CCI Quiets in 10/22 with can

Being a good neighbor, I wanted to keep my shooting as quiet as possible, so took on a project to deliver a reliable semi-auto using CCI Quiets. After LOTS of research, trial-and-error tinkering and plenty of headscratching, I have a completely reliable 10/22 that is dedicated to using the Quiets and my YHM Mite. It's Hollywood quiet!
The weight of the bolt was the major issue. Yes, I could have bought Volquartsen's .22 short conversion for the 10/22 and been done a long time ago, but this was a challenge. It kept me off the streets for several months since I didn't put 100% of my time into it. I took off major weight from the factory bolt by drilling 6 holes through the flat end from top to bottom using a set of carbide bits and lots of cutting oil. I also chamfered the back of the bolt and even took off parts of the rear corners with my belt sander! I substituted a lighter recoil spring (10% weaker), cut a coil off the hammer spring and lightened the hammer. Substituted a polymer bolt buffer for the factory steel one.
Most of this was done piecemeal as the project went along, trail-and-error. I didn't have a master plan to start with, just figuring out what might be next. The results are great and work just fine. If I decide to go back to a standard issue 10/22, all I have to do is get a new factory bolt to put back in. The hammer spring and hammer can be used in their current lightened state. No light strikes!!
Now my neighbors don't even know when I'm out back having some fun. The YHM Mite works well with this setup. I'm happy with this project......

Before altering the bolt, did you ever give Aguila SSS ammo a try?

Yes, I did try the SSS ammo, but didn't get decent accuracy and then read about possible baffle strikes, so I ditched them.

Yeah, I heard the same thing. Just wondering if you've heard or experienced differently. Obviously the problem is the 60 grain bullet is longer and therefore needs a faster twist for stability. There do exist 10/22 barrels that have a fast twist and are specifically made for the 60 grain SSS ammo. I'm curious if those barrels were tapped for a suppressor how they would perform.

The reduced weight of the bolt is now 5.2oz. I may continue and see if I can get it to reliably cycle with .22 shorts!!

How quiet is it without the can compared to with the can? Many of us don't want F-Troop getting into our business.

With a silencer and subsonic ammo, I hear a click-click as the bolt cycles and that's about it. Without the silencer, subsonic has the boom but not that crack you get from the sound barrier being broken. Still need ear plugs or sound dampening without the silencer. And still would annoy the neighbors.

CCI subsonic ammo doesn't cycle my 10/22s very well, the Aguila does but I also don't get the same accuracy as with CCI. But with a silencer and suprsonic ammo, everything works fine and all I really get is the crack of a baseball bat hitting the ball. Still won't disturb the neighbors.

Then again, my neighbors don't use silencers. Or .22s.

I'm getting Hollywood quiet with the can. Without, the Quiets still need hearing protection.
Other subsonic ammo is even louder. My dog doesn't run off when I use Quiets and the can.

I fixed an adapter to the barrel and threaded it for a small oil filter to screw onto. Drill a hole thru the filter for the bullet to exit and run subsonic ammunition(Quiets here). The only noise you will hear is the action moving.

Not legal anywhere, but comes apart in seconds and looks good on the garage bench. Just sayin' it works well.

Do you really think it's wise to publicly admit to breaking a major gun law here at a forum that has feds watching it?
