    I have a suppressed 10/22 for sale. It is a integral type and I will post a pic if necessary bu t it is simply black with a fat bbl shroud around a turned down factory bbl with a whole bunch of holes drilled in ti and a pot load of shoe eyelets pourede in the shroud to " suppress " the noise . Also has a bolt buffer of something softer than steel , that helps the quiet factor also .

    It does not shoot for shucks , that is to say that at 25 yds a 3 inch group is good . I have not done any testing with different kinds of ammo , just off the shelf stuff .

    Same deal as the other suppressed 10/22 listed here , 200 buck transfer tax and ( well almost the same : ) )550 bucks for the rifle . Work was done by Scott Bell in Jacksonville Ark .

    I have too many rifles under way to keep this closet queen .

    i'd be interested, but it doesn't do a whole lot of good to have a quiet gun if it isn't very accurate...thats a good deal, hope someone jumps on it.

    Lovdasnow,

    You can shoot big groups "quietly " /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif I tend to exaggerate towards the negative when selling something . I sleep a lot better that way . Seriously though it will shoot 2" groups at best with the ammo I have used but I haven't played with it much and ammo choice plays a big part in rimfire rifles .

    I haven't seen any integral type suppressed 22 shoot better than 1.5 inches at 25 yds. Too many holes in the bbl I reckon and that has to play heck with the rifling . There is not a good way to chamfer the holes inside the bore . This rifle has few rounds down the tube and is supposed to get better as round count increases . I guess because the bore is being smoothed at the holes , don't know really .

    If you want a really accurate 22 and quiet a can type will do better .

    ya, I have a can on my volquartsen .22, but have always liked the idea of the integral.

    I have shot an integral bolt 22 that shot sub 1" groups at 30-40yds, and I do appreciate you being upfront with the accuracy issue.....good stuff!
    thanks
