Hi @phillihp23, that is quite the collection you have there... 300 Blackout / 300 Whisper has a .30 cal Bore Dimension with a .223 Remington/5.56 NATO case necked up to .30 cal and trimmed down to the proper length (actually trimmed then sized...see your reloading manual)... Any .30 cal Bore Brush will work while you would use a .223/5.56 chamber brush...

oh mommy. my tax stamp is out for my Dead Air silencer that I'm gong to use for my home defense rifle.

Sionics 11.5 inch "pistol" with a 9.5 inch rail on it and a Geissele SSA fire control group in it. Got the their extra low gas pressure upper and when the dead air gets the stamp approval should be dead silent. It's not in the pic, but I have a Aimpoint H2 micro on it as well.

It is not on our sale list... but the dB reduction is not that good either.

Silencers are really and truly for hearing protection. I don't need a silencer for attacking anything... but it sure is nice to not have to wear ear plugs or ear muffs when shooting now.

agreed. it's not like the movies where you just hear the "click click" of the action and nothing else. a good silencer just muffles it enough to where you don't blow your eardrums out. The ONLY time I've ever gotten truly "silent" actions like the movies were on a .22lr silenced, as well as a .223 rifle that I specifically loaded powder puff loads so that it basically turned the rifle into a bolt action. you heard the bolt cycle and that was it. but it was pretty useless as a rifle outside of a test gun and the ballistics weren't that hot with it loaded that soft

@Sonnie what size bore brush do you use on the 300BLK ?

you can use any .30 cal snake or brush... same dimensional width. I usually use the Otis .30 cal cleaning kit for my 300 blk guns

It took 290 or more days for mine to clear. They cleared all four in a batch. The most recent filed was only like 60 days. My SBR is actually filed under the new e-file form4 process. I’m on day 2….hoping for a 45 day clear :bigsmile:. More likely gonna be closer to 75-90 days. I’m gonna have my first AK as soon as that clears my mandatory 10 day cool off. Started thinking about what might be my options for silencing it…have a CNC folder on order for it. And waiting until the bone steel upper/lower kit is in stock again to order.

nice, I need to do a new e-file form 4 for a new one. Just haven't gotten around to it yet...

and as a RABID AK owner with 15 AK's (and have owned many more).... you have piqued my interest as you are getting your first. What did you choose as your first one?

oh thank God. I had this nervous fear after hitting submit that you had gotten suckered into a garbage RAS47, Century VSKA, or Riley Defense AK and I'd have to wince behind my keyboard and politely say "ooooh, nice, hope it works out for you" instead of screaming "DON'T BUY THAT GARBAGE!!!!" lol.

The Z-paps are good guns. I have a couple of those new ones....a kit build from a battlefield pickup M70b1 from the 1990s, and 2 Kit built M72 RPKs (I have a weakness for yugos) and an older N-pap underfolder lol.

Ya I did some homework before I dove in LoL. I shot my first AK last weekend. It was a wire folder. Shot like a dream…felt about like shooting a 223. Not sure why so many people cry about the kick. It did have a nice vertical grip and break on it.

they're not super kicky usually, but it all depends on the gas port size. AK's are naturally over gassed to compensate for environmental issues and to be super reliable, but I have seen some that come with toilet bowls for a gas port and it takes an adjustable gas block addition or a brake to make it manageable. I have a Polish WBP fox that is SUPER gassy. Like you have to grip it HARD to your shoulder to keept it from smashing said shoulder. A good brake makes all the difference in teh world though. It makes that gun feel normal, and that same brake will make a "normally" gassed AK feel like it's 223 like you felt.

That’s kinda why i am debating whether I should go the silencer way or just stay with a good break. If they already gassy they only gonna get worse with a can. Ya my buddy has a nice 3” break like 4 port. He partially needed it because it’s only a 14” barrel and welding it on made it so he could have the wire folder and not classify as a SBR.

That's where a KNS adjustable gas piston comes into play. Almost a necessity for a suppressed AK

Just tell me you ain’t one of those guys buying $100 bakelite mags?

LOL!! nooooooo, I sold all my bakelites for $130 a pop during peak pandemic to fools willing to pay for them. I got mine oldschool at $35 or less.

I have the mag stash from hell though. 248 AK mags of varying styles and country of origin... it's an addiction
