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.
