There is not many times in the the life of a rifle that it needs to be stripped to that level and if it needs to be done the silver solder can be melted the threaded piece removed and a new piece remade for the rifle.I have no problem with Tornado Techs System in fact I know they do great work and would recommend them. I just don't like a adapter for a suppressor its a double whammy on threads coming loose and possible misalignment of the can plus I am a accuracy nut.Most of my clients agree this is a good thing. </div></div>
In the life of a pistol though, you need to remove the barrel to do any kind of cleaning. I like that idea of silver soldering the extension on, but I would not want the 1/2" threads to be part of that extension, it would be similar to the tornado setup, but the adapter would HAVE to locate on the end of the threads since there is no shoulder. And machining a square shoulder on the inside diameter of a 10mm ID is going to be tricky with the tooling I have at my disposal. I dont think I would necessarily trust boring a hole with an endmill...
Guess I can give it a shot and see if it works. Ill put an indicator on there with the can on to make sure its right down the pipe.
I figured the tornado setup was for a dedicated 5.7 can, but this setup is going to be used with a TBAC 22L-1 so it needs to have 1/2 threads.
