Since suppressors are not inexpensive and there is a 4 to 6-month waiting period to apply for a Form 4. The suppressor has yet to be handed over to you during this process. The dealer can only keep it. As a result, some people have to wait and then receive some dusty inventory piled up for a year or two. By applying for a form1 to make your suppressor, you only have to wait 4 to 6 weeks to get approved. This route has aroused the interest of a large number of people. Many choose oil filters or solvent traps as the original model to modify.
An oil filter is designed to remove contaminants from engine oil, transmission fluid, lubricating oil or hydraulic fluid. Generally, it consists of a sealed metal housing with an internal paper filter element. Since the filter element that filters contaminants are rough paper, we can also use that to reduce noise. Some people have been inspired to adapt it into a homemade form 1 suppressor kit.
Yes, you can, but it's not recommended.
As you can see in the picture, this is a modified oil filter, and it does have a decibel reduction effect. But the downside is obvious, and it is very large, so large that it even affects your line of sight when shooting. To you, the hunting or training time brought a great negative impact.
One more thing, the available oil filter has several holes at the top, the centre hole is used to collect the oil flowing in from the engine, and the hole next to it is for the filtered oil to flow back to the engine.
However, when the oil filter is modified to the suppressor. The holes on the side need to be better sealed. These holes are the spray that goes straight to your face and the device. When you shoot, the gas explosion is caused by the airflow, and some micro-particles go straight to your face. If these holes are not sealed properly, it will seriously affect the life of your equipment. Most importantly, it poses a great threat to your safety.
The solvent trap collects residual contaminants from the muzzle when cleaning the firearm and is a very environmentally friendly device. The suppressor is used to collect the gas and noise generated by shooting.
Therefore, the internal structure of the two is very similar. The biggest difference is that the suppressor has a central hole at the end. The bottom of the solvent trap is sealed so that it can save the cleaning fluid. Remember, do not buy a solvent trap without a seal, as this will result in a high risk of taking it to jail.
