Ruger Aims to Expand Support For In-House Suppressor Line

Ruger’s rimfire suppressors are the Silent-SR 22 line.They reduce sound-pressure levels of 22 LR, 22 WMR and 17 HMR pistols and rifles by up to 40 dB.

Ruger is rolling out additional support for its new line of rimfire suppressors, the Silent-SR 22 line.

The Ruger Silent-SR sound suppressor was designed and built by Ruger utilizing fluid dynamic simulation and computer numeric controlled (CNC) machining equipment. Based on samples we’ve handled, 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. It measures 5.37 inches in length, 1.1-inch in diameter, and weighs 6.3 ounces.

Of course, what matters is how it reduces sound pressure levels of 22 LR, 22 WMR and 17 HMR pistols and rifles by up to 40 dB. It features a standard 1⁄2-28 thread pattern for compatibility with most threaded rimfire firearms.

The outer tube and muzzle mount are interlocked to prevent accidental disassembly when removing the suppressor from your firearm. A disassembly tool is included.

Also, Ruger is making it easier to attach the suppressor to your existing SR22 pistol.

The Ruger SR22 Threaded Barrel Kit 90520, $150, is a genuine Ruger factory accessory compatible with Ruger SR22 pistols bearing serial numbers 361-7XXXX and higher.

The threaded barrel accepts any 1⁄2-28 (Class 2A) muzzle device, including the Ruger Silent-SR. This kit contains a factory-manufactured stainless steel barrel for optimal fit and function. Barrel changing is quick and easy with no gunsmithing required, and a barrel cap, adapter, and wrench included. Note that the replacement barrel does not fit the 4.5-inch-length barrel model.

Worth noting: Ruger cannot bill to or ship to the following states and cities: California, Connecticut, Washington DC, New York, and Chicago, IL.
