    Alright, I am opening up the floor to discuss what some of you might have for a .22lr pistol as a suppressor host and what suppressor you have.

    I am looking at the Ruger .22/45 Lite or the Browning URX suppressor ready. Reason being, I already have a Mark I .22/45 and a Buckmark URX and like both guns.

    Suppressors being considered are Dead Air, Sig, and Ruger models. Mostly because I am leaning towards the titanium/stainless construction.

    Anyone that owns or has first hand use of this subject I would like you to chime in. Open to suggestions if you can back it up with solid reasoning.

    I have a ruger mk3 and run a tactical solutions axiom. I really like the pistol but am considering going to a mk4 lite just to make the whole package lighter. The axiom is awesome, its light and easy to clean. The body is aluminum but has a stainless sleeve to hold the baffles that slides right out when you need to clean it, the baffles are titanium so they will hold up and resist most any cleaning method. The can goes back and forth between my 10/22 and the mk3 and works well on both. Im sure you would be happy with almost any combo you were to choose, I like what I have. Thats just my 2 cents.

    I have the 22/45 lite with aac prodigy. Simple one piece baffle for easy cleanup. I like that its close to same diameter as barrel.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the input guys. The gun decision got made this last weekend. Wife got me the gun below for Christmas. Browning Buckmark URX Pro Target with 4.4" barrel. It came down to this one or the 22/45 lite. I have a MKIII 22/45 and my son has a Buckmark so I am familiar with both. This is a good bit heavier than the LITE but I think I will like it.

    I am leaning towards the Dead Air Mask 22HD for the suppressor.

    Last question: Did either of you go through setting up a gun trust to purchase your suppressor or did you just buy outright? I am torn right now as I don't anticipate having a dozen of these but it would be nice to have others in my family to be able to posses with out my presence.

    I went with a trust just because it seemed like the easiest route at the time and I plan to have at least one more suppressor in the future so I can just add it to the trust. I seem to remember reading something awhile back that trusts have gotten a little more complicated but dont remember all the details. I bought mine through silencershop and it was all prettyy painless except for the wait pf course.

    bigshad,
    Cool, I was thinking about doing the trust through the silencershop as well. If you have time, PM me any details that would be helpful for a newbie. I am expecting to wait 6-8 months.

    Last I was hearing it was close to a year. Maybe wait times are coming down.
