9.5 barrel, 300blk.
Will be awhile before I get a chance to shoot it.
Do have a questions for the general membership here;
What spares should I try to get? What silencer is recommended?

I run an OG SiCo Omega on my 9.5 300blk. It works very well on setting 3.

Why didn’t you form one a pistol version. Approvals on SBR form 1s are coming back in under 14 days right now.

For an e-file it's less than 2 weeks? Man, can't wait to see what that jumps to once Biden's brace ban goes into effect (and loses in court or courts refuse to hear it).

Form 1 e-file has been around longer than e-file for form 4, and it’s been 7-26 day turnaround for a while. It appears to be a separate queue and separate team of examiners. Form 4s e-file is currently around 8 months although there are some signs that there are new examiners being added, and the paper form 4 backlog is nearly done.

I share Sean’s notion that if the brace rule goes into effect, the backlog of e-filed form 1s may drastically increase the wait. I’ve been waffling between filing form 1s while the short wait time remains and waiting to see what happens, since the brace rule has once again been postponed.

Slight derailing but IMO, the brace ban will die a quiet death.
What spares would you guys recommend to try to run down. Haven't had any luck contacting RA.
I'd try and find a spare parts kit (all the misc. little springs, firing pin, etc.)....RA should have them or Kermit here on the board.

to piggy back on what everyone has already said, SPK + everything bro, including another identical gun.

You have to accept that this is a little boutique shop run by an eccentric human being......the whole circus could vanish into the aether at any given second.

If I were doing my 300blk again, I’d get an energetic armament Vox K. That thing is shockingly quiet on subs. Especially with the wipe.

If you plan to shoot supers as well and want the absolute quietest gun available, go with the standard Vox and watch their video on how to make your own wipes.

Wipes are the easiest way to improve on quiet, but aren't long lasting enough for the effort IMO. My Wolfman is super quiet on my Sig MPX especially with the wipe installed, but only for about one magazine.
My main concern is I'm dealing with a new system and want to make sure that there aren't any problems with specific silencers. Prefer not to go the HUX (OSS)/flow through route as it seems to create a fairly large cloud in front of the muzzle (at least it seems so on AK's).

Energetic armament has a description on how to make their wipes. Ridiculously easy with parts easily obtained from McMaster Carr.

You and me both. Plus, not that I sell anything, but factory SBR's are way more sellable than Form 1 SBR's.
Is that actually clear? The reason I ask is that a Form 1 SBR can be easily removed from the registry, remove the stock, and sold immediately as a pistol for fast transfer. I’m not certain that a factory SBR can be removed from the registry, and if you sell an NFA item as a NFA item, it’s definitely harder than selling a non-NFA pistol.
I get it from the perspective that people might prefer things that are original as from the factory—I know that I would.

You’re confusing form 1 for Form 4, kind of.

If you Form 1 an SBR, you have to engrave the receiver with your name as you are the manufacturer of the SBR.

A Form 4 has no such engraving.

These “spare parts kits” are something that the dealers and Robinson have not had available recently—I’ve been looking for such a kit, too.
I realize that....but that would indicate that you need to contact RA directly and ask them to make more.
