Smith & Wesson Model 29-2 .44mag, circa 1970. Fired maybe 24 times. It's flawless.

Very nice.

.38 Special and not Super? That's rare!

Checked out some Ruger 22s, the Mark III, the 22/45, and the Hunter versions today at the local outdoor-mart. Very nice guns! The Mark III is only $280.

I see the pics of the Pac-Lite and Tactical Solutions uppers with the silencers, but I am curious if the standard Rugers can be fitted with just a threaded barrel for a silencer?

There are replacement threaded barrels sold but I have heard they are a real bitch to install.

The gun is not designed to have the barrel replaced but the barrel is threaded into the receiver.

If you really want a silenced Ruger, I would just buy one with an intergral silencer installed.

I actually really just want a silenced .22, or the option to have one in the future. Not necessarily a Ruger, but something of quality that has a threaded barrel, or can be easily fitted for one.

Thanks!

A Ruger can be threaded by a competent gunsmith to accept a suppressor.

Usually the cost, including a thread protector runs about $75.00 from what I've seen.

If that's not your cup of tea, there is the Walther P-22, but you'll need a muzzle adaptor to step up the OAD to the correct diameter.

I didn't know what a compensator was. So I looked it up. I know what a muzzle brake is. I didn't know they were the same!

Anyway, while looking it up I found this. Great picture of a Howitzer muzzle brake in action.

Thanks. I don't know why a .22 with a silencer sounds so appealing, really, just sounds like fun. Then I can shoot at my parent's house without the neighbors whining

Just out of curiosity, will your parents be in their house when you shoot at it? If so, why would you want to shoot at your parents?

Then buy a P22 as it is the cheapest way to get inot a suppressed 22. Oh, and BTW, it is suppressed, not silenced...a supressor only supresses the sound, there isn't a such thing as a silencer, that is a term coined by hollywood back in the day since they know nothing about firearms...-

A compensator usually is refered to as such because it compensates for somtething, usually muzzle rise. A muzzle brake is to allow gasses to escape for recoil usually. A bore evacuator is entirely different and usually found in the middle of the barrel on very large artillery peices.

Um...shooting on their property I mean, away from the house!

They live on 12 acres in the mountains, there are a few houses around but their property borders a 450 acre retreat/open space ranch. We were shooting muskrats in the pond, with a very large wooded hill as a backdrop. No houses up there. Also, the hill is their property, and the ranch was not an open space at the time, but a private YMCA ranch.

So, the neighbor yells at us to stop shooting. We're shooting a Marling bolt-action .22 rifle with CB SHORTS! He says he will call the sheriff if we don't stop. So, my brother and I call the cops first, stating what we're doing, and that the neighbor may call in.

The sheriff says as long as we're being safe, not shooting over people or houses, the neighbor can kiss it!
