Pretty neat!!


....but ear protection is cheaper! ;)


I think that once suppressors are deregulated, the price for them will plummet. There is no way in Hades that an 8" tube of metal is worth $1000......to me, anyway.

I have to wonder how loading through the silencer works, wouldn't powder hang up? wouldn't the bullet or ramrod possibly damage the baffles?
Here you go:

Still too high, but realize that 1000 bucks buys the gun WITH the silencer.

When I shoot a gun I want it to go BANG!!!!!!
I have muffs to protect my ears that cost $50.
I do not want my pistol to make a sound that resembles a chipmunk fart.

If you watch the video, you might still need the muffs when firing it. I don't know if it was just the super sonic crack, but it seemed louder than I expected.

That supersonic "crack" has to be loud on a .50 caliber projectile. :D

*We do not recommend shooting lead projectiles out of any of our sealed suppressors.

Powerbelts should work well. They're full caliber.

The heck with the noise, there was no smoke!

Sabots should work fine. Also, it looks a lot like my Thompson Strikefire, I wonder if I could just get the barrel.

BH209 burns very clean vs other BP subs and is completely non-corrosive. I'd shoot that in a gun like this. It's very hard to ignite, but this gun is 209 primed, I'm sure, looks like an inline.

Heck, I've taken to shooting BH209 in my sidelock Hawken Hunter Carbine. I put a 209 primer adapter on it. I had an adapter for small rifle primers, but it wasn't hot enough for BH209. The thing ignites reliably with the 209s and the joy of shooting that rifle with good groups without having to brush the bore every shot is awesome. :D

As to bullets, powebelts are expensive, but very accurate and carry good weight, are full bore projectiles, and have a good BC, better than most pistol bullets. I haven't gotten into them with either my inline or Hawken, both which are fast rifling, but I hear of 200 yard MOA with them in a good inline. :D With a silenced muzzleloader, I'd be all in on the modern developments, much less worried about historical accuracy. I'm sorta that way, anyhow, being a practical guy. I mean, I'm old, but they'd developed smokeless by the time I was born. :laugh:

I was all for BH209 until the stuff hit $40 for a 10 ounce bottle. If I can find it cheap I will get some.

Yes, BH209 is a bit pricey. It's worth it to me, though. I do shoot 777 in my inline, powerful stuff and it's very accurate with it and a 385 grain Hornady Great Plains minie. I need to get a BH209 breech plug if I wanna shoot BH209 in that one. CVA offers a plug for 30 bucks or something.
