Default The quietest rifle made...

Here is a picture of an integrally suppressed .22. This is a Savage MK 2 that has had the barrel reworked by Thompson Machine. The barrel is ported so that any .22 ammo may be used, and it has a used friendly monolithic baffle stack that may be removed for cleaning.

Its quiet and its accurate. When I pullled it out of the case for the first time, the discussion at the range was if dry firing it was louder than the actual shot itself. This thing meters at 91 decibles when dry fired, 92 when its fired. For comparison, most BB guns measure around 99 to 100 when fired.

This is fast becoming my favorite rifle. The crows around here part like the Red Sea when I step out into the yard with it. They've already learned at what range to stay away.

Its fun to shoot, and when squirrel hunting with it, it adds a whole different dimension to it...they dont know that they are being shot at, so if there are several around, they dont run off and disappear.

sounds pretty awesome. Crows and squirrels part like the Red Sea when I shoot my 12 ga, but it's probably because of the noise. Let's just say when I squirrel hunt they DEFINITELY know they're being shot at.

Did you just send in the barrel? What kind of cost?

Sounds pretty awesome. Are those numbers with sub-sonic ammo?

The gun comes just like it is from Thompson Machine. The barrel is actually ported so that most any ammo can be used. In truth shooting CCI standard ammo isnt much different from shooting CCI subsonics.

They retail for 700+ tax. To me, its well worth it. With subsonic ammo it is stupid quiet, about like popping a staple gun. Of course, you must pay the tax stamp of 200 bucks to the ATF, so, with tax you are looking around 1000 bucks. Yeah, its a bit pricey, but as of right now, it is THE industry standard for quietness. There is nothing quieter.

The semi auto is noticably louder than the bolt action due to the noice of the action and the bolt slamming back and forth.

Although my semi (Ruger 10/2 with integrally suppressed barrel) is pretty quiet, its not in the same league with the bolt action.

Because it's not an added on suppressor and just a shrouded barrel would that be legal in Calif.?

No. Everything is illegal in California except Sin.

Any form of sound suppressor is illegal.

If you like guns and you live in California... you're pretty well screwed.
