Yes sir I fully agree, these will be marked as to tell the difference. Maybe M14SS-2, I should think that will work out nicely. The originals were stamped M14SS-1.Something I felt like I should mention. I was discussing the whole idea of replicas versus the originals with a buddy of mine that collects old and rare firearms of all types. He mentioned that if we don't mark them as replicas in some form or fashion they could potentially hurt the market for the originals. I would love having an original style replica but as a collector I would not want to hurt the original market in anyway. Just a thought I felt I should throw out there.
Friendly bump for those who maybe interested and hadn't seen the thread.Guys I will push for these to be as close to the original as possible, to include the aluminum tubing and rubber wipes. I have been looking for other posts talking about these very rare suppressors and can find no one on the net that has one. I believe these accurate copies will be a big deal to collectors who cannot find the original article.
My advice is get your name on the list if you have a real desire to own something so rare, even if it is a clone it will be an accurate one.
No one has these and I don't think they will build that many.

Heads up, ATF cashed the check so now it is a waiting game.
Polack,it didn't have wipes.i have the m16 1 complete,3 registered tubes serial 16/17/18/19.
i think mac. they are packed away. baffles are aluminum like the mac 10 baffles. tube should be steel to handle the pressure and full auto fire. make sure you find a real good penetration solution/marvel mystery oil etc,and soak the end in it for a week or so before trying to take it apart.if your going to try to clamp it,find something that clamps round things. find out where the bbl screws in and clamp it there. find an old bbl to screw in it before you do. don't want to collapse the thread area
wipes are neoprene 90 durometer minimum
