Form-1 TI suppressor new build ideas

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 TI suppressor new build ideas

Post by Stonestrategic » Sun Sep 06, 2020 11:01 am

Hey guys,

Totally new to the idea of building a Form-1 suppressor and need you help with initial ideas.

ATF paperwork prints have been received and awaiting stamp.

This will be used on either a 14.5 or 10.5 556 with a griffin muzzle brake.

I have been looking on diversified machine and super precision concepts and I believe a 1.5 OD with an overall length of 7 will work.

Where I get stuck is the internals and layouts and best practices.

Id love any help.

Stay Rad

Head over to the and sign up.

Do some searching and reading. When you think you have it figured out, or need to ask a question, keep reading.

Instructive and 'humorous' YouTube on how engineers do destructive
testing on cans. You have to love 'red-neck' engineering. :) :)

Seriously, it would be interesting to see a thick acrylic tube
on a .22 rimfire for each of the major rimfires. No guessing
on what design novelties could arise. For example seeing
actual flows through DeadAir
