Anyone Have a .22LR Suppressor On Your AA Converted Glock?

    I have a couple of Advantage Arms .22LR conversions for my G23 and G21.

    I am contemplating getting a longer bbl for the 23 and having it threaded to go with a suppressor.

    Does anyone have a conversion with a suppressor? How does it run and what brand suppressor are you using?

    Thanks,

    I was buying extended barrels and threading them to take the Sig Mousquito adapter and it works well with AAC silencers as it should any silencer.

    I got tired of not being able to get the kits so I stopped doing that.

    Since I have a fairly unreliable Sig Mosquito (with the threaded bbl).....that's exactly what I had planned as well: thread the longer bbl to the Sig thread pitch and get a can that would work with either the Sig or the AA conversion.

    When you say you got tired of not being able to get the kits....did you mean not being able to get the AA conversions or the longer bbls?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    I had Tornado Tech thread the regular barrel of my Advantage Arms G19 upper. No need to get the longer barrel unless you want it. I run my Gemtech Outback II on it. It's still relatively new and I've been having some teething problems with it. The 22 upper runs great without the suppressor but I get FTF / light firing pin strikes with it on. From what I've read it just needs to break in. Time will tell....:supergrin:

    How is there enough thread to engage the suppressor on the standard length AA conversion bbl for the 19/23/32? Does that particular Gemtech have an 'extension' or something? I can't tell from you pic, but I can't see how there would be enough bbl to thread it for the suppressor.

    Thanks for any info.

    There is not enough barrel they build an extension adapter.

    I have a G26 conversion and G21 conversion, both have a threaded barrel conversion done by SWR.

    For those that don't have an AA conversion, the AA barrel is pensel thin. That barrel is threaded, and a longer adapter is added.

    My systems run when clean. They have issues when I let them get dirty.

    Okay, so I'm confused. If the shorter (Standard length) AA conversion bbl for the 19/23/32 is threaded on the outside diameter (obviously), will it still run okay without a suppressor and not allow the threads to hit the AA conversion slide?

    Does anyone have pics of this set up with the AA stnd. length bbl, the adapter, and the suppressor all disconnected from one another? I'm not sure I'm understanding how this works.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Yes it will run without the suppressor, but you will always have the thread adapter on the conversion.

    So if you think you will stick a G26 in a G26 holster, think again.
