Absolutely no reason to get the jig. A practiced hand can do well with the jig and a hand drill, but some people still don't end up with centered holes. Absolutely use the lathe if you have the option. Make your first hole through small enough to miss the clip as they try to pull the drill off center. Then drill to the size you want.Sorry for the barrage of questions. I assume the 45 drill fixture will work with the brandywine SS and Ti cones? And lastly, if I have a lathe is there any reason to get the fixture?
Waiting on caps to be finalized. That's where it stands@padom so do I understand that the Ti 30cal cups are about ready to order from Brandywine? Also I’m confused on the status of the entrance/exit caps. I know this shutdown has slowed things down for them, just wondering where we stand on getting these ordered to finish my 2 cans.
Thank you for all your work getting these sourced in Ti padom!
Thanks!There was an update in the other thread that SS were going out or gone out and Ti are being worked on next.
Sorry to ping you on an old post, but did you go with their kit as configured? So 1 stainless and 9 aluminum? Any recommendations? You specifically have intrigued me because I was 100% set on buying a obsidian 45 because of how quiet it is. But these new quietbore kits seem to be really good.Well my Rugged 45 and QB 45 are identical sound wise side by side. I shoot Xtreme 165gr with 3.5gr VV N340...stupid quite and hits like sledge on steel. I haven't found anything quieter
Here my son shooting my AR9 with the 165gr Xtreme's. Stupid quite, accurate. So much fun to shoot
Yea the new 9mm piston booster end cap I've been waiting for from Preston for what 9 months now. No reply@padom I’ve got a question about swapping between the .45 piston and 9mm piston. I ordered the QB tube, .45 piston and booster assembly, and those look like they work great (still waiting on the Ti cups so I don’t know for sure), but then I decided I’d like to be able to shoot it on my 9mm.
I ordered the 9mm piston for my thread pitch, and when I dropped it in the booster housing, it wobbles all over the place (example). Is there another part I’m missing? There’s no way I’d shoot that as-is...
Hate to revive a dead thread but was there ever any mass interest in a titanium cup set for the 9mm kit? I would love to get my hands on some. And thanks for all of the great info in this thread. It was very helpful for me with my first form 1 can.Yea the new 9mm piston booster end cap I've been waiting for from Preston for what 9 months now. No reply
Yep people complaining they haven't received them and telling me I should go hunt these guys down so I texted the owner and he said im refunding all the orders.
