Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

A post on another forum and this video I watched (at the 1:00 mark) a while ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBHOay8TAiI got me to do a little thinking. Instead of trying to squeeze everything into a small 1" OD piece of tubing, why not just fit up the frame to a large diameter receiver? This is...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Any plans on making a left side eject version? No plans currently. I suppose it wouldn't be too hard. The receiver is the easy part, making a new bolt would be slightly more involved. [right click] drawings... And saved. :D Got another project for the lathe/mill now... Byrdman The receiver should b...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Today I spend a little bit of time putting together my testing plan. I want to get an idea of what barrel length bullets will stay sub-sonic. My plan is to start at the factory length barrel and cut it down by 0.1" until it's 2.0" in length and record a number of variables along the way using a coup...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Sorry I haven't had much progress to document lately. I've just been working on scrounging up more barrels and ammo for the up-coming testing period. The kind folks at Clarks Custom Guns gave me a call the other day to let me know another take-off barrel came in. Besides that, I was fortunate a coup...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

A small update. My apologizes for not having much to share lately. I recently took on a part time job (30-40 hrs a week on top of my normal 9-5 engineering job ) with a local gun parts wholesaler, so my evenings have been spent putting together 100's of 5.56 and 7.62 BCG's. This evening for example,...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Yesterday afternoon I was able to sneak out of the office a little early and get some work done. After about two weeks of dry firing and countless times taking the Ruger apart, I decided it was time to ditch the magazine safety. Although I'm sure the device has its merits, I find it makes the pistol...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

I talked to my parents today to see if they could start buying any .22 ammo in their respective locations so I have plenty when I start doing my barrel testing. Of course my mother inquired what I needed all this ammo for, so I sent her a link to this thread explaining that I was bored and needed a ...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Pending I can dig up some titanium tubing of the size I need, this is my initial thought for my design. Unlike the Gemtech design that is solid between the breech and the muzzle, I want to go with a removable barrel design that will allow me to port the barrel and have all that addition volume to re...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

I did though however run into my first hurdle. I can't seem to find 1.0" O.D. x 0.75" I.D. titanium tubing anywhere. It's my plan to use that as a starting point for the monolithic tube for the upper, so if I'm unsuccessful at sourcing some, I might have drill and ream some barstock. I have never s...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Did a little work last night drawing up the receiver. I was kind of surprised how simple it was, basically just a 1" OD x 0.75" ID tube with a few cuts in it. The ejector is riveted in place and the feed ramp is part of the barrel. Obviously I still have some work to do with the bottom cuts and thre...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

I managed to find some .22 ammo this morning at a local shop and headed to the range earlier today. I must say that while I do think that the 22/45 is incredibly lacking in quality, I did find myself quite surprised with accuracy. This was about an 80 shot group at 15yds using CCI Mini-mags. http://...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Plenty of people have made integral cans before too, but I don't think I've seen anyone make a monolithic integral can before similar to the Gemtech Oasis and when you're young, single, and have way too much time on your hands, why not? There have been a few of them built. I recall seeing one in al...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

Why not just form 1 a screw on can, and chop the bbl down to 4" then thread it? That is the route I'd take. Then, two years from now, when I was bored with it, I could screw it on something else. I guess you might not realize what a curse/blessing NFA is. It's like losing your virginity, you just n...

Re: Building a 22/24 integral can

I don't really have a timeline for this project. So in no particular order, some things I need to or at least have intentions of looking into to along the way: -Determine what length of barrel will keep everything subsonic, supported with math -Determine a general design for the upper. Keep in mind ...

Building a 22/24 integral can

I decided on a whim the other day I'm going to give this whole NFA Form 1 thing a whirl. The plan is to build a integrally suppressed upper for a Ruger 22/45. I've kind of lusted over the Gemtech Oasis over the years and decided the other day that I wanted to build something better. So this thread i...

Building a 22/24 integral can

Are there any legal issues with building a integral 22/24 can?

I was considering machining the entire upper so I would be making a firearm and the suppressor, similar to the Gemtech Oasis design, so I didn't know if there would be any inherent legal issues of trying to do something like this.
