    Using a Harvester 30 on 22 rimfires?

    I have a 22 rimfire rifle and a 22 magnum pistol with threaded barrels. Will the rimfire ammo damage the Harvestor 30? I know 22 rimfire ammo is Dirtier than centerfire ammo. Anybody have any real world experience using you centerfire 30 cal. suppressor on rimfire firearms?

    Looks like the model 30 is factory sealed precluding a cleaning disassembly. A few rounds shouldn't hurt, but ya, .22 rf are dirty. A .32" or so hole in the suppressor will lose a little efficiency but it will tone down the noise significantly. I'd call the factory and see what they say. AC

    Shooting dirty lead ammo in a sealed can is a good way to work towards buying a replacement. I would get a separate can for 22 that you can take apart to clean.

    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

    It seems to me like that would be like the big bells the guys put on their diesels, make it louder not quieter.
