    .22LR Mods

    Ive just picked up a Norinco JW-15A .22LR ...I want to cut the barrel down and fit a suppressor. Can anyone advise on a minimum barrel length? I want to go as short as possible but don't want the round to be effected dramatically. Also what are some good suppressors? Cheers

    there are plenty of threads on net about length..its surprisingly short before velocity drops, 12-13" FROM MEMORY.
    as for suppressor/moderators Ive got a manders on mine and it is as good as the large Spartan eg they BOTH seem to reduce noise the same..which tells me the manders must be good as Spartan is waaaay over kill as it is for my .223

    I have the Jw15a with over barrel suppressor. The barrel itself is only eleven inches. If you search Winchester chrony, I did some chrony work with it so that'll give some good info I'm sure. The average wasn't much under the speed on the box

    I cut my .22 as short as I could legally and ended up with the muzzle halfway up my head with suppressor fitted. A bit disconcerting esp.if you have one up the spout. Ended up with a piece of plastic tube extending out over the suppressor to lengthen it again.

    I'm guessing when it's shouldered on a sling the muzzle is nudging his noggin. Hopefully unloaded when it's tapping close to his skull

    Darwin may disagree if that is the case.

    .22LR Mods

    If you have one up the spout I think it should be in hand at half cock. Or if you are on sling bolt closed on empty chamber.
    If you want to carry it loaded at least you are pointing it in a safe direction when it's in your hands. To me that's at the ground not the sky
