Re: FireClean

From my posts here: http://nfatalk.org/forum/showthread.php?t=10344 Synopsis: Is there a product that will help keep baffles clean or make cleaning easier? After getting my old AAC Evo 9 and Pilot jail broken, I started needing to deal with cleaning the baffles. Not a huge task, but I'm always looki...

Re: FireClean

For Silencer baffles it's not effective. For Firearms it works fine, but it's way too expensive. For Silencer baffles, use Silicone based oil (like DOT 5 brake fluid), FrogLube (paste works well) or Thompson Center Bore Butter (pretty much the same as FrogLube but cheaper). Silicone works well and i...

Re: Aftermarket pistol barrels (.45ACP & threaded)

My Kimber Super Match took a lot of fitting. It wouldn't even fit into the slide at all. I used lapping compound on the outside of the barrel hood and tapped it in and out until it was nice an smooth. It took a little work, but once it was in, it was not a problem. Basically, either the hood of the ...

Re: Aftermarket pistol barrels (.45ACP & threaded)

Sounds like a good plan. It's what I would do. It's always best to go factory when you can. With 1911's, it doesn't matter too much, there will always be fitting needed (at least a lot of the time). With Glock, HK, Sig, etc. factory barrels are the way to go, even if you have to use a metric piston....

Re: Aftermarket pistol barrels (.45ACP & threaded)

Storm Lake makes a great threaded 1911 barrel. You can get them from MidwayUSA, they are usually in stock.
I have three of them now.
That said, 1911 parts, especially barrels are rarely drop in parts.

Re: AAC Mini4 Question (vs M4-2000/SDN-6) Question

A friend has one and it's a nice little silencer for what it is. He bought it because whenever he take any training classes, he gets tired of lugging around the full sized silencer on the end of his rifle. He wanted something smaller, lighter and easier to swing around. It removes the harshness of t...

Re: Ar15 mid length with AAC sr7 silencer issues ? New to silencers

It sounds like it's over gassed. You can try a heavier buffer to see if it helps, however, if it is over gassed, an adjustable gas block or other gas limiting system (WAR receiver, etc) would be needed. After tuning my last two adjustable gas blocks, it makes things run pretty damn smooth. Reduced r...

Re: Specs to handle a 308 8" barrel?

8" 308 subsonic == 300BLK. If you are going that short with subsonic, I'd go 300BLK. It was made to run that short and subsonic and you'll have a much easier time getting it to run well. The case volume is very large on the 308's to run subs. 308 subs run great in a bolt gun, but I haven't seen one ...

I don't know about other places, but in Virginia you cannot have a loaded rifle or pistol when on VA waterways. There may be one or two minor exceptions to this, but it is generally true. State laws are really going to be a problem. I'm not seeing any law preventing carrying in VA waterways. There ...

Re: Delrin QA/QD muzzle brake model

Why ACME threads? If the silencer becomes loose, it will end up unscrewing further with less effort than if you had a finer pitch. That could lead to a baffle strike. Most thread over muzzle brakes that I have seen use a finer pitch thread pattern (Griffin, Wilson, SAS, etc). All of the ACME threade...

Also, don't forget to inspect and clean the threads and end cap on the Liberty. Just as the shoulder and threads could cause an issue, so could the end cap on the liberty.

Re: 10/22 SBR can.. Warlock 2?

SilencerCo/SWR used to upgrade the Spectre to the Spectre II for a fee (just a baffle stack and end cap swap for them)

I prefer the II's. They have a lower tone that sound more quiet to my ear (and others I have shot them with).

K baffles are harder to remove when dirty than the CTA baffles in the Spectre II.

I have both a K and a CTA stack and the CTA design is better for removal and cleaning.
