Re: Ruger Silent SR

I like S&B subsonic 22 LR. It stays subsonic in my suppressed pistols and rifles and I buy it by the case. Winchester subsonic is pretty good but louder than the S&B. Aguilla subsonic, when I can find it in Alaska, is about equal to the S&B in quietness but costs me a little bit more because I can o...

Re: Disappointed in new can

Well, I sent it off to AAC and it just returned today. From what I can see, they did nothing at all. Just shrugged and sent it back. Spoke with CS, and she says there's no notes at all, and the tech that looked at it is now on vacation. All I have is the American Eagle 124 subsonic and some Speer L...

Re: OBSIDIAN with 9mm end cap

I've chewed out an Octane 9mm cap. Once it was nicked, I shot on and traced it to double tapping faster than the piston could lock up. http://i67.tinypic.com/wcodg2.jpg I can't find where they sell the 9 cap for the Octane 45 anymore. Did you get it from the special run from Silencer Shop or did it...

OBSIDIAN with 9mm end cap

I've had an Obsidian .45 since they came out. Love it and how quiet it is. I like to use foamy spray white lithium as an ablative. That stuff makes any can sound better. Anyway I bought a 9mm end cap when I could get one, already had the piston and put it on my Sig MK25 with a factory threaded barre...

Re: Disappointed in new can

I specifically use 147 grain rounds listed at 985 fps, so there shouldn't be any chance of environment bringing the rounds supersonic. I'm looking for a loud "thwack" instead of a medium "bang!". There's more to quiet ammo than just velocity. Different powders burn differently and can have a very n...

Re: Disappointed in new can

Go shoot it outside. Federal American Eagle 147 subsonic ammo sucks... it's inherently loud. You have a good platform for testing suppressors, it's what Tyler from Silencer Shop uses a lot of the time in his videos. I think it's that you are shooting it inside. Even shooting outside at the range, wh...

Re: Kinda new to the whole, thing. GM-45.

Strongly suggest that you sell your GM-45 for whatever you can get for it and buy a Liberty Mystic X, or a Cosmic (more versatile, has a core hole big enough for .45), an AAC Tirant 9M or 45M (again, more versatile as it, is designed for .45 but easily and efficiently shoots 9mm), a Rugged Obsidian ...

Re: Lost Baffle, Bad customer service.

I still believe that AAC is wrong on the baffle issue. I can't find anything where they could not rebaffle or recore a suppressor. Send it to someone else next time. I believe any SOT manufacturer can help do the job. I could be wrong, but AAC may have been holding out due to the liability of the l...

Re: Lost Baffle, Bad customer service.

They Can Not shorten the tube to less than what the length of the complete unit is listed on your Form 4 or Form 3. This would constitute "making a new suppressor" and you would have to get a new tube with a new serial number and pay another $200. If they did it, then the ATFness falls on them. Jus...

Just ask AAC to shorten the tube for the remaining baffles. That should end the pissing contest. He did! Dec 8 @ 2048hrs.

I recently picked up a GM-45 and am more than happy with it. The 3 other people who have shot it thought it sounded pretty good to. Quite frankly, I read this thread after I purchased the GM-45, which really freaked me out about the quality of the series of suppressor. That said, given the posted h...

Re: Gemtech .22 Ammo

The GemTech .22 subsonic is loud to me and my friends. S&B and Aquilla subs are far, far quieter and just as accurate when shooting a C-zone steel at 25 yards. One is usually not playing bullseye when shooting a .22 pistol with a suppressor.

I feel the same way about my GM-45.. It's LOUD... especially the first shot. Only full of ablative does it fall under the level of pain. It is by far the loudest 45 suppressor I have ever sold or shot. Even the older AWC can meant to be packed with lithium grease is way quieter! I do have a Quicksan...

Re: Rugged Oculus vs Dead Air Mask (Metered)

For my purposes, I will sometimes use a cheaper dB meter to sort of "confirm" what I am hearing. I don't put it up against any stated numbers but for side by side comparisons it can offer at least some insight. i.e. metering 120 on can A vs 125 on Can B, when can A reads 120.5, 119.9, 119.7, 120.1,...
