I had no problems ordering a 3 lug adapter for my GT Multi Mount. I ordered directly from Gemtech and they put it in the mail today.

So, is it just YMH that pussied out and crapped their panties? If so, my heart ain't broken since I don't have much interest in their products.

How well does .17 suppress? Well, it depends. The .17HMR round reaches velocities of about 2550fps out of a 20" barrel and has a definite report. The .17HM2 is much more quite. But, the round really drops off after about 150-175 yards. You will get an extra 75 yards out of the HMR. The bullet flys ...

Re: New guy, first of 40 million questions

If you really want an integral bolt gun, why not get a 77/22 or one of the CZ's? You will have more options and accessories available. Just my 2 cents worth. Seconded. Especially with the 77/22. Thirdeded. 77/22 with a Volk trigger assembly would be my choice of an integrally suppressed rifle. As o...

Re: Which suppressor for wide variety of rimfires?

Total newbie. Should I just pony up the bucks for a 5.56mm can so it can do double duty? Thank you. Absolutely NOT! Shooting .22LR through a centerfire .223 can will void its warranty. I know of NO manufacturers who will warranty a sealed centerfire can that has leading in it from .22LR use. Not a ...

Although leading is the nemesis of the .22LR, an integrally suppressed rifle will give you about 100K rounds of service before you need to have it cleaned/rebuild by the manufacturer. Generally speaking, the suppressor portion may well outlive your barrel. If you like the rifle, go for it. The real ...

Hmmm. The short barreled barreled version will give you what you want easily, but the longer barrel is more quiet. and this is the name of the game for me and accuracy is just an added bonus.

I have the same problem as does the OP. Light primer strikes. I'm tagging this thread in case someone has a solution.
I will check to see if the gun goes completely into battery.

I must admit though, I have not had as many malfunctions as I did 200 rounds ago, but I still get them.

It shouldn't be getting louder. It should be getting slightly quieter, silencers tend to mellow a little bit once they have a baseline coating of crap in them. Agreed. Some carbon is desirable and actually helps with noise attenuation. The nemesis of sealed .22LR cans is LEADING. If your blast baff...

The key to successfully using the Smart Carry is in your apparel. You will do MUCH better by wearing pleated pants/shorts and using an elastic type of belt (preferably one with some leather around the buckle area to dress it up a little) It also matters how you adjust the holster.

Don't get 22 mags. They will be a sloppy fit. If you want more rounds, buy a Glock brand (not aftermarket) +2 baseplate and only use it with extra-power magazine springs. But I would not even do that. It just makes the grip print more on your shirt and may decrease reliability. A G23 holds 15+1 whi...

I don't mean to put them on the court house or hospitals. Just places of business that are not legally bound to restrict or deny carry. I wouldn't even do that.

One more thing to consider about using a centerfire .223 can for .22LR is that your centerfire can's warranty will be voided if the manufacturer finds any indication of leading in the can. Just another reason to have a .22LR can for .22LR and nothing else.
