Suppressed .22 rifle

Been thinking about getting a suppressed ruger 10/22 if US v Stewart doesnt bear any worthwhile fruit.

Seen prices online from over 500 to over 1000 for a completed rifle with an integral suppressor. Was thinking maybe I could get a suppressed rifle and go possum blasting, or something similar.

Anyone know what differences between the various suppressor brands? How is the noise on a suppressed 10/22? With tinkering, can you get rid of the clacking from the action cycling? How does it compare to an unsuppressed 10/22 using subsonic ammo?

ps- What I really want is a suppressed select fire P90, but that isnt currently legal

Suggest you check out American-Manufacture.com Sentry model .22 rifle. It has an integral supressor and is built on around a Savage bolt-action .22 with a scope mounted on it. I paid <$400 (+transfer) for mine and it works very well. With standard velocity I can hear the paper target tear when the bullet hits it...

Under 400? Hmmm. They list it at 450. It looks like a pretty good deal all the same.

Thanks.

I favor the 77/22 over the 10/22. You get a bit more accuracy with the bolt action, provided you upgrade the factory sear to an aftermarket one like one made by Volquartsen. AWC makes a fab suppressed 77 or 10/22.

Yup. Slap in a bolt buffer.

Who is AWC, and do you have a link? I just seen a 10/22 yesterday with a Volquartsen barrel with a gemtech suppressor on it, and it made me start thinking about one as well. I didn't ask the price on this particular rifle setup, but they made it quite clear it was an expensive 22.

AWC is expensive as hell.

I found low prices at:
http://www.revelationarms.com/suppressors.html (600 complete gun)
http://www.paladinarmory.com/22Rifles.htm (525 for barrels, 700 for gun)

I am thinking about giving paladin a call since they are driving distance. If I do this, I will probably hack up a bullpup stock and make a bullpup suppressed 10/22.
