I have the Saker 7.62 currently. Looking to pickup a rimfire can. Any suggestions?

I really like my Spectre II. I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't yet tried my Griffin Checkmate QD.

I think there was a rimfire suppressor thread a week or two ago if you want to look.
What are you planning to use it on? If you are using it on a .22 LR rifle, there isn't a whole lot of difference between the more popular ones. It's when you put it on a .22 LR pistol that you will hear more difference, especially on the first round (FRP - First Round Pop). There are some that are rated for 22 mag, 5.7, and 17 HMR and others that are not. Look at the FRP when you are comparing them.
I have a SilencerCo Spectre II and I love shooting with it. It's very good on the .22 LR pistol and awesome on the bolt action .22 LR rifle. The rifle is quieter than a pellet gun.
It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

IMO, the best rimfire suppressor is the AAC Element. I also have a SS Sparrow that is pretty decent, but it has FRP and is louder and heavier than my Element, I wish I had just bought two of them. You want to buy one that can shoot .22, .17 HMR, .22 Mag, and 5.7...not all of them can do that.

Agree with doc make sure you get one that can shoot all like the 5.7 my Griffin checkmate does not.
