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.
