Re: MAC 10 Suppressor Wipes

From memory 1 1/4" wide and 1/4" thick when I ordered it by 12"x12" piece. When I ordered, I think it was Neoprene with a durometer of about 50 or 60 (how elastic it is without tearing or chunking out. A lot of guys went with a really small hole in the middle, but I found that it really effected my ...

Re: MAC 10 Suppressor Wipes

Lots of good info over on the Uzitalk site. You can also buy the same material from Mcmaster Carr and other places like granger, etc. that is in tube form, 1 1/4' diameter, with a small hole in the middle already. chuck it in a lathe and use a razor and cut the disks easily. I have also done the she...

Re: Suppressed 7.5 5.56

I was under the impression that a 10.3 barrel in 5.56 is barely adequate for cqb. Have you researched performance of your 7.5 barrel? I'm curious how you made the decision to go that short for that caliber. This is my biggest concern. When choosing SBR's for work, I put a lot of research into the r...

Re: New to silencers - help please

1/2x28 is the most common thread pattern for both .22lr and .223/5.56 and is more likely than not, what both of your suppressors are threaded for. Make sure that is what both of your cans are, then match up your barrel threading to them when ordering. The biggest mistake is buying a cheap threaded b...

Re: How to clean a Aluminum baffle

I have one old suppressor that has aluminum baffles, it has a nice gold color anodizing on most of the baffles. I take the lazy approach, I completely disassemble it and place it in a coffee can full of diesel and leave it for about two weeks. Then drip dry for a while, finish up with compressed air...

Re: New 45 suppressor released today

Does anyone know if they have a direct thread mount in the works, or if the Octane 45HD mount will work? This can is set for SBR duty primarily. I had not considered that when I ordered the extra 1/2x28 piston that the piston setup probably would not work on a 9mmAR. I have never had a pistol can be...

Re: New 45 suppressor released today

Thanks for the great review. I was dead set on a Octane 45HD and have even recommended them to friends who have bought them, but after seeing this, and a few days of research, the modularity of this can really made it stand out to me. I ordered it yesterday. The primary function of this suppressor f...

Re: Review: Silencerco Hybrid

I have been looking at picking up a 45 Octane and the Omega, but of course, have been very interested in the new Hybrid now. I can't seem to find anything on the material used in the Hybrid. I'm guessing that since it uses a baffle stack similar to the Octane, that the material is Stainless Steel an...

Re: what lube for suppressed ar15?

So where all do you guys apply grease to your AR's? I just know between the trigger/hammer connection, I guess. the rails on the carrier along side the gas key, just a very minor application, but you can see the wear there first. The other spot im regular on, is the back side of the locking lugs on...

Re: what lube for suppressed ar15?

Nothing wrong with Mobile1, especially since its readily available and inexpensive as far as synthetics go. If you want or need a little more protection, Castrol Syntech 5-50, lasts longer and provides a little better lubricity. I have been Using Amsoil race synthetics, both oil and their high speed...

Re: Original MAC 10/45acp suppressor

I have an original MAC scionic suppressor in .45. I started looking into having Gemtech convert the internals to a more modern system, but decided against it later. The MAC-10 is such a loud clack box, that a quieter suppressor isn't going to make that much difference. Most of your noise that is lef...

Re: Short cycling

Thanks for the heads up. I have never owned an adjustable block, the Seekins on my brothers build was my first experience with one, it has worked fine for him so far. I have used a switchblock that comes on Robinson Armaments XCR or whatever acronym they have, it has a switchblock that worked very w...

Re: Short cycling

I recently went through this with a 16" build that my brother put together. After lots of testing, the gas block was out of spec and was not sealing properly on the barrel. He ended up purchasing a Seekins Precision adjustable block and we replaced it, finally got it to stop short stroking, and run ...

The material would be sold to someone who is not intending for it to be a suppressor, then once they have it, you cou...
