I’ve only recently found out about AEA airguns. This is my first big bore so I don’t know how it stacks up against others, but I’m certainly impressed and looking forward to getting some accessories out for it. I’m working on a suppressor for the .35 caliber and a tri-rail/band that clamps onto the reservoir. I started out with a suppressor that is close to the same size as our 1/2-20 UNF suppressor and quickly found out that it needs way more volume than that. What I’ve ended up with is a monster that takes 16 hours to print! Here’s a little video preview. Also, note the tri-rail makes an appearance as well.
More details on the suppressor and tri-rail later.
The front sight post has come back. It learned a lot while it was away. We’ve reconciled our differences and found a compromise. I’ve let go of the indexing flat and he will no longer ruin one half of my prints as long as I put him at the very front of the suppressor and only print him on the 3d printers of his choosing.
The front sight post will need to be aligned manually now but it’s straighter, looks better, and works better. I’ve added the option to purchase the suppressor with or without the front sight post. You can find that here: 2240 Suppressor
I was going to call this Pontifications on Wormholes, and Other News, but pragmatism won the day. More on that later. I’ve been busy and have many irons in the fire. That’s not new. But the products of my BUSYness are new. So here that is. Enjoy!
Benjamin Marauder Pistol Forearm – A great customer suggested that I make some of these without the pressure gauge hole for folks who have added a regulator and removed the gauge block. Now you can choose to include or exclude the pressure gauge hole. Check that out HERE.
Benjamin Marauder Pistol Suppressor – I’ve worked up a tiny little suppressor for the Benjamin Marauder that threads directly into the barrel shroud. It’s the same diameter as the shroud and only about 4″, but makes a BIG difference. It has a honeycomb pattern on the exterior to hide layer lines and provides some grip for installation. It’ll be printed in Polycarbonate and ridiculously cheap. No adapter, no interference with filling, low price, small package, and BIG reduction in noise. More to come on that soon!
Crosman 2240 Suppressor – I’ve been getting so many emails about these. The simple truth is that I broke them and now I’m struggling to fix them. I’ve gotten rid of the printers that printed them most reliably and decided at the same time to take it down and make some improvements. Thicker walls, moved the front sight post to the front, added set screw, etc. Now everything I try causes some other issue and now I cant even print the originals without issue. This is our number one seller, so believe me, I’m working on it, but have no ETA for when they’ll be available. That’s the bad news, but here’s the good news…
Crosman 1/2-20 UNF Adapter – I’m working on a 1/2-20 UNF adapter for the Crosman 7/16″ish barrel. That may right my wrong with the 2240 suppressors. It’ll be machined from 4140 steel, Black Oxide finish, and have 2 set screws to secure it to the barrel. I’ve already ordered them in bulk, but I’m taking a chance on the tolerance for the muzzle hole diameter. I have a bunch of Crosman barrels and will test them out on those, but could end up scrapping a whole lot of them and going back to the drawing board. If you know the tolerance on the barrel outside diameter let me know!
1/2-20 UNF Suppressors – A few customers suggested making these suppressors compatible with .25 caliber as well. I’ve listened and added an option to select either .177/.22 Caliber or .25 Caliber at checkout. I don’t yet have a .25 Caliber airgun with 1/2-20 UNF threads to test it on so bear with me if you purchase one and aren’t satisfied. There’s no need to immediately go tell the world that Buck-Rail ruined your life and you’ll never know happiness again. Just let me know the issue and I’ll take care of it. Check that out HERE.
AirForce TalonP Suppressor – Some of you may have noticed a suppressor on my TalonP in a blog post I did a while back. That was when I “permanently” stopped selling suppressors temporarily… Now that I’ve “temporarily” resumed selling suppressors permanently I have been getting them ready for selling to the masses. Out of all the products I’ve designed and sold, the AirForce Grip and Forearm have done the worst. In fact, I sold 1 set! Thank you Kevin… I know that will change with time because they’re awesome and the right folks probably just don’t know about them yet. So I’m going out on a limb and adding a suppressor to the mix as well. I’ve been using mine for a while and it has been great.
Daisy 880 Suppressor Kit– One thing that has been surprisingly popular is our suppressor for the Daisy 880. I’ve relisted them with some minor improvements. The print quality is improved and the suppressor is now smaller in diameter with the same report suppression and functionality. Check that out HERE.
Crosman Picatinny and Dovetail Scope Mounts – I’ve made some minor improvements to these scope mounts. I’ve dropped their height slightly and decreased their length so that two of them together make up the distance from front to back of one of our Red Dots… It’s always bothered me that they stick out a little bit from the Red Dots and never thought to change it! (More on the Red Dots in a bit.) Also, they no longer have the interlocking feature in the middle seam. Now they are flat. This allows for more adjustability and the ability to shim them if necessary. I’ve also changed the geometry of the groove to allow for square crossbars to go through without interference. These are really only necessary on firearms with heavy recoil. I will post updated pictures of all that soon. Check those out HERE.
Hawkeye Reflex Sights – I did not intend on restocking these because prices get higher every time I order them. I figured folks would just go over to Amazon, etc. and get them there instead. I’m sure that has happened some, but many folks have voiced that they’d rather buy the Scope Mounts and Red Dot together from us. I did not anticipate that, but certainly appreciate that. They are on order and I’m hoping to have them in stock by the end of the month. Check out the mount and red dot bundle HERE.
Crosman 1377/1322 Adjustable Stock Kit – Our Benjamin Marauder and Crosman 2240 Adjustable Stock Kits have done great. I started to work on the details of the 13XX Stock at the same time as those, then got busy and completely forgot about them. Luckily, a customer reminded me about them so I got back at it and now have the steel machined adapters on order. I should be able to get those listed for sale by the end of the month.
In Other News – I have a lot of 3d printers. 3d printing is very slow. So I need a lot of them to keep up. We’re at 22 and counting. Though they don’t use a lot of power, 22 of them running simultaneously certainly does. These are all in a very small space behind my home. You could say it is very dense. In fact, I’m afraid that if I add much more to that small space I may tear a hole in the space-time continuum and be sucked into a place of utter darkness. Seriously though, I can’t draw anymore power. My cousin is an electrician and is going to help me with that. But, if buck-rail suddenly goes dark you’ll be the first to know why…
I get at least an email a day about this silencer. That is good and that is bad. Good because folks are interested in buying my products and bad because I am putting too much time into not selling them. I’ve gone back and forth about relisting them. They were my babies for a little while, but they started to turn on me when I established a limit for how much time I allotted to them. Full disclosure, I ended up having to talk folks through the install a lot. Not everyone read the description or watched the video. And not everyone knows their way around a hammer. If that’s you, I forgive you. And if that’s not you, from the bottom of my toes, thank you. Better yet, thank you both …but to varying degrees. So I’ve basically decided that it would be better to answer emails WITH a sell rather than WITHOUT. They’re back up for sale until I get worn out again. I would do well to remember that these are good problems to have.
After looking into it more I came across this case from the US 1st Circuit Court of Appeals: https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-1st-circuit/1527670.html This case is also referenced in DonnyFL’s disclaimer. Long story short is this: legislators, law enforcement, and the courts all have opinions about the law but ultimately the court’s interpretation is most important and that’s what I’m going with.
So silencers are back on. I’m sorry for the flip-flopping confusion. For now I’m just going to sell the 1/2-20 UNF and Diana M10 Suppressors. There will be more to come when I find the time.
I have a lot of new parts to release, but I couldn’t wait anymore on this one. This silencer is printed in Polymax Polycarbonate plastic. It takes 8 hours to print just one, but we get a much tougher product in the end. Some things that I’ve done differently with this one is include an expansion chamber at the muzzle, reduced ID baffles nearer the muzzle, and incorporated a stainless steel helical insert for very reliable threading/unthreading. This makes the Diana Chaser Pistol neighbor-friendly without affecting accuracy or muzzle velocity. Here’s a look at the inside:
In this video I install the silencer and test fire the Chaser with and without it. I just got a new mic, so this video actually ALMOST does it justice. Also, you may notice another part I have in the works for the Chaser.
UPDATE! The suppressors are for sale HERE. The Barrel Bands are for sale HERE.
