    Trying to decide if a SBR cricket .22 cut down to just past the stock would be a cool cheap suppressor host.

    Someone talk me out of it :paranoid:

    Well kinda.. but my kids is black.. and I will probably use another black one.

    If I can find a cricket for $40-$50 I would totally do it.

    Man today I was just thinking about threading my daughters cricket so I could use it for a bolt suppressor host :D

    Nah, not a real fan of the cricket rifles. They are cheap I suppose but for a little more you could get a much nicer Savage or something.

    The crickets are a piece of crap, you may want to look at the Savage Cub. Same size, but with a real trigger and bolt.
    They can also be threaded (for silencer) without removing the front sight if you decide not to SBR.

    True. Cricket isn't a very durable gun. Kinda a waste to register it, and modify it.

    How about the CZ452 scout, for the same concept. Shorter/lighter rifle supressor host. The youth stock, keeps it light and handy. The CZ452 scout is on the $250 range.

    Basically, for a little more money, get a youth .22 that's made on a substantial action, would be better in the long run. I don't like pink stocks.

    Its sweatbeard. He is used to wasting money. But, at least with a stamp he is less likely to sell it.

    Go ahead and thread it...it'll just be something I'll hear about and never get to shoot anyways. Think about hitting up the range, instead of thinking up new places you can stick a suppressor.
