255 Days Later

255 Days Later sounds like a very slow-moving Zombie Movie doesn't it?

Yes, 255 days later, the approval and stamp arrived, and I could legally pick it up from suppressor jail. A bit more 4473 paperwork, and it was all mine.


It is a SilencerCo Octane 45.  

Purchased last year when SilencerCo was having a "Buy a suppressor, get a free Octane" deal.  So for the $200 tax stamp and 255 day wait (from the day it arrived at my dealer, not the date of purchase so it was actually quite a bit longer), I now have a 45 cal can.  

It is much lighter and narrower than the Hybrid 46 that it was purchased with at the same time.

Now to set it up, as you have to install the appropriate piston, sold separately, to match it to the appropriate pistol caliber you're going to use it with.  Then to take it to the range and try it out.

That is ridiculous!!!

Old NFO: Yep, we will see if it was worth the wait. The processing time for these is a massive annoyance.

The wait time sucks, but at least you can have a suppressor in your state !!!
