Have a 10/22 tactical version with a nice scope. It has always shot awesome, until I mount a suppressor, then it shoots about 25 inches low. Anyone have any suggestions ?
Thanks

What silencer do you have mounted? Does it shoot a consistent group 25 inches low? 25 inches low at what range?

Its the sparrow, I tried it at 30 yards. I can’t tell more than that because it took me a bit to figure out where I was hitting, since it was off the board. once i did I stopped shooting

25" low at 30 yards after you add the suppressor is a significant drop and not normal.

I would start by disassembling the Sparrow and inspecting it for damage/projectile strikes to its monolithic core, end cap, etc.

I agree with DrewBone. A few inches at 30 yards would be fine but 25" low is excessive. My guess is either something was loose or I have seen drastic shifts in POI like that with threads that are not concentric to the bore.

I'm guessing there was no visible damage to the can. Do you have another 22 can or know someone that does?

If the "can" shoots fine on other platforms, both a pistol and a rifle , then it is obviously not the can. That leaves the rifle in question and first thing i would look at is the "threads"? Are they straight, concentric etc?
