    I noticed that the law requires that the entire EconoCan be returned to the manufacturer if the oil filter needs to be changed. In other words, you cannot legally go to Napa and get a new filter to install.

    This is an aftermarket alternative.

    I would be afraid to order one out of fear that it would be a government set up. "Knock Knock"

    Looks like a great idea in theory, but if you get caught with that set up nothing will save you.
    You will be in jail, firearms taken, and lose your gun rights. Not worth it.

    Unless you get the stamp and at that point why not just get a proper can and not look like jed clampet at the range.

    From Cadiz gun works (emphasis mine)

    "The Econo Can Suppressor comes as a complete unit with the oil filter attached, serial numbered and registered with ATF/NFA.

    If or when you need to change the filter out, the ATF/NFA rules says it needs to come back to the original manufacture, which Cadiz Gun Works is. The cost is $25.00. The complete Econo-Can Suppressor can be shipped directly to us, for gunsmithing, which would be replacement/rehab/repair of the oil filter, with the serial # remarked, and documented as being replaced/rehabbed/repaired. The completedEcono Can Suppressor can be sent back to you at your address on your NFA Tax Stamp Form. You do not need to go though a dealer for gunsmithing services. The life of the oil filter varies depending on caliber used and bullet type. (ex. AR15=300-500 rds)"

    300-500 rounds!
    So every trip or two to the range you have to send it back?!

    If you look at the BATF rules, if you registered the adapter the can cannot be replaced. As with everything, you need to READ THE ACTUAL REGULATIONS. And of course even then...

    I agree with this. From what I have seen and heard if you buy the threaded adapter that is the part that needs the stamp not the filter.

    As always, check with the source.

    https://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/national-firearms-act-silencers.html#outer-tube-repair

    While the S/N can be placed on the end cap, the tube cannot be replaced by the user.

    "The term “repair” does not include replacement of the outer tube of the silencer. The outer tube is the largest single part of the silencer, the main structural component of the silencer, and is the part to which all other component parts are attached. The replacement of the outer tube is so significant an event that it amounts to the “making” of a new silencer. As such, the new silencer must be marked, registered and transferred in accordance with the NFA and GCA."
