    I am an operations manager for a CNC machine shop. We do a little bit of everything but one of my specialties is firearm components for the military and law enforcement. Ive also done some "remilitarization" of WWII machine guns for collectors. I will not do anything illegal. All the work I do is by the book. What is it that you are looking to do?

    I need to make suppressor baffles for a .22 and in MI they are legal.

    I just don't have a lathe or access to one

    You could manufacture him PARTS all day. No legal area there. Its when you ASSEMBLE the parts to make an NFA or registered item that you get into issues.

    Re: any machinists or gunsmiths out there?

    Everything we do is a choice and carries with it inherent risks. I am always pushing the envelope and regard many laws and rules as suggestions from society on how they would like me to behave. I really enjoy firearms and have one or two. A suppressor would be interesting to play with but for me it is not worth the mandatory ten year federal term to have an illegal one. If you are dead set on having one get a license last I checked they were $250.00, but it has been a while.

    never thought about making my own , good silencers are expensive . i wouldnt mind the 200 bucks half as much if i could make my own silencer instead for dropping 500-1000 dollars. i would buy a 300 blackout upper for my ar and use subsonic rounds for the shush factor.

    my ar is 223 and they arent subsonic , the 300 blackout is heavy enough to slow it down to subsonic .i would have to buy a 300 blackout upper .

    it's a lot cheaper to make your own. the designs are easy, but like i said, do not have a lathe. yes, you can make your own if you have the tax stamp, just have to take it to get engraved. not doing nothing too serious my first time, just for my 22

    you can make pretyy decent baffles with washers and freeze plugs. my biggest problem is getting threaded end caps on my tube with a center hole.

    Man, 22s velocity is already pretty low, would definitely take a bit of range off it....that being said, cheaper than dirt makes a hand crank modification for the semi auto 22s and also larger clips, I got my drums for my ar and ak there, and the 20 round for the 12gauge will have you grinning like a little kid

    There's a threading kit I believe you can get at a hardware store that would suffice
