Re: Brake VS Flash hider

The lantac dragon seems to eliminate recoil and muzzle rise. Watch videos of it for yourself.

Re: SDTA Titanium Suppressor Build: The $120 Lightweight Suppressor **NEW VIDEO**

Where is the internal layout diagram? There's no image.

Could you provide more details/pics of what you used to press the baffles?

Re: Preppersdiscount.com "Black Mamba"

It isn't a trap. There are a lot of people who are using preppersdiscount and sdta stuff. There's like a 30 page thread over on ar15.com about it.

Is there a thread that has information/a guide on what to use (socket, ball bearing) and how to press the baffles? I haven't been able to find that by searching.

Re: My Freeze plug baffle forming

The baffles at the start of this thread, what is the easiest method to get concentric center holes in the freeze plugs? Sorry if it's a ridiculous question just curious! Ben I used SD Tactical's jig ($19) with a 1/8" bit and drill. On the C tubes, the ID is 1.03 of the tube so you have to use SD Ta...

Apparently DORMAN has changed their 555-104 freeze plugs.

According to SDTA they have changed this freeze plug and it no longer fits the centering tool they make. On ebay, you can find lots of 555-104, but I have no idea how old their stock is and if they're carrying these 'changed' ones or not. On another forum, someone found that these plugs also fit: Se...

You all seem to be misinterpreting the intention of this post. I'm looking for thoughts purely in the realm of machining these tubes and endcaps into a suppressor.

What did you use for the recoil booster for the .45? The gemtech or the liberty? Or if you didn't use one, does it cycle without the booster?

How heavy does a suppressor need to be to require a booster?

The suppressor I am building is going to weigh about 12 ounces when it is finished. Is this light enough to not require a recoil booster?

The barrel length of the handgun is 4 inches, and its a tilting barrel, short recoil operated handgun (smith and wesson M&P 9c).

Re: 9mm, steel or aluminum?

I have to agree that you should go MagLite. If you are buying a "solvent trap" already, why not buy a tube to screw it on to? If you buy the solvent trap piece and weld it onto something, you are nearly guaranteed to have some misalignment, at which point the rest of your work gets a bullet through...

9mm, steel or aluminum?

What is the preferred material for 9mm suppressor tubes? Steel, or aluminum? The baffles are being made from steel but I'm not sure what to use for the tube. Also, I don't have a lathe so I'm forced to use a pipe cutter of some sort. I'm not sure what type of pipe cutter to buy (preferably one that'...

Re: PVC, or steel?

The apogee tube would be ideal, but I've since decided to go with a smaller diameter (C-Cell size maglite) instead of the larger D-Cell. It seems that they're all in that (D-cell) size.

How are you making the endcaps? Hopefully with a lathe. If that is the case, why not cut the steel tubing with the lathe? If that is not the case, how are you ensuring colinearity? i.e. that the axis of the bore of the silencer is in line with the axis of the firearm. I'm using the threaded (barrel...
