Re: Spiral Baffle Design....yay or nay?

Are you saying that the baffle in the picture is not one made by Greg? If so, I would find that odd because the picture stems from an interview that Greg did with the Firearm blog in his factory and it was labeled as the hexical. Greg has used this to build a coaxial design.Others have used it but ...

Re: Spiral Baffle Design....yay or nay?

Not up on the latest greatest baffle designs but this was perhaps one of the only commercially successful spiral baffle designs that I know of. It was created by Greg at GSL Technology (part of Gemtech back in the day). It was invented back in the 80's. This was a baffle that was talked about but n...

Re: Booster-less micro cans vs slide weight

I don't think it's going to be that simple. I want/wanted to do the same thing but gave up on the idea and going to just run a booster. I would think you'd have better luck trying to keep your weight further rearward than looking at total weight. the further your weight is from the fulcrum point th...

Re: broken suppressor - now a paperweight?

Op do not take this the wrong way but did you really make an effort to find the parts?
I just find it hard to believe that a malfunctin in a 22 can could send the parts into the abyss.

Re: 10/22 bolt buffer from Delrin

Al Paulson talked about machining an annular groove in the rear of the Ruger barrel to hold an O-ring
to help quiet the bolt slamming forward. He also spoke about what you guys are referring to on the back side of the bolt.

Volume I page 238-239.

Re: some one please school me on aluminum

The Gemtech Raptor was made entirely from 6061-T6 and 2024 and it was a great performer @9.1"L x1.4" D. I use to hammer the hell out ...

Both are old tech and just copies of maxims high bore in square form. If square worked good in 22lr you would think there would be a few already.

Re: Need advice on either Ti-Rant 9 or 9s

As I said if you like to shoot a lot you will have to recharge the system after "X" number of rounds and that might get old. Of course you can just shoot it dry and deal with the increased noise.

Re: Need advice on either Ti-Rant 9 or 9s

If you like to shoot a lot I would think the 9s would get old quick.
If you want to go small go small and look into a can like the DeGroat "Nano" or the Thompson Machine "Poseidon".
