Re: O1 FFL repair suppressor?

I am ONLY talking about silencers here and no other firearms. According to the ATF published NFA Handbook....... only an 07/02 can replace silencer parts. "Page176 NFA HANDBOOK" "A person who is licensed under the Gun Control Act (GCA) to manufacture firearms and who has paid the special (occupation...

Re: Non-serviceable suppressor

It is a Griffin Armament M4SD. It doesn't list material in the specs other than, heat treated, high temp, corrosion resistant alloy. I'm shooting it on a Ruger American bolt action .223, and a 16" AR15. You need to call Griffin and ask them. If they say stainless steel then you can dip it. In all r...

Re: Cheapest way to get accurate lead quantity tests on suppressor residue?

Only way to get an accurate measurement is to have the lead separated from the carbon and other buildups.

This is not a cheap process and on top of that you are needing it done on 6 different samples.

600 pounds for that is not that bad a price considering.

Re: How about another 50 BMG build

No one else has mentioned your design, so I will. 1- That's a lot of unharnessed blast chamber. You could add a couple of cones just in there. Unless you're intending to use a muzzlebrake, there aren't any obstructions to redirect the gas jet off of Boreline. 2- Instead of scooping the 1st baffle, ...

Re: Wood Baffle Parts Making Need To Be A SOT?

Cutaway silencers even if they are non functional are still classified as silencer. As far as the ATF is concerned they are just really poor performing silencers.

Re: Wood Baffle Parts Making Need To Be A SOT?

Bender has commented, several times, that cutaways are still silencers. Cut slits in the sides (like an Omega) and no longer serviceable as a "part." (W/o substantial modification. Just like flat washers.) I wonder how the tone would be affected if the baffles were made of wood. LavaRed says that i...

Depends on when the M99 was made, old ones had 3/4-20 and newer ones have 3/4-24. You can call Barrett and they will tell you what you have if you haven't/can't gage the threads yourself.
