    Well, there is weight and coating. Polymer pistols tend to be hard on the frames with extra weight up front, so Ti or similar is worth it. On a LG, that's not much of an issue to the civilian shooter. Good ceramic coatings will increase the life of your internals, so...

    Just depends on how much you plan to use it and what you have to spend.

    Gomer, IIRC, NV is extremely ClassIII friendly.

    For a Ti can with ceramic coated baffle(s), I wouldn't pay more than $600 for one. If I'm paying $900, it better include the transfer tax and a few hundred rounds of ammo.

    I haven't heard of a civilian wearing out an aluminum alloy can on a pistol. Maybe it's like Fight Club and they don't talk about it.

    I agree with you, but that is more than a $400 premium.

    People with nice toys like that aren't abusers, in general, shooting FA or 1K SA through one. OTOH, I view that like my spare parts box- I want the ability and/or parts to maintain my high $$ tools well into the next generation.

    Oregon, "Portland Oregon gun friendly"

    I hate to pop someone's bubble but Oregon not just the Portland Metro area but Western Oregon in general is anything but gun friendly. They're not as bad as a lot of other places but they are not in reality gun friendly. The reason being that we have been invaded by the Californians who endeavor to make is nothing but a northern County of San Francisco.
    As a retired gunsmith I would not call Reagan friendly towards guns but they are not unfriendly at this point in time there almost neutral but leaning to the left.

    AS I understand it the washer acts as a sound buffer in conjunction with the 'fuzz' inside the can. In WA state where I am suppressors are now legal for regular guys like me providing I put in the paperwork.
    -------------------------
    Is the Rogue River area of Oregon still gun friendly? Back in the 80s that part of Oregon was Survivalist&Gun friendly.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Yeah...so?

    Suppressors are more popular now than they ever have been.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I did not find Portland Metro real gun friendly even when when I was a LEO but central and southern Oregon is super

    I've never thought much about suppressors before, or had much interest in them, but now you have me curious, HotGuns. I went ahead and read through this thread.

    I see that you have made suppressors. What are the design elements in something like this? Is there a site someplace I can go to that has some very basic info for someone who is a complete suppressor neophyte, where I might be able to see how the various models go about doing what they do?

    I've been a machinist for 15 years, but I've never done ANY gun work. It seems like a project like this could actually be a little interesting.

    Any suggestions you might make to help me educate myself before I take the shotgun approach of a Google search?
