Re: H.R. 5717 bill that restricts guns

Can't say I agree with some of your specifics, but sure, things will only get more 'interesting' (worse) in the next couple of weeks. My guess on the shootings is that they will not be false flag operations. Rather they will be expressions of extreme frustration by some men who feel completely margi...

Re: Political /Refugee

Something I read today from James Lindsay was kind of interesting. He seemed to struggle in his essay to put an exact finger on his point, but that was in a way inherent in the exercise. Namely he was suggesting that we each take on the assignment of identifying where our line was, the line where we...

I've at times longed for California, especially Marin County. But then I quickly remember the politics, the gun rules (those stocks on carbines are HIDEOUS!) and it's a no-go. I could take my skills and move them, not much of an issue as it would only take a year or two to let people know I'm there ...

Re: Baffle Clip Advice requested

Fair enough. If adding baffles, modifying your current suppressor yourself or having a re-core done by someone competent isn't an option for you, then I'd go with symmetrical clips and rotating 90 degrees between each. I've found the 90 degree alternating orientation to be effective in 9mm cans anyw...

Re: Baffle Clip Advice requested

whiterussian1974's suggestions seem spot on. I'll add that 4 cones in a suppressor for a 9mm gun of some sort is not likely to result in a decibel reduction you will find very useful. Seems from what commercial suppressors do and what a lot of successful form 1 makers besides, between 6 and 10 cones...

Re: K-Baffles: 60° or shorter to fit more of them?

Buy some washers the same OD as your undrilled baffles, with the same diameter centre hole, or drill them out to the size you want for your baffle bore. Make a clamping fixture which can hold a stack of these washers securely in the drill press. Locate the clamping fixture such that the drill spins ...

About 6 years ago while playing with an old pistol I tried various damping devices around 7 ports in the 7.5" long barrel. Mesh wrap was okay, but quickly got filthy.

It's seemingly the cool thing to do, talking to criminals as though they deserved respect.

Re: Zero shift

If your baffles are removed for cleaning, or even a monocore baffle system, then replaced in a different rotational orientation relative to the barrel, POI shift is virtually guaranteed. Marking or otherwise maintaining identical baffle orientation is important for consistent POI, especially for sub...

Re: Lose of noise reduction with oversize suppressor hole

Funny you should ask. Just the other day I screwed a 1.5" x 10" suppressor with an 11.5mm bore, made for a 9mm carbine barrel, onto a break-action .22lr rifle with a 10" barrel and test fired it with CCI SV. The thing metered EXACTLY the same as the dedicated 1"x7" K baffle can I built for the .22lr...

Re: Centerfire bolt action, Integrally suppressed?

Integral can be a bit more forgiving in terms of integrity of the blast baffle, a significant reduction in pressure in that chamber owing to the large expansion volume behind it and around the barrel. This becomes even more the case with a ported barrel but that's not what you're doing here. Alignme...

The closest I've gone to the muzzle with ports is 1", on a relatively low powered .22" PCP which I've tuned to shoot 18gr pellets at about 500fps. With 3 x 1/8" ports from 3" to 1" before the muzzle, a 3/4" OD barrel shroud to contain that's expelled air, then a 3.5" aluminum monocore baffle thing i...

Re: Advice on integraly suppressed barrel

My experience is limited to 2 related efforts both in .22lr, one a 10" barrel ported with 8 x 1/8" holes between 5" and 7" from the chamber, the other a 6.5" barrel ported with 7 x 1/8" holes between 4.25" and 5.25". In each case I used K baffles ahead of the muzzle. In the shorter sample I also tes...

Re: Advice on integraly suppressed barrel

Steel wool will burn up fairly quickly. Perhaps you mean the mesh ribbon type scrubbing pad, such as 'chore boy' made of copper plated stainless steel? Or copper mesh? Any sort of plain steel wool is highly flammable. Not something I'd recommend for use in a suppressor even for .22lr. If you do use ...

Re: K-Baffles: 60° or shorter to fit more of them?

I'd not use the same can for .22lr and 9mm. Tried that, and performance with .22lr through the much larger baffle bore is very disappointing. But hey, your call. It'll certainly suppress the noise, just not nearly so nicely as a dedicated .22lr suppressor. I typically flip my K baffles 180 degrees, ...

Re: K-Baffles: 60° or shorter to fit more of them?

A single Dater hole 1/16" in the first K is fine, especially with a very short initial gap - 1/4" between muzzle and the first entry point in the baffle is about right for .22lr. With supers that might be a bit small, but the Dater hole relieves some pressure making it okay. With subs the combinatio...
