SureFire Releases SF Ryder 22 Suppressor


Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high performance illumination tools, suppressors, and tactical products, has begun shipping its new SF Ryder Series Suppressors – debuting with the SF Ryder 22-A. Built to the same exacting standards as the Fast-Attach models, this ultra-lightweight and rugged rimfire suppressor optimized for .22 caliber pistols and rifles, features patented red-hard-anodized pig-nosed baffles that ingeniously reduce muzzle blast and make for easy disassembly and cleaning

“The SF Ryder Series is another example of SureFire’s commitment to cutting edge design and exacting performance,” said Lea Ramthun, SureFire’s Director of Marketing. “Its versatility, compact size, and ease of use and cleaning make it the perfect accessory for any .22 sportsman.”


The SF Ryder 22 features a unique pig-nosed baffle design that provides superior sound attenuation while still making it easy to service. Each baffle is Red Mil-Spec hard anodized to minimize finish erosion and makes carbon buildup easier to spot when cleaning. Built-in spacers also help reduce carbon buildup between the suppressor tube and baffle stack, and each baffle is numbered and indexed to make re-asembly simple.

“If you’ve ever done much shooting with a .22 caliber suppressor, you know that the carbon and lead buildup can be a nightmare, sometimes serving to fuse the pieces together and requiring a mallet and elbow grease to disassemble.” said Jeremy Stafford, Guns & Ammo contributor. “This wasn’t the case with the Ryder 22, as it seamlessly came apart even after exceeding the normal cleaning interval.”


The ultra lightweight SF Ryder comes in at a mere 3.1 ounces due to its fluted body design and rounded edges. A stainless steel threaded interface ensures the Ryder removes as a single unit, and its single-point cut 1/2 x 28 threads provide a secure attachment to any .22 pistol or rifle with a 1/2 x 28 thread pitch. At only 5.4 inches in length, and 1 inch in diameter, the SF Ryder 22 will not weigh down or obstruct your sight picture.

The SF Ryder 22-A comes with an assembly/disassembly tool, and suppressor pouch. MSRP is $469 and is available for purchase through authorized SureFire Suppressor dealers. For complete product information, visit www.surefire.com/sf-ryder-22-a.

    Looks like Surefire has been taking notes from OSS. I thought that the octagon design was a patented part of OSS’s suppressor line? Really looking forward to seeing OSS’s ideas on a pistol suppressor one day.

      I was going to say that you wouldn’t be able to patent an octagon, but apparently Apple managed to patent the rectangle, so what do I know?

    • Billy says:

      Apparently this has been brought up and SureFire posted a response on their facebook. Here is the part about the patent:

      “On May 21, 2013 the United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded SureFire, LLC two design patents for the exterior design (Patent #D682, 974 and #D682, 975). In our application we referenced existing suppressor designs as prior art including those with similar aesthetics. The issuance of both of these design patents to SureFire, stands as proof of the unique design and innovative engineering that differentiates the SF Ryder from any other suppressor on the market today.”

      Looks like the patent office did not think they are the same design.

    I think the patent attorneys will have something to say about this. Sometimes when you give someone enough rope….

    • SSD says:

      I don’t. I think you’d need to take a look at what everyone’s patents say.

  3. This is Russ Oliver, President, Founder and original designer of the OSS Systems inside and out. This morning has been interesting with the absolute flood of phone calls and email regarding this Sure Fire product. On February 11, 2010 patent pending application # 29/355,678 was accepted, On June 7th 2011 the US Patent and Trademark Office awarded Russell Oliver design patent #D 639,375, an Octagon shaped suppressor. I am a lead slinger and an engineer but not a lawyer, to me, an octagon suppressor is an octagon suppressor.

    By the official documents known to myself, OSS patented the first octagon suppressor. We are currently enjoying amazing support and success in the marketplace. If anything I am flattered other manufactures are getting on board the octagon appearance and concept. OSS will continue to lead the way in innovative suppression technology, our success has validated the need for a new, next century solution to suppressing semi-automatic weapon systems.

    My personal thanks to all of our steadfast supporters, we are here because of you.

    Best Regards,

    Russell Oliver
    President OSS

    Is it just me that sees the Surefire as a hexagon – six-sided – rather than an octagon – eight-sided?

  5. UVRC says:

    Sorry, my bad, I didn’t see the backplate. The Surefire is octagonal. My excuse is that I was holding a drink in one hand and wearing shoes; hence I couldn’t count over five accurately.

  6. Joe momma says:

    So if an octagon shaped suppressor can be patented simply on being an octagon can a spherical suppressor be patented? New suppressor will to submit shapes and sizes to a 2 year old to see if they fit in a pre existing hole in his block set?
