    You need to find a "Class 3" gun dealer in your state. They will be able to give you the forms to apply for a federal tax stamp to possess a suppressor. It will cost you $200 for the tax stamp plus the cost of the suppressor (expect at least $400-700). The application needs to be signed by the chief of police or other issuing authority in your city/county of residence and then you return it to the Class 3 dealer and he submits it to the ATF for you. It will likely take at least 90 days to find out if you are granted the stamp or not.

    This is assuming they are legal in your state at all.

    legal in GA. i know because there's a place about 5 minutes away from me that makes and sells them. maybe you've seen them advertise in the magazines. advanced armament. here in Lilburn, GA. my friend is waiting on his to finish being built. it'll be capable of handling full auto, because it may end up on his select-fire AR. 30 dB reduction dry, which only allows you to fire the rifle without ear protection. won't suppress fully. yeah, tax stamp if legal. speaking of tax stamps, the vector uzi he's got on the way will be nice. and if i misspelled "vector" it's because i've never seen the comany's name written out.

    There's a company by the name of Smigett that makes excellent 5.56mm suppressors, as small as about 3" long and sound signature of the MP5SD with regular ammo. They are made by TLG Manufacturing, but their website is down, i don't know for certain if they sell to non-LEO/government.

    Ruger MkII .22, 22oz big slam bottle, duct tape and subsonic ammo. You can't really hit anything with accuracy, but the first shot is pretty quiet.

    How loud is a suppressed pistol shot? (a 9mm for example) I assume it isn't a "pfft" like you see in the movies, but I don't really know.

    it depends heavily on the supressor and the ammunition. subsonic ammo will make a great difference, as the initial sonic boom coming from the bullet breaking the sound barrier will no longer be present. with that gone, the effectiveness of the suppressor will be much greater, however, accuracy suffers with decreased muzzle velocity. check the links i gave to advanced armament, which tell a good deal about suppressors. most of the ones they make are about a 30dB reduction or so, which, with normal ammo, will only make it quiet enough to fire your firearms with no hearing protection. most earplugs and ear-muffs are 30dB reduction too.

    It's actually a lot like that or so variation of such sound, it varies with the design of the suppressor. With subsonic ammo, the most noise you hear is the bolt ejecting the spent casing and loading a new round. An MP5SD is more of a "chuff" than a "pfft", for example.

    i just wanted to know

    in the movies, when they put one on, it screws INTO the barrel, and not onto it

    I know movies arent real and all, but is that how some really work?
    If thats true, seems to me it would screw up the bore?

    :dunno:

    That's just movie stuff.

    IRL, the threads are on the outside of the barrel. Some suppressors have quick attachment systems that use a clip/latch type attachment instead of threads, but none of them actually go into the barrel.

    well, if you really need one.........the H&K USP tactical 45 is the choice of SF and such. pre-threaded barrel. just join the military and put in for special forces selection, or go look in the back of your local milita suburban.

    made one before. used a ruger mk II. really all you need is a good drill press, some aluminum tubing/end caps (found in most hardware stores), and fiber glass insulation.

    *snip* - per NFA 1934, manufacturing of a suppressor requires an ATF Class 2 manufacturing license. If you would like to risk the $250,000 fine and 10 years for felony possession, there are plenty of web sources for making your own suppressor, but OT isn't one of them. ;) -Kelly

    extremely quite. really all you hear is the air. i shot the hell out of a phone book inside my apartment.

    I just got a Costal can for my company's Mac 11/nine. With subsonic ammo it sounds like a full auto paintball gun or an electric typewriter, not movie quiet, but it doesn't sound ANYTHING like a firearm. Kinda errie, here you are spitting out 2,000 RPM of FMJ 9mm and it feels/sounds like a toy.

    With standard ammo its still painfull to shoot without hearing protection.

    I've also got a can on my .22 bolt action. with subsonic all you hear is the click of the firing pin and the "thwap" of the round hitting the target.

    my friend got his supressor from advanced armament last week. if you want to see it, his exact one, serial number and all, is on the cover of this month's Special Weapons magazine. it has about 32 dB reduction, which makes it so you can shoot it without ears, but i wouldn't do it indoors more than once or twice. it's just a hair softer than .22 long. no ringing in the ears, but it's not something i'd do too often without ears. also, he threw a .22 conversion kit on one of his AR's with the suppressor. he said that the only thing you heard was the bolt. just a clacking sound. also, because this can is not ported, the recoil is cut just about in half. but, it does add about 1.5 lbs to the muzzle, which, on an M4 barreled AR, throws it way out of balance. he said that the forward grip helped with that a ton.

    for a complete review of his, and one other .223 suppressor, grab this month's Special Weapons for Military and Police. it's also got a .50 bmg suppressor, and a .300WSM suppressor.

    this thread is full of illegal activities and ignorance. Ppl, dont try and be cool and tell us you built a suppressor, you probably didnt, and if you did, I doubt you got the permit. Dont go around talking about doing something illegal. Thats what gets you busted.
