    Best rim fire suppressor

    Probably been asked before but ...........

    I went out bunny shooting with a mate the other day ( both running subs ) & was impressed with his el cheapo can on his Norinko especially compared to the enormous HRE can on my RX 22, I'm thinking of getting a new bolt gun

    So whats a good / quiet 22 suppressor or do the cheap ones works just as well ?
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Best rim fire suppressor

    I have an Atec. Works well . Tight tolerances , very slim and dam quiet. I've built my own carbon 12in suppressors for Pneumatic Air rifle. A tight tolerances to the bullet diameter with out being dangerous make a real difference as does the correct internal damping material, but you can't really do that with a real rifle as it eventually gets blown to bits.

    manders was the one on my norinco and it was as good as any...tried the huge spartan off my .223 for grins n giggles and it wasnt much different.now running winchester subs WITHOUT suppressor and honestly think they quiet enough as it is through long barrel of norinco to not disturb much at all.

    duct tape and a plastic bottle I was using a hushpro also got a cheapie spring and washers one as well only fired a few shots through it it seemed to work as well for how long I don't know some say the washers can cock sideways in them if I had the time id try cutting some rubber hose and put it in instead of the springs to see what happens

    I have a hushpro works mint
    I think using subsonic you would need equipment to really notice the difference between a $20 one and a $200
    One if you use supersonic or 22mag/hmr that’s when the money is justified

    Greg Maniatis gunsmith in Chch makes some good ones - remember range testing them few years back. Can disassemble them and wash baffles. Nice little units and weren't too dear.

    I have a MAE .22 suppressor which is solid and all stainless, also have a DPT suppressor which is certainly lighter and you don't even notice on the end of the rifle which is also rated for .17 HMR

    Both work great and haven't noticed any difference between either.

    the one I got with my 10/22 years ago had 3 sliding chambers and a spring in it. I don't recall it being that expansive compared to others but there wasn't the variety around like back then. I was pretty happy with how quiet it was especially compared to my original slip on one.
    Don't have it at the moment to compare to my self built jobbies but if its the same as them then it was good.
    Does anyone know who made that model? Maybe Gun city?

    The ASE rimfire can is the best I reckon, it is the only rimfire suppressor that will suppress the first shot from my ruger mk2 pistol, all others will have a first round crack as the oxygen is burnt up.

    That was one of mine. I made thousands of them from the 1970's until I retired in2012. I made two distinct models, the first having a rolled groove in the 7/8" tube to support the machined baffle chambers. They were marketed direct from me (WCG, Woods Custom Guns) and also by Winchester. The second model had three rolled baffles and a spring in a 28mm tube, sold direct from me and also Gun City. The first model was equal to the Parker Hale suppressor, but the second model was even better and was the quietest .22 muzzle can you could get. Firing in an open area gave nothing but the sound of the firing pin.

    ive had a manders on my toz17 for close on 30yrs and its that close to silent if it didnt stink i wouldnt know the russian had farted.
    seriously i euthanised kids pets in the backyard -my bloody airrifle sounded like a 105mmhowitzer next to it!
    simple as ashit to take apart and clean and it just keeps on keepin on
    with one eye on gundoc -those buggers made it simple and made it to last.
    Id screw that on my JW!15 and Im99.9 Id get the same result.
    incidentally paulus manders alaso made the adaptor for the toz Bell end (flash hider )again craftsman ship pure and simple.
