An integrally suppressed rimfire rifle or pistol is at the top of my “hopes and dreams” list for 2017. And luckily there are already three or four quality options available. Even so, it’s always great to find a new contender. KGMade, based in Marietta, Georgia, is producing the EOS-22 – a barrel/suppressor combination for the 10/22 and 77/22 platform.
From a first-look, I’m guessing the EOS-22 is “hammer-silent”. If my math is correct, I count 12 baffles on this monocore suppressor, with plenty of space for gas to slow and cool between each segment. The design also keeps standard and high velocity ammunition subsonic (and quiet).
The whole setup looks awesome; I’m looking forward to learning more at SHOT in just a few weeks.
We set out to build the quietest and most reliable semiautomatic .22LR platform available, so we started with America’s favorite .22LR autoloader, the Ruger® 10/22™. Its simple design is inherently reliable, accurate, and user serviceable. After countless hours of R&D, we created the best integral suppressor for the 10/22™ on the market today. The EOS-22 integrally suppressed barrel upgrade, reliably keeps standard and high velocity ammunition subsonic through its Patent Pending design. It not only has excellent decibel reduction, but it also has a much more pleasant low tone than others on the market. The EOS-22 also does not need to be disassembled and cleaned like a traditional rimfire suppressor. Simply rotating the ultra-tough titanium sleeve cleans off the buildup. The EOS-22 can be fired thousands of times without requiring disassembly.
