Any Private Person Actually Got an Obsidian 45 Yet?

Has anyone actually got an Obsidian 45 yet? What do you really think about it? Are you using Rugged or Silencerco thread adapters? What guns you running your Obsidian 45 on? Any problems or issues? I purchased one around the first week of September 2016 on a Form 4 via a trust, my guess is it won't ...

Re: Excellent chance of 2 pro-gun Bills to pass in 2017

I doubt either will pass. One problem is that some states only allow silencers if they are registered with ATF. So if no registration, then the states may not allow them until they change their individual state laws. Could just open up another can of worms. For CCW reciprocity, if states allow recip...

Re: First attempt .22LR suppressor.....pleased & thanks to you

Very nice. What did the suppressor end up weighing? How about a video of you shooting the suppressor?

Your success make me want to buy a lathe and give it a try myself, but I am thinking about moving in the next year and figure I should wait till after I move.

Great job.

Hello, Winchester 540 and HS-6 were the same powder, like a lot of other Winchester and Hodgdon powder pairs are (example: W296 and H110).

Re: Correct timing of Trifecta flash hider?

It does not matter, but I used an extra shim to time my flash hider so the slot was up. I figured that put the solid fork down and it might kick up less dirt if I shoot prone without the suppressor. I have not tried shooting prone without my SPECWAR 7.62 since I got it, so can't confirm if it makes ...

Re: Baffles from planchets

The formed planchet kind of looks similar to the baffle from a Parker Hale 22 sound moderator I remember using when I was in England 20 years ago. At that time a person could walk in to a gun shop in England, pay 17 Pounds and walk out with the sound moderator in hand. It was considered impolite to ...

Re: 762 Specwar Brake mount

I found out the SPECWAR brake mount came with shims after I got a set of shims elsewhere too. Just make sure nobody is shooting right next to you if you shoot without the suppressor. I did and my wife was pretty pissed at me. I could also feel the blast bouncing off my range box back at me. With the...

Re: .22 keyholing at 3 yards

Just a thought, have you looked at the muzzle crown closely? Could there be an accumulation of lead and powder fouling that has got blasted back at the muzzle and built up, possibly causing the bullet to start to yaw? With the tumbling at 3 yards I would think you would have had a baffle strike by n...

Re: New to suppressors - picked up my first can.

Make sure you put some kind of oil on the knurled lock ring to prevent it from rusting. I have never had a problem with my guns rusting, but the knurled lock ring on the SPECWAR 762 seems to want to pick up some minor surface rust if I don't oil it after each use. After I got my SPECWAR 762, I had t...

Re: Wrong Length on a Form 1

Thanks Bender for the quick reply.

I will write the letter this weekend and take care of it. If it was not for a a buddy asking how long the SBR turned out because he thought it seemed shorter than 31."5 I told him, I would not have measured it.

Thanks again,

Wrong Length on a Form 1

Hello, I submitted a eForm 1 for an AR-15 SBR back in early February and it was approved in late June. I miscalculated the overall length and put 31.5" for the length of the SBR with the 10.5" barrel on the F1. Once I got it all put together, I measured it at 28" with the stock extended and not incl...

Re: Subsonic ammo

Does shooting with subsonic ammo make that much of a difference? Those who have a suppressor, do you use subsonic ammo or regular ammo? The subsonic I have found online is pretty pricey. I was out yesterday shooting my Specwar 762 on my 16" 300 Blackout. You can definitely tell the difference betwe...

Why did you begin a firearms related manufacturing business in Connecticut? Seems like a poor choice for any shooting related business. Same for NY, IL, CA, MD, HI, or any other state that does not support the 2nd Amendment.

Re: Another Specwar 762 Question

Thanks for the update Andrew.

Unfortunately for me, I submitted my ATF Form 4 in July 2013, about 2-3 weeks before ATF eForms came online. So I doubt I will get the suppressor before you guys get the HK-91 flash hider mount for the Specwar 762 out. So I am in no rush.
