First hog with the FLIR PTS233. I froze in the heat of the moment and forgot to push record.



She went down like a ton of bricks, but got back up and ran. You can see the shot placement just above and towards the end of the suppressor. I would have thought she was done for the count, but she ran about 60 yards. Was the shot too low and forward to break the neck? I was shooting 110 grain Barnes Tac Tx and the shot was taken at 20 yards. She appeared to be very pregnant.

What kind of can is that? Looks like polished stainless. Maybe just the picture??

Titanium. It's a form 1 build I did, but haven't had it Ceracoated yet. Components were Diversified Machine and Z Machine Worx. Works great, but not sure I'd do another form one. It actually out performs my factory GemTech can.

The amount of reading/research I did was very time consuming and frankly overwhelming.. Fortunately I found a lot of help on several Form 1 boards/forums. The challenge is you have to sift through those who knew their stuff vs. those who thought they knew their stuff. Additionally, the design, measurements and small amount of machining I did took quite a while. The way I interpreted the law was I couldnít do R&D to perfect the final product. I had one chance to get it right and thatís why it took so much time in the research, planning and build phases. In the end this suppressor does an excellent job, but only saved me about $300.00. The fun part was the pucker factor when test firing. I was praying that I drilled all the holes concentric with the rudimentary tools I had available. I will say I had a huge sense of relief when it didnít explode while test firing. Iím glad I did it because it challenged me, but the process didnít save me a ton of money, or time at the end of the day.

Next time have a friend over for some beer, and while youíre here, wanna shoot this thing.....

Was curious about ďr+dĒ. Thatís why I was asking . I was told same thing, build it once, no changing. But it doesnít make sense in my small brain, why canít you modify to improve?? What does it matter? Also shocking that you found experts on internet, that may not have know what theyíre talking about.... anyway good job, I hope Iím able to follow through and do it one day
