Re: Engraving - do you try to "clock" the lettering?

I've orientated them on my integral builds so they line up with the receiver's engravings.
All others form 1's are just centered in the middle of the tube.

Re: What are you guys paying for NFA transfers?

Anyone charging $200 to $300 is someone I would not do business with.
If you are buying something out of a stocking dealer's inventory and paying retail....there should be no charge.
If you are just using the dealer to get the item instate... $50 would not be out of line.

Occasionally I've been kicked in the ass.

Re: Material selection & wall thickness...

For me wall thickness is really determined by TPI used on my endcaps. I've pretty much used 24 TPI on my last builds and they need .028" depth. I like the tube to have atleast double the thread depth, so I've been using atleast .065" tubes. You may like to bore open the thread area so that your baff...

Re: Finding an antique unregistered suppressor

Odds are that the suppressor needs to be destroyed.
But make sure the cardboard storage tube and any Maxim manuals are saved.

He said he'd bored the holes about 8" after the chamber, not 12". Sorry, my error....typing too fast. and yes, around 4" to 4.5" is good, anything less you will may have cycling problems. There was a design posted that those forward ports (like the OP's) were enlarged and made like a muzzlbreak wit...

Re: Ever seen this type of can before?

you hear a crack so I don't think I am really losing much velocity. Putting your Ports closer to the chamber would of helped in decreasing the velocity. You have established your velocity with 12" of barrel, kind of hard to slow a bullet down after that. :wink: You best use sub-sonics with that set...

What if one were to reduce the number of K's and use a 'trumpet-mute' type of spacer after each K?

The least number I have done is SIX K Baffl...
