This a really cool design. Nice work around to allow the removable non-welded baffles. I assume the beveled surface of the distal end of the blast baffle rests against a beveled edge inside the tube separating it from the other removable baffles which along with the stainless tube and the extended removable blast chamber prevents the hammer effect metal fatigue that supposedly keeps the octane from using supersonic 300 blk.

I think it's great. Hope a 458 version is in the works.

.458 version with 17-4 baffles would be absolutely awesome.

Going with a larger bore would make it a lot louder. I think it was a good call doing 30 cal.

LOL, yes. But .30 cal baffles keep .45 cal bullets from leaving the device.

They will still exit the suppressor.

The Optimus baffles are thicker- they key together, the tube is 17-4 and not 6061 (3 times greater strength). The blast baffle is 2.5 times the thickness of the other baffles and is in its own area of the suppressor. That helps prevent forces from wanting to crush the forward baffles. It was designed to handle .300 win mag, AND also be able to be fired on a 9mm pistol.

True, but we wanted to make a suppressor that was nearly optimized in every category, rather than one that sounded pretty worthless in most of the commonly used calibers.

We put the short 3 lug config on a 1873 winchester at the shop and fired 158 subsonic loads and it was totally incredible sounds like a more quiet version of disconnecting an air hose. That combination is just awesome.

Basically every task you ask of the can is more confirmation that the design is just about perfect.
