You can get them hex and sqaure to use with 3 and 4 jaw chucks. Can't go wrong with these chucks Goo...

Re: Question on 3 jaw chuck

Good info.....as said "thinking of collets". For now will more than likely stay with four Jaw as it is already paid for I've had good luck with cheap Chinese ER40 collet systems, accuracy is within what I require. Each collet covers a 1mm range ie: 2-3mm, 3-4mm, 4-5mm. I bought the boxed set from G...

Re: Fluid Dynamics CAD Tools for Silencersmithing

What the NFA does it forces improvement. If the NFA wasn't here we would have no better than European suppressor designs which are for the most part decaades behind US design and performance. I have seen you make this statement before - which leads me to be curious as to which UK, and other Europea...

I could be wrong but seem to recall that Silencerco Patented the clamshell aspect of their design in which case if 82ndAirborne wanted to use that aspect of the design they would have to license it from the originator?
