    If they actually work as suppressors and aren't just eye candy, they're illegal to buy without a NFA stamp even for an airsoft gun.

    If they are just eye candy, they are perfectly legal to own for any purpose. Many real firearms have fake silencers.

    I don't think the suppressor is going to be able to work on a real gun.
    The other device may fit .....but I wouldn't use it; airsoft devices are usually not made to be sturdy enough to work with real guns even if they do fit.
    The Gemtech has to be a prop ...... "eye candy" as the prior poster said.

    They're fake. No baffles whatsoever, just a tube with letters on the outside.

    If they have the correct threading, sure, throw them on your real gun. Just a heads up though, they probably cannot handle the heat that goes along with a real gun being fired nor do they act as a suppressor. They are just for looks.

    I wouldn't be so quick to do that... As cheaply as they're probably made (considering the price I'd say VERY cheaply), there's no telling if the threads on the muzzle device are aligned with the bore of the fake can, and the QD attachment of the fake can to the muzzle device that comes with it is suspect too. Personally I'd skip it. Not worth the money and it could potentially damage your rifle.

    There are some airsoft suppressors that actually reduce the sound of airsoft firing.
    But, those ones are not being legally imported into the US.

    This is true, but my point is that they will fit on your rifle if they have matching threading. There are fake suppressors made for firearms that would be much better options.
