Hi. Welcome, and thank you for viewing this page. Kevin’s’s suppressor was one of my very first center-fire suppressor attempts, and I have to admit, the spacer/washer internal suppression system was not as strong or effective as it would be now. However, as you view further/future suppressor projects – you will see a much better and more effective suppression system, either mono-core (with around 5 internal suppression chambers) that is more suited to semi-auto rapid fire center-fire calibers, or full threaded and take apart using the traditional suppressor chamber and cone shaped washers, with up to 30 internal suppression chambers for maximum noise suppression.
A big advance was also in April 2014 when I upgraded all my engineering equipment, allowing a precision lathe dedicated to barrel threading only, as well two additional much larger lathes that are dedicated to producing hand-crafted fully threaded and take apart suppressors for all calibers and rifles. This original project for Kevin was from before that time.
Below are some more recent suppressor projects
When it comes to the products most other gun-smiths and engineers have to offer, I am often reminded of Henry Ford’s advertising for his original production run of Model T Ford automobiles, “Any color you want, so long as it is black!”

Below: I love the different mediums and materials of carbon-fibre, alloy, ceramic and anodizing, and wanted to make something very special, that works even better than it looks. Click photo to enter project in new page.
Below: I’ve been very ill this year. Back on steroids and felling (a bit) better, so wanted to make something very special for my rim-fire rifles. Click photo below to enter page in new tab.

Below: I always like to have one of my own projects on the go, as I work with customers to design and complete their own projects. For the last few months I’ve been playing with some ideas for my AR15 .223. I’ve made the suppressor with carbon-fibre wrap – to match the shoulder stock, but also have done some cool custom anodizing and hand-etched graphics that can be seen if the carbon-fibre sleeve is removed. Note: Machine-gun string of bullets is for display only, although it is actually quite easy to adapt any AR15 to full auto. Click photo below to enter project in new tab.
Below: Gareth and I have been working on his AK47 for a couple of years, as he brings it back for more modifications and improvements. This has been a fun and very successful project. Click photo to enter project in new tab.
Below: Having bought several CO2 revovlers over the decades, this 1.1 Smith & Wesson replica has got to be the best I have owned. Click photo to enter page in new tab.
Below: Lorne and I have completed several projects over the years, and his latest project is a ‘first’ for me. Lorne has provided the plans for me to build him two brass cannon barrels. Click photo below to enter project in new tab.
Below: I am a passionate gun collector, and whereas I have many firearms, I also collect replica and blank-firing pistols and rifles. There is another genre of guns that I enjoy that includes authentic replicas and sport. This is the sport and collection of airsoft, and allows ownership of weapons that would normally be restricted, and yet are built, fire and strip-down the same as the original.

Below is an absolutely beautiful M&P compact pistol silencer project. Click photo below to enter project in new tab.
Below: Sam has asked me to make the smallest effective muzzle-brake for his 22-250 center-fire. This was a new design construction, and very effective. Click photo to enter page in new tab.
Below: I’ve made several suppressors for Dave, and he takes great delight in the awesome response he gets from his mates when he shows them off. This is our latest project, a .308 Ruger. Nice Spiker, Dave! Click photo to enter page in new tab.
Below: I’ve made several suppressors for Sam over the years, and he normally likes them as small and compact as possible. The latest project was his AR15 .300 Cal Blackout. Click photo to enter project in new tab.
Below: Original project for Kevin
Kevin asked that I make him a custom over-barrel suppressor for his 30-06, that can also be used on his .22lr.
I will make the suppressor to be able to withstand the immense ballistics of the 30-06, and also make an additional over-barrel synthetic spacer that can be installed to make the suppressor to work perfectly on Kevin’s .22lr as well.
Left: Two examples of engineering art and precision in Kevin’s over-barrel suppressor.
Right: Showing the opposite side of the mounting unit that screws onto the rifle – with through-flow porting, and the smaller item that will be located at the muzzle end of the suppressor.
Left: Black end-cap with separate ported retaining unit.
Right: Suppressor finished, with .22lr adapter and optional suppressor shroud.
Due to the immense ballistics of the 30-06, I have made the over-barrel sealing unit out of alloy, and this will require the barrel to be wrapped with thread-tape where it clamps over the taper, to prevent scratching the barrel.
I have made the adapter for the .22lr to be 17.65mm diameter. This is smaller than the diameter of the barrel, and will require this synthetic unit to be carefully warmed in either hot water or with a heat-gun / hair dryer – so that it can be easily pressed over the barrel.
