    You have probably seen those adapters that allow you to use an automotive oil filter as a suppressor. Usually all the proper legal stuff and stamps are recommended. Now we have a new guy offering what appears to be the same kind of threaded device as a "solvent trap " when cleaning your gun. I would certainly hope that very few folks buy these and use them for suppression without doing the legal stuff first. Their ad appeared in Shotgun News, so I went to their site for this:

    i wouldnt call it a scam.

    its a pretty clever way to filter and recycle used gun solvent.

    if your stupid enough to shoot it with it on the gun and a filter on it with no tax stamp and get caught doing it, thats not a scam, just stupid on your part

    The company that originally marketed the filter silencer also originally marketed the solvent trap.

    I dont consider it a scam either. And no where does it advertise it as a silencer in any way.

    True, but then only a r*tard would believe that adding a handle on a rifle, or a barrel shroud, or a pistol grip makes it more dangerous (i.e., a dreaded assault weapon). That's the mental level of the gun-grabbers. ;)

    Isn't a barrel shroud that shoulder thing that goes up?

    10 years in Club Fed and a $10,000 fine isn't worth it to get caught with one without a stamp.

    Actually they are legal to have without a stamp. You can even attach it to your gun without a stamp. It only becomes illegal if you fire the firearm with it attached.

    I wonder if the ATF would pursue charges if you fire the weapon with it attached but without a filter on the end? I wouldn't do it either way, just wondering how far they would take it.

    It's not acting as a suppressor. Just having a threaded fitting on the end of your rifle doesn't mean it's a class III item.

    Makes sense. All my threaded muzzles that don't have attachments are covered with a screw on protector. I guess this could be considered a protector of the threads.

    Humm? We all know this is very edgy. The BATFE will degree these illegal. After all they operate beyond the Democracy.:rolleyes:

    I can't tell you how tiresome it is to be tripping over those damned BATFE agents lurking about in my gun room and on my private range:mad:. I would never have such a device as that in my possession let alone mounted on my gun.

    BTW, the stamped one, do you have to drill a hole in the bottom of the filter or does the first round through it take care of that? Just askin'.

    First round makes the hole. Every round after that follows it. There are some good videos on youtube. I was actually shocked these worked as good as they did on the videos.

    They may be effective, but they look like Fido's ***.

    I thought the best suppressors had water in them and they got increasingly louder as the water is dissipated with every shot. Is that a myth or is it true?

    i saw a YouTube video last year of some company doing some testing of their suppressors and they used that gell used for lubricating electrical wire when pulling it through long runs of conduit. they tested with and without it. there was a difference in the measured decibels when used wet over dry in the suppressor. it was very interesting.
