Default Form 1 Suppressor completed!

Just finished my Form 1 can. Turned it on my lathe out of Chrome moly tubing and solid bar. (About $25.) Used a stamp set to put ID info, and did a cold blue. About as simple as possible. Before bluing, I did make one close range test shot against my target berm, and it is .22 long rifle level in my .223 Savage Hog Hunter. Should be even quieter on 2nd shot. Now I need to sight it in and then thread my Savage 17HMR! Only thing I have to do a video is cell phone, so I will have to do that when I have someone shooting with me.

There is a thread on ar15.com in the suppressor section that describes how to make a form 1 suppressor with minimal tools.

My next one I'll turn the baffles on a lathe but I have 2 with modified freeze plugs for baffles and both are very effective.

Made it with plain cones. You would not want to see me in a build along. I use a lathe kind of like the wood carver who was asked how he made his figures, he said "I cut away everything that does not look like what I am carving." I am learning as I go so I break bits, ruin pieces, mess up threads, etc. I did thread my 17HMR yesterday instead of sighting in the .223, so I will now get to sight both of them in with the suppressor today.

Put about 20 rounds of .223 and about the same of 17HMR through the suppressor . No need for hearing protection and groups about an inch in my Savage Hog Hunter which is about what I normally get with the gun. Recoil is less than it was with a muzzle brake. With my Savage 17HMR I shortened the barrel to about 18 inches when I threaded it and groups went from 1 1/4 inches before threading to 1 inch with the suppressor.

Searching threads and found this. I am thinking about making one. I am a machinist and run a small shop on the side at my house and it looks pretty simple to make. Do you have any updates on how well its working? The worst part will be the atf wait....

I am shooting my .223 Savage Hog Hunter and AR15 without hearing protection. Maybe just a touch louder than .22 LR. You will do a nicer job on yours since you actually know how to use a lathe. I also threaded my Savage 17HMR. All three guns shoot more accurately with the suppressor. I didn't use a trust and got approval in about 4 months.

Did ( can ) you do get the legal process started by establishing the serial number then make the supressor while the ATF process drags on? I would assume it must be possible since you cant make it first

How long was your wait on the Form 1? I keep hearing in other screens that the wait on a Form 1 is much less than a Form 4. Any truth to that? Nice work btw.

I efiled last year when it opened back up and I did a paper a couple weeks before that. The efile came back in 11 days from submission. The paper form 1 just came back (about 10mos later)

Yes, but that was when it first opened back up. It’s slower now. Still way faster than paper

What is the process legally to build a form 1?

Where is a good place to find more info on this?

I did a Form 1 a couple months ago. It took about a month and once I received it, I worked with Hunter Rifleworks on the components and the engraving. Also did a Form 1 Sig MCX at the same time. One screw to change from a pistol stock to a rifle stock after approval.
