Machining Suppressors

While I was on other business, I happened to be in the presence of a suppressor manufacturing operation. It occurred to me that many of you might not have ever seen how this works. I am by no means an expert on the “black art of silence”, but every suppressor I have ever seen is fundamentally the same.

The general differences are materials and assembly. Put another way, pistols are the same way. Glock and 1911’s have more in common than not. Hopefully you understand what I am trying to say.

So enjoy the pics. The owner was very kind to give us the royal treatment.
