SHOT Show 2018 – TBA Suppressors – Sicario Ruger MK IV


TBA Suppressors was displaying their wares at a booth in the 3rd floor NEXT Pavilion, and although it was the name of this product that caught our attention more than anything, after seeing what TBA had to offer we came out pretty impressed. The Sicario is a .22LR suppressor designed specifically to interface with a modified Ruger MK IV to function as an integrally-suppressed pistol.

Despite being integral, the Sicario consists of a quick-detach two-piece system. The standard spec barrel on the Ruger is replaced with a ported barrel with a 1/2×28 thread pitch for mounting the monocore and sleeve.

The end cap of the Sicario is broached for an allen wrench, although TBA designed it so you can disassemble it using the Ruger magazine, if need be.

TBA also offers a ported adapter that threads onto any other 1/2×28 threaded .22LR barrel, which interfaces with the core and sleeve exactly like the replacement Ruger barrel. This allows the suppressor itself to be mounted to virtually any compatible .22LR firearm. In the gallery above, you can see the adapter, then mounted onto a S&W M&P .22 Compact, and finally with the Sicario suppressor mounted to the pistol.

    Naming your suppressor ‘cartel assassin’ is just juvenile and stupid.

    Ruger folks had probably never heard the word until the movie, and thought it cool. In Spanish, the word does not have a cool or refined association. It doesn’t refer to a sophisticated character (there are other words for that). Un sicario is a lowlife, uneducated gutter trash killer.
