I got am email today that Gemtech had their .22 ammo back in stock... Right on!!!! I'ma order me some for Christmas!!!!

NOPE! By the time I get home from work, less than two hours, it was already out again... Same thing happened last time....

My local gun shop, (who sells it pretty close to what it goes for online and he) can't keep it in stock either...

Its obvious this s--t sell like Hot cakes, be nice if they could up the production some...

This stuff seems to be the most quite, most accurate and most reliable in any of my .22s with my Sparrow...

The GemTech .22 subsonic is loud to me and my friends. S&B and Aquilla subs are far, far quieter and just as accurate when shooting a C-zone steel at 25 yards. One is usually not playing bullseye when shooting a .22 pistol with a suppressor.

I'll give you a nickel if you can get gemtech to tell you who makes it for them. We both know good and well that gemtech doesn't.

Sorry, that was sarcasm.

Just buy some CCI.

I did buy, ahem, a bit of CCI standard when it finally became available up at normal prices here after Sandy Hook fever died down, and right becore the election. I get a kick out of the CCI "Quiet 22". Its so laughably quiet. I may have bought enough ammo, components and guns to last until my grandchildren's kids need some....

The reason that I recommended CCI, is I'm fairly certain they make them and just brand them for gemtech.

Even if you look at the product specs/description for the gemtech at brownells (or maybe it was midway), it shows cci as the manufacturer.

Oddly, Gemtech's Silencer Subsonics average around 905fps for me from a 10" barrel, slower than CCI SV from the same barrel by 40fps, but they're slightly louder. Different burn rate I guess.

Gemtech 22 ammo has a 42 gr bullet vs CCI stnd vel's 40 gr.

Doesn't sound like much but it is 5 percent heavier.
