    Talking Well, not really a carry gun, be very very quiet

    I finally got her done, my Ruger 22/45 that I have modified.
    This pistol was a great little shooter but I wanted to take it to another level.

    Started with a with a Pac-Lite threaded barrel from Tactical Solutions.
    And then added a Aviator Silencer from Advanced Armament and ended up with what you see below.

    I am in the process of getting it dialed in, with the iron sites I am getting a 2" group at 25 yards
    with CCI subsonic ammo. I am thinking of putting a nice red dot on it and trying some other ammo
    to bring the groups in tighter, Will try other ammo first. What do you all think?

    What is really a cool thing is that the hole pistol now with the Pac-Lite upper
    is lighter then the striped stock upper that came off of it.

    Sweet really sweet. I think you will really be happy with the red dot, I have one on my Mark11 and love it. It turned it into a tack driver.

    That's AWESOME.

    +1 on the idea of trying some optics and different brands of ammo.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much paperwork and money was involved to legally acquire a silencer where you live? I'd love to get one.

    Peace,

    Very nice indeed! I've seen and handled an integrally suppressed 10/22 locally. I think it'd be awesome to have just one suppressed firearm that I like, or a 14" barreled shotgun. I'm a good guy and all, just the funding part that's holding me back.

    Be sure to check your state laws, here in Montana they are fine to buy and own.
    The process wasn't to hard just required some leg work and some waiting, oh and $200.00 for the tax stamp on top of the price of the Silencer.
    It take a class 3 ffl dealer, a form 4 I believe, finger prints, pass port photo's, and having it signed off by your local Sheriff, then sending it all off to the ATF for approval, when you get it back approved you can then buy the silencer, it took about six weeks.

    With the new, lighter barrel and the 'hush-puppy' add on, is the gun pretty balanced out?

    That is sweet !

    I have nearly the same upper on my 22/45... they are nice. I've also been kicking around adding a can to mine, just haven't got off my duff to do it yet.

    The balance is really very nice, it is almost just a little muzzle heavy, due just to the extra length of the can. but for as light as it is you don't really notice when shooting.

    I'm willing to bet it sounds like a staple gun
    No I wouldn't say that, hard to explain, there is no "hard sound" at all. It's more like a short puff, like a weak pellet gun.

    Well get off your duff, they are fun and they do invite conversation. which is always a good thing and a good opportunity to educate those who have questions about guns and RKBA

    Thanks guys, Longbow

    Now that's what I call a nice set up ! I don't have a problem paying the $200
    for the stamp,I have a problem with what rights it gives the ATF.

    For the uninformed...what rights would those be?
