1. Browning type actions are suppressed all the time.Naybor said:Wouldn't work ~ couldn't work.
When fired, Miss Elsie's barrel moves backward, then cants down in the back to receive the next shell. A suppressor would totally mess up functioning and most likely tear her up. The only barrels you can attach a suppressor to is one that is unmovable (rigid) in the weapon.
At first glance, good idea, but Elsie is much too little anyway.
Google Nielsen device for an education.
2. Not all suppressors are a foot long.
Thompson Machine makes the Poseidon which weighs 4oz and is 1/3 that size.
This is not only cheap, but uses an ablative medium (water,gel etc) as well as wipes to increase sound suppression despite its small size. Its also user serviceable.
And there is also the Nano that DeGroat makes. Similar story.
It may not work on an LCP. But why on earth is there all this hate? I search for a threaded barrel and this is the first result on Google.
You don't think the LCP might be fun if it was hearing safe?
