR™ sound suppressor features best-in-class materials and advanced design, resulting in a lightweight, compact size and top-tier sound reduction. It was designed and built by Ruger utilizing the very latest in fluid dynamic simulation and computer numeric controlled (CNC) machining equipment. The Ruger® Silent-SR™ is easy to disassemble and clean. Each piece snaps together to seal the baffles and keep the byproducts of combustion away from the tube and end caps. It is also strong and light, utilizing a titanium tube, aluminum rear cap, and stainless steel threaded mount, baffles and front cap. Ruger has selected the best material for each part to maximize strength and minimize weight without sacrificing durability. Patent-pending outer tube and muzzle mount are interlocked to prevent accidental disassembly when removing the suppressor from your firearm. Disassembly tool is included. Other specifications include: Caliber: 22 LR/22 WMR/17 HMR Material/Finish: Titanium, 17-4 Stainless and Aluminum/Cerakote™ Length: 5.37″ Diameter: 1.06″ Weight: 6.3 oz Mount: 1/2″x28 Suggested Retail: $449.00 We’re looking forward to checking out this latest offering from Ruger.
