Don't put your Gemtech in the ultrasonic cleaner, don't put any aluminum anything it it.

If you aren't familiar with cavitation, you will be after an ultrasonic cleaner turns your aluminum can into swiss cheese.
No, not the baffles, I just meant the spring which is steel.

That's the same reason you should use non water based ablatives, like wire pulling gel, in a "wet" can that has aluminum baffles.

Spit works well as an ablative. :laugh:

That would take a lot of spit. Would practically have to be a chronic drooler to make that work...

Thanks for the ultrasound idea - I wish I had thought of it earlier. It just hit me that it can be used for almost anything not aluminum. You could virtually drop your slide in for example and let it do the majority of the work for you. Do you clean your other guns like that? And if so, which one do you use?

I use it to clean my silencer guts, reloading dies and other random stuff. I clean my guns the old fashion way.

I use mine to clean my bolt/bolt carrier from my AR. Works wonders.

Well I had my 10/22 barrel threaded (only 8 months in advance of getting my stamp) and had the barrel cut down from 18" to 16". As I'm sure you're aware, the front sight goes away when you do that and I want to find an after market bolt-on or on that attaches by tapping the barrel that will work with the factory flip-up rear sight.

I have exhausted my google-fu prowess searching for this to no avail, and am hoping that one of the resident 10/22 gurus might know if this even exists. This is nothing urgent because there's a scope mounted on it, but I'm a believer in having iron back-ups.

Why not have a dove-tail re-cut for it?

Not quite answering jgreenberg's question - Various options http://www.nodakspud.com/NDS-22.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The NDS-44 front sight in combination with an NDS-26 might fit the bill.

f3rr37's suggestion is more straight-forward.

Good question. Because the dovetail wasn't cut into the barrel, it was raised above the barrel. That means that without finding a way to raise it, any standard dovetail replacement front sight will be too low to be used with the flip-up sight that is already mounted to the barrel:

Thanks, I saw those. I'm trying to use the rear flip-up sight that is factory mounted on the barrel.

Take the left over bit, bore out the barrel so all you have left is the wider part with the front sight mounted on it, then find a way to make it fit on the barrel you've got now. I made that up but maybe it'll work?

These guys do what you're asking for, and are on my short-list for some of the work that I have in mind (favorable reviews from around the 'net): http://jpgrips.com/page4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Now you need a Butler Creek speed loader for those 25 round mags.
I have a older 10-22 with a Bushnell scope ( I bought it that way at a gun show)
I added a BiPod, a mag release extension and 2) 25 round clips.
Economical fun shooting and a great companion to my Browning Buckmark Contour 22lr.

Has anyone tried using the Butler Creek speedloader with the new Ruger BX-25 magazines? It says on the packaging for the Butler Creek speedloader that they only work with Butler Creek Steel Lips mags, but I was wondering if that was really true.

Anyone tried?

The spectre 2 rules.

You forgot to add a urethane bolt buffer.

Thanks for reminding me - I added that on your recommendation. Post fixed.

Videos coming next week with regular & subsonic ammo. Can't wait to see how quiet this thing is... :D

That's the same scope I put on my son's takedown. I haven't been able to get it in the bag without first removing the scope. How'd you do it?

I don't know how to answer that other than by saying: just slide it in there.

Yeah, yeah, I know :twss:
