Budget suppressed bolt action 22? Login/Join 
Member
posted
Hey, I'm looking to put together a bolt action .22lr with a suppressor and maybe a 4x scope to deal with some voles that have been ticking me off.

I'm thinking bolt action 22 because my current belief is that would be the quietest option, please school me if I'm wrong. I was thinking that with some Colibri would do the trick without scaring the crap out of my neighbors.

I was originally thinking a Ruger American Rimfire, what do you all think? Trying to keep the budget as low as possible for this.

Thanks!

Savage Mark II FV SR. Very happy with mine. I think I paid $240 for it. Not sure how that compares to the Ruger.

I would also recommend the Savage MKII FV-SR. With just the rifle and Super Colibri it is very quiet. When adding a suppressor I use CCI Quiet, and that is quieter yet. Definitely quieter than a semi auto, since there's no action noise. With this setup, and the right ammo, it's nearly just the sound of the firing pin striking the .22 round and the impact of the bullet. I purchased mine from Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore a couple of summers ago for around $225. I looked on their website and they currently have it for about $235, and Savage is running a $30 rebate through the end of June (like to it is also on their page.) It is definitely my quietest suppressed setup!

I think you'll find that shooting sub-sonic ammo with a suppressor negates the need to shoot Colibri.

As for rifles, I think the RAR (Ruger American rifle) would be a great choice for the budget minded shooter.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Good tips!

Do you think shooting super colibri from an unsuppressed semi-auto rifle or handgun would be loud enough for close neighbors to notice?

I also wonder if that'd be fun to use for target shooting in the garage.

I'm not sure about the volume, but loaded with super colibri ammunition, your semiauto won't be semiauto anymore (it won't cycle).

Oh yeah I figured as much.

Another vote for the Ruger American Rifle .22 (#8334).
It feeds from the excellent Ruger 10/22 rotary magazine.

I looked at the Savage but ended up with the Ruger American Rimfire with threaded barrel because I had a bunch of 10/22 magazines already.

It's nice and quiet and using a $20 scope has held zero even when beat up by my 10 yr old.



Not minority enough!

A .22 with subs is just going to make a coyote angry. That's if you are even able to hit the thing past 40ish yards.

To your original questions, any of the .22 rifles mentioned so far will hold their own. I opted for a CZ 455 with a SiCo Warlock II. I have a Zeiss 3-10 on it and all together it's a nice light weight set up.

If you shoot the lower velocity Colibris in a rifle, be SURE every one clears the barrel.

I've had to push a few out with a rod.

As others have mentioned, the Ruger 8334 rifle. Mine is paired with a SiCo Sparrow and Leupold VX-2 Rimfire 3-9x33mm EFR, the combination of the three is outstanding.

I see there is a compact Ruger rimfire that has both irons and a threaded barrel. Might be worth a look too.

This is what I have. I paid NOVA prices, but it still was only I think 325 OTD.

It with a Silencerco Sparrow, you can hear the firing pin hit the round, and the round hitting the backstop.

Another option to keep in mind is the new Ruger American Rimfire Target model: http://ruger.com/products/amer...reTarget/models.html

You will enjoy the Ruger American Rimfire suppressed. It is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, plinking away without needed hearing protection. Out of the box, it is a great little rifle. Add a rimfire scope on it and you enter another realm of fun. I have not had any issues with it.

You can't lose with either the Savage MkII FVSR or the Ruger American. Know however, that the plastic stocks on either are pretty crappy and flex terribly. I haven't shot my American much because of this. I did replace the stock on my Savage.

If I were to do it again, I'd get the Ruger American Target with the laminated stock and be done with it.

I love my Savage FV SR, but dang that Ruger American Rimfire Target is a pretty little gun. I may have to pick one of those up.

Here's a video of mine. It's a Ruger American Compact Rimfire Rifle (8306), Leupold VX-II 3-9X40mm duplex reticle, and a Gemtech Outback-II suppressor.

You have to kind of listen for it because I was sharing a "pocket Berm" with other shooters. When you hear it by itself you hear the hammer drop and then the round impact. The impact sound is louder to me.
