@DirtyHandsRob it's an IDF helmet cover (mitznefet).

Agilite sells these. They turn up everywhere...I found one at a militaria show...seller had no idea what it was.

Just waiting on my SBR to come back and my CMMG build will be done.

For people that run the CMMG stuff, is there any bolt spare parts I need to keep on hand? I remember reading something about common failure points on these but can't seem to recall what that was.

I wish I could

1. Buy that pistol
2. Buy that can

3. Move states

Just threw my DBAL on this thing. I haven't taken it out of the safe in two years...now it needs its own laser.

Can is currently attached using the Gemtech QDA. It'd be about an inch or so shorter without that device.

Alright.  It looks dumb, but if it works, it ain’t dumb.  Thats what I tell myself anyways.

I already had all the major pieces sitting around.  The upper, the Lil’P, the Aurora, the flash light, and the suppressor.  Just got the mounts and put it all together.  For a 22 it is surprisingly nice.

Not sure but I don't think it exists.

For those running thermal and NV scopes on their 22s, do any of these units have any sort of BDC reticle? A .22 more than almost anything else seems to benefit from some sore of BDC to gauge your holds, even inside 100 yards.  Pretty sure the answer is no, but figured its worth asking.

Something like the  Pulsar Core RXQ30V on a Ruger Precision Rimfire could be devastatingly effective for a lot of things, but a BDC could help a lot.

I haven't seen anything thermal with a dedicated 22lr BDC but one or two models of the Halo line have a laser range finder that is supposed to work great. I don't recall if it's for 22lr though

Yes.

The Trail XP50 LRF / Ruger Charger combo I posted earlier does this excellently when paired with Strelok Pro (screenshot attached).  The laser range finding feature of the scope gives precise measurements.

The RXQ30V Core has 10 reticle options. Each reticle has a different pattern with a specific MOA values detailed in the reticle catalog. Hat tip to @UNV for hosting this information.

Going for my first kill tonight. Still waiting on my can. :/

I would not call this a "dedicated" night setup, because it sees more daytime use than anything else, but last night it put the hurtin' on steel at 110 yards.

Nice video, thanks for sharing.  It reminded me that it has been almost a month since I did some suppressed rimfire NV action.  I will be rectifying that over the next couple nights

This is exactly the pistol and sight I settled on. I bought the threaded version of the gun.
Use a Sparrow on mine.
Works like a champ once a few tricks are learned.

For all the reasons SkyPup (as I recall) stated in a post long ago, I settled on the 45 grain Winchester Subsonics in mine. Work 100%. Hit hard.

What rail mount is that up front and what action is the stock for? I'm headed thermal with my CZ455 but a clip on NV would be sweet too

I've never been a bolt gun guy but I'm super happy with the CZ455. It's a riot to shoot and the accuracy using Gemtech subsonic ammo is excellent, it's right at 2 inches at 100 yards and stupid quiet. I mean stupid quiet. We take shots at rabbits and squirrels and they don't react to misses

The PA 22 scope is going to remain the daylight optic, but rather than have a second rifle dedicated to thermal I'm going to try using the Skeet + Holosun on top to make the CZ the all around shooter. I've got a second Wilcox on backorder and am really looking forward to it showing up

It's been more than effective, no complaints at all.
I can see the laser for over 800 yards, but have never attempted anything over say 100 yards due to Identification.

My typical shots are inside of 50 yards.

Others have suggested a Leapers Tactical Scout Slim Rail but some others have said it is flimsy. So I am not sure it would support the 1.7lb weight of a clip-on without bending a bit.
https://www.AR15.Com/media/mediaFiles/81561/Leapers_jpg-1223915.JPG

I inquired with MDT to see if their Remington 700 extended rail could be adapted to a Ruger 10/22 and they said no.  

For years I have been using a monoloc with an old Leupold 2-7 compact. The glass is not great so anything beyond 4x the center of the image gets bad.    

Currently I am investigating if a NV rail can be incorporated into the stock of an after market Ruger stock, but not sure if the price will be tolerable.

I too have been having a hard time finding one, my 10/22 is a KIDD rifle that I put together and has a hogue stock, nothing works with that stock so I might just keep it a daytime gun and run a nighttime AR 22 upper. I just need the barrel and bolt realistically, I have all the parts to make an upper.
Link Posted: 4/23/2020 12:57:25 PM EDT
Just starting to build one.

Picked this up and put a Holosun 403R on it. Form 1 silencer got approved this week and I will be submitting the form 1 to SBR it. Now I just need to figure out which IR laser/illuminator to use for it.

Anyhhoot, it's virgin old school sorta speak at the moment, but looking for some optic options.  Our own Sam thinks the ARCO will do nicely on this, open to any other ideas.

Very sexy. Love my integral .22lr bolt gun, but never bit on the Amphibian or other integrally suppressed pistols when I was in stamp collector mode.

As far as an RDS, I'm still partial to the RMR over the ARCO, especially since this isnt a boxy Glock. Less is more, IMHO, on a pistol like this.

ETA: just noticed this is built on a Ruger MK4, so the reassembly ass pain has been negated. Didn't know they were building Amphibians on MK4s. (Evil thoughts for the credit card stirring.....)
