    Toying with the notion of a can that can cover a .22LR pistol (Ruger MKIII) and rifle (10/22) as well as an AR in .223/5.56. Don't want to break the bank on it, but want effective sound suppression and longevity.

    All suggestions and experience welcome.

    The Tac-65 is my pick of the litter for the .22lr, I got mine from the Major for $199.00. IF you go more expensive the spector will do a range of calibers. I say stay simple, you don't have to get crazy to get a good can. I am actually trying to talk myself into another Tac-65.

    The problem is that he's wanting a .22 can that will work for his .223/5.56 as well. That's just not going to happen. He can get a .223/5.56 can and shoot .22 out of it, but I wouldn't (too dirty).

    Our TAC16 suppressor, like our complete suppressor line, can be completely disassembled by the user to include the removal of the front endcap and all the internal baffles, and then cleaned and reassembled. Since .22LR ammunition of any configuration should never be shot through the TAC16 suppressor, it should not be necessary to disassemble the suppressor for cleaning. However, the ability to disassemble for service is a significant cost saving benefit. Disassembly and re-assembly should only be performed in strict compliance with our most currently published TAC16 Disassembly Procedure instructions.

    I thought it was OK to shoot .22 through a 5.56 can. I'm guessing this is for warranty issues?

    They don't want you crapping it up and then blowing it up with 5.56. If you shoot .22 through the Tac-16 you need to clean it before switching. That red line is from the lawyers.
