POTD — Suppressed Ruger 10/22 Takedown

Just recently we shared some video of a staff member with his Ruger 10/22 Takedown. Well…our good friend, “Officer Mike” decided he wanted to jump in the game. He has offered to let us try out his Ruger 10/22 Takedown with integral suppressor.

The integral suppressor makes for a pretty short package.

For our younger readers, that may not seem like such a big deal. But I lived in an age when suppressors were rarer than Glocks. And back then, NOBODY ever saw a Glock in real life! Hard to believe, right?

So let’s look at this for a minute. You take a Ruger 10/22 that is a factory takedown? Call a company known as Gemtech and say, “Send me one of them MIST-22 series of Integrally Suppressed barrels for my 10/22”.

Officer Mike’s Ruger 10/22 Takedown with Integral MIST-22 Suppressor and Vortex optic.

Once the paperwork is done, you get an integrally suppressed, semi-automatic rifle, that you don’t even need a gunsmith to convert! Wow.

The only thing that would have made the story cooler was if, “Officer Mike” told me about how he uses the 10/22 to shoot out street lights for SWAT standoffs. Unfortunately, the coolest thing this rifle has ever done is varmint mitigation in a residential neighborhood without ever being detected.

Designed for easy baffle access.

Pest control may not be get-your-own-theme-music cool, but it’s something just about anyone can actually experience. And that is pretty damn cool in my book.
