I'd heard of a "K" baffle, but never seen one. Interesting, in that the offset secondary hole and cone-shape combine to provide a secondary "chamber" for the gas to enter and then reverse course & exit the same path backwards. It also gives a lot of surface area for heat transfer.

(This isn't mine, just a pic I came across.)

It does cut down on maintenance. Cleaning only every couple thousand rounds, and no re-forming even then; just disassemble/clean/reassemble. And still provides very good db reduction.

Not exactly "pointless" if it can cut maintenance down that much, IMO.

I actually don't know if the one I'm having built has these or the older "M" style baffles; I've seen my guy's suppressors in use, but never seen one disassembled. (The "M" baffle looks like you'd expect a suppressor baffle to look like. Kind of like a washer with the inner and outer rims folded in, or a hollowed-out half-bagel shape.)

So I'm not trying to defend the type I'm going to, because I don't know if that's what's in it or not; just passing something along that I hadn't come across before and struck me as interesting.

Don't worry, once I get my MarkII back, I'm sure you'll be sick of me posting pics and talking about it. :cool:
