That's mostly what I use, they are indestructible and compact. I have some that are as old as I am and still work perfectly. They can be taken apart to be cleaned as well. Mostly they are polished blue and look nice on blue guns. I posted a bunch of suppressor pics a few days ago under the post "Anyone have experience with Unique pistols?" Take a look. The attached pic is my 77/22 with PH steel can, the second is two BSA rifle projects with barrel profiles to match the suppressor, you can see where barrel ends and can begins. They're not the quietest but they are the prettiest and toughest. Not sure about US law to get them but they are the most common in England and have been around since WW2.

Thanks Slims, I kinda like my BSAs. The International wood was chopped from the original match stock/forend. You would not believe the pile of sawdust I had around/on/in me when I did that job. I ground it all away with a rotary rasp sent to me by stockmaker Claude Gatewood. If you know what the International match stocks look like you can imagine the work.

The 1215 below it started as a Wenig stock. It had a bad 'hooky' pistol grip that I reshaped and the area behind the grip cap was crappy as well so I reshaped that as well. The forend was an ugly, blocky thing that I wudda been ashamed to beat someone with so I reshaped it into the drop-belly schnabel. The lever was easy to shape, blowtorch and a little patience.

I have another 1215 that I plan to rebarrel to a CF, probably Bee. I want it to be exactly the same as this 22LR so I have arranged to send the wood back to Wenig to be copied exactly (I don't trust my limited skill to get the 2nd one the same as this). If you want a copy e-mail me and we can arrange something with them. I know what you mean about not finding nice wood, I searched for 2 years before biting the bullet and altering the Wenig stock.
