Of course it is. Legality does not fall on the firearm, its on the suppressor.

I would think one shot and the suppressor would be totaly fouled. Black Powder would load the baffles very fast.

Besides the problems with fouling, the problem is that under the NFA, a SUPPRESSOR is a firearm. THAT is what gets registered- not the gun it is attached to.

So then you could theoretically make a blackpowder SBR?

It is not that it is black powder- it is that it uses loose ball and powder (muzzleloader) OR was made prior to 1899 that makes it an antique. However, to give you a straight answer, I would have to go look at the 1934 NFA. They DO fall outside the 1968 GCA, but will not swear they are totally outside the NFA.

The fellow is using a blank round to a fire a bullet. Besides bordering on stupid what is your point ? Blank powder runs very high pressures. I hope no one trys this stunt.

As for SBRs there is no Federal law on attaching shoulder stocks to BP handguns. You may buy and own Colt replicas with detachable shoulder stocks. There are some states that control BP arms so check your state laws before using SBR muzzle loaders. Breech loading firearms loaded with black powder does not avoid the law. The rule on SBR firearms is applied to breech loading cartridge firearms not the type of powder.

Ummm- don't think that was a blank. Looked like he was using a primed case to ignite the 3 pellets of Pyrodex.

And no, THAT in the video is not exempted. Although it uses loose powder and ball, it is READILY convertible to modern ammo (replace the upper)
