He has a silencer. If he's going to buy and shoot the ammo for testing he doesn't need a chrono, he can just listen for sonic crack. Ammo with no sonic crack was subsonic. :D

Re: Getting checked for legal silencer and stamp

^^^Where in NC?

I do the same thing you do. I have a small binder full of reduced-size watermarked copies of all my gun paperwork that lives in my glove compartment, or in my carry-on when I fly with guns.

Re: 308 to 22?

The CNC Guns site shows very poorly designed K baffles, I would not emulate those. If you want a commercial silencer, pretty much any stainless/inconel .308 silencer would be fine for occasional limited .22LR use. If you gunk it up you can use the Dip to clean it. Or buy a disassembling .308 silence...

Re: Solvent traps/adapters crackdown

The article is garbage. It refers to the oil filter adapters, which is a long-settled issue, not the current wave of "solvent trap" components sold online, which are all very carefully considered from a legal perspective. And the article he links to "prove" his point makes no mention whatsoever of a...

Re: Individual examiner times

I don't think the examiners are the ones licking envelopes. Approved forms probably go in a stack to be sent out by the mail room. They probably have a giant mound of them to get through and are back logged just like the examiners.

Saker K with direct-thread mount is an awesome choice for SBRs. Very durable and good sound while being a bit lighter and smaller than with the MAAD mount.

Re: Need advice on a 5.56 suppressor

I think you're making a very tall order. QD systems add a lot of weight to a can. Non-Titanium cans under 16oz are all K-length and not very quiet. There are some full size Ti QD cans in your weight range like the Gemtech G5 Ti but I don't think Ti is the best choice for any hard use on an SBR. And ...

Re: AAC Mini4 Question (vs M4-2000/SDN-6) Question

Mini4 is loud. A friend of mine has one on an entry carbine, not fun at all. It's more of a moderator, than a suppressor. As per AAC: Mini4 22dB reduction, M42K 32dB reduction. 10dBs is a huge difference to the shooter. M42K is a much better suppressor for the "casual" shooter. No matter how good a...

Re: When did the "New 762-SD" start?

The Cyclone has like 10 baffles, I don't think the new SD has that many. Maybe it's like a QD Cyclone K with a big blast chamber to hold the muzzle mount.
