Try RWS subsonic 22. With my Silencerco Spectre II, all you here is the firing pin and it cycles my 10/22 without fail. Great for squirrels.
Wow I’m really liking the looks of that…and it actually is a pound (unloaded). Never knew it existed. With it cycling subsonic, threaded, laser, and 10 oz lighter I will likely have one in my future. Now if I can only just find one to put my hands on.

air pistol, find a used Crosman 1322. .22 caliber pellets, pump 1 to 10 times. Still makes some noise. plenty accurate and powerful, but stick with head shots. .22 with CB caps, BB caps, CB shorts, or CB longs. Wrist rocket with ball bearings work if you practice enough. Take-down longbow or recurve.

I carry a .22 with me packing around in the mountains. A suppressor would be nice with it but we can't have them in Canada. I find the extra weight is offset by the amount of grouse that I harvest with it.

I backpack into high country wilderness areas and hunt deer and elk with a muzzleloader.

I need a compact and quiet weapon to take the grouse encountered almost daily to cook in camp and think a quality air pistol may be the answer.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks
I would recommend a Crosman 1322 Air Pistol with the rifle stock attachment. Add a UTG Bug Buster Compact Scope and you have a package that you can head shoot grouse or rabbits at 20 yds. I use a 15.9 gr JSB pellet to get this type of accuracy

I would recommend a Crosman 1322 with the optional rifle stock. There are hundreds of modifications available for this pistol. I added a steel breech, which allows for mounting a scope or red dot sight. 14" barrel, trigger adjustment kit, and a better air transfer port. With these modifications I get 420 fps with 15.9 gr JSB pellets, dime size groups at 20 yds. I also have a UTG 3x12 scope mounted. It is loads of fun to shoot and plenty of power to take squirrls, rabbits and grouse at reasonable ranges.

Buck-rail.com has a bunch of 3d printed mods for crosman including a suppressor. Veteran owned.. good stuff. I have a 2240 and 1322 kitted out with his products as well as many other mods you can find on eBay.. it’s **** near endless.
UsingHaendler & Natermann Hornet Pointed Airgun Pellets, High-Impact, Super-Penetrating for Hunting.22 Caliber, 16 Grains you can take care of grouse during regular season with very little noise. As stated else where ensure air rifles are legal for grouse. I’m MT you can .. even for fall turkey now. The holster situation for these set-ups is a bit more challenging.
