Here’s some quick info about a can that I believe deserves mentioning – the Silencerco Sparrow 22 suppressor has definitely grown in popularity, but there is still a large amount of our customer base that is not familiar with this great unit. Right at 6 inches in length and approximately 1 inch in diameter, this compact 22 suppressor manages to reduce sound signature significantly. Bryon Gaston (SilencerForum) reported performance at 116.9dB at the muzzle and 119.7dB at the ear with his tests using CCI Standard Velocity in a Walther P22 pistol – this is definitely better than the average reduction of most models.
In addition to the great functionality of this suppressor, it’s cleanability is another great perk. The suppressor itself can be fully disassembled to clean carbon buildup with a few simple steps and no tools.
The sparrow is made from stainless steel and maintains a fair weight (4.7 oz or 6.5oz in the newest version) – the rigid construction of this can is also rated to fire FN 5.7×28 (!) …and lastly it just looks great. It seems that the P22 and Sig Mosquito are the most popular options, but I’ve been seeing more and more 22 suppressors floating around these days. What host weapon do you run your rimfire suppressor on?
