Gemtech Suppressors, a subsidiary of Smith & Wesson, has released their new integrally suppressed barrel, the Gemtech MIST-22V. It’s a full barrel replacement for the .22lr Smith & Wesson Victory pistol.
Gemtech Suppressors has a rich history in the suppressor industry that dates back to the 1960s with Dr. Dater. With intriguing designs, such as last year’s complete M&P 15-22 upper, they brought the well-known suppression system to the Victory pistol with the MIST-22V.
The MIST-22V is an all-in-one barrel replacement for the standard barrel that features Gemtech’s patented G-Core monocore design. The 3-inch barrel along with the suppressor gives the full length of 8.95 inches overall, making it shorter than a barrel and suppressor traditionally attached at the end.
The barrel is made from .410 stainless steel, G-Core from stainless steel as well, and the suppressor tube constructed from 7075-T6 aluminum combine to give the unit its lightweight. The overall diameter of the unit tops out at 1.12” and the MIST-22V weighs just under 11 ounces. With a black Cerakote finish, the Gemtech MIST-22V has a clean look that will blend into the overall look of the Smith & Wesson Victory pistol.

“Due to its short (3 inch) barrel length, all 22LR ammunition with a factory listed velocity of 1,600 feet per second or less will deliver subsonic performance. G-CORE Technology — Patented Stainless Steel G-CORE design is durable, easy to clean, and light weight. Reliability — MIST-22V delivers the same accuracy and reliability with a wide range of 22LR ammunition that customers have come to expect from the SW22 Victory design.
Silent by Design — The Gemtech MIST-22V is the ultimate signature suppression system designed for use on the SW22 Victory pistol. The MIST-22V replaces the standard barrel with a barrel/suppressor combo, designed to provide superb suppression in a compact package.”
According to Gemtech, the new MIST-22V offers sound suppression and an overall length that the traditionally mounted suppressors can’t deliver. Gemtech has stated that the MIST-22V offers sound reduction that “you have to hear to believe.”
The Gemtech MIST-22V integral pistol barrel comes with an MSRP of $490 and is said to be available now.
