Just an idea.
One wonders... Hell, I'll just say it.
I think I want a marlin 981T, a small magnification scope, and a supressor. This is contingent on the 1:16, 16 groove barrel being able to stabilize Aguila's 60gr subsonics.
Why? The 981T is a bolt action... no cycling noise. It's tube fed, and can accept any length cartridge by design. The tube carries TWENTY FIVE .22 shorts, for example. It could be shorts, longs, LRs, heavy subsonics, light subsonics, colibris, super colibris... just run the bolt.
And with a supressor, utterly quiet. It's... it's NINJA GUN.
As well would be a suppressed .38 special lever gun, but that's another post :)
