I don't have one.....I have no excuse for not having one.....should have had one 15 years ago. SilencerCo. SS Sparrow for me when I get one. What you want is one that you can disassemble and clean......there are various suppressor tests around the net and some on the P22 specifically. Good luck. Too bad they take so long to get.....I want to just go down and pick one off the shelf, screw it on and go shooting. All that paperwork and wait is what has stopped me. Still not a very good excuse though. Oh yeah....you don't want one that is so fat it blocks your sights. M1911

Thanks for the reply. I have a .45 suppressor, but the idea of the "silence is golden" with a .22 can has me really stoked to get one. I hate the wait, but probably going to be awesome. I'll check out the Sparrow. Thanks.

When I get my PPQ 22 next year, I plan on getting the Element 2 suppressor for it.

Do you need to do anything special to get a suppressor? I have a CCW permit.

Holy crap.... I just started digging into what is involved! Wow.... $200 tax stamp to begin with.

Then there is a 6 to 9 month wait. You purchase the suppressor so you can send in the serial number.....you don't actually take possession of the device until everything is cleared, approved and paid for. Then you will need to purchase a thread adapter for the front of the P22 or other threaded barrels. These pistols are not threaded directly for the suppressor. Adapters are about $35, they screw onto the existing barrel, replacing the barrel nut and holding the sleeve/barrel tight. The end of the adapter has the correct threads for the suppressor. There is usually a small screw on thread protector to protect the exposed threads on the adapter when the suppressor is not installed.

Then...you need to determine the method of ownership. It is legal to allow other folks to shoot your suppressed pistol as long as you are present. It is illegal to let them borrow it. Unless you use another form of ownership......like a Corporation....then friends and family can be added as lawful shooters and have the device in their possession....but, the law varies from State to State and some States do not allow suppressors.

Too dang complicated......but, one of the LGSs here has a lawyer all ready and willing to set you up with whatever form of ownership you want for
$ 125 which is probably as inexpensive as it gets if you are wanting something other than single party ownership. Then you have to buy some bullets. It never ends....... M1911

I have a Silencerco Sparrow and Innovative Arms Apex S. They are both monocore suppressors the Innovative Arms I like a little better than the Sparrow. The sparrow is just a tad smaller in diameter but doesn't come with a tool to take the end cap off. The Sparrow is 5 pieces(threaded end cap, core, 2 piece shell and outer tube) the Apex S is 2 pieces(outer tube and core) and has a tool to help take down. Both are rated to 5.7x28 cartridge.

Hope this helps.

Have a Sparrow for my Mk II. Nice and cleaning is a necessity. Buy it from your range if you can. You can use it on their premises until BATFE gets around to issuing your tax stamp. 8 months and still waiting.

Great idea; just no ranges anywhere I know of who sell suppressors though.
Take care and Merry Christmas!
