I took my CAR AR15 with a lightweight barrel. Attached a gooseneck mount with an aimpoint on it and proceeded to make a noise friendly pellet gun. The sound of the pellet hitting a coke can at 50 feet is loader than the primer strike and other sounds of the action.

-Deprime and resize a .223 case.
-Put in a new primer
-take a .22 cal lead pellet and some athletic tape prewrap foam
-cut a small rectangle of the foam and have it act as a "patch" to firmly hold the pellet in the case neck.
-push the pellet in the neck flush with the case opening. (if you go too far or not have enough foam to hold tension you will push the pellet into the case and have to throw it away.)
-load the cartridge into the chamber, aim and fire.
-of course you will have to manually cycle it.

Performance:
-maybe 350-400 FPS
-quieter than a red ryder
-1.5" groups at 50 feet
-probably drops 4-6" inches from boreline at 50'

Drawbacks:
-if the pellet doesnt exit the barrel and you later shot a real cartridge in it you could blow your face up and die.

The only pellet gun in existence that was once transferred by 4473?

Worth the read for that line right there. LOL!

Easier way.

Remove bolt/carrier group.
Replace with Ciener or other .22lr conversion kit
Put Aguila colibri in mag,
insert mag in gun
chamber round
shoot.

With a suppressor...........Click.

You don't need a suppressor at all. The projectile from a Colibri (fired from a rifle) hitting the target is much louder than the muzzle pfffft.

Or you could just buy a 10/22 for $175 from Wal-Mart and some Aguila Colibris. Less work and a lot less money.

I wonder if anyone's tried the old wax bullet trick with an AR.

yep I did that the other day shooting a empyt milk jug with some colibri all you here is "Click" "TWAP!"

There have been "kits' sold for doing exactly this--for firing a pellet out of a conventional gun. Usually they were loaded just as you did--one at a time, which is painfully slow in use. The only two I ever read reviews of were not favorable reviews.
And anyway,
for half that $900 you could get yourself an Air Force Talon, that comes with a US-legal (unregistered) integral "airgun" silencer:
www.airgunsofarizona.com/AirForce%20TalonSS.html
....
There are a few designs of airguns out there now that allow use of an integral silencer. Usually the silencer tube completely encloses the entire barrel and attaches to the airgun's receiver, not the barrel.
------
Or skip the silencer and go for the Airrow Stealth, cause it's got "the look":
www.swivelmachine.com/html/stealth.htm
I dunno what the Airrow costs, but I seem to remember it was quite a lot, and I remember that it has gone through many various prototype stages. Something like the Shrike of the airgun world.....

Yep, no need for a can with colibris out of a rifle.

I did the same thing with less work.
1-AR15
1-.22 conversion kit
1-brick Colibris

In the PRNJ ALL air guns are considered and transfered as GUNS!

interesting....just thinking out loud here....what if you put the pellet in the chamber so it just touches the rifling, then just fire a case with just a primer? would elminate the need for the patch. Lining up the pellet might be kinda hard to do though

I super-glued BBs to blanks when I was in the Army. Not real accurate but fun nonetheless. Much better than the cleaning rod down the barrel trick.

Why goe through all that trouble and just get the real deal
