Re: My first Can... 2nd video attempt

That reminds me a lot of my first suppressor build. I used double spring valve retainers. I had very limited tooling. But, I had determination, and after some work, it all turned out in the end. After hearing how it sounds on your rimfires, you should be proud of yourself. https://i.imgur.com/ILLHD...

CVA Scout question

Does the barrel come off the CVA Scout pistol easily? Their site describes it as having non interchangeable barrels, does that mean it's on in a way that makes it impractical to take it off? I'm considering getting one in 357 and I'd like it threaded.

Re: Suppressing a lever action .30-30...any tips?

There won't be enough ballistic loss to make much of a difference. 18" vs 16" ain't squat. What are you going to shoot through it? Standard ammo? Subsonic hand loads?

I'm liking this project. A suppressed thuddy-thuddy lever gun is pretty cool.

Re: Hard chrome plating baffles for abrasion resistance at home

I would think that with 17-4ph baffles you should be pretty good without adding plating. That's a fairly tough material. It might be a benefit on a mild steel part, but even that's questionable if the juice would be worth the squeeze.

Re: How much does a sound suppressor really silence a rifle?

You always see in the movies people firing guns with silencers on them that seem to perform miracles. I already know this is all just over-dramatization typical of Hollywood. But to what extent I am not actually certain. But in a real life scenario how much noise would a $300-500 sound suppressor a...

I'd also suggest 357 out of those choices. 300blk is a great suppressed rifle round but in a single shot the 357 has a whole lot going for it.
