Re: New suppressor from Ruger....Ruger?

Looks good, interesting design. Knowing this place, there's going to be some incoming hate from garage silencer designers who know better than Ruger but for whatever reason have never turned their genius into a lucrative empire.

Re: Form 1 Modulars ie Silencerco Micro Osprey

Good afternoon all, I recently came across a video for the micro osprey rim fire can from Silencerco. Has anyone done a Form one design that is modular and gotten it approved? I understand the Salvo and a few items from Griffen Arms have been approved as modular designs. Would an individual be able...

Re: New feature on cone, question with pics

Laminar flow of chaotic & unpredictable gasses from the combustion of gun powder leaving a smaller aperture (the bore) and entering a larger space filled with convolutions is a total pipe dream. Not a knock on your design, could be good, just on the theory of a laminar flow being something that can ...

Me too. At the risk of looking like a jackhole for not reading the whole thread, were/are these the older suppository shaped cans or the current gen version?

Re: Help me choose an integrally suppressed 10/22?

I've asked this before but maybe I'll get new opinions this time. What are pros/cons of keeping bulk pack ammo subsonic via a very short (4.5") barrel vs using ports that bleed to an expansion chamber on a barrel that's longer than 4.5"?

Yea, this is a novice threading question....

I want to form 1 an integral suppressor for a 10/22 that would be similar to a Mist-22 in the sense that I want it to simply be the same OD & look of a bull barrel. Not planning to copy the baffle design so this has nothing to do with IP. My questions are... 1) How would one determine which thread s...

Re: Sparrow vs Element 2

I have a Sparrow SS and an Element 2. The sparrow is easier to takedown but even though my element 2 came with the removal tool I've been able to knock them out just by giving it a genuine tap on the work bench. I like both, a lot. I will admit though, when it comes time to show a new guy a silenced...

Re: Future proofing your cans

Other than buying extra mounts I can think of only a few options, all potentially painful. 1) screw your rules and just buy direct thread cans. 2) you/heirs pay out the azz to a shop to recreate a mount 30+ years later. 3) you learn to machine it yourself and pass on knowledge to your heirs (good lu...

Trust me, I am aware of SWR and the SilencerCo history. Maybe not. SWR was initially founded by Joe Gaddini.

Re: Check out the various documents that Sig & BATFE have filed in their litigation over the MPX brake.

Here's a funny little gem buried in Sig's latest motion for summary judgement (emphasis added by me). Testing conducted by Sig Sauer on the muzzle brakes shown in the ATF Letter (AR 821) demonstrates that assembly of an outer tube on virtually any muzzle brake creates a silencer. EL Dec. ¶ 34.

Re: Check out the various documents that Sig & BATFE have filed in their litigation over the MPX brake.

Pretty clearly they - presumably both "they" - are dredging up a tremendous amount of related information from a variety of other products. I wonder who is submitting what, and for what reason. If I had to theorize, I would guess that Sig is bringing up other firearms with brakes on them... as well...
