If it feels like everyone's getting into the suppressor market nowadays, it's because they are. SIG Sauer made waves by announcing a line of suppressors last year, and hot on the heels of that, we've now met the Silent-SR suppressor from Ruger. Wait, Ruger? Yes, you read that right.

Designed exclusively with rimfire cartridges in mind, the new Silent-SR is compatible with firearms chambered for .17 HRM, .22 Long Rifle and .22 WMR. As you probably know, Ruger's flush with both pistols and rifles in those chamberings.

Ruger CEO Mike Fifer recently paid visit to NRA HQ to share his company's latest new release with American Rifleman Editor in Chief Mark Keefe. You can get an inside look at that meeting in the video embedded above.
