Yes, it can be legal to make a silencer. For everything Form-1, from silencer designs that are easily made, to filing forms with the BATF, to 3D modeling. Remember, you must have an approved BATF Form-1 to make a silencer. All NFA laws apply.

Been awhile,,,

Post by 1badbagger » Mon Sep 21, 2020 5:45 pm

,,,since I've been on here. I have had in my hand for 4 years now a tax stamp for a home made suppressor. Just now getting around to building a 9mm can. I'm a CNC machinist and was planning to do all the work, but time doesn't allow me to so I discovered this web sight today.......https://www.hawkinnovativetech.com/shop/.......has anyone just bought the parts from them and assembled their can?

I've got a YHM Titanium .30 cal, so the 9mm is next, eventually maybe a .22, but that's down the road.

Any suggestions where to buy baffles or even get prints or a file I can use at work to make my own baffles?
Thanks

I think the best thing going for 60 degree cones are the Cerberus wavelink.

If you want to spend a lot there are better options like the Quell tech FLO . You can get one pretty quiet with these but the $$$ per dB get logarithmic after a while

shld isn't shipping for at least another month, and I hate being a BETA tester per se.

I can't find out where cerebus is located and the queltech $500.00 ti trap I would have ordered tonight but they're sold out.


Right now I'm leaning towards the shld route unless someone else chimes in with a suggestion.

Thanks

Cerberus is in Minnesota. I have a set of their baffles. Great baffles that index perfectly every time. . I'm on the shld list for the 6" radial kit. $300 after discount . Making a .45 can out of that one.

Yugo,
Thanks for the help. I found the coupon code on the sight. I'm looking at a 7" either the 60 degree or radial kit. Will be for a 9mm host. Which would be better? Also, would you recommend "clipping" them, I think it's called? I'm a CNC machinist so any "extra" machining is a non-issue.

Yeah you always clip. Major difference in performance. File your form 1 and your parts will be in around the time the form comes back.

YUGO

Did you get your SHLD kit or did you opt for the free cerakote that'll delay it 2 weeks?

They called me yesterday and I went for the 2 week plan. It gets me nervous when they do s--t like that. Always pay with a credit card.

Got the last of the Cerberus stuff today. Its all gone.

Is there a reason you don’t build it yourself since you have CNC?

Time is the biggest factor. I've had a tax stamp for a home build for 4 years and just getting around to making time to "finish" this solvent trap into a working unit.

Marginal difference if any on pistols. Maybe favoring radials . The SHLD set looks well machined so theres that and the baffles are short and lots of them in a short package. All +++'s. Ive got 30+ silencers. If everything was the same it would get dull.

I was thinking 22lr and 556 maybe 6mm ARC and 6.5 grendel who knows. Sounds like it's the 60* cones then
