Re: Can a .30 Cal Suppressor be used on a Rimfire?

I would suppose it could, but, a rimfire (22lr) is going to be very dirty, alot of lead residue, and you can't "disassemble" most center fire cans to clean it.
Also, because of the size of the bore, you may not get much suppression with a 30 cal can on 22lr.

Re: Launched my SilencerCo Omega300 - Repair?

Call Silencerco, tell them the problem, they will send you a return label, send the can to them, in about 3 weeks you will receive a good as new, repaired, suppressor.
That's what you do, at least with Silencerco.

Re: Saker 7.62 ASR or Specwar 7.62?

Just as an aside, Even though Silencerco doesn't sell the specwar anymore, they do still support it. About 3 weeks ago, I pulled a bonehead and didn't get my specwar tightened on my mount. Yep, first shot, 25 yards down the range. It had several baffle strikes and a extra big hole in the endcap.I se...

Re: Remove rifle from sbr status

I did just that with an SBS I decided I didn't want to shorten.
I sent a letter to the NFA branch of ATF with a with a copy of the form 1, asking for it to be removed from the registry as I decided not the shorten it.
I got a reply in 2 weeeks saying it had been removed.

Re: My 4 year battle with AAC to fix a defective suppressor...

I have 5 Silencerco cans.

They repaird and returned them within 2 weeks, everytime.

This is why I will not buy a suppressor from anyone but Silencerco.

Re: Suppressor dilemma

I, too, bought a SW 762 as my first suppressor.
It was everything I wanted , at the time.

Since then, I have purchased 2 hybrids, 2 omegas, and s SW 556.

The one that I like best now, is the omega.
It is every bit as good as the SW 762, only shorter and lighter.

You won't go wrong with the omega.

Re: I got a NFA application refund check today.......

Talked to Scott Robertson at ATF regarding this refund.
He says it was for a form 4 filed for me and that the "application was withdrawn" but had no other information.
So, now I'm pissed and am trying to contact the vendor I bought it from to get their side of the story.

Yes, you should fine. The ATF has said that anything post marked 7/12 or before, will be examined under the old rules, even if it didn'the get delivered until after the 13th.
That's what they have written. We'll see if that's what happens.

Cleaning a Specwar 762........

I have been shooting my Specwar 762 quite a bit lately on my 300blk rifles and I have noticed that it is getting pretty dirty.
Is there any need to clean it and if so, how is the best way to do that?

I can run my finger around the inside of the mount and it comes away very dirty.

Thanks.
