Silencers are more popular than ever and Ruger wants to help you join the “Cool Kids” club. They are now selling an SR22 Threaded Barrel Kit for their rimfire guns. Between the modular grips, adjustable sights, multiple magazines, and overall accuracy, it has been a great selling firearm for Ruger since its introduction. Ruger does have one offering with a threaded barrel from the factory, but they did not want anybody who owns the other 7 models to feel left out. So they now offer a factory SR22 threaded barrel kit for everybody. Ruger had this to say about their newest product:
This Genuine Ruger® Factory Accessory is compatible with Ruger® SR22® pistols bearing serial numbers 361-7XXXX and higher. The threaded barrel accepts any 1/2″ – 28 (Class 2A) muzzle device – including the Ruger® Silent-SR™. This kit contains a factory-manufactured stainless steel barrel for optimal fit and function. Barrel changing is quick and easy with no gunsmithing required. Barrel cap, adapter and wrench included. Made in the USA.
So with this kit you can dive into your first (or maybe your 5th) silencer. With the universal 1/2″ – 28 TPI you could add any brand silencer you want or run an entire Ruger setup with their SR22, threaded barrel kit and Silent-SR™.
The addition of this product is likely in response to the growing popularity of silencers and to help push their newest and only silencer, the Silent-SR™. The product category of silencers has been one of the fastest growing in recent years in comparison to firearms, optics, ammunition, and many others. So this is a logical move for Ruger.
