    looks like a great idea.......

    my only concern is that the threads could unscrew....and then half your suppressor goes flying down range.

    Mind telling us a little about it? Who makes it? What caliber? How much? How's it sound? What's it made of?

    Its for .22lr made by a-tec in Norway. It costs about 100$ including 25% VAT.
    Made of some alloy, very light.

    The also make similar suppressors for larger caliber.

    They are sold without restrictions here so importing to US should be hassel free.

    SHOULD be hassel free....YES.

    But I don't think it is.

    ^ That! Moderators are (for no good reason) frowned upon here in the states. Woe be the poor fool that tries to bypass the BATFE and import one.

    I bet the feds would consider each segment a separate suppressor, x$200 tax.

    No hassle other than the 10 years in federal PMITA prison for having an NFA item without proper paperwork.

    I don't think its possible to import a suppressor for personal use under any circumstances.
    Anyone know for sure?

    Ya each separate section would probably require a stamp. Although it would be worth asking the BATFE on an ruling before you immediately discount the idea.

    I will say that I am unaware of any imported suppressors that are currently on the market in the US, im assuming there is a reason for that.

    The modules need the rear part to attach to the barrel.

    Then we are back to PMITA prison. Owning a suppressor (or any NFA type item) outside of the laws is a very serious crime here.

    Assuming the ATF was on board with allowing importation of an NFA item, a dealer would have to do all the import stuff then transfer it to you the same as purchasing a domestically produced suppressor on a form 4.

    ^ That. There is no way (at least that I'm aware of) to legally bypass the dealer part. You are one (and still do the proper paperwork)...or you use one.

    Silencers cannot be imported for other than government use.

    Well there you go, the definitive answer from the guy who knows.

    Zak, do you know anything about the legalities of a modular suppressor?... separate tax stamp, et cetera?

    Considering the ATF considers extra baffles to be "silencers" by themselves (ie, even with no way to connect the firearm), I wouldn't be very hopeful about it. In any case, if someone was interested in getting as definitive answer as possible, he should send a letter to the ATF to get a technical interpretation of the items in question.

    I appreciate the added info, Zak. That's a good enough answer for me.

    Lots of silencer designs come apart for cleaning and maintenance. While each part is by itself a silencer, this does not mean that a person has more than one silencer simply because it comes apart or is modular.

    Looking at the picture, it seems that the individual parts can only attach to themselves and the only part that is intended to attach to the gun is the rear part. I think the ATF would call this item one silencer and allow it to be registered on a single ATF form. They cannot be imported for private use though.

    I said "extra baffles" on purpose.
