Skip to comments.SILENCERCO MAXIM 50, INTEGRALLY SOUND MODIFIED .50 CALIBER MUZZLE LOADER, LEGAL IN ALL 50 STATES

For the first time since the National Firearms Act (NFA) was created in 1934, civilians can enjoy suppressed shooting in all 50 states with SilencerCos latest innovation: the integrally suppressed Maxim 50 muzzleloader. In addition, this product can be purchased right now on the web with no regulation (no 4473, no tax stamp, no photographs or fingerprints) at store.silencerco.com and be shipped immediately to the purchaser with few exceptions*.
Residents in the 42 states that allow civilian ownership of silencers have to pay a $200 tax, fill out forms, send in photos, submit to fingerprinting, and wait months for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to review their forms and check their backgroundsjust to acquire an inherently-harmless product. With all the hoops to jump through, its no surprise that many Americans have difficulty committing the time or money it takes to save their hearing. Citizens may have had their Second Amendment rights suppressed, but innovation cannot be silenced.

Of course, as soon as the ATF is finished with the Auto-Glove, they will likely turn their greasy eyes to this.
A single ATF Open Letter and it will be toast.
If you are in to muzzle loading rifles this is pretty cool. But I’m certainly not going to take up black powder firearms just to sport a suppressor.
Why the lie about all 50 states?
“Why the lie about all 50 states?”
If reading the article correctly, the SiCo device falls outside the NFA (feral law, not state) definition of a “silencer.” Mainly because it is integral with a non firearm, also as defined by the NFA. Gamo sells a line of spring-action air rifles with integral suppressors/silencers (necessary only for the first 1000 shots until the dieseling stops).
They do not do much for spring guns I found.
You need a Firearm Owners ID Card even for a flintlock. My guess is the police or game wardens would arrest you just to make a test case and would probably win.
I have a Gamo Whispercat in .177 that has an integral suppressor, and the suppressor really, really sucks.
I wouldn’t even term it a suppressor. It’s just a bulbous termination of the barrel.
“Add on suppresors (we call them lead dust collectors) are popular with the pre-charged pneumatic pellet rifles and pistols.
They do not do much for spring guns I found.”
Agree. The PCP guns have a consistent pre and post pop that is well handled by the dust collectors. Not all folks who use spring air get past the 1000 pellets needed to diesel off all the oil preservative and after that, just not an issue. The Brits can, and are encouraged, to put a can on just about any air or rim fire rifle.

Yep....baffles are split and the path is much too wide for any effective action on the pressed air. Maybe some wire pulling gel? Run it wet like a real can?
The light And Faster pellets Are
Like the Report from a .22 .
The heavier and Slower pellets
Are much Quieter...like the
Tomahawk pellet...much quieter!
It is illegal, so I have not done it, but when the ball drops and Rule of Law is decreased, I have an old Pringles can I was going to use to fabricate a real suppressor.
My air rifle breaks the sound barrier. It is really loud.
