Re: Saw the mdel for the new Presidential lemo

The 'paint scheme' is a camouflage wrap, as used by all the car manufacturers while testing their new models. It hides design details from prying eyes. Rest assured The Beast will be solid black when delivered.

Re: 300 BLK suppressor cleaning?

Most people find that a can that's a little dirty is quieter than a squeaky clean can. Get an accurate weight of the can brand new, then you can weigh it periodically throughout its life to see how dirty it really is. I started out being anal about taking mine apart and cleaning it often. Now I spen...

Re: “Light” B cell 9mm suppressor - tell me your thoughts

Way too many baffles. You aren't giving the gases any room to expand and cool. Just my 2 cents.

Here is a link that takes care of your 17-4 heat treat of silencer parts with quality work at a reasonable price:

I just had two baffles done, and the quality is outstanding and the turn around time was very quick. Highly recommend.

Re: Experience with very long "Reflex chambers" on AR (223) cans

Most would recommend the first and possibly second baffles be made of 17-4 stainless for strength, durability and erosion resistance.

After a lot of fooling around with the scope to get the rifle sighted in I finally got down to business with the good reloads. https://imag...

Glad to see the sweat of Rusty's brow making a difference here also. He's an awesome gentleman, and has made some really beneficial findings and best of all, shared them. The DHC has made it much easier for the average Joe to produce a great sounding baffle. I know it has served me well.

17-4 ph is what you want to buy - it is still freely machinable. Then heat treat to H900 - 900* for 1 hour, then air cooled to room temp.
