I see nothing but problems with using that "tool"....best to have your barrel threaded on a lathe.

Re: My 9mm Form 1 with booster

The suppressor now has over 500 rounds and functions flawlessly on the G19. Threads look great and no visible damage to the lockup areas of the slide or barrel. I had a chance to accurately measure the spring strength in my factory cans and I did not use the spring in the original post, I decided to...

Re: MK760 coming out of "gun jail" tomorrow (pic)

I had a MK-760 from Southern Machine Tool & Die and a matching SG-9 suppressor from them too.
It was really quiet.... Just bolt noise.

It's also fun watching 70's TV shows and movies when the bad guys pull out 76's. :D
Enjoy.

Re: should i thread a suppressor or weld it to the barrel?

I don’t have the ability to thread a suppressor to a barrel. i only have the option of welding to the barrel and my main question is will that affect the quality of the silencer in a noise aspect? (First build) This is the silencersmithing section. I'm sure there are a few here that would like to r...

Re: Double barrel AR15

From the details, it looks as if the 'semi-automatic' version would be classified as a machine gun by the ATF as it fires two rounds simultaneously with a single pull of the trigger. It is not that both barrels can fire simultaneously that would get the ATF's attention, it is that they can be autom...

Re: SBR Lower Process??

Correct.
It is best to store your SBR upper at another location (friends home) until your approved paperwork arrives.
That keeps you from clicking it together and illegally fondling it. :shock:
