Re: 9mm host pistol recommendations

Effective 9mm subsonic ammo is a high pressure adventure, +P+ pressures can be seen. All steel pistols with strong lockups are recommend. I like the CZ-75 for its strength accuracy and reliability.

Re: 458 SOCOM

I figured on using 10-12" of 1.750" OD tube with a .054" wall which would give me 1.642" inside OD to work with. I will be shooting 450 grain subs 99% of the time out of a Rem. 700 with a 16" barrel. In your opinion could I get satisfactory results with a 1.384" core and 1.500" tube?. A 1.500 tube ...

Re: 458 SOCOM

I would use Ti for the outer tube based upon upkeep alone.You can give it a brushed finish or heat it for a rainbow look. The .458 is a low pressure round that should respond well to most baffles.Clipped cone close spaced baffles of 1.375-1.500" in a longish suppressor of 8-9" should allow a high de...

Quiet bore dot com says their aluminum 30 cal solvent trap has been form 1ed and put on up to 300 win mag. Don't know how long it will last on 300 mag.

Re: Advice plz: 5.56 end cap hole size, engraving location

Aluminum is a hazard with the peak pressures a 5.56 will reach.This is more about the tube not the core. Aluminum stress fatigue is well known and unforgiving in failure. A well designed tube and baffle system could out live you while poor material choice could fail at any time. I'm shocked at the b...

Re: Building Fat Rimfire can, need Baffle suggestions

I would fill the can with baffles and use a very short blast chamber. Hard to make a mistake on baffle choice with rimfire. You can use Ti for the blast baffle but I would use 17-4 Ph900 or other hard SS. Rimfire suppressor blast baffles suffer more from erosion from the priming compound so a hard ...

Re: Building Fat Rimfire can, need Baffle suggestions

I would close fill the can with baffles and use a very short blast chamber. 17-4Ph900 or other hard Stainless Steel is a blast baffle option.
Almost any baffle can do well in .22RF if enough are used and design good.

Re: Will you show me yours if I show you mine?

I dont know theres a lot of science behind a screen packed suppressor. Just a perforated tube wrapped with screen. as the bullet goes down the tube the gasses get pushed out into the screen and cool and are trapped by the screen. The screen burnes up fairly quickly and it is a maintenance item to c...

All .22rf suppressors will get very fouled no mater what baffle is used.A clam shell like the Sparrow will ease disassembly.

Hi Chris been a long time.

It can be done safely with a 1.00" tube or a larger one built of better material.The suppression of a rim-fire is no problem even at 5.00" but more length would help the .223 using a 1.00" tube in my opinion.

The bore size of the suppressor has nothing to do with the legality of using a larger caliber than listed, its the intent of use that is in question. If you wish to err on the side of legality list the actual bore size. Many .22LR cans have a .280 bore so technically the use of 7mm on down is no pro...
