Smile 10/22 mag suppressed

So I have a few .22 magnums . Got a tricked out Ruger magnum with a VQ carbon and stainless barrel that's threaded, anyone tried running a can on one? Or one like it?

Personally I'm not a fan of suppressed 22mag because it's relatively loud & in my experience the round is not terribly accurate. Suppressed 17HMR on the other hand is surprisingly quiet, accurate, & can reach out fairly far (for a rimfire). If you shoot a muffled 17HMR you may forget about sticking the can on your 22mag.

Not a fan, blowback was intense, did not do much for the sound level either.......

As a lefty, I got a faceful of residue, only took 2 rounds to convince me that was not a good idea.

Do it. Suppress all the things.

The guys saying otherwise obviously have never shot a suppressed AR15. Totally worth it.

Suppressed 22wmr

$15.00 for a threaded 1/2 by 24 tpi barrel adapter from EBay onto a Ruger 96 lever and accuracy was not affected. Makes it more enjoyable without earplugs all the time. Good Luck

At the risk of stating the obvious, the purpose of the suppressor is to moderate the muzzle blast.

I have suppressed all of the supersonic centerfire rifles I use for hunting, and they help quite a bit.
.223Rem is /wonderful/ suppressed.

Semi-autos aren't my favorite candidates due to blowback, but in some cases that can be mitigated; note the partially covered ejection port on the M1 Carbine:

Having been on the 1000 yard line with suppressed .308's and 6.5 CM's I'll disagree with your "subsonic only" opinion, it makes a very noticeable difference.

Because the crack the supersonic bullet makes is minor compared to the noise of the explosion behind it. Unsuppressed my .204 is one of the loudest rifles on the line. Suppressed it sounds like a .22 LR, even though the bullets are still leaving at 4,000 fps.

The other major reason for suppressing is that for unknown reasons it more often than not makes any given rifle group better. Some people say it "almost always" does.

My advice would be to get a CF-rated 223 suppressor, if there is any chance you will later want to suppress a .223. .22-250, .204, etc., which is very likely to happen if you own such a CF rifle, or acquire one. Just be sure to get a suppressor you can take apart and clean, like the Banish 223, as that is a must for a rimfire (and, to me, very desirable for a CF).

A CF suppressor will be a little larger in diameter and heavier, but at 1.5" and 9 oz. my Banish works on rimfires nicely, and suppresses the noise better than a rimfire suppressor.

Crickets....... LOL Those rifles are rare enough you probably won't find anyone on here with any experience on suppressing one.

Donít have a 10/22 mag that I run suppressed, but do have a CZ 452 in .22 mag that is threaded that I run my Surefire on. As others have pointed out, the suppressor significantly quiets the muzzle blast to the extent that it is marginally louder than a supersonic .22 LR suppressed. Definitely worth it. I actually think my accuracy was enhanced, although my barrel was chopped when threaded and that may have had something to do with it.

I also have a Kidd ULW Classic (.22LR) that I use my suppressor on. I shoot a lot of HV through it. Subs are much quieter, but suppressor still makes a significant difference. Being a semi automatic, no way to eliminate action noise and residual blast thru case ejection, but again, worth suppressing. As with my CZ, it does help the accuracy a bit.
