Is we could have silencers what percentage of your rifles and handguns would be suppressed? (Meaning they would have the tax stamp on them and a threaded barrel)

I was under the impression that only the silencer needed the tax stamp.

I'd want a pistol silencer, maybe a silencer for a .22 (great for teaching newbies) and a Delisle replica. :D

I was at a gun show in NZ, they can own silencers. They cant think why we dont use them in the US (why they are illegal in places). Guess we have Hollywood to thank for that.

a supressor would most definatly make its way onto my HD g22. why suffer partial perminant hearing loss ( I already have horrid hearing) when its not nescisary anymore? I don't care if the courts would try and call me an assasin atleast I'll be able to hear their unfounded acusations.

The following rifles in my stable would have a suppressor:
*AR-15s
*M-14s
*.308 converted schmidt rubin bolt gun
*AK-47s
*SKS
*Sig P220
*Ruger 10/22


There would really not be a reason to outfit my C and R guns with suppressors.

Edited to add:
When we repeal the .50 bmg ban, i'll suppress my semi-auto barrett......

In all honestly to having silencers. They become quite expensive. With the $500+ price tag plus the $200 tax stamp for each silencer.. I don't think most of us would be able to afford one for each gun.

If they were "legal" to own, why couldn't you just manufacture your own and pay the illegal tax stamp.....suppressors are very simple tools that can be fabricated fairly cheaply.

That's true, but I think I'll take my chances with something 9mm (or more powerful) rather than a .22 lr for HD. :p Personally, I'm a fan of my Romy. More than enough power? Yep... that sounds just about right to me.

mothergreen
01-03-2008, 8:52 PM
I havn't researched any of it since I had no need to but I'm fairly certain that getting a .22 and .30 cal supressor would allow them to be attatched to anything .22 or .30 cal reguardless of the brass and powder behind it.

Why not suppress the Schmidt-Rubin? It is indeed a sweet shooter, with a little softer kick than my K-31s. It is light in weight and handling, more so than my m-14s and it would be great to hump around.....I can rack that straight pull with pie-plate accuracy pretty damn fast.

Hopi
01-03-2008, 9:17 PM
Remember, suppressors don't need to be made from welded metal. If I understand correctly, it is currently illegal to suppress a firearm with a blanket over the barrel. There are also ways to quietly discharge a firearm without a suppressor, using your 'target' as the baffle....

01-03-2008, 9:23 PM
I would say about 25%; however if no tax stamp was involved it would be 100%. I wouldn't use them to look cool. I would use them because I can hardly hear now.

While a crude expansion chamber type supressor with large baffles would be easy to fabricate, the larger the tolerances, the less supression achieved. Alignment is also a critical factor. Having a rifle bullet strike a baffle 2 feet in front of your face at 3000 fps does not sound like something I would like to experience.

It seems the easiest way to make a supressor is with a lathe. Everything stays centered and you can make the tube, baffles, end pieces and thread everything as needed. No need to weld.

Passage from a great book:

The Amnesty was going to allow registration of silencers without having to pay the tax, during the one month 'window'. That was why Henry was spending a great deal of time cutting and putting serial numbers
on various diameters and lengths of stainless steel aircraft tubing. He had decided that fifty would probably suffice for a lifetime supply, given his high-volume shooting habits. The outer tubes were what was
important. He could make the internals up later, as they were needed.
Stainless steel was a lot harder to cut than mild steel, and Henry was soon sweating again. Christ! Henry said to himself. Cutting off pieces of aircraft tubing and stamping numbers on them all weekend 'cause it's
the only time when you don't have to pay the Feds two hundred bucks for each one.

RANGER295
01-03-2008, 9:44 PM
I couldn’t put a percentage on it, but I would have at least one for .22, .30 cal, 9mm, .45, and maybe .40 cal and .38 cal. With the exception of a couple of odd ball things that I have, that covers all of the calibers that I own. I would just have to make sure that the threads fit for all of the different weapons. But come on… we are dreaming here.

01-03-2008, 9:51 PM
I voted 25% because I have a lot of handguns and many of them would be either un-wieldy with a can, or would be very difficult to fit a can.
Most of the rifles would end up being threaded though.

Of course I would end up with a few integrally supressed 22's as well as a few cans that would cover most of the rifles.

I was under the impression that only the silencer needed the tax stamp.

That's correct.

Most of my customers start with a 1/2-28 threaded 223 rated can.
They can use it on their AR's and on their 22's.
Then you get either a 9mm or a rimfire can.
The rimfire cans are lighter weight, but won't handle a 223...

You can handle many situations very well with about 5 cans total.

Well, for those like pushing the envelope......... I heard they're legal in CA and cant find much directly to say they aint but you could have a Hastings Barrel extension for yer' Shotgun right now.

From Cabellas website

Not only does this innovative 32", fully ported, screw-in barrel extension reduce the report of your shotgun by as much as 50% (more when using subsonic loads), it also substantially improves patterning. In fact, tests revealed consistent 85% patterns at 40 yards before the barrel was even fitted to accept choke tubes. At 1.1 pounds, it doesn't add excess forward weight. And the barrel extension disappears completely behind the bead, free from your line of sight. Extension tube is threaded for same choke tube as the factory weapon it is installed on. Installation wrench is included. Blued finish.


problem is-- its LONNNNNNNNNNNNG,

but for $130 I've thought about it a couple of times.

I have a quick question. I know that making them and possessing them and using them is highly illegal. What if you coach someone ie. give them some ideas and pointers, give them some of the materials that they are going to use, but never have anything to actually do with making it and never use it? Could you get in trouble for that. I am talking a situation where someone comes to you and says “I am making a suppressor and I know you have some knowledge about that type of thing. Could you give me some pointers.” And the materials would just be raw materials that you had sitting around as scrap, nothing that was remotely previously destined for this kind of project.

If we could have silencers, there'd be a lot less noise pollution at the ranges and on hunting trips. Because hearing damage is accumulated gradually, people don't realize when they're being injured.

Here are some common calibers and their respective decibel levels from some popular barrel lengths.

well for starters they are supressors not silencers. silencers are sound effects used in movies :D its ironic that in brittan the few people who do have firearms are encouraged to have supressors for that very reason, noise pollution. the fearmongering anti's think supressors are only for assasins so they are affraid of them.

I took the hearing test. Problems at 3 and 4 and 8 kHz. But, that's why I wearing aids when I'm watching tv. Not when I'm shooting. Then I wear swimmer's ear plugs and hearing muffs. I bought some electronic ones believing they would do a better job, but they actually affected my hearing for a few days. Back to the cheap muffs; no problem other than the damage I already have.

Hearing damage due to the hearing muffs provided by the dept. when we shot PPC. Guess my ears were more sensitive as everyone wore the same equipment.:(

Supressors are regulated as NFA firearms and ARE legal in 33 of the 50 states. If you live in a free state and file the form-4 you can apply to make the supressor just as you would file the form-4 to make a SBR.

Information for making a supressor and the physics behind it are all over the web. www.silencertests.com (http://www.silencertests.com) is a good source for information and tons of pictures.


nope they don't but pvc pipe would be boardering on lunacy.. of course you wouldn't have the issue shonc is talking about since the bullet would fly right thru your pvc baffles.

If the bullet strikes a baffle inside the tube the results can be catastrophic. Probably not so much in a 22LR but in a 9mm or rifle it could be deadly. Making a supressor out of PVC wouldn't be impossible but the first chamber would need to be rather large to contain the pressure. There are some designs which use rubber wipes which have a smaller diameter than the bullet. Wipes wear out pretty fast and the design is more of a throw away design.



Tactical Innovations sells many different 22LR cans and has pictures on their website of the "K" baffles (the most common)

In some countries the enviromentalist/liberals have made silencers on firearms mandatory just like a muffler on a car.

That actually makes more sense than banning them because some cop saw a movie where the bad guy had them therefore it is a bad guy tool, lets ban them.

You could make the same argument about cars, as getaway cars are left idling in front of banks, no one can hear them committing their crime so they get away with it. With a muffler ban you could hear the idling get away car in the bank and get suspicious and hit the silent alarm.

I think we should ban mufflers on cars to stop crime in its tracks.:D

I don't have much use for a 32" long choke tube.

That choke tube would be quite impractical for me.

I personally wouldn't dink with this thing... BATFE says anything (ANYTHING) that lowers the report of the weapon by ONE DECIBEL...yes ONE decibel... can be considered a "suppressor" and can be used as a charge against you. This is why you can't have an XM177 moderator w/out a tax stamp (even tho the gun is still FRICKEN loud even w/the XM177 moderator, especially the E1 style)...

IMHO, the screw-on nature of the "choke tube", along with the fact they readily claim it lowers the report, makes the choke tube a no-go...I wouldn't be surprised if they get told to stop selling them (atkins accelerator anyone?)

Thats just my IMHO tho.

It is just a longer barrel. people get longer barrels all the time, particularly for .22 rifles, for the sole purpose of having a quieter firearm, especially in close-quarter shooting with subsonics for small vermin and the like.

People have seen too many movies where a weapon which is suppressed only gives off the sound of the slide racking.

Far from the truth and the legislature really should just pass a standard minimum level before a tax stamp is required. This would enable pretty much every BOOM stick to be supressed and prevent hearing loss while still allowing people to hear somebody shooting.

I wouldn't mind one on a home defense gun but when i'm at the range I like to feel the kaboom.

Yeah it might be cool on a .22, but part of the fun of shooting, is the feedback of the weapon, with sound being a large factor.

Any gun loud enough to damage my hearing (read: ALL)

Suppressed guns are more fun. Usually more accurate. Generally more pleasant to shoot. Draws a crowd, gets some interesting attention.

for a 22 all you need is a 10/22 with subsonic rounds. thats not loud at all

Well, I'm a musician so I'm totally paranoid about my hearing. I always double up on ear protection, and if anyone knows how to triple up on ear protection, let me know. So, if suppressors were legal here, they'd be on every single one of my guns. I've always been confused at why suppressors aren't legally used more often to reduce noise pollution, which will always be a bigger problem than suppressed James Bond style assassinations.

Depends on price & availability. Most likely just one .223 suppressor to share between the ARs, and one 9mm silencer to split between my Colt and the Glock I'd have to buy.

I'd love one for my .22s, rifles and guns, my 9mm and 45s... just because saving my hearing is important...
