Re: Form 1 on a trust - who can make the NFA item question

I'm not an attorney, but have an NFA trust for my F1 suppressor. The trust document should contain language that authorizes the grantor and/or trustee(s) to acquire assets, or specifically NFA items, which may include certain conditions. That language would also apply to the authorization for "maki...

Re: Rules of thumb for suppressor design

i am thinking a hot forge press, pressing very hot slugs into a hunk of steel mold, then machine the bore, and maybe machine the lip that has to stack. has to be faster and easier than molten metal into a multi-piece mold? w/o the right gear doing molten SS will likely leave lots of not so desired i...

Re: Rules of thumb for suppressor design

You can bet your ass Ruger is die casting those baffles. Possibly 3 miles from my house at one of their larger subcontractors actually. yeah, but those castings have a machining process on them? how do they stack and snap together so well? is the casting that precise. may be so, but i thought some ...

Re: Rules of thumb for suppressor design

3D printing is cool, but to get good pieces with the accuracy needed it has to be done in a argon chamber. so although 3D printing has come to home table it still has limitations. so perhaps its still a 3D print and then finish on CNC or manual lathe. Not for lost wax? Metal 3D printers do of cours...

Re: Do Can Designs Affect Accuracy?

As requested straight from this engineering text which I have had for many years. I believe I acquired this particular book in 2003. it becomes easier to understand if they would describe it a tad better, either by using sum of vectors, or simply by using sum of values via 4 quadrants where each qu...

Re: Cerakote

Black DOES radiate more heat than white. White reflects energy. But color here is mainly for aesthetics and camo preference. OP asked if Cerakote or bead finish was better. He shouldn't have specified "black" b/c that only confused the issue. Good that you brought color's role upon the ThermoDynami...

there is a reason why heatsinks are black. when comparing same product the black color will dissipate more heat than the white color.

Re: Cerakote

increase in FPS is attributable to a hot barrel AND simply by screwing on a can, which affects POI.

Cerakote on the internals is is pointless. It's a great finish for the outside, but will not survive on the internals. I did my 10/22 integral monocore in Cerakote and even just rimfire quickly stripped it inside the chambers.

Re: Do Can Designs Affect Accuracy?

fps = feet per second, which is a measure of speed. This is important because the more variability in speed there is for a given platform, the more variation in precision it will experiment. did you see my fps definition from the other thread, which i purposely called it focal point, or something l...

Re: Do Can Designs Affect Accuracy?

a precise scale would be a gunpowder scale, it can measure to a tenth of a grain. a bathroom scale might be just as accurate, it will tell you your weight correctly, but only to the nearest pound, so its not as precise. a group centered on the bullseye is accurate, but a smaller group is accurate a...

Re: 308 design critique

why not just make the endcap slightly thinner than the barrel threads? then the cap will have no interference with the blast until the bullet is well out of the way. the expanding gas has lots of weird properties. its expanding (and in many cases still burning) while at the same time has vector ine...

Re: 308 design critique

why didnt you thread the rear cap all the way through with the threads that attach to the barrel? doing so would cut some weight. i think for some symmetry its best to have a smooth bore transition (if the barrel threading is shorter than cap thickness). i do prefer to have end of muzzle faced flus...

Re: Rules of thumb for suppressor design

You'll find that so far, the only rule of thumb that's universally agreed upon is that the bore hole should be of a larger diameter than the largest caliber intended to pass through the suppressor. Also, note that I am not joking. .... and that 0.001" bigger than bullet size is technically sufficie...
