I want a .22 caliber, CO2 powered airgun, but one with a threaded barrel so I can screw on a suppressor. Anyone know of one, new or used?

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Maybe pick up an xs60c or a qb and have the barrel threaded.  Or get a mod that just slips on the barrel. I forget who I got mine from.

Dunka. I may just buy one, and have the local machine shop thread it.

I have the x60, but in PCP (FDPCP). very accurate barrel. Never had a QB, maybe someone will comment.
Alan, why do you want to go CO2?

I have a QB78 Deluxe in .22 I got from BigFive for a $100. It has no thread, but I have a slip on from Rocker1 that makes this thing super quiet.

Steveoh, does it have a dovetail for mounting optics? I've never paid attention to one.

As Steve says, quiet! I need it like another hole in the head. I have a suppressor I can use, but "I" was unable to find an adapter. Perhaps I searched incorrectly.

The local Big5 didn't have one, and didn't know when they would. The manager (whom I know) wasn't working over the long weekend. He'll be in tomorrow, and I'll ask.

Yep, it has a dovetail. Pretty simple gun. Copy of Crosman 160. Pretty easy to modify for a lot more power too.

Rocker1 can make you an adapter also. He made me slip on adapters so I could switch a single Moderator between my smaller airguns. They are so quiet you wonder if the airgun has stopped making power. A session with a chrony proves otherwise.

Of course Neal Clague can make you one, and a bunch of other folks. I think Rocker1 charges $50 for a moderator.
