    The nocturnal ones here are geckos. Little green crunchy dog snacks.

    Vincent, are you able to give us another view of your "modern" silencer taken from a slightly different angle in order to give more of a cross section view, please?

    The side shot will be just a side view of a round solid stock. They CNC them from the top and it's all done.

    It's the shape/profile of the innards at the muzzle end which I'm interested in.

    You can see the little disrupters at the back, they're just mirrored at the front. All done by a CNC machining from above in one session. All just mirrors of the last one.

    You should enjoy this one...watch closely...

    Regards, Jim

    Itís a second version Gemtech Mist (no vent port in the barrel). Itís unbelievably quiet. I can sit on the couch in my living room and shoot through the open backdoor at a target in the garden. The only sound is bullet hitting the target. My wife sitting at her desk directly above me in the same room doesnít hear a thing as long as I use a brass catcher or hold the bolt closed. She can hear a spent case if it hits the wood floor, but not the shots.

    Not to be too alarmist, but I'd be a bit concerned about shooting too many rounds; the gas isn't all that healthy.

    Ok thanks Jim. The suppressor has come a long way from the "washer" baffles.

    I can take some pictures next time I clean it. Or you can google “Gemtech Mist.” There are lots of pictures. They make a full line of “G-Core” suppressors, GM22 is the .22 pistol suppressor, GM9 = 9mm, GM45…. Etc.. They pretty much cover all the common calibers. The pistol suppressors are good, but the Mist beats the pants off the GM22. The GMT-300BLK is also extremely good. You really need a dedicated gun for it if you want to get the most out of it.

    In terms of size and weight suppressors have come a long way. However, you can get very good results with shaped washers, shaped freeze plugs, etc. They will be bulky and heavy, but they can be just as quiet as commercially made suppressors at a fraction of the cost. The tax to the gov is the same for the transfer of a commercial suppressor or a form 1 stamp to make your own, $200. The transfer takes about 8 months. If you use the Gov’s online E-forms for a form 1 (make your own) it only takes 30 to 60 days to get approval via email.

    You are absolutely correct, Merle. That’s why it’s very important to minimize the blowback gas as much as possible with semi-auto’s and machineguns. The suppressor has to be designed to minimize blowback gas and the gun has to be designed or modified to work with the suppressor.
    Suppressors can also dramatically increase the speed the bolt travels back at. In some cases, it can damage the gun and be dangerous if not addressed.
    In the movies people just screw a suppressor on and the gun becomes quiet as a church mouse fart. There’s a bit more to it in the real world.
