A year and change after introducing its first-ever suppressor, Ruger is at it again with its new Silent-SR ISB (Integrally Suppressed Barrel) designed for the 10/22 Takedown.

Quickly and easily assembled to any Ruger 10/22 Takedown or 22 Charger, the Silent-SR ISB sports an induction-hardened breech with a cold hammer-forged barrel for easy takedown and accurate return-to-zero. The ISB is touted as reducing sound pressure levels of .22 LR to a 113.2 dB average with standard velocity ammo.
