I suppressed a flintlock

I recently aquired a low-pressure 50-cal suppressor (TiON, Inc. Dragoon 500 QD), but I didn't have any appropriate guns for it. So I bought a new-old-stock Thompson Hawken .50-cal flintlock for it. Shortened the gun by about 8", added new "suppressor height sights", made a pic rail segment for possible extended eye relief optics, and other details.

I live in PA, so I might hunt with it next year in the extended primitive firearms deer season.

If anyone is interested I may share more details and photos.

      gigabased. How good a job does it do would you say? I assume it's just a standard baffle stack so not hard to clean even if bp dirties it faster? Hilarious aesthetic though, love it.

        This will get dirty as absolute frick
        How are you going to load it?
        How are you going to clean it?

        Does it change the loading procedure? Don't the baffles get powder in them?

        Who cares? You clean suppressors either with ultrasonic or dunking them in CLP overnight then shooting them out not like it's some huge deal. Usually they don't need cleaning for thousands of rounds, maybe this thing needs it after a few hundred but again so what, it's a flintlock he's not exactly mag dumping the thing.

        The suppressor is made of entirely 6Al4V ("grade 5") titanium, so corrosion shouldn't be a concern. The suppressor is fully serviceable, just needs a 1/2" square socket wrench to remove the end cap, and then the baffles all knock out the front using a wooden dowel.

        When it is time to clean the suppressor, I will simply soak the parts for a few hours in a mixture of 1:1 mixed hydrogren peroxide and 6% white vinegar. When they come out of the dip, scrub them under running water with a stainless steel brush. Wear gloves to protect your skin from the lead solution.

        There were already big chunky chunks in the expansion chamber from the just 10 rounds I shot. Knocked them loose with a stainless brush and dumped them out the rear.

            Very cool Josh, do show a video of you shooting it one of these days.

            Please post a video of firing it with sound to gif or catbox or something

            based and screencapped

            you should design a half colonial/half modern kit of military gear to wear while shooting this. im talking tri-point hat with nvgs, camo overcoat with titanium buttons. modern cam0 pants, but with fricking clogs or some shit.

            please upload webm of you shooting it soon.

            Here you go. This is the Hornaday Great Plains 385gr bullet over 70gr of FFg.

            I will eventually do a more formal video in the spring. Outside, well lit, with sound... show the laoding procedure, sound pressure testing from multiple points, chronograph, cleaning, etc.. This is just a prelimninary day-one video.

              Aaaand one last video for now. Another SMS-potato-quality video, but the angle shows off the profile of the suppressor better. This time it is a coworker shooting it.

                Yes that's why. You don't need to delead your gun until it has a problem, which should be rare if you're using proper lube and patches. You do need to get the carbon and gunk out every time, and hot soapy water is the best choice. Thus is not off the wall stuff, thus is black powder 101.
                Although it would be interesting to know if the baffles in your can pick up significant lead fouling with the BP charges. Don't clean it for like 10 shots and make an inspection, post results

                Here is baffle picture 1 of 2. There are just 16 shots with either 60 or 70gr FFg each. The layer of crud is a few hundredths thick everywhere, but at a few spots forms these odd dried-film like structures. Interestingly enough much of the corrosion "chips away" without much difficulty. There is also an interesting dried hard orange deposit all around the raised holes in the baffles. No idea what to make of that.

                How are you gonna clean between shots in the field? Only fire once the whole day?

                It seems like every 3 shots requires a few patches soaked with cleaner on a jag. I'm guessing this expensive Butch's Black Powder Bore Shine is simply soap and water... feels like I got ripped off paying $11.95 for an 8oz it. Also need to pick the touch hole with a piece of wire.

                https://i.imgur.com/k22GwI7.jpg

                About the touch hole...does the suppressor create any increase in pressure out the hole? Is this a risk? Or is it ok?

                Sure seems like it does! If you watch the video, it looks like almost all the smoke comes out the touch hole instead of the muzzle.

                That's the OG Buth's bore shine. Totally different stuff with the noxious fumes and ability to dissolve carbon easily from smokeless powder. Also essentially lists no water, which the the Black Powder Bore Shine seems to be mostly, from my own observations.

                you should get some glassware, a hotplate, and a thermometer and fractionally distill some gasoline or diesel for the pentanes and toluene and experiment with detergents
                there's multiple youtube videos describing this process, hexanes and benzene are super toxic so you should burn those immediately but everything else is fine to use as a nonpolar solvent

      https://i.imgur.com/Oqtefyu.jpg

      OK, a few pictures. I should have taken more of the process. I'm going to skip some details and unique challenges in making this setup.

      Here is the frontend of the gun. I cut 8" off the barrel, which took the front sight with it. I also had to shorten the underlug, and make some 6-48 blind drill and taps to re-attach the underlug and (now just one) thimble at the new locations. Ramrod obviously got shortened, too.

      The barrel is threaded 3/4x24RH. The suppressor mount has a 0.602" inside diameter, so I left a .599" dia tenon extending past the threads. THis allows me to seat bullets much easier than if the crown was recessed inside the mount. The walls are thin, but thick wall hoop stress calculations for what I guess the steel is (4140) said they should be safe at under 0.05" thick.

      https://i.imgur.com/ZLb6oEL.jpg

      The new "suppressor height" front sight is a Marble's 0.25" ramp base for flat barrels. The insert is a 0.53" tall sight with a 1/16" gold bead. Took a solid hour of fitting the two sights together.

      The sight base called for 2x 6-48 screws that were very shallow. I was fearful these would break when drifing the front sight. Well, the screws tore right out of the barrel, and I had to go back and make them 8-40 instead. Much stronger.

      I used Formula 44-40 for a quick cold blue of everything I cut and file on. Does a decent job.

      :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD :DDD

      Got one more video from a coworker. This one was SMS-grade comrpessed, so forgive the worse quality than the other one. Has much better fireworks though, as the backpressure ejects everything through the touch hole. This one was just 60gr of FFg, as opposed to 70gr in the prior.

          >This is black powder fricktard. It needs cleaning after every single shooting session or it will corrode.
          Fricking moron. Titanium has very good corrosion resistance, and burnt BP is better then corrosive primers, it corrodes simply due to the fouling attracting moisture. It's QD so he can just pop it off when done and if it's wet weather and he's really worried give it a quick dunk and it'll be fine.

              Yeah for unburned BP the charcoal and potassium nitrate are mildly hygroscopic, latter is a weak salt too, and fouling after shooting is more hygroscopic. So it'll pull moisture out of the air, and moisture rusts steel, so that's the problem. But it's not like it's some super acid that melts barrels in minutes like some anons act. Quick wet/dry wipe can do you for a few days until more thorough cleaning and you can shoot it all you want. In an arid environment like desert or super cold winter you can get away with being even lazier. Tons of people have experimented with all this.

              In OP's case though I recognize that suppressor and it's pure titanium, so much more corrosion resistant including vs salts than the barrel itself. And cans don't explode or some shit as they foul up, they just stop working well. Often recommended cleaning schedules actually go by weight, like with one of my ti cans it just says
              >"weigh it when you get it new and write then down, once it's 1 oz heavier clean it"
              It's a cool project not some bomb. He can have fun with it as he would any flint, the can won't be a limiting factor it'll be the easy part. Ballistol is cheap as frick, pop the can and drop it in when he does a real clean of the barrel, done.

              OP undoubtedly knows all this already though.

      THAT's how you loaded it?! Wild. Wonder if they still make them.

      Still want to know how it's loaded, do you remove the suppressor every time or do you have tube of some sort to get the charge to the bottom and push it out?

        OK, a few pictures. I should have taken more of the process. I'm going to skip some details and unique challenges in making this setup.

        Here is the frontend of the gun. I cut 8" off the barrel, which took the front sight with it. I also had to shorten the underlug, and make some 6-48 blind drill and taps to re-attach the underlug and (now just one) thimble at the new locations. Ramrod obviously got shortened, too.

        The barrel is threaded 3/4x24RH. The suppressor mount has a 0.602" inside diameter, so I left a .599" dia tenon extending past the threads. THis allows me to seat bullets much easier than if the crown was recessed inside the mount. The walls are thin, but thick wall hoop stress calculations for what I guess the steel is (4140) said they should be safe at under 0.05" thick.

        https://i.imgur.com/ZLb6oEL.jpg

        The new "suppressor height" front sight is a Marble's 0.25" ramp base for flat barrels. The insert is a 0.53" tall sight with a 1/16" gold bead. Took a solid hour of fitting the two sights together.

        The sight base called for 2x 6-48 screws that were very shallow. I was fearful these would break when drifing the front sight. Well, the screws tore right out of the barrel, and I had to go back and make them 8-40 instead. Much stronger.

        I used Formula 44-40 for a quick cold blue of everything I cut and file on. Does a decent job.

        https://i.imgur.com/i4fVPkk.jpg

        The suppressor mount is made of the same 6AL4V titanium as the rest of the can. All the mounts come in a matte wet bead blast grey finish.

        You can easily darken this grade of titanium. I heated the mount up with a propane torch till it was about to start glowing, then quenched it in WD40. It turns is a very dark, smokey, grey with a hint of antique bronze. Perfect luster for this gun.

        I-it's beautiful.

      Didn't test it yet. The manufacturer has a full suite of industry standard test equipment and procedures. Once the weather is nicer, we will do some formal testing. I'm suspecting it may be louder at the shooter's ear than the muzzle, due to the flash pan and touch hole. Some semi-auto guns are louder at the ear due action noise, ejection port, and gas ports on piston guns. I'm just hopin gfor 140DB at the muzzle with a powder charge that I like.

      On that note, I bought a lifetime supply of Hornaday Great Plains 385gr .50-cal lubed bullets for this gun.

      I'd forgotten about that, often the definition of "firearm" doesn't include muzzleloaders or pre-1900 weapons or replicas with some exceptions, so if a suppressor is integral the result is not NFA at all and bypasses all sorts of restrictions. Same as large bore high power air rifles (which can actually be pretty loud) can be integral suppressed no prob, because they aren't "firearms" legally at all.

            The main law that covers this is N.J.S.A. 2C:39-1(f). It says that anything that shoots a projectile using compressed air or gas counts as a firearm. So all those BB, pellet, and airsoft guns that use compressed air or CO2 cartridges to shoot are firearms under NJ law."

      how do you load it if ramrod is shorter than the new barrel + can length?

      What else can I say on the subject now...

      Oh, threading the barrel was very difficult!! There were two main problems here:
      1) The barrel profile is octagonal, and I only have access to a 3-jaw chuck on the lathe.
      2) The bore was not at all concentric to the outside profile where I cut it.

      For problem #1, I had to make my own makeshift tool. I took a short ~3" bar of 6061 aluminum and bored it through a few hundreds more than the octagon barrel. Turned down the outside till the wall was just ~0.08" thick. I then made a thin longitudal cut so it could act as a crimping "collet" of sorts. I think lined the inside with a thin piece of copper shim to prevent marring. Was was then put in the headstock and seemed to grasp the barrel evenly.

      For problem 2, the runout was atrocious. It was concentric at the 28" muzzle end before I cut it, but at 20" it was **visually** off. At least two or three hundreds. When I put it in the tailstock, the lathe would start shaking when I turned it on! I eventually managed to find a "sweet spot" by rotating the breech end in my custom collet tool until the lathe moved smoothly. Couldn't use a runout gauge because... you know... octagon-reasons.

      bruh you are supposed to dial in the inside of the bore not the outside of the barrel. either way you should have just taken out the breech plug and done it between centers.

    The rail I whittled out of a spare chunk of mild steel, alloy unknown. The bottom has three facets at 45' of each other to match the profile of the octagonal barrel. A quick cold blue to darken it. I'm not a fan of the matte luster, doesn't match the rest of the gun. May cerakote it to match another time.

    The rail is attached by 3x 8-40 screws blind drill and tapped into the barrel. The rail covered the existing 2x 6-48 screw holes for the factory rear sight which was removed. I opted to use old-timely flathead screws instead of some.

    The rear sight is a David Pedersoli "Creedmoor". It's kind of an unimpressive cheapie, but was just ~$80 instead of the 300-500 for finer tang sights.

    Being made in Italy, it came with M4 screws which I did not have a tap for. I used the existing tang wood screw for the rear hole, and drilled and tapped a single 10x32 for the front hole. Drilled out the center aperture a few hundreds to make it "usable".

      Half right. If it's integral to the gun, you can have an integreally suppressed muzzleloader with no stamp. Kind of like air rifles, etc. but pretty rare when it comes to muzzleloaders unless you buy pic rel

        not that anon but afaik tritium paint did actually exist for a while, as a substitute for radium paint around the '60s. It saw some use in night sights before the more familiar glass tubes became common. I'm not sure how it worked given that tritium is usually a gas rather than a solid like radium.

          >I'm not sure how it worked given that tritium is usually a gas rather than a solid like radium.
          It chemicaly identical to common hydrogen, so you can create all kinds of substances when 'normal' hydrogen will be substituted by tritium. It's basically the same method llike using lithium hydride enriched with tritium in hydrogen bombs, because dealing with LiH which is a solid is much easier then with tritium in gas form.
          Of course it's different components that lithium hydride that are used in night sights.

      Here you go. This is the Hornaday Great Plains 385gr bullet over 70gr of FFg.

      I will eventually do a more formal video in the spring. Outside, well lit, with sound... show the laoding procedure, sound pressure testing from multiple points, chronograph, cleaning, etc.. This is just a prelimninary day-one video.

      absolutely moronic but I can only applaud your commitment and craftsmanship
      I'm eternally stuck on the design phase on my own moronic projects because they're dangerously moronic so I'm more than a bit jelly someone out there is making and showing off their moronation

          I need details on how this thing fires.

          • 4 weeks ago
            Josh

            The details are getting hazy... but here's the short of it. The 20mm cartridges use electric primers instead of percussion. My understanding is that a lot of modern cartridges beyond "small arms" do.
            1) The remote control contains 2x CR123 batteries in series which makes 3V DC.
            2) The 3V DC is fed into a step-up converter which turns it into something higher. Let's sat 24V.
            3) The current is stored in a Rubicon flash photo capacitor.
            4) When an interlock switch(es) on the remote are depressed to fire, the current from the flash photo capacitor are dumped into the center ring of the primer from the insulated firing pin/electrode.
            5) As the current moves from the inner ring of the primer to the outer ring the priming compound is ignited. The circuit is completed as the current passes through the outer primer ring, to the case body, to the gun receiver, to the return wire on the remote.
            5) The resulting pressures of firing are contained in a crude """falling block""" action in the gun.

    What else can I say on the subject now...

    Oh, threading the barrel was very difficult!! There were two main problems here:
    1) The barrel profile is octagonal, and I only have access to a 3-jaw chuck on the lathe.
    2) The bore was not at all concentric to the outside profile where I cut it.

    For problem #1, I had to make my own makeshift tool. I took a short ~3" bar of 6061 aluminum and bored it through a few hundreds more than the octagon barrel. Turned down the outside till the wall was just ~0.08" thick. I then made a thin longitudal cut so it could act as a crimping "collet" of sorts. I think lined the inside with a thin piece of copper shim to prevent marring. Was was then put in the headstock and seemed to grasp the barrel evenly.

    For problem 2, the runout was atrocious. It was concentric at the 28" muzzle end before I cut it, but at 20" it was **visually** off. At least two or three hundreds. When I put it in the tailstock, the lathe would start shaking when I turned it on! I eventually managed to find a "sweet spot" by rotating the breech end in my custom collet tool until the lathe moved smoothly. Couldn't use a runout gauge because... you know... octagon-reasons.

    Aaaand one last video for now. Another SMS-potato-quality video, but the angle shows off the profile of the suppressor better. This time it is a coworker shooting it.

    I'll make another thread in the coming months when I get some better videos, sound pressure levels, and chronograph data.

    I'll stop posting now unless anyone has further questions.

    ok, I've got a project that involves machining a muzzle as well, could you indicate off of the rifling inside the bore? its a bit sketchy since it isn't contiguous, but there are portions that are concentric to the bore that can be checked.

    Some estimated numbers from a free internal ballistics calculator for 60gr of FFg pushing a 385gr .500" bullet in this 20" gun. 1028ft/lbs of estimated muzzle energy.

    Looks like I can drop it down to like 55gr for a subsonic load. Otherwise, review of this bullet cite people shooting it as high as 100gr of FFg, which might yeild 1330fps and 1513ft/lbs.

    fwiw the last durr I took in regular firearms season was with just ~440ft/lbs with a Hornaday 190gr Sub-X .300blk at about 70 yards. Of course that was right in the fricking brain though...

      I am well-aware of the once Maxim-50. That was built on a much more modern firearm - a "Traditions Vortex Strikefire". That uses a 209 shotshell primer, removable breeche plug... easy mode. Suppressor was welded on and non-serviceable. Probably a cheap all mild steel suppressor. You also had to use a special funnel to load the powder and bullet through the oversize suppressor baffles.

    This is really cool, but at the same time - does it really have that much of an impact on the sound, considering that you still have the powder in the pan/through the touch hole going bang? Also, won't the flash and the powder smoke still be a big giveaway? Or is this a case where the suppression is more of a user comfort thing (could it be fired without ears on)?

      >This is really cool, but at the same time - does it really have that much of an impact on the sound, considering that you still have the powder in the pan/through the touch hole going bang?
      Yes, it has a major impact on sound. This isn't magic anon, most of the sound when shooting a gun is generated by the rapidly expanding gas, and most of that is going out the muzzle no matter what the design is (if most of it ISN'T going out the muzzle you have other things to be concerned about). Now sure, absolutely some designs suppress better than others, and this is true for modern guns too, a bolt action suppresses somewhat better and more easily then gas operated for example. But any suppressor will make a big difference in sound to the shooter.
      >Also, won't the flash and the powder smoke still be a big giveaway?
      Uh? It's a fricking flintlock anon. We're not talking tactical advantage for special operations here, or sekrit sniper poaching, we're talking silly good fun.
      >Or is this a case where the suppression is more of a user comfort thing (could it be fired without ears on)?
      All civilian suppression is about user protection and bothering neighbors less. Earpro can only suppress a max of 40dB or so anyway, and most doesn't get above 30. And that's with something fairly big and bulky. A suppressor doesn't have to be <120dB to still make things more comfortable, you can get away with smaller lighter earpro. And if don't live totally in the middle of nowhere it can be good to go shooting more often and at times that might otherwise cause friction.

    Another picture of a 16-shot baffle after I chipped away some of that aforementioned dried film like structure. You can see that the fowling is already several hundreds of an inch thick. Consequently, it would probably take me 1,000 shots of .308win through another suppressor to get a layer this thick.

    Here I dug up the residual 8" barrel piece. You can visibly see how far out of alignment the bore is with the exterior profile!

    I did shoot 6 more rounds through it today. Thankfully there doesn't seem to be any indication of baffle brushes/strikes, keyholing, etc.. While I was cleaning the gun, I pulled the stainless touch hole insert out so I could shine a flashlight through to giva visible suppressor alignment check. Seems fine, and I have absolutely seen much worse mounting jobs!

      for the bore alignment of the muzzle threads, instead of rechucking a whole bunch of times couldn't you have chucked the barrel as "long" as you could, then do all your work well back on the tailstock end of the lathe bed
      live center makes sure the bore's centered
      then rechuck it short to crown off the mangled sixteenth of an inch from the live center riding on the bore
