10/22 action too loud

I just got my supressor threaded onto my 10/22 and the action is way too loud. Is there any way to lessent the bolt slap?

An aftermarket bolt buffer should help quiet the action down some

yup that looks what I need. thanks for sharing the info. I wonder if one of those buffers plus a weaker recoil spring would would be even better?

When I read the tital I figured that you must have gotten your can in , its amazing how much noise a little semi auto makes when thats all you can hear huh ?

That little buffer will help alot for the noise but you will still get a little bit of noise but you have metal to metal contact so thats not gonna go away.

What brand and model suppressors did you get?

It is a liberty sparrowhawk, but i do not know much about them. It has k baffles kinda like the ones you make. I do know that cb caps are very very quiet through it. If I could find a magazine that would feed them I wouldnt worry about a buffer because the cb caps will not cycle the bolt. I would just work the action manually. In hindsight I wish that I had put this on a bolt action. The only bolt action .22s I have are all for ARG competition and I didnt want to mess any of them up so I went with what I had on hand.

CCI CB longs should be able to feed with the magazine, but as you previously noted you'll need to manually work the bolt with every shot.

I've never shot with a supressor before, but I'd be willing to bet it would produce next to no sound.

I fixed it I removed the return spring and used a belt sander to weaken it substantially. Then I threaded a very strong short spring onto the rear of the original spring. The short spring keeps it from slapping rearward as hard and the weakened return spring doesnt slap the bolt forward as hard. While I had it apart I put everything on the buffer and it made a nice change in the trigger pull. Still a little hard but it breaks nice now.
