Re: Why are Octane/Osprey pistons slotted?

The slots were designed for the osprey indexing ring/spring retainer. It's the part that holds the piston in place & allows you to time it due to the eccentric shape. When they started making octanes they decided that it would be more convenient for customers to be able to interchange Pistons with t...

Re: Need Help Picking 30cal can for around $600

I have an aac 762-sdn-6 and its been a good can. I would imagine then that the new aac 762 would be fine. I'm also pretty sure most people like the yhm phantoms but I have no personal experience. I personally would go for a qd can. I have head a lot of good from the YHM Phantom M2 so and also for t...

Re: Another newbie here, help me decide

Find another dealer. any dealer that won't accept transfers is not to be trusted That's not exactly true. Many dealers are just considering their risk/reward situation. And NFA transfers directly compete with their own NFA inventories too. But I agree, it sucks that a lot of Class 3 dealers nowaday...

Re: Where is SilencerCo?

First off, I own a Saker 7.62 and an Octane 45 both of which I very much like. The last few days however, I have looked at several killer new designs. The first is the GRIFFIN ARMAMENT REVOLUTION 9/45. This thing is absolutely sick! http://www.griffinarmament.com/Revolution-45-Silencer-p/garev45.ht...

Re: Are .22 shot shells OK to use with a silencer?

I can't recommend doing it, unless for some reason you're angry at your can and want to punish it severely. ...although now that you have mentioned it, I may give it a try. We've got a Sparrow that tamed down half a dozen or so rounds of 5.56, that little guy may be up to the challenge. I'm curious...
