Form 1 was submitted on 9/15/19 so it’s going to be about another month.I can't remember if you said that you received your stamp yet, but I am really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this after you have it drilled and have some rounds down range. This is obviously not a good candidate for hunting, but it would probably work just fine for a bench rifle.
I did remove 0.030” off the wall of the baffles from the ID. The wall thickness started out at 0.096”. I left a section of the wall alone since each baffle seems to indicate from the inner diameter on the next baffle it rests on.
Removing this amount of material from each baffle resulted in a total reduction of 0.142lbs. This might not seem like much but it was exactly the same weight as one entire baffle before removing material. So it was like removing one baffle and ended up being an 8% reduction. I’m guessing drilling holes in the baffles and end cap will net another 0.200-0.300 lbs. so I’m getting closer to 1.5lbs. It’s hard to see the step of material I left at the original wall thickness but here’s a photo anyway.
