Re: hole pattern on K baffle design

This is a old school K baffle with mouse hole. https://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x255/johnnyo223/CIMG1206.jpg The mouse hole was abandoned after it was found they do not add to suppression on pistol caliber suppressors. I have never seen any study that says this applies to rifle caliber suppressor...

Re: Silencer on a gas delayed blowback pistol?

Gas delay has been used on one of the best suppressed pistol ever. The H&K P9S plus the P-7,P-13 and the mighty desert eagle use gas delay. I wish more major caliber pistols used frame mounts as barrels are easy to build and no Nielsen device is needed. If you are having problems getting a barrel ma...

Re: Which Engravers are people using?

Most places that do awards and trophy's plus many jewelers and pawn shops have the equipment.If the tube is carbon steel electrolysis is fairly simple for even the kitchen table hobbyist.
If the laser removes metal then you can use that meathead too.

Good to see you online its been awhile.

Yes the stepped cone is better in terms of db numbers over the straight cone....without porting ! Clipping and or base porting is almost a new science and will alter performance of either baffle.

Re: Turbocharger baffles

These turbo baffles feature a long throat and that tends to make bullets wobble.Baffles should strip gases from the bore line and not line them up for the next bore hole for maximum suppression.Disruption of gases in non symmetrical ways helps retention of these gases. Cones with some porting is pro...

I heat 416 to a cherry red to stave off rust from forming.They also can be hardened with relative ease.Standard HSS or cobalt tooling and brush on cutting oil is all that is needed to machine.

Re: 30 Cal Form 1 Project

You might be able to lessen FRP and increase SPL losses with a reduction in blast chamber size ie: to tune the suppressor.You also might be able to create secondary expansion chambers through porting or the placement of spacer rings within the stack.
