i know that they (sound suppressors) can be obtained legally; if your state allows it and you pay the ATF tax, but i was wondering why its not legal to posses a "Muzzle Muffler". for example: taming a .308 down to a 9mm in loudness. ive never seen the actual law on this or how a silencer is properly defined. any links? legal question lib

You'll have to wait until summer 04' Right now the problem isnt with noise, its with the fact that suppressors also hide flash, which under the 94 bill is a no no. That is why you need a pre-ban AR to build a suppressed rifle.

[;)]i own a pre-ban Colt AR. several years ago a gentleman at a Gun show gave me the lo' down on how to acquire a silencer legally. from what i can remember you can buy a threaded barrel for a pistol, pay the ATF tax stamp, and then purchase a registered silencer to put on. how would pre/post-ban affect handguns?

threaded barrels on handguns are okay except in cali they are not restricted by the 94 AW ban

Lets not advertise that .223 Rem can be suppressed, because in reality it can't. If you want .22 caliber suppressed you start with Long Rifle in a 60Gr. projectile fired at 1000 FPS.

Grimshaw, he doesnt want silent. Look what he said,
for example: taming a .308 down to a 9mm

That isnt silenced, but it is enough of a reduction to save your hearing and minimize complaints from neighbors.
