Only if its used to bring the barrel out to legal length without looking stupid, like on an RF94.

They are a must for making sub-guns not look silly with 16" bbls. They also have their place on reproduction guns. Otherwise, whatever makes you happy.

Cheaper to have a fake silencer on my krinkov then get the tax stamp for a SBR

For $200 and your CLEO's signature you don't have to worry about it. I'm dying for a Krink, but the idea of adding a long barrel or a fake supressor makes my stomach hurt. I'll wait till I can afford the real thing, SBR Tax and all.


The above is just my opinion, and not meant as an attack.

not taken as one if i could afford the tax stamp right now i would get it and a new barrel

Same as a V-6 Mustang...............all show, no go! Why not just put a Ferrari kit on your Fiero? Or stuff your pants with a sock on a first date?


Or just buy an Airsoft with a TacPoint.

$200 - cost of fake can - cost of US parts (no US parts needed on an SBR) = not that much cheaper.

Ah Yes but getting CLEO sig may or may not be imposable for some people . Plus some states are non SBR.

I think they're the srupidest things in the world.
Link Posted: 9/29/2004 8:46:43 AM EST
They have their uses. I considered getting one to kill some of the noise of of a mini-y comp. It still would have been loud, but if I needed to shoot without hearing protection, it would make a big difference.
Link Posted: 9/29/2004 9:01:22 AM EST
I think they are more appropriate when they are actually fitted over a longer barrel. So you have the look of a suppressed krink but with the legal length and better ballistics.

I just ended up getting real ones...... Fake ones are pointless. Just SBR it (or go full-auto ). Looks better anyway.
Link Posted: 9/29/2004 12:49:40 PM EST
I've got a fake can on my krink. Only out of necessity. Its the one from ORF that looks just like a PB5 can. Makes the gun horribly unbalanced and makes it louder and the flash bigger. SBR paperwork out the door tomorrow. Pic!

I have a fake supressor on my Cobray M11

It really helps control the gun and gives a nice place to hold onto when bump firing from the hip.

For the most part I think they're weak. However, in some places, where a can is not a legal option, a fake can make some 16" barrels looks a LOT better. Below is a board members USC/UMP conversion. In this case, I think the fake can is MUCH better than the long, skinny barrel that would be in its place. Just looks cool, and this is coming from the guy who 99.9% of the time says that there is NEVER a good reason for a fake ANYTHING on a weapon. Below would be an exception in my book. Absolutely beautiful UMP conversion.....(Hepcat85's by the way)

No, but its cool to be poor. Maybe you cant afford a suppressor. Maybe theyre not legal in your county. Maybe its pointless to have a suppressor on your weapon because you cant get subsonic ammo for it and you still get the supersonic crack which isnt worth $500. Maybe you have a $200 subgun that needs more forward weight. Maybe you have a MP5 clone for plinking and it looks like ASS with a skinny ass barrel sticking out.

And how did you know I have a V6 camaro?

Reminds me of the kid in the "My Friend Gave Me A M-16" thread.

Even before I went down that old NFA road I thought fake suppressors were idiotic and never would have had one. Now I know they are.

That's fine and good in most "free" states. We in Alabama, unfortunately, have a unique situation where FA & suppression are legal (with the proper Federal fees/paperwork) but SBR/SBS are specifically forbidden.

IMO they (fake cans) can be an aesthetic improvement in some applications - I had them for my HK94 & my UZI carbine. Sometimes they can even be useful (the MAC-11 example already cited - I don't shoot my MACs nearly enough to justify the expense/red tape of a real suppressor, but the fake can makes them more controllable, easier to shoot, etc.). FWIW, I do plan to get a real suppressor for use on some of my ARs very soon.
