Pretty sweet little pistol! Light too! Will be GREAT for teaching new shooters! Also got it for a light weight trail .22

Looking at the YHM Mite as the suppressor I want.

I just got the regular 22/45 with threaded barrel and fixed sites , Had the black lite version in one hand and the regular in the other... Picked the regular.
I like heavy guns.
Ordered the Fastfire 3 and Sam Lam upgrade.
Also, just sent the paperwork off for an SWR. Now the wait begins.

All that for what a new HK costs.

I stood there and held both the regular steel threaded and the aluminum one.. they were the same price due to a sale too. made it even harder. I ended up going light for teaching people to shoot reasons. and it will be a sweet trail or camping handgun.

I've tried P22's, Mosquitos, Glock AA kits, and now that I've got a 22/45 lite (with the Volq MkII bits in it), my search for a .22 pistol host is over.

Don't buy a Mite. Just drop the extra coin and buy a Sparrow or Prodigy the first being the best choice.


I have a stainless Mite and it is impossible to open after more than 100 or so rounds. The only way to clean it is "the dip", which works great but scares the shit out of me. <––––––- This only applies if you have the stainless model. The carbon steel model will dissolve with the lead.....

It is the same f*ckfest the rest of the MKIII's are, which is half again worse than the MKII's were because of the @#!@#!@ mag safety. Damn things shoot nice though. Seemed less picky than my MKII 22/45 as far as accuracy goes. Friend of mine and I ran a brick through his at the range a few weeks back and it never choked. It wasn't a big deal to turn clays into little bits and the little bits into dust offhand at 50.

I am starting to get that feeling as I am reading around on .22 suppressors. I was only going mite due to the price I might be able to get on one. But I know its not the quietest either.. I will pay more for that and the cleaning thing might seal the deal since .22 is friggin dirty.

Thanks!

THe Mite is the only .22 can I see people say they regret buying. I've used a friend's shop demo and it is definitely something that was meant to be durable and not much else. There are some other cans out there that are inexpensive. I hear good things about HTA but have not had a chance to play with one.

Don't get me wrong, it is a good can. Indestructible and is pretty quiet on both rifle and pistol. I don't even know how badly a baffle strike would hurt it. It is definitely a better rifle can than pistol can though. Side by side on a pistol most of the other cans out there are quieter.

I bought the tandem kross recoil bushing a couple days after I bought mine. They claim it makes the gun more reliable, which I haven't been able to test. But, your magazines will actually pop out like they should when you hit the mag release, and the way it simplifies take down (don't have to insert and remove the mag 3x anymore to field strip) makes it worth every penny alone.

Now you just need a Volquartsen MKII trigger and the bushing so you can remove the damnable mag safety. Seriously, the factory trigger sucks but the Volquartsen is pretty amazing- very light and crisp.

Yup, took it to the range today. Happened during the fourth mag I put through it... and it kept coming lose even after tightening. Aluminum has some great thermal expansion properties. I think someone forgot some loctite at the factory. I will be applying it as soon as I find mine.

Yep; luckily I noticed it before it fell off as I'd have never found the screw in the tall grass. I put a drop of lock-tite on it when i got home. I really wish i could find a better front sight for it though- something a little thinner and that showed up better against the rear sight. I must be getting older.

I own a mite as well. An aluminum one at that. It is a bitch to take care of. I keep mine coated with copper anti seize so I can open it when I am done shooting. He is right about it taking about 100 rounds to bind it up snug but not impossible.

Buy something other than the Mite. Buy once cry once.

wait until you get it. My wife saw the bushing and said "you spent $10 on that!?" The effect that it has on magazine removal and assembly/disassembly is more than worth it though.

skip the Mite. Has some of the worst reviews in the .22 can world. Buy once cry once.

I bought one of the .22 cans that Griffin Armament sells. I bought in when they first started. I think my can is #15. They are great to deal with and I have shot my can next to a Sparrow. Neither one of us could tell a difference. Plus side, the can I have is a QD model since it has a 3 lug attachment.

Got mine last Tuesday since my SWR Spectre II is sitting at the dealer pending paperwork.



I really like this little gun. Yanked out the stupid mag safety (replaced it with washers), put on some decent grips, loctited the sight screws, added a Volquartsen Exact Edge extractor (may not have needed it but I had a spare) and it's set.

After breaking in, it actually comes apart easier than my MkII Competition. Also very little muzzle jump, even with the feathery weight, and I think the barrel is too short to make even high velocity ammo go supersonic. This thing is going to be a joy with the can on it.

Come on, you ATF fuckers, sign my Form4

check out the yhm wraith. i have one and it is as quiet as a prodigy my friend has. although it is a bit fatter (it covers the sights on my p22 by just a bit), it only cost $250 and i have put probably 3k rounds through it and suppression hasnt dropped

Come on, you ATF fuckers, sign my Form4


SWEET.. nice grips too!

What is it these days? 6-7 months for standard nfa paperwork is what I am hearing. How much faster is a trust?



I'm not sure the ATF moves any faster, but at least you don't have to do all that fingerprint/photo/beg the CLEO for a signature garbage.

Mine are all in an LLC since they're cheap & easy to create in LA and I can add family later on if I want.

The grips are Hogue Overmolded that I pulled off my 1911. They.really make the little Ruger feel like part of the hand

I bought a 22/45 Lite on Saturday and posted a review over in the rimfire handguns forum. Nice gun but I plan to mod it with a better trigger and probably get rid of the magazine disconnect.

When funds permit, I'm looking at forming an NFA trust and getting my first can.

So if a Mite is crap, what can in that $200 price range isn't?

Be wary of the suppressor wars.

My suppressor in the picture above is the YHM Wraith ($325). I am very happy with it. I shoot it 3-4 days a week using Bulk .22 ammo and it seems all good to me.

There is that. I don't typically buy into the wars but honestly, when a suppressor has bad reviews across the board from end users...there's some truth to it.

As to the question. A 200 buck suppressor that's decent? Hmm:

Honestly, I wouldn't pay more than 350-375 for a .22 can. OP, make sure it's user serviceable and if it's sealed make sure that it's 100% SS so you can do "the dip". Have fun! I remember my first can. It all boils down to a few things IMHO:

Price
Suppression levels
Weight
attachment method.

Silencershop.com has the SWR Spectre II on sale for $299.

I'm waiting on the paperwork to clear on mine, but from everything I've read it's getting rave reviews. For $99 more than a "budget" can, I'd call that a must-buy.

That was going to be the original pistol I wanted, but then the lite showed up on the market. I had both in hand at sportsmans and went with the lite due to using it to teach and carry hiking and stuff.

Ill check your can out in a few weeks!!!
