And don't forget to change the "filter" every 2500 to 3000 rounds or so, depends on how hard its used.

Weird, I know. But if, God forbid, I have to shoot someone, I expect making noise doing it will be the very least of my worries.

The title "Much Ado About Nothing" comes to mind when I read threads like this.

and properly made suppressor is way more exotic than a muffler.

now you can do whatever floats your boat in regards to putting a homemade suppressor on one of your firearms and that's your business. but here on this forum, they do frown upon people promoting or talking about doing thins illegally. just something to think about.
The oil filter suppressor is an interesting concept, but I kind of have to agree with these 2 on the subject. If I have to shoot, noise is the last thing I am worried about. If it has to be quiet, I own a bow, and a crossbow.

that doesn't mean I'm not interested in buying an suppressor if I move into a state where they are allowed, but even then, the oil filter version would just be a sh!ts and grins thing.

Now, food for thought on Axxe's post. Has it dawned on anyone else here that you may be giving tips on how to build a backyard "silencer" on a forum that is public where anyone can see it? Not necessarily illegal, but not something I would advise. The alphabet soup in D.C. could misinterpret what your intent may be, and we could ALL be in hot water because of it.

Not a lawyer, just trying to pass the word on. CYA.

Technology today, can eliminate any sound, at the source with a microphone, speaker, and a computer driven amp to precisely measure the sound, and instantly flood the sound with the sound waves that cancel out the sound. With a sub sonic round, not generating a sonic boom the length of the trajectory, such a device, would render any firearm 100% whisper quiet.

A pin drop would be louder.

This device, not touching the gun in any way, would be an interesting interpretation of batf rules about sound supressors.

They use simular sound surpession systems in some high end cars,

As to guns... the down side is it would be large (think $500 dollar cars with their $3,000 boom boom amp), heavy, not portable, and power requirements...
Basically it although doable would require a small trailer load of equipment to make it practical, but still not very concealable.

Funny, I was wondering the same thing. Would that be the regular change schedule, or the "severe duty" one?

Another good question is in my evil black rifle that shoots those horrid heat seeking, thermo nuclear warhead tipped ammunitions would it be better to run synthetic or just a straight 30 weight?

I'm an FFL 'SOT Dealer.I have some experience with the adapter and oil filter 'cans'
Yeah, they work as far as decibel reduction to an extent, but forget about using sights or anyhting close to accuracy(on a pistol in particular) unless you mount it on a long gun with extra high rings, you may be able to aim over the can
My 2 centavos: If you want a suppressor, buy it through your local Class III Dealer and do it right.
Before all of the recent pointless shootings we have experienced in the past year, The NFA was planning to make silencers an AOW
You would still have to pay the $5 transfer tax, for an AOW, which is reasonable compared to Class III $200 transfer stamp,but you would do the paperwork and pay the Dealer and be able to walk out with your new silencer.Since all the gun control bull,I have not heard any further talk about making silencers AOW's.They should be
