    Marcus, How long is the barrel on yours?

    Default Barrel length

    Maybe 10-11 inches. It is stamped! Suppressor is stamped also. I use it on my Ar10 .308 and ar15 7.62x39 also. I had to shorten stock and hand guard to get it to nice shooting length. I have a S&K mounted eotech on it now. Is fun shooter that way.

    Some, not all, American semi auto .22s don’t like the subsonic ammo they were not designed for. Not enough grunt to operate the action. When this happens we cautiously replace or remove coils from return springs. Not sure what you could do to a carbine to make it function with less pressure.
    Any suppressed semi auto will always have the small problem of the noise of the action being cycled. My favourite suppressed .22 is my B.S.A. single shot Martini. No noise from the action but not a combat weapon at any stretch of the imagination.
    Barryeye.Just curious to ask this. Whats the regulations regarding suppressors in New Zealand? Something similiiar to us or can you just make one and throw it on down there? I am guessing your regs are probably even stricter but would be interesting to know. Thanks

    Well Carbineone it may come as a surprise to you but to the best of my knowledge there are absolutely no legal restrictions to owning, making or fitting suppressors in New Zealand. You can buy suppressors for .22s straight off the shelf. Many .22s are sold new threaded for silencers or sound moderators as we call them. I favour the Parker Hale models. Suppressors are available for any centre fire rifle you can think of and are growing in popularity. These are normally sold by the smiths who fit them. We have gunsmiths who specialise in this. I must confess I have no knowledge of the law surrounding handguns and suppressors here. Most of the serious vermin (opossum and rabbit) shooters have at least one suppressed rifle in their armoury.

    Is it not better to place a question mark upon a problem while seeking an answer than to put the label `God` there and consider the matter closed? Joseph Lewis
