Never seen one for sale, but are they legal? Could I get one for my Glock 19? I'd have to get a threaded barrel as well obviously. How would I go about this?

Yup, they are legal as long as you go thru the proper hoops.

Head on over the the Full-Auto board..there are some FAQ's there to read.

If you are looking for a good dealer Joel Cramer out of Wallingford CT has done mine. He helps you out a lot and can offer good advise. I belive his transfer fees are around $50-100. Medic17

Can you get one for post '94 AR though?
Wouldn't that mean you would need a threaded barrel?

(Don't know ahit about cans....)

I second Joel, he'll take care of you... no BS!


For an AR it would have to be a preban or registered full-auto. Since putting it on a post ban is considered adding a flash hider, even if you don't thread the barrel.

+ 1, I got my suppressor through Joel Cramer last year. He charged me $100.00 for the smooth-as-silk transfer.

First transfer is $100, any transfer after that is $50.

Nucadet... is that a fast finger or full-auto?

I was a bit confused there for a moment. In CT, you CAN own a full auto machine gun (except Thompson smg....specifically banned) but CAN NOT own a select fire (Colt M16 for example). At least that's what I believe are the regs. So, you can have a sliencer (I know some CT guys have one) but you can't put it on an any select-fire rifle but you could have one on a semi-auto only clone or full auto machine gun. Every time I think of stuff like this I get a headache!

you almost got it right... except that you can buy a thompson or AK or any gun on the banned list, as long as it is full auto only. And you can put a suppressor on preban semis and registered MGs, with the only exceptions being ruger minis and m14 clones as they don't have pistol grips, thus not needing to be preban. People who owned select fire MGs pre-93 can keep them that way but, any MGs purchased after that had to be FA only.

clear now?

Ow....ow....ow! Thanks. My last headache was just subsiding and you had to bring this all up again!

I get it now. It's so freakin convoluted. I have a hard enought time staying ahead of the law right now with my collection. Getting into MGs and silencers would make my gasket blow, I think.

Thanks, boss. I appreciate the clarification. Up to now, I thought that all Thompsons were verboten. Seems pretty stupid that I CAN own a full auto Thompson with a silencer but I can't own a semi-auto only clone without one

Colt M16s are OK too as long as you replace the selector switch with a safe-full-full switch...
they're safer that way

be vewy vewy quiet.........screw that! wake up the neighbors.. the cans do look sweet though!

So I was at work today thinking about thet pic and was wondering how that AR is legal in CT.
I understand ownership procedure for the supressor itself, but unless that is pre ban how do you mount that if there is a perm attached brake. You cant right? so its a pre ban? or is there a way around that? I'm confused!!
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 2:19:30 PM EDT
I've owned the can for a number of years & you can still buy them in CT, the rifle was manufactured prior to 1994. You can still own so called "assault weapons" in CT if it was made before 1994 & is not on the list of evil firearms.

If you are anywhere near Bpt, we should get together & breeak out all the NFA toys at the indoor range.

ok, I see how it can be done on a pre ban, but can you legally (according to ct 53-202a) pull off mounting a supressor? I dont see how. pistols all day long, but a post ban rifle which already has 1 evil feature ? Whats the thought here?

you can do it on an M1A, or a mini 30 or 14... otherwise, get a preban...
