Neat Shotgun Supressor

They say they’re 100% legal, but I wonder about Massachusetts:

I guess the BATFE doesn’t count it as a standard can, so no tax stamp needed. The website is informative, but still kinda vague to me. Any insight?

    ” This heavily ported, 32-inch, screw-in barrelextension acts like a gas-burner, to reduce noise and recoil from shotguns while improving patterning.”

    I suspect if you shot down 6 miles of sewer pipe not much report would come out the other end either LOL I cannot imagine adding 32 inches to a normal shotgun barrel and trying to swing it on a target .

    Website says fully legal in all 50 states. Since it isn’t a suppressor, just a God-awful long barrel, makes sense.

    Like shooting CB .22 down a 24″ barrel.

    Why??? If I read it right, it pretty much makes the gun non-functional in a tight environment…

    Yes … a 48″ barreled 12 gauge is fairly silent.

    As ungainly as hell, but still silent. And legal.

    Personally, if I needed a silent 12g, I would buy an old Mossberg bolt action shotgun, and put a taxed can on it.

    MAYBE if it had an attached Bayonet Lug, AND we were fighting in the Napoleonic Wars, but for Modern Use? 12 Gauge Slugs for Sniping? I don’t think so.

    It’s really the same length and bore size as a late 17th to early 19th Century “fowling piece”, which is really what it is intended for (well, that and stand shooting).

    48″ barrel is less of a hindrance.

    So I’d be able to use my 12 guage 18.5″ Tactical shotgun for duck hunting?!? Outstanding!!!

    ;)

    It is for killing pest animals in a way the sheeple won’t be disturbed. I think that would make for an interesting Dirty Jobs episode.
