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.

Thanks. I'll check that out.

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.

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

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...

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

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.

I just wrote a letter to both US Senators and my House representative about the long wait to process a few documents just so taxpaying Americans could do a property transfer. Advised them with all the billions of dollars the federal government wastes couldn't they get the BATFE a couple more secretaries.
