    This wasnt made for an AF rifle, but the design is exactly the same as one I would make for a Condor with minor differences that I’ll explain as I go along.

    Machined an end cap and two bushings. Bushings are to hold the shroud on the barrel so everything is concentric. I use two bushings – one at the start of the shroud and one at the end of the barrel giving me the most distance between the two which will make the bore of the barrel and the washers line up more accuratly.

    In a Condor shroud the frame lines everything up and you only need 1 bushing at the end of the shroud to stop the insides coming out if you remove the shroud from the gun. You dont even really need that, but it makes it easier.

    I used finish washers as they have that nice cone shape. I’m not as patient or as good a machinist as most of the other guys here who have lathes so I cant be bothered making those nice cone shaped baffles.

    Condor shroud would have a lot more springs because its longer, but this shroud only extends a few inches past the barrel so it just has one large chamber followed by washers and o-rings until I get to the end of the shroud.

    I havent drilled the set screw holes yet, but thats pretty easy and anyone who owns a tap knows how to do that.

    Nice work. How well do those washers work? Any chance of them tipping in the shroud?

    The cone one I made decided to tip and clipping was crazy. I have been using it for a year with no problems and then it decided to go crazy on me.

    I have yet to drill vent holes in brass tubing ,and wrap with Scotchbrite inside, but this is the first time i’ve heard hammer slap on this rifle,not to mention the pellet smack on the 1/2 ” hardened aluminum backstop in my pellet trap. I’m pretty happy so far with my 7/8 tube. tz

    Rabbits – Thats the same design, cept smaller scale as what I had on my 86fpe .25 Condor and it quietened it down to the same level as my baffled 26 fpe SS.

    Adam – Never had a problem with tipping.
