a $200. tax stamp for something that amounts to nothing more than a federally controlled thread adapter... something you can buy for your home plumbing at any hardware store for less than 5 bucks...

Yes they work, are bulky to use, and is cheap other than the tax stamp that is...

The threads involved have nothing to do with plumbing.

A couple things: 1. The 1/2-28 threads are odd ball big time outside of the gun world. Most machine shops font even have them unless they have made muzzle brakes or something of the like before. 2. There are hundreds of different size filters out there. As far as sighting the weapon goes, all you have to so is find a filter with a low enough profile. I've already picked out the filter I will use on my AR once I get the adapter and all the paperwork squared away. It is a small diameter filter but it's 6 inches long and has a dual filter element in it. I've done a mock up by just holding the filter up to the end of the barrel to see if I can still use my sights and it is perfect. As for a pistol, you probably wouldn't be doing competition shooting with it anyways. You would be able to get it close with good hand eye coordination.

The adapter I saw was about $75. The filter is about $5 and the tax is $200. On a bud's 22 pistol (not in Illinois) from about 10' away all I could hear was "click, click, click". I have acreage and timber; if I ever decide to try one out it will be where I can't be found. When they can start tracking down all of the thugs in Chicago then they can be concerned about me.

Not trying to be an ass but don't forget that even though we ( for the most part) are all of like mind here, this is an openly viewable forum so be careful what is written. Don't want anyone to have a post come back and bite them.

On another note suppressors are not really that difficult to make. Ever see the 80s or 90s video on YouTube where the guy makes one out of electrical conduit, washers, and a nut that fits a .22 threaded barrel? It only cost like $5 and you can get it all at lowes.

I can walk into Lowe's or Menard's, head to the plumbing section, pick up a 1/2' to 1" female to male threaded adapter any day of the week for under the stated $5.00 mark, Physically other than the pipe threads they are no different than this oil can adapter, well maybe a higher quality steel but other than that nada...

When you assemble it, that's when Johnny comes knockin.
If you own an AR 15 and M16 parts kit, you are in constructive posession of a machine gun. Reguardless of weather or not you put them together.

The oil filter suppressor is a suppressor, registered with the ATF. It's completely legit to own one, and or to make one on a Form 1. However, if you change the filter, you must have a license to manufacture NFA Firearms. You as a private citizen are NOT allowed to change the filter, even if you built it on a form 1.

Stupid? Yeah. It really cuts down on the utility for this "suppressor."

That is exactly what I said. The threads involved have NOTHING to do with plumbing.
One is pipe thread and one is machine thread. I fully agree with you that the actual metal piece that we we are talking about looks remarkably similar to a standard pipe bushing.

you will not find an adapter with the same threads as the end of your barrel at any plumbing or hardware store. The threads are completely different from anything used in plumbing or any other hardware item. I've been a mechanic since I could pick up a wrench and I haven't ever seen a bolt or pipe or anything that has 1/2-28 threads. Now if you wanted to, (it would be illegal so don't) you could go by a pipe fitting with the female hole just smaller than the hole you would need for your barrel threads and drill it out. Then you could go online and order a tap for 1/2-28 threads and tap the hole you just drilled and it would work.
