Check out this ebay auction:
Ebay Auction for 10/22 barrel w/ fake suppressor

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31709&item=7226401961

Is this legal, I thought fake suppressors on real guns were still deemed suppressors?

Sure it's legal.
Note the barrel is COVERED by the fake can. As long as you don't drill the barrel or use any baffles, you are safe.

Also note: The Vector V53 and other clones, use an 8"-10" barrels with a PINNED on FAKE can.

Fake suppressors: DON'T DO IT. It's for the airsoft crowd.

No worries there. I was looking for a threaded 10/22 barrel and ran across that auction.

Threaded 10/22 barrels are cheap on eBay. <$100

FYI, I've seen barrels threaded by 2 prominent sellers on ebay, "tractormandan" "hi-desertdog" and
both were nice specimens. I bought a SS barrel from hi-desertdog and I'm currently using it with
my Gemtech Outback II and TAC16. It's threaded to AR specs, .630" from the muzzle to barrel
shoulder, I believe, instead of the GT outback II's spec of ~.400" so I picked up a .230 spacer
for it. You might want to check the length of the threads with the seller.

Good luck.

Is the tac-16 quite with 22lr?

Not really. I personally think the GT is quieter than the tac16 on both my 10/22 and
22/45. Plus, it looks REALLY silly on my 22/45. ;-)

You've heard it. I had Pat's TAC-16 on my Kadet. I think you even shot it.

You will find some of those barrels are threaded up about 6" from the muzzle as well.
