The airsoft silencers do not act at all like real silencers. If you put an airsoft silencer on a real gun, you'd be in for a surprise.

My understanding is that the foam filled ones are illegal in the states because of the wording of the law, it is along the lines of: It is illegal to alter the muzzle report of any firearm with a muzzle attachment without a license etc etc... This applies to Real guns, airguns, and paintball.

Canadian law is a bit different. I don't know why, but it's not illegal to have mock suppressors with foam filling.
