A year and change after introducing its first-ever suppressor, Ruger is at it again with its new Silent-SR ISB (Integrally Suppressed Barrel) designed for the 10/22 Takedown.

Quickly and easily assembled to any Ruger 10/22 Takedown or 22 Charger, the Silent-SR ISB sports an induction-hardened breech with a cold hammer-forged barrel for easy takedown and accurate return-to-zero. The ISB is touted as reducing sound pressure levels of .22 LR to a 113.2 dB average with standard velocity ammo.
Its 16.2-inch barrel length makes the Silent-SR ISB easy to handle, and the relatively long barrel — compared to other integral suppressors — means the bullet generates energy nearly equivalent to that of a 16″ gun for consistent and accurate performance on target. The pushed-cone baffle geometry has been stretched to utilize the volume under the barrel, maximizing gunshot suppression without disturbing the bullet’s travel, the press release says.
To disassemble, you simply separate the barrel from the firearm and loosen the Silent-SR ISB’s single assembly screw using the 5/32″ hex key tool included in the package. Once loose, pull the screw to remove the six 17-4 stainless steel baffles, spacer and front cap from the sleeve for cleaning. The sealed baffles help keep fouling away from the serialized sleeve, but they easily come apart even after thousands of rounds.
Sporting a Cerakote finish, the Silent-SR ISB is perfect for training, plinking and small-game hunting. MSRP is $629.
