A supressor is very illegal, but for info purposes and a great way to make a "barrel extention" look here :P

Just use the same basic idea and scale it for whatever size your barrel is. Remember, with a combustion you will probally have to replace your filling every once in a whial, due to the fact that it will get crispy.

thanks for the reply.....but why would the suppresser be illegal?? i mean all it is doing is taking a bit of the noise away from the cannon....and you aren't shooting them at people anyways....

the police can't legally take the cannon away from you anyways....its not considered a firearm 8)

or at least thats the way it is in Canada :wink:

In Canada they could take it away from you if it exceeded the max power limit for BB guns (500 joules I think?).

And the reason they are illegal here in the states is because the law states that any device that can be attached to a real firearm that alters it's report by 2DB or more is considered a supressor and it's illegal.

sorry for the harsh sounding reply.....but the max limit is 500 fps, and even adding an addition to the barrel could change the noise level 2 db.....i mean my cannon is significantly quieter now that i added an extra 2 foot to the barrel :lol:

Well the 2db thing is how the law defines it... a piece of tape could make a 2db difference :P

well, a potato cannon is not considered a firearm in the states depending on how it is used (shot at people) so the supressor doesnt really apply.

at least thats what ive heard.

Correct, it isn't considered a firearm, but they consider an illegal supressor anything that COULD be attached to a real firearm.

You probally don't have to worry about getting in trouble... I think the laws more for people making great supressors for large rifles in a shop...
