Re: New! Octane Front Cap Wrench

PLA polymer, which is robust enough for this application. I've shipped 103 of these without problems. I received mine this morning, and have tested it. It works GREAT. When you compare the pattern on this wrench to the pattern of the piston, you'll see that Chase has lengthened the "teeth", and pos...

Re: Saker 7.62 ASR or Specwar 7.62?

I had convinced myself my next buy would be a Saker 7.62 ASR to dedicate to an 18" 6.5 Grendal that has been sharing an old style Saker 7.62 with it's 12.5" 6.5 Grendel little brother. Everything is ASR now. Then walked into local shop and they are closing out the Specwar 7.62 for $550 so I could s...

Re: Does anyone know the Silencerco Omega 9k/Octane tube thread pattern?

I don't know it and don't have one here to measure, but just use a thread pitch gauge and then measure the ID of the thread minor diameter and add the double depth of the pitch. 28 pitch is .046" double depth. Am I misreading the instructions, or is the math wrong? I would think 28 * 2 would be 0.0...

Re: Dead Air Wolf-9SD Body Wrench design

I recently designed a Dead Air Wolf-9SD body wrench. This design engages the recesses on both the serial-numbered rear and the front sections, so now I can apply more torque to my Wolf-9SD suppressor from the front than just by hand. My previous wrench designs for Omega 9K/45K/Octane and Wolf-9SD m...

Re: Omega 9K/45K/Octane Mount Wrench (And for Dead Air Wolf 9SD too!)

The Problem: The Solution: I 3D modeled and printed a wrench that interfaces with the Octane/Omega 9K direct thread/piston mounts. Silencerco does not make a wrench for these. My wrench is a high-strength PLA polymer material that will break if way too much torque is applied, but if you torque it o...

Otherwise, smash the silencer with a sledgehammer and toss it in a deep lake. Done. Even the BATFE won't dig you up to shoot you. No, they wouldn't dig you up. Granted, IANAL, but they might harass the executor to prove that the NFA items were properly disposed of. So, if ATF has proof, via Form 1 ...

Not sure how they compare in terms of FRP, but you might want to consider something like an Octane 45 or the Rugged Obsidian or Dead Air Ghost. I believe (ready to be corrected if I'm wrong) that all of these have stainless steel baffles. This makes it much easier to clean than the TiRant, which has...

You still had to do a NCIC check when you did the 4473. Nothing has changed. Previously, a NICS check was performed on the individual who picked up the NFA item from the dealer (after the Form 4 was approved). New regs require fingerprints and photographs for ALL "responsible persons" in the trust/...
