Re: 30 cal Suppressor Build - Forum 1

So how come I can’t find any CAD files for .30cal cans? I have looked and looked but came up empty. Is there a reason for this. While the folks here are generally very helpful, spoonfeeding the masses with CAD files generally doesn’t happen. Gun410, I know it will waste material, but if you would c...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

Hopefully close to the final baffle design. Trying to make the skirt port a little small but easily enlarged with a needle file. In regards to the tube, I am going to try to use what I have and just rough profile the OD first so if it goes out of round I can bore the ID last and hopefully get it rou...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

.... So back to the question at hand. With a 1 7/16”-28 ID threaded grade 5 tube how much additional unthreaded material thickness would you feel comfortable with if you were trying to make it as small as possible? Do be aware that seamless Ti tube is heavily stressed from manufacturing, likes to d...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

Not intending to leave it thick. It was a way to get Grade 5 tube and have material to make the I.D. and OD the size I wanted. Planning to bore to 1.375” and turn it down thin everywhere except where I need extra material for the threaded joints. Was planning to make the shorter extended section of ...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

It isn’t very thin wall tube. It is 2mm wall I believe.... 1.34ish ID and 1.57ish O.D. I made the rear cap with 1 7/16-28 threads..... so sounds like you would be more than comfortable with .03” meat left on the tube since you are taking 36 thread pitch out of .035 wall and having no trouble. I hadn...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

What do you guys suggest for tube wall thickness in addition to the major thread diameter. Trying to decide on the smallest safe diameter at the rear of the tube where the end cap screws in. I am using 7/16-28 2a threads. I would like to keep the O.D. At 1.5” but .03” wall thickness sounds a little ...

Re: 300 Black Out Welded Can

If you can find H900 I would go that route, at least for the baffles. Max hardness on 17-4 is only in the low 40's and if it were my can that is what I would pick. If there is an advantage to H1150 for welding maybe use it for your tube and caps.

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

After a quick search it appears there have been people that claim they even submitted prints of modular designs with there form 1 paperwork that were approved. I would think as common as it is these days it shouldn’t be an issue as long as unused parts couldn't be assembled into a second suppressor.

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

Has anyone built a form 1 modular can?..... or is the general consensus that that is not allowed unless you are an 07/02? My hope was to do a 9”ish can with the front 3” or so of the tube being a second section that could be removed ( along with the baffles that were housed within) and the front cap...

Re: 30cal Integral Bolt Rifle Build UPDATE 5/11/2019

I'm not really noticing clipping. I would think they would all sound about the same volume if hey were clipping, and there seemed to be variation.

They seemed to be shot in order of quietest to loudest, but none of them sounded loud.....just different. Is that similar to the "in person" perception?

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

I hadn’t noticed the tunnel being long. Certainly compared to yours it goes on forever, and it is longer than the TiRant.....but the TiRant bore is quite a bit longer than yours. I have no idea which is better since this is my first attempt at a K/X baffle I will work on shortening that up. When you...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

Yeh that feels like less of a stretch.... and the thinner it is the more hassle it will be machining. I just want eliminate unnecessary weight where I can.

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

I know I have seen the discussion on other threads, but what do you think I can get away with for skirt and minimun thickness in general on these K baffles? They are going to be grade 5 Ti and the can will be intended for 9mm, 300 blk.....does .030" thickness seem safe? I was originally thinking .05...

Re: 30cal Integral Bolt Rifle Build UPDATE 5/5/2019

Now, for a vote. As there's no need to port near the barrel's chamber, should I port near the muzzle (before the threads)? I have a large over-barrel, reflex volume that isn't being used. I also have the option of cutting slits into the rear portion of the blast chamber. Thus, allowing the initial ...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

No induction equipment, the bonus with the A2.... aside from working with it regularly and lots of free drop to play with, in thin parts like a baffle it would take little effort with a torch to heat the bore to red and air cool. It will have some scale but once it is tempered I can clean it up and ...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

I am considering using A2 for my blast baffle and doing a differential heat treat that would only harden the tip of the cone around the bore to slow erosion. I could also use it for the mount/flash hider and make the tapered surface harder than 17-4 ever could be..... it would have to be tempered t...

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

Thanks for the reply, I was just a little concerned that with hardened 17-4 only being in the low 40’s that there might be issues when it was locked down on the taper. Those brakes are nitrided though right?.... that would be basically like case hardening.

Re: Two Form 1’s in the design phase

The piston for 1/2-28 was noticeably heavier than the 45 piston so I went in and bored out the front 1” of the piston to the same sized bore as the 45.... that should allow a little expansion to make the blast baffle a bit more effective without adding more gap. Thinking about putting in a shallow u...
