    Compensator on a .22 pistol....

    I am thinking about putting a compensator on my Ruger SR22 threaded barrel I got a few days ago. Im not really worried about performance, I just think they look cool. does anyone else have one on their 22 pistol? What brand ? how do you like it? I found one on amazone for 12 bucks that I think I am going to order just because it looks cool

    If that's what you want then go for it. I personally wouldn't do it but wouldn't fault anyone for customizing their gun to make it look cool. After all - it's yours.

    Over 4 decades ago I spent some time at the US Army Marksmanship Training Unit at Fort Benning, GA. One of the events we trained for was International Rapid Fire, using High Standard target pistols in .22 short with integral compensator. I've seen guys who could put ten shots in a postage stamp at 25 yards in 5 or 6 seconds. For that purpose I suspect that High Standard had a good idea with that specific pistol.

    For any other purposes I can't imagine a compensator being of any usefulness on a .22 rimfire handgun.

    As I said, it not really for performance, I like the way they look. However, if I got an added benefit from it I wouldnt complain lol.

    The "cool" factor is certainly there, yet (IMHO) compensated .22 pistols are primarily dedicated to serious competition. While the SR22 is a fine handgun, it's certainly a stretch to consider it a "Match" handgun. As long as you're banking on nothing more than the fun-factor, comp away!

    I would never consider it a competition gun.... its to small, to light, and the trigger would need some serious work. It would really only be for the cool factor...

    My first thought was WHY? But since it isn't an SD gun, and you think it will be cool, make yourself happy.

    Roll with it. It's your gun, your money, and your taste. For what it's worth I also think they look cool.

    Although this one is a bit more, you get more for your money.

    When you're buying stuff for a plinker just because it looks cool...all bets are off. Just go for it, especially for only $12. Even if it's a piece of garbage I mean really...who cares? Enjoy it!

    The light 22/45 needs it. IMO it is a pistol designed specifically for a suppressor.

    The Browning Medalist comes with several different sized compensators, and they make a big difference. After playing with it for years the middle one stays on for me. It's a small edge, but it is an edge. It's a very distant third to a trigger job (1st by far), and an action job.
