    I currently have a 4" Ruger Mark III with a stainless bull barrel.
    What I am thinking of doing is either selling it and buying a new Mark IV with threaded barrel, or getting a new upper for the Mark III and turning it into an integral suppressor.

    The question here is, what is your experience with integral suppressors, especially with .22LR firearms?

    I do already own a dedicated .22LR can, which i keep on my Ruger Charger.

    I'd like this to also be a general information thread about integral suppressors. So, please, give me some experiences, wether good or bad.

    I'm a fan of integrals.But since you have a .22 can already I'd just get another complete pistol. I went the upper route for a while, just to find a lower later to put on it. Having 2 complete pistols was a better way to go for me.

    I agree with seandavid55, I dig integrals but if I was to do one I wouldn't do it for a pistol since I have a .22 can. I would do one as a dedicated 10/22 type setup.

    How easy do they come apart for cleaning? With the lead buildup from .22 rim fire, ease of cleaning would be a concern for me.

    I have a threaded upper I could part with. Like the above I like a crew on suppressor, easier to deal with and clean.

    I love ruger, but I would look into smith and wessons, victory. Seen one at gun show threaded for 365. I doubt you can get s mark 4 for that price.

    As far as intergal goes, its worthless too me until HPA passes. Then evertything I own will be intergal, but unti then No from me. If you do decide to cut barrel have Tornado Technology, cut thread and crown, but by then you could have bought victory.

    Thanks so far for the feedback. Looking to completely move away from the Mark III and have been searching around the gun stores, but no real stock on the threaded Mark IVs.

    That being said, Innovative Arms has released some initial details on a new integral Mark IV Target.

    Look at those pictures. :drool:
