Dont waste your money, bought a kit , used a Maglite as the can. I had better success with the freeze plugs. Buy a factory suppressor, save your money and time.

Thanks for the warning. Can you give us more detail?

Good advice. As the "solvent trap" businesses are being shut down by ATF and repeat offender owners of such businesses are being arrested - and remember, these are serious Federal Charges whether or not you think the NFA is legal or not - it's just not worth it. When you buy from a known company you get service and repairs are possible and you get better sound suppression, although I've seen some pretty efficient Form 1 cans but done by people with lathes and milling machines... not with Napa filters or Mag-lights...

It took me about 9 months to get the Form 1, I understand it much faster now but worth waiting. I bought the NTC solvent kit, I had to put the sleeves in a Lathe to hold them steady to drill. They look good fit well but thin. Cots me 84.00 dollars, should have spent that money on a factory can. Did not notice any suppression at a distance of 50 yrds.

Why not just make one from scratch if you have a lathe?

A couple questions for the OP.

What caliber are you shooting through it?

Do you have another suppressor to compare it to?

Sounds like you might be shooting super-sonic rounds through it, and hearing the !CRACK! and as such not noticing the local suppression at the muzzle. Try some subsonics.

nothing wrong with a NAPA filter. Its just a tube. Its what inside that counts...unless its a fat chick.
