    Would it dampen sound at least a little bit, if not a lot?

    Would this be creation or manufacture of a suppressor, illegal without the tax stamp?

    You can put a condom over a regular rifle barrel, to keep rain out, perfectly legally, so why shouldn't you be able to put one onto your flash hider?

    Just playin devil's advocate here.

    Legally if the sound is reduced by 1dB you've manufactured a suppressor. Is the ATF agent at the range gonna harass you about putting a rubber on the muzzle of your gun? Probably, but just in fun.

    Yeah, that's about what I figured.

    It's kinda hard to believe that the BATFE did not determine that the KX3 reduces sound by even 1 Db (since they gave their stamp of approval to it as a "flash hider").

    That sucker is loud. Just directs the sound to the front of the gun and keeps the concussion off of the shooter.

    My friends prefer the KX3 over my Izzy brake.

    It's always best to practice safe shooting.

    Don't forget - "Ribbed - for your enemy's pleasure."

    I like to turn them inside out so they're ribbed for my pleaseure.
    I guess I'm just selfish that way.

    Don't forget to use protection, ear protection that is.
