    But seriously, if I have one I'd keep mum about it. Check the local newspaper, there's someone selling a manual on how to make one... PHP500.

    The LE would probably bleed you dry if you get caught with one. Not worth it.

    IMO.

    ;Q
    The seller's testing P.T. Barnum's saw, eh?
    That sort of material is still freeware on the web,
    if one is so inclined to dig it up.

    What do you use it for? Plinking? It is considered "illegal." You know what will happen next if you get caught with it.;)

    Hello one and all. Newbie here. I was reading you posts about the silencers, and I would just like to share my views. I have gone over the pertinent firearms laws in the Philippines, beginning with PD 1866 and its subsequent amendments, and there is nothing there which penalizes the use or possession of silencers or suppressors in the Philippines. So if there's no law which punishes it, then you can't be charged with possession of it, unless of course if you use it in connection with the commission of a crime.

    By the way, have any one of you ever tried to clean your 1911's by just squirting in wd-40 on/in the receiver area and then just shaking everything loose and allowing it to drip for an hour or two before re-assembling? Someone said to me once that it was okay to do this. Just wondering if any of you do it.

    Hope to meet you guys in person sometime.

    WD40 is a penetrating oil and acts more like a degreaser. It evaporates quickly and becomes sticky when it dries, leaving your firearm with inadequate protection and lubrication. If you will use WD40 and other similar products, make sure to wipe off all of it and re-oil your pistol.

    Gundog was a big fan of wd40 until recently when his pistol kept on jamming during a recent competition. When mcoliver checked his pistol, it was bone dry and full of lacquer gunk from the wd40.

    You probably have a lot of unused motor oil from your car's last oil change. I've personally used mobil 1 fully synthetic motor oil in my pistols w/ excellent results for several years now. Atty. taurus uses honda synthetic motor oil from his car's service check-up and he is very happy with the synthetic oil's properties. You will notice that it clings to the metal's surface and does not run and pool as much in the dependent portions of your firearms.

    Hi, Young Once :)

    You don't HAVE to break a law to get in trouble with the police, neh?
    PNP-FED's licensing guidelines are proof that firearms licensing law
    and actual application are two separate worlds.

    Still, IIRC, there was a NAPOLCOM memo in the 70's restricting sound
    suppressors. As useful as E. Topacio's reference is, it doesn't
    include all pertinent documents: it does not reproduce General
    Orders 7-B, and 7-C, which are the source of much of our woes
    today, even though they have been repealed by EO 194.

    Evey single gun store I've inquired with in the past has claimed sound
    suppressors are illegal, and yet... I got off the phone 30 mins ago
    with PNP-FED, and the guy I spoke with said: IHRC, suppressors were
    classified as accessories, but should be licensed (???)
    Anyway, I was referred to PNP FED Licensing juuuuust to make sure ...

    ...and wouldn't you know it:
    FED Licensing's phone just rang and rang and rang all day ;g
    (kanina pa'ng umaga ako tumatawag, e.)

    Doc's right.
    Besides, the point to WD-40 is water displacement (kaya nga WD-40).
    It allows you to liberate metal parts of corrosive moisture, so that
    you can proceed to lubricate/protect the piece properly with a
    real lube/protectant.

    It's further a bad idea to use WD-40 on a firearm, specifically because
    it is a penetrating oil. If it can avoid complete evaporation or drainage
    when within the confines of, say, the firing pin channel: it can
    thence reach and infitrate primers and even cartridge casings with
    dangerously unpredictable effects on the propellant.

    WD40 attracts dust like magnet attracts iron.

    Not to flame or anything, just curious, why do you need a silencer?

    hi guys...if you have a supressor, you can use your pistol in your backyard...providing you have an adequate backstop...a friend of mine uses his when he hunts for food while in the boondocks...

    I remember rifle shooters use silencers when they hunt for birds. There's probably a law where it is illegal. My bud used to have one in his Anshutz (sp?) and JBC has an option for his air rifle.
