Maybe pump action would be even better? I have a winchester 1890 in 22 short. If i found one in 22lr for a decent price, can octagonal barrels be threaded? Anything similar in bolt action that isn't necessarily a collector?
I got a S&W M&P 15-.22. already threaded. Put a Yankee Hill Machine can on it. Love that click thud with sub-sonic ammo.

Other than a rimfire, I have an M54 Winchester in .22 Hornet and a Martini in .218 Bee, and a Krico in .222. Lotsa .22 fun. Oh, and a Walther PP .22.

I have a Ruger No. 3, a Ruger No. 1, and a Model 43 Winchester in .22 Hornet. I have only shot the No. 3, and it likes WW296 best. Do you have a load you like for the Hornet?

Cans

Speaking of Cans, I'm looking for a can predominately for use on my 10/22 and my 22A, but since i am in the .22X size range I thought it might be nice to run on my AR. I like that rimfire cans are typically user serviceable. Is there a recommended can that works best on a .22 but also does a dang good job on a .223?

Is there any can that does .3X real well along with everything below? One can on everything (.22LR, .223, .308)

Cans

As I understand it (in other words I could be wrong .... again) the 22 rimfire cans are usually able to be openned up for cleaning because the ammo is so 'dirty'. 22 rimfire cans are not designed to handle the pressure of an AR so it might not last long if you try to use a rimfire can on a centerfire and a centerfire can will become less effective as it gets filled with crud if used on the rimfire. There are probably cleanable centerfire cans (mine isn't) that I don't know about. Another thing is weight, I couldn't/wouldn't spend the extra cash for titanium, my stainless YHM weighs 20 oz, very noticable on the AR and would completely change the balance of most rimfires. I am tempted to get something like a 17HMR Savage and have it threaded to se how that would sound, even knowing that you can't really silence a supersonic round.

It's a factory BX-1 ten rounder that's jb welded to an AR airsoft knock-off. The jb holds it on really well, and the AR functions like a really big mag pull (and is 100% certified mall ninja awesome).

I posted this on the ILTG, but in case you don't read both:

Found a slick way to upgrade the trigger on my Marlin 880 .22 bolt action - going on line and searching showed a well know trick: The Pen-spring replacement - pull the trigger return spring and replace it with a Papermate Flexgrip retractable pen spring - I had one in my drawer about out of ink so that was free...then shim the spring that powers the Sear - I used a piece of wire cut to length, maybe .06" long to tighten the sear.

Did not stone the trigger/sear interface, might do that just for giggles now that I know how easy it is to work on this rifle.

Improvement? Went from a small group of 1.4" yesterday to a small group of .95" today, at 50 yards. Not exactly bench-rest accuracy, but for a .22, not too bad, for a cheap-ass .22, I'm more than happy - the trigger is about half as hard to pull, but I don't have a scale to test it - the groups tell the tale in my mind.

Cost: Free part, about an hour of my fiddling around time. Most of it spent learning the parts.
