First I have to state I'm impressed by the wealth of knowledge and engineering brilliance I'm finding in this forum, over the last week I've spent 4-5 hours just reading old posts this is great stuff.
I have no immediate plans to get my form 1 going but down the line but I have a have a couple of ideas I'd love to suppress a .32 tomcat Beretta. The barrel is fixed during firing but has almost no "meat" to be threaded. Has anyone ever had success welding a threaded tube to the muzzle? I could make a 1/2-28 end and knock out a round aluminum "jig" to keep alignment perfect during welding and take it over to a guy who knows how to weld better than I and then turn the welding down if for nothing else just aesthetic purposes. Would this work? The barrel is stationary during firing and we are only talking about a .32 here.
