Silencerco Sparrow: Rental Range, Extreme Volume Torture Test
Roy L
What happens when you put 20,000 rounds through a range rental suppressor?  In the case of well designed and well built Silencerco Sparrow: nothing but reliable operation!
Here at West Coast Armory we have a rental suppressed .22 available for rent, and it's been extremely popular. We estimate that conservatively, 20,000 rounds have been put through this suppressor!
Most .22 suppressors need to be cleaned regularly to ensure good performance, as .22LR is a dirty and fouling round which leaves lots of deposits in suppressor baffle chambers.  As volume is decreased in these chambers, suppressor become less and less effective.
Cleaning most other .22 suppressors can be difficult though, as all that build up makes removal of the components for cleaning tough.  The Silencerco Sparrow's innovative design utilizes a thin steel sleeve which prevents the suppressor core from binding to the outer tube!  Even after 20,000 rounds, this suppressor comes apart easily for cleaning.
If you are looking for a sound suppressor, .22LR is a great caliber to start with given its low costs, and how effective .22LR suppressors are with subsonic ammunition.  The Silencerco Sparrow with its premium features and innovative design would be an excellent choice for end users!
