The Silent-SR ISB replaces the detachable barrel on your 22.10. Although it is only a 10.62″ barrel as the silencer portion is integral and cannot be removed, it is legally a 16.12″ barrel so only a single tax stamp is required .
The short answer is: Yes, silencers affect a firearm’s accuracy – but not always in the way you might expect. Sometimes attaching a silencer can degrade your weapon’s accuracy. In other cases, you will actually find that your accuracy improves. If you see a change for the better, that’s great.
Integrated silencers use noise suppression technology built right into the gun barrel. If you decide to use an integrated silencer, you must either purchase a fully silenced rifle first, or purchase a fully silenced barrel for a rifle you already own.
Reduction of the sound pressure level from . 22 LR at an average of 113.2 dB with standard velocity ammunition, a 10/22 takedown rifle with Silent-SR ISB is as quiet as a bolt-action rifle with a screw-on silencer.
22 caliber rifle with standard velocity ammunition produces 140 dB sound. That’s loud enough to cause permanent hearing damage and physical pain.
Sealed rifle silencers require almost no cleaning. As we just mentioned, the high pressure build up in a suppressor blasts away any fouling. At most, a small amount of fouling will remain at any one time, but physics dictate that fouling simply cannot accumulate.
Some modern silencers using steel or high temperature alloy baffles can survive extended periods of fully automatic fire without damage. The highest quality rifle silencers available today have a claimed service life of greater than 30,000 rounds.
You can certainly use supersonic ammo with a suppressor, you just have to be aware of the fact that it’s not as quiet as subsonic ammo. The silencer can only do so much, and you’ll still hear the sonic boom as the bullet breaks the sound barrier after exiting the silencer.
Because of the timing. The Glock unlocks the barrel earlier than the FNX-45 Tactical. If you can delay the action unlocking, less noise will escape from the ejection port. Obviously there is no tax stamp on this non-NFA Maxim 9 so no need to wait.
The Maxim 9 is the world’s first fully silenced 9mm pistol that is holsterable and hearing-safe with all types of 9mm ammunition.
It is illegal to own a silencer in California, although exceptions are made for certain firearms manufacturers, peace officers, and active duty military personnel in the state.
