Barrel adapter for silencer

I´m thinking of putting a silencer on my 10/22 (legal in my country), but I´m not sure I want to cut and thread the barrel.

I would like some sort of slip on adapter with a thread at the outer end, and that attaches in some way like those slip on flash hiders, that let you keep the front sight as it is.

If anyone understand my description (I hope ) and could point me in the right direction, that would make me happy!

Been there, tried that...

Sorry to say, it dident work out.

It seem to be one piece to much there, accuracy was lost.

Now I use a sound moderator with a slot for the front sight (I use the original .720 "Sporter" barrel), secured with twin setscrews underneith.

Works great.

A can has to be in precise alignment with the barrel or not only is accuracy lost, you will get baffel strikes or worse. If you are going to run a supprressor, have the barrel threaded correctly or you could end up with a bunch of junk with a $200 tax stamp attached, at least in USA.

Nice. I'd like to get a can for my 10/22. My main concer is weight on the end of the barrel. I have a TacSol aluminum barrel and am concerned with the barrel flex having weight on it. I've never had a .22 suppressor but I know my 7.62 can is heavy.

My can weight is about 160 grams and it does not affect the accuracy of the rifle at all.

I even have the same POI with or without it...

So thats roughly 5.5 ounces. Not bad. My 7.62 is stainless steel and weighs about 24 ounces.

my answer to this is CCI conical ball longs. very quiet and accurate you could even go a further step and replace the action springs with very light ones so the soft recoil will cycle the action but manually cycling the bolt works for me. CCI CB longs arent very powerfull but I can tell you with a good square hit to the vitals it will kill a jack rabbit out to 70 to 80 yards.

Thank you DonaldD.



I wanted to keep the orignal barrel becouse I like the styling of the original looking 10-22 so I had to find a suitable silencer for the standard barrel.

I dident...

So I went to a handy friend who made it custom to me, a great design that works prefect.

I will try to get better pics later on..
