    So what are you looking for?
    You have a lot of properties to decide on
    length, solid design or take apart, quietest, warranty.
    you sacrifice some things for others.

    the quietest ones are generally longer or made by someone other than a major manufacturer
    22 cal is a dirty ammo so you might want to consider one that comes apart but that would not mean the quietest
    I am doing research and development for supressors right now and have found that there are hundreds of designs for baffles and some of them simply don't work worth a darn but the best designs are too expensive to mass produce and still sell for a profit.
    Small companies that have little overhead can make a great supressor and make it profitable but they sell so fast that getting one is near impossable without waiting for it to be made.

    I wouldn't go as far to say that. Numbers don't lie. I can't really think of many other sources of metered numbers other than silencerresearch and NFA talk. You sure as hell can't trust the manufacturers numbers or youtube videos.

    But honestly though, i've never seen him as all that biased other than that he likes AAC. But that doesn't really hold water because he posts numbers that show other cans doing better. What have you seen? Not trying to be a douche and argue with you, i'm just genuinely curious. I don't want to keep recommending something if there is a legitimate reason not to. I just haven't seen him be overly biased at all.

    Either way, just go talk to the major, he'll help you out.

    Which companies are you talking about? the quietest small manufacturer i've seen so far is Liberty. His designs are pretty crazy, so i'd have to agree with you there, but his kodiak hasn't measured as low as the element. But in reality, the 3 db difference is never going to be anything anyone would notice.

    Have you read his posts on Silencer Talk and his own forum?

    +1 for take apart. rimfires are filthy and a clean can is important.

    Sparrow makes the most sense to me. Easier to take apart and clean, as it has sleeves inside, so the fouling doesn't hang up and damage the parts as you take it apart. Looks like this;

    I'm just gonna form 1 one, one of these days, but I totally plan on bootlegging the Sparrow's design. Got a lathe???

    Silencerco, SWR & AAC would be the one's I'd consider. The Sparrow, Spectre and Element are all good cans that are cleanable (a must have for a .22 suppressor in my mind).

    I know you've only been a member on Silencer Talk since Nov 2010. Also, most of his asshattery is posted under another account not John Titsworth. The one he uses to be an idiot has ~1300 posts. John Titsworth has like 300.
