    I've got a gun works on my Anzhultz 17 cut the barrel back to 18 " fired enough to end the lives of about 400 bunnies with it, never cleaned the can and have no probs. al up close to 1000 rounds with all the pissing round I do, cats, magpies, hares and target and misses cheap option. Buy the can first and get the thread cut to the thread in the can for a good tight fit!
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    I have tried a Bunny Buster on mine, light but not that quiet. I now use a Parker Hale a .22lr silencer but is all steel and narrow but really cuts all the boom out. I would go steel, the MAE rimfire is only 200grams same as the Parker Hale.

    I had robbie at gunworks Shorten my marlin down to 17inches and chuck a 22 Magnum suppressor and it still shoots like a laser, just a significantly quieter laser now. Couldn't be happier

    Apologies for the outstanding grammar, autocorrect is wreaking havoc

    I used a Gunworks with great effect. Mae were a bit heavy when I used one last time but that was a very old model, new ones could well be worth a look. I still get Gunworks as they are handy to us and I know they work.

    @TeRei going back to your 2013 post....
    So, was it a centre fire over barrel suppressor in 22 calibre?
    My rifle is a Quad too.

    The best .17 can I have used is the Greystone. Much quieter than any thing else I have used but you pay for it.... bloody nice though!

    I'd recommend them.
    This strikes me as a good feature, the HMR seems to be a dirty little Hua so far.
    I doubt they'll gum up in the same way as waxy 22 Long Rifle can though.

    You have impeccable taste in rifles.
    My old 1450 has accounted for its fair share of wild cats. I wouldn't have cleaned the Parker Hale suppressor since the mid 1990s. I doubt it would even come apart now.

    You would be surprised, apparently my Parker Hale had never been cleaned since was made in the 1980's (I remember asking the last owner). So a few weeks ago i got curious (like a cat?) and pulled it apart, put the threaded end in a barrel block (wood) and used a vice grip on the nut. I took a bit of cleaning but all went back together OK and shot fine.. The filth that came out was impressive. Probably worth getting something cleanable for a HMR they ARE dirty little buggers.

    I use a grey stone suppressor on mine, seems to be really good but friends have other similar style suppressors on theirs and they all seem to make about the same amount of noise. definitely worth doing though, 17s make a bit of noise otherwise
