    How so? The price range on rifle silencers is from $600-900, from decent to really good, respectively. Add the $200 stamp, and you haven't spent more than $1100 for most. Any respectable company will warranty their cans for life, and most will rebuild them for a small fee if you break it on your own idiocy. Otherwise, cans in that price range should last indefinitely, have a decent size-to-weight-to-reduction ratio, etc.

    No. Okay? No.
    A guy on SA (who seems to have way too much money) just bought a full-auto MP5 as well as a supressor for it. Well, in the first week after he finally got (after months of processing, red-tape, etc), he took it to the range to fire it full auto with the new suppressor.

    Unfortunately, he hadn't screwed it on to the barrel the whole way, and after about half a magazine, the suppressor flies off and goes zinging along downrange. This would only be a slight inconvenience in most cases, but by some tragic coincedence, the flying suppressor somehow catches the next round out of the MP5 and disintegrates into scraps. :eek4::hsd: I think he said they'd replace it for $500 (a lot less than he paid for it).

    Hmmm...I would think that the drum would reverberate like hell, cancelling out any possiblity of noise reduction that the tires might offer.

    Now a 2 liter cola bottle loaded with packing peanuts...that's a different story.

    :wink:

    I just got a mental picture of a guy decked out in a full ghilli suit creeping the jungle preparing his shot while two more guys in ghilli suits are about 3 miles behind, clomping through the bushes trying to roll a 55 gallon drum up to the snipers position for him. :rofl:

    I don't work for them. I help them out whenever they're doing something, like SHOT show, or the Silencertests.com shoot. I've occasionally helped do menial tasks, like knocking pins out of 1911 barrels and shit. In exchange, I get free shit. Well, free except for the $200 to the IRS.
