Re: 300 Blackout Integral Comparisons

thanks I was curious about that. I have a sako 85 classic in 30-06 that I think would be pretty cool to have done. [/quote] We build an awesome bolt action integral. You can pick your initial barrel length then just add 8" for the baffles. We can use anything from a Green Mountain up to Krieger or B...

Re: 1.5" vs 1.375" OD 9mm

We use 1.375 and 1.5 for our integral 9mm cans on AR's, Scorpions, and MPX's. Sometimes the handguard size the customer wants to use negates us using the 1.375 suppressor. The 1.5 suppressors give a more pleasant tone but Db wise both are the same. We get 2 extra k baffles in the smaller tube which ...

Re: Curtis Tactical Ruger 77/44 integrally suppressed

Looks great Curtis, I see that these do not screw together like your other designs. is this because of room inside the front module?

Re: Integral 45ACP 450Bushmaster silencer by CurtisTactical

I bet that suppressor sounds great on the 45 acp, volume never hurts. Nice write up with good photos. You do nice work too, that 45acp barrel looks as good as anything that comes out of my shop.

Re: thread pitch

We thread all of our baffles together to make the core of our suppressors, every thread on ours utilizes 32tpi, this allows to run our wall thickness lower to keep the weight down.

Re: 5.56mm can for rimfires?

The biggest problem you run into with using the 556 suppressor on rimfires is that you end up with a lot larger and heavier can than needed. The closest I have come to being that versatile is our Curtis Tactical ST9CFP, it is a 9mm suppressor with a booster that unscrews from the rear cap leaving a ...

Re: Curtis Tactical integrally suppressed CZ Scorpion

I saw the photos. Looks great. I'll be honest, you should port the barrel, even with subs to make full use of that area, unless you're trying to use it as a reflex can. From my experience, making six 9/64" ports in the barrel 2-1/2 inches from the chamber will retain plenty of velocity to still all...

Re: Mammoth Sniper Challenge Integrally suppressed 300blk prize rifle.

As always, nice work, Joe. Were the ports tuned for factory HV or SS ammo? How much difference did adding the ports make? Not only to sound reduction, but also to velocity? The ports are just there to bleed off gas more efficiently then a reflex which is usually only about 20-30 percent efficient. ...
