Default Best rimfire can?

Ive been shooting rimfire lately, and always dislike pulling my Specter II off one, and putting it on another. Iíve been thinking about getting a second one. Is there a better choice that the Specter? Which rimfire can do yíall like best, and why? Most of my shooting is offf the bench, so weight is really not an issue.

Gonna be hard to beat the Spectre2. If I was buying another one I would be looking at the Dead Air Mask, or possibly the Surefire Ryder. Would be real easy to pick up another Spectre2 though.

Silencerco Osprey Micro it's the shortest, lightest, and quietest (based on 22lr) rimfire suppressor Silencerco makes. You can also take some of the baffles out to make it even shorter and lighter but then the sound rating goes to crap.

Best is so subjective. Best at what? What do you want it to do? Happy to pitch out some ideas, but give me some more info.

Foremost-quitest.

Weight and length really donít matter too much.

I like my Spectre II and have shot the Dead Air Mask. However I’ve been very impressed with my little YHM Stinger with is rated as the same as the others up to 5.7x28
