The Skinny with Mers: AAC EDM Episode

Mike Mers gives the skinny on AAC’s wire EDM’ing process. EDM stands for Electro Discharge Machining. The final through-bore in every Advanced Armament rifle silencer is cut using a Wire-EDM process. The silencers are threaded onto a fixture on the EDM machine that duplicates the muzzle of the host firearm. This ensures the bore through the baffles and front end cap will be concentric to either the threads of the host-firearm barrel or the architecture of a fast-attach muzzle brake or flash hider.

  9. [...] make a long-story short, we switched to a wire EDM process. The same process Advanced Armament Corp. uses on their real-steel silencers. Yes, it costs more. But holy crap, the results are amazing. As soon as I can take some home [...]
