It’s not surprising that the Class 3 NFA market has burgeoned over the last several years. Knowledge is power and more and more citizens are learning that owning a silencer, short-barreled rifle (SBR), or machinegun is not only LEGAL– but a heck of a lot of fun too!

Silencers, or sound suppressors, are the most popular of the lot. Many Class 3 shooters start out with an inexpensive .22lr suppressor. They’re super quiet and you can afford to put a lot of rounds down range. One of the most popular platforms to suppress has been the venerable Ruger MKII/III series. Until now, most users have had to rely on expensive aftermarket threaded barrel assemblies, but Ruger has recently introduced this little gem to the market: The Mark III 22/45 Threaded Barrel. It’s ready to host the .22lr silencer of your choice– right out of the box!

The aptly named Ruger MkIII 22/45 Threaded Barrel won’t break the bank either. It’s comparably priced with other standard Mark II/III models. It features a bull barrel that is factory threaded at the industry standard 1/2x28tpi. The 1911 grips are interchangeable and easily swapped out for your favorite type– a huge plus for training. When you hold the 22/45, it’s just like holding a standard 1911 in .45acp. [click here for the MkIII gallery]

Ruger is offering two iterations of the 22/45 Threaded Barrel right now: one with standard fixed sights and another with M1913 Picatinny rails for mounting optics, lasers, and lights. For a limited time, On Point is offering our own in-house version: “The Quiet Professional,” featuring ERGO XTR grips and a Burris FastFire II red dot for $545 (suppressor not included.)

That’s all for now. Have a good weekend and God bless! — Evan
