Gemtech Integra 15-22 Suppressed Upper Receiver

posted on December 22, 2020
Gemtech Suppressors, based in Springfield, Mass., has unveiled a new upper receiver group meant specifically for the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 line of .22 LR semi automatic rifles, the Gemtech Integra 15-22. The Integra 15-22 is shipped as a complete upper receiver package that can attach to the M&P15-22 lower receiver without any modifications needed. The upper receiver features an integrally suppressed barrel utilizing Gemtech's G-Core technology found in its MIST-22 line of rimfire suppressors.

The Integra 15-22 uses a 17-4 stainless-steel G-Core baffle system which is permanently attached to a 9" barrel. Combined, the baffle system and barrel have an overall length of 17.5". Both the baffle core and barrel are housed in an outer tube made from 6061 aluminum with a matte black Cerakote finish. The integrally suppressed barrel is covered by a free floating hand guard that features a Picatinny rail segment on top along with M-LOK compatible slots along the other surfaces.

The Integra 15-22 is sold as a complete upper receiver group ready for use, including a charging handle and bolt carrier. It is compatible with a wide range of .22 LR ammunition, but is recommended for use with subsonic ammunition for the best decibel reduction. The Integra 15-22 attaches directly to the lower receiver group of Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 rifles just like the standard upper receiver.

The Integra 15-22 integrally suppressed barrel has a diameter of 0.925". Overall length of the entire upper receiver group is 23.75" and has a weight of 2.7 lbs. The MSRP of the Integra 15-22 is $616. For more information on the Gemtech Integra 15-22 integrally suppressed upper receiver group for the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 visit gem
