Default Anyone else own suppressed/silenced weapons?

I have two suppressed .22's so far and i love em! My first was a Siq Mosquito with an Advance Armament Pilot suppressor, and i just picked this GSG 1911 up about a month ago, and my new Silencerco SS Sparrow came in today, so i had to go put some rounds through it, lol. Now i just gotta wait for my paperwork to be processed by the ATF and then i can bring it home with me!

If anyone is considering buying a .22 can, look no further than this one! I have shot just about every make/model of .22 silencer out there and none of them even come close to being as quiet as this one is! It's also the first multi-caliber and full auto rated .22 can out there. It's will handle .22, .22 magnum. .17HMR and the 5.7 FN pistols. It's a full stainless steel 5 piece design that you can take apart and clean yourself. It's so quiet my friend who is the class 3 dealer i buy from, is ordering himself one after we fired mine side by side with his AAC Aviator, lol.

Don't have any pics, but I once made a failed attempt at building a silencer out of instructions in a book, it kinda worked, but I didn't do it 100% right, so only slightly, ended up tossing it, didn't really work, have no real use for it, and it was just plain fugly. Oh yea, here's the book I used-

Yes you can. Michigan allows pistol classification of any weapon with a pistol grip and does not regulate them. It can be custom built or purchased and is 100% legal.

Any pistol with an attached shouldering device (stock) that helps control recoil, would then become an SBR. Unless, the now SBR receives a barrel atleast 16 inches long.
And once at that point, why didnt you just buy a rifle in the first place?

EDIT:
SBR's must also get the $200 tax stamp

I made one a long time ago, prob back when it was legal. When installed on a 10/22 with subs chambered the gun was actually quieter than a BB gun. The only noise audible was the firing pin and the bolt cycling another round ( same noise you would hear by chambering the first round before firing) I was very impressed.

I have since been around a few pistols and rifles with supressors and I don't see why they are illegal. I see far more benefits than cons to them, but I guess we are all safer now since I need a permit and owe a tax to the .gov.

I'd recommend not doing that, lol. If you are going to build your own suppressor, you need to fill out a BATFE Form 1, and send in your $200.00 BEFORE you ever start working on it! If not, and you get caught with it, it's gonna be 10 years in prison and a $250,000.00 fine for you. Even if you get caught with the parts to construct one you can be prosecuted. It's not worth it, so if your gonna do it, do it the right way. Just some friendly advise!
