Illegal silencers

A man in Ohio was busted for having nearly 200 of them. He claims they were muzzle brakes. I wonder what they looked like?

Update: Thanks to Farm Dad, it likely is this:


Update 2: Ebay listing now gone. But was called See and See or some such.

Update 3: Screen grab:

    If you can call that suppressor then any muzzle brake is a suppressor. There’s absolutey no provision for attaching an outer tube short of welding it in place….

    Brakes. Muzzle brakes.

    And if Sig can’t get away with it, I don’t know how this guy figured he could.

    ‘No one needs a muzzle brake that big!’

    ‘Muzzle thingy’

    ‘Barrel Shroud’

    ‘It looks evil. Ban it!’

    “Muzzle thingy that goes out”

  8. Linoge Says:

    I don’t see threads on either end of that thing to attach a shroud/can, so while I can see how they came to that determination, they’re going to have a devil of a time defending it in court.

    Or, they would, if we were a country of laws.

    Looks like a mono-core to me and should fit a Maglite tube perfectly. Just add a thread protector/adapter and end cap. It should fit perfectly in a 7.5″ tube. I believe the C-Size tube is 1″ inside diameter. The D-size tube is 1.35″ inside diameter.
    Just Google Maglite Silencer.
    Heck, even having expansion(freeze)plugs with a hole drilled in the center is a no-no if you own a firearm with a threaded barrel. (who doesn’t?)

    Looks like a “shark gill” style brake to me. Pretty common and effective for large caliber weapons(can you say .338Lapua/.50BMG?).

    It’s baffling.

    What’s the big deal? You can make a can out of it on a Form 1 or 2. Jack.

    So, according to the article he’s on probation for selling an ATF a couple kits to make suppressors in 2014.

    Makes me wonder if he sold one of these and a tube that could be welded over it, then thought he could get away with selling the same core he was already in trouble for as a muzzle brake.

    If so, I don’t think he has a snowball’s chance of calling it a muzzle brake.

  14. Lyle Says:

    Still and all, it looks like it would make a very effective brake.

    It’s a shame that, in this country, we end up having to defend ourselves against those who would deprive us of our constitutionally enumerated rights under color of law, while those doing the depriving rarely ever seem to be prosecuted.

    Not again!?! I can see his shop from my porch. Some of my neighbors are more interesting than others …

    I think they thought he was making the baffles and all you needed was a tube to slide over that so called giant muzzle brake . The laws in this great country really are starting to suck bigtime .
