    just interested for caliber .30
    In Germany round 600.- Euros including gunsmith work.
    A-tec and Hausken are the manufaturer mostly.
    And -here a silencer is not allowed in every region.

    In RSA we sell custom made silencers, color coded and made to fit for RAND 3500.

    In the UK you can pick up a decent example for £200-400. Threading the rifle varies, it depends who you go to. I've paid from £50 to £150.

    I bought a new one for my .22-250 last week. The rifle is already threaded so total was £230. Not bad really. They're easy to get here, most shooters have them on their hunting rifles.

    Every Tom, Dick and Harry in South Africa with a lathe now makes silencers, or suppressors if you want to call it that. Some are very heavy and cumbersome.

    I hate nothing more than seeing a beautiful rifle butchered for these things, but some situations require them. I have one rifle, a Tikka CTR .308 with a factory threaded barrel that I use with a Hausken J184. They are by far the best made and lightest silencers Ive used. The J184 protrudes 4” past the muzzle, the rest being over the barrel, and only weighs 285 grams. They are about R4500 now, and come with a variety of barrel nuts to be used with different barrels

    We pay about 5-10 years in prison in Canada.

    Not to go completely sideways on your thread Foxi.

    My friend hunted this Bushpig. He was tickled because there were so many things about the hunt that were totally illegal at home in Canada. It was just so strange to him.

    Almost exactly what I paid for mine as well.
    .30 caliber (up to 300WM full-auto) for ~$700.
    .22LR (rated for full-auto) for ~$300.
    Plus $200 tax stamp for each and waited 8-9 months for BATFE to approve.

    unfortunately, the concept is too sensible for Australian politicians to understand.

    the lefties and govt here will have you believe that suppressor ownership = mass murderer in the making

    I can relate to this. On one of the days of my hunt we headed out a little late with the intention of getting back after dark. They'd brought a spot light and were spotlighting all the nocturnal animals just to see them and I'm sitting there in the bakie with a rifle with a suppressor and rounds in the magazine. They had to keep reasuring me that what we were doing was legal. We came across some Jackals the land owner wanted shot, I asked again if it was legal. It's just so different in Africa.
