The adapter is registered. The filter is free. I wish people wouldn’t publicize this.

That makes no sense. The adapter doesnt suppress the sound. In fact its no different than the many existing adaptors on the market now which adapt the muzzle threads to that of the can.

What is the difference between this taxation
and the Stamp Acts, tea tax etc.
Other than it’s being done by our own government
I mean, although even for the colonists it was
their own government at the time.

I wouldn’t want to take the front sight off a good rifle and have the barrel threaded.

If you had an old junk rifle you could always put the filter on with PC-7 only it would never come off.

The adapter is the key element however and not disposable. Oil filters are ubiquitous and very cheap.

It seems extremely effective. I’m sure there will be a new law about having an unused oil filter soon.

I have read opposing opinions about whether the oil filter is a registered part of the suppressor or not. Some say that it serialized and you can’t legally change the oil filter out. Got any links that have the definitive truth.

These days who knows. Saw a video of a company that makes the adapter. They say the adapter is serialized. Filters would be wholly impractical.

I saw it on the internet so it has to be truthful right?

I noticed only a very small hole on the end of the filter. I wonder how before drilling that the spot was aligned with the bore?

I assumed that hole was made by the first bullet.

Too bad we are in the middle of an anti-gun jihad. At another, rational time getting suppressors off the regulated and taxed list would have made casual target practice quieter and less of a bother to the neighbors.

It seems extremely effective. I’m sure there will be a new law about having an unused oil filter soon.

The filter itself is not regulated, the adapter is. In the eyes of the BATFE anything that allows you to attach a means of suppressing the muzzle report of a gun is considered a NFA item (controlled "firearm") and falls in the class of weapons such a machine guns, sawed off shotguns/rifles, destructive device (bore size over .50"), and purpose made suppressors. The later items are serialized by the manufacture and are already threaded to fit a rifle barrel (1/2" x 28 TPI is typical for .22 cal.) In addition to oil filters, plastic soda bottles have been used as "makeshift" suppressors and work reasonably well if a little water is left in the bottle to help cool the exiting gasses.

The ATF takes a dim view of home workshop inventors futzing around with anything that they might consider to "suppress" muzzle report. If you get caught with an unregistered device (no manufacturer name & address, no serial number) you WILL face felony charges, a very stiff fine and time in a Federal prison.

If you do take the time and $$$ to go through the proper procedure to acquire a suppressor (correctly fill out and file a BATFE Form 4 and provide a certified check for $200.00 to cover the excise tax.) there are still local laws to consider: CA, HI, IA, IL, MA, MN, NJ, NY, and RI ban suppressors outright.

In addition there are loads of BATFE regulations covering suppressors which you MUST follow: No one but you may use your suppressor, your buddy may not even touch it w/o committing a Federal crime, you must not take it out of your state of residence w/o telling BATFE (your newest best buddy!), if you move w/in state you must inform ATF of your new address, and the list goes on and on but you get the idea.

GtG

That sounds pretty dangerous, firing into a closed container. If not for a .22, certainly for a larger caliber.

The only drawback I can see is that the filter would block the sights making precision aiming impossible.

Nope, just blast the first hole. There is no problem. Done with an 556 with no problem.

...could buy a spare flash suppressor (while they’re still legal) and JBWeld an oil filter to that...

It's not a "closed contaier". The intake on an oil fiter is the threaded hole. The outflow is through holes between the center hole and the gasket. Those holes aren't blocked.

The problem with the oil can suppressors is that they blow out after only a few rounds from a high powered rifle.

wouldn’t the ATF consider screwing on a new oil filter a rebuild and throw you in the stony lonesome for 10 years?
