Pete, if you are wanting to try steps I can send you a bunch of titanium valve spring retainers to try. We can hash out trade later

All my reading about titanium makes me want to avoid it for baffles.

I can weld and machine 316. I just cant see any reason to get all fancy.
4 baffles, some spacers, end caps, out tube. 30 cal can that can be taken apart. Pretty straight forward to build. Think I can sell them for 450.

On the .22 I have redesigned the monocore. Tube, end cap, monocore all anodized alum, 9black or OD green) Then the muzzle mount and blast chamber are stainless. going to weigh 5-55.oz. Not super light weight but respectable. Maybe consider it more of a rifle can than a pistol. 150-175$.

Anyway, I don't see mass producing these, but a couple here and there. If I can sell a couple will then buy a DRO for the lathe.

Pistols are all over the place but generally .435

My 22 tubes are 1x6
My muzzle end are .5x1dial stainless rod. Internal threaded .5x28 and externally .92x32

I want to make a custom bit that will create a u shaped channel between these two areas to remove weight and the OD thread only needs to be .25 so the end cap may end up looking like a T

Jumping to 30.
Just got the materials in. Will see how much I can get done this weekend.

Was chatting with a friend the other night and he thinks I should scale up the mono core. 1.75 alum rod and 1.5 forstner bits.

Figured I would look at some commercial offerings.

First up is the mite. Mount is on the right of tube. it is stainless and looks to be .5. Not sure how it's fixed to the alum end cap.
Baffles alum, with blast stainless blast baffle at far left



Sparrow. One piece mount and baffle stack. Honestly don't know if alum or what


Element. Mount is on upper right. Pretty thick.


Element, Sparrow, Wraith, Pilot, Mite
Wraith and Pilot do not come apart
I am really thinking about cutting the ends off, and making my own end caps for them.

To my ear the Element is the quietest, the rest are all the same. Then mine, just a tiny bit louder. Don't need ear plugs for any of them. P22 host, fired in the garage with the doors closed.Will try out a different baffle design and see how that does.

This is the completed baffle.


This last can I made is 5.5"x.985 and weighs 5.0oz. I am very happy with those physical dimensions. I went ahead and measured of the COTS cans.

Mite is 5.25x1.04 4.1oz
Wraith is 5.5x1.26 6.7oz
Pilot 5.25x.998 5.1oz
Sparrow 5x1.07 6.9oz (the heaviest)
Element 5.5x.985 5.0oz

Thank yall

As I suspected with a 1" dia tube there is not a lot of room for varying designs.

I did find an over the barrel design: ( The pic is HUGE )

Same guy also does some ports on the buisness end that I havent seen on most of the commercial suppressors

I'm gonna hafta charge more than I did for this one

I tried doing the side holes first, but they caused the long thru hole to deflect almost 0.010 at the end of the 6.5", so I remade it and did the long hole first on the second one. The ten thou probably wouldn't make any difference, but it wasn't right and it pissed me off.

a couple test runs with my baffles. I decreased the ID by swedging titanium tube into the hole in the titanium retainer "baffles". It works VERY well. I need to do some range video as the impact into the block of wood is like 5X louder than the weapon
