Who made the supressor. The gun I think is a M3, dosent the A1 have a hole in the bolt for cocking and the M3 has a cocking knob. Or am I totall wrong.
I hope to see the guns again next week.

TL Guns made the suppressor, they are no longer in business. It works excellent and unlike some of the other Grease Gun cans out there it can be dissassembled for cleaning. It is also a few inches shorter than the other silencers I've seen.
You are totally right, the M3 has a bolt cocking handle. The M3A1 version does not, you must use your finger or thumb to cock the weapon.
You won't get your "cocking finger" dirty with powder residue with the M3 model! laugh.gif

I confirmed that the M3 has a cocking lever so it is the M3 version and not the M3A1

Picked up from an article that was posted on the Grease gun board. Funny how things just get answered around here..... tongue.gif

A small number of M3s were nickel-plated for use by guards at the Philippine Navy Headquarters on Roxas Boulevard, Manila.

I'm surprised that no one mentioned that many M3s were converted to A1 standard.
