Homemade Suppressor:how To?

hello my fellow OG'ers to make the SOCOM Suppressor you are going to need:
Maglite
hammer
screwdriver
tape
pvc that fits inside the the maglight or an old shirt

Step One.
firstoff you need to gut your maglite of anything so it is simply JUST the cylinder nothing else (note: make sure it is correct size:2D maglite) you will need to hammer the screwdriver into the internals of the cylinder to pop them out.
Step Two.
you need to either use tape to wrap around the inside of the maglite(enough to make a tight fit on your barrel) you can use pvc also, make sure it doesnt just slide into the maglite, you need pvc that will be hard to fit inside of the maglite so it doesnt fall out.. i used my old plastic suppressor that i made out of an airsoft suppressor to act as the pvc
Step Three.
you can rip an old shirt up and stuff it around the pvc...to secure the maglite suppressor to the barrel (not recomended but it will work)
or
you can use tape! which is very reliable (i used it) it is very easy.. you will need to use a thicker tape (ex. ductape) i mean c'mon scotchtape isnt gonna cut it..... you will need to wrap the tape around the inside of the pvc (sticky side sticking to the pvc) untill it is enough to sqeeze onto your barrel WITH resistance.. you want to make sure its hard to get on the barrel, that way its garrentued not to fall off while playing..
Step Four.
YOUR DONE! Pat youreself on the back and go grab an ice cold beer out of tha fridge (or soda pending on age)

Re: Homemade Suppressor:how To?

I have to admit that look is good. Man, you do simple things in such a short time and short number of steps. You're impressing me mate.

Re: Homemade Suppressor:how To?

ok, try this, take the end of flashlight, remove the glass and the silver then using a rag to help from scratching, put it into a vice ( former glass side down ) and squeeze enough to make it oblong withou distorting the threaded end and VOILA a baret .50 cal muzzle break

Re: Homemade Suppressor:how To?

I like it, it seems like a waste of a maglite though, unless you had one that doesn't work, (which i don't believe cause i threw mine off of my 3 story roof at a rock and it still works. It looks REALLY COOL though i just wish maglights were not so much money.

Re: Homemade Suppressor:how To?

Looks sweet but a word of warning. Law enforcement officials might not look to favorably on you making homemade suppressors.
