.22 or .45 suppression gives most satisfaction.

Bon Chance.
I 2nd the port noise. Stronger spring to delay the blow back.

Also, 45? I would vote .22 and 9mm myself.

Re: Specter 2 upgrade worth it?

Someone else will probably disagree with me vehemently. So, I like the styling of the old Spectre better and you will lose the front and rear cap and it will be in the new style. After prolonged use, it will be easier to get the baffles out. If you are going to do this, please contact me first, I h...

I wouldn't. It should be ok if you load subs, but you are basically at a .40 now.

Re: Looks like AFT just raided SDTA

I saw something on this yesterday. Apparently, the internet is saying that the ATF considers threaded tubes to be silencers, regardless of their marketing and/or intended sales purpose. Seeing that there have been no rulings, as of the new year: - wtf has changed? - why would the ATF go this route?...

Your can is made from aluminum. It is NOT made with any titanium or stainless.

It's not a paid xfer if sent to another SOT dealer via F3. But regardless, the dealer can't even do that now, due to his renewal problems.

Re: My Suppressor is STUCK (In ATF/SOT hell)! How do I save it?

It wouldn't matter if it were a problem with his SOT. It is a PAID transfer out.

Is there an issue with his FFL?

If he is an individual FFL and his license is expired, it is in his name and it is a PAID transfer out.

If he is a Corp FFL, well ... there might be issues.

I don't see a need to use the dip unless you are cleaning a 22 suppressor.
