Re: Newbie

I was taught to swab the bore after every shot, black powder is dirty, and may corrode stainless even. and make sure to post LOTS of pics and updates how that is working for ya' Got me intereste...

Re: AAC Cyclone vs Thunderbeast 30P-1

I finally got to try out a few Thunder Beast Arms suppressors at this years Suppressor shoot in Washington State. The Thunderbeast stuff has a stainless/Inconel cone shaped thread adapter that forces the suppressor to center when tightened. Pretty Smart. 200 yards wasn't a problem with no ear protec...

Re: YHM Cobra M2 45 and Subsonic 300 Blackout

Makes me wonder why YHM said "No" Liberty Mystic is a similar mono core design inside, and its rated for 223 & 300blk. Think its salesmanship? Liability? I know the YHM is aluminium,maybe the threads can't handle the pressure... I have a Contender in 44 and 1911A1, and I haven't heard ANY manufactur...

Re: Khar Arms CW45 Suppressor Build [info gathering]

ATF has never looked at anything more than paperwork on form 1 stuff. But, I do know they go undercover in plain clothes and visit gun shows, gun shops and ranges actively looking for leads.

Re: Khar Arms CW45 Suppressor Build [info gathering]

Micheal, Honestly, its not worth it to try to make your own. For the same amount for wait time as a form 1 from ATF you could just Quicken a trust and get a passport/lawyer/ back notary to bless it and just buy one of these from a dealer a few hundred bucks: http://www.thompsonmachine.net/?page_id=9...

I live in WA. One part of a machine gun in your possession counts as a machine gun. Including a M-16 bolt.

Re: The New YHM Stinger came in this week, nice looking cans

I own a MITE, and really happy with the performance and effectiveness with it so far, but
I would have rather had a baffle design like this or the Sparrow instead of the slant SoundTech design

I would love to see something like this for the M2 in 45acp!
