Re: Something like the Huntertownarms Kesteral 556 but OK for .204

Also, like you found out, do NOT shoot rimfire ammo through a sealed centerfire can...centerfire ammo burns way cleaner than rimfire ammo and that's the reason most rimfire cans can be taken apart...you'll quickly ruin a sealed centerfire can with filthy (and ALL of it's filthy) rimfire ammo.

Re: Something like the Huntertownarms Kesteral 556 but OK for .204

When I first got into the can "business" last year, Huntertown was pushed on me...I studied before I laid the money down, and suffice to say all but one of my cans are Silencerco (The one that's not is a Tactical Solutions .22 can). I have recent experience with SiCo customer service and it was noth...

Rimfire Roundup

Just plain addictive. Top rifle is 10/22 with Nikon 4x rimfire scope and Sparrow. Middle is M&P 22c with Warlock II. Bottom is 5" SBR 15-22 with Spectre II. Spent the morning making empty brass at a target 40 yards out. Good luck trying to get me to do anything else today, I told the wife! http://i1...

Re: Getting checked for legal silencer and stamp

Any range owner/officer or LEO that wants to see my paperwork gets to see it. I ain't looking to play games or get a hassle - I show if asked. Thing is, I haven't been asked yet, probably because the ranges I frequent see cans and SBR's more and more often - and they know me. After shooting one day,...

Re: Register the suppressor to a corporation??

Sounds complicated...and what are you going to do with all those NFA items if your LLC/Corp folds and no longer exists?

Go the Trust route - it's easier and, as stated above, is 100% private.

Re: Actual tax stamp in the mail??

I have four eForm 1's, all with "virtual" stamps.

I'd rather have those approved in 30-40 days vs. mailing the forms and waiting 3-4 months for a "real" stamp.

I don't have the 762, but I have the Saker 556. When I screwed mine on for the first outing I was dead center but 2 inches low at 100yds.

Individual examiner times

Ever noticed how long it takes your stamped form to get back to the gun shop after approval? The ATF has 30 days to get it back to your dealer, and I suspect some examiners, for whatever reason, sit on the forms. Example: I have had 4 of 6 Form 4's approved so far. From approved to arrival by examin...

Re: Pilot 2 vs Spectre 2 vs warlock 2

I have the Spectre II and the Warlock - they're both neck-and-neck on which one is quieter...in other words, no distinguishable FRP and both are quiet! The Pilot ain't no chump so I'd say between the three get the one you like the best. Hell, for that matter my TacSOl Cascade is pretty sweet, too......

Is it any wonder these guys sell ALOT of cans! I bought a Warlock from a local dealer 3 months ago. I bought it despite the fact the thing would not thread onto either one of my rifles; the threads looked messed up.

I stopped using NFA tracker, because alot of the users are idiots who don't know how to fill in the boxes...they'll say the check was cashed on 2/23/14 and their form went pending 3/16/15... The pending date is set back to the date your check was cashed, so the dates should be the same! Anyway, my l...
