Re: Muzzle loading integral suppressor(new)

I received a email from Armstech a company that made captive piston ammo. Dear Mr. XXXX, With Captive piston ammo, each round is considered a suppressor. I believe that the definition of "suppressor" that ATF uses is "any device intended to decrease the sound signature of a weapon". While captive p...

Re: Integral rear cap thoughts

I have a few 1" o rings that I planned to use in my shop already so I'm not out anything but a few minutes using the cutoff tool to notch out the parts, and while I assumed they may be over-kill, had planned to use them to further help tension the outer tube, from a lack of better explanation I gue...

How do you like the ports and tone? :D

Did you check it against other 3o cal cans?

You could lose some weight / gain some volume in that end-cap

Re: Which taper for suppressor mount to brake?

I think R8 collets have a 17* angle (8.5 on compound), and 5C have 20* (10 on compound). I'm thinking 20* would be about right. With that in mind, what thread to mount can to brake and tighten on taper? I've read both fine and course. I've even seen acme threads used. I'm thinking around 20tpi for ...

Re: Same Volume K-Baffle Cans ... Fat & Short v. Thin & Long.

Equal volumes and not going to extremes with thinness, longer & narrower cans will be quieter. That was my WAG and most of the guys. Like Wallace Simpson in 1938 "You cannot be too rich or too thin" seems to work for cans too. :) :) You could shorten the fat K's skirt to the thin tubes length. That...

ECCO Machine" A lot heavier. Al is 168 lbs per cubic foot. Ti is 283 lbs per cubic foot. A cubic foot of stainless steel is 494 lbs. Sure its heavier but the walls can be thinner in 17/4 900 than in Ti or Allu. So in the end not that crazy much more and you can dip, beat blast or ultrasoon clean th...

Re: KAC snap-on wipes thicknes

I do think that its done because one can have one material in stock.
instead of all kind of white material end stamping / cutting 0,25" is a lot easier than cutting 0,75" obviously.

Now you just have one box of wipes, easy, fast, simple.
