Well, I finally got my MAC 10 with the original two stage suppressor. Decided to first put one round through it. I guess those 20 plus year old wipes were brittle because it blew 'em out or sort of powderized 'em. Now there's about a 50 plus caliber hole in the wipes. It looks like there are two wipes spaced apart and the wipes look about a quarter inch thick. This is all new to me so please bear with me. Can I buy new wipes or do I have to make them ( urethane ) ? Also, the suppressor cap has a knurled edge but no holes for a wrench. That sucker is righty tighty so how do I get it apart? Thanks from a MG newbie.

The endcap is standard, righty tighty.
You can make the wipes, you just can't have extras lying around.
Make the two you need and keep some material around uncut.
When the old ones wear out, cut them into 4 pieces and make some more.
That is the only legal way from what I understand.
I just went down to the hardware store and picked up some rubber washers with a .25" inner hole and stacked a couple up to get the correct thickness. That way I don't have to make any and they are readily available.
I really like mine.
I have a MAC 10/45 and it is the schiznet. I have a MAX-10 on order from Lage.
Makes it a slow fire comparable to an MP5.

Thanks! As a matter of fact, I'm on the Max 10 slow fire waiting list myself. I have bookmarked that suppressor thread so I won't lose it.

You can punch out new wipes yourself but why not send it in and get the internals updated? If not all the guts, at least get an A2 end cap that replaces the end cap with wipes for one that has permanent baffles in it. Gemtech and AWC can do this, among others.

Gemtech no longer updates MAC series suppressors. They referred me to G Man Weaponry last month.

AWC will rebuild it but it is turned into a sealed can.
For me that was a deal breaker.
FWIW I like the idea of being able to take apart the suppressor.
