Dummy Silencer

Post by 5dot7guns » 04 Mar 2015, 00:06

Just got my dummy silencer...it fit really easy and secure... I noticed that if you do not fit it all the way to the end of the barrel, it actually hides the muzzle flash and DOES provide a moderate level of shot noise reduction. Guess it isn't "legal" unless you fit it all the way onto the barrel... just an observation! It cost me $120, postpaid, and has a made in Belgium jargon printed on it. Looks really 'cool'!

$120 for a fake can? For another $80, you could get a tax stamp and make one at home. Wouldn't be the greatest, but it would actually do something.

That's different, they do something positive for the community, and no tax stamp needed

Tax stamp is cheaper. And quieter.

So it's only for looks, and none of us get a look? :ponder:

It actually DOES reduce the noise and covers the flash if you just leave a few inches extended over the front of the barrel. I agree that photos are the best describer... I don't know how to put a photo on the forum... Just do a GOOGLE search for PS90 dummy silencer and I am sure you will find them... the one I have has what seems to be "official" Belgium markings on it...but, it is made in the USA. AND NO PAPERWORK!! Just keep the allen-key handy in case an 'official' wants to inspect it. Also, might be a good idea to keep the flyer that comes with it to prove it is a dummy silencer (smile).... and it really looks neat! Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder... and I am sure there will lots of comments offering better solutions or asking why you would want one...

Since I made my first post my Axiom got released from NFA jail, and I stuck it on my FsN as soon as I could. Paid $299 for it, was in jail for 3.5 months, and it makes my FsN quieter than my 9mm when shooting supersonic. Can't touch 9mm subs through the Tirant, but I was seriously stunned at how quiet it got 197s and a 195 that I fired.

Try Elite's QuieTor (is it still called that??). I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Don't have EA money, but I'm working up a subsonic on the bench, I expect it to be 22LR quiet.
