    Silencer .45ACP



    any opinions?

    It's the silencerco 45Osprey. Supposibly it fits on all types of .45's (including 1911). Looks pretty nice IMO. Would I get it, not for the prices I found it for... 795.00 to 879.00

    If silencers were legal to possess in Minnesota I'd have one of some sort already.

    I could be mistaken but doesn't it take a class 3 license to own one? I don't know because a 45 is a tough round to silence regardless.

    Re: Silencer .45ACP

    I am trying to understand why, besides legally sanctioned threat elimination, to buy a silencer for a .45 as a civilian.

    It does look tacticool. Interesting because unless I misunderstood you don't need a threaded barrel.

    You just need to apply and pay the $250 stamp price here in TN its not considered a class 3 I believe. I've seen some at the gun range.

    The guy that has one says when he shoots at home it doesn't bother his neighbors. But he only has enough room for a small pistol range.

    It does not require a license. As long as it is legal in the state, one essentially has to pass a thorough background check and purchase a $200 tax stamp from the feds. This is in addition to the cost of the suppressor, of course. I don't know all of the requirements off the top of my head so there are probably a couple of others as well.

    Re: Silencer .45ACP

    In GA it's legal, only thing is is that you need to register your weapon as a "dangerous weapon" with the state. As far as fee's, i have no clue.

    Re: Silencer .45ACP

    why you need a silencer? fire a 45acp in a indoor range without your ear-plugs "ONCE"--LOL no don't do it! just kidding!

    i keep saying one of these days when i win the lotto i am going to build a 9mm or 45acp ar SBR with a can just for the hell of it. but then if i won that kind of money i might just build a 300 whisper instead-- good to shoot gophers in dads back yard--while he is taking his 15:00H nap!

    That is one long silencer in the OP's post!
