Sig Sauer SRD22X Debuts on Silencer Shop as their 1st Rimfire Silencer

SRD22X

Any good silencer line-up inevitably has to have a rimfire model. Sig Sauer finally has filled that void within their product line. The SRD22X is a rimfire silencer that is rated for magnums (.22 Magnum) and is a direct thread suppressor. It has first debuted on Silencer Shop and they had a lot to say about it.

When a legendary firearm manufacturer such as Sig Sauer rolls out a new silencer, the gun industry as a whole stands at attention. With their introductory rimfire suppressor—the Sig Sauer SRD22X—competitors have been given notice. By offering the shooter the versatility expected with the Sig name, this unit is a must-have for your .22LR hosts.

Producing out of New Hampshire, the Sig Sauer brand is more renowned for creating state-of-the-art firearms, but the team’s pioneering silencer designs are nearing the same level of greatness. The crew’s craftsmanship is something to behold, and the SRD22X can is a prime example of their ingenuity.

Sporting a titanium tube and a stainless steel baffle setup, the SRD22X is a highly-durable option in the rimfire category. Run on either pistols or rifles, this model is at home on a variety of host firearms. A direct-thread can, it offers simplicity while at the range or in the field. Its compact build (5.8” short; 5.1 ounces light) provides optimal balance to your chosen rig. Rated for .22LR, .22Mag, and .17HMR, this user-serviceable Sig beauty is ready for duty. Why wait any longer for this impressive silencer?

That is one heck of a glowing write-up by Silencer Shop. Here is a product introduction video from Sig Sauer with an even further in-depth explanation.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    I wish John Hollister was my grandpa. Instead of a pocket full of caramels he’d have a pocket full of baffles.

    Wow looks just like the original AAC Element, that Q copied (El Camino) now Sig has a exact copy of the Q can that was ripped off from the Sig can that was ripped of from original AAC can. Everyone got that?

      You do know the common denominator among those 3 companies, right?

    • Holdfast_II

      Except that this titanium can is 5oz whereas the new stainless steel Q can is 4oz, and will become even lighter when they release the Titanium version.

      And yes, they are all apparently Kevin Brittingham designs.

      As others have hinted, the common lineage is not the result of theft, it’s the result of who did the work.

      AAC was founded by Kevin Brittingham; He scouted good talent, and approved good marketing. He was the driving force that made AAC great, and that made silencers cool and popular. If there’s one person who is responsible for the tremendous growth of the silencer market, it’s Kevin Brittingham.

      Freedom group saw this, bought the company from him, and then pushed him out while trying to welsh on their contractual obligations. They ultimately failed in that last bit but it left Kevin to go pursue other employment.

      The first place that Kevin resurfaced was at Sig; Shortly after he did, it was announced that some of his key talent from AAC had made the move to Sig along with him, including John Hollister.

      Ultimately, employment at Sig didn’t end up working out for Brittingham, so he ended up leaving to found Q LLC.

      TLDR: It’s not theft to reuse your own IP.

    I guess I still don’t get it. I’d rather have another gun (or two) than a silencer for an existing gun.

    • Texas-Roll-Over

      have you shot a 22LR suppressed?

      • Big.Little.Kid

        Seriously though. Suppressors (especially .22 suppressors) just make everything 10X more fun.

  • HSR47

    This isn’t Sig Sauer’s first .22 LR muffler. Prior to this, they had the SRD22.

  • Paul Hurst

    SRD22 was Sigs first 22LR silencer. It was very loud, now we have gen 2, SRD22X.

  • Andrew

    I thought when it came to silencers, Sig was relatively cheap compared to the rest of the market. I would’ve expected a rimfire can from them to be in the $200-300 range rather than $300-400.
