I have a tiny rim fire can that I run on a Beretta Minx in 22 short and Beretta Bobcat 22lr which are tiny pistols and no longer made to my knowledge. Also run this can on a Ruger Mk1 22lr and even my dedicated subsonic 10/22 rifles. I am used to swapping sights to get a sight picture over the can with tiny pistols and usually have best luck finding tall versions in tritium night sights.

Have a pair of Kel Tec PMR 30s which are the 30 round per magazine 22 magnums. Kel Tec says they are not recommended for use with suppressors and learned using a Former 1 can which I built specifically for testing and is easy to fix if get end strikes or baffle strikes that a rim fire can and pistol do not get along. Have discovered my 9mm Osprey can is rated for use on 22 rim fire so gave it a try and the large hole for 9mm bullets eliminate the back pressure, baffle strike and end strike issues while quieting the 22 mag down substantially.

Be careful experimenting with odd ammo and pistols as many will void the warranty on your can. Many rim fire cans warranty is voided if shoot Aguila 60 grain Sniper Subsonic through them. Have have no issues using them through a 1:9 fast twist rifle barrel. Remember when your testing outside of manufacturers recommendations you may tally up a nice repair bill. He seen people ruin cans in the past but luckily I have not destroyed one yet.
