Nope, perfectly machined. Fit and finish are perfect. I was so pleased that I ordered a Ghost a week after my Mask came in. mt experience, as well. only complaint i have is that i keep unscrewing the body from the mask when i unmount it from a host. maybe i havent smashed down hard enough on it wit...

Re: New .22 Pistol Hosts?

I am going to have a bull barrel Ruger mkII cut, threaded and sight setback. Ive got a couple of the Beretta 71s and the open top slide makes it annoying to shoot because of blowback and crap in your face, suppressed or not suppressed. I still have a first run Walther P22 that runs great, actually.

Re: Gemtech G5-22

ive always wanted to shoot and hear a g5-22. not many people have them. but i was always intrigued by a larger volume 22lr can. i always thought it would be ideal dedicated can for my 4.5" AR i built last year.

I may try and find one again too....

pistol can length Q

when you form 1 a pistol can, do you measure from the back of the body of the silencer to the front cap or do you include the booster length as well?

can i err on the side of caution and list it as being shorter on the form 1 by half an inch?

Yes I know it's a silencerco. My question was whether he got it from a can he already owned or if he purchased a seperate, complete booster from some place.

Where did you get the booster setup? Was it one you had or you got it seperately? I have been looking for a setup with the end cap and spring for a while but i cant find one anywhere.

Now, i know you have to engrave your name (or trust name), city and state on the suppressor you create.

By far my most anticipated can, and im 10-12 stamps deep at this point and several cans/SBRs into stamp collecting. Found one in black for under $1100. i...

Re: Beretta 71 thread pitch?

they are fun little guns, i have two of them, but the blowback is pretty horrendous with the open top slide design of the Beretta.

Do yourself a favor and use the knurled adapter that is online, not the silencerco branded one. i used both and the knurled one is significantly better quality.

Re: What LocTite do you use for thread on cans and brakes?

i would not use any loc-tite on your Direct thread cans. i think that is asking for trouble. if you have the proper threading and shoulder on your barrel, a good suppressor should be able to be locked down, by hand tightening only, and seldom come loose, though its a good idea to check it throughout...

Re: .22 LR AR15 barrel - for shooting subsonic w/ bulk pack

Not an AR platform, but Clint made me my .22 SBR barrel and the thing shoots lights out. I pretty much shoot CCI standard velocity exclusively. But Ive also tried other bulk ammo(Remington I think) and all of it has stayed subsonic. Good luck http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee62/IBSlingin/Guns/I...

What altitude or which city are you at?
Altitude has absolutely no bearing on how you calculate the speed of sound. Its only depends on temperature.
