Re: TROS or Tornado Tech?

They do good work (when they do it), but they don't know how to handle their business. They blew me off several times when I was trying to give them business, and lots of guys have had their barrels tied up with them for months on end... one guy in particular hadn't seen his barrel for 18 months. Th...

Re: TROS or Tornado Tech?

Between those two, go with TROS. They do high quality work. I wouldn't send anything to TT if they were the last gig in the US.

Re: S&W M&P9 factory barrel in a M&P9 compact.

hmmm . . . now you have me thinking. Off to find a factory full size barrel . . . I had heard they won't "fit" either. Not sure about the M&P line. I know a Glock G19 factory threaded barrel drops into a G26 and works fine. But that's going from compact to subcompact. A G17 barrel does not drop int...

Re: Why I buy SWR silencers

Just because SWR/Silencerco has great products/customer service, that isn't a reason to disregard all the other manufacturers that also have great products/customer service. I have seven silencers from 6 different companies. I would deal with all of them again because they all have something worth ...

Just measure your old one, or the diameter where it is supposed to go... any supply house should have them. HD or Lowes might even have one that would work.

Re: Stripped AR Lower to Pistol to SBR to Suppressor

The easiest thing I've found, is situate the Rx (with the butt-stock mounted, and fully extended) perpendicular to the floor or bench or whatever you are measuring off of. Make sure it is plumb to whatever surface you are setting it on, and measure up to the center of the front take-down pin hole. F...

Yes that is pretty much it, it can be in oprational condition (though stored with a vital part missing) and you can get ammo Strange rules but not too hard to live with So what is the penalty if you are caught firing it? The 'rules' may not be hard for you to live with... it would be sheer torture ...

I'm filling out a 5320.20 so I can take some toys with me to visit my family out of state... the toys are legal in that state. For box 5 (reason for transportation) would " recreation with family members" be an acceptable reason (to the ATF)? Is there something better to put? What have you used for ...

Please let me know...because the 242 is not working and I don't think actually attaching the suppressor then backing the threads off later for transport or cleaning will produce the desired results. Have you tried putting 242 on the threads and mounting the can yet? If you haven't, then how do you ...

It does NOT cure as intended in open air. You said you are letting things set for two days to cure to the point you are using it... used properly it cures in 30 minutes.

Re: Thread on can: Best way to keep it from unscrewing

The correct way to use the blue (or any) Loctite is to clean threads with brake cleaner/lacquer thinner/denatured alcohol/or similar, put a bit of loctite on the male threads, screw the can on tight, and let it set 30 minutes. Loctite doesn't really cure up in the open, it needs to be in a joint to ...
