Oil filter suppressors actually work well. Great SHTF idea.

I'll start with the coffee grinder stock. I guess it served a purpose at the time, just seems strange in current times.
It may seem strange in current times but back then the Army as today ran on coffee and back then coffee was whole bean, not pre-ground. In fact during the Spanish-American War someone forgot to pack any coffee mills and the troops were authorized to use the butts of their SAA revolvers to mill the coffee beans. So if you come across a SAA 7 1/2" with some odd marks on the butt, it might have been used as a substitute coffee mill.

I think there are 5 known Sharps Coffee Mill rifles and the last one sold that I know of sold for over $300k. How do I know this, my former Father-in-Law collected coffee mills and said I would be in his good graces if I could find one for him. A friend of his, a retired Army Col (deceased), wrote a book on the history of coffee mills that included an Army photo of troops using their SAAs cracking coffee beans.

The thinking at the time was by having a coffee mill in the buttstock it would save having to tie up precious cargo space for the coffee mills. These rifles never made it out of prototype stage though.

Too bad the ATF considers any part of a suppressor to be a complete suppressor. Can't have the adapter with the serial # be the tax stamp item but each oil filter has to be serial numbered, $200 oil filters get expensive. But it was a great idea before the ATF said no.
