    i work around hundreds of thousands of dollars of pro audio gear for work purposes.. including real time anylizers, reference quality mics and nois gens and signal db meters with graphing and computer store capability.

    it's no big deal. you can't use a 30$ analog swinging needle job, or the app on an iphone.. but there are plenty of ways to do it right.. especially with a meter tha has different weightings and speed sampling rates.

    I've been told It will affect accuracy at range but within 100 yards (.223) you should be fine and if your shooting subsonic that's about all you would be doing anyway. It's really only the first shot that is affected all that much and that's just because it's punching threw the oil can. From what I've seen it doesn't do much to the accuracy.

    I wouldn't recommend shooting it wet just because the martial in the filter will absorb the water and I have no idea what that would do besides make it heavy. We actually have never tested that.

    The life of the filter depends on what you are shooting out of it. With a .22lr you can shoot it all day. With a .223 you might get a hundred shots out of it but It's made and sold to be used with a .22lr. Having said that we beat the heck out of them. We have put on on an RPD before. it only survived one belt of 7.62 but it worked good. We also run them on our full auto guns but I don't recommend it. We just do it because we can and we get bored at the range.

    If you have any other questions feel free to call us or send an e-mail. Chris Reed the owner would be happy to talk to you.

    i reckon the things great ..

    i had a full Sionics kit done on a Mac , that was $3000 back then ( 82?)

    and they had to be emptied and repacked every 500 rounds , but make it 300 and you wont get a surprise when its starts to roar ...

    or this, a few bills for the unit , $9 a can , for 50 rounds of .223 or a heap of .22 lr

    just as a can this is way cheaper and way shorter than most cans i say hats off to whoever invented it

    That would be Tom coal with cadiz gun works. He is a darn good gunsmith and Chris Reed owner of ASA works with him a lot. We sell his Adapters but he is the one who makes them.

    do your adapters thread onto all oil filters or only certain ones?

    I think Cat or cummins, or detroit make a skinny fuel filter. that is a lot less that most oil filters. I don't remember it has been 15 years since I changed the oil on a big rig.

    there are quite a few narrow filters to choose from/ I have a small fleet of heavy equipment I service. some filters are just a bit larger around than a toilet paper cardboard inner sleeve..
