General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

May not crush perfectly flat, and cause bore concentricity issues.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Replace with a shim kit and you will be good to go.

you didn't use google, you used the built-in search?

P.S. It's not just crush washers that may cause cocentricity issues. Many use washers successfully but some claim any washer has the potential to make a can uneven.
