Not As Suppressed


Marv's second Form 1 suppressor is ready for its debut.

The original plan was to use a clamped on muzzle device on a Ruger Mk II, but that didn't sit concentric with the bore.

So Marv bought himself a spiffy, threaded barrel, Ruger Mk III 22/45.

With some .22 blanks, he did some sound checks.

It's nowhere near as good as the 5.56 model he made for his AR.  It noticibly reduces how loud the pistol is, but it's hardly quiet.

  1. Even for .22LR which isn't that loud unsupressed, you still need a supressor about twice that size to bring it down to where what you can hear is mostly just the clacking of the action as it fires. But of course that makes a handgun like that one handle rather poorly. Just a bit overweighted towards the muzzle.
