Took three identical Enfield .45 SC Carbines out to test fire today.
The only real difference was the baffle design.
Each had six baffles.
The guns were mixed around in transport and no effort was made to record which gun had which baffle design in it.
So this was a blind test, I had to pull out a baffle afterward to know which was what design.
One set used the 45º "M" baffles I have used for years.
Another had a set of 60º stepped cone baffles with three steps.
The last set were 60º stepped cone with three equal square steps.
I enlisted the aid of three young guys to fire the guns while I listened, they also acted as an independent jury to confirm the results.
All were happy to shoot my guns and ammo.
I am unsure if I should be pleased or disappointed with the unanimously agreed result.
Best suppression, my original 45º "M" baffle!
Second, the 60º angled stepped cone.
The 60º square stepped cone was a close third.
So now I want to try some modifications to the 60º stepped cone baffles. ( I have several on hand to modify)
Any suggestions to improve the 60º stepped cone?
Goal is to make my product quieter if possible, without having to get too exotic on the baffles.
I may try making the steps a little deeper on the 60º cones.
