Thanks

They were already legal in most states. There are steps though to get one.

check out he M-16 full auto forum for more details basically approved federal forms (like 6 months waiting time) and a $200 tax in addition to the price of the suppressor

AWB had nothing to do with the silencer market, only with your semi-auto rifle with the detachable magazine and pistol gripped or other combonation of evil features ability to accept it.

Silencers are regulated under the 1934 law, which covers Machine Gun, Silencer, Short Barrel Rifle and Shotgun, AOW and Destructive Devices (making all mentioned items "Title-2")


In TN, silencers are legal, so find you a dealer and buy 1.

Hey YO!

I have nothing to add as these guys have summed it up. I just wanted to say "Hey YO!"

The silencer was never illegal under the AWB, however the threaded muzzle and flash hider effect of a silencer on a post 1994 AR was. Now you can put one on any AR you choose.

THANK ALL of you for the replies. I thought silencers were illegal, but if they are not and are not in TN I am definately getting one.

Can anyone give me a site where I can compare as I know nothing about them, which I am sure is obvious.
