Re: Sten MK II Silencer

Hi, here is how you do it with modern K baffles. You need a spare barrel nut then weld a steel tube to it to make the can. Fill it with Aluminium K baffles and it will be very quiet with sub sonic ammo I don't still have the drawings but you should be able to scale up off the photos You see the star...

Nice work John, well done.

I see you made the jigs like mine, easy to make and seem to work well.


Looking forward to your next one

Re: Suppressor mounting

I keep reading that concentricity is key to avoid a strike in the can, which makes perfect sense. I'm working with an already threaded barrel, planning on using those existing threads for mounting, but don't want to rely on the threads alone for alignment. Perpendicularity of a shoulder doesn't nec...

Re: A thoughtful gift

I had one that size for years and did lots with it and quite lot of small spray jobs, like refinishing stocks. it worked just fine and most of all when machining, just for cleaning to blow swarf off when you were measuring etc. For bigger spraying jobs I had another tank to link with it to increase ...

Re: air gun (PCP pistol) baffle design idea (to 3D print)

I tried one of my K baffle cans on a mates PCP rifle and you could only hear the mechanism operating.

Just make/print a K baffle can 6" long with 8 k's, it will be silent

Re: K Baffle Suppressor Set-Up

Bear with me as I'm a new user and relatively new to the whole concept. I'm a machinist and I've been interested in starting the process to manufacture my own suppressor for a Glock 19. I've gotten a lot of good information off of other threads, however, I'm curious as to how most people keep the K...

Re: Chiappa 1911 22

Thanks gents, I have spoken with the guy and seen photos, the barrel is threaded as you say. I know these things are made from cheap pot metal, for what I want, this thing would just be a demonstrator for my little 22 cans, so put no more than a 100 or so rounds through it each year, it would do the...

Chiappa 1911 22

Hi Gents anyone know anything about the Chiappa 1911, I have been offered one at a good price but want it to put a can on, if you check out my old posts you can see I have no problem with the technical stuff or workshop equipment. The question is can you actually remove the barrel from these things,...

Re: K-Baffle Question

I looked at that idea a few years back and I think the consensus was that they would cancel each other out.

I have made hundreds and now and wold say that conventional vents are the best option.

Re: Pistol caliber carbine questions...

I have an AR in 9mm, with homebuilt suppressor (I make them), it is like reasonably well suppressed 22 and you have the 32 round Uzi mag. Only problem with the AR is you get a lot of spring/buffer noise. I also have a Skorpion, with decent k baffle can the 32 acp is silly quiet. I would say go for t...

Re: Form-1 50 BMG suppressor

6 fire bricks, some metal strapping, and a propane torch made a kiln. This got the metal sheet to glowing read and it pressed much easier.....BUT, it still ripped instead of formed. I think the dies were sucking the heat out of the metal and cooling it too fast. The next attempt will heat and form ...

Re: Form-1 50 BMG suppressor

I am even thinking that you might need to press it in stages, maybe starting of with a big round nose and no hole in the plate. I think that relatively sharp point will always tear the plate if you start with a pilot hole. Good luck, I will be interested to see how you get on
