Nice set up! Can't wait for my stamp to come in.

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Ohub Campfire mobile app

Nice!!!

Sweet. That was on the list, but I went with the AAC Pilot.
That wait is killer. I'm thinking of another can, but don't want the wait. Plus, I'm apparently on an 'evil trust'. :)

Me like! You are going to enjoy the Spectre II. Mine was approved last year. I put a Griptastic cover on mine. Mine is on a Buckmark Camper & does not interfere with the front sight. These covers are sold on the Subguns.com forum. I have no financial interest. It keeps your can cool to the touch. I fired 300 rounds and was able to remove it with my hand. Sorry to ramble on so much.

Congrats. I'm researching a lot for my first can. Can you elaborate on why you went with the Spectre? Mine will go on a buckmark. My LGS stocks AAC and Silencerco. I'm leaning toward the Element 2 but I'm not sure yet.

Very nice!!

Shooting a Suppressed .22 is very addictive!!

:cool:

I was originally going with the Sparrow until a very knowledgeable friend advised me to go with the Spectre II. He was my SOT that had both in stock. IIRC there were a few reasons:
1. The o-ring and different baffles
2. It is also rated for the 5.7x28mm which I have (Sparrow might be the same)
3. It is full auto rated for .22LR which I shoot

Thanks. I'll check that out.

That plus:

It is user serviceable and easy to disassemble.

While researching, I didn't find any issues with a first round pop.

It is pretty quite on the Ruger 22/45 Lite in the picture. On my Savage Mark II FV-SR rifle, it is amazingly quiet. Quieter than a pellet gun...

I think you have that backwards. SparrowSS has o ring, and is full auto and 5.7 rated. I'm on month 6 of my wait...

Congrats! I am probably 8-11 months out from getting to take my Pilot II home. ATF is currently quoting 9-12 months door to door.

No sir. I guess the Sparrow & Spectre are the same on these points. Baffles are definitely different.

Chevytuff19 09-10-2013 22:46

Congrats! I am hoping to get my .22 and 5.56 suppressors' stamps in any day now.

ronin.45 09-11-2013 07:12

That suppressed .22 will quickly become your favorite gun!

Congrats.
