    Best in the silencer world doesn't mean anything. Lightest, smallest, quietest, those are terms you can use. Depending on your needs any number of cans can be the best.

    I have a YHM mite on hold for my form 4 coming in, Its not the best as in quietest but its good enough for my I will be running it on at least 1 1022 and a gsg 1911 22 when i get it. but others might not agree but for me the selling point is i can take it apart to clean it. And it comes with the tool to take it down too

    I am extremely surprised no on has even mentioned the sparrow, element, kodiak, or new surfire can. I would look at those four before I even considered anything else. Those are going to be the quietest by quite a bit...

    If I were you, i'd look at the following websites. They run tests on almost all suppressors and compare them.
    www.nfatalk.com
    www.silencertalk.com
    www.silencerresearch.com - good one for numbers because the manufacturers send him cans. Since he's not spending his money on them, he's pretty unbiased.

    It's hard to listen to peoples opinions because no one is going to admit that the product they are stuck with for life is a piece of crap compared to what else is out there. You need to look at the test numbers and at unbiased reviews. No one thinks their kid is ugly right?

    Titsworth is a douche bag. Probably one of the worst resources for testing on the net because he is so biased.
