    The Colt Umarex M-4 Clone with Suppressor

    I bought a Colt M-4 .22 and its been a great little shooter. Its a clone of the M-4sort of, at least it looks like it. Its a dedicated .22 rifle. It's a very accurate rifle because the barrel is held in tension. It has a dovetail block on the receiver end and the barrel is actually just a rifled sleeve which is held in tension by the flash suppressor.

    It's a different type of setup from most rifles but it does seem to make it wonderfully accurate. The only problem that I could see was that the flash suppressor had a small boss on the end of it which had an "O" ring to tighten it up with which made any commercial suppressors pretty much a no-go.

    Thinking that it would be a great squirrel killer, I decided to make a suppressor for it, so with a bit of machine work and some time I did just that. Even though its fairly small in size, the sound suppression is excellent, with CCI subsonic ammo it cycles well and really all you can hear is the noise of the action.

    They arent hard to make, and since I am an 07FFL with an 02 SOT, I may just start manufacturing some for sale. Here are some pics.

    Showing the small boss that is required to mount the can...



    This one shows the can itself. Fairly small and lightweight, sounds about like a pellet gun.


    Here is a pic of the gun mounted with the can. It ought to be quite the thing for squirrle hunting.

    Very nice...for me I would probably bake a flat black finish on it. I am very jealous of people with abilities like yours.

    I'll DuraCoat it after I get the signature on it. It will be flat black.

    That's awesome. I couldn't even imagine knowing how to make a supressor....nor would I try. I've seen those at Cabella's before and wondered about them. Thanks for the positive feedback ...might be worth looking into for a plinker.

    Is it a 'wet' suppressor?

    It's only for a .22.....don't know how much difference it would make?

    No it is not "wet". Although it could be, it really dosent need it all. Wet suppressors are messy and a pain to keep up. While they are great because they allow smaller more compact suppressors, the .22 doesnt need it.
