Need Info on this one...Amphibian? Login/Join

Not knowledgable about suppressors (I do have a Silencerco Osprey in .45).
Thinking about buying this one.
RPB "Rup" .22lr on a host Ruger MKI, the transfer date on the paperwork is 1980.
Is it worth buying? Haven't discussed price with the owner yet, but seems like it would be multiple generations older technology.
Any info on this one would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Dan

Pass on this one. It most likely uses fiberglass and/or Chore Boy packing and ATF says we can't do that ourselves anymore. My oldest integral is a 1986 Ruger Mark 2 with integral suppressor. I got the whole package new from AWC. It works well but had to be frequently repacked with the tools they supplied and nowadays by sending it back to AWC if you don't have an 07/02. I bought a Amphibian in FDE a few years ago and I'm totally happy. Ported barrel bleeds off just enough velocity from high velocity 22's so you can shoot bulk ammo and not just expensive subsonics. It does shoot some standard velocity (target ammo) and some subs but not all.

P320 M17 (not the expensive
one) with Leupold DPP
P227 Tac-ops

Make sure it can be broken down for cleaning the suppressor baffles.

Factoring in the cost and ~year wait for a the stamp process, I don't suspect that would command too large of a premium.

It does look quite good.
