    So has anybody heard of these. I found it pretty interesting. As long as you register the adapter and pay the 200 dollar tax stamp through the ATF its legal and a heck of a lot cheaper than a real one. It just looks retarded. They have videos of them on YouTube. I haven't figured out how to post a link on my phone so if someone could I would appreciate it.

    I have a mechanic shop in Alabama so I guess I'm sitting on around 500 different sized silencers. Now all I got to do is get me one of them adapters and I can try it out. Even though I could just make my own adapter I think I'll pass on jail time and do it legal though. Wouldn't want to get the loud knock on the door.

    can't paint it black, then it would be dangerous.

    So many things are going through my mind right now. Where would you find a holster? How can you conceal a Fram under summer clothes? How long would it be effective? Still, if you just have to have a suppressor it seems like a cheap way to go.

    Yeah I don't think this is any kind of specops certified gear, but just ****s and giggles. It's kinda neat.

    Better check with you local and state ordnance first . Just because you can pay, register and wait 6 months for approval doesnt mean you can own it . Here in IL we cannot legally own a suppressor :( sad sad day

    Afraid you are all missing the obvious point here.

    Find a USED filter. One with oil still in it.

    Running wet it should be much quieter. Point it straight up, and the lube needs for your firearm are met. So simple, really......:eek:















    Please note: The above IS intended as a joke, and should NOT be attempted except by those that should not reproduce. :p

    I seen that one and it was good. When he broke out the bolt action it was almost completely silent. I was really surprised.

    The way the PTB are pushing things, they are trying to get civil war started, so if you need a silencer/adapter, get to making it, the Batf thugs need to get new jobs. I have a notion that the alphabet agencys are all going to be out of a job.

    Way past time to be kissing federal butt. Save your money for ammo, Mags and Food. Best of luck to you all.

    Why do so many think the adaptor requires a stamp? It's doesn't. But using it in conjunction with an oil filter to "moderate" the sound level of a firearms discharge then it is a Federal Felony charge knocking on your door. It's like the old M16 US Gov't surplus m16 kits you can buy from Sportsmans warehouse that come with the select fire parts for conversion. You can buy it or own it all day long. When you assemble it, that's when Johnny comes knockin.

    What would you do with a short barreled handgun with a dirty oil filter hanging off the muzzle? It would fit nicely into a 5 gallon pail and the sights would be useless. Even if no one could hear it the damn thing would smell the oil rack at Walmart.:eek:

    You don't use a dirty oil filter, you use a clean one. Also filters come in about a thousand different sizes. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard at all to find one small enough to still be able to use the sights. You would just have to make sure your adapter fits the threads on the filter. The guys that make these things picked a very common filter by it's availability, not by its size. If you found a filter in the size you wanted them you could custom make an adapter to fit it.

    They work, though you can't obviously sight them
    The adapter to fit the filter threads is a Class III item and requires a $200 tax stamp and approved Form 4 to own one.
