    Suppressors Removing the outer sleeve of a suppressor?

    Thanks for the comments and the PMs...It's an old Templar so no mfg support but it's been a great can for me. Based on some qualified feedback, it appears we have the situation moving forwards and I have been able to remove the sleeve and start the cleaning process.

    Suppressors Removing the outer sleeve of a suppressor?

    Its a center fire suppressor that has 1000's of 22rf rounds through it. Should have been cleaned a long time ago. I thought Kroil would cut it but does not seem to be the case. The screw press in an interesting concept .... any pics of how I might build one of these?

    Suppressors Removing the outer sleeve of a suppressor?

    I have a titianium suppressor that is designed of 3 parts with an internal core, a sleeve and end cap. The cap comes off just fine but I cannot get the sleeve to slide off the core. I have soaked it in Kroil for 2 weeks with no success and am wondering if there is a better product to loosen the...

    Gunsmithing Expert opinion wanted on New barrel freebore (pic)

    So I have looked at a lot of barrels (factory and custom) with my bore scope and this is much more common than people probably think. It is also one of the first things I look at for a barrel that will not shoot. My experience is that barrels that look like this (usually worse) often do not...

    A Clean Miss on a Trophy Animal

    Maybe I missed it but I run a similar load and would need more than 2.5 mils at 500 yards with my rifle using a 100 yd zero. Maybe the range was right but you under dialed?

    PIG saddle and Ball-head ?

    I have an Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod with an 496RC2 ball-head. I would like to get the right ball head so that I can run a PIG saddle. I do not need a "top of the line" set-up, just something that is solid and dependable. Any recommendations?

    Beleiver in AR lapping

    Actually, I think there is a business opportunity here. I am not a machinist but look at all the shops that are "truing" bolt actions and the market options that created. Now consider all the comments on the web about the challenges of making AR10's shoot well.... Kind of wish a shop like LRI...

    Rifle Scopes BC Flip up sizes

    Rob01 - question on this response. For me it was not about the price but the quality of the defender caps. It's not that they are poorly made but it seemed that they were so flexible/stretchy that they do not stay in place well and they slip around and come out of position when they are opened...
