I was unaware of that. Interesting. Learn something new every day.
I would start printing my own baffle stack with a 3d printer. When they wore out throw them away and print a new stack.
Every gun company? You mean every yahoo with access to a machine shop. There might actually be a reason to go to a gun show again.
I agree and I think we're nearing the pinnacle of suppressor design and performance.
I did some research about Depression-era gangsters and the Chicago mob of the 1920s-1930s when I was writing about the origins of the N.F.A. '34. I don't recall any use of silenced / suppressed / muffled weapons by these gangsters at that time. But they might have. Certainly the Chicago gangsters in particular were known to shop at gun stores and sporting goods stores, and if they saw Maxim silencers for sale, they might have wanted to buy some, for use in assassinations. The fewer people who hear the gunshots, the better. If it takes an extra 5 minutes for the killing to be discovered and the cops called, that's an extra 5 minute head start the assassin has to better make his getaway.
The categories for machine guns and sawed-off shotguns were well-supported by gangster use of such guns. Although for many gangs of criminals, the machineguns would come from robbing police stations and breaking into National Guard armories! Only a few criminals bought full autos from retail stores.
The whole idea behind the NFA was to distinguish between normal guns (that are good for both sport and tactical use) and guns and accessories made specifically for combat / homicide. And the public perception of silencers was that they let murders happen in big cities without anybody hearing the shot, so the crime goes unnoticed until somebody trips over the victim's body. Neither Congress nor the public even considered that silencers were legitimate safety products that preserved the hearing of hunters and target shooters.
The NRA didn't tell them, either. The NRA made no effort to keep silencers out of the final version of the bill. They succeeded in keeping ordinary handguns out of the reach of the NFA, and all the other kinds of exotic weapons could be banned, for all they cared.
Every company IS going to make them, just saw an email where Blackhawk of all companies are coming out with cans.
Well any time Joe blow can make one using auto parts why not get in on the action?
Hell they sell them 'undrilled' at the funshow. That guy will rake it in if they become unregulated.
When it doubt, if it's something that would make the federal government more effective, just assume it doesn't exist.
yah but unfortunaltly it wont protect you from federal agents https://bearingarms.com/ba-staff/2016/11/25/kansas-mans-homemade-suppressors-clash-federal-law/. should be some interesting cases that stem from this
