    i use 1911 with a :banghead:silencer (i make it)

    it's work and i can shoot it
    but my gun can't slide from the muzzle recoil (i use 12lbs spring)

    What can I do to get it working perfectly.

    I need to cut recoil sping or not ?

    thank you and sorry for my english

    In case you live outside the US... I do not condone breaking the law.

    Suppressors, as a general rule, are illegal in most states. Even here in Washington state, we are allowed to own them (with tax stamp) but it is illegal to shoot thru them.

    The suppressor should be mounted to the barrel, not the slide. This way there would be a better seal from the barrel to the suppressor and the slide can work as designed.

    I moved this thread to our "NFA" section as here in the USA silencers are regulated under a special set of federal laws called the "National Firearms Act."

    I'm not sure where you are located, but please do make sure to follow all your local laws, of course.

    A silencer mounted on the barrel of any tilt-barrel locking breech weapon (like a 1911) can cause malfunctions, but the smart guys here can help you figure out what's not right about your gun.

    Not even close! Unless 12 out of 50 is "most." ;)

    You'll probably need to create something like this to make it function reliably:

    Most suppressors made in the states for semi-auto pistols use one since the browning tilt barrel actions are used on most of our handguns (like the 1911).

    Fixed-barrel guns are theoretically easiest to silence and tilt-barrels often need a Nielsen device (booster) to function.

    I wonder if rotary-lockup guns like the Beretta Cougers and Storms can be made to function with a silencer?

    They work, sort of. They tend to loosen up the thread on suppressors because of the rotation motion. Not too bad on round ones, but the Osprey has a tough time with it. You definitely want to check the suppressor often to make sure it stays snugged up.
