Integrally Suppressed 10/22

Great Lakes Tactical Suppressed 10/22

Great Lakes Tactical makes integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles that are a beautiful thing to (not) hear.

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I had the chance to do some shooting with the guys at Great Lakes Tactical in Ohio.  In addition to the full auto Glock, they brought along one of their integrally suppressed 10/22 rifles.  This was a nice piece of hardware.

The 10/22 I shot used a Green Mountain barrel with a sleeve over it.  The barrel was cut and when combined with the sleeve acted as a very effective sound suppressor.  The sleeve comes off easily for cleaning, and gives the rifle a nice bull barrel look.

The rifles come with a Hogue OverMolded stock.  Additionally, a GLT top mount rail is added for the easy addition of an optic.

I’ve shot suppressed 10/22 rifles before, though only ones with cans attached to the muzzle.  The Great Lakes Tactical suppressed rifle was much quieter.  When shooting subsonic ammunition, the impact of the bullet on the backstop some 50 yards away was significantly louder than the ammunition.

GLT sells the rifles for $899 complete.  If you have a 10/22 you want to have upgraded with the integral suppressor, the cost will run about $499.

    A complex intro taking up 42.9% of the entire video for poor footage of what appears to be a very long staple gun, but that is really a thing of beauty!

  • 1leggeddog

    Skip to 0:21 of the video (which is just 0:49) to see actual footage…

    sigh i hate videos these days where half of it is a god damn “intro”.

    • Zachary marrs

      The problem is that people think long intro=high production values, even though thats rarely correct

      • For youtube, you do not receive monetization OR view counts unless the viewer stays for longer than 15 seconds, IIRC.

    Too funny that AAC came up with that design; These guys, GemTech, and others outright copied it, and AAC never actually releases theirs.

    I’d love to know how pissed someone at Rem was with AAC basically giving a new design away to silencer competitors based on a rifle competitor’s platform. That was an odd marketing desicion.

      And don’t forget the Black Box. They developed it, yet never released it despite a lot of hype and interest from the suppressor community. A little while later, SilencerCo comes along with a similar design with their Osprey, and now SilencerCo is a major competitor in the field.

      Integrally suppressed guns are older than AAC, or did you mean that type of baffles (monocore stack)?

    • tikka308

      AAC did release it – called the Cloak. I own one 😉

    Jonathan Arthur Ciener made them for years and mine is still going after 35+ years. Quietest firearm in my collection. Shooting lefty you can hold the action closed with your support thumb to make it even quieter.

      Here it is. please excuse the funky photo got a new camera and was trying my hand at “artsy” photography the result show I have no talent.

  • Zachary marrs

    You cant hear me shoot my .22, not because it has a suppressor, but because I have no ammo

  • hkryan

    SBR or is it >16″? WA resident wants to know! 😉

  • mjs131

    This gun calls out to be made into a take-down model, it would be a great combo.

  • J S

    I wonder if they can do this to the takedown model, hmm……

  • Rick

    that looks like a .920 barrel! It’s…beautiful!

    another reason for me to retire to Montana.
