How can I make my 10/22 LOUDER



Log in to see fewer ads
Iíve recently purchased a shot timer for practicing for Steel Challenge. I took it for a spin today and it worked fine with my 22/45 Lite. I clipped it to my shirt chest high and it worked great. The 10/22 was another matter. It would only pick up 2 or 3 of 5 shots. I moved it around and maxed out the sensitivity to no avail. Iíve heard a compensator will help but I donít have a threaded barrel. Do I have to change barrels and add a compensator? Or are there other options? Iím shooting CCI SV and they are great, so Iíd rather not switch ammo.

Wudda ya think?

Might need to use a watch with a second hand...

We shoot rimfire steel challenge and I like using a variety of guns. Using a tube fed Remington pump with standard velocity .22 shorts, the noise would not activate the timer at all. They ended up looking at the second hand on a watch and recorded the time that way.

You need to get an assistant to hold the timer at arm's length like the RO would do in a match. In reality you would be better off not recording the time and just try to practice shooting fast. It doesn't really matter what your practice time is or does it? It doesn't.

Must be at best a fun only match. I wouldn't be having much fun if my timed fire was recorded by someone looking at a watch. Just saying.

Muzzle brake. If your muzzle is not threaded you can get an adapter or a clamp on. It will direct the blast to the side or up depending on which one you get. Do not confuse flash hiders with muzzle brakes. Just in case muzzle brakes are legal in CA but not flash hiders. Oddly they do know the difference.

Take off the muffer and put on a straight pipe

Oops
Wrong forum....

Try setting the timer Out Toward the muzzle more? (NOT in front of the muzzle)

We've had the same issue in our Steel Challenge matches. In my opinion, not a good idea to hold the timer closer to the muzzle... that's potentially unsafe, and it is also distracting to the shooter.

I solved the problem by making some sticks to which the shot timers are attached. Either remove the timer for the pistol shooters, or just choke up on it. On most rifles, holding the shot timer nearer the ejection port is sufficient, but the stick also allows holding the timer near the rifle muzzle, while being unobtrusive and allowing the SO to be safely aside and rearward.

If you orient the timer so you can see the display it is apparent whether it is recording shots. If not, Just be certain to get it right near the end of the string, as time of the last shot is really the only one required.

Steel Challenge matches, don't take to seriously...

"Must be at best a fun only match. I wouldn't be having much fun if my timed fire was recorded by someone looking at a watch. Just saying."

It is a fun match, at least for most all of us. A few may take it seriously. I have used pump, lever, bolt as well as semi-auto rifles and have used revolvers as well as semi-auto handguns. Of course the times are longer. I like shooting what I have and giving everyone in the gun safe a day at the range from time to time. One thing I have noticed is that there are a lot of mechanical failures with semi-auto guns. I might have started with using a revolver rather than a pistol due to mechanical failures. I don't remember. But with the rifles, I think I end up using iron sights on the non-semi-auto rifles more than the scoped Ruger 10/22.

Put the steel buffer back in. The clack should set off the timer.

Switch to mini-mags. I wasted the best run of a stage last month because the timer missed a shot. First time I've ever had it happen. CCI SV, Tacsol Compensator on the rifle. I sighted it in for mini-mags and will use that next time around though I'll stick with the SV in the pistol.

Iíll try both of these. The shoot is tomorrow if it doesnít rain.

I donít know about a Comp as yet. I have a standard 10/22 tapered barrel. Iíll look around for a ďclamp onĒ one for starters.


Thanks for the help.
