    Nope, but I imagine you'd get tons of powder fouling in the can unless you were using the Aquila Colibri/SuperColibri ammo, but then it likely wouldn't cycle the action.

    Didn't Chad from iraqivet8888 do something just like that? Something with an inch or inch and a half long barrel? I think they have a video on it.

    I had a 4" barreled Ruger MKIII, and it was much less accurate than the 5" and 6" barreled versions I'd owned before. And it's not just due to the sight radius-- I mounted optics on all these guns and tested them across sandbags, too.

    I don't think I would be happy with the accuracy of a Ruger .22 pistol that only had a 1.5" barrel and a 5" silencer.

    The length of my AAC suppressor on the end of my 5" barreled Buck Mark doesn't bother me.

    A guy on here had nonlib cut down a buckmark to around a 2" barrel a couple years ago. Im sure someone has done a Ruger the same.

    22/45 lite with 4.4" barrel, groups 2-3" at 25 yards. I wish it was more accurate, so now I'm looking to get a Mark IV target. A couple inches vs better accuracy, accuracy wins for me. But I would love to turn that Mark IV Target into a Sicario!

    The Ruger from "Assassins" was an over-barrel design, pretty cool.
