Don't like the orange, paint it.

Don't ask me how I know they work 'cause I won't answer.

How about Pfffffffffffffffft.
I lik the oil filter Ideah. Thats good to know.

Dont worry guys If I wasnt going to go the leagl route , then I would have never asked about them on an open forum for all to see.

Thanks for all of your advice I just didnt know if they where the same and what was on the inside that mae them different.

We have a guy hear in Nebraska that sells them for a reasonable cost and can get the well made ones as long as the less inexpensive ones.
He specializes in them. Reaper Arms is the name his company is called.

Silencers are like a car muffler. You can get an expensive one at Auto Zone or a cheap one at Midas. They all do the same thing at different prices. It comes down to the wrapper and what you want the thing to look like.....lol

Re: ++++Silencer/Suppresor++++ ????????

I wanted to know more about them too. You can make your own (legally) as long as your state allows possession, but you still have to get the stamp for it.

Here is a site that should answer just about all your questions, from forms to suppliers and even designs and performance.
SilencerTalk • Index page

Anything that is used to attenuate a firearm is considered a suppressor, and is regulated by the batfe under federal law. An adapter that is made to allow a oil filter to be used as a suppressor is considered a suppressor under federal law, and big fines and the big house are the penalty. There was a firefighter that used a 2-liter bottle taped to a 22 to silence the gun so he could shoot his dogs, all so he could go on vacation. As far as I heard, no federal charges were brought on him.

edit; the suppressor only works on the expanding gasses. It will do nothing about the sonic crack of a supersonic bullet, unless you slow that bullet down to subsonic velocities.

You said a mouthfull. While I would never encourage anyone to utilize a Fram Extra-Guard as a muffler, it can be done, easily, but thats between you and your auto parts store.....

The firefighter should have his personal hose clamped in a vise IMO. I really dislike anyone who does harm to a domesticated animal, especially dogs. I like my dogs more than most people I know.

There are a buch of other, much less obnoxious things that can be used bit I won't get into that on a public forum.

Lets just say that I've experimented in the privacy of my own compound.

tinman, you mentioned "sonic crack" of a supersonic bullet. I guess a supressor on a .338 lapua or .300 Ultra would only supress the noise to were you would not give away your location say from 1000 to 1600 yards out ? Could a person shoot one on these 2 guns that I have mentioned , without loaded beyond supersonic ? Just wondering.....
