Re: Air swirling in pistol and rimfire cans

I was having a hard time picturing how it would be done on a monocore but if you changed the baffle design it wouldn't be that hard. I am really leaning towards the rimfire monocore I have seen repeated several times on here(Baffled, mageever, others). Obviously I want to add my own twists. But I w...

Re: Air swirling in pistol and rimfire cans

Like the "swirl vanes" that cause the air to rotate around the bore like a hurricane. Or "flame holders" in jet turbines. -<- They look like that to divert the incoming gas stream, and deter back-flow. Yes I was also thinking about some of the one way valves you have mentioned before. I am trying t...

Air swirling in pistol and rimfire cans

I am bored at work and as my mind often does I am thinking about suppressor design. Today's deviations have me thinking about how to swirl the air in a can not so much for cross jetting but more to just slow and cool the air. I think cross jetting is probably a more efficient way to lower the dB pro...

Re: Threaded Barrels That Can't Be Found

I haven't seen one for a Ruger LC9 or Sig P290 but then again I haven't aimed a Google search that way in a couple years. Do you think a threaded barrel for the LC9 would even be sought after? Heck idk if people would want them or if you could even get those pocket pistols to run right with a can o...

Re: O ring fit?

The oring would be like a piston ring really just to keep gas from leaking out of a monocore the link above let me plug in the numbers I had and see how they matched up with stock o-rings. I really need to start posting pictures with my questions.

O ring fit?

I am designing a suppressor while I wait for my form 1 to be returned and I was wondering how to select and cut for an o-ring. Obviously I understand the functional process for cutting a groove in material. My concerns were the depth and width of the groove. I just don't want it to be a pain in the ...

Re: Pistol can blast in face

.355ish through a .400 hole might be a little on the tight side. I am by no means an expert but if people usually have satisfactory results using.45 caliber cans on a 9mm it probably won't hurt to look at opening it up to say 13/32nds(.406) or if you could find a 10.5mm drill bit that would be a tou...

Re: Can I get a sanity check on my dedicated .458 SOCOM plans?

Re: Question from the gurus on lathes

I have a 9x19 from harbor freight it is identical to the G4000 from grizzly tools. It's ok I guess. The spindle bore is really what kills these machines for a lot of people.

Kicking around the idea of a F1 45 can

I was wondering what kind of booster/ Nielson device you guys that have been there done that used. I plan to suppress a Glock model 30(45acp), a cz scorpion (9mm)odd 18mmx1thread, eventually maybe a FN FNX-45, and I'm sure if I get a can my buddy will find a threaded barrel for his 9mm glock. I am h...

Re: 9mm/300blk silencer

It's pretty common practice to make the hole a minimum of .050"-.075" over the ACTUAL bullet diameter some guys go .100"+ over I encourage you to look at the completed builds page find a 9mm can and see if they shared what bore size they chose, if not you can ask them directly on their build thread ...

Re: 9mm/300blk silencer

You will want to use some kind of brake/flash hider mount because .300blk barrels are typically threaded 5/8-24 while 9mm barrels are often threaded 1/2-36 or 1/2-28.

Re: Silencer Design differences Supersonic vs Subsonic

Seems to me that the super sonic specific designs tend to have larger blast chambers and 2nd chambers. I assume this is for rapid pressure reduction. Bore size is also a consideration because a sub may not be as stable as a super. Barrel twist rate becomes a factor when you want to shoot subs and su...

Re: 6061 vs Full-Auto .308

As a previously certified A&P mechanic I didn't seen much 6061 aluminum in a high heat zone you will see stainless, inconel, Titanium and the like.

I was wondering what everyone thought of say 2024-T351 strictly as spacers not baffles and you would almost have to anodize it to slow corrosion.
