Shooting rimfire is an inexpensive and fun way to train. Suppressors by extension make that training a little bit more comfortable and a whole lot more fun. Maxim Defense is proud to announce its own addition to the rimfire suppressor market with the introduction of the new DRF-22. The DRF-22 or “Direct Thread Rimfire” suppressor is a monocore suppressor that has been specifically designed to eliminate first-round pop and purposefully designed to increase and maximize both the blowback and cyclic rate of the firearm that it’s attached to.

The DRF-22 – Maxim Defense’s New Direct Thread Rimfire Suppressor
Why the DRF-22? Because the DRF-22 suppressor is specifically designed to minimize the increase in cyclic rate and gas blowback of a suppressed rimfire firearm.
Primary design features include the significant reduction of sound signature, decreasing flash signature, reduction of recoil, and increasing the accuracy of the suppressed firearm.
And let’s be honest. Who wouldn’t want a suppressed .22? With the right ammo, the most you will typically hear is the action of the bolt. What’s not to like about that?
The new suppressor will feature a simple three-piece design consisting of the end cap, mount, and monocore interior. The DRF-22 is completely user-serviceable and doesn’t require any specialized tooling or gunsmithing services. Even if you somehow manage a strike on the interior core, you can have the core sent back to Maxim for replacement without the need for the ATF to get involved as it isn’t a serialized part.
A couple of other neat features that the DRF-22 includes are its ease of removal even after running many rounds through it. According to Maxim, the DRF-22 will not only stay secured to the firearm but when it comes time to remove the suppressor for cleaning, only minimal effort will be required to unthread it.

Maxim Defense DRF-22’s most defining feature is its elimination of first-round pop. Maxim Defense claims that there is “no detectable first-round pop” from the suppressor by optimizing both the entrance chamber volume and baffle geometry to fine-tune the fluid resistance to eliminate first-round pop without the use of a Maxim Defense M baffle.
