I recognize both stainless models are really too heavy to be optimum for a pistol but, I really like the ideal of the finned Diamond model for a AR-15 22lr or a heavy barreled varmint 22lr rifle.
At $295 retail, the aluminum Stratus model looks appealing for pistol applications at 2.4 ounces, 1 inch diameter, and 5 inches length.
Does anyone have personal experience with the new Tactical Innovations 22 long rifle suppressors? Specifically, the Quest, Stratus, and Diamond models are the ones I am interested in. I have an AAC all stainless Scarab but, I'm rethinking its use on 22lr's for general blasting because it is sealed. A lightweight aluminum suppressor that is user serviceable has some appeal and it's price point is about 1/2 the price of the sweet AAC offering. The larger Diamond looks like it was purpose built to go on a Kuehl 22lr upper and I like the fact it is finned for heat dissipation.
I have never seen or heard this generation of suppressor from Tactical Innovations in person but, I'm considering getting one. How do they rate in the real world? Is there any first round "pop" issues due to a larger size and volume in the first blast baffle? Are they hard to take apart?
What competing products out there am I missing? The Prodigy is nice but, it's a lot more money comparing the aluminum models against each other. The competition I see for the Diamond is an intergrally suppressed rifle but, those won't have finned bodies which probably aren't an advantage for semi-auto fire.
