a sound suppressor fulfills 3 roles. a high end suppressor will totally eliminate flash, it will function better than a dedicated muzzle brake , and it reduces the muzze blast of a gun shot. the better the supressor the better it will function in all categories.

you CAN build your own if you apply for a stamp and receive one then you can make one suppressor per stamp. your better off buying one as there is a LOT of high tech research and development that goes into making a high performance long lasting sound suppressor.

with suppressors it is generally very true you get what you pay for.

Yeah a few things wrong there. A YHM sound suppressor for a.223 can be had for about $659.00 including the stamp. They go up from there. Handgun suppressors can actually be more expensive than you might think, depending on the make and caliber. The .223 is a good option to silence just because there are more manufacture options now.

here, go shopping :http://www.impactguns.com/silencers.aspx

Okay, so so far it seems like sound suppressors would be the mor popular choice.. i would actually be attempting to put it on a custombuilt rifle chambered for .458 Socom so it may make the selection a little slimmed to say the least but i would be grateful to hear of some good names to keep an eye out for even if the .458 selection isn't huge

.458 socom? silenced? holy god. Yeah, I'll go out on a limb and say that ones gonna be pricy...It'll probably be a custom job if anyone will do it for you. I haven't ever heard of a silencer for that round.

Yeah, very pricey.. i've heard of them plenty of times but i've never heard of a company selling them.. But then again, after the cost it'll take to build the rifle the silencer will seem like chump change

I bought one 9mm suppressor (SWR Trident9 including) from silencershop.com for $474 including shipping. One of the cheapest one i could find. And im still waiting for another 2-3 months for the tax stamp. And yesterday i just submitted another paperworks for YHM Phantom SS QD suppressor which i bought from my local dealer. So this year ill be looking for new toys.
FYI, try using NFA trust for nfa items. Google "nfa trust" for more info.
