Since I plan to plunge into a .22 suppressor soon, I am also thinking of a suppressor host pistol ( this will or can get expensive fast!)
Any and all opinions are of course welcome.
What I am primarily considering:
I currently have a S&W 422 that is incredibly reliable and I understand a simple thread adaptor is available to replace the barrel nut for suppressor use
A Ruger 22/45 lite I live within 20 miles of the Ruger factory so if anything breaks or there are any issues can go to the factory for repairs easily
I see a fair number of posts or videos on 1911 style 22’s like the gsg also
I am not a fan of the polymer framed combat trainer types like SR-22, M&P or various walthers, but if these are a great choice let me know.
Captain - I have several 22 pistol hosts and by far my favorite is my Ruger Mark3 22/45 Lite....Accurate little pistol and the Dead Air Mask is almost exactly the same diameter as the Ruger barrel so they also look good together....Also have the Taurus TX22, S&W M&P 22, and Walther P22....Mark
Tje 1911 style 22 will be the quietest host possible because of their lock or dwell time. I have the Colt/Umarex .22 and it really is quiet with the Ruger SR suppressor, the Mask, Liberty Regulator and many others. I also have the Ruger SR-22 which accepts any subsonic ammo without fail... the Waltjer PPQ M2 .22 which is very quiet, probably because of its longer barrel but it sometimes does not like the weakest .22 subs unless the chamber is very clean.
Favorite ammo is the S&B subsonic, it's the quietest I have found.
P220 10mm Legion
P226 SAO Legion
556 rifle, my favorite 556
P320 M17 (not the expensive
one) with Leupold DPP
Browning Field Hunter and Rugers in 22/45 and standard configurations have suppressor ready pistols. I have a GSG 1911 22 and it is very sensitive to the ammo being used. CCI Mni Mags seem to work best with it. No ammo issues with the others.

My two favorites are M&P-22C and Beretta 87BB.
Ruger 22/45 or Mark II-IV would be nice as well.

Agree with the M&P-22C. Also, my older Mk III 22/45 Tactical was a great shooter. Sold it off in favor of a Mk IV 22/45 Lite which was a mistake. Not a fan of the Lite series after all. Will likely get another Mk IV 22/45 Tactical at some point.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Another vote for Ruger 22/45.
Mine is a older LITE and a host for my old Outback IID.
Everyone wants to shoot it and it still delivers "a mouse farting in cotton" noise levels!

I have had great luck with both the ruger mk series and the s&w m&p .22 pistol.
