TBA Suppressors Sicario Ruger MKIV Integral

Even with the recent recall announcement regarding Ruger’s new MKIV rimfire pistol, I find myself still on the hunt for my first integrally suppressed rimfire pistol. Luckily, another manufacturer has come forward with a design that should be both ultra quiet and easy to clean. TBA Suppressors released the Sicario, a monocore design that includes a quick detach system for easy cleaning.

TBA Suppressors Sicario ruger MKIV:

Sicario is the new and improved version of our QAS line of integral silencers for 2017. We went back to the CAD program and after 28 monocore designs emerged a PATENT PENDING 2 piece quick detach integral that is not only quieter than its predecessor but comes apart for cleaning in about 30 seconds. No more tedious parts to manage! Although the end cap is broached for an allen wrench like the remainder of our designs, there is no allen wrench required as you can use the factory magazine to disassemble the entire suppressor. The monocore is constructed from 2024T351 aluminum and TYPE III anodized for a lifetime of use. There is also a stainless insert in the rear of it that will not fatigue. Alignment on your weapon is easy with our new Patent Pending β€œfast attach 28” thread mount system. Fluting is in now included on all silencers at no additional cost to you.

  • MSRP: $699
  • YES, Your current silenced MKI, II, III, or 22/45 can be upgraded to this awesome design! Please email us today.
  • Price is for silencer on your pistol. Add a SS MK IV for additional charge.
  • 115dB with high velocity ammunition

 

Sicario

 

In 1996 TBA founder Todd Brueckmann had a suppressor installed on a Ruger MKII. Although this pistol was quiet, it lacked the ability to hit a phone book at 25 ft. Several trips back to the Class II manufacturer that built it, did not solve the problem. Having an extensive blend of metallurgy, machine work and design fabrication experience we applied for an FFL/SOT and fixed it ourselves.

And that’s how it all started. Our goal is to continue to provide products that outperform others and give a lifetime of hassle free performance, coupled with outstanding post purchase support. We continue to repair our competitors suppressors on a regular basis because despite there dominance in the industry, they cant be bothered with standing behind there product lines that got them there, but are not serviceable. Send them in. We can fix them.

TBA Suppressors started in an 1000 square foot rental and now has over 14,000 square feet of state of the art CNC machining centers to guarantee precision and accuracy in everything we offer. This includes our complete line of suppressors for all calibers from .22- .338 caliber, As well as machine gun repair, short barreled rifles, AOW’s, Precision rifles and machining services. While we continue to bring innovative products to the market that no one else can, TBA Suppressors spends countless amounts of time in the R&D side of our business and it shows. Our Flawless reputation, innovation and product quality are why our customer base ranges from Game Departments and the SWAT/Tactical community all over the United States, to our over 100 stocking dealers from coast to coast, to our local customers in Ashland Virginia, and to the horn of Africa.

    one thing I’m unsure of on these MKIV’s, can you swap the “upper” part to different “lower” grips? like swapping between a 22/45 and regular grip on the same barrel?

    • AndyHasky

      So… no-one knows?

    • Darren Hruska

      With such a high-profile pistol, clearly somebody should know. Modularity is a pretty big selling point in modern handgun design, as if the MK IV’s insanely easy takedown didn’t already make the series an instant hit.

      • AndyHasky

        Modularity between the frame a barrel would make it that much better though.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Nice, but I doubt theyre doing themselves any PR favors by naming this after, you know, a hit man.

    • Anonymoose

      Does it work well on wives and kids?

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        “Listen, this thing is so quiet you could kill every nurse in the maternity ward without waking up the babies. I mean, uh, its perfect for hunting.”

        • Anonymoose

          You haven’t seen the movie have you? Guess I just spoiled the ending. lol

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Sorry, I missed that.
            Long day.
            I thought he had an HK .45 in that scene…

          • Anonymoose

            Yeah, it was a Mk23.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            That movie was badass, much better that her husbands “13 Hours”. Although it was better than expected for a Michael Bay joint.

    • valorius

      It’s an awesome sounding name, but yeah, it could be a problem in a court room, if you for some reason decided to shoot a bad guy with a suppressed .22…lol.

  • EzGoingKev

    It would be nice if they provided overall barrel length but as this site has become drive by journalism I am not surprised to find specs missing.

    • LGonDISQUS

      Loks like a 3″er, which is about 1.25 less than I hoped for…. (insert wife jokes?)

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      There are no specs shown and I have message to TBA about getting some listed. But thanks for the compliment.

  • valorius
    • iksnilol

      Those grips broke my neck because I cringed so hard from seeing them. Though it looks like a fun rig.

      • RocketScientist

        Have you READ any of valorious’ posts? That gun is probably the least-cringiest thing about her.

        • valorius

          Him. And thanks…I’d insult you back, but none of your posts are in any way memorable enough for me to formulate a fair critique of you.

      • valorius
        • roguetechie

          You’re definitely a man of strong opinions and exotic tastes lol…

          Not that I can actually say anything bad about your taste, I have some completely insane monstrosities I’ve built in my collection…

          I’m just too chicken to post pictures to the internet of my creations!

          Just as an example, I have an “assault pistol” build which is inspired by the chichizola machine pistol prototype Ronaldo Olive posted an article about…

          Sounds fairly normal right?

          Ah ha! Then you haven’t been to my workshop of parts kit horrors in all it’s amazon prime, eBay, and strike industries abusing glory!

          The parts list for the Chichizola looks something like this:

          1. Cz-26 parts kit: Bolt, magazine, springs, misc parts

          2. 7.62×25 bbl blank

          3. Stark industries pistol grip

          4. CNC machined delrin folding magazine well with steel inserts

          5. Various strike industries AR15 components that I’ve machined to fit uses they were never intended to fill then refinished

          Cheap eBay racegun holster which I thoroughly modified to fit this monstrosity and actuate the spring loaded folding magazine well automatically

          What you end up with is something with a vaguely space tech 9 vibe that uses the distinctive cz-26 magazine shape as a sort of tightening wedge to keep the magazine well tight into the receiver against the trigger guard!

          The whole package works frighteningly well, is a legal semiautomatic configuration, and has some internal improvements that actually make it a really good gun which doesn’t have the accuracy and general crappiness issues of most “assault pistol” designs.

          Yet I’m totally mortified at the idea of snapping some pictures and posting them on the internet!

          You have the courage to like what you like and post it freely.

          • valorius

            What fun is a collection if you can’t share it with the world. There will always be haters, they gonna hate, but you can’t even pay them any mind. πŸ™‚

            You should post your pix!

            Here’s another one of my toys: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/929ba3cdcaaae8b86be692b7cd5cad058d53554f637fffa9d51fb0fbe99b730a.jpg

          • roguetechie

            Honestly the factors which combine to keep me from posting pics are very complicated and are rooted in multiple very legitimate concerns/reasons…

            It’s something that I want to overcome though, and I think I’ve come up with a way to ease myself into it which will also be a very positive thing for enthusiasts, historians, and the firearms industry as a whole.

            What I am working at doing now is gathering the gear, developing a streamlined process and method, and making the contacts necessary to bring this about.

            Essentially what I am going to try to do is start visiting museums and private collections to photograph, 3d scan, properly dimension, otherwise measure and document physical characteristics, and begin building supplemental data sets on various gun designs.

            I literally want to go in there, disassemble each gub completely, use 3d scanning and digital measurement techniques to build a solid model of each individual part, hopefully document key subassemblies and provide notes on dimensions and geometric relationships within the gun which are critical to achieving safe and reliable operation, and generally provide enough raw information down to what type of steels heat treatment and surface hardening processes are used in each part!

            Basically, I want someone to be able to build a fully functioning clone of the gun with minimal reverse engineering and trial and error using the data I provide. Not only will this allow people to bring old designs back to life and or keep old guns running, but it will also be a very potent resource in the battle against patent trolls.

            As things stand now I see the USPTO granting huge numbers of patents to people and companies that have duplicated 30-130 year old prior art and claimed it as their own new development!

            Frankly, the industry right now is more concerned with preventing anyone else from making a penny off their “proprietary” innovations than actually using those innovations to make better guns which push the state of the art forward!

            I’d like to do my part to help break that cycle and get us past this maddening stagnation/technology plateau! That’s right folks, everyone who tells you firearms and ammunition technology have reached maturity/the point of diminishing returns is full of shit and perfectly happy to wallow in their own mediocrity!

            Anyway, yeah, I figure that maybe by documenting and posting historical stuff I can break the paralysis which prevents me from sharing my own stuff.

          • valorius

            Wow, sounds like a huge multiyear project. I hope you’ll keep us updated on your progress- you should probably start a blog documenting it all.

          • roguetechie

            I plan on not only starting a blog, but also a 501c3 nonprofit foundation out of it actually….

            It’s a project that’s very much about accomplishing a multitude of things simultaneously. There’s the living history aspect, the preservation of knowledge and design solutions In a way that doesn’t wall off the information from all but those who can pay to play/deemed politically reliable etc, and helps put people on the track towards STEM education

            Also helping fellow garage innovators, and finally to hopefully sway more fellow firearms enthusiasts and builders etc towards a more open source and collaborative dynamic so that innovators spend less time reinventing the wheel because no one will share any of the dozen solutions already developed in a given situation is something that I want to do my part to bring about.

            Not to mention the fact that it may eventually turns into a situation which allows me to travel around for several months every year for the purpose of fondling, disassembling, and etc really awesome guns I’d likely never have the opportunity to even hold otherwise!

          • valorius

            post a link to your blog on here whenever you start it. I’d definitely follow it.

          • roguetechie

            Thanks, I’m dealing with health stuff but I’m working on all this as much as possible when I can.

            Don’t expect miracles, and if someone wants to take my idea and run with it first they’re welcome to do so!

            For me, the important thing is that it gets done for the benefit of all of Us!

          • Brett baker

            GREAT IDEA! I own 2 Crosman AR lookalikes. The scoped 1 is an M417. The unscoped 1 is an M4-177. The difference? Somebody told Crosman don’t use our desination.

          • roguetechie

            Oh and BTW,

            One of the first designs I want to do this for is the Winchester SPIW!

            It’s a super low bore axis flechette firing drum fed FUDD GUN!

            My hope is that someone will take the documentation and develop a 5.45, 5.56, or Nathaniel’s 5.56 optimum cartridge concept and develop a gun that kills the mini-14 with fire!

            Plus, the 60 round drum designed for that gun is really exciting and looks like it should be very amenable to being 3d printed!

            Second on my list would be documenting an Ultimax LMG, preferably several different ones across the various versions, and most importantly the ORIGINAL 100 round drums!

            I know there’s at least 10 of the drums in private hands in the US, and everything I’ve read and been able to dig up about them says that they’re basically the best most reliable drum magazines ever made.

          • valorius

            They all sound like worthy endeavors. Good luck! πŸ˜€

          • Pete – TFB Writer

            I’ve been close to buying/suppressing a FiveseveN many times.

          • valorius

            The caliber doesn’t really make much sense suppressed from a practical standpoint, because it absolutely lives and dies via velocity, but it is a LOT of fun with subsonic 55gr loads. It also looks super cool.

          • valorius

            For actual defensive purposes as my night stand “What was that?” defense pistol, i used this configuration:

            YHM linear comp/skull crusher, 30rd magazine (not pictured), Viridian C5L light/laser, Elite night sights, and Elite ammunition S4M OTM ammo.

  • valorius

    What’s the MSRP for the whole setup with the MkIV included?

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      $699 + $475 if you buy the pistol from them.

      • valorius

        Thanks. So after the tax stamp and FFL transfer fees you’re looking at almost $1600. I have about $900 into my suppressed MkIII22/45 including the tube mount and optic.

        • Pete – TFB Writer

          There are definitely cheaper ways to go. But an integral has always been on my wish list.

          • valorius

            I think the integral looks the coolest. With Aguila 60gr SSS rounds it would actually be a viable defensive tool.

          • BraveNewWhirled

            Yeah ‘cuz those slugs are good only to about ten yards. But they leave a nice oblong hole.

  • Ark

    Building the ideal assassin’s weapon and calling it the “Sicario” does not seem like the best idea.
