Re: Continued use Effectivness

There are two things that decrease suppressor performance, 1. erosion opening up the baffle apertures, and 2. volume reduction caused by the buildup of carbon and etc. A standard US industry rifle silencer will last 10's of thousands of rounds, mainly dependent on avoiding exposing the suppressor to...

Yeah. I've seen pictures of cans with heavy firing schedules where inconel blast baffles still looked good, but the SS baffles immediately following had the apertures worn larger.

Re: #4 Buckshot is 'best'?

Regarding minimum penetration and the FBI spec, it makes more sense if you understand the reasoning behind that minimum value. Look up Dr. Martin Fackler and Dr. G. K. Roberts for all the information on the subject you could hope for. In short, minimum penetration isn't the only criteria. 12" in bal...

Re: Suppressed 12: subsonic

With rifles it's both. Most of the time a rifle can be made to run with changes to gas ports, gas port location, weight of reciprocating parts, the right powder and bullet weight, etc. Some company I can't remember had a subsonic 5.56 load that would cycle a semi, though I recall being told the qual...

Re: Another Variation on "short 5.56 suppressors"

The only comments I feel qualified to add are: 1. Don't be afraid of thread-on cans. Rocksett will absolutely prevent them from backing off and isn't semi permanent, as some people seem to fear. They do save the weight a quick attach muzzle device would add (a quarter pound, typically). 2. I've neve...

Re: No Quick Datach...What are my options??

I highly recommend Rocksett. I degrease both threads and use a couple of drops and have never had my thread-on can come loose, despite many sessions of rapid fire.

Re: Specwar or Saker

If it's going to be subsonic only, I would investigate 9mm pistol can sound performance and wear when used with .300blk subs. Pistol cans will be a hell of a lot lighter than a .30 Specwar and, since you aren't going to be shooting without the can, you can use a threaded mount with some Rocksett.

I'm looking at the 2013 AAC thread specsheet, specifically at the two 5.56 diagrams. On the first, it gives the spec for the special thread R. Silvers made to provide tighter fit with the Ranger 2. Interestingly, 0.563" is listed as the minimum shoulder diameter, though it doesn't seem clear to me t...

Re: Need advice on a 5.56 suppressor

If you're still interested in opinions, Saker K or Specwar K get my vote. I like the Saker K for the lighter thread attach option. The ability to add a flash hider to the front of the can intrigues me as well, as every can I've ever shot has had quite a lot of flash at night compared to A2 flash hid...

Re: Socom 556 acceptable sound reduction?

Have you fired the SOCOM 556 at night? My understanding was that better flash suppression was a goal, since most cans I've fired at night (always on 16" barrels) exhibited surprisingly large first round flashes and 2-4" long caliber-sized jets of red/orange flame on subsequent shots.

Cleaning is a chore, but no more so than any other 22 can I think: Getting it all apart with the ...

Honestly man, you won't know if you like it until you can shoot with it, hear it being shot by someone else, and can then likewise compare it to some other cans. For me, I found as long as it's rated around 140dB or lower, it sounds fine. I like the little "snap" sound a decent rifle can makes when ...

Re: Has anyone on here actually "shot out" a silencer?

A buddy's Ops Inc 5.56 can had some crazy looking erosion on the blast baffle after roughly 10k rounds mixed on 16" and 10" ARs. It was about 2x the size of what I'd expect the baffle aperture to be and was a strange irregular shape. It was louder than a newish AAC Ranger 2 and a Surefire 556-212 sh...

A pre-treating method to reduce .22 suppressor baffle cleaning time seems to have been found.

It is near the bottom of the article. Search for "Silicon" to find it quickly. The man claims heating clean .22 suppressor parts and dipping them in silicon oil results in parts that resist lead/carbon fouling accumulation. It is not clear from the review how many cleaning sessions this is good for,...
