    I have a 2nd generation Micro Roni Stabilizer, but since I acquired suppressors, I really didn’t want to shoot without one.


    Some options included removing the Flash Hider and using a Dremel to cut the frame. That is something I wasn’t comfortable doing.


    I saw a video on YouTube, by Solscud, and I wanted to keep it as a pistol.


    So I ordered a 10” barrel By IGB out of YRS Inc. I acquired my Gen 3 Glock 19 for free apart from the Humpty Dumpty Glock Story.


    I took the brace off and slid the Glock right into it.

    First thing I did was remove my suppressor sights so I could use them for something else.


    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Then I polished the feedramp in the barrel.


    For the Micro Roni Stabilizer , it requires removal of the brace to fit the Glock into it.


    If you get a 16” barrel, you have to take the whole Roni apart by removing the rail and opening the clamshell to push a long barrel from one end.


    For the 10”, the Glock will fit right into after removal of the brace. The brace is secured by two screws, and a plastic pin. Under the securing latch, there is a button and a detent spring.[​IMG][​IMG]


    I’m going to shoot it Suppressed today.


    Before this, I considered a Ruger PC Carbine 9 mm, Keltec Sub 2000, AR 9 mm. But I already had a spare Glock and the Roni. The spare Glock was free (See Humpty Dumpty Glock thread). I have had the Micro Roni for a while.


    The barrel was $187, shipped.


    As for how it will run, I saw this video by someone else today...Glock 17 10” Barrel Suppressed:





    Someone mentioned that there were shorter barrels available in 6” so that is an option. I know IGB has a 7.5” option. You need a longer barrel to clear the flash hider in front of the Roni.


    On the YRS INC site, the Roni Stabilizer is going for $200. I paid $335 but it was just released back then.

    So I Shot 50 rounds of 147 grain Lawman today. I had only one FTE without the Can. But with the Can I had some issues.

    I’m thinking I need lighter springs, and I should have considered that. Anyways I ordered 13 and 15# springs. I’ll see how that goes.

    This WILL work, one way or another. I’ve done a lot of work on cycling subsonic ammo on many of my guns, now.

    To recap: The lighter recoil spring didn’t work (13 pounds). Shooting unsuppressed had one FTE Of 10).

    So I took this:

    [​IMG]

    Cut it away from 10:00-2:00 to allow the barrel to clear.

    You can see the barrel when the slide is cocked back, that it doesn’t contact the Concussion device.

    I am a doctor, not a machinist so it isn’t pretty.


    So now, I hope I can make this :

    Recently, I wanted to modify this for Suppressor use.


    In summary, I tried different brands of ammo, but the Roni as it stood, was not working with the suppressor. I was getting FTE after FTE. It was OK without a can (limited test of 10 with 1 FTE)...


    Thanks to Solscud for his YouTube video to give me the idea to disassemble the Roni and use a long barrel, and LOS from AR15DotCom to suggest cutting parts of the Roni of which I cut.

    You see the rub point on the dorsal barrel margin.


    [​IMG]


    I took off the excess steel, but questions were raised if the barrel would still contact the concussion device.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    It was not pretty, either.


    [​IMG]


    I mounted it onto my Bench vise and I let the dremel have its way. Because of the protruding end of the Concussion device I was just going to cut it first, then trim the edges.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    I sanded and polished the near finished piece.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    The daunting task of reassembly was intimidating.


    [​IMG]


    Because the rail screws did not loosen I did not bother removing them.


    I placed the detent spring of the rail release and pushed the parts together, and I hammered with a plastic mallet.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    The rest was easy


    [​IMG]


    I now have clearance for the barrel.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    So I went from this:

    To this:

    Additionally, I did the following:

    I used a Dremel to open the port of the Roni, and I also widened the Concussion device or aluminum muzzle of the enclosure.

    I cleaned the suppressor using my ultrasonic cleaned, and I used lithium grease/Teflon.

    I lubricated the Glock, and I used a 15# recoil spring.

    Thanks to LOS of AR15dot com for feedback along the way.

    I also scoured the forums about shooting Glocks suppressed, in general, and a lighter recoil spring was a part of that puzzle. I have the factory 17 or 18 (not sure), 15 and 13 lb springs on hand.

    Now I’m off to zero and test accuracy...

    It has been an evolution and a growing experience.
