Re: octane 45 abnormal wear

Mine has the same wear. I think it's to be expected. A compressible O-ring is not going to be strong enough to keep the piston from contacting the wall there. I wouldn't worry about it really. Those O-rings are definitely a high wear item.

Octane UZI adaptor?

Does anyone know of someone other than SilencerHQ that makes these. SilencerHQ is out of stock and through emails with them, it appears that they aren't going to make any more. I'd rather not go direct thread or three lug. Thanks.

Re: Rotary Tumbler size for Spectre II Baffles

I went with an Extreme Tumblers Rebel 17. Thing's big enough to hold several suppressors worth of baffles.

Typically, in this context, it means to open a sealed can or convert a sealed can into a serviceable can. Usually accompanied by a recore job.

Re: Anyone got their 300SPS in hand yet?

I got mine back a month or so ago. Taken it out a few times with my 8.5" SBR 300 BLK. I've only shot 220gr subs through it, but it is quiet. It'll likely not move to any other hosts.

Re: Critique my list

Get an Omega or Saker instead of the Hybrid and Harvester. First, I agree with the above. I would also recommend more than one .22 can. Since you have a mono core (Sparrow) I'd go for a stackable alternative (SiCo Spectre II, DA Mask, AAC Element 2, etc..). Something with a steel stack for easy rou...

Re: Q. Ryder 22a Vs. Warlock 2? For Light weight & Easy to Clean. 22lr Only

The AAC Element 2 would also fit in this category. I too would not go with an aluminum can. Especially for a rimfire. I swap between the Spectre II and Element 2 on a MKIII pistol and while I notice the weight difference, it's not IMO a "decision quality" difference in handling. I'm on the prowl for...

Re: New CCI Quiet-22 LR - 710 fps

Not sure if it was just me, but I got really poor accuracy out of CCI Quiet. Ran it through a TacSol SBX 10/22 with a Spectre II. Standard velocity MiniMags were one ragged hole, Quiets were about 4" group. Quiets didn't cycle the action obviously. Even if the metering data claimed were true, it's s...

Re: Help with choosing First Rifle Can

Both of those are good cans in the $600-650 price range. I would also consider the SpecWar 556 since your considering the Specwar 762. Alternatively, you may want to consider the 762-SDN-6 to partner with the M4-2000. This way the 7.62 cans can migrate around both 5.56 and 7.62 guns. Neither the Spe...

Re: Getting a new can M4-2000 or SpecWar 7.62

Of those two, the Specwar. Keep in mind, nothing you put a dedicated 5.56 can on is going to be quiet (except .22lr, which is a bad idea for other reasons). At least with a 7.62 can you can shoot 300 blk and it will be quiet. It's been said that a Saker 762 with a 556 end cap is quieter than the Sak...

Shoots as accurate as I'm capable of. Prints nice little groups. Honesty, I shoot more steel than paper with it.

Re: 22lr Ruger barrels with aluminum threads/breach face -reliable?

I got an SBX barrel for my 10/22 take down. I love it so far. Zero issues with it. Keeps standard velocity mini mags subsonic. The steel sleeve barrel creates a concentric two component breach face. Shows typical wear and tear with regards to penning. Seems to be of the self limiting variety. Given ...

Re: Element 2 question

And to add insult to injury, I saw a Pilot II today that had the "TiRant inspired" end cap... Maybe I should buy it and swap end caps. I'm starting to think that they assemble these things with whatever parts they have laying around.

I have a Octane 45 HD and am also considering the Griffin product for my next go around. Not to bash, but the Griffin can, with the exception of the removable section, seems like an absolute knock off of the Octane. I like the flexibility that the Griffin can allows however. I see that AAC has now m...

I went with the three dedicated cans approach: Spectre II, Octane 45 HD, Saker 762. Covers the gambit of hosts. I added an Element 2 because I've got a bunch of .22s and the barrier to entry is quite low. Now that the immediate need is covered, I'm thinking that I should cover redundancy with anothe...

Those are the two rimfire cans I went with. I decided that I couldn't live without both of them, so I bought both. Went with the Spectre II first though. If your going to only get one, I'd go with the Spectre. Suppression wise, they're about the same. The Spectre is about .5" longer and a bit heavie...

Re: Cycling issues with Saker 762

I'd swap that buffer out to an H3. I've got a DD 10.3 that cycles fine with the SAKER762 (W/.30 endcap), but results across the board seem to be varied. Most common cure for these types of cycling issues is a buffer adjustment.
