I am getting ready to get a make a homemade suppressor and I need a couple questions answered by a member on here before I even begin to start on the form so I know what I'm getting into.

He made this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GbjXvH7xJA

Member name is PTK. His member page here: http://www.thehighroad.org/member.php?u=45502

It looks like he was on a month ago. Anybody have any contact with him, thanks.

I really only need the design of the baffles used in his can if that is available by anybody here with first hand knowledge.

That's the best part of making your own.. using your own ideas and tweaking to fit what you want, instead of just copying someone else. Why would you need someone's baffle design before starting the form? There is no place to list it on there...

Since he used K baffles, your best bet would be to research K baffles, and see what fits what you want.

your Form 1 will have the caliber, length, model and serial number on it. its all your call since you are creating it. Form 1, like stated above, has nothing to do with the internal design of the baffles.

BUT... be sure you have the APPROVED Form 1 before you start building... even pieces of the can. Constructive intent....

Nevermind. Came to a deadend. I visited a local machine shop and they are telling me it will be too hard to thread a ruger 10/22 tapered barrel, a buckmark slab side barrel and a CZ452 tapered barrel.
Then to machine some parts for the suppressor would be over $400. I'm better off just buying the things including the threaded barrels.

Yeah, unless you build it your self you are better off buying one from a production line vs. custom make 1 unit.

Not hard at all, you will loose your front sight though, unless you want to have it moved back but the cost for that would be pretty high. I have had customers bring me several 10/22 barrels this year, last one left about a month ago. The CZ barrel would be pretty easy as well, the slab side *could* be done (hey with the right amount of money anything is possible).

Theres no "could" about it. If you have the right setup, its too easy

Yep. Would personally rather not pay a $200 tax for an adaptor to use old oil cans

You just need to right machine shop. For much less than the cost of a typical threaded barrel upper I had my Ruger 22/45 threaded and the the front sight set back at my local shop.

I had this company do my Ruger 10/22 take down and keep the sight for less than the price of the majority of threaded replacement barrels.

I am exceedingly pleased.

Not hard at all, you will loose your front sight though, unless you want to have it moved back but the cost for that would be pretty high.

I paid $135 to preserve my sight, that is an additional $8-, but was worth it to me. My after market barrel for my non-take down 10/22 cost 115.00, I think they are a little more than that now.

I also have a Ruger 10/22 that I put a Tactical Innovations barrel that I am very pleased with.

All machinist and machine shops are not created equal, nor are many capable of meeting your needs when it comes to the machine work necessary for a can.

Its not difficult at all to move the front sight back. If you cant do that, you surely have no business threading barrels. No reason at all to lose the sight

These guys are a very good reference when wanting to build your own.

Not to mention that if the shop doesn't have an 07/C2 they can't legally machine suppressor parts anyway.

7.4.6 Marking silencer parts. Some FFLs/SOTs assemble silencers, for subsequent sale, from parts
acquired from their contractors (NOTE: this activity is the “manufacture” of NFA firearms requiring the
assembler and the contractor to qualify as manufacturers under the GCA and the NFA). Under these
circumstances, ATF takes the position that contractors are not required to place identifying markings on
silencer parts. They may, however, place an assembler’s markings on these parts if the assembler so
desires. It should also be noted that these contractors are not required to register the parts they produce
by filing Forms 2, nor are they required to obtain approved Forms 3 to transfer the parts to assemblers.
