    Anyone have any experience with SilencerShop.com?

    They seem like they have awesome prices, but not sure how it will all add up after transfers, etc.

    Curious if a person made their own can, is that legal?
    Would they still need paperwork ?

    Not yet
    Yes

    You have to fill out a form with the ATF and pay the $200 tax, but you can do it at 18 instead of waiting till you're 21 to buy a suppressor.

    Same thing applies with a SBR.

    Thanks for reply.
    I`m still unclear though;
    No, I can not make my own can period or
    Yes, I can make my own can but would still have to register and pay the tax?

    I am actually a Machinist by trade...just think that sometimes a pastry chef would have been less stressful..lol

    Yes, you can make your own as long as owning one is legal in your state. You need to apply for, and receive, a $200 tax stamp from the BATFE before you build.

    Thanks Polymerhead.
    That makes the prospect of me getting one much better then.
    I have even seen drawings/plans for how to build them, but never did so with the thought of doing something that could forever take away my right to legally own a firearm. Or a huge fine...or prison

    I recently learned about unfinished lower ar15 receivers, and being able to build your own firearm for personal use.

    Cool.

    You should probably call the ATF. I submitted paperwork for a SBR on 1/1/13 and got it back on 8/22/13. It's in a trust which helps but you should have had an approval by now.

    ATF 314-616-4500

    Nah, I'm still a few months out. Paid for it in Dec '12, dealer got the transfer in March or April, my CLEO took like 9 weeks for some reason and I submitted the paperwork in Aug '13. I'd be surprised if I have it by summer at this rate.

    Any recommendations for a QD 7.62 suppressor?
    It'll be used on a 10.5'' 300 BLK, 16'' 5.56, 16'' 6.8 SPCII, and possibly a 14.5'' 5.56, and 16'' 308.

    I'd like it to add less than 9'' to the rifle, and user serviceable is a big plus.

    Most cans I know of are not going to be serviceable in .308 capacity. I don't own one, but have heard good things about silencerco's Saker line. If I were shopping, I'd look at SiCo, AAC, Templar, Surefire and Thunderbeast. I know you are going for multicaliber use, but consider that a .30 cal can will be larger and heavier than a 5.56. Ounces don't seem like much until they are hanging out there off the barrel. Just something to consider.

    No experience with the Saker. The AAC latch is a weak point - I've already had to replace mine on my 762SD, but AAC has great customer service and they stand behind their product. I have 2 AAC cans and they're both high quality and built tough.

    I've been toying with the idea of having a suppressor or 2 and I've decided nows the time, Im wanting one for hunting, would have to be a 30 cal can for use on a 308 or my 270 (it would work right). and the 2 would be a sparrow for my 22s. my question is what would be a good 30 cal suppressor for this? also it will be on a bolt gun not sure if that matters i know most use them on ar platforms but how quiet could i expect to be? slower heavier loads would work best correct? lastly do you purchase the suppressor before the paperwork comes back or do you just pay the 200 stamp then pay for them afterwards?
