Re: M? Baffle Design. Please evaluate

I intend on suppressing everything I have with a threaded barrel, especially if I can be effective with a form 1 can. I already own the equipment, and the material is free. So its really costing me nothing but time and a stamp. And lets be honest, if I don't spend the $200 on the stamp, Ill end up b...

Re: M? Baffle Design. Please evaluate

I have an idea for you. First off, have the tube body be 17-4 stainless for the best durability but grade 9 tubing could also work or grade 5 from bar stock, depends on budget and ability. You’d need to get bar stock and hollow it out. Make it thin walled too. Have it be modularized with two sectio...

Re: M? Baffle Design. Please evaluate

If you have full CNC control, including rotary/lathe head, than you absolutely can create anything on it that a lathe could. Tool paths are ok. There are some pics of baffles with the face of the coaxial baffle portion having "ridges". In theory, they should aid in suppression. Lemme draw one up, a...

Re: Have approved Form in hand, but cannot find sources.

I retired as a lineman supervisor. And I still own a lot of equipment. Even though I rarely use any of them these days. But who knows when I'll need to change the bulb in my street light in my back yard? Least I can if I needed to. :lol: I work in sign business, and Ive changed plenty of HPS and ha...

Re: M? Baffle Design. Please evaluate

I don't see why you can't do cones or Ks if you can do Ms. Or why you have a problem boring and threading with a CNC; you can do beautiful thread milling work with a CNC that is very low tool pressure on thin parts. I made a 5698 brushless motor powered gearbox with an ER32 collet for just this rea...

Re: Have approved Form in hand, but cannot find sources.

just being the devils advocate, my nephew is a machinist for Exxon Mobil down here in Louisiana, and he doesn't own a single piece of equipment, or have any desire to own any.

Re: M? Baffle Design. Please evaluate

kutworksinc you have made several posts but to be clear the group needs to know everything about what you wish. Will this be a single cartridge suppressor. ie: .22LR only. Will this be a maximum suppression effort and what are your dimensional limits. What is the host weapon and the barrel length. ...

M? Baffle Design. Please evaluate

Ok, So after a little reading, I think I decided to use M baffles on my build. The cone is 60 degrees, and the bottom is balled milled. Top and bottom are each beveled to lock together when inside the can. This SHOULD make disassembly easier, and the baffles shouldnt solder themselves to the can wit...

absolute maximum level of suppression

After a conversation over a few beers with some friends this weekend, we started to wonder the same question, and none of us knew, so maybe you guy guys might have an answer. Have any of the suppressor companies ever built just a monumentally over engineered and oversized suppressor, just to see wha...

Re: is there such as a thing as too big?

I haven't given up on HPA at all, but I'm also not waiting around for it either. I find it insane we have file paperwork, wait for an absurd amount of time, and subject ourselves to background checks, just to own a tube with zero moving parts. And whats worse, the fact that, on record, the ATF wants...

Re: is there such as a thing as too big?

The thread got partially withdrawn by its author some years ago, but these hemispherical spun stainless baffles look pretty darn nice, and if memory serves the guy who made them said the result was a decently quiet can: http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae149/WickedWeapons/DSCF0091.jpg He said in ...

Re: is there such as a thing as too big?

Ill do a search for hemispheric baffles. Cant say Im familiar with that term.

I was planning on machining a G-core style monocore similar to Gemtech. I have a rotary index head on my CNC mill and Im ready to cut something on it.

is there such as a thing as too big?

Ok, so one of the form 1's I want to build is for a GSG 5pk. For those that dont know, its a .22LR clone of an MP5. We went and shot it over the weekend with my dads GM-22 on the end. Worked great, but it looked goofy. Is there any downside to having an oversized suppressor? Granted, I know I don't ...

Re: Spiral Baffle Design....yay or nay?

Wow. I'm honestly a little surprised....lol
I couldn't really find any info about the topic, I was hoping to be innovative. Oh well.

Is there a book I can read or something? So I don't end up asking 500 stupid questions?

Spiral Baffle Design....yay or nay?

Hey guys, Waiting on my form 1 to come back sometime in the next couple months, just FYI So until it comes back, I'm stuck in the CAD phase. While looking up baffle designs, and reading as much as possible, I think I have an idea for a baffle design, but have not seen anyone make anything similar. I...
