Left: Anodized alloy SR22 over-barrel silencer.
Right: Same rifle, but with carbon-fibre over-barrel silencer.
You might not be able to see much ‘difference’ between the two, but once you get closer, the anodizing and carbon-fibre are clearly distinct – as in the two photos below.
So, why would someone choose carbon instead of anodized? Normally carbon-fibre is chosen because of how it looks. Also, I can’t put hand-grip into carbon fibre, as I can with alloy. Oftentimes customer’s want me to do some cool anodizing effects, which just can’t be done on carbon. Weight is around the same between carbon and alloy. I also have some Kevlar (yellow/black) that I will make a custom silencer out of at some stage in the future.
Below: Anodized over-barrel silencer – as in photo above-left.
Below: Carbon-Fibre over-barrel silencer, as in above smaller photo top – right.
This is the synthetic muzzle of a carbon-fibre silencer I made. Muzzle is ported and fully threaded / take apart.
Below: I can make SR22 silencers to be ‘half over-barrel’ where it fits just inside the existing ported shroud, and still allows you to use the bidpod/sling stud, or full over-barrel to the breech.
Below: Type II anodized silencer in rich deep black.
Below: My own SR22, fitted with rubber-coated 3-9×40 for longer range shooting than offered by the Tactical 2x scope in photos below. This silencer is designed for optimal noise suppression, and is incredibly quiet, without porting the barrel.
Having worked on many customer’s SR22’s, I finally bought one for myself.
This page will display my own silencer and modification projects. Use my website search engine to view other SR’s.
Below: Rifle kitted, Weaver rails, Cree torches, red-dot tactical scope, pods and custom carbon-fibre over-barrel suppressor.
Below: Out of the box. Although I will probably end up getting a tactical stock, this one has a hollow storage compartment.
Below: I wanted to make the muzzle compatible with the Ruger Red Logo.
