Sturm, Ruger & Co. announced today the Silent-SR ISB for the 10/22 Takedown platform. The ISB, or Integrally Suppressed Barrel, is an addition to the Ruger Silent-SR suppressor family. The 10/22 Takedown rifle is the ideal platform for an integral suppressor because the firearm’s overall length doesn’t change with the integral suppressor. Suppressed firearms help to preserve our hearing, make verbal communication on the range easier and make shooting more fun.
The Silent-SR ISB fits any Ruger 10/22 Takedown or 22 Charger Takedown, and features an induction-hardened breech with cold hammer-forged barrel that provide easy takedown and accurate return-to-zero.
Reducing sound pressure levels of .22 LR to an average of 113.2 dB with standard velocity ammunition, a 10/22 Takedown rifle equipped with the Silent-SR ISB is as quiet as a bolt-action rifle with a thread-on silencer, the company claims. Its compact 16.12-inch barrel length makes the Silent-SR ISB easy to handle, yet it generates energy near that of a 16-inch-barrel gun .
Disassembly for cleaning is as simple as separating the barrel from your firearm and loosening the Silent-SR ISB’s single assembly screw using the included 5/32″ hex key tool. Once loose, pull the screw to remove all six 17-4 stainless steel baffles, spacer and front cap free of the sleeve for cleaning. The sealed baffles keep the fouling away from the serialized sleeve, yet easily come apart even after thousands of rounds. Finished with Cerakote, the Silent-SR ISB is engineered and built for a lifetime of hard use without clogged ports, seized components or loss of suppression that often plague other integrally suppressed rimfire barrels.
