Also, once y'all get a can it is good to check for concentricity. Check rods are handy for that. Companies sell pre made ones.

I made my own with McMaster Carr

Here's 223, 308 cal, and 36 cal (9mm)

I think Iíll pass on sticking a tool steel rod down the bore of my rifles.

You really think that gently easing a steel rod down the barrel is gonna cause more damage than launching a copper bullet at 3000FPS??

It's cheap insurance. Especially if you are using a can with a QD system.

All the kiosk does is fatter your info remotely for SS. Photos and prints. Has nothing to do with method of file unless they changed something recently.

Yeah I’ve been told that some have gotten theirs within 90 days. Others it has taken almost a year. Wondering which way is faster.

Buy two and send one paper and one eForms...that way you will get one back the fastest either way.

My FFL runs them on a few of his personal firearms. He says all of the hype is legit.

Haven't heard one person say anything about solvent traps. Make your own and then register it as you would the store bought cans. They work just as well IMHO. You can make one yourself with bought parts for around 250-350 maybe even cheaper depending on what you use.

I think the ATF and what they served down on that company selling them has everyone pretty quite at the moment.

Yes. Copper is soft, steel is not. I know you are a gun guy, surely you know that copper doesnít hurt a barrel other than maybe fouling but that is easily removed.

I would do it with a brass rod or maybe aluminum. Something softer then my steel rifle barrel.

I have one. Goes up to .338, full auto rated. It gets my 556 ar down to a level that you can shoot it without ear protection but itís still loud. Seems well made. The reflex mount going back over the barrel is cool and doesnít add to the length.

Iím a big fan of Swfa in Midlothian. The guys over there will call you by name every time you walk in the door. Theyíll take your back if you get a bad product. They also will run you through the trust and tax stamp process. I canít say enough good stuff about those guys.
