In my quest to find a rimfire suppressor I have been researching just about every rimfire suppressor SS offers for sale. I am looking for a suppressor that is made from stainless steel or titanium (don't want aluminum anywhere), and has a sealed baffle stack to prevent crud from building up on the tube.

I looked at the Vapor and it's all titanium (sealed baffle stack) and overall the machining looks great. I was able to find a couple reviews and a couple videos on it, but haven't really found much information. Their website is broken and has no information on the Vapor or their warranty which makes me cautious to purchase one. The price is really good for a full titanium can. Does anyone here have any experience with it? I do believe it's a newer model so there's a chance many haven't made it out due to the backlog.

I have two buddies who each have a Vapor waiting on F4. Doubt there are many of them out in the wild yet. You should start seeing more info as they are released from NFA jail.

Should be a nice can.

If you've searched online, you probably already saw this:

It's a very nice suppressor that puts up a strong showing in a crowded category.

I'm interested in the Vapor as I like the full Ti construction but I recently went with the Q El Camino. The weight is on part with the Vapor at a hair over 4 oz which is pretty amazing given its length and despite having SS baffles. I also like the contained mount/rear cap. All early accounts indicate it's a strong performer and its a Brittingham design which gives me a lot of confidence.

The Vapor is very nice, but you won't regret your decision. The El Camino is phenomenal.

So far your review, one from TTAG (was more of a round up), and a youtube video I found are the only things I have found regarding the Vapor. I was actually going to email you and ask for more opinion on the Vapor. I wish Mack Brothers would update their website and also post their warranty info there. I am sure there will be more info once they start to get released from NFA jail since they are a newer can.

I researched a bunch of rimfire suppressors and gave a very hard look at the Q El Camino among others. I ultimately decided to go with the Vapor because it's a full Ti can and the price was $335. Seems like a great deal for a Ti can compared to the Q and others through my SS powered dealer. I did not like the purple-ish PVD finish on the El Camino (maybe it's different in person?) and I also didn't like the stepped down profile of the tube which is what ultimately turned me away from it.

I will post a review on the Vapor here in 9-10 months....if I can remember.

Happy to hear. Looking forward to it.

OP, I think your Vapor choice is solid. All Ti construction is sweet!

I had a hard time deciding but the ultimate deciding factor was the all Ti construction. The price was great as well compared to others. From what I have read/found about it, it looks to be a very quality suppressor.

In case anyone was wondering about the warranty, I called and spoke to someone there today and the warranty is lifetime for defect/workmanship (seems standard in the industry). The person I spoke to was very knowledgeable and was in no hurry to get me off the phone. We had a good discussion about the HPA, 41F, etc. Really seems like they are a stand up company who stands behind their products, which is important for such a purchase.
