    DPT Baffle Modification

    Does anyone have any insight on enlarging the holes in DPT baffles on a MKII from 6mm to 6.5mm? I've got access to a machine shop and reckon 0.5mm is not much to open up unless there is a significant difference in the way the baffles are made. Much rather do that than have to buy all new baffles to change from a 6mm to a 6.5mm bullet. If anyone has any extras or wants to swap happy to chat about that as well.

    Why? I think they have done enough R&D to know what works the best. Your warranty is out the door as soon as you take tool to them also.

    Second hand value is pretty good. Sell what you have and buy a new one

    I wouldn’t recommend it. It may be easier to sell them and buy the correct caliber.

    Thanks

    Or you could just fit the 6mm suppressor to your 6.5, and after the first shot the job should be done ;-)
