    I'm ready to take the plunge info suppressors, and I think I'm going to start with a .22 can. What I plan to put it on are a Browning Buckmark (will get a trail-lite barrel) and an AR-15 with drop in .22lr conversion. Full-auto rated is not a requirement, as I do not have any full auto, and if I do later, those are rich man's problems. So far my wish list and why is,

    User serviceable (I want to be able to clean it out)
    lightweight (I don't want a can as heavy as the browning mounted to the threads)
    QD mounting (seems like this would be better than 1/2x28 threading)
    quiet as possible without paying double what other cans cost

    Am I making too big a deal out of wanting quick disconnect? Are the "all aluminum" suppressors even aluminum on the mounting threads? I would think the steel barrel threads could quickly and easily wreck those threads.

    Thank you.

    I would honestly take QD out of your purchase criteria - it's a waste on a deuce-deuce can.

    My top recommendation would be the Silencero Sparrow.

    It's the easiest can on the market to take apart for cleaning and one of the quietest available!

    I only list both because, so far, I love my Trident and have heard a lot of good about the spectre. However, after a conversation with someone who owns a sparrow, if I knew for sure I would be using it for .22lr only, I would go with the sparrow.

    Bryon, is it accurate that the sparrow can only be used on 22lr?

    Ditto on the Sparrow. It's lighter than the Spectre, which would be the only other .22 can I'd consider right now.

    Ok, the Sparrow sounds good with lightweight, user serviceable, good sound reduction. I can give up the QD, but what about the durability of aluminum threads? Or am I just trying to re-invent the wheel and there is already a steel insert on the can for threading? QD was on my wishlist to avoid buggering up the threads on the can, but I would love for someone smarter than me to already have this problem solved.

    I've swapped my sparrow back & forth between hosts too many times to count. I've not had any threading issues so far.
