    Hi

    New to forum so look forward to reading all your posts. I am trying to find a silencer for a winchester .22 rifle. You are not supposed to use them in Australia - are they easily accessible in the US? - I am travelling there in July

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    They are not illegal, but you need a special Tax stamp (Permit) to have one, which you couldn't obtain unless you are a US citizen, AND you wouldn't get it out of the country legally, and obviously you would have a problem in your own country..

    Besides, who the heck wants to silence a .22lr rifle?

    My idea: Forget about it
