This has been witnessed by many surprised observers at the Mill on my 2 occasions there, and again this past weekend at a game where I compared it to a couple of TM P90s. The supressor makes a huge difference. It certainly won't make one stealthy, as the motor sound will give away the fact someone is shooting, but will kill muzzle report.
+1. I shoved a SOCOM supressor on mine. Makes a TON of difference.

ok that makes sence, but still, a fake one? even the one with the orange tip? like com on...
also, someone stated that opsgear ones are american crap, and airsoftparts are asian, WTF IS THE DIFFERENCE, how can a silencer that doesnt work be better than another one that doesnt work? makes no sence to me, the only thing i can think of is maybe the threads are fungooled.

Do they let you import a fake gun? No. So why would they let you import a fake suppressor? The orange tip thing is an American law.. and quite fankly what's to keep someone from painting an orange tip on a real suppressor?

And the reason the American ones are different is because it's actually illegal in the United States to put a suppressor on any airsoft gun if it's even remotely functional.

I have a piece of advice: Don't try and make sense of Canada's import laws.

That;s true only if your inner barrel length terminates before your silencer length does.

Also suppressors/silencres are prohib in Canada.

Yes, the real one is prohibited but not the airsoft one, which is just a piece of steel or aluminum tube fill with foam also you can make one by yourself.

Why don't people just think about this import shit: If you can't import and its against the law, then i won't say anything because i can't do anything about it.

Issue solved, move on with the freakin topic
