Re: Odd predicament in acquiring can

Your home state has no bearing on any of this. Your current residence does. The state you live in may require special considerations that may or may not require a copy of orders assigning you there. Call a local NFA dealer and talk with them, I am sure if you are near Bragg or Lajuene (sp) the deale...

Re: newb from GA...saker 556 on a 22lr?

The 5.56 Saker wasn't designed for .22 LR use. The internals aren't favorable for that round, but a much higher pressure/velocity round like the 5.56. Look at some of the internals from successful 22LR suppressors vs. 5.56 or .30 cal cans. Not just size either, but the baffles, spacing volume et al....

Re: Golf ball dimpling/fluting with drill press?

What others have said ^

If you're intent on dimpling on a drill press, buy a $20, 1/4" ball mill, keep the pattern tight (edges overlapping),
don't go that deep and take your time.

Re: How dirty do red dot sights or scopes get from blowback

Never thought of this, I only have RDS' on my rifles, and none of them have ever gotten dirty from shooting suppressed, wet or dry. Not saying it won't happen, but it hasn't for me yet. I think the dirtiest for me is shooting my 10.5" SBR, 5.56mm with a .30 cal can. The whole insides get filthy as a...

Re: Suppressing my Glocks. Would a 45 can be better?

The larger bore of a 45 can would indeed reduce the already very unlikely chance of a baffle strike. If you only plan on shooting 9mm through it, a 9mm dedicated can, properly mounted on quality host/barrel/piston, and maintained, will also significantly reduce or eliminate the chance of a baffle st...

Re: First Suppressor

I keep a copy of my stamps in an expanding envelope in my range box. Lately I've taken pictures of them on my smart phone and have them on the phone and in the cloud (internet email). If I am shooting, I should always have one or both on me.

Re: unlock time

adjustable gas block tuned down
...means a smaller gas port.

Your choice of ammo, or powder if you reload your own can have a huge impact on how dirty it is getting.
COMBLOC ammo is notoriously dirty stuff.

Re: unlock time

Shooting suppressed is inherently dirtier, but not that dirty. As above, I can shoot hundreds and hundreds of rounds without having a grit induced ftf/fte issues, and yes, it do get dirty. A heavier buffer/spring combo will help hold the bolt blosed a tiny of a fraction longer, which will help reduc...

I think it is a general rage building against anything 'ATF'. People rage aginst anything that agrees with anything the ATF says or does.

Re: Stuck piston

As others have stated, use Kroil as well when it happens again (we all know it'll happen again).
Kroil is an amazing penetrating oil, and a small bit goes a very long way.

Re: broken suppressor - now a paperweight?

Wholly dependent upon the energy transferred from the bullet, to the various parts of the suppressor, the parts could be embedded in soft wall, cieling or range baffle material.

Looking at the website pictures, it doesn't appear it would take hardly any work at all to turn that into a silencer. A crappy one sure, but still a silencer.
