Re: Does anyone have ideas for radical designs?

I have often wondered if an evacuator like device (think big thing in middle of large tank cannon barrels) could help in relieving back pressure increases...... perhaps in the form of a gas block with a expansion chamber secondary to the main gas entry point???? (think regular gas block/gas port, wi...

Re: Building Suppressor for 18" .338LM

18" .338 LM barrel seems like a waste of perfectly good powder and bullets to me..... you really do lose a lot with that barrel length. 22" would nearly offset weight wise, with what you could do with materials and improve velocity and range (obviously) a good deal. 18" you have comparable unburned ...

Re: saker muzzle brake

Brakes will always reduce erosion to baffles... its why almost all my rifles have brakes for suppressed use. My rifle cans all have barely any noticeable wear even after a few K rounds in each. .. the brake baffles have some minor wear themselves though on the high count rifles, mainly on the inner ...

Re: A machinists comment on stellite....

Stellite was / is used in some. 50 barrels, valves and various applications that resist high temps & erosion. Hastoloys & inconel are great materials as well but not always the best choice in every condition. It comes down to design intent & conditions. Early M60 barrels had stellite liners. Keep i...

Re: m110 suppressor on bolt action?

Any decent smith / machinist can do it. Would require custom contouring. If the barrel is amply thick, that is all you will need. If thinner where the locking lugs go, would need a custom adapter. It's doable, but would likely run a few hundred $$$. I haven't seen any readily available technical dr...

Re: Silencer built with hand tools?

Khyber pass AK has become the new term for frankenAKs ad well as an AKM with AK74 furniture.

Its used jokingly and doent mean anything insulting frankly it is quite awe inspiring the fact they can build a functioning AK from scrap metal with simple hand tools that actually look like real AKs.

Re: 9mm barrel length - opinions sought

6-7" shouldn't go supersonic for just about every 147 grain loading. when you hit 8+ is when you have the possibility in some of the 147 loadings that are doing 1050 from a 5" barrel. Most 9mm luger test velocity data is based on 4.5-5.25" long barrels. There is not much of a velocity gain after 6" ...

eForms allows up to 10 uploads of no more than 3 MB each, and it allows splitting your trust into multiple documents. So, that's definitely one option. However, you should be able to get your trust shrunk to under the 3 MB mark. Reducing resolution is one way to do it; reducing color depth is anoth...
