Re: silencer plans

My first suppressor used K baffles and it worked well but through trial and error I have found that the K baffles are heavy and not as effecient as cones for high power rifles , most of the suppressors you see with K's are pistol suppressors. Quick Silver Manufacturing uses a modified K in their all titanium suppressors and they do work but they also use a very tight bore which make the suppressor more effecient.
the K- baffles I made came out great but they are very labor intensive to make correctly compaired to a cone




I'll try and see wher in this waste land of a computer I have stored some pattents of several differant suppressors , to give you a better idea of who is using what.
What type of rifle are you wanting to suppress and what are the wants and needs for your suppressor , I meen are you trying to keep is as compact and light as possible or is it going on a weapon that would be hauled very far

Re: silencer plans

Theirs alot of guys that have used PVC to make some rimfire suppressors , most of the centerfire pistol and rimfire cans are aluminum and pretty thin to boot so as long as you diden't get crazy trying to trim weight then PVC should work fine.

The trouble comes from guy trying to make a suppressor on their work bench with a hand drill and other hand tools and not being able to get the bore of the suppressor aligned with the muzzle threads thus causing bullet strikes in the suppressor and things go realy wrong from their
