Default oil filter silencer

So has anybody heard of these. I found it pretty interesting. As long as you register the adapter and pay the 200 dollar tax stamp through the ATF its legal and a heck of a lot cheaper than a real one. It just looks retarded. They have videos of them on YouTube. I haven't figured out how to post a link on my phone so if someone could I would appreciate it.

I have a mechanic shop in Alabama so I guess I'm sitting on around 500 different sized silencers. Now all I got to do is get me one of them adapters and I can try it out. Even though I could just make my own adapter I think I'll pass on jail time and do it legal though. Wouldn't want to get the loud knock on the door.

i hear ya! but they do seem pretty effective though. you could always paint them flat black and make them look more tactical!

can't paint it black, then it would be dangerous.

So many things are going through my mind right now. Where would you find a holster? How can you conceal a Fram under summer clothes? How long would it be effective? Still, if you just have to have a suppressor it seems like a cheap way to go.

Yeah I don't think this is any kind of specops certified gear, but just ****s and giggles. It's kinda neat.

Better check with you local and state ordnance first . Just because you can pay, register and wait 6 months for approval doesnt mean you can own it . Here in IL we cannot legally own a suppressor sad sad day

Afraid you are all missing the obvious point here.

Find a USED filter. One with oil still in it.

Running wet it should be much quieter. Point it straight up, and the lube needs for your firearm are met. So simple, really......















Please note: The above IS intended as a joke, and should NOT be attempted except by those that should not reproduce.

Great. Now we'll need an ATF form for motor oil purchases.
