Suppressing a 10/22

So I need to point out supressors are legal NZ.
(we are not allowed pistol grips, filding stocks, flash sppresors or hi cap mags)

Who has suppressed one of these, how have you found it?

I've suppressed mine. It is quite pleasant to shoot and quite comfortable without hearing protection.

It is nice. In order to keep it real quiet you need to shoot subsonics out of it. You can still get a crack when shooting into certain terrain features even with subsonics. Kind of like a cap pistol. When shooting into the ground in front of me I get a click and a thunk when it hits the ground.

I would suggest

- Thread the best barrel you can find
- Get suppressor that you can clean yourself
- Screw on
- Have fun
- Clean occasionally

I wonder is there a big hassle in NZ like in the states?

I wish it was like that here, if it didn't cost me as much as the silencer to obtain the ability to own the silencer I would probably have one because it would be less disruptive to our neighbors. As it stands, it cost too much for me to care enough about what they think of the noise...

One of the loudest noises shooting the 10/22 suppressed is going to be the cycling of the bolt. If you use subsonic rounds there won't be the supersonic crack but you probably already know this.

Than I am jealous.

In the US it is kind of like trying to buy gun in Europe. You have to present a passport photo and fingerprints with paperwork signed off on by the actual County Sheriff, pay an extra $200, wait 4-10 months and then hope they don't lose it or it comes back with an error. Also suppressors are often REALLY expensive out here for what they are.

I blame TVs and movies for misinforming people into this state.

shivers, they go from NZ$50 (US$35) here up to NZ$500
We can supress any rifle we want
But cant put a pistol grip if it can hold more than 7 rounds

I bought a 10-22 tactical which comes with threaded barrel and flash suppressor. I already had a YHM mite. With subsonic ammo it's almost Hollywood quiet. The "clack-clack" of the bolt is audible over the report from the muzzle. It's still not a tack-driver but darn close to it.

The clacking noise you hear is the bolt hitting the rear pin. If you replace the rear pin with the proper synthetic the clacking sound will disappear.

I have yet to see a "real" $50 suppressor in the US. The cheapest ones are about $200 before taxes.

The Ruger Tactical 10/22's are threaded too long. They need a spacer as the thread length is the same as AR-15. Muzzle is right next to the blast baffle.
Before and after pictures of the Ruger:

They make an integrally suppressed model as well if that tickles your fancy...
