I just received this PHENOMENAL adapter from Coastal Gun Inc. for my Ruger 10/22. I put my suppressor on it and it functioned flawlessly. I completely recommend checking it out. More info about it after the pics.

I really wanted to get a threaded barrel for my ruger to replace the factory one, but there were many draw backs:

1) All the threaded barrels are out of stock and back ordered at least 12 weeks

2) The threaded barrel does not have iron sights (no sights on barrel at all, so you'll pay extra for sights)

3) They start at $130 (The adapter is MSRP $75 and you keep your iron sights)

I have a Coastal Gun Passport .22 suppressor, so I figured I'd ask them if they had a solution. They sent me their incredible adapter and I didn't have to change my factory barrel.

The MSRP is $75.

Check out their website http://www.coastalgun.com for other great products

Its not so much I dont trust the quality of the part... Its more that there are too many variables for me to trust my can, $200 stamp on it being concentric to the bore. Plus it looks like crap IMHO

The quality of the adapter is irrelevant. The problem is not all barrel bores are concentric with the exterior diameter of the barrel. The adapter could be the most perfectly engineered item in human history but you can still get baffle strikes if your barrel isn't equally well machined.

You're gambling on the quality of the barrel maker as much as the quality of this part. IMO it's better to have a qualified smith (like tornado tech) thread your barrel or to buy a quality pre-threaded barrel (like from tac-sol).

MSRP on this adapter is $10 more than Tornado charges to thread a 10/22. Granted, if you want to keep the front site it will cost you more, plus there are shipping charges involved. The fact of the matter is I would rather have the barrel threaded for the reasons stated above.

To be completely honest, I think you guys might be over analyzing the whole thing. I have used it, I know a dealer who has one and not one baffle strike for either of us. No malfunctions what so ever. Don't knock it until you try it.

Every barrel is diferent, just because it works without baffle strikes
on your barrel dousnt mean it will with all.

I won't try it is the point. It is a baffle strike risk, period. Trying it risks damaging a can that costs hundreds of dollars. As I said the quality of that product is irrelevant, you're gambling on Ruger's factory barrels being tightly in-spec. They won't always be that way.

For just a little more I could make sure things were done right. Or, I could safe just a few bucks and run the risk of paying a Gemtax. No thanks.

Those things are bad mojo, yeah I tried one and guess what, yep a baffle strike. Moral is always do the right thing, short cuts are for fools.
Just my .02 cents worth, but cost me a lot more.

I like it . Not sure I'd shoot through a 22 silencer but something larger in a pinch no problem.

I'd consider using it. I can think of some applications where it'd be useful.

N=2 is not enough for me to trust it. Get back to me when a couple hundred people are using it regularly with suppressors without baffle strikes.

rollinpqrnstarjl,

Somthing to consider.
Here's a random sampling of the diameter of the front sight area on Ruger 10/22 barrel ends from our scrap pile:

0.624
0.624
0.617
0.618
0.6185
0.620
0.623
0.622
0.615
0.620
0.619
0.619
0.621
0.622

That's a pretty big spread of values.

The front site post was never designed to retain a suppressor or the muzzle blast.
I'll pass.

Yep, AAA's post is spot on. Like I've been saying, it's not about the quality of that product at all, it's about what Ruger gives you to work with. They just don't make those barrels and front sight assemblies in tight enough spec to serve that purpose, even assuming the coupler is perfect. And that's assuming the coupler is perfect.

Now, if you were using a can that was significantly overbored I guess I'd feel safer, but at that point what are you doing, putting a .30 cal can on it? I don't think the weight of your average .30 would be good dangling off that thing either for alignment or for accuracy purposes.

.615 to .624 that 9 thou diff :roll:
Plus the fact they aren't always concentric with the bore.
Nope I wouldn't use it. I know at one point this was a
prefered way to mount when suppressors cost you a couple
of bucks down at the hardware store and no pprwrk was required,
but when mine cost at least a $200 tax and my time and materials
- I'm not going to take the chance.

No, I don't trust the quality of Ruger or Coastal

threading a barrel is easy; fixing a silencer is hard

I have one of these and it aligns very well on 2 of my 10/22's. I've been using it for the past 5 years with no problems. $35+s&h
http://muzzlecouplings.com/muzzle_couplings.htm

D.A.Q. coupling is easily attached and detached. It is retained by lock rings bearing on the foresight. All steel, hot bath gun blued.

Muzzle thread is 1/2-20 U.S.-N.F. $30. each.

Other thread sizes 1/2-28, 7/16-14, 3/8-24 can be made on special order (allow 3-4 weeks) for $5. additional.
Thread adaptors allow you to adapt a coupling to all MAC, HE & SWD threads.

For .22 rimfire rifles & pistols. If the gun is not listed, I don't have it.

Available from stock, $30. each:
WHEN ORDERING SPECIFY MANUFACTURER, MAKE & MODEL

Colt Woodsman 5/8" diameter Round Barrel (non-tapered)
with 1/8" blade sight (same as barrel pictured
above.) Temporarily out of stock
Ruger 10/.22 Rifle standard barrel only (the .920 diameter
bull barrel must use a Maxim coupling because it does not
have a front sight.)
