Re: Any Private Person Actually Got an Obsidian 45 Yet?

I've run my Obsidian on an HK45CT and Glock 17 and it's been great so far. Haven't tried it on my 300blk yet so I can't comment on that, but on the pistols, using subsonic in the Glock, it was surprisingly quiet. It doesn't feel heavy enough to throw off the balance, even in the long configuration. ...

Re: best 308 semi auto hunting rifle for my Omega can

I stumbled across an M&P10 at a price I couldn't pass up, and couldn't be happier with it. Mine was very basic so I swapped out the handguard and trigger, and put a qd break for my omega. I think now they come with Magpul furniture though. It's still very light for the platform. If you want an accur...

Re: Obama's last anti-gun push, UN Arms Trade Treaty

I remember the uproar about this and the UN coming to take everyone's guns. If you take the time to read it it has no authority to influence laws within the US. I know we need to be vigilant to make sure we keep the rights we have but I'm getting tired of fear mongering that has been driving the gun...

Yup.. What he said. Unless you use it on a rimfire or a rifle host, you'll probably not need the spacer. If when you rack the slide the chamber drops down out of the way, you need the spring.

Re: Form 3 question

Congratulations on joining the club. The only advice I can give is to have patience. I recently purchased 2 cans about a month apart and had the second one approved 2 months before the first one. There are average times, then your outliers, especially with the rush earlier this year.

Re: 80% silencers? Yep, it finally happened! (we have them but under the term "solvent trap" - at least they are honest!

Do you have the Texas law that states suppressors are illegal? I'm a little confused that there's a law saying they're illegal but they're legal to hunt with.

Re: How to break the bond of 242 blue Loctite??

Methylene chloride, aka dichloromethane, is commonly used to weld acrylic materials together. Weld-On 3 is a common brand if you can find it. Not sure it will work but that would be your best bet unless you know someone that works in a lab.

Re: SilencerCo Omega Blows Off Gun and Ruins Mule Deer Hunt!

I totally empathize and agree that sucks, but you know s--t happens. I have an omega and have shot hundreds of 5.56, 300blk, and .308 with the qd and not a single problem. Every time you blow a tire or the fridge dies and ruins your food do you want to go sue someone? If someone got injured I might ...

Re: Suppressors in Colorado

In section 5 where it says having a license or permit is a defense against prosecution. As long as you have an approved form 1 before you start you'll be good.

Re: Buying a Hybrid....

Unless I'm misunderstanding.. Form 4 transfers still require the fingerprints and photo. By not having to do the dealer to dealer transfer (Form 3) you are saving several months but all requirements are still the same.

Re: Rugged Obsidian 45 Availability

That makes sense.. I didn't realize they were anodizing AND cerakoting. Seems like a bad way to save a few pennies based on the feedback so far. Personally if I had the choice on mine I'd take a uniform coating, but it is by no means a deal breaker. It'll be interesting to see how they look after 10...

Re: Rugged Obsidian 45 Availability

Does anyone know what the benefit of changing this for the production models would be? My thinking is that they could decrease production time by using a uniform coating and the cost couldn't be much different, but I'm not sure what the pros would be for doing this.

I've had mine since August. Shot .308 out of a bolt and AR, 5.56, 300blk super & sub. Shot mostly 300blk and 5.56 with probably 1000rds total so far. Right now I have a 30 end cap and direct thread on a 8" 300blk.. Very short, light & quiet. For 308 I run a break with the ASR and the anchor break. A...
