Welrod X-Rays

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.

Welrod X-Rays

Post by Enfield577 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 2:40 am

Hi Guys,

Still playing with my new toy, can't get the front end cap off so got some X-Rays done to see condition of can/tube, all looks quite good.

The X-Rays came out nice an clear and can even see the tiny trigger spring, had to do a lsh up to get it on here though. Set the PC screen to white, taped on the films and photographed, Kiwi ingenuity ha ha

Cool radiograph. To be complete, you need another view at 90 degrees from that one (would require supporting the gun with pads). Edit: sorry, didn't see the second view, ignore me!
I've X-rayed a fair amount of "stuff" in my time and these things are always of interest to me!

Thank you for posting the X-rays, Enfield. I enjoyed seeing them, and also reading your other threadviewtopic.php?f=10&t=139203 on the topic.

I wasn't aware of these before your thread, and I've enjoyed learning a bit about them. (And sharing in your excitement a bit.)

It's still the weekend where I am, so I'll wish you all a happy one!

Tom.

You are most welcome, that is half the fun of these sites seeing stuff that you otherwise would not.

All the best

Revisiting my DOA, Frankford Arsenal Report R-1896, August 1968,
starting on p. 58 was a report of their testing a .32 & 9mm Silenced-Welrod Pistols.


P. 65, Db results Primary initiation -112 db
Blow-by Exit -118 db
Bleed Hole Blow-by -122 db


for 9mm the numbers are 111; 119, 124 db.

Thought you might find these data interesting.


Best.
