    Is it really possible to make an improvised suppressor? With like a cola can or water bottle? If so is it legal?

    No it is not legal. It is possible to improvise one, but a water bottle or soda can ain't gonna take that abuse. And your don't want to go to jail over a water bottle or soda can.

    A little paperwork, 200 dollar tax stamp, plus purchase price, is a very small price to pay compared to the consequences.

    Are those the requirements to buy a suppressor?

    What trip said is pretty much it. It's possible you wouldn't get caught with a felonius device. It's possible you wouldn't ever drop the soap in prison. It's possible you could find someone to sell you a gun after you get out. Etc.

    I was jc. I'm looking to buy a gun with a threaded barrel. I just didn't know if an improvised suppressor was legal hence the OP. Now I know.

    Yep that's all it takes. Same with full auto guns as long as they are post 65.

    No. Just an extra $200. And be able to pass a federal back ground check. And you have to wait 6 months for it all to go through.

    All this assumes you live in a state where they are legal. Talk to your local gun dealer.

    And yes, as overkill stated you want to make sure it's legal in your state.

    Op-you get the tax stamp and you can spemd like $75 for an adapter that will let you use oil filters for a supressor. They actually work well. There again they have to be legal in your home state

    You can to aim-use a small riding lawn mower filter. You can't really aim w a bottle neither but alot of people still kill things like that.

    If you are lucky. I waited 7 months and they lost my paperwork. Returned the check and I had to re- submit all the stuff. now I am back to waiting probably for another 7 months. They said mine would go to the top of the pile and they expect me to believe that.:mad:
