Silencer on a shotgun?

Hollywood has been playing with the silenced shotgun alot. It has been to my understanding that a shotgun cannot accept a silencer because it has multiple projectiles. So my question is can you use buckshot, birdshot etc. with a silencer on a shotgun, or even with slugs. And has it been done?

Yes to what you can use and yes it can of course be done.

You can do it with birdshot / buck. Not seen it done with slugs but I'm sure its possible.

You can also get subsonic shotgun shells :) This will make it a bit quieter.

Here are some silenced shotguns that can be easily purchased in the uk:

The silencers use a fenestrated tube. Provided an adequate shotcup there shouldn't be aproblem with multiple projectiles.

The video I posted is of a screw-on silencer, not a perforated barrel and permanent silencer. ;)

The technology is different than described in your link, and fairly intelligent in design. I'm not sure if it's patented or not, so I will refrain from discussion thereof.

Those silencers are only about $100-200 USD. Man, if we could get silencers over here for that price...

Why?

If it's not patented yet, I'm not disclosing it. ;)

Hope they've filed the paperwork. Not good to put unpatented inventions on public display.

Tromix was making shotgun suppressors, too, but Red Jacket seems to have taken the design a bit further. Tony's work is so popular he doesn't need the hassle of one-off work.

That one video without the supressor was insane. The flash was incredible.
