Integral ruger 22/45 monocore

The first suppressor I built was an integral 22 ruger with 9" tube. I decided to try an integral design and figured why not another Ruger. This started as a 5.5" bull barrel, I cut it down to 3.25" recrowned and threaded after profiling. The suppressor tube is 6"lg 304ss. The mono core is 7075 alumi...

Re: 458 Socom build

There really wasn't enough meat to pin and weld since the threads are 5/8-24 with the .458 bore; I just tack welded it like the Libety integrals.
I just anodize at home so it's type 2

458 Socom build

Just finished my semi integral 458 Socom build. The tube, mount, and first 2 baffles are 304ss; the end cap and rest of the baffles are anodized 7075 aluminum. Baffles are simple 60 degree cones, all but the first two are clipped. It's a 9.5" suppressor attached to an 8" Tromix stainless barrel to k...

Re: Booster-less micro cans vs slide weight

It's not as quiet as the full length can but it still very quiet. I shoot it wet with a 1/4" this wipe

It wasn't supposed to be as quiet as the full size, the adantage of the small size is it fits in the nightstand drawer with the auppressor attached

I built an all aluminum 4" long auppressor for my 40 cal Glock. It's roughly 4oz and cycles perfect on the stock pistol.

Re: Completed form 1 5.56 NATO build

Go buy a 60 degree countersink to thin out the inside of your baffles. It will help with weight and sound. Also thin out the skirt thickness on the baffle for less weight and more internal volume

Re: Want to build a 2" OD 5" length form 1 for an AK

It works surprisingly well. There are several commercial suppressors rated for 7.5". I used a muzzle brake as ...

Re: Home defense set up

It's hard to go wrong with a Glock. The lower one is what I keep near the bed with a form 1 micro wiped suppressor. It's a 40cal G22. A full length suppressor is long for most drawers or rapid open safes. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v239/bjgunner/5B743F91-8774-4B12-9A7B-EB928E7A81ED-705-000000...

Re: Personal Experiences on your 9mm AR SBR

I built one back when only colt and RRA made parts for them. Mine is set up as an integral SBR at 12" overall suppressed barrel length. The 9mm AR is loud in general due to ejection port noise of the blowback action and light bolt. I ended up making an extra heavy buffer out of stainless and the tun...

I bought mine for under $300 new before I was making my own suppressors so for what I paid and how it sounds I have no regrets. At the same time I plan to but in a form 1 soon to...

I used 2" OD x 0.065" wall aluminum tubing on my shotgun suppressor. Everything was 6061 aluminum except for the 304SS mount. The low pressure and large more make it a challenge to get the gas to go where you want it. Mine is 12" long and works well. I ended up anodizing all the baffles. http://img....

Re: Micro 223 Suppressor

I finally got to try this one out today (we had our first child 4 weeks ago so time is scarce). I shot it on my 7.5" upper which is the loudest thing I have. It was slightly louder on it than my longer suppressor but was actually comfortable to shoot without hearing protection.

The barrel on the Savage is small in OD, I think its 5/8" which would just fit through your lathes through bore.
