Archangel Nomad

Just retrofitted a used 10-22 I recently acquired with one of these.

It will be getting a Primary Arms micro red dot as soon as they're back in stock.

Highly recommended.

No malfs in 300 rds except for the one time I didn't have the mag seated properly.

I may lose the shroud, though.

Yeah, but I'll wager when I get the can on it, you'll want to shoot it...

Charlie, do you have any recommendations on .22 ammo for use with cans?

I've been told that subsonics are strictly for use with bolt guns; that they lack the power to cycle semis...

"I've been told that subsonics are strictly for use with bolt guns; that they lack the power to cycle semis... "

absolutely not true

Rush right out and ask those who told you if they have ever tried it...

Weren't you there when we shot my quiet M&P rifle and AR. I routinely use CCI Standard velocity in both the Tactical Solutions conversion unit and the S&W M&P. High velocity ammo in those ain't all that quiet...

I'm sure there are some guns that won't work with standard velocity but more will than won't. Don't buy a ton of standard... a box will do... but when you get your can shoot both and see if you can tell the difference.

I was and I will; I can certainly experiment with different rounds until the friendly BATFE folks decide to grace me with the tax stamp I paid for in March.

At least I can determine what functions in the rifle and what doesn't.

I predict a July arrival

Depending on the can it may be fine with high speed but for standard velocity just get CCI...

A friend of mine who owns a silenced MkII Ruger says that ,while a little pricey, Eley Tenex works great and is so quiet you can hear the action work louder than the shot.

I agree that is is quiet... but is often marginal for funciton. My Model 41 loves it but the best news for Walt would that it doesn't work inhis...

$15-20/ box is almost too much fun...

It's liking the Federal bulk so far. I'm going to play with it some more this weekend after I mount my Aimpoint.
