Somewhere I read that beside three main types of suppressors, lets call em the
"reflex / advanced baffle"
"simple baffle / disc & spacer" and
"hush puppy / wiper" type,

there has been a forth type using just steel mesh / steel wool. Is such a construction an urban myth or does it really work? Didn't the High Power HD use that principle, or was steel woll just used for the integral part of it's silencer?

There are basic designs that seem to predominate, but not 3 or 4 types.

Rolled screen around ported barrels, and rolled screen without spacer tubing work well in some applications.

The industry doesn't currently sell any of those, because people don't like to pay $600 for screen suppressors.

I can't imagine steel wool being effective on any round that has any muzzle flash.

Steel wool BURNS. Try it some time. It's cool. Tie a wad of steel wool on the end of a wire hanger, ignite it with a lighter, and swing it around in circles.

I have owned a few cans that the wire mess had been replaced with Chore-Boy scrubbing pads.....I don't remember if this was a C-2 Mfg or customer modification, but the Chore-Boys held up and seemed to worked fine.

Not true, got a customers Mark White pocket rifle in earlier this year - it's a recent manufactured one. Take off the can and what do i see iin the back? Wire mesh - no shit.

There's a steel mesh in the sterling silencer.

That's surprising. The monolith is fully welded and sealed as far as I understood.... I don't know how that jives with mesh packing that sort of does eventually need to see replacement.

It works fine, the problem is that it eats volume, and leaves less room for carbon to go, so it results in shorter suppressor life than solid baffle designs in my experience. Of course that's what? a 1.25x6" design?

The sterling is obsolete. AWC is sort of an odd company in sound suppressors. Stuck in the past.

Chore-Boy has been used along with brass wool, steel wool burns up too quickly to be useful.
Also different types of screening such as window screen which is not the best, brass is better for absorbing heat along with different mesh sizes of steel, stainless lasts longer and is easier to shape.
But this is mostly old tech stuff.
Today's baffle systems are much much better imo.

One of the best things we have found to use is a small chain that you can get at most hardware stores. I am talking about the one of the smallest size chains they have. Depending on what you are building will determine how much chain you need.

Worked well on a ruger mkII.

John Norrell uses brass eyelets in his repackable integral designs.

"* Brass cooling eyelets for repacking suppressors. Ruger pistol suppressor uses one ounce, Ruger 10/22 full length Ruger 10/22 suppressor uses three ounces. If purchasing eyelts only please include $9.00 shipping when ordering.... $ 5.00 per ounce of eyelets"

Do you happen to know how big the eyelets are?
