    Default have a sealed silencer? want it opened?

    I dont know if any of you other NFA folks on here have an old sealed suppressor, but if you havent seen what the inside of a sealed can looks like after a few thousand rounds here ya go!

    these are [span style='font-style: italic;'][span style='font-weight: bold;']my [/span][/span]swr spectre baffles after about 400 rounds. what i am showing in the picture is the copper antiseize. notice the fouling. the next pic shows how easy the fouling is wiped off, but only from the outside baffle area. near the bullet path, the c5a is quickly burned away, and you are left with the same old lead deposits. luckily, its stainless, so i just toss them in the dip.








    the pics below belong to john titsworth from silencer research as noted in the picture. i am in no way taking credit for his work, as i found the pics on the internet in the public domain.

    here is the link to where said pics came from

    Norrell Custom Can









    so basically, eventually the cans will fill up an no longer be a suppressor.

    I have started a group buy over on silencertalk, if you are interested, let me know!

    this is basically what rotary broaching will do, which is how the new endcap will be removed


    and a video of what rotary broaching is all about



    so basically this is what SRI is offering:

    -send in your sealed/loud can
    -they turn your non-serviceable suppressor into a suppressor that can be opened and serviced by you
    -they remove old endcap in a lathe.
    -they fabricate new endcap (with the rotary broach hex feature) this will look nicer, and you wont loose volume inside the can as opposed to some other solutions for the removable endcap feature.
    -they return your can to you, and now you have a much more versatile product.

    Thumbs up

    Very good info. Thank you.. I want a can real bad. But the old lady said if I buy anything ANYTHING related too guns, she is going too split the back of my head open with an axe while I am on the computer.
    Even the UPS driver, who I know, spit at me last time he was here.
    I said what the hell is that for?

    Well, the course of action is obvious.

    You need to move your computer desk so your back is against the wall.

    4th, you're going about it all wrong. A suppressor isn't a "gun item", its a "medical item". The suppressor don't make a gun work any better, does it? No, it protects your hearing! Hell, get your ear doc to prescribe them for all yer guns and see if Medicare will reimburse you. My parents got two of them power chairs for free from Medicare, so if they will drop $10 grand that easy, a few hundred apiece for some hearing protection oughta be easy.

    Man, that rotary broach is cool!

    Talking Good thinking.

    I will set up a mirror like those ATM machines too watch my back.
    When the old lady comes home. She is like an Apache Indian tracking a deer.
    First thing she does is look in the dirt driveway for UPS tire tracks. Oh she can spot them.
    When the truck leaves, I take some brush and sweep them away.
    Otherwise I meet the truck at the end of the road.
    Oh yeah. I got here fooled. Haa haaaa.

    Interesting option to consider. I've been told at the local fun show that there is no reason for a can to be disassembled. Never understood why someone would say that?!
