Ben owns a 597, one of my favorite rifles, and has asked that I craft him a super-quiet over-barrel suppressor.
Specs: Barrel threaded 1/2′ unf x 20 tpi. Over-barrel suppressor 34mm diameter, over-barrel to the stock, 185mm forward of stock, finished in mil-spec grade anodized rich black. I will also do some trigger mods for free.
