    I can't wait to modify it! I also scored a brick of PMC moderator subsonic ammo yesterday so I'll have to see if its better than the remington garbage subsonic.:rofl:

    Volquartsen trigger is the best purchase I have made on mine, so much better than stock trigger.

    great video as always :) that is actually the gun I want to get but not to replace my P 22, just as an additional host for my Gemtech Alpine. I love your videos because they are what inspired me to get off my lazy butt and get my suppressor:) keep them coming and we'll keep watching!

    Thanks for the vid. I love my 22/45. I have the larger target model with the bull barrel and removable grips.

    A buddy of mine has the threaded model like yours. Awesome pistol.

    May have to get a threaded version myself and go through the legal process of getting a suppressor. It's just so much fun to shoot.

    I wish mine had that nice flow but the barrel on mine is stepped down. Ahhh the OCD in me :rofl:

    Fireman,

    Nice video, thanks for posting that.

    I have a 22/45 like yours, except that mine came with no sights, only a Picatinny rail on top.

    I use an AAC silencer on mine, and I find that I don't need to use subsonic ammo. It's very quiet with regular ammo.

    That's not true, however, on my 10/22 rifle with the same silencer. Shooting supersonic ammo in it is like having no silencer at all.

    -Mike

    I'll have to try other "bulk pack" 22lr when it becomes available again. I'll chrono it and see if I can find a slightly weaker load so it stays subsonic.

    Good morning:wavey:

    Question about your backstop....is it just a dirt mound? If I wanted to shoot in my garage, what would be safe to use as a backstop? MANY layers of cardboard? 2X4s?

    Any info is greatly appreciated:thumbsup:

    Most bulk pack .22 stays subsonic out of pistols according to my chrongraph.

    For some reason I kept having rounds go supersonic, it sucked as I hate to use the more expensive subsonic.:steamed:

    Weird, maybe the "freebore" effect of your can is enough to push it over. Have you ever chrono'd with/without the can?

    Great video. I've got the same pistol. About 3 months away on the dedicated can. I'm getting excited.

    Wow, great video. I also have the 22/45 with a Sparrow silencer. I love shooting this combo as it has proven extremely quiet with almost every brand of ammo that I have used.
