If you want to reduce the noise of your weapon, the fastest and best way is to mount a suppressor to the threaded barrel of your gun.
It is an easy process, and it will take you less than ten seconds to complete the job. But how to attach a suppressor to a non threaded barrel?
Mounting a suppressor to this barrel can be more complicated. The good news is that you can do this yourself with the right tools and an accurate guide.
So let’s read to see more!
How to Attach a Suppressor to a Non Threaded Barrel?
Step 1: Gather All Necessary Items
Before attaching the silencer (suppressor) to your non-threaded barrel, you need to start by finding a safe, clean, and well-ventilated area.
You don’t have to find a dedicated room. Instead, you should be fine with a large enough space to take the following steps.
You need to prepare your non-threaded barrel, a non-threaded suppressor, and a work area. You can use a long table or the floor as long as it is clear.
Step 2: Unload Your Weapon for Safety Reasons
Before attaching a suppressor, it is essential to unload your firearm. Otherwise, it may jeopardize the product and your safety.
For unloading your gun, place it on the workspace or a working table. After that, carefully and slowly take the magazine out of your firearm.
Then, take the bullet out of your magazine one by one before checking out the chamber of your gun to ensure it is empty.
It is wise to keep your bullets/ammunition in a safe place to secure them. Then, you have finished unloading your firearm.
Step 3. Disassemble the Weapon
Once you have unloaded your gun, it is time to disassemble it.
In most cases, firearms or weapons come with an owner’s manual, which includes recommendations from the manufacturers. So all you need to do is follow its instructions.
But if you lose this manual, don’t worry! It is possible to go online to find an uploaded manual. You can start by going to the manufacturer’s official web to get an exact step-by-step guide.
You will also need to collect proper equipment to disassemble the weapon.
It may not be necessary to disassemble a rifle part by part, but you will need to secure the rifle with one gun vise when performing this process.
Open the muzzle before placing it on your bench vise. It is equipment that attaches directly to one workbench to hold your gun during processes.
Your gun will be fixed by a gun vise. So it is unnecessary to hold your weapon the entire period attaching your silencer.
Step 4: Attach Your Suppressor
As your barrel is non-threaded, preparing an adapter to lock a suppressor is essential. So, this suppressor cannot slide off your gun barrel’s muzzle.
We recommend utilizing the non-threaded adapter for the non-threaded barrel. But it is okay to utilize barrel bushing, locking pins, or taper pins to secure non-threaded suppressors or muzzle devices.
Whatever option you’d pick, ensure that this device will reach the non-threaded barrel before disassembling your gun.
To do it, you need to start by taking the slider and spring parts out from the gun. Then, put the adapter and tighten its screws around the non-threaded barrel.
Once you have ensured that your adapter is placed properly on its mounting system, it is time to screw it on your non-threaded barrel’s muzzle.
Step 5: Apply Metal Bonding Solution
Once you have screwed an adapter on your barrel without thread to secure one safe location for the rifle suppressor or flash hider, it is time to apply the metal bonding solution.
All you need to do is apply the metal bonding solution outside your gun’s muzzle. After that, you can attach your silencer before twisting an adapter around your gun’s muzzle.
Tighten the silencer utilizing enough force or twist, but avoid over-tightening your adapter. Afterward, leave the solution to stay for one day or more before utilizing your gun.
Things You Should Or Shouldn’t Do
Attaching a silencer to a barrel without thread can be dangerous. So, you’ll need to consider a few things before you get started.
First, remember that the silencer must be securely installed in your gun’s muzzle. To do it, you should use adapters or locking pins.
For safety reasons, we recommend unloading your rifles or firearms before attaching a silencer or suppressor to the non-threaded barrel.
Also, avoid pointing a gun at yourself or others while working on this project.
