Re: 73k fps gun shot

My thought is that with most higher calibers a blast chamber would make the suppressor last longer as it provides a larger space for that initial pressure blast to be absorbed into.

73k fps gun shot

I have no idea how many of you have seen this video but it definitely explains why a blast chamber is needed and does a very good job of showing what the gasses do after they exit the barrel.

Re: Integral Mk III plans

What I would do is take the last K baffle and reduce the OD of the skirt to let it sit inside your end cap. You're still keeping it quiet and all the baffles intact, but you're killing wasted space and length. JMHO, of course... Byrdman Great idea thanks for the input, that brings the overall lengt...

Re: Integral Mk III plans

Do what is pictured in the 2nd photo, and you'll have a winner. Fair enough, that is what I will plan for then. I still have two unanswered questions though... Currently the wall thickness of the 7075 throughout is .05" and the wall thickness of the 316 tube is .04" are these correct for a 22 or ca...

Re: Integral Mk III plans

My goal with my mk 3 is to not just make it stupid quiet but to make it so all that is heard is the firing pin drop followed by the gun cycling. I personally would prefer to not have an expendable part in my can so if you are 90%+ confident I can do that or at least come close to it without wipes th...

Re: Integral Mk III plans

Thanks everyone for the input, I have decided to go with Ks both because they will be easier to make and because the consensus is they will be the quietest. I moved the wipe into the end cap and realized that with doing this I not only would be able to add a second wipe but also shave a 1/2" off the...

Re: Integral Mk III plans

LOL Historian as funny as it would look I am not trying to make a 3 foot long hand gun. Besides, the limit for this from the receiver to the end of the suppressor is 10" and the shorter I can make it with the action being louder than the pop the better. Thanks everyone for the input about moving the...

Integral Mk III plans

Within a few months I should be able to start working on an integral build for my Ruger Mk III and have a few questions. First, for the people here who have built .22 suppressors before what bore diameter did you use? Second, I was planning on just making K's for this build but I had a lot of extra ...

Re: QD vs. Thread-on for 5.56mm suppressor

I think the question you have to ask is, why would you ever take a suppressor off an AR platform once it is mounted? Removing it kinda defeats the purpose of having one and unlike with a handgun where you may have to remove it to re-holster the gun there is no reason other than long term storage in ...

Re: Designing first build... looking for critiques V2

I am more likely to never install the end cap in the first place then forget to take it off lol... taking it out of the design. Still need to re-space the baffles and move the blast baffle back a bit to 1.5+" What else can I do to make it better? On the topic of the Px4, the friend of mine who said ...

Re: Designing first build... looking for critiques V2

Blake, thank you very much, that is exactly what I was looking for in an answer. And that data also gives me plenty of reason to keep the cap on the exit end of the suppressor. It would take less time to remove a cap then to remove any water that may or may not have gotten inside a can while I am mo...

Re: Designing first build... looking for critiques V2

Please enlighten me as to why it would be a bad idea to make this can wet and what about this can would make it dangerous.

Re: Designing first build... looking for critiques V2

Those threads are for end caps that would be installed so that it can be stored wet into my range bag or backpack for transportation so I don't get the rest of my gear wet.

Re: Designing first build... looking for critiques

Revisions have been made, it is now 1.75"OD and 10.75" in length and all 316SS. The bullet clearance has also been moved to .350 at the blast baffle, .375 for next 9 baffles, and .4 for the last baffle and the end cap. http://halfsquelch.com/Nyx.jpg Let me know if there is anything else that can be ...

Re: Designing first build... looking for critiques

Thanks for the input I will make changes and post a new design. As far as the end covers they are there not for storing it for long periods of time but so I can leave it in my range bag while it is not in use without running the risk of getting the rest of my stuff wet. All water would be removed at...

Designing first build... looking for critiques V2.1

Hello silencer smithers I have been lurking around these forums for over a year and now that I am working on my first design I figure it is time to post. I am currently building a .308 bolt action rifle for hunting when I get to Alaska and intend on building a suppressor for it. Yes I know about the...
