Pete build his Glock suppressor legally from parts. He explains the procedure below …
As many of your readers are already aware, it is perfectly legal to make certain types of NFA regulated firearms, including silencers (suppressors). As is the case of making any firearm, all local, state and federal regulations apply. And, before you begin any manufacturing, make sure you have a properly approved ATF Form 1.
This 9mm suppressor is six inches long, with 10 formed freeze plugs for baffles. For it’s length and cost (sub $200 not including the NFA Stamp) the sound reduction is impressive. Although slightly louder than its longer commercial cousins, it has a pleasant tone when shooting 147gr JHP ammunition.
Although this was a fun and satisfying project, it is not for everyone. To properly manufacture a suppressor requires the correct tools, skills, design/planning, and patience.
As always, safety and legality take precedence.
