Re: Large bore suppressor

Tractor oil or fuel filter plus adapter. Not legal but I've seen it done. Replace filter after low mileage. Just kidding. :mrgreen: Legal provided it has been registered as a silencer. I know at least one company sells them this way. I've thought about trying it since it doesn't cost me anything.

Re: Large bore suppressor

I have all the sandman's. I honestly haven't shot my S much. My L on a 300 win mag is pretty darn quiet. I'd get anther Sandman before getting a different brand 338 suppressor. I think dead air is a solid brand. I'd consider the K and S more of a hunting/tactical type can and not super quiet if that...

Re: Gun store owners, please train your staff.

I would not expect any gun shop employee to know anything about antique firearms. It's hard enough keeping up with modern calibers. I expect most gun store employees to know enough about modern guns to sell you a gun, that's it. They should not be asked any questions such as this. Even if they had a...

Re: 45-70 Reloads

Pretty much all of the loads are going to have a lot of space. I haven't used 2400 so I can't coment on that powder in particular. Just go by the book and you should be fine. Or try a more appropriate powder for that caliber.

Re: every step forward seems to get a step or two backwards

It would be a lot easier to get a gun and file the serial number off than to buy a computer and 3D printer then learn how to print parts. I don't get what people are so worked up about. People have been making guns at home for decades. Not to mention most 3D printed guns are completely impractical w...

Re: Breaking News: ATF Is Classifying .50 Cal Bolt Action AR Upp

Is this really that shocking? If you try to buy a stripped bolt action receiver from Brownells it is considered the firearm and must go through an FFL. Because a bolt action may be fired without the stock, the trigger is integral to the barreled action. An AR15 may not be fired without a lower, the...

Re: Breaking News: ATF Is Classifying .50 Cal Bolt Action AR Upp

Makes sense to me. A bolt action receiver is the firearm. Not he wood, plastic, chassis stock. The lower in this case is akin to the stock on a traditional bolt action firearm. The "upper" is a bolt action receiver. Can you take a bolt action AR type upper and use it as the basis of a fir...

Re: Favorite 9mm suppressor host, and can we meet at a range

I have a Gemtec GM9. It's pretty loud with supersonic. I just can't get excited about can's on pistols anymore. Rifles - I'm all about it, pistols not so much. Why would you shoot super 9mm through a suppressed host, when you can use subs. Honestly suppressed rifles don't do it for me, because anyt...

Re: 32NAA

They had a 25 and 32 version using different parent cases. I think at this level of performance you are just splitting hairs. I'd just get a 380 and call it a day. If you want more power/penetration get a 9mm. Pocket guns don't really have enough power in my mind to worry about things like foot poun...

Re: scope mounting torque specs

You are way over thinking things. Just snug them down till they feel good. Everything has a torque spec, do you use a torque wrench on everything? I think very few things are critical, especially on guns. Snug it up and call it a day. You aren't putting together a space shuttle. They just put torque...

Re: Plinking/Varmint Rifle: .22 mag or .17 HMR ?

I absolutely love the 17hmr for prairie dog on a calm day. I've used it for Red Squirrel and sage rats too. Like stated above it doesn't take much wind to blow it around. I only hunt with it on the calm days. I think the ammo availability was better during the ammo craze, you couldn't find much 22ma...

Re: Can a VP9SK handle 150 grain Federal HST 9mm?

As pointed out above ammunition is made to strict specifications. I'm not into the ammo business but I believe they follow SAAMI specs. If your gun is in good condition it can safely shoot all standard 9mm ammo. Re-manufactured ammo is a whole different story. If you want to blow up your gun buy rem...

Re: Remington RP9 9mm Pistol at Palmetto

I still wouldn’t trust it... Remington hasn’t been what it used to be. I've had absolutely awful luck with Remington under Freedom Group. Remington "not being what it used to be" is an understatement. Luckily they have good customer service for when you need to send a gun in 3 times. I st...
