Here I thought Willfully Armed was talking about a FLASH Suppressor, Not a NOISE suppressor (AKA silencer). Oh! Silly Me!

I'm lost here. Many people seem to own noise suppressing devices on their .22s. I've always considered these to be noise suppressors. I've also thought the term noise suppressor, could be used synonymously with silencer.

I do understand the difference between a flash suppressor, and a device that lessens noise. What is the difference between a noise suppressor, and a silencer?

As always facts are best.
For this discussion we go to the ruling body. The good ole' boys at the ATF.

The word silencer, when used as the primary definition.
Silencer http://www.atf.gov/firearms/guides/importation-verification/firearms-verification-nfa-silencer.html

Suppressor when used refers to Flash Suppressor.

Today, when most people talk about getting a suppressor, they are referring to a sound suppressor. These days, "Suppressor" is just another name, (but not official) for a silencer. Other names used are can or firearm muffler

A suppressor by definition (Dictionary), supresses, reduces or other wise minimizes.
The question is what is suppressed. A flash, A sound, A tongue?

Suppressor by itself is ambiguous, but in context can be clear.
In the context of reducing the rifle's report, then it obviously is one of sound.

And yes..... Suppressor is the commonly used term for a sound suppressor, or silencer. When dealing with the ATF or Hoss, please refer to this as a NFA Silencer.

Only accessories a 22 needs is a scope , suppressor and ammo.
Okay, I'm not very knowledgeable on this subject but dressing up a gun like that, can't it be compared to getting a car and dressing it up? Not all additions on a car make it run faster but it sure can make it look purdy.

I'd say about $800 + one is a Class 3 item and all NFA rules apply
