I have a Sparrow, Specrete 2, and three Pilot 2s. Yes, I have three Pilot 2s.
I bought three of them because they're cheap, light, and quiet. Regarding FRP, Pilot is as good as the other two, to my ears. It's also probably better that my Sparrow, on a pistol, due to it's baffle stack (Sparrow is mono-core, which has worse FRP). And with it weighing it at about 2/3 the weight and size of the other two I have, it's my favorite for 22lr. You'll really notice the size/weight difference, when you stick these cans on a 22 pistol.
The only real negative of my Pilot is that it doesn't do 22mag/17hmr/5.7, which is why I have the Sparrow and Spectre. But as a 22r can, it's really hard to beat. Don't get too caught up in exact decibel ratings and such, as one or two DBs are hard it notice. I am telling you that these little Pilots are GtG, for 22lr. Actually, the Pilots are my favored cans for all my 22s, and the others live on my 17hmrs.
I would, however, check to see if AAC is bringing back their $200 store credits. I wound up also getting two EVO 9s (also around $300ea) and three Pilots, when the promo was running. I then used the $1,000 AAC credits to get a 9" 300 BO upper, a Geiselle trigger, and a few other things... they were running a sale on these items, so I pretty much paid nothing out of pocket.
