    I am putting this here cause not all of us go to the NFA section.

    This is a $75 (plus the tax stamp) adapter to use a oil filter for a silencer.
    BATF registered and all.

    Does it come with 4" tall sights to see over the filter?

    Making suppressors isn't rocket science. $20 worth of parts at your local hardware store, and that's being sophisticated about it. Especially for a .22. And it will be smaller in diameter. The real issue is dealing with the legalities.

    And in this case, once you fire through that oil filter it becomes a suppressor tube, thus opening you up to questionable activity if you ever "change" that tube. Doesn't matter which part has the serial number at that point.

    A guy would have to delve deeper intro this,since the part in the video has the serial number on it.

    I don't plan on buying one,so I don't care enough to research it.I just thought it would interest a few on here.

    And I'm 100% sure that the "solvent adapter" in Brown's post isn't made to be part of a build.
    100% sure;) Funny how it's almost the same price.

    Hey! That's a great idea! Bet it helps a bit with fumes as well. Too bad they don't have it in 14x1LH, would make the wife hate it less when I clean inside.
