Re: SCOTUS refuses case for gun rights on non-violent felons

What if the conviction was due to a plea bargain? I know of a non violent felon that took a plea bargain to avoid confiscation of his home so his family had a roof over their heads.The problem is that they only had testimony of other felons.I see it as abuse of power to get a conviction at any cost...

Re: Muzzle loading integral suppressor

Not to intentionally twist the nipples of our beloved Uncle, but if a fixed mystery can of some type is on a non-firearm ( Blackpowder boomstick of some variety) Does it logically follow that a captive piston cylinder could be used on a muzzle loading revolver? Our weird uncle may like a titty twis...

Re: Muzzle loading integral suppressor

I haven't thought much about coating's but the idea has merit. These are a few ideas I have on bullet types.Both are weight forward hollow base.I'm not looking to get pounded so a light projectile & FFFG will be used in the large bore short barrel.The final design will depend on ballistics and FPE a...

Coated projectiles are another option.
Other than powder coating what options do I have? I was planing on just using Crisco packed into the base like you would a Minnie Bullet.

Re: Muzzle loading integral suppressor

Depending on your choice of projectile wouldn't you still get a bit of lead fouling with smokeless? Smokeless or blackpowder will cause lead fowling air guns suffer from it too.The trick is to polish the bore so its easy to remove.Done correctly the accuracy is improved as well.I don't expect to sh...

Re: Muzzle loading integral suppressor

I have said a whole bunch of times that Silencerco would have met with a lot more success if they had built a smokeless gun. Savage did it. A smokeless gun solves all the cleaning problems. I thought Savage stopped selling the smokeless muzzleloader because of law suites.I doubt the product was def...

Re: 45 Cal Suppressor Design Review

The integrated suppressor on a Delisle is about 18 X 2 inches or so, and its close to "Hollywood" quiet. I wonder if this is largely due to the one foot chain of baffles, or just having a massive volume? Which ever is the case, it works! The Delisle and other quiet ones are close to 50 cubic inches...

Re: 45 Cal Suppressor Design Review

I know we are throwing allot at you but you can add tune-ability to the design.If you internally thread the tube and externally the baffles you can then change the spacing and the blast chamber volume That'll be fun once carbon gums up the threads. That's a hard pass from me. Yup. You wouldn't have...

Re: 45 Cal Suppressor Design Review

I would thread together the entire core if you don't use a inner tube so it can be held in tension.A thin non threaded outer tube can be used and alignment is assured building it this way. You might add a muzzle brake to the design or use more baffles with the first few vented to the coaxial space.T...

Re: 45 Cal Suppressor Design Review

You could build a coaxial suppressor.Try 1.375 w/ the 1.625 outer tube.The large expansion area works well for blowback operated weapons.

Re: Muzzle loading integral suppressor

I've followed several people who claimed they were starting one, but yet to produce a final product. It'd be great to see one done. The legalese seems to be on the side of the maker. The baffles and caps are also welded so the barrel/suppressor is one piece that is a legal point in the BATFEs lette...

I'm confused by this statement:

Why would the liberals go after criminals? that would be a first.

You have little idea of what crime is like in that area of the world. You can't compare it to anything in the USA.

Re: Recommend some carbide tools

Dont let your tool get too hot. Like yondering said, once a HSS tool gets too hot and loses its edge, forget it. If you cant touch the tools because they're too hot, either slow down or use coolant between passes. Carbide is more forgiving with heat. Ive never had a tool get too hot from threading....
