Well,to be frank I am not too worried about legal issues. I think I will wait and see what alpha comes up with. Not going to bother getting one if it only slightly dampens the sound.

Here's the ruling direct from the ATF. Follow the link to read the reality. Don't want to? It states that suppressors manufactured for paintball use are not NFA items unless you modify them for use on a firearm. Anyhow, here's the link to the ruling: http://www.atf.gov/regulations-rulin...ing-2005-4.pdf

There's a statement that keeps coming up in that, being "permanently attached". For this specific instance, the barrel has to be mounted to the marker in a way that it can't be removed without breaking it in the process. I've seen a few projects that fit this exact description, but I think that number is 2 markers. Not two marker types, but 2 markers total. I do like how well the decision was written though, so I'll add it to my collection of various paintball resources. Thanks for the link.

Yea, thats what I said earlier about them being integrated into the marker dude. It clearly states that if its not attached its a bad situation.

However, once the device is cut from the paintball gun, it can be used to diminish
the report of a firearm. As stated previously, the design characteristics of the
device are consistent with those of commercial silencers, and testing indicates that
the device functions to reduce the report of the firearm. Moreover, removal of the
device from the paintball gun indicates some intention to utilize the device for
something other than reducing the report of the paintball gun. Because the device
will no longer be permanently attached to an unregulated item, and because of its
silencer design characteristics, removal will result in the making of a silencer under
the NFA and GCA. This is consistent with the definition of “make” in the NFA, as
removal of the device results in production of a silencer.
However, the link posted by Alpha says something totally opposite and I am going to look into that information a bit more since it sets a new legal precedent making the old Taso units legal again.

The ruling listed was in reference to the BOA Concealor(spelling?) barrels IIRC. If you have to cut/chop/mangle it to make it fit a firearm then it qualifies under the ruling.

The old slip over units are a bit of a sticky wicket in that they require no modification to be adapted to use on a firearm. I don't have one to run it past the local alphabet agent or I would.

Over the years, every discussion on these move away from the construction of a silencer to what we see here today.....I would like to know, please, what is the best material to use inside to silence the sound energy? Should baffels by used or just one long tube?
