Re: Just got my form 1 back today and was a bit surprised...

I would think the key to matching the performance of the professionally manufactured cans is to overbuild one. It's gonna be heavier and longer than a pro can, but I'd imagine you could meet or beat them for performance. It just ain't gonna be as pretty or compact. I've been pondering the idea myself.

Re: Update on me having waited 7 months for a form 3.

Another update: Drove an hour to my dealer today. I get there, the guy gets the suppressor out of the safe, looks around the box, and then tells me he can't do anything without the transfer forms that should have been in the box. So, now he says he has to call and get those sent. That's why they we...

Re: Update on me having waited 7 months for a form 4.

The form 4 is a tax paid transfer dealer to dealer would have been a form 3 no tax trasnfer so somebody's got the story messed up. It's just a terminology snafu on my part. Form 3 then. The story is still the same. Just to reiterate, I think Major is a good guy and a good person to buy from. I just...

Update on me having waited 7 months for a form 3.

So, I ordered a Stainless Sparrow on January 28th from Major. I'm patient, don't spam e-mails asking where it's at, etcetera. In I believe June, going from memory here, I'd have to look at my Outlook at home to be sure, I e-mailed asking for a status update, since, from what I've read, it should hav...

Re: Gay-Americans love AAC

Ah. Honestly, I don't know a damn thing about suppressors aside from the Silencerco one (Stainless Sparrow) I ordered the better part of a year ago. For that matter, I don't know anything about AAC, its suppressors, or cliquishness towards AAC on this site. There sure is a lot of weird tension and i...

Well, that's good to hear, at least. Maybe if I'm actually able to get this thing sent to my dealer soon, I'll have it before fall.

Re: My "new" Ruger MkII avec Pac Lite.

I've looked at them before. Personally, I don't think stripping one is that big of a deal. After you do it a few times, it loosens up pretty well. I don't really have any problems getting the bolt working again. Very simple operation after you've got it down. That being said, those speed strip kits ...

Re: My "new" Ruger MkII avec Pac Lite.

To be honest, I would considered buying one of those Ruger factory 22/45's with the upper and lower rails, had they been on Gunbroker a couple of weeks ago when I was in a buying frenzy. I know my concerns are probably unfounded, but I do wonder about the longevity of this Pac Lite upper. Aluminum ...

Re: My "new" Ruger MkII avec Pac Lite.

Did you re-assemble correctly? I had an issue a few weeks ago when I didn't hold the gun correctly while putting the mainspring housing back in (you know how you have to hold it pointing up, pointing down, whatever, whatever). So I missed a step. Bolt wouldn't go back all the way, when it did (with...

Re: My "new" Ruger MkII avec Pac Lite.

And for some reason, after we put the Volquartsen parts in, the bolt isn't always going fully back in. It acts like it's hanging on something. I.E., you pull the bolt back a few times, it'll go in, go in, go in, then maybe the fifth time, pull it back again, and it'll stick out a little bit and not ...

They actually had a better price than Paul Zint did for the same piece. They're based out of Georgia, ...

I'm putting a Volquartsen trigger, sear, and extractor in it this weekend. Should I have bought a Clark hammer bushing for it, too, or is that mostly MkIII people who need those?
