Thread: .22 LR Host / Suppressor Combo

  1. #31
    They were sold by a seller on Form 1 Suppressor BoardsÖ looking for it, seems the forum was removed by the forum host.

    Checked the size chart and note that the seller included with storage/use tipsÖ no name or contact info. I also checked a few of the payment apps that Iíve used, and cannot find anything that has something related to it.

    Sad, being the guy really did a nice job. Confirmed straightness, beveled the edges and added color so they are identified easily. The rods were awesome quality, especially for the price.

    Well (and legitimately) - thanks for trying.

    I see that the Energetic Armament Nyx Mod 2 is available in either a bead blasted bare titanium or black cerakote. Is there any advantage to getting the cerakote? Does it do anything to protect the suppressor? I only have experience with cerakote on handgun slides and I found it wore easily.

    I havenít had time to substantiate this concern Iím about cite (Iíve started/stopped several times). But I donít know how cerakote holds up to Ultrasonic cleaners.

    Iíve started and stopped looking twice over the last day or so then I get distracted by work.

    Cerakote seems to be heavily used as a finish on silencers due to its resiliency to heat.

    Also, to you the internet viewer. How are you guys cleaning your suppressor tubes and end caps?

    Every video Iíve seen hasnít cleaned the end caps of dead air mask or talked about the tube. But it does look like the tube and end caps are dirty? The Baffle stack is unfinished and SS the tube and end caps have either finish or arenít steel.

    A shotgun bore brush seems to be agreeable to clean the tube. But! Thatís the registered component!

    School me P-Forum! I know one of you has my answers!

    Todd Magee brought up ultrasonic cleaners eroding sharp corners (which is interesting) and recommended against putting the tube in an ultrasonic cleaner for that reason.

    Cleaning rod and flash light method worked.

    I could see the suppressor with a flashlight from the bore, but I put a cleaning rod through it and it all looked good.

    Sheís quiet! The 22/45 Mkiv and dead air are awesome! Sheís in NFA jail. I shot about 150-200 rounds through the combo today.

    Iíve got a box of 500 rounds of .22 LR that once Iíve shot that through the mask Iím not shooting it anymore.

    Form went in on 11/30 - itís probably best just to forget about the gun now.

    Giving it to a new shooter today - I found it really instrumental because it helps isolate to the fundamentals and also .22 LR is cheap. I figure this will give years (probably decades) of enjoyment. I need to drift the sights over a little bit more and theyíll be 100% on and I need to get a red dot on it.

    I love it! If I had an easy way to upload images I would. I will later. I am very pleased with how this has turned out thus far.

    I just need a dowel rod, Ultrasonic cleaner, red dot, and mount and that should be it.

    I will say I knew suppressed hosts got dirtier faster - that MKIV is very dirty. I am extremely glad I went forward with the easy to break down and clean MKIV 22/45.

    Now just to forget I bought it.
    God Bless,

    I believe I have found the solution for the tube and end caps.

    https://www.birchwoodcasey.com/produ...-12-gauge.html

    12 Gauge mop and carbon solvent for the suppressor tube. The Mask is a titanium tube and very neutral to chemicals per Maggeeís input. Iím going to go the solvent on the tube versus mechanical scrubbing given itís the registered component in a silencer and scraping will be spotty.

    Iíll find out what the end caps are via support. I figured carbon cleaner on the tube / end caps and 12 gauge mop and then oil lightly, wooden dowel to push the baffles, and then ultrasonic cleaner for the baffles.

    Weíll see how it goes, but that seems to be the best option.
    God Bless,

    Page 4 - first sentence.

    The Mask is ruggedly constructed and machined from a combination of titanium, steel, and aluminum.

    I havenít seen it written. But I bet the endcaps are aluminum. Where else would it be?

    Or their documentation is wrong.

    Only one way to find out. Support email here I come.

    Confirmed with support - end caps are stainless steel. It appears aluminum is not present in the device. ETA: Which indicates the manual is wrong, etc.

    But they said to use solvent on end caps and not ultrasonic. Which is what I planned anyway, but nice to know.
