Looks good Shoot Summ
Keep us informed as to how well it works.
My concern is the extra weight on the slide and if it will still cycle correctly.
Also let us know waht ammo you are shooting and if the sight will stay set and still be sighted in.

Thanks

Took it for a run last weekend, ran like a top, surprised me.

Ran a couple of ammo brands as well, no issues.

Guess I need to read more, write less.

I dont mind tearing it down though, if it were to shoot better like that. Oh, well, the can wasnt really intended for it anyway, just figured Id try it there. It was really intended for the Kadet and the TX22.
Purchased my 4 422 at Walmart when they first came out. Passed on the 6 model due to looks. Always has been a great shooting gun.
Just found out the barrel bushing removal allows installing a suppressor. Sold my jam-o-magic 22 with threaded barrel and ordered the bushing wrench and an adapter.
Installed and it shot six inches high at 12 yards with suppressor. Make up torque shifts the POI. Higher torque shifts it counterclockwise.
Wrench manufacturer recommends 25 inch pounds. Mine will not make up completely with 2 ft-lb limit. But hand tight is 4 inches high at 12 yards.
Ordered another brand thread adapter and it shoots high also.
Wish I had known the 422 Family of guns do not work well with suppressors.
Anyone found a fix?

I have a question, did you remove the lock washer under the factory nut? If not pull it out as its not needed.

I haven't have any issues shooting my model 2214 suppresed using a EWK Arms thread adapter (installed without the factory barrel nut washer):


...and Dead Air Mask HD suppressor:


I recently purchased a 6" model 422 and ordered a second adapter from EWK Arms, so I'll report back in the near future with the results

Without the washer.

Several here in this thread have mentioned issues with POI changing with suppressor. Following Erics advise on torque it groups 4 high at 12 yards. Snugged up it is 6 off.
I could not have disassembled mine, purchased new, without the EWK wrench. End of the barrel stood proud of the bushing. Plus almost stuck gun in a vise to break loose.
Have made up tight, a little past seated, and seated then backed off a little. All shoot high with suppressor. Tried a DIProducts adapter too. All still zero to overtorqued factory barrel nut with just thread protector on adapter.l
I see adapters on many guns here, mostly the EWK. Do they shoot the same POI with or without the suppressor?

My 2206 Shoots to POA with or without my Spectre2, While my 2214 does have a slight shift of 1 inch or so. The 2206 has a DIP adapter while the 2214 has the discontinued EWK SilencerCo compatible adapter. I had picked up another DIP adapter for a 422 I no longer have. Now I'm planning on installing it on the 2214 but haven't swapped it out yet.

Success



Been trying different things to get the POI to be close between using a Yankee Hills 22 suppressor and a thread protector. Lots great feedback.
Last was reinstall the factory lock washer under the thread adapter. That was worse, but while trying to get the washer out by tapping slide on a Wheeler gunsmith block the barrel popped loose. Would not go back.
Used the thread adapter to draw the barrel back. Took some force with the Allen wrench. After what seemed like 20 turns it seated. Gave it another 1/4 turn for grins.
Made it to range to test. Shot a group of 10 that was about 1 1/2 low right. This with sight zeroed before barrel reseating. Screwed on the can and it was maybe 1/2 high right at 12 yards.
Done.

While waiting for the Tru-Oil on my Stevens 311c 16ga double to dry, I came across a 4" 422 yesterday being sold by a private seller thru an online classified ad for $325 and I just HAD to jump on it.
After some good conversation he sold it to me for $300 with a 48hr buyers remorse return policy. What a deal! I took it home and field stripped it, blasted it thoroughly with Brakleen and un-gummed the sticky safety, re-oiled and re-assembled. After shooting 100 rounds thru it this afternoon, I know I'll never get rid of it. Not a single failure thru both mags, and I was making shotgun hulls dance from 10 paces.
I'm currently collecting quality wood and metal .22 rimfires. This is my seventh, and I'm proud to have it in my stable. The sights are good, it's slim and light, and it hits what I aim at. It's not the most attractive of the bunch, but it gets prettier the more I shoot it.

Welcome to the club. Great find and a good price. The 4.5" is the sweetest handling of the bunch. Nice collection of 22lr's.

Feel the same

Even without the thread adapter my 4 422 is a keeper. Got two sets of the plastic grips, and a set of wood on it. Like many I think the plastic feel better, but this is a show gun.
Many have commented on the finish. All love it.

My barrel bushing was over torqued. From S&W. But was flush. Yours protrudes past the end of the slide. It is worth checking the tightness.
A real supporter of this family, EWK makes a special purpose wrench for the removal and reinstallation of the barrel nut.if loose, a dime supposedly works. Also some have used a fingertip to unscrew.

I made my own barrel retention nut tool out of a 1/2" steel bolt, a short length of aluminum roundstock, and a piece of solid copper wire:





It's worked well, easily removing the barrel retention nuts on my 2214 and 422

I also had point of impact issues with the thread adapter for a suppressor on my 422. After a couple hundred rounds it settled back in.
