SWR SPECTER II
Took 7 1/2 months to get the stamp.
Nice set up! Can't wait for my stamp to come in.
Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Ohub Campfire mobile app
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.
Shooting a Suppressed .22 is very addictive!!
Very nice! S-w-e-e-t...
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.
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...
Maybe not. From the SWR website:
Full Auto Rated for .22 lr
Multi Caliber Rated
Durable Stainless Steel
User Serviceable with CTA Baffles
Built like a tank
O-Ring engagement to keep barrel threads clean and the silencer securely mounted
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.
Congrats! I am hoping to get my .22 and 5.56 suppressors' stamps in any day now.
That suppressed .22 will quickly become your favorite gun!
just picked up my spectre2 tonight !!!!
after a year . grrrrrrrr
got a 9 and 45 im still waiting on .
my dealer had a shooter get together last year . to come out and try different suppressor . the spectre 2 won hands down to me over the sparrow . sparrow got a loud first round pop . the spectre is quiet and keeps getting quieter
