    .22 suppressor

    Has anyone used a DPT .22 rimfire suppressor? Wondering how effective they are with normal L.R. ammo.

    Thanks for the input. Figured they'd be good. I run DPT on my centre fire rifles and would recommend them to anyone.

    hate to pop your bubble but ive had one fitted on my toz17 .22 for nigh on 30yrs now and it has never ,ever given me one iota of trouble.paulus himself did the job -its had 1000s of rounds through that rifle and its a bloody sight quieter than even my airr ifle .had to be for ive had to put more than one of the kids pets down over the years and its done the job.

    The DPT rimfire is a great suppressor.
    Parker Hale is another really good one.

    I've had a little play building my own with different baffles-a little heavier than I'd like but all steel so....anyway haven't tried supersonics but I have no doubt they would be ok
    a little over barrel (maybe 50mm) with a little ported blast chamber ahead of the muzzle with several baffles ahead-one has a couple of K baffles and one has flat jobbies-both pretty quiet but got nothing to compare to. sorry off topic apologies.

    the trouble with supers is the same as with centrefire...you can trap all the exhaust type gases as subsequent explosion noise but you cant get rid of the supersonic crack caused by projectile going above the sound barrier so no matter how good your can it will only be so quiet before you "hit the wall" so to speak.

    well mine lasted well under 500 rounds, went down and bought one of "gundocs" and thats had more rounds thru it than i care to remember with never an issue.

    I have one I use with a browning pump 22 and savage bolt 22. Does a great job, with CCI Quiets all you here is the click of the trigger then the report of the impact.

    father in law has a parker hale one, bloody nice
    me and the missus still use WCG's (gundocs). occasionally they get pulled apart and cleaned, dried and reassembled . shooting mate has a DPT, seems pretty good too. but as mentioned earlier it only silences the muzzle blast and will not stop the projectile making a crack if its faster than the speed of sound. however with supersonic ammo the animal isnt quite as sure as where the noise came from.

    Hi,

    Just as a general note, I would not recommend using a centrefire suppressor very long on .22LR, as they can easily get a lot of fouling in them.

    Best Regards!
