This website caught my eye as I was stumbling through the internet. I actually had a threaded barrel in my cart ready to purchase until I realized...it ain't going to do me good unless I can buy the suppressor too.....I still might get it just to be a "gear queer". Anyway, it looks like a great site to keep in your queue for when you or someone else needs something of this sort.

This isn't too bad an idea if you plan to get a supressor anyway. A good thing about buying a barrel from the supressor manufacturer is that you are more likely to get a barrel whose threads are cut to match the bore, not just the outside diameter of the barrel.

I know a guy that owns a couple of these suppressors. i have attended a seminar they put on. They are good suppressors, my only beef with the company is they sent out an open faced post card supplying information about the purchaser, where they purchased the suppressor, and what type of suppressor. Might not be a big deal to some, I do not like the idea of all that information going through the mail for any eyes to look at.

I sort of agree, however those that you would need to worry about bothering you (agencies of the government) already have it. Plus I don't mind a few catalogs and ads for weapons. I sign up for some of them. But I do get your point and understand why it would make some nervous.

I looked at gemtech, but when I purchased my suppressor, I went with Yankee Hill Machinery. I had the opertunity to test fire at the shop I went to... It was VERY impressive.

I'm planning to get one for my M4gery and another one for my DPMS LR 308 (that I don't have yet). Both will be AAC supressors. Now if I could just sell enough crack to get the 5300 bucks for the cans and rifle. I really need to get those membership dues from my cult members.

I can buy them, but I have to have a C&R license first. I don't get it.

we can own them, we can place them on our rifles, but don't you dare fire your weapon suppressed, that will be more than 1 timeout for you young man!!!

So the people in washington just go next door to idaho or oregon and enjoy the volume switch.

I plan on getting a Threaded Barrel and Suppressor also in due time. I checked a bit on Virginia's laws and found out I can legally get a Suppressor which in my case is AWESOME!!! As far as legalities go I can own and gun as long as it is NOT the Armsel Stryker...Striker...you get what I mean lol. Anyways a Threaded Barrel and a Suppressor will be nice for my 1911 for the simple reason my ears are sensitive anyways and well the "Smack" of the sound wave from my 1911 hurts a bit. A Small suppressor would be nice on cutting down the decibel level a bit and would be manageable in a CC situation I am sure as I am 100% sure a threat isnt gonna let me put plugs in my ears before I shoot back so Im sure I make a good point...maybe....ok....not sure... Its just what my mind is telling me to say.

A bit of advice, if your not going to wear Muff's then at least use plugs....

Seriously, over time you will regret not doing so...

Yep ISD

I know that. The first time I shot my .45 I went semi deaf in my left ear for about 3 hours. I mean seriously one single shot and it felt like someone open up my ear and punched my eardrum. I have wore plugs ever since when shooting it. My other guns like my 12 and .410 and ofcourse my .22 dont bother me though....the .45 on the other hand will wake ya neighbors miles down the road haha.

Snake..

Runs is right for sure, didn't think about the eyes...

People bitch at the range up until the time they see all the pieces of lead and copper jackets that are all over the floor behind them and at their feet...

Besides that, 22's blow all kinds of shit out the ejection port....

I admit

I have never worn safety glasses while shooting. Well really never had anny lead or residue come back on me while shooting. All my guns EXCEPT the .45 are all manual Action. Which you all know what that means as it has to be manually cocked. My .45 is the only Semi I have. My 12 is a pump,my .22 is bolt action and my .410 is a single shot.

In any case I will wear my safety glasses from now on. Thanks for the tip guys.

Silencer laws question

Can one of y'all answer a hypothetical question. Suppose I had a silencer for one of my rifles. An old rifle from the 30s that had a Maxim silencer before the NFA or GCA.
Then let's say that this rifle was inherited down to me from my grandfather. If the silencer was never registered and the there is no tax stamp or other document regarding this, it is illegal contraband, right? Hypothetically, what would I do?

Hmmmm

well hell, I am betting it would either end up having to register it at least under CR or they would confiscate it?

Hell they might decide it is ok as long as it is never attached when firing the weapon...

I'd just keep quiet and it ain't no ones business until such time as I researched it and knew what the outcome from trying to make it legal was discovered......

hypothetical speaking and all that..

SHHHH....

If what were to ever occur? As far as everyone is concerned... Nothing about firearms and suppressors from the 30's that has never been registered was ever mentioned. I know, I know... I'm stupid, I just can't help myself.

Is it true

that certain suppressors can be adjusted to give different performance levels for different firearms?

The only thing I generally know about suppressors is that when you get either water or a certain jell (not sure what the jell is called at the moment) inside the suppressor it makes it even more quiet. But, that doesn't work with all suppressors.

Yes I have heard that suppressors have multiple Partitions that are moist. I always thought the moisture in the suppressor was to cut down muzzle flash though. Didnt know it actually had anything to do with the decibel level.
