I have a 9mm Palmetto armory ar15. I've ordered a 10.5" barrel for it that I'm going to permanently attach my 6 1/2" form 1 suppressor to. The suppress is all Titanium. I can easily tack weld a barrel nut to make the threaded cap permanent. But now I need to make the tube permanently attached to the threaded cap. I was wondering if riveting it would satisfy the requirements since titanium is such a pain to braze or weld. Any suggestions or opinions?

No that doesn't meet the requirement.

I recommend not welding silencers onto barrels. I wish I never had.

On a more helpfull note. You can pin the tube to the endcap, then weld over the pin. Thats what I did. No titanium welding required.

Both of the end caps, tube and baffles are titanium. I could pin, but since everything is titanium, I can't weld over the pin and have the weld hold to the titanium. I may have to find a shop that can braze titanium for me. Once I do, can I leave the far end cap removable to be able to remove and clean the baffle stack? The tube and threaded cap would be permanently attached. Thanks for the quick reply!

Just find an FFL that can weld titanium. Its not rocket science. Have them weld the tube to the cap, and pin the cap to the barrel.

Ti is not difficult to weld at all. The challenge is maintaining an inert atmosphere so as not to oxidize the metal in the HAZ. But for TIG welding a pin, you HAZ is tiny, not enough to worry about IMO.

Don't try to braze, though. Too much HAZ.

High temp silver soldier would work, but unless SBRs are illegal in your state it really isn't worth it.

Brazing titanium will weaken it unless you did it in the absence of oxygen somehow. You couldn't use a torch or any flame

The flux used in the brazing process will protect the joint from oxidation. Just don't get the metal anywhere near bright cherry or the flux will start to burn off.

Personally, I'd rather pin/weld than silver solder. Much easier when it comes to removal time.

Buy a long handguard and pin that. I've seen 10/22s with short barrels with affixed suppressor shrouds that don't require stamps because the shroud is permanently affixed and contributes to the OAL
