Re: My 4 year battle with AAC to fix a defective suppressor...

I've never had a desire to own an aac can because they just didn't seem good. Arent they the same company someone made a thread about a few years back that had horrible baffle erosion after not much use? Then aac posted and said that's normal? I've heard far more bad things about them than good... A...

So i efiled a form 1 can on a trust on 6/30/16 and still nothing. It's this normal? Going by nfa tracker it looks like the majority of them are going through in 180 days.

Re: Does a SilencerCo Hybrid for $400.59 with a $200 SilencerCo store credit sound legit?

That's pretty lame they wouldn't honor it. They are a decent sized company. I'm sure they could have bit any loss to look like a stellar company. I have an 07/02 friend that owns a gun shop selling suppressors. We went to SHOT one year and it blew my mind when he started showing me the dealer pricin...

I know, worth is up to each person but i noticed that silencerco is still doing the upgrades. I have the original specter with the SWR branding on it still and was wondering if the upgraded baffle stack was worth the $200. I know it makes it easier to disassemble for cleaning but is it any quieter a...

Re: Distance to first baffle

That's a lower pressure round isn't it? If that's the case you probably don't need a ton of space. I went with about 1/3 of the can in my rifle cans so roughly 2.5" give it take a tenth or two. Being lower pressure and a reflex i'm willing to bet you would be good with 1.5". But it's just an estimat...

Re: Ks vs Radials

There is certainly a difference, you're right. We need a better name for the "radial" baffle. It's really not radial at all. They used to be called frusto cones, but they're not frustoconical, and normal 60° cones are in fact frustoconical, so that's no good either. then i say we call them "roundy ...

Re: Ks vs Radials

"Radials" (I just call them cones because they're basically cone-shaped and I don't see anything radial about them) are indeed easier to make than K's, especially with a CNC lathe. It's not an enormous difference, but it's significant enough. All things being equal, IMHO a good K baffle will usuall...

Hey Guys, Sorry if this has come up, but what's the real life expectancy of a modern suppressor like the tirant or octane?

Re: octane 45 abnormal wear

hmm :/ kind of a shame to even have to deal with that on an ~$800 can. I tend to hold SilencerCo in very high regard (more so the SWR part). Im sure they will make right, but im curious if its just a mfg defect or how all those pieces are made.
