Form 1, 45 can questions

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.

Form 1, 45 can questions

Post by Ethos » Wed Aug 20, 2014 2:49 pm

got the form 1 stamped.....

material, i was told the can should be the lightest possible, hence made from aluminum

i listed the can on the paper as 8 inches in length, what should the diameter be?

what baffles? i was told k baffles work well in a 45 cal

how many baffles?, and which baffle material, i am assuming the first should be stainless for durability

this will be mounted on a sig 227, so i will, i assume be needing a piston, i seen that one of my distributors has pistons for sale for the tyrant, it has the proper threads for the sig barrel and is the proper caliber, i could buy one, if there are no legal snafu's, or just make one, they're cheap

the piston is only the inside part of the Nielsen device. gemtec and liberty both sell the full booster but both are 1/2 28 so not good for your 45.

I just went through trying to get a silencerco booster and unless you know someone good luck :)
