I'm trying to decide which of these two I am going to get. What are your opinions on which would be the better host and why?
Thanks in advance.

Super proven.
Prethreaded barrel.
Can get volquarsten parts.

Just my 2cents :D

The new SR22 has a threaded version now also. More of a traditional pistol look. More compact and way easier to disassemble/reassemble.

I have shot both. The SR22 is possibly quieter but the 22/45 lite has better geometry for man hands.

IMHO go 22/45 lite I love mine

The SR22 just came out last year, and the threaded version has just come out this year. I don't think there is really enough suppressed users out there to know. Vs the 22/45 LITE... Well, I like my LITE although it is just a tiny bit too light in my opinion, I actually prefer just a little more weight, but I'm keeping it.

If this thread asked SR22 vs P22 well... That's more apt and I really have to imagine the SR22 is probably better in every single way.

I'm leaning toward the Lite, especially now that Ruger got rid of the gold anodize and 'slide cuts' and went with black anodize and fluted barrel. I had just heard that the SR22 was quieter. Again, thanks to those that replied.

I have the 22/45 and a P22.....The 22/45 feels like a real gun when holding it compared to the Walther which feels more like a toy. Since my hands are rather small I'm thinking I'll pick up a SR22 since it may fit my hands a bit better than the 22/45 (was just scared to start running the hell outta my P22 when cans start arriving since I've seen so many people here talk of slides cracking on them)......I also prefer the traditional pistol look. Get both hosts and don't think twice about it......no such thing as too many 22's in my opinion.....I have more than I can count these days. The 22/45 does have a sweet red dot on top though so it may get more runtime than all the other pistol hosts combined.....yep, get em both!

That's funny because thats why I got rid of my P22, the rugers are a pain the ass also, but with a replacement trigger and the readily available extra magazines the rugers are a better choice IMHO. I do think that the P22 sounds quieter suppressed though.

What makes the SR22 or P22 a quieter host? It seems to me that the ejection port on the 22/45 is smaller/more enclosed. Is it just the 3.5" barrel versus the 4.4"?

Hell yeah you won't regret it.
Make sure you pick up a VQ trigger/bushing/sear ~60dollars

Ever find a gold nugget? Large amounts of people want to find and possess the gold nugget, but it i sreally hard if you don't use a tool to hep you find such kind of precious metal as they are always buried underground and it is hard for you to know where they are and how deep you should dig. And that is the main reason that why the metal detector for gold was invented and have help people a lot in hunting for gold nugget´╝î and it seems the gold metal detector is realy an reliable device.


What the F--k are you talking about?
