4. Check the clarence between the threads in the suppressor and the rifle – it should be no slack between the suppressor and the rifle when screwed all the way in.
5. Check that the threads on the rifle barrel has a sufficient stop giving at least 1 mm shoulder (example; 16 mm rifle pipe should have maximum M14 treads)
6. Inspect and sight through the barrel from chamber with the suppressor fitted to confirm that the center axis of the suppressor and the rifle is aligned.
Shooting for the first time:
1. With the rifle unloaded and pointed in a safe direction, install the suppressor to the rifle, make sure it is firm but not overtightened.
2. Confirm the right caliber suppressor for your rifle
3. Inspect the bore and confirm that there is clear passage for the bullet

5. We recommend not to shoot the suppressor to warm although our Titanium suppressor is made of one piece and can withstand extreme temperatures without being damaged or weakened, the rifle may have its precision damaged if to hot. Further, metals expand when hot and this might in some cases and in some rifles, cause the suppressor to slightly loosen from the barrel.

2. Never store the rifle with the suppressor mounted for corrosion prevention as Titanium is high above the carbon steel in terms of corrosion resistance.

2. If the user should experience sot deposits inside the suppressor, it can be submersed into warm soap water for some time, or into a ultrasonic bath and the dried.
Inspect for any loose pieces of sot before use.
