I would think if you have to get a tax stamp, it's a suppressor.

according to ATF regulations, if it even lowers the sound by one (1) decibel, then it is considered a suppressor and requires a tax stamp, fee and registration. doesn't matter whether the suppressor is intregal or an add-on type, if it reduces the sound it's a suppressor.

if you stick a 2 liter plastic soda bottle over the end of the barrel of a firearm and it reduces the sound, it's suppressor. anything that can reduce the sound, is a suppressor. if it's not registered with the ATF, then it's illegal.

Now...any idea if this would be legal in NY?

As far as I know, attachable supressors and threaded muzzles are a no-no..but this is integrally it removable??

Hot rifle! Even if I wanted to, I doubt it is legal to own such a gun in IL.
