Re: Building our first .223 suppressor

"...seems to be looking at the physics of it all. i wonder how many people here actually understand the physics in a silencer, or do they draw and cut? the latter method is likely to have high probability of failure."

Terrific! I'll give you a call as soon as I shake this flu, or whatever I picked up out there, and my brains are back in gear.

Thanks Gunny, It was really great meeting you too! And that little "challenge" you proposed to my partner has driven him crazy ever since! :lol: I think you're his new hero.

Re: Would this be a suppressor part?

Faux suppressors are sold and mounted all of the time. In fact, the Walther P22 Used to come with one in the case - it might still, I don't know.

Re: Interesting .22LR Micro Can build...

I had abandoned using wipes long ago but, they seem to be coming back into fashion again.

Re: Question on lathe purchase - input requested

+12... Stay away from HF for complicated machinery. Great for C-clamps, Nitrile gloves, etc, but, with machines that rely on several parts interacting with each other in four axes, you'll find yourself doing more corrective work than anything else - to the machine, and to your parts. I bought my 10x...
