It "works" when it has foam, but not in the traditionnal way. Your mechbox/pistol slide will be loudder than the BB leaving the barrel, contrairly to a real gun, so it only changes the sound signature somewhat.

On a NBB it has a significant impact, like the TM MK23, else it's 90% esthetics.

Yes. Completely empty ones do nothing.

Actually, after consulting with the CBSA Prohibited Items Unit in Toronto last week, mock silencers are not restricted.

The reason a silencer is restricted is that it muffles the sound of a firearm. A mock silencer doesnt do this, there for it isnt a silencer.

Atleast according to the CBSA.
