Re: trustees possessing nfa items

Trust's don't have addresses. It doesn't matter where the trust was setup. you can have trustees in other states and it wouldn't matter. The form is filled out with the trust name and the address of the trustee who has primary access. "Maker. (1) If the maker is an individual, the entire form shall ...

Re: Rem 870 sbs barrel legallity

so if I keep the barrel away from the gun, like in a family member's safe that I don't have the combo to, then it would technically be fine, right If you plan to have the barrel cut before the F1 is approved, this is the way to do it. Provided they don't own an 870 This is correct The case law behi...

Re: So who's filing for new Form 1 or Form 4 before Obama kills off NFA on trusts?

There are no "certification" requirements for fingerprints. Any one can roll your prints, including yourself. You can pick up an ink pad for printing from amazon or ebay. You don't want the stamp kind, you want to make sure it has the heavier ink and is made for fingerprints. All the directions are ...

Re: SBS / AOW Form 1 dimensions

your OAL and barrel length are whatever your final dimensions will be. A SBS doesn't require a stock to be a SBS, so even in AOW configuration it is still a SBS. You could fill out the form 1 with either of the OAL dimensions you listed if you cut barrels first, but if it were me I'd want the paperw...

Re: 308 design critique

You can't have 2 endcaps (ie an extra as only 1 is used at a time) but you can have 1 endcap with 2 different adapters that thread into it.

Like a multimount. One adapter can be for direct thread, and one can be for threading onto a break.

Re: 308 muzzle brake ?

Depending on how you can set it up will decide how tight you can go , I'd dialed barrels in off the ID of the bore and bored the brake to only .020" over bullet diameter and progressively reamed it at the range to see if the tighter bore showed any benefit in recoil reduction (it didn't). Id sugges...

It's concentric within the tolerances of my equipment and testing/measuring devices. If I had to put a number on it within .005 probably closer but I don't have the equipment to test.

Re: Suggestions for a table top Lathe and Welder?

Personally I'd look to auction houses for a used lathe. Most of the bench tops aren't very good, and the ones that are aren't cheap. For reference I got my 14" engine lathe for $900 and it came with a 8" four jaw. I've put much more into it with tooling, but if you can find a decent lathe with a too...

I see them go in the $500-800 range all the time at auction around here. Of course they are smaller tables without power feed or dros, but still a much better option than the store bought "cheap mill"

Way too many baffles. Aside from that it looks basically like a Spectre1. Are you suggesting shorter overall length, or less baffles with more space between them? Why don't you just copy the Spectre? The baffle size, spacing etc work, thats why SWR uses it! ;) You are reinventing the wheel like a m...

Well after a lot of reading it seems the most admired among the 17 hmr guys is the popularity with the Spectre and the omega baffle. So my next attempt was with omega baffles. Any tips or suggestions here?

there are ultrasonic cleaning solutions that are aluminum safe, but I have also read that they are hard on finishes as well. Great reports on cleaning up the internals if they are removable though.

Re: AR SBR in 9mm

Personally I like a 5" barrel. 9mm was designed as a pistol round and the added length does not give much more of an advatage to range. However it does adversely affect subsonic. And we are talking suppressed so subsonic is more important than an extra couple yds of range. And you can shoot a 5" bar...
