There's been a fair few press horror stories about people being able to 3D print guns which is largely just media hype and bullshit, but I guess this is a fairly interesting way to get round the law on selling silencers... All you'd need to do is send the STL file for this design to a 3D Print agency (and call it an air flow restrictor or something) and for about 24 you could have 2 of them

The thing I like most about this design is that it's printed as a single part, so you couldn't actually make this part on a CNC machine/ lathe and milling machine, you'd have to make it in several parts.

I've gone for a 4.8mm hole as a starting point (obviously .177 only ) and the internal volume would probably only suit a springer, it would need more volume for a PCP I'd imagine.

I know very little about silencer design btw, just having a play and making some assumptions (which might be wrong)
