.22 Suppressor Upgrade.

A few years ago, I bought a used Coastal P22 suppressor. It wasn’t supposed to be user serviceable, but after time, it kind of jailbroke itself. The baffles were of a very simple washer-spacer washer-spacer design. Truthfully, the performance of the thing wasn’t even close to more modern stuff, like my Outback II-D.

I decided to see what could be done about upgrading it and having a more modern baffle stack, or even a mono-core.
My friend Chuck from LRM Technologies told me “No problem” and the old girl was on its way.

Fast forward to a few days ago, when I received it back.

I haven’t had much time to shoot it yet, but so far the performance looks to be promising.

    So because the tube was reused, did you have to get a new stamp?

  2. That is correct Jason. An FFL with the right SOT can re-core a suppressor. The tube is the registered part of the suppressor, and if it is reused, no additional taxes are due.
