    What’s the msrp on this ? Is it known anywhere?

  • I would love to try this out

  • m4shooter

    Looks cool, but… I prefer my more versatile setup with a tac solutions threaded 10/22 barrel + AAC thread-on suppressor. One $200 tax stamp lets me purchase a single 22 suppressor that I can use on multiple weapons (10/22, P22 handgun, etc.).

    So if you’ve got plenty of money to spend on tax stamps, this is a cool setup. But there are much more versatile options out there.

    any idea what the twist rate is? i always wanted a suppressed 22 that could shoot some of the heavyweight bullets out there

  • Matt

    I like it. I wonder if they are paying Silencerco royalties with such a similar baffle design to the 22Sparrow?

  • Matt G

    Can anyone explain this integrally suppressed thing to me? What’s the point? Do you still have to pay a tax stamp?

    Why go with this instead of a removable suppressor that can be used on multiple weapons and is easier to clean. And with this Boone can tell it’s suppressed until you shoot it. So you can’t show it off as easily.

    • Matt, the advantage is that it is more compact and better balanced. These integral suppressed rifles are popular overseas where suppressors are fully legal.

  • Matt G

    That makes sense I guess. And they doo look pretty slick!

  • Scott

    Matt – you still have to pay a tax stamp, and you lose some flexibility in that you can’t really move the suppressor to another firearm.

    The upside, besides the compactness and balance – — the integral cans seem a bit quieter. I have both AAC external units as well as an integrated Ruger MkIII – and the Ruger is really really quiet.

    Hope that helps.

    Awesome, but what’re the prices?!

  • loki

    integral suppressors are also easier to clean, at least, there’s less screw threads and parts involved, just the inner barrel and the outer shroud/suppressor cover. something i’m curious about, since these things are much like engine mufflers, how much quieter the report can be made by lengthening/thickening the suppressor unit, before you start to get a marked of muzzle velocity. it would be interesting to see someone think about how to silence the sound of the action cycling also.

    Personally I think that the 10/22 is ok integrally suppressed. I would rather have a Integrally suppressed M&P 15-22. I really like the tactical look and there are a lot more options available. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZp5xe963w0

    Integrals are quieter, and, more importantly, to an observer, the fact you are shooting a silenced gun is harder to tell.

  • Leeland

    “more importantly, to an observer, the fact you are shooting a silenced gun is harder to tell.”

    I’ve heard this type of argument several times but can think of absolutely no good reason to disguise the fact that you are using a suppressor. Why exactly do you consider this ‘more important’?!?

    The real reason to go with an integral design on a rifle is so that you can shoot normal rounds (as opposed to subsonic–which are slightly more expensive and harder to find). Almost all integral suppressed designs have ports early in the barrel that bleed off gas preventing the bullet from reaching supersonic speed (with the resulting “crack”). At my altitude, anything more than a 5″ barrel and I risk supersonic crack with normal rounds (even with one of my screw on suppressors attached).

  • Has anyone seen these for sale? What are they going for?

    • Dustin

      I saw one that sold one gun broker for $950.00

  • Mitch

    I am wondering about accuracy, I assume as these rifles sell more info will be available but does anyone have any amplifying data? Range test?
