You'll know if you need to re-do it when your brake screws off with your can.

Re: Why not more threaded barrel makers?

EVERYTHING can have a threaded barrel....it just a matter of how much time/money someone wants to invest in it. Yea, I guess you are right. Im not personally willing to make, what I would consider, a major modification to a slide just to get a threaded barrel to work. I would(and did) sell the gun ...

Re: Why not more threaded barrel makers?

One reason some guns arent done at all is the barrel wont fit into the slide. The S&W MP45 midsize is like this. I have read of a few guys getting it to work without opening up the opening in the slide, but most guys just give up.

Re: Powder speed for quietest 300 blackout?

Faster for sure. That holds true no matter what the round. Also going to single base vs. double base in theory is quieter due to it being a cooler burning powder(single base that is). There are guys loading TiteGroup with the 300BLK for bolt guns subs. I think 4g of Titegroup with a 150g FMJ so a re...

Re: NFA items and wills

As long as the NFA are locked somewhere to which only she has access then she is legally "in possession". You may want to check on the legality of storing firearms in a safe deposit box at a given institution. I've asked the SOT question before, I think, and I don't believe the SOT can "hold" items...

NFA items and wills

To preface this, I have looked in my local area for an attorney who was versed in NFA items, I couldnt find any, but maybe somebody can help me out(I live in St. Louis, MO). I have a few NFA items. They are all individually owned, not on a Trust. I have a will. I need to add my NFA items to my will....

Re: Where to find 1/2x28 and 5/8x24 stuff... to fix 51T?

I had to clean one of my mounts(on my AAC 9" 300BLK upper) threads because the can was getting stuck on the mount and was very hard to put on due to carbon build up. This was after at least 3000 suppressed 300BLK subsonics though. Im not worried about a tiny loss of accuracy though with a clean vs. ...

Re: Brakeout Fouling Issues

The threads on mine were so bad on my 9" AAC 300BLK upper that the can wouldnt thread off(it would go on just fine, but I could hardly get it off). I took a wire wheel on my dremel and made quick work of it.

Re: Doc Dater says ti better than steel for heat, and more

The leading edge of the turbine blades on the plane I fly are supposedly titanium(or more likely some kind of titanium alloy) coated for wear resistance. Dont know what the blades themselves are made of. We operate them above 900c(1650+F) during takeoff, I would say mid 800's C is where we operate t...

If you have complete Title1 lowers without uppers and extra Title2 uppers you are asking for problems. They won't come after you specifically for constructive intent, it would be used as icing on the cake of other charges. That said, if you know it is wrong why would you do it? I personally dont/di...

Best I have heard was a Thunderbeast. I think it was a 30BA on a GAP Crusader.

It was quieter than my SDN6 on my Rem 700 AAC-SD.

How many shims is it taking to properly align the brake? Like I said, I think I used 2 and had no issues like this. With only 1 washer I could see it being a potential issue.
