I'll also add another 5 cents worth. The scam here isn't by the makers of this product; the scam is by the feds, who have driven up the price of making and buying and registering silencers and put the fear of a kevlar panty raid into American citizens. There are plenty of rural people across the country who would like to target shoot and hunt varmits on their property without disturbing their neighbors. The 3D gun hoopla is another example of a product created due to the feds, not because it was a natural evolution of gun design or a better product.

About the only thing they can be used on would be AR type rifles as the filter is so large that you could not see your sights on most rifles. The sights sit very high on AR's so they should be fine. Though I would assume they would be best with sub-sonic loads which would not likely cycle the action on 223's.

1/2x28 is typical threading on most 22 barrels and ar15's.

You can buy surefire quick detach suppressors adaptors which come in muzzle brake and flash hider formats and are intended for attaching a suppressor. This device is there act same thing. Totally legal until you put an unregistered suppressor on the end.

No legal diff tween this thing and the surefire muzzle brake on the end of my ar15.

I'll have to add that IMHO, this has got to be an obvious attempt at skirting the law. Come on, now; who really is going to complain about the smell of gun solvents, or whatever? Those people should just take up knitting. Everything about guns is loud, messy, dangerous and dirty. If it wasn't, it wouldn't be fun, now, would it?

I bet you dollars for doughnuts that the people who are wrongfully imprisoned over authorities' misinterpretation (purposely or not) of the law far outnumbers the "folks who try to "outsmart" the laws."

hell, something like one in six people in prison are there because of pot! Now if that isn't a crime there are none.

Unfortunately, shooters who are married to a non-shooter have a much harder time of it. either you clean in the house and risk a ruined carpet (which is how this got started, BTW) or cleaning in inclement weather. If it's a 100 degrees or 10 degrees, the guns suffer because they don't get cleaned outside. The solvent trap keeps shooters and non-shooters living in perfect harmony!

I guess in that sense you could call this a "marital Aid."

Call it what you may, it is still a blatant attempt at skirting the law.

Before you start flaming me...The law is stupid, unconstitutional, controlling, Draconian, outdated, and unconstitutional (yea I typed that part twice). Good for them if they get away with it. Boo if they are forced to hand over their customer list.

Unfortunately you are spot on correct about that. On the plus side one can be made very easily with minimal tools.

Robo, no reason to flame you! We all try to at least stay out of trouble by following the letter, if not the spirit, of the law. But when BATFE has been kept in the loop all the way from development to actual sales to the public, how much more law-abiding can you be? The only thing illegal is the actual firing of rounds through an unregistered can (filter). It's like owning a car that goes 150 MPH - if you always drive it below the speed limit, it doesn't matter what it is capable of! And I don't mean this to be double talk - there is no winking or nudging going on here.

Anyone wishing to can contact Tom at this link ("Contact Us" at bottom of page) and he can provide proof of BATFE knowledge and approval. The last thing I would do is steer someone into a grey area where I thought they could be fined or arrested. That's the main reason I responded was because I was intimately familiar with the extensive registration attempts with BATFE to avoid any problems and didn't want members to get hurt.

All I can say is "Thank God BATF does not regulate cars".
