    Fake Suppressor

    At the gun show this weekend there was a vendor selling Fake silencers ???? I asked him about them in the form of WHY, he said he was almost sold out and it made your M-16 look great and pointed to a M-16 with a fake silencer hanging behind him… Not sure if the M-16 was fake or not. Pop said you could use it and all your friends could pretend they did not hear it???

    I've seen some of those around, I think it could be cause of trouble, they are fake yes, but still they look real, while the truth comes out, one can be arrested, mugshot taken, etc. Not a good bargain I think.

    I was going to ask when it became cool to strap dead weight on to your rifle, then I forgot about the people at the range shooting with a scope, bipod, foregrip, massive light, laser, and can opener on their rails.

    The can opener is a handy tool for some of the rednecks around here. You don't have to put your rifle down to open your beer. J/K

    BTW there were people selling Ninja stuff like swords and death tools of one sort or another, and the ever wonderful CCW Badges ..... perhaps they could all get togeather and sell that stuff at comic book shows. The gun show ad said 600 tables but 140 of them were junk toys or tuff guy stuff?

    You could run into a problem with the "fake" silencers,Like GSG 5's when they went to the SD version,If ATF decides it fits into their silencer profile,whether it works or not,you can be charged

    Why would I want to bolt something onto my rifle that doesn't do anything? Makes no sense to me. Way too mall ninja.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    Agreed. Unless it has a purpose, well, it has no purpose being on a rifle.

    But they have all that cool stuff in the movies. I always think it is funny when people put stuff on their weapons that tries to imitate military gear, but doesn't at all. Like the "scopes" that look like ACOGs, but aren't.

    Granted, if you see me with my M4gery at the range, I am running a VFG (used correctly in conjunction with a military grade surefire), and an Aimpoint. Tacti-cool is the cool thing in shooting sports now, some of it is no doubt due to the large numbers of young combat veterans who want something similar to their combat weapon (why I have mine set-up like that), and some is certainly the "Black Ops" factor.

    But at least my vfg, surefire, and aimpoint have a practical use aside from looking "tacti-cool", a fake suppressor does not.

    The real question is this; lets say Rambo Joe pulls his AR 15 out of the bag at the range; it is equipped with the topic fake supressor, the guy next to him happens to be a State Police officer who all of a sudden would like to talk about the supressor;

    Question is this a good time for Rambo Joe to flash his CCW Badge????

    If the fake suppressor reduces the db by even one, it could be viewed as a real suppressor, albeit one of poor design.

    Why fake anything? I never did understand it and never will. As soon as it's discovered, ALL your credibility goes out the window.

    There are legal restrictions in place to own one, besides what is the point of using one in self defense?
