    Pretty much, call it a silencer as in old school. sound suppressor or can since it looks like a can screwed onto the barrel. :)
    Silencer Shop:
    "It's important to remember that yes, silencers are legal in 42 states. They don't require any special class of license to own. But there are a lot of relevant federal laws governing the purchase and use of silencers — you can read more about them here — and Silencer Shop is here to help you navigate suppressor laws by state".

    Speaking of can, I saw a video where a guy used an automobile spin-on oil filters to make a silencer. Worked pretty good and really did look like a can on the end of the gun.

    I made two very simple purchases at Wal-Mart, some Hoppes #9 and Hoppes Gun Medic Spray. In the last three years. I have been concentrating on revolver shooting. However, with the the international situation being what it is I have been shooting my AR SKS and riot gun quite a bit lately and used up all my solvents and most of my gun oil.

    Just unpacking my newly acquired Eric Cortina Tuner Brake for my re-barreled Savage 10BA in .308.
    Curiosity got the best of me so I had to try one.

    As I recall, the guy in the video said he did get the legal paperwork or whatever to do it even though it was just an oil filter, he was using it as a silencer. Here it is. He talks about the legal part at 0:50 and again about 6:05. Jokingly (I hope) he notes below the video,
    "*2022 update* -- the ATF is now saying simply owning a oil filter may be a violation of the NFA"


    And I did purchase two oil filters last Saturday (no silencer, but for the motor home engine and generator).

    A friend just called about our Regularly Scheduled Thursdayrita, beating the Friday crowd at Mexican cafe.
    Well sure.
    Then he added, "Can we stop by the gun store/range to pick up my new purchase?"
    I said, "Sure, are we going to try it out before we get into the tequila?"
    He replied "Oh, no, I have to get it home and clean and inspect it before shooting."
    And he didn't even say what it is. I guess I will see.

    S&W M41 so he can have separate iron and optic sight guns.

    Ordered some ammo and a couple mags. Won the bid on an old Remington 721 long action stock on GB so I'll be able to get my 270 back into an original stock.
