Re: Having cans or parts of engraved.

Not sure how it works for manufacturers, but for individuals any work on the tubes ends prior to approval would be a violation. Commercial engravers who do NFA engraving require that tubes be sent to them with the ends non-machined. Your "tubes" would become silencers as soon as you thread the ends ...

Re: Working with a little 7 x 12 lathe

If you are not ready to upgrade to a bigger lathe.
Find a local shop to internal thread your tubes
and use your mini to make your internals.

Re: Baffle Alignment? To Stagger or Not?

Alternating gives a less restrictive path for gases moving forward
because the next scoop is in that path when the baffles are alternated 180.
I've learned to drop my K's in the tube randomly.

I've been running mine for 2 hours and drain off the dirty water/soap.
Run another hour with fresh water/soap and internals are perfect.
But then again I only have 500 to 800 rounds on them.

During the RUSH in '86.....form 3's were still being done in a week and form 4's were being approved in a month. At least that is what I remember.

Re: Extra K or small blast chamber?

You're gong to need an expansion chamber (size??). The .45 is a big hole and I don't think sticking the extra K in there is going to help the way you think unless you were building an integral carbine setup with more length. I think gong the other way .... Bigger expansion chamber and six K's with p...

Yea, and thanks for not blindly recommending KAC as well. Their time has passed but the 'Navy SEALs' generation can't seem to get over them.

My bad....sorry for not understanding. I've never seen a 12ga round deform to the point it won't slide down the tube or be able to be chambered just from sitting in the tube long-term. I've seen rounds become tarnished on the base from sitting in a tube. Telling the user to breakdown the entire weap...
