    I wouldn't have a can I could not disassemble.
    For multi calibers what calibers?
    I have a 9mm I shoot 9mm and 22lr thru.
    My 45 can sounds about the same if I shoot 9mm thru it.
    Thompson machine advertises a can that they claim works fine with 308,300blk,7.62x39 223, 22lr basically anything 30cal and under.
    The main thing is to make it out of the proper materials.
    One thing to remember is the overall length. if you register it as 12" oal it can be 11 1/2" 10" 8" and its ok. but if its 12.1" your in trouble. Thats one of their more stupid rules.

    This is kinda a thread hijack, but I like how the atf has a can defined as a silencer, yet i've been chastised several times about it being a "supressor"

    Are you guys saying that anybody not just a licensed manufacturer can build a silencer?

    Sure, no different then building an SBR or SBS. Just file the form 1 and don't start building until the form 1 comes back approved.

    Yes that is correct.
    I am licensed to build NFA items but anybody in Oklahoma can build their own silencer as long as they get the license (tax stamp, it is not a license) first!
    and engrave their information complete with a unique serial number on it.

    I have an engraver if you need yours engraved.
