Back to the main issue, how do I find class 3 dealers in NC? Google didn't work.
Check the Bowers Recommended C2/C3 dealers list:
http://www.subguns.com/c2c3/c3state.htm

And you can also check using the Board of Inquiry:
http://subguns.com/boards/inquiry.cgi

FWIW, I've dealth with Ed Brady and he's a great guy, and a friend has done busines with Phill Flack who is also very easy to deal with.

Silencer? Suppressor!?? MUFFLER!?!?

I've always thought it was called a "cylindrical sound reduction device".

V4V -

While I've not dealt directly with Phil, I have a friend who bought a used M11-9 SMG from him about a year ago. His experience was quite good; the gun came in as good, if not better, condition than was described, and Phil was very helpful with the sale and paperwork. I wouldn't hesitate to deal with him; if you have any concerns consider this - he's on the Bowers/Subguns RDL. You don't get on the RDL easily, and if you screw anyone in the NFA world word will get around fast that you're a bad apple an to be avoided. You certinly won't make it to the RDL. If you still question his character, post a question on the subguns.com Board of Inquiry (its sort of the place to do a check for NFA sellers).

So will the 7.62 NATO suppressor work on my 7.62x39mm AK?

EDIT: Please refrain from any bickering over words like "clip" or "silencer".

Yes, it will work for 7.62X39. Most .30 cal cans have a bore diameter of around .375 anyway, so the .003 difference between Nato and 'X39 is negligible. The only problem with mounting a can to an AK is the fact that the AK barrel is so narrow, that there is sometimes not enough shoulder left for the can to tighten against.

Taking that short shoulder issue, your can may eventually index upon the FSB, or you can get a FS mounted can, and do things that way.

It's not worth mentioning

In terns of speaking about truth or fact, this is true. But where language is concerned, this doesn't apply. It is only because people agree on a word that becomes a word in the first place. That agreement is the mechanism by which a word is defined. Perhaps the term 'suppressor' will one day be sun-setted in favor of 'can'. ...hard to say.

ok so a .30 caliber will work, fine...
BUT, doesn't the AK have left hand 14x1mm threads?

I know AAC made a can for it back in the day, but it was in limited numbers...
No other can that i know of comes in that thread pitch...so how exactly is this guy gonna just buy a .30 cal suppressor and screw it on again?

Wait, do you mean TYPE on a subject? Perhaps CONVERSE?
I dont think anyone here is speaking...

I'll just add that to my list of words that are interchangable...

Mods, please lock this topic. Some people here evidently can't read well.

NO NO! Don't lock it! I want to see pics of V4's SAR with a sond level decreasing device on it! Seriously, don't lock the topic, very good info here, just delete all of TravisMaine's posts, and my posts that amount to nothing more than arguing over the vernacular invloved in sound suppression technology. Heck, even delete this post, just don't lock the thread!
