Does anyone have a picture of a WARP with a new suppressor attached to it?

The suppressor is fairly new, so there might not be a photos out there. This said, I do have a photo for you, of the new suppressor on my Cobra. Hope this will do.

By the way, the new suppressor is somewhat quieter than the older one. I didn't measure it, but you sure notice the difference. The nut is the barrel tensioning nut, which also has the male threads for the suppressor.

Thanks Alan.
What was the length of the suppressor and tension nut?
I have been told that the new suppressor is 2.5" longer than the old one.

I thought I answered this before.

It is 6.25 inches long, 1.625 inches OD, and has five inserts (Baffles, see photo). The exposed length of the barrel nut is .75 inches. The overall length of the nut is about 2 inches (I'd have to remove it to be sure, which would mean I would have to re-sight the gun). The threads are the standard .5x20.

Hello.
I have a question about the scope rings that you use in your Flex and WARP.
The question is, that what height scope rings do you use in your rifles? How high they have to be that the magazine fits without being hit by the scope?

I'm considering between medium and high. Maybe some Hawke or UTG rings.

Thanks.

I use rings designed for 11 mm rails. They place the scope center line exactly 2 inches above the bore center line. Medium height as I recall. The reason I use 11 mm rings, is the fact that some picatinny rings do not have enough clearance to clear the 11 mm part of the rail.

If you go here (https://www.wickedairrifles.com/store.html), double click on the photo of the WARP, and look closely to the top of the breach. The 11 mm part sticks up about 3/16 of an inch. In other words, if you use picatinny rings, they have to have at least 3/16 inch clearance.

By the way, if you haven't actually purchased the gun, you can order a breach with just the picatinny rail. It is also available as a replacement.

Ok.
Thanks Alan. I'll keep those dimensions in my mind what you said, when purchasing the rings. Or then i'll wait that the WARP arrives and take it with me to the store where i will buy those rings.
By the way...My WAPR is ready and possibly on it's way now.

They're some form of acrylic, and printed on a 3D printer.

Hey Alan.

I caught my eyes on these scope rings. -> https://www.hawkeoptics.com/tactical-ring-mounts-30mm-2-piece-weaver-medium.html.

Or maybe these -> https://leapers.com/index.php?act=prod_detail&midx=2025&allids=1976_2023_2025&itemno=RG2W3154

What do yoy think, that are these compatible? I can't find specs or any dimensions about clearance what you mentioned anywhere.

Sorry I haven't chimed in earlier.
 I am using Burris Signature Zee medium rings with an SIII 6-24 on my Flex. Just enough clearance between scope and barrel that the Butler Creek cover clears with about 10 thousandths.
I use the Signature Zee's so the scope is optically "centered" when mounting and they do not mar your scope tube.
I don't know if the Flex receiver is the same as the Cobra though.

There are the rings I used (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077TMJ1P7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). They're 30 mm by 11 mm, but one inch ones are available.

The Flex, Warp, and Cobra all use the same breach assembly. As standard they all use a combination 11 mm and picatinny mounting arrangement. Jim will supply you a breach with just the picatinny if you so specify. Or, order as a replacement. They're $135 as I recall, but you better check with Jim.
