22 mag suppressed?



Log in to see fewer ads
I am thinking about having my 452 threaded. Maybe shorten the barrel to 18” while I am at it. My suppressor has stainless baffles, rated for magnum cartridges, so no issues there.

I have several rifles and handguns in .22 LR that are threaded. I often shoot HV in those guns, so I know all about sonic crack and realize that a .22 mag will have it.

Would like to hear from those that run their .22 mags suppressed what their experience has been, if worthwhile, and whether they would do again. Cost isn’t that big of a consideration, just looking to get more use out of that rifle. That rifle seems particularly loud. Hoping it will quiet it down to .22 LR noise levels.

22mg suppressed through my SWR Spectre2 is a joy to shoot. Close to 22subsonic unsuppressed. I shoot my rimfire 99% always suppressed since getting a can. Only way to go.

On you tube, 22 Plinkster runs the Volquartsen Scorpion 22 Magnum suppressed if you are interested.

I have an Aklys Defense Kopis in stainless and it makes 22mag enjoyable to shoot. No shift in POI except when I use 22WMR subsonics, then they hit low and right. I say find the rimfire can you want that's rated for 22 mag and rock on.

I have never seen 22WMR subsonic. I didn't even know it existed.

Winchester makes it. I bought a brick on impulse. They dropped the ball bad. Uses a 40gr lead bullet. No different than 22lr subs. Only benifit is if all you own is a magnum. 2cents

Completely agree and I did the same thing: impulse bought BOXES! I envisioned using it during small game season for squirrel and swap to normal loads if I saw a feral hog. Hasn't worked that way yet. 😒

Now if they would do a 22lr cacse length and a 1050fps 60-70gr high BC bullet, I'd have a gun dedicated to it.

I have two, a Ray Vin AR upper in .22 WMR, and a Ruger American Rimfire. The Silencerco Sparrow SS makes it much more pleasant to shoot.

Dropped my CZ 452 off at the gunsmith on Tuesday. Cutting it back to 18” while being threaded. Should have it back in 2-3 weeks.

Been thinking I should have my .17 HMR threaded also. Did a little research and most report better results with the HMR than with the .22 mag. Might as well get maximum use out of my Surefire Ryder.

YES, all suppressors for firearms require it in the US.

Got her back today. Haven’t had a chance to shoot, but happy with the balance, etc... Will update after range session.
