7000 grains in a pound, so a 115 grain bullet weighs ~0.016 pounds.

Thanks for the kind words, once I got serious about college, I tried to pay attention and retain a few things.ok lol, you clearly really know your stuff which is awesome!! And thank you very much for taking the time and helping me out.
But once you brought in numbers, you’ve lost me lol. So I’m still confused on the O ring part lol, like the size I need or if an assortment kit will work in finding which one fits.
Perfect!Thanks for the kind words, once I got serious about college, I tried to pay attention and retain a few things.
I would try the 12.37 inch diameter O ring. Take your barrel only and go to an old fashion hardware store, and pick up a few o rings, don't buy hundreds you will never use.
Yep you got it, 1 o ring at a time. Replace when it breaks or gets damaged.Perfect!
I get my barrel, thread protector and brake in today. So later this week, I’ll bring my barrel and stop by a hardware store and play with a few O rings and see which ones fit and buy a handful of them.
Only 1 goes on the barrel right? That should be plenty to prevent slipping?
Ok I got it, well thanks again Gator for taking the time and helping me out with all these questions I had and stuff, I really appreciate it!Yep you got it, 1 o ring at a time. Replace when the break or get damaged.
Yes it is ice to be able to practice with you supressor while awaiting the tax stamp.There’s a LGS not too far from me that sells suppressors, and when it comes the time to buy one, I wanna bring my handgun in and see which one fits before buying it and also pick up some subsonic ammo while I’m there. And the best thing is they’ve got an indoor shooting range, so they actually let you play with your suppressor there while you wait for your tax stamp.
Squirt some oil in the barrel and drag a bore snake through it and go a shootin' is my normal routine.My barrel and thread protector just now delivered and they both fit, barrel drops in the slide and thread protector fits on perfectly. Still waiting on the brake. Will post pics later when the brake comes in.
I got one more question, do I need to clean the barrel before shooting or can I just use it how it came?
if I do need to clean it, it will have to wait possibly later this week since it’s been raining lately and still is for the next 2 days.
I may buy the O rings this week if I have time if not, then later is fine. I don’t plan on doing mag dumps with my pistol anytime soon and so I’m in no rush.
yep, it just seemed a little sketchy to do cash app, money orders, checks etc. So I bought from a seller that’s an FFL dealer and he responded to my questions instantly.You did the right thing avoiding Cash Ap. Do not deal with anyone that only accepts Cash Ap or Zelle.
Yes, you can shoot it.Can I still shoot it even if it’s not timed correctly?, I mean it’s a $15 brake, I don’t thing it will really do a whole lot anyways. I just bought it to have something to play with on my new barrel.
Won’t this make the brake a permanent install?Yes, you can shoot it.
Thank you! Will try running a few test rounds tomorrow with the thread protector on and lastly with the brake.
You or someone will need to put the barrel in a padded vise and "crush" the washer until the brake is properly aligned. That is why it is called a crush washer, tighten until alignment is correct.
