I bought my Mist barrel years ago, ported. I cleaned it after each range day. But, it's nearly impossible to remove the molten lead deposits on the inside of the tube. I tried dozens of brushes, and solvents, even Scotch-Brite. I was ready to look for a reamer to fit it when I heard that Gemtech would swap for an un-ported barrel. So, either keep it ported and give up the ability to dis-assemble, or switch to un-ported. I switched, happily!
I still like the Mist for the fact that it looks just like a bull barrel. You wouldn't guess it was suppressed without a close inspection. It shoots well.
I also have 10/22's with thread on suppressors. It's easy to use one suppressor for pistols and rifles.
You might also consider another option: A Ruger Charger Pistol with the Copper Custom Brace Adapter https://coppercustom.com/copper-custom- ... ce-adapter
That gives you a short maneuverable quiet 10/22 without the $200 tax stamp or 1-year wait. Also, it's a PISTOL, legal to conceal with my CHP.
Whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy it!
