    This thing is staple gun quiet. I couldn't be more pleased with it. Great job on the finish too.

    That looks great sir! Have you tried any subsonic ammo through it yet? If not, you're in for a treat because there should literally be almost no sound except the action cycling. ;) I'm definitely going to have to get one of these eventually.

    Thanks. yep, we ran a 100 rounds through it when I got home. Decent group at 50 yards too. I'll figure out which sub sonics it likes best, Remington or CCI. Those are the easiest for me to get my hands on right now. May try others if needed. I'll try some standard ammo too, just for fun. :)

    Which can is that?

    What a good looking pistol! I love the fact it looks like a heavy barrel target gun to keep people from getting alarmed. So many folks are trained to think suppressors are BAD and that's a shame since they are so pleasant to shoot.

    GPZ1100 - Could you PM me some contact info for NFA investments?

    Also If you don't mind divulging the info, what did that set you back? Was it a conversion of a RMII you already had or did you get it lock stock and barrel?

    I am thinking that something very similar to that is going to be my first NFA purchase.

    I bet you've had to deal with your fair share of shocked remarks from the uninformed! ;) Chris, have you ever had any problems with anyone when at the range with some NFA stuff?

    remarks

    Most people are only curious when you bring neat toys to the range and are theones I love to let try and learn. However, you get the occasional folks that are convinced those are illegal and ask why you would want such a thing if you are not police or military. Quite often I have heard, "those are only for assassins".

    The root of the issue is a lot of people are uninformed about the legality of silencers and look only as far as hollywood for education. A real shame since shooting a suppressor has so many benefits. Reminds me of a talk I had while attending Blackwater North in Illinois. Seems swat in Chicago is not allowed to have suppressors and uses M4's for entry. Anyone who has experience with 5.56 understands that a single oversight with hearing protection during an op or training can cause permanent damage when it occurs indoors. The powers that be make the decision to not allow suppressors due to political correctness and the officers suffer.

    Yep, it is annoying dealing with the ill-informed. ;) I'm sure the average uninformed individual trying out the average handgun with a suppressor and standard supersonic ammo but without earpro will likely change their impression of suppressors very quickly! ;) They would likely ask if the "silencer" is broken. lol :rofl: I was surprised but, with all that I've learned of NFA laws, legality of suppressors, machineguns, etc over the past year or so, every single one of my friends was under the assumption such devices were illegal.
