View Full Version : question on CTcompliant AR

October 20, 2011, 08:50 AM
being in CT, we are restricted on the type or AR's we can own... of course..... threaded barrels specifically. muzzle breaks have to be permanently attached.

Is there a way i can leagally suppress my AR (Stag Model 1) rifle? Can i permanently attach a suppressor? Can i attach it by means other than threading? I have an idea of attachment that doesnt require threading, but i was curious if it can be done legally.....

I think the first question is whether you can have suppressors in CT - I don't know the answer to that.

Someone made a suppressor with a "quick-connect" method of attachment. I believe that the barrel had to be modified for this, I don't recall. I've seen muzzle breaks that have are quick-connect attached rather than screwed on.

CT looks good to go for silencers, I know they allow machineguns if they are full auto only, easily done in a M16.

Where I am a silencer can be permanantly welded to a short barrel and it becomes not a short barrel if the barrel/silencer overall is greater than 16". It is also a flash hider by regs federal, so you will need check with CT to know if this can be put on a semi auto.

I would contact this man, he will know all.

CT is suppressor friendly, as i currently own a YHM Mite for my Ruger 22/45... I also have design a suppressor for my Savage 10FP and am waiting to file my form 1 to build it. I would also like to do one for my Stag as well. I was thinking of a quick detach method for it.

Thanks Dave, for the link.... I'll have to contact him regarding this.

basically you are screwed:mad: unless you own a preban, that's why you see gun ct shops offering prebans @ 1500+ and out of state sellers offering off list prebans at such high prices:eek:.

remember--evil feature count-lug, threaded, yadda yadda. ct allows muzzle breaks or just a plain jane crowned barrel. a suppressor is also a flash hider--so forget about welding it on.

i am moving to sc from ct next month. i was down there last week, where i was fondling a tommy gun, ak47 and all the black rifles i could fathom. black rifles @ $500 to whatever. i am having a hankering for the tommy gun.;)

Suppressor mount muzzle brakes are available.

If you can have a perm attached muzzle brake you can have something like this for your suppressor mount.

I can't believe Willie is the only one posting in this thread that knows they are muzzle BRAKES, not breaks!
