Is there such a thing???? I'd like to shoot w/o hearing protection, is there a suppressor made that's reduces the DB level to the point where you don't have to wear protection. And do all suppressors require you to have a special license? also are they for preban weapons only

What say You

Not in WA. You can own a suppressor, but you can not fire a suppressed weapon in WA state. You can go to ID or OR and shoot suppressed, but dont get caught in WA firing a suppressed weapon.

Pre-ban rifles only for this kind of accessory.

IIRC, you can't simply just cross state lines with an NFA weapon without prior approval of the BATF. Even though a suppressor is not a firearm, I believe the same still applies. So... even if you could own one in WA, hopping over to another state to shoot it would not really be practical as you'd need permission (and the associated wait time) for each instance.

I believe that you have to form 5320.20 the suppressor for the trip to a friendly state.

I may be wrong, but still would include the item with the other NFA toys that are making the trip. The last thing you would want is to get stopped in a non-friendly state on the drive threw with a item not listed of the traveling form.

Also, as said, the suppressor is considered a Flash suppressor too. It would count as on of the evil items on the rifle. You would need to go to a thumb hole stock in order to use the FS/sound suppressor on the rifle( threaded barrel).

You don't have to but they will take them.

Silencers and AOWs do not need any permision from ATF to travel across state lines like the other NFA items do.

A thumbhole does not remove an evil feature from a post ban rifle and does not qualify you to put a suppressor on the barrel.

According to the good men & women @ WSI, crossing state lines w/ a legally owned suppressor isn't a legal problem. Actually shooting w/ one in WA State is illegal, however. Some Olympia politician obviously got their digs in on this one.

Wade's Guns also has some under glass at the counter that they'll let you fondle & caress. For the AR series, there are a few brands out there: Knight's, Gemtech, AWC, plus a few others that I can't remember.

*****

Since a suppressor retards/eliminates both sound & flash, & since a post-ban gun cannot have a flash suppressor at all (I think), using a suppressor on a post-ban gun might be illegal, unless there's some sort of legal trade-off that I'm not aware of.

I stand corrected.
"The evils are as follows: collapsible buttstock, pistol grip, removable magazine, grenade launcher, threaded muzzle, bayonet lug, and flash hider."

Just to be a pain in the ass the detatchable magazine is not an evil feature. It is a qualifying feature. If the rifle does not have a detatchable magazine you may have any or all of the other features.

Also threaded muzzle is not an evil feature. Ability to accept a flash hider or greanade launcher is. So a thread in a non std. pitch which will accept no commercially made flash hider would be ok.

You still have to do the Federal tax stamp and paperwork.
