I have the new Troy C.A.P Suppressed Pistol (Basic) and two questions for you Ruger MKII/III/22-45 suppressed pistol shooters:
How many rounds do you get out of your suppressed pistol before function drops sharply due to the pistol being junked up with carbon, etc?
Also, have you ever had rounds consistently key holing with these types of Ruger suppressed pistols?
Ammo is CCI Mini-Mag and Standard Velocity.

If I completely read over it then it's on me. Anyone have a lead on a good guy that can drill and tap a lower rail on a 22/45, and cut and thread the barrel? Just picked one up today for a steal and want to get this baby online asap!

"A river runs through it" is a load of shit!

So HDLS the theory of relativity applies

Gemtech did a great job threading my 22/45. Give em a shout. I'd bet they'd be willing to do the other work too. They had to re-drill and tap my barrel when they moved the front sight.

Yeah their work is amazing. I was pretty astounded when it came back. There's another pic of it back on page 2. Nothing special but she has always been quite a tack driver. Razz If I get a chance sometime soon, I'll snap another pic or two and get em up.

My rendition of the concept. Ruger MKIII, Aimpoint H1 on an Aimpoint MKIII mount, rail added to bottom of barrel for the LaserMax laser. I wish there was a better version of the LM laser with a similar profile. Battery life almost measured in seconds. I live downtown so I have no perforated squirrel pics even though it's a target-rich environment. On the range it is a tack driver. The rangemaster and I had fun a couple of days ago making shotgun wads dance around on the berm from 50 yards.

Hey y'all, watch this . . .

Resurrecting this thread with an addition a long time in the making.  Started with a Ruger 22/45 LITE I purchased from DZ.  I covered the hideous green/gold anodized bbl with a nice tan Duracoat.  I then created a catastrophic failure in the polymer lower and bricked the gun.  After almost a year's wait for Volquartsen to release their 22/45 lower, it came in the mail along with a new mainspring housing.  Other additions include, "Frag" slabs from the Monkey Depot, a TacSol railed rear sight, and a Triji RMR.  Still waiting on my can to arrive at my dealer from Thunderbeast so I can get started on the paperwork and the loooong wait with the BATFE.  All I need now are squirrels.  This part of Wyoming is not a natural habitat, so jack rabbits, squeekies, and prairie dogs will do nicely.

From what I saw on rimfire central they will work. I'm looking for a 22/45 myself for a little trigger time in my garage with a can since I'm having trouble affording 9 mm at this time.

I have Ergo 1911 stocks on mine. They work fine, so I imagine the CTC stocks will work fine as well. I had to slightly relieve the corner of the port stock to accommodate the bolt catch on mine. I do not remember there being any circuitry there on my CTC 1911 stocks back in the day.

my wife has now truly seen the fire in my eyes. but sadly, i don't think i can pull off a .22 with a silencer here. pellet gun it is. yes i've taken down squirrels with a pellet gun grown up. just need to put two or three in them if the first ain't a head shot

And it is still a pistol, so no stamp involved.  It's an idea anyway.

Is $400 cash a good price for a new Ruger 22/45 Lite, with the holes in the barrel? 

 

It looks like it is this one, which I see retails for $499 : http://www.ruger.com/products/...specSheets/3906.html

 

It has iron sights and is tapped for a scope base. My intention is to mount a SilencerCo Sparrow on it eventually... anybody see any downsides to this action? I am unfamiliar with the holes in the barrel (is it ported or are those lightening/vent holes?)

I am guessing those are lightening holes. I have a 22/45 Lite- the older style- I can't see it needing ported.

 

If your lucky those will line up with the holes in a Pic rail so you can mount a X300 underneath.

 

FWIW- I gave 359 for mine. Then found the same gun down the street for 339 about an hour later.

Copy thanks. I may still give them $400, there aren't many that I've seen around.

Are you dead set on the RMR-ish form factor?  If not, the Primary Arms red dot T1 clone is a heckuva bargain (I'm running one on my 22/45) and only costs $80 or so...

Is there a favourite combo for this? Looks like the 22/45 is most popular by far; what about the can?

Dedicated .22 suppressor, or one that will also work with my G19?

God, grant me the strength to change the things I cannot accept.

For you fellows with these little blasters, what sort of ammo are you finding that works well? Do subsonics run at all?

I've got a GM22 that's been submitted for transfer and I'll be ordering a 22/45 LITE here shortly. I've been going back through this thread taking notes but it is getting a little dated.

I have found that CCI subsonics will not run in my 22/45 with SilencerCo Sparrow for whatever reason. I haven't been able to find other brands and types of subsonic to try out yet. Using LOTS of lube doesn't help the situation.

Nav get a dedicated can. 9mm cans are front heavy as a bitch on these pistols!  I have both and wouldn't want to play with my 9mm can on a .22 pistol.

EK most any ammo should run subsonic out of the short barrel!  I've ran CCI SV fed bulk and winchester out of them all sounded about the same.  Being said I have an older can Tac65 that's not too great for pistols.

Well Hell hath frozen over...MN Gov. Dayton has signed a bill to legalize suppressor ownership in MN as well as a provision that prevents the disarming of citizens during a state of emergency (even better)

 

Looks like I can finally dive into the world of suppressors with a .22LR being at the top of the list!

I have been running Eley Subsonic hollow points in my 22/45 x AAC Element 2. It eats them like candy and does so very quietly. They are very accurate as well.
