Inland Manufacturing is introducing a brand new suppressor for .22 rimfire firearms it has dubbed the PM-22.

Constructed of 6000 series aluminum and weighing in at just 3.5 ounces, the PM-22 sports a black anodized, one-inch-diameter tube that is 5.5 inches long. It also has a ½ x 28 stainless steel threaded base adapter with a black oxide finish.
The PM-22 features a monolithic, X-design polymer baffle system core that functions either “wet” or dry. It can be fully assembled without tools. Cleaning is simple using hot water and Inland’s included dB Suppressor Foam, which reduces most suppressors’ sound by three to 10 decibels.

The PM-22 will retail for $189.95.
More from Inland:
Rimfire ammunition creates lower gas pressure, heat and flame than does centerfire ammunition. Inland’s patent pending polymer baffle system has been tested to 10,000 rounds (so far) without needing replacement. If baffle replacement does become necessary, the PM-22 has a lifetime warranty (NFA replacement and shipping rules apply).
Facts concerning this suppressor: Polymer baffles have less inherent harmonic metallic resonance than metal and they are produced using injection molding rather than with much more costly metal machining. This keeps the price lower.
Sound: The Inland suppressor keeps the decibel level in the low to mid-80s using subsonic ammunition and when shot dry. When combined with Inland’s patent pending sound suppressing dB Foam, the sound is reduced another 3-5 decibels (a 4-ounce can of dB Foam is included with each suppressor). To say it another way, with subsonic ammunition, only the functioning of the pistol’s action is audible from more than a few yards away.
