I love folks who push the fringes by coming up with things like ‘arm braces’ and ‘non-AOW/SBS’ shotguns. And now the folks at Silencerco have a suppressed .50 cal rifle that is legal to buy in all 50 states and that you can even order online. The catch? It’s a muzzleloader. (Can you imagine what the inside of that suppressor is going to look like after a few rounds???)
I heartily applaud this ‘outside the box thinking’. I also fully expect some legislation to be forthcoming to stamp this thing down.
For the first time since the National Firearms Act (NFA) was created in 1934, civilians can enjoy suppressed shooting in all 50 states with SilencerCo’s latest innovation: the integrally suppressed Maxim 50 muzzleloader. In addition, this product can be purchased right now on the web with no regulation (no 4473, no $200 tax stamp, no photographs, and no fingerprints) and be shipped immediately to the customer with few exceptions.
