$99 .22 Suppressor

Postby Darrell » Tue Oct 04, 2016 11:37 pm

No, it's not an oil filter! TFB had a post about the Rebel Silencer SOS 22 suppressor a day or two ago, here's their website:

http://rebelsilencers.com/

They're advertising the suppressor for all of 99 dollars, they claim 39-41 db reduction. There are several vids linked at the site. Whatcha think?

Looking at the youtube pages, looks like they have or are working on a 5.56 version as well. Dang, it's about time someone had a suppressor that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. That's tempting, though I don't have anything I could put it on, at least without some work. Still, tempting.

Well, good. With the $200 tax, that is $299.00 for the suppressor.

I can't think of a single suppressor that's worth more than $99.00 out the door, and the tax is a joke.

Really, guys, I can't get around the idea of suppressors. Not in this country, not at this time.

Yeah, I kinda agree with you, the juice just isn't worth the squeeze. And I can't think of anything that I normally do, shooting-wise, that a suppressor would improve on.

I think this is great. I've spent a lot more on items I use less.

Noise from ranges is one of the most commonly used attack vectors by municipalities and neighbors (especially those who moved in after the range was already there). Being able to freely (at the gun owners choice) diminish the report of their firearms is a fine thing. Suppressors should be sold in clamshell packs on hooks next to the pocket knives at Walmart, True Value, and other fine stores.

The issue is that because of the government-imposed barrier to entry, rather than have disposable $50-100 suppressors, they have to be made out of inconel and other exotic metals so they last a lifetime of use. The market has simply responded to government interference.

My suppressors have proven to be very useful. The biggest advantage is the ability to dispatch one of our animals quickly and humanly without disturbing the neighbors. The second has been to plink with the pistols or sit in the hunting blind with our 300 BLK rifles waiting for hogs to come in without wearing ear plugs and electronic ear muffs all the time. Having muffs on your head in the middle of the summer heat is a real pain, and as someone with glasses, having muffs on for long periods of time makes the glasses dig into my head and becomes very uncomfortable. Just the convenience and muzzle blast/sound attenuation makes me want a dedicated .22 rimfire and 12 gauge suppressors as well. It's also been beneficial in introducing my youngest BIL to centerfire handgun calibers without him developing a flinch. My wife enjoys shooting the Blackout AR and wants to use it to go deer hunting now. All in all, it's been money well spent in my book, even if I did have to give an extra $400 to the government (those thieving bastards.)

I can put a pair of earmuffs on my head, and protect my hearing. I can put a silencer on the end of my gun, and protect everybody's hearing. And they have been a lot of fun, so far.

Proper cans are a big help if you want to cull a few deer out of a herd, without spooking the others. That makes a big difference when getting within shooting distance of the herd might have been a day's hard walking up hill and down glen in Scotland, or up and up an Alp in Bavaria or Austria. Not being deafened by your own shots is a nice side-effect, too.

I do think it's silly that you 'Muricans have to pay suppressor tax. Still, where I live, they're actually forbidden, so I suppose you're ahead on points.

They're forbidden in many places in the US (like NJ for instance). AFAIK the rule in NJ for any NFA item is that the police chief needs to sign off that you having it is "in the best interests of the public" or some horseshit like that.

I think most US states (I know for MO) ban their use while hunting, which would eliminate their utility for that purpose.

Edit - I just checked and they may have changed that law. Will have to research, but the generic point is the same.

It's a niche product with heavy compliance costs. These and other factors tend to mean the technology level is much higher than unregulated ones (if you're gonna spend money, you want a good one).

Well, now I just gotta wait for the better part of a year to get it. A Silencerco Spectre is supposedly headed this way. After I did that I came across some CCI .22 lr called "Quiet". Rating on the box says 710 ft/sec. It certainly is quiet. A little poof and that's about it. It is really quiet our of Grandpa's old Wards Westernfield pump action and a bit noisier out of the revolver. It does not have enough oomph to cycle the Ruger SR 22 but I think I can correct that with a weaker recoil spring before the can gets here.

I'm currently in NFA holding pattern waiting on the stamp for my new Gemtech GM22. Bought end of July.
Suppressor should be available at the checkout counter next to the batteries and life savers as impulse buy items. The NFA needs an overhaul and repeal.
