The problem with the 96/22 is that they aren't very accurate, and the trigger is terrible. Sure ttshooter can fix the trigger, but it is still a stock 10/22 in terms of accuracy.

The theory is sound, the implementation was crude. That said, I wish Ruger would bring it back in stainless, factory threaded, with a better trigger.

I always thought the S&W 422 was such a cool gun and would make a neat suppressor host. Thanks for posting the picture!

The good news is if you are handy you can work on them just like a 10/22 and improve the trigger and the barrel accuracy.

That is a good point. I would like to have one again, but not enough to search one out and do the work.

No problem. I'm surprised they aren't more popular as suppressor hosts. Shot side by side with rugers and buckmarks, the 422 is perceptibly quieter as far as action noise.

Just FYI I got a magnum version a few years ago and turned it into a .17HMR. It is not my most accurate HMR but it will sure put 5 shots in an inch at 100yards. That ain't bad for a lever gun, huh?

I've often wondered about suppressing a Weatherby XXII. You have your semi-auto function, then with a flick of a switch you get your quiet "single shot".

Just behind the bolt there is a switch that turns the semi auto function to a single shot. After each shot you have to manually rack the bolt.

I haven't read through all the replies but I'll put in my favorite "Silenced" .22 and that is my favorite handgun as well. It is my Model 41 with the 7-3/8" Barrel.

I have a later PPK/S and I got a thread adapter for the P22 and it fits the PPK/S. It is a cool host!

BTW, would love to read how you went about putting the S&W sights on yours.
