Re: O ring fit?

Visit the McMaster Carr website and search under "viton O-ring". They have a chart with the advertised dimensions versus actual dimensions. For instance, an O-ring that is 5/8" I.D. x 1/16" thick is not actually 5/8" (.625") I.D. x 3/4" (.750") O.D.. That O-ring actually measures .614" I.D. x .754" ...

Re: Ti-Rant 45 (45 ACP piston)

The flush fit .578-28 piston also works really well on the FN FNX Tactical pistols, which have an unusually long threaded barrel.

Re: Illusion 9 for an mpx SBR host?

As long as the MPX barrel is threaded either 1/2-28 or M13.5 x 1 LH, you could use the Illusion 9 with one of the soon-to-be-released fixed barrel spacers that will fit in the Illusion.

What size O-ring are you looking at? Is it an internal or external application?

Re: 300 Blackout and TI-Rant Suppressors

We're working on a dedicated 5/8-24 adapter for the Ti-Rant 45 that is essentially a piston and spacer all-in-one. We can't really make something like it for the Ti-Rant 9. When we designed the Ti-Rant 9 almost ten years ago, it was designed as a pistol silencer, not as a does-it-all silencer. As a ...

Re: Tirant M replacing previous models?

The 45 M will indeed replace the Ti-RANT 45 and Ti-RANT 45 S in the lineup. We do still have inventory of Ti-RANT 45's, so they will be available for a while yet.

There are no plans at this time to do a 9 M. But, if enough people expressed an interest.............

Re: Element 2 vs Pilot 2

Everyone is right, go Element 2. A couple hundred extra dollars spread out over the four to six months you'll be waiting on ATF will get you a silencer you can keep and use for a lifetime.

The truth about AAC.

Having been at SHOT 2015 and hearing some of the wild rumors and unfounded speculation going around about AAC, I felt I needed to step in, clear the air, and set the record straight. RUMOR: AAC is going out of business. FACT: AAC is not going out of business. We are, however, moving to a new facilit...

The major thrust of the law change was not so that Remington could build silencers in NY, it was so they could simply have them for T&E. Prior to the change, Remington had to get a letter from the military (not the police, the military) that specified the item they needed for a demonstration, when i...

Hey General Silvers, is there any difference in the baffles/endcap on the SR7 vs the N6? The baffle core in the SR5 is different from the M4-2000 in that it has been modified to reduce back pressure. Reducing back pressure minimizes "gas in the face", deposits less crud in the action, and minimizes...

Aside from a lack of gripping surface, quite a few people did not like the rear end cap aesthetically. Particularly the users who had bull barrelled hosts.
