Machining at it's finest.

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.

Machining at it's finest.

Post by bakerjw » Mon Nov 23, 2015 9:30 pm

Someone posted a link to the OSS suppressors website. I know we all fret about designs and machining limitations. What they've done, as shown in this video, is astounding. I suspect that it is a pain to clean if it powders up though.

WOW! That's Got a sh*t load of layers.
That's quite the machining marvel.
I bet when it gets dirty enough to clean it will have to be (dipped).
So, for all the machine work is the sound reduction worth it?
WOW! :shock:

It might be machining at it's finest, but unless it also turns lead into gold I consider it a design nightmare. Can you imagine taking that one apart for cleaning?

Looks like they were heavily influenced by Mitchell Wurbell. :roll:

a coworker has one for his 308 bolt gun , for the cost and weight its no where near worth it , while it does work and suppress the rifle to hearing safe it does not by any stretch "out perform" any other quality 308 cans that are far more simple to clean and WAY less to go wrong.
I haven't be able to try one on a gas operated gun which is what is said to be where they shine by reducing gas pressure far lower than other can , personally I think that a very simple issue fixed with a good gas block.

It's a technological masterpiece and engineering nightmare.I'm glad I don't have to service it.

The video was very cool thank you!

Sort of like the "high Tech" version of a lot of steel wool crammed between a lot of thin walled concentric tubes ,,--- with holes ..
I would bet that there are "recesses and corners" of that thing that gasses never touch .. :mrgreen:

Would love to see one taken apart after 100 -200 -300 -400 -500 rounds.

Not surprised. It looks absurdly over-engineered, and in my experience narrow channels and complex "labyrinths" do little good. Are there any "Rube Goldberg" designs out there that actually work well?

I bet this helical folded design would be great on aircraft with large caliber weapons.
A vehicle mounted 25mm would benefit as would the imaging equipment if the thermal
qualities are true.
I'm in awe that they got it to work as well as they did.It is a bit busy for the laymen but
could see this technology in the military for mounted weapons after its been developed.

Too heavy for aircraft cannon, but ground-based, sure. The added weight wouldn't cause a tank or APC any problem.

Looks like it passed the point of diminished returns but nails proof of concept.

Holy fucking hell no! I work with space bound multi-stage rockets and they arent this complicated!!
