First Look: Gemtech Integra 15-22 Integrally Suppressed Upper Receiver

posted on January 1, 2021

The Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 is one of the most-popular options for an AR-pattern rifle that shoots .22 LR ammunition. Gemtech Suppressors recently released the Gemtech Integra 15-22, a new integrally suppressed upper receiver that is designed to work exclusively with Smith & Wesson’s M&P15-22 rifle. The Gemtech Integra 15-22 ships as a complete upper receiver group that offers an unbelievably quiet shooting experience in a compact package that can quickly be added to the M&P15 platform.

Anthony Proto, Product Manager for Gemtech, said, “Gemtech has designed a suppressed upper receiver to offer Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 owners the ultimate suppressed rimfire experience. A rimfire rifle is a great way to introduce someone to the shooting sports and is a great way to practice marksmanship skills and enjoy time at the range. The new Gemtech Integra 15-22 integrally suppressed upper receiver can be quickly and easily mounted onto the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 lower receiver to deliver an incredibly quiet shooting experience in a rimfire package that’s enjoyable for all ages.”

The Gemtech Integra 15-22 has a 17-4 stainless-steel G-Core monocore that is permanently attached to a short, 9-inch barrel. The result is an easy-to-shoot rifle with a compact, 17.5-inch overall barrel length. Both the core of the suppressor and barrel are enclosed in a 6061 aluminum outer tube with a durable matte black Cerakote finish. The Gemtech Integra 15-22 upper receiver group functions reliably with a wide variety of .22 LR ammunition and comes complete with the bolt and charging handle assemblies. For best results, the Gemtech Integra 15-22 should be used with subsonic .22 LR ammunition for maximum sound suppression. 

The Gemtech Integra 15-22 integrally suppressed upper receiver has an MSRP of $616, and more information on this item and other products from Gemtech is available at
