Video of my legal homemade silencer. Notice the sound of the wind chimes. At the range of the can it's stuffing bullet after bullet in a ragged hole. In real life the sound of the impact on the can is louder than the rifle. You can almost tell in the vid. This rifle is cool beyond belief.

So, it seems pretty straightforward except fpr drilling the solid end cap.  How did you get that hole centered exactly right.  Was it manufactured somewhere or did you make it? Huh  Or did someone punch it for location.... Or could you use a  freeze plug as a template?

Hey Henry, it is straight forward except the arrangement of the baffles, the sequence of them and the spacers are all critical for highest performance. My can is actually a .30 cal silencer for my 300 AAc Blackout AR. It's legal to put it on other things but efficiency may suffer. On the AAC all loads are "ear safe", none are like the .22. The .22  is almost silent as far as noise from the bullet. It's crazy good on the .22 and a dedicated .22 device would not be quieter but I reckon the size could be smaller for the same reduction. Since each attempt cost a 200 buck tax stamp I decided to build a .30 Cal. and hope it worked on the .22. I'm ecstatic at the results of the experiment.

To be able to shoot a high power rifle without ear protection is fantastic....if you like to poke holes in paper or animals. To be able to shoot a .22 that is quieter than an air rifle is crazy! I can't wait for the weather to change and start eliminating squirrels and rabbits Smiley.

DO NOT DRILL ANY HOLES IN ANYTHING UNTIL YOU HAVE A TAX STAMPED FORM 1 Just having the parts possible to build a silencer can get you 10 years and a 250K fine. All of this is legal to own and posses until you "make baffles" and drill end caps. Wait until your approval! DO NOT FU*K AROUND WITH THIS STUFF WITHOUT THE PROPER PAPERWORK.  These parts are sold as "solvent cleaning traps" and you damn well better treat them as such until you get your stamp! You have been warned.

Silencers are legal in 39 states, just do it right!

Don't worry, I don't have something that would accept a silencer.  I was just interested in the machining of the end cap.

Yea, I know, we have to fix that Smiley We've talked about most of this but I wanted to stress the importance of getting the paperwork and that silencers are "nothing but good" and completely legal. Smiley The caps to fit Mag Lites are all center marked...imagine that! They are extremely easy to build but  do not even think about it until you have the stamped form1. !!!!!!!

Edit***** A real side benefit and I think I mentioned it in another thread but it is so cool it needs repeating. Simply being in "possession"  of a silencer not registered to you is a felony...with 10 years and 250K fine. ATF will use this very loosely if you are a criminal. This can actually mean that if "we" are going hunting and I stop at a store and go in with the rifle on the back seat and "you" are not on my Trust  "you" just committed the felony of "being in possession". Take this a little farther.....why would I hide my silenced ,22 or put it in my safe? I have 500 bucks in the rifle, silencer and tax stamp. My camera is worth more.
My camera however will not get you 10 years in federal prison Smiley  So if POS robs us and steals my rifle and silencer it is a certainty he'll show it off. And when he gets caught every single person that is within eyesight of it is likely and will be charged with being in "possession" of an NFA device. How sweet is that?
