Re: 45 Raptor Suppressor?

Reach out to Cory @ Lane Suppressors. They have a Scorpion 458 which may be suitable for use.

Re: monocore machining?

Seems like it is overly complicated and will add significantly to the time to manufacture each monocore. Very labor intensive to access that jig and unbolt/rebolt each one of those caps as you machine each cavity.

Re: monocore machining?

What are the circles, just inside the row of bolts? Those holes are in the jig to allow machining of the scallops tangential to the OD of the monocore. See the isometric view of the monocore, and of the jig below. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v87/FastIndy/AR/SD2010ExplodedSectionREV.jpg http:/...

Re: Second suppressor project: 45-70 handi rifle

I'm not sure if you're asking me if I did it, or if you missed a word and asking how much it cost. I didn't do it myself, I took it to a local FFL 07/02, Dobbs Defense . Barrel removal & threading was $150 from the local shop. If I had pulled the barrel they would have charged only $100. Now that I ...

I also have a real Marlin 45-70 rifle (before the Rem acquisition), but those are a "little" harder to suppress due to the front sight "being in the way" :) Will I also have a real Marlin 1895 that I've suppressed.

Re: Tirant 45 Piston/Spacer help

Typically .45ACP barrels are going to be .578-28 unless it is a metric barrel then it will be 16x1 which you probably already know since you have the HK45.

Re: Tirant 9mm or Rugged Obsidian 45 for 9mm

A couple of people on this forum have commented that the Obsidian has a noticeable FRP. Is this also noticed with the Octane 45? They both seem pretty similar in design and construction so I would be surprised if there was much of a difference. I don't notice one from my Octane9. That is strange, I...

Re: Leidenfrost Effect for Next Generation Baffle Surfaces?

Honestly it's hard to imagine anything that would revolutionize silencer designs. While there are many distinct challenges involved the general physics is well known. The heat and fouling involved also limits both usable materials and the design. Yeah, it's all about volume. Projectile noise can be...

Yeah, SilencerCo has been sending out emails about the HPA. I like the kicker that states you'll get a refund for any tax stamps that you've paid for since the bill was introduced in October 2015.

Re: Rules for making a 12ga silencer

By the way, I don't see it mentioned above, but since you are self admittedly brand new to this. All technical reasons aside, DO NOT make a suppressor or suppressor parts until you have completed a Form 1 and have had it approved by the ATF.

Re: Rules for making a 12ga silencer

I don't know the answer to your question, but that drawing baffles me. Assuming the measurements shown are supposed to be in inches, they recommended: - a .375" ID pipe for a .452" projectile - a .25" ID pipe for a .357" projectile - a .25" ID pipe for a .356" projectile - a .25" ID pipe for a .311"...
